The Galveston City Council has approved a special use permit to allow a developer to operate a somewhat controversial substance abuse recovery facility on the island’s West End.

The council members unanimously approved the facility, 11279 Stewart Road, on the condition owner Edward Jackson would make sure the lighting was dimmed or off overnight, so it wouldn’t disrupt neighbors.

Implicit racial bias training is a must. Implicit, or unconscious, racial bias is pervasive in society, and can be easily tested these days with psychological tests. I think anyone who actually cares about equal treatment would be happy to know about their unconscious biases and be happy to learn how to recognize and avoid them.
