die peinliche aktion des 🇩🇪 teams, geplant als signal während den vielen stunden ihrer spiele durch eine armbinde #OneLove, geendet als sekunden fürs pressefoto, wurden mit anderen protesten im sport verglichen.
doch wird dabei etwas vergessen.

So ummm,
quick question for @POTUS, I know election season and all but ANYWAY:
Why is @tomcoderre getting to decide political appointees,

even get a call or reply about my application? 🤔 why did I NOT EVEN GET A RESPONSE?…
Could it mayyyyyybe be…..

Un lunghissimo thread che ho scritto invece di fare la lavatrice e pulire sotto al divano
E’ interessante quanto è mediaticamente accaduto fra il 30 aprile ed il 1° maggio sui principali schermi del nostro Paese.
Sto ovviamente parlando del monologo di #pioeamedeo e dell’intervento di #Fedez al concerto del #PrimoMaggio
Quella che è andata in scena infatti è probabilmente una delle faglie che attraverserà la società e la politica italiana del futuro. In 24 ore di tv si sono scontrati due Paesi opposti per consapevolezze e prima ancora per anagrafe

Beware #SiliconValley. #Kaepernick got the NFL all wokey but it wasn’t enough. He wants to dictate how they recruit and hire talent, not by ability but by wokeness.…
After the NFL is conquered and the folks who say they just want “diversity” have enough power, they are coming for you #SiliconValley. Your boardrooms, your overly white and Asian engineers. Slogans won’t cut it when they can have your position.
Of course, #SiliconValley, like the NFL, hires the best for very competitive jobs. So as football becomes more about lockstep groupthink and less about, uh, football, tech will become more about paying people to preen at a keyboard and not, uh, great products. Be warned.

When #ColinKaepernick first took a knee, I was disturbed, disturbed enough to re-read things I hadn't read for awhile, disturbed enough to watch speeches I hadn't seen in awhile, disturbed enough to finally concede that my first disturbed look was that of a white football fan.
When seeing #Trump's tweet last night threatening to use U-S armed forces to shoot #AfAmericans anywhere and everywhere in the U-S, I was disturbed enough to remember how I first felt about #Kaepernick and his knee and apologize to him in my thoughts for my initial reaction.
But today it's time for thoughts to be turned into words. Many people, in my opinion,in various walks of life, owe him an apology. They can make their choices. I've made mine. Dear Mr #Kaepernick You were right, and I was wrong. Your knee spoke from a position of strength.

La vidéo du meurtre d'un homme Noir par un officier de Police Blanc scandalise

Le policier écrase son cou pendant de longues minutes alors qu'il
gémit "Je ne peux pas respirer"

#BlackLivesMatter #PoliceBrutality #MoiAussiJAiPeurDeLaPolice
Minneapolis Police
Le FBI et le Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension enquêtent sur l'incident.

Darnella Frazier qui a tourné la vidéo :
"Une dame (pompier) leur a demandé de vérifier son pouls et ils l'ont complètement ignorée et ont été très désagréables avec elle"…
"Finalement, il a cessé de parler et est devenu silencieux. A ce moment, il avait l'air mort. Il semblait qu'il manquait d'énergie et de temps et était en train de mourir lentement. J'ai déjà vu la police être agressive mais jamais tuer quelqu'un devant moi»

Lets all admit superbowl ads are actually trash, ok?
Why are these medieval people in this beer ad talking about who they would have to eat when they have a giant barrel of corn syrup that could probably sustain them for like a decade?

They're making a Fast and Furious movie without Vin Diesel?? this is 100% B.S.

(THREAD) Why I - (a flag-waver) - support #Kaepernick & #TakeAKnee.
This is the flag that draped my father’s coffin. He was a WWII vet. 1/
He later became the head ranger of a state park & as such, we lived on the park.
One “chore” assigned to me from 2nd grade↑ was to raise 2/
the US & Ga state flag every morning before getting on the school bus & take them down every evening. Dad taught me proper flag etiquette 3/
