So @BarackObama @TomPerez & @DNC are thumbing the scale for @JoeBiden to undermine @BernieSanders. Ok. Let’s have that fight. @ninaturner @VanJones68 nbcnews.com/news/nbcblk/jo…
While @JoeBiden was collaborating with klan members & segregationists, @BernieSanders was fighting for #Equality thenation.com/article/archiv…
@BernieSanders was advocating for #LGBTQ when it was politically unpopular to do so. @JoeBiden voted for #DOMA. Bernie did not. feelthebern.org/bernie-sanders…

Remember when #Republicans #seceded from the #Union to defend the @PeculiarInstitution of #Slavery?

Neither do I.
Remember when #Republicans created the #KKK as an armed force of masked #terrorists to #murder newly #freedslaves and government officials that protected them?

Neither do I.
Remember when #Republicans enacted #apartheid in America through so-called #JimCrow laws?

Neither do I.

*Mental health thread*

At least 1 in 4 of us are suffering with mental health illnesses.

We are all human and we do not know what trouble the human beside us is facing.

🙏 CHOOSE to listen, support, be kind & fair.

Your hello and smile may be what gives someone strength.
The thing about mental health is that it can seriously affect how we see things, how we perceive ourselves and others around us.

Negative thoughts of failure or self-criticism or loss of confidence being wrongly reinforced by how others treat us can affect how we feel.
Eventually it can all become overwhelming.

One can feel that they can no longer cope.

Choose not to be the person who takes away someone’s sense of security, self belief, sense of achievement or confidence.

In 2007, I started writing letters to Negro League players that were still living. I told them how much I learned from their stories and how much I would cherish their autograph. It was a rewarding experience, I believe for both me and the player. 1/? @nlbmprez @JPosnanski
One of my favorites that I got back was from Emilio Navarro. Coincidentally, he received my letter on his 101st birthday. See what he wrote in the photo. 2/?
Another was from Major League HOF’er, Monte Irvin. He sent me his phone number to find out where I got the card he signed. My wife made them for me to send. 3/?

My ex gf is a supporter of trans rights mainly because she knows me more than anything although she's quite liberally minded. Well before I've told her bits and pieces and tonight I told her everything I've seen about the trans movement. Non of it is lies as there is hard........
Evidence from the mouths of those who have made threats or been violent towards woman. Laughs and mocks people's illnesses and their passing. Readily turn on people even within their own community who is ascribed as having 'wrongthink'. Wishes to remove the use of transsexual....
To remove the separation between untransitioning TW and transitioning. Appropriate the words women by instead replacing with Cis and also the word Lesbian as well. Women can have penises these day and lesbians are transphobic for not being into ladydick. Finally they have........

In Nov 2019, a narrow 3:2 majority of the #SupremeCourt decided to keep the #Sabarimala review petitions pending.

It held that overarching questions pertaining to #ReligiousFreedom & #GenderEquality must first be decided by a larger 9-judge Bench.

ATL🇺🇸@VDHanson talks the 'hubris' of Democrats, and their accusing Trump of "thought crimes."
@VDHanson "They want to streamline the Constitution continually in an effort to make a country of radical equality."

ATL🇺🇸@VDHanson explains the 'Progressive Project' as an effort to move away from #Liberty towards #Equality.

#SexWorkers remind us sex work is about work. Like all workers they #deserve #rights and #protection against violence at workplace, stigma and discrimination in society.

Current criminalisation (in majority of African countries) of sex work means #sexworkers are on the front-line of #GBV in that the perpetrator knows they are unlikely to report it, and that they are vulnerable and unprotected.

#EndGBV #accesstoredress #16days #dignityatwork
In the context of #MeToo: sex workers face judgement, stigma, blatant systematic discrimination. In media, they’re punished 4 their nonconforming sexuality by being criminalized/slut-shamed.

A thread on some quotes from @gautambhatia88’s “The transformative constitution “In equality jurisprudence, the approach of focusing on the disproportionately exclusionary impact if politics rather than their formal character or motive is known as disparate impact”
“It is based on the premise that inequality and discrimination result not (only) from individual hostile acts, but from structures and institutions.” @gautambhatia88 Only in brackets important & added by me.
An test for entry may be “neutral” but yet exclude by aligning with exclusionary institutions; if an physical entrance test for firefighter includes activities not necessary for fulfilling duties and unintentionally poses #gender-barriers, deserves to be struck down. #NoteToSelf

#S386 #EqualityCantWait #greencardequality

Mental onanism by #S386 opponents about how magic future CIR/ merit-based legislation as "right" solution to solve backlog

US Constitution Art 1 Sec 9 Clause 3- ex Post Facto prohibits retroactive effects of law.
In other words, new systems can only affect future I-140 applicants.

Only #Equality #S386 can solve backlog,

No new law can mitigate promissory estoppel claims of existing I-140 backlog. All claims to the contrary are spurious.

Also, don't buy life vests made of lead.
People not in line i.e. those who do not yet have an I-140 have no locus standi i.e. they do not have a legal standing recognized by law. Therefore their opinion does NOT count.

I've always been a firm believer in school uniform.
A fair, accessible and affordable uniform does have benefits, reducing bullying of those who can't afford branded clothing, introduces discipline in a fair way as everyone appears equal.
But current uniform policy has gone far beyond being uniform.
It is no longer affordable and accessible.

It is now teachers and schools who bully and abuse the pupils, who make lasting judgements based on appearance.
There is no such thing as a uniform size where children are concerned but the child is punished for their size, shape not conforming to the manufacturers average.

Girls are taught by their educators to expect judgement and abuse because of what they wear and how they wear it.

Do you realize that later this year people who were born after 9/11 will put their lives on the line in a war that started before they were born? Tulsi pledges to put an end to regime change wars! She is a combat veteran herself and proud of her service since 9/11.She knows(2/10)

Was in pre-op for an emergent take back over the weekend. My chief arrived & in the middle of her asking me (the intern) to put in orders for the case, the male anesthesia resident asked if she was the pre-op nurse. She cordially explained she was the chief surgical resident 1/10
She was clearly the leader of our team yet had to defend her position as such. As a man, I often get benefit of the doubt of being “the Dr.” even when I was a short-coated medical student. As a new intern, people assume I’m in charge but I’ve only been a resident for 40 days 2/10
I have never had to defend my position on a team. This stands in stark contrast to the many women physicians who have to justify their role each & every day. I often wonder if I would have the same amount of patience as my female colleagues, & the answer is an easy no 3/10

At same period the UK Authorities, banks & state owned companies all converged with their plans to take our home, our car & our money, my mother's #DWP welfare benefit was also targeted on several occasions, the worst being what happened at #Adecco #Guardian #TheTimes #GMB
My mother was seeking #employment & arranged an appointment with #OfficeAngels who she was already registered with & had worked for, for years. However, the time & date of the appointment was at a similar time to that of her sign on with the #DWP. #Jobseekersallowance #Jobseekers

Welcome to #FallacyFridays, the day we explore logical fallacies in hopes of making better arguments & having sound logic. Today's logical fallacy is the straw man fallacy. This one is quite popular, so don’t hesitate to let your followers learn more about it by retweeting. 😁
In order to explain how the straw man fallacy works, let’s talk about this tweet I made last week.
As responses were pouring in, I found that most people understood the content of my tweet and folks answered the question to the best of their ability.

The strength distribution between males and females. As you can see, there is barely even an overlap, with the average males easily surpassing the best females. This is the whole reason we have sex segregated sports.

(via @asymmetricinfo @hbdchick)
However, difference of output doesn't necessarily mean that female athletes don't work just as hard as men.

If they want to have equal pay, people would have to start watching/supporting women's sports as much as men's. Otherwise it would be financially inefficient.
Broke: Force equal pay for female athletes by subsidizing their wages

Woke: Women's pay should be determined by their profitability as per supply and demand, just as men's sports is #equality
