This past weekend we were shocked to find tragedy had struck in our home community in the devastating fire at the Ghost ship warehouse and artists' space in Oakland, California. The Haas Institute sends our deepest condolences to those who lost loved ones, friends, and colleagues. We were deeply saddened to hear that several who perished were from our trans community, along with so many youth, including several from UC Berkeley. Our thoughts, prayers, and support goes out to all who are suffering and grieving this devastating loss of life.

Obasogie, the new chair of the Haas Institute Diversity and Health Disparities Cluster. Professor Obasogie, who is also Professor of Bioethics in the Joint Medical Program and School of Public Health, spoke with us about his research on racial disparities in health, the myth of "colorblindness," and how blind people "see" race.
