Happy Friday! The new Health and Human Services spox has a history of racist tweets, six senators are urgently calling for bias-mitigation training for the police, and actor John Cho fears for his safety and yours.

But first, your Ramadan-themed week in review, in Haiku.

It begins with a
sliver in the sky. A call
to contemplate and

fast, now a signal
to stay home, every room a
mosque. The time between

sunrise and sunset
has new Zoom rules for allies,
all sweet and helpful.

Don’t snack on camera.
Be mindful of prayer time. And
everyone can take

this time to reflect,
feel grateful! One quick iftar
tip: No bleach smoothies.

If you celebrate, may your Ramadan be as bright as ever. Wishing everyone a safe and contemplative weekend.
