1/ I loved yesterday’s panel talk on #Sanism with @viscidula @liminal67 @climateshlock et al. We finished by discussing internalised Sanism & how this impacts each of us as individuals & as activists. Nothing hurts like fellow activists tearing you down or bullying you. Part of >
2/ the discussion included #AntiBlack & #Intersectional #Sanism. Why don’t we see people of colour in mainstream MH activism? Because if you don’t feel welcome & you have enough on your plate, why come back to services where you were treated badly? What about if your >
3/ experience is different to other ppl? If the generic pale skinned ‘articulate’ activists savage each other when their positions & perspectives are different, what the hell happens to the most marginalised groups? You don’t see them for dust. They’re marginalised, not stupid >

SCOOP: President Joe Biden’s nominee to fill a vacancy on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals is a longtime diversity trainer who has argued for curtailing the First Amendment and conducted training sessions that say "microaggressions" can "kill you." 🧵…
Now an associate justice on the Connecticut State Supreme Court, Maria Araujo Kahn suggested in a 2020 opinion that courts should criminalize speech that offends "oppressed groups."
Since 2013, she has also delivered at least a dozen diversity trainings and presentations to lawyers across the country, with titles like "Cultural Competence, Implicit Association and Racial Anxiety," according to her Senate Judiciary Questionnaire.

A thread for your #Education edification. A tale of #SchoolShootings #MTSS #RestorativeJustice #CRT #DEI (better than CRT because it includes gender ideology! Reee!).

It will appear that school shootings have more in common than a gun, a lunatic, and a therapist.
MTSS stands for Multi Tiered System of Supports, and goes hand-in-hand with DEI, restorative justice, gender ideology, and the rest of the indoctrination tools that are destroying USA schools.
more here:…
The list.
Used this list, so graciously provided by the angsty writers at EdWeek, to go through a list of "school shootings" in 2022
As you can see, the list was full of shootings that took place on school property, but not during school hours/students… Image

Quick 🧵: Now that the anecdotes and the sciences have aligned to confirm that #WhiteSupremacy is ✨in fact✨ an #embodied experience,

I’ve been revisiting my own hesitancies around blindly trusting all-White, all-cisgendered male leadership teams of humanitarian organizations.
2/5 I’m reminded that it takes muscle memory— not mere thinking— to see issues of inequity when they pop up in systems.

When you’ve lived in a body that’s so rarely minoritized/ marginalized (i.e., White and cisgendered male), it’s easy and common for you to overlook inequity.
3/5 This is uncomfortable to hear, but it’s true.

We’re learning more and more that #WhiteSupremacy is not— at its core— a matter of ideas.

It’s a matter of the patterned responses to the “Other” that are embodied in folks’ core beliefs, emotions and knee-jerk social reactions.

Appreciate this Mr. @malki . Did not expect to get a response from the original author of the comic work. You're correct in assuming that this was a 'good-faith effort' to describe the #sealioning expression in retrospect from an objective & historical point of view. 🧵1/10
Translators like me are in nature 'investigative' and we tend to explore the intent of the author and its context to understand the real meaning behind a certain expression or a term. To me #Sealioning was such new term. So as you said, I tried to do a 'deep-dive' into it. 2/10
In Japan, the context and historical background of #Sealioning is not fully understand, while there are many versions of translations of your original work. @annaPHd9pj 's was one of them I happened to come across first, and I personally thought it was well-translated. 3/10

London's mayor & the deluded, eminent British journalist, #OrwellPrize winner & militant #AntiRacist, #DavidAaronovitch are both committed to the #GreatReplacement of Native Britons with migrants & asylum seekers of colour, of which there is an endless supply.
That #SadiqKhan wants the #GreatReplacement to proceed as quickly as possible, I can understand, but that @DAaronovitch - himself a Native Briton - should want this too is puzzling, until you realise that he is driven by an ideology, just as his communist parents were.
What is this ideology?

It is a misconceived, #NeverAgain, response of the evils of Nazism, which goes to oppose & equally insane extremes. It goes under the name(s) of post-racial multiculturalism, DIVERSITY, Inclusion & AntiRacism, & the purpose it serves is this: Image

💭The issue is that Racism exists on all levels. And because its so embedded in our societies, it's hard to recognize and even harder to change. Image

“Model minorities” chase impossible standards? Then let’s try to match of achievement level set by Black women

Nice racism - how progressive White people perpetuate racial harm.

This should be good.
"“nice” progressive white people frequently perpetrate the most racial harm in cross-racial spaces. They objectify Black people and people of color, enact daily racist microaggressions, & center their own feelings of shame when called out – that is, they make it all about them."…
Wow, diAngelo isn't mincing words at all.

Dear Fellow White People,

I am a gay woman of Jewish ethnicity living in #Texas and have faced discrimination in my life. However, my experiences are through the lens of a white woman, someone who doesn’t face the daily #SystemicRacism embedded in our society and institutions.
Let’s be clear. The USA was built on the backs of slaves, human beings who were considered property for no other reason than the color of their skin, and the institutions within this country were both developed and implemented by, and for, white people.
By virtue of this fact, white people have the inherent privilege of living in a world that was created for their benefit.

"Israeli-Palestinian conflict"
"people are dying"

Is this what you think the #antiracist, #SocialJustice #EdTwitter community asked for?

You should do better, because you know better.
Name the injustices. Speak the truth. Do the work.
Educators looking for resources here's a starting point.

Word “racism” silenced, actively, by #MedEd #MedTwitter #healthcare#professionalism” & “communication” labels

Saying “racism” offends or “hurts feelings” > actual #BLM deaths

If #professionalism itself is racist -makes sense that word suppressed
What @ayshakhoury experienced pushes out & silences many

If the editors of @JAMA_current resist hearing word “structural racism” then they certainly are not publishing papers using that word

Hello 👋 new followers. Feel free to introduce yourself.

Me: A top strength of mine is “input” Others in pics.

I tweet A LOT. I tweet long threads with links to articles, with highlighted screenshots, links to others’ tweets. I hold onto info & reference past yet “futuristic”
You have to know the past to understand patterns and see possibilities as well as navigate past barriers for the future.

If you like control or boundaries, run now as I promise you I will be 🤯 for you.

A school contacted me asking me to provide trauma informed trainings to their educators. I reviewed the content I planned to discuss, much of which also addresses racism and disparities in education. They indicated they were "not interested in racism stuff." #traumainforned 1/
My answer: then you are not looking to become more trauma informed. You CANNOT address trauma in schools without addressing the trauma caused by systemic, structural, and individual racism. Do not ask me to teach you something you aren't ready to learn. Absolutely not 2/
As long as Black & Latino students are expelled at 3x the rate of white students for the same behaviors, I will address racism in education. As long as Black & Latino students are not recognized for their excellence, I will address racism. Needless to say, I wasn't hired 🤷🏾‍♀️ 3/

#BritishValues pose an existential threat to the survival of Western civilisation, which Britain itself has contributed so much to.

This seems contradictory, but is not.

The forces which give rise to a civilisation ultimately also destroy it.
This is what British values are now doing: destroying the civilisation they gave rise to.

It happened to ancient Greece, to ancient Rome & to every other civilisation that has arisen, flourished & fallen.
It is no coincidence that most of the world's richest people are White, while at the same time, their own race is declining & will soon "achieve" minority status in countries where it was, until very recently, the overwhelming & dominant majority, if not also indigenous.

Educators of color are not exempt from being culturally responsive to our Black students. Anti-blackness and adultification of black children in education happens among educators of color and can cause irreparable damage. #antiracistsc
Specifically, Black boys in an elementary school in a virtual setting should be excited about school rather than feeling anxiety about being scrutinized for every mistake or getting accused for things they did not do and not receiving due process. #antiracistsc
Many black boys are assumed guilty before innocent in the education system. Instead of asking “what caused this situation?”, it is assumed that they are being disrespectful or defiant and automatically. #antiracist

The initiators of this #AntiRacist ideology were primarily traumatised Jews with their resolution of #NeverAgain.

It's a classic example of good intentions paving the way to hell, & all the more efficiently, because Jews lean Right as well as Left, so its not just a L/R thing.
To be clear: I'm not blaming Jews for this anti-racist ideology, which was an understandable response to the trauma they had suffered at the hands of the Nazis & their criminally insane racial ideology. But it IS misconceived & will have the opposite effect to that intended.

Diversity & anti-racist policies need to implemented in bidding & contractors
