What can you do?
1. Mutual aid - donate to orgs that offer support for women seeking abortion esp those who need to travel to another state.
2. Make sure the ppl especially young ppl around you know that you are available to help confidentially if they need abortion care.
3. Attend peaceful protests happening across the country. Mobilizing empowers us & reminds us & them of our potential power.
4. Flood the offices of your state reps NOW (strategic visits, phone calls, texts, tweets) and tell them to oppose any state restrictions on abortion.
5. Organize at the local level with groups focused on strengthening the voice of progressive women and girls to advocate.
6. Make sure your D.A. knows that how you will vote in their next election if they participate in prosecuting women who seek abortion care or those who assist

Hello @unclelukereal1. Apparently I’m late to this. Given what I do, it’s important to me that I not allow the cynicism and lack of information suggested by your question & that I suspect many in our communities share, to go unchallenged. Your question is an opportunity. THREAD
There are elections for thousands of offices happening this year at the local, state & federal lvl. When we fail to vote in these elections, we cede power. My mantra to voters in our communities is #LeaveNoPowerOnTheTable Your seem to be in Florida, so I’ll use it as an example.
In Florida, scores of school boards are electing members. As you may be aware schools boards are currently engaged in fights focused on keeping students from learning Black history. So-called “anti-CRT” bans.…

While I appreciate the emphasis on 'collective good' - WWII era infant feeding advice reflects dominant approaches in the medical community - reinforced by industry marketing - that systematically undermined breastfeeding with profoundly harmful and unequal consequences. 1/
Although thankfully we have made significant efforts to reverse at some of this damage, part of the reason why we are dealing with the current crisis is precisely because of the legacies of early and mid-20th century approaches to infant feeding! Racism central to this. 2/
There is a much larger conversation that needs to be had about the colonial destruction of Indigenous lifeways, including the undermining of breastfeeding around the world by White European settlers. 3/

Starting a thread to aid @JohnsHopkins in transparency on their response to complaints of widespread ableism and the dismissals of 5 disabled counseling students.

The first article that came out features 4 of the 5 disabled students, all dismissed from a small grad program within a 7 month timeframe.

#AcademicAbleism #HigherEd #Baltimore…
Despite extensive fact-checking done by the Newsletter, the School of Education dean’s letter to the editor called our claims unfounded. He requested the article be taken down.

April homebuilder survey results are here. Top themes: 1) Demand is slowing, namely entry-level due to payment shock. 2) Investors are pulling back. 3) Ripple effect of rising rates starting to hit move-up market. Market commentary to follow…
#Dallas builder: “Interest lists are shrinking or buyers are truly pausing.”
#Houston builder: “Many first-time buyers simply no longer qualify with the increase in interest rates, as their debt-to-income ratio gets out of whack.”

We @JBREC just surveyed 400+ flippers about #fixandflip conditions in partnership with Flatiron Realty Capital and @SundaeHQ.
Key takeaway: There is a TON of competition for deals right now.
#LasVegas flipper: “Market is oversaturated with inexperienced investors due to an increase of “gurus.” Supply is low, demand is high, and prices are inflated 20%+ over ARV. Not sustainable.”
#Phoenix flipper: “Phoenix is a very active market with home prices on the rise. The competition is aggressive.”

Based on research and analysis, #Hatewatch has identified "The Z Man," a prolific white nationalist personality who makes money churning out racist propaganda and rubs shoulders with white nationalists – without ever showing his face.…
John Christopher Zander, 55, a software salesman residing in #Baltimore has inhabited The Z Man persona since at least 2013 based on review of public records and leaked documents.

Since 2013, he's also published an independent site called The Z Blog.…

Monthly pulse of resale housing market still rapid according to 4,500 agents we just surveyed. Top 3 themes: 1) Bit of market normalizing. 2) Skittish sellers fearing nowhere to move. 3) End of travel ban boosting international buyers. Commentary across the country to follow…
#Houston resale agent: “A lot of people are not listing because they don't know where they are going next. Seems that many people listed too high even for a sellers' market, so I am seeing more price reductions now than earlier in the year.”
#Orlando resale agent: “Our buyer pool is increasing. We see more buyers from the north connecting with us as they plan to visit the area from the fourth quarter to the first quarter of next year.”

Just published September home builder survey results (sales, prices, costs, communities, etc.). Big themes: 1) Supply chain, supply chain, supply chain. 2) Monthly price hikes no longer the norm. 3) Some of the hottest markets sounding toppy. Market commentary to follow…
#Austin builder: “No end in sight for labor & material issues. Told by logistics guy last week that his company believes it will take at least a year to get the supply chain back to working.”
#Austin builder: “Availability of windows has limited closings this year & availability of appliances has caused closings to slide to a later month. Availability of paint is stressing Q4 closings & causing even more bunching toward late in the year.”

Here's a housing🧵to chew on over weekend. Mid-June update from 100+home builders across country. 1) rumblings of price ceiling. 2) slightly shrinking pool of qualified buyers. 3) some home releases not selling out immediately. 4) normal summer slowing as vacations take priority.
#Austin builder: “Some interest lists are shrinking & others are not. Seeing buyers who are no longer able or willing to afford the monthly payment. Definitely seeing attrition here. Frustration that prices continued going up without an opportunity to purchase.”
#Dallas builder: “Interest lists are definitely shrinking because of pricing. Some drop off is happening due to price. But the re-sale market is still so tight it hasn’t dropped substantially. Extremely concerned about pricing going forward.”

If you’ve studied white supremacist lynch mobs then what we are seeing is devastatingly familiar - including the defiance vs. law enforcement. When the MD Gov called the National Guard to arrest the men who lynched George Armwood in 1933 another mob formed to challenge the Guard. Image
This stand-off is in the town of Salisbury, MD a month after Armwood was lynched. The mob even turned a fire hose on the the Guardsman who were there to arrest the suspected lynchers of Armwood. This is what lynch mobs were like. Are like. Image
Is it still a lynch mob if they don’t succeed in lynching? Yes. I wrote about the near-lynching of George Davis in 1932. Lynch mobs went to 4 different county jails on the Eastern Shore of MD looking for him after a white woman alleged Davis attempted to assault her. Image

In the 1930s it was understood that if a Black man was accused of a violent crime against a white person on the Eastern Shore of MD, local officials would need to get him to this Baltimore City jail to keep him from being lynched.…
Euel Lee narrowly missed being lynched in Worcester County in 1931 by being taken to the Baltimore City jail. Same for George Davis. Lynchers looked for him across 4 counties on the Eastern Shore in 1932.
George Armwood was taken to the Baltimore City jail for “safekeeping” after being accused of a violent crime against a white person. Here he is in the custody of a state police ofcr. He was returned to the local jail on the Eastern Shore the next day.

Her team of attys were Charles Hamilton Houston - this was his last case; Thurgood Marshall; & Donald Murray who had been the plaintiff in Houston & Thurgood Marshall’s successful case challenging segregation at the law school in 1935. Murray was now NAACP counsel in #Baltimore.
Marshall & Houston had to sue multiple schools in the @UofMaryland system to admit Black students. They won Murray’s admission to the law school in 1935. It was Marshall’s first successful civil rights case. 15 years later they all fought to get #EstherMcCready into UMD Nursing

#Baltimore we gotta talk about our schools reopening in the fall: here is what I think - (and if I am wrong, let me know)
I don’t think Baltimore City loves our children enough to protect our children if they go back to school in the fall
#Baltimore our children have been in buildings for years that are falling apart without central a/c or heat. They cannot drink out of the water fountains but can use this lead infected water to wash their hands even though the bathrooms don’t have liquid soap or sanitizer.
How can we expect failing schools to provide masks daily, enough sanitizer to be used hourly, thermometers to check temperatures, and a sterile area to hold students who show symptoms? How will they keep students, teachers, administrators, and staff safe? 3/4

Hey ya’ll! As we support Black companies and creatives and more using #BuyBlack, I want to highlight Black museums who could use our $$$ support because we know now more than ever, we need to invest in the institutions that sustain & educate us on OUR history.

Keep in mind, because of COVID, it’s been predicted that 13% of museums won’t open back up. Due to a lack of funding, a large number of those museums may be Black museums. We can’t afford to lose our history and our story. #BuyBlack ⬇️
When your allies reach out to ask questions about Black history and culture, tell them to #PullUp by donating to a Black historical site or museum in appreciation of doing the work of telling our story. Here’s a SHORT list:
