#DeepikaPadukone: #No_Hasty_Actions_Please

Warning: #Hash_tags in this article are purely coincidental and aren't meant to be taken seriously. Do not Google their meanings. You will end up on same page.
While the whole Hindu Right Wing is baying for Deepika Padukone's blood, I have a different take. I cannot shun this responsibility to post my thoughts about Deepika. I advocate no #Hash_Tea actions against her. Let me elaborate.
We should never forget Deepika is a woman of #substance. She is made of sterner #stuff. She's managed to create her own identity away from her father's shadow and done her best to #weed out nepotism in cinema field.

Songhai Empire (c. 1464–1591)

The Songhai Empire during the 15th and 16th centuries was a kingdom that controlled the Western Sahel. It was one of the most important states in African history at its height.
The state is known for its historiographic name, derived from the Songhai, its leading ethnic group and ruling elite.

The Songhai Empire was located in south of the Sahara Desert in Western Africa and along the River Niger. It reached to the Atlantic Ocean at its peak well
over 1,000 miles from the country in present-day Niger. The Songhai capital city was the city of Gao which was situated on the banks of the Niger River in modern-day Mali.

The Kingdom of Songhai existed from 1464 till 1591.

1/ A very compelling story about how #Women's #Pain & especially #Black women's pain is dismissed and disregarded by the healthcare system.…
2/ The story begins with a woman with sickle cell & her horrifying experience in the hospital. It also discusses pain from syndrome's unique to women, like endometriosis or fibroids.
3/ Pain is a feminist issue. #PainToo must be believed. First, there is the dismissal of women's accounts of their own bodies, tracing to a history of dismissal of symptoms due to absurd misconceived views of #Hysteria in women. Trans folks get the same treatment, or worse.

Dear #poverty scholars, it is time for a reckoning. It is long overdue. #Discrimination, #structuralinequality & the lived experiences of the poor is not a tangent, it is core to "mainstream" poverty scholarship.
@nyuwagner L. Mead’s @springerpub Society paper "Poverty & Culture" perpetuates inaccuracies, ideologies & power imbalances that distract productive discourse & policy innovation. This treatise insults poverty scholarship; no matter political leaning. (see more from @lennan77)
It needs to stop. Stop blaming the poor. Stop assuming that history & context do not matter. Stop unfounded explanations such as “culture.” Stop ignoring the developmental needs of children & the nurturing of families.

As poverty & social policy scholars, what can we do?

1/ *TIME SENSITIVE* - The ON gov't plans to pass a law THIS week that will have a devastating impacts on #Indigenous #Black #Racialized #Marginalized Ss & will introduce a 2-tiered education system to #OntEd - #bill197
2/ @Sflecce and @fordnation are moving to pass Bill 137 THIS WEDNESDAY - a COVID-19 recovery bill that "somehow" includes removing the requirement for Directors of Ed to be qualified teachers - the continuation of efforts to privatize ed & create a 2-tiered system in #OntEd .
3/ Despite hopes, there is no guarantee this will allow anti-racist, human-rights advocates to apply the positions AND there is no guarantee that CEOs of banks/corporations will not be hired. This is a not a risk we can take!

1/ This is a crucial time for #OntEd ted: 3 school boards will be hiring Directors of Education - @PeelSchools @tdsb & @DurhamDSB. With any shift in power, opportunities exist for a rise in justice-oriented practices and/or a rise in corrupt, back-door deals.
2/ School boards need to hire anti-racist leaders, *especially* as Directors of Ed.

Trustees - what criteria are you giving to search firms to choose your next Director? Are hiring committees racially diverse including trustees with critical, anti-racist mindsets & experiences?
3/Leadership of school boards MUST BE INTENTIONALLY #AntiOppressive #AntiRacist. It is the only way to close gaps.

So, what might this look like?

Here are some suggestions based on the research and preliminary findings from our current study on anti-racist leadership.

It always breaks my hear when I see things like these 😩😩😩....
Our ancestors were just like fat cows....
Loosing everything because they thought everything foreign was better....
Everything was lost... And the seed of corruption and distrust was planted...
They merged everyone together to make countries so they could have more control over us....

#Epstein #Wexner #Maxwell #Rothschild #CIA #Mossad #MI6 #IranContra #RobertFuller

Jeffrey Epstein DID NOT "inherit" Robert Maxwell's "spy business".

There r multiple "spies" working 4 same Psyop. Anyone claiming Epstein inherited Maxwell is either disinfo agent or misinformed.
This path ultimately REMOVES Leslie Wexner's role in an operation that began decades b4 Robert Maxwell was in the military.

Leslie Wexner was Max Fisher's "Protegy".

Max Fisher is an outgrowth of CHIQUITA Bananas (Eli Black, Leon Black) drug smuggling that began 100+ yrs ago
Chiquita’s history in Colombia is more than a century old. Its roots grow out of the United Fruit Company, notorious in Latin America as a U.S. Army backed opponent to agrarian reform and agricultural workers’ unions. Later known as United Brands in 1970, & then Chiquita in 1989.
