But instead, the senseless acts of violence of a gunman at spas near Atlanta once again focused on a boiling issue in America: racism and its dangerous and deadly impacts.

Biden will now meet with members of the Asian American community in Georgia as he and others denounce the violence and discrimination the community has suffered since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.

It is a bitter memory that, in the midst of all the changes and advances of the last year, efforts to combat racism must continue.

Meanwhile, U.S. state and local leaders continue to deploy Covid-19 vaccines in a cropped manner, with varying degrees of success, as the threat of new dangerous variants and a potential third increase appears.

Back in Washington, true bipartisanship still feels like a pipe dream. A measure by the House to award Capitol and Metropolitan police officers the Congressional Gold Medal for their work protecting the U.S. Capitol on January 6th practically past: 413-12. Still, these dozens of “no” votes, all from Republicans, reveal a continuous, growing chasm.
The problem referred to semantics: the bill referred to the riot as “insurrection.” Which, to put it bluntly, does era.
On the US-Mexico border, where the Biden administration is located still refuses to describe the situation as a “crisis” despite the 14,000 migrant children detained, there is a clear bipartisan agreement that the current configuration is unsustainable. Republicans, Democrats and bipartisan groups have traveled to the border to highlight the situation.

The point: Many times this week it seemed like the American divisions were in sight.
