GAO Report Missing Monetization Incentives To Segregate Kids

The U.S. Government Accountability Office has issued a report on racial disparities in child welfare, at the request of U.S. Representative John Conyers, Jr., and it was released on my birthday.

Slow, my beating heart.

The report begs the question, "Why are minority children treated differently?"

I answer this question in the most simplistic term for all to understand:  MONEY

It works like this.  Federal law and policy pays money for "the best interests of the child" but pays even more for the darker kids.

They call them "targeted populations" and the funding source is Medicaid.

Why?  Because chattel ranching is woven into the fabric of this great nation.

I have previously addressed the correlation between funding and melanin content of an impoverished child.

Civil Rights Data are skewed based upon child welfare reporting policies of SACWIS because everything at HHS ASPE in child welfare is run by the same folks who used to run child welfare, so there is no need to change anything.

God forbid that the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services actually did something crazy like, share Civil Rights Data and coordinate because that would violate confidentiality laws in child welfare.

Remember way back when the GAO put out a public call to action, requesting people to send in their horror stories about foster care?

I do and I also remember when the GAO said they could not use the case files sent in by the public because of confidentiality laws of child welfare.

Then one must take into consideration each particular state and how that state executes its departmental civil rights data initiatives to even solicit data in child welfare.  The report identifies its weaknesses in methodology of data reporting, as Civil Rights Data collection is a dataset which has only been in existence for the last 5 years, with the traditional 2 year federal lag.

Always remember that the States Medicaid Fraud Control Units do not touch Medicaid Fraud in Child Welfare.

The U.S. Child Welfare System has never, ever, been properly analyzed by anyone other than myself which is why no one flinches when there are cuts to child welfare.

Child welfare is an uber secret operation which can only be examined from the belly of the beast, and I am an original source.

If anyone wishes to witness the stages of privatization policies being implemented, just watch child welfare.

Religious Freedom Restoration Act was based on a child welfare case.

Social Impact Bonds are privatizing schools and monetizing child poverty with absolutely no oversight because you cannot audit God and child welfare information is exempted and excluded from external scrutiny by law.

This is the greatest birthday present a gal like me could ever possibly dream about!

Someone just got issued serious brownie points, but we still have much more work to do, as this only scratches the surface of child welfare.
