I am looking forward to the conversation about #13th tonight. Because we are going to extend the conversation of the film between #histflix & #docuhistory over two screening over several days, I am going to keep a long thread connected to the film.
I think this explanation of the use of the language of the US Constitution to oppress people by @TheTattooedProf is something we often over look when we teach USH K-12. To all of our detriment! #histflix
For Ss and Ts, dropping in a reference to Oscar Micheaux’s Within Our Gates. Whenever Birth of a Nation gets taught I Think WOG should also be taught so Ss can learn about the very active resistance by African Americans to Griffith’s racist propaganda. #histflix #docuhistory

The state of our state is growing in strength, stability & new opportunity for generations to come. We are moving in the direction we all want to go: Top Ten in the Nation! #OklaSOTS20 #OkTopTen
It's because of the hard work of entrepreneurs, dedication of teachers, compassion of non-profits, community involvement of the churches, & state agencies that are willing to make the tough & selfless decisions for the future of our great state. #OklaSOTS20
Our State’s general revenue fund is estimated to be down almost 1% versus fiscal year 2020. But we have nothing to fear, so long as we remain vigilant in recognizing our needs, planning for our future & shedding waste where operations are outdated or redundant. #OklaSOTS20

I finally forced myself to watch @ava’s #13th on @netflix. I know I am massively tardy to the party, but racial documentaries are hard for me. It was, of course, devastating, so I’m glad I’m grading at home today so I can process, seethe, mourn & completely avoid wypipo.
My first reaction was “Fuck, this [the systemic oppression of black people & destruction of black lives] is never going to end. Not until we upend every last piece of the existing systems.” Then I sat overwhelmed & crying bc the earth/humanity may not last long enough for that.
And let’s be clear, I read The New Jim Crow years ago (which is why I felt like I didn’t *need* to watch 13th), but watching the documentary tie these legacies to images/audio of #NotMyPresident brought it home in a new way emotionally for me rather than just intellectually.
