#Hatecrimes, hate incidents, general intolerance is on the rise. How do people & communities heal from these experiences? That's our focus today. And we have a great panel who'll share their expertise with us. Watch the livestream here staring at 11am PST.…
Today's briefing is being moderated by EMS Co-Director Julian Do, who leads our Stop the Hate campaign, a collaboration of ethnic media across California reporting on the impact of rising hate in local communities.
"The question is, how do people and communities find a way to reconcile with horrific acts perpetrated against them, their family, their communities," says Do. All our speakers agree on one point: the importance of documentation.

Important THREAD on UK’s Black woman MP @HackneyAbbott’s letter to @theobserver/@guardian and White Britain unleashing opportunistic attacks on the MP.

Hey #medtwitter @MedTweetorials , let's talk about #MPOX (formerly monkeypox)
✴️Mpox is caused by an orthopoxvirus (like smallpox)
✴️ Endemic to sub-Saharan Africa; recent outbreak in Europe and the Americas
✴️ On 8/4/22 the US declared the outbreak a public health emergency
@MedTweetorials 2/
We will be using the term “mpox” in place of the complete phrase “monkeypox” in line with the November WHO decision to change the term in recognition of racist and stigmatizing language used in association with this condition in 2022
@MedTweetorials 3/
Q: Which group has the highest number of #mpox cases in the US?

A guide to being a #folkreporter with @BlackByGodWV - a 🧵:
Good ole fashion #folkreporting is done by YOU the citizen. Witnessing is one of the most important things we as citizens can do to keep our elected officials and community accountable. 1/
When forming a thread on what you are witnessing, it is important to tag the elected officials you are covering when ever that is an option. Including relevant hashtags is also important. If you are at a #countycommission meeting let folx know! Tag your municipalities as well. 2/
Let people know you are a folk reporter! Include the following at the begining of your thread:

Small #ttrpg thread about how to not address topics in a racist manner when you're writing them:

When I was writing one of the last adventures for #GreatWyrmsOfDrakha (Nixis's one,) I had great plans to make it a powerful statement about disparity & "age warfare."
My idea was to
to make a point of the dangerous practice of nativism as a way to counter elders from perpetuating themselves in position of responsibility (not 'power.')
One of the main "arguments" of those in power was the weakened nature of the young born outside the home world, reflected in
a series of very physical traits (which included a sickly reddish tone yo their skin... because of the Red Moon's pernicious nature & the lack of "vaala." (very esoteric concept to go into detail here.)
The product owner was very wary about it & adverse to the concept because it

1/🧵Russia's invasion of Ukraine has prompted a massive humanitarian crisis. For many the feeling of helplessness is overwhelming 💔.

Here are some great ways to help (some not even requiring any money).

Please retweet & share 🇺🇦🌻💙💛#Ukraine #StandWithUkraine #HelpUkraine Image
2/🧵Ways to help include donating to Ukraine via a registered charitable organization, donating money /goods / points / miles, fundraising, volunteering, attending rallies, contacting MPs, fighting disinformation online, etc. 🇺🇦💪#Ukraine #HelpUkraine
3/🧵Money is still the most effective gift.

Most charities prefer donations of cash due to issues with donated goods (logistical hurdles, custom regulations, transport costs, lacking capacity of nonprofit teams to sort the goods, carbon footprint, etc.). 💲🇺🇦#GiveMoney #Ukraine Image

I was violently detained by police for carrying my sleeping infant daughter into my home w porch lights off. A white neighbour called the police on me for "breaking into my own home". The cops didn't hug me. They had me on the ground, screaming obscenities #WhitePrivilege
The experience of Black, Indigenous and other people of colour and the poor with the police in 🇨🇦 could not be more different from the nauseating displays of affection and support given to the white supremacists holding this country hostage. We have always known this.
People are messaging me that I lied about my experience with the police to get likes. I didn't. This is the lived experience of Black, Indigenous and other people of colour and the poor. Just because you haven't experienced racism personally, doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

#PeterSloly was the 1st Black Police Chief in Ottawa’s history. There were high hopes in #BIPOC communities he would spearhead reform following the 2016 death of #AbdirahmanAbdi after an altercation with police. #Sloly faced significant pushback within the force from the getgo.
In 2020 I spoke with #MattSkof the head of the Ottawa Police Association after Skof took issue with “Sloly's assertion that systemic racism exists within policing and accused him of scapegoating a rookie officer accused of racially profiling a Black driver.”
Here’s my 2020 interview with #MattSkof head of the Ottawa Police Association in which he takes issue with then #Ottawa Police Chief #PeterSloly’s assertion that #systemicracism was a problem in policing.…

Our paper, Racism & Cardiology: a global call to action published in @CJCOpen.…

As Black History month ends, we look at how racism & racial bias influence CV health of ethnic minorities with viewpoints of cardiologists from 🇬🇧🇺🇲🇨🇦@DrQuinnCapers4
There are 3 major forms of racism:
1️⃣Explicit:easily detectable,easy to condemn
2️⃣Implicit:unconscious association of positive/negative attributes w/different racial groups
3️⃣Structural:results from yrs of policy-making;gives advantage to some racial groups at expense of another
Racism, Health, and Heart Disease in Canada
Recent reports, incl Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report (2015), state that the poor health statistics of the country’s First Nations, Inuit and Metis peoples are due in part to systemic racism and discrimination

Said in response to a whole population of hs students who collectively commited horrid acts of anti-Black American racism.
See below.
It's just like a white supremacists to say "Sorry, didn't know better, please teach me".
Parents + fellow students are demanded suspension. 👏🏾

White and Latino students at #Salinas high school made a IG page featuring images of them being violently aggressive towards a Black doll they named #Shaniqua

Apparently they didn't know this was wrong so they just need a racial sensitivity workshop. ImageImage
These incidents clearly didn't stem from a singular, sudden idea. It takes a deep rooted hatred of Black Americans to cause something like this to spread within an entire high school. #salinas

We have retained Anil Kapoor, one of Canada’s leading criminal and constitutional lawyers, to lead a legal team being assembled as we speak, to launch a legal challenge before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, most likely by way of injunction. 2/6…
We are bringing a challenge as quickly as possible, in order to restore peoples’ freedom from arbitrary police stops. Reg 294/21 codifies the odious “driving while black” police stop, adding a “walking while black” offence -- legalized carding, and that’s unconstitutional. 3/6

Announcement from @fordnation sank my heart today. As an ER doctor, person of color and #Scarborough native, I feel defeated 😢. The measures are not going to get wave 3 under control. #BIPOC #ERdoc @SHNcares @torontolife @JustinTrudeau @SCMirror 1/
When I landed as an #immigrant in #Canada, my life started in #Scarborough. My parents (#heros) struggled to find jobs that matched their education. That didn't stop them from working hard / hustling even if it meant 2 jobs at times to keep bills paid and food on the table. 2/
My family lived in an apt building that had mostly racialized/middle-low income families (#affordability). Not much social distancing when large crowds wait for elevators (#EssentialWorkers) or use the shared laundry facilities. This pandemic brings back those vivid memories 3/

In light of the Boston police Union leader child abuse, this is very plausible, even probable. I have 2x, on behalf of someone else, reported, via Title IX - the woman or gay man was not feeling safe enuf to report. Yes, there is blowback when one reports. But we can’t be silent.
I am a mandated reporter as a #pediatrician. I *must* report for my patients or face legal consequences. Am same for staff, students, trainees. But in #EmergencyMedicine who do I call if a child may be unsafe at home? Sometimes, cops. Are cops safe?…
I have seen #mentalhealth and entire life paths destroyed by abusers preying on children like: This happened to too many people I know. I have seen institutions intimidate, mislabel, bury stories of the victims. (Some predators wait until 18th birthday.)…

When you want to know why
-women & minorities leave medicine
-why research lacks data to serve needs of anyone not white & male
-why different mortality rates in patients by gender, race, SES

this is why

Is insidious
but highly effective
-different access

As women, LGBTQ, minorities, disabled enter or advance in medicine, this professor’s public stance will be cited to mislabel having #ethics as “lacking #professionalism…

Hi #fundraisingtwitter. Some people seem confused as to why I, and may others, consider Mr. Ahern's comments and sessions offensive. I've had some genuine questions, so let me do my best to explain here.
Last month a conference called "Inspire Webinar Series" came out featuring a series of fundraising "legends". @_David_Lacey rightfully pointed out that 19 of the 22 panelists were white men. It was called out on Twitter and LinkedIn for being insulting.
Some speakers like @ToastFundraiser upon learning this stepped down. Instead of following suit, Tom Ahern wrote this post that included the words "In half a decade or less, the same worth of "listening-to" speakers won't be male or white." He also told everyone "F U" at the end
