In early march, we published a study on how Russians feel about the #war in #Ukraine.

We repeated this survey in early April with 1508 interviews in collaboration with @mowebresearch.

The survey took place before the atrocities in #Bucha became public. Results in a 🧵👇(1/n)
To obtain genuine & honest answers, the survey was conducted online. Since the first survey, the #propaganda has intensified and #pressure on critical voices in #Russia has increased. Therefore, any changes to march results only serve as an indicator for mood changes. (2/n)
57% of Russsians support Russia's "military intervention" in Ukraine (+9% since March). Support is increasing, but is lower than in other recently published polls, possibly due to online methodology where less pressure is present compared to phone/face2face methodologies. (3/n)

The vast majority of CT is misunderstanding the #Canadian situation. The simple fact is that the #convoys have nothing to do with #freedom or peaceful #protests.

First off: the #EmergenciesAct is not martial law and is not above the law.…
The protesters are a fringe #rightwing #minority group, partly supported by the American #extreme right.…
#Sabotaging the delivery of food and medical #supplies, blocking the movement of #international goods and services, holding up ambulances and firetrucks, preventing people from getting to #work - these are #criminal activities and not peaceful protests.

1/ This incident have to do with the global context. The West...has thrown its entire #propaganda machine into agitation work and has given a lot of encouragement and assistance to the so-called democrats or opposition in China — people who are in fact are the scum [of 17]
2/ Some Western countries use things like #HumanRights or like saying the socialist system is irrational or #illegal, to criticize us, but what they're really after is our sovereignty...
3/ Two conditions are indispensable for our development goals: a #stable environment at home and a peaceful environment abroad...

1/n Dear @JimCarrey, as life gave you a voice that matters we beg you to use it for good once again.

Please #StepUpForFreedom

'We' are being discriminated, due to our choice of not getting vaccinated (yet) against Covid &/or our choice of saying no to injecting our children.👇
2/n Hear us out:

#EmotionalSituation: we suffer. Division is upon us. Many lost their jobs. Families and friends are being torn apart. Many Europeans, Canadians, Americans, Australians and other citizens of the world share this pain. #Wearemillions. 👇
3/n #FreedomOfSpeech: our voice is being shut and undermined in mass media. Pretexting public health good intentions, political leaders of our nations end up dismissing, if not censoring (on social media), solid arguments for our choice, even if bcked up by eminent scientists.👇

This is why being a visible #minority is so hard. I shall only state my own experience. Comments by REAL people.🧵

1. Job interview - “How many years of postdoc have you done? Oh, you are an infant postdoc”

2. “You are here because of EDI…haha..JK”
3. “I am surprised. This opportunity should have been given to senior PIs”

4. “What do you think? Can you do this independently? Things are different now”

And there are more. I needed to share these. These signs of microaggression do not help.
I am so lucky to have colleagues and mentors who constantly support me and hear me out, but comments like these do keep coming back. As I grow and mature as a researcher, I shall constantly remind myself to be humble and inclusive. #EquityIsOpportunity

1/6: The current German Center-Left/Center-Right so-called "#GrandCoalition" #GroKo is now without a #majority in the polls. This increases the likelihood that #Merkel's departure in fall 2021 will not only usher in a change of government and #chancellor.…
2/6: The #Bundestag elections in September 2021 will seemingly also herald a new era in #Germanfederalpolitics - in the form of an entirely novel #governmental #coalition. Image

Contributed to @Guardian Podcast 'Today In Focus': The murder of schoolteacher Samuel #Paty who had shown his class #cartoons of the prophet #Muhammad has rekindled a debate in #France over #secularism & the state’s role in regulating #FreeSpeech. (21'-29')
I emphasise that we can discuss the general problem of hateful #cartoons about the Prophet #Muhammad & his Muslim followers that spread collective guilt & humiliate often underprivileged #minority communities beyond acts of barbaric #terrorism. #Racism #Islamophobia #CharlieHebdo
I think that @EmmanuelMacron acted in a manner that was rash & unstatesmanlike following the vile murder of Samuel #Paty. He has effectively incorporated #cartoons mocking #Islam into its domestic policies. He defended them as part of French culture & #France’s global image.

We need to talk about just how corrupt we've allowed #democracy in #America to become, to the point it isn't democracy in many respects. And we need to stop #partisan squabbling and get to fixing it before we end up a one-party state, like #China. Thread👇
In 2019, writing the decision for Common Cause v. Rucho, Chief Justice Roberts closed off the federal courts as an avenue for addressing partisan #gerrymandering, instead telling citizens to propose state constitutional amendments.
In many states, with statehouses #gerrymandered beyond reach of the people, or otherwise beholden to special interests, these citizen-amendments are the only avenue left for addressing #democracy reform and other policy concerns.

@BernieSanders Reality: the “#rich” lost a lot of #wealth and #profit generating capabilities, hence many #workers were #fired. However, some #minority among the rich was better able to adjust and improvise, which enables them to lower #unemployment by expanding their #investments.....
@BernieSanders .....society as a whole was damaged by the pandemic, it is not a zero-sum game as uncle @BernieSanders assumes, and the rich boogeyman does not want nor does he have the time to go out targeting your pockets.
@BernieSanders Furthermore, studies are clear that “protecting” workers is not good for productivity (since productivity enhancing technology puts people out of work), and thus the wages of the workers. Wages are further diminished by the temporary and artificial “stability” provided.

#BritishEmpire is trending on twitter: and so is #BlackLivesMatter. We want to take this moment to raise awareness of the the nature Wales shares with the British Empire 1/
Both colonised and subject to colonisation, Wales has a radical potential for radical solidarity and decolonisation. We need decolonisation, desperately, and anti-colonisation, as colonialism in #Wales is not over, nor is colonialism undertaken by the #BritishEmpire 2/
Grassroots local change with the support of others can harness real tangible long-term change beyond tick-boxes, key performance indicators and unionist political parties (and non-unionist political parties who are complicit in institutional racism and anti-Blackness) 3/

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?

#DidYouKnow that #Wales🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 is 6% #Black, #Asian and #Minority #Ethnic? In 2011, this was 4%, and has grown by 2% over the past 9 years.
Over 50% of #Wales lives in or around Cardiff, Newport or Swansea...

#Cardiff is 20.6% #BAME
#Swansea is 10.8% #BAME
#Newport is 13.1% #BAME Image
We are a Welsh language speaking team of #PeopleofColour who have seen how conversations on race, ethnicity, and diversity are minimised because #Wales is "Only 4% #Black, #Asian and #Minority #Ethnic".

#Secularists: Should India/Hindu Sanatani/Christian western countries return the SAME #love, #equality, #humanrights, #supremacists VALUES of that Muslims?

A snippet of a discussion on halting Hindu temple building in Islamabad, Pakistan. #hypocrisy

Hindus will NEVER stoop down ImageImageImage
They broke the construction wall & are threatening. This is #Islamic #mentality.

Next time, when you see a Muslim crying for #humanrights, #equality, playing #minority or #victim card, cry #Islamophobia, #oppression...I hope you WILL have the guts to QUESTION the INTENT & GOAL.
OH, BY YHE WAY: it's a Facebook group called 'India Pakistan Friendship club', opened by a Muslim, Kashif Khundmiri, from Hyderabad, 8.5K members....moderated by folks FROM MIDDLE-EAST.

#UnabatedMinorityAppeasement- A Thread
NDA govt was elected to Power in 2014, and again in 2019 with the hope that Muslim Appeasement being practiced by various political parties since independence would stop after Shri @narendramodi becomes Prime Minister of India.
But regretfully, I am forced to write a thread to make it clear that instead of curbing #MinorityAppeasement, Modi competing with other political parties to appease #Muslims.
Here's my thread....2/n
Recently Minority Affairs Minister Shri Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi announced provision of Scholarships to 5 crore Minority students in next 5 yrs by #ModiGovt, it was coupled with a promise to modernize the Madarassas.
This raises a few Critical Qs : ...3/n

#Lockdown_Chinavirus. Looks like we are nearing the flat side of the curve of the Corona Pandemic, except Maharashtra and little pockets. While I concede the lockdown helped , I've also understood that what was normal pre Corona will be either sub normal or abnormal post Corona
2. Now , I see a lot of people hailing the move by Karnataka, the average homosapien is not happy about it. They feel the opening of public life is a dangerous move and marks China and Italy as examples. They seem to know. Let all of us remember one #FACT that life after this
3. Is not going to be normal atleast for a year or more, by which time we will get used to the #NewNormal and keep moving. I was very depressed yesterday at the extension - I still am as an individual ,whose routine life has been disoriented on several aspects, but the larger

SBA has provided a #PPP loan slide deck summarizing the distribution of loans by size, location, and industry. According to the deck, approx. 75% of borrowers received $150K or less while approx. 70% of appropriated funds went to loans of $350K and over.…
@Phil_Mattingly what’s your take?
@KamalaHarris How can we get numbers on the distribution to #minority- and #women-owned businesses? The #PPP loan app doesn’t require a description of race, gender, etc. Maybe someone can cross-ref the SBA data with IRS or other fed data?

@HouseSmallBiz @SmallBizCmte We need to ensure all small businesses have access to #PPP loans with new funding. Option 1: Set aside funding for particular NAICS codes — the program already uses NAICS codes to determine affiliation.
Option 2: Similar to contracting goals for agencies, set “lending goals” for banks — setting aside much needed funds for #minority-owned and #women-owned #smallbiz. This also gets these businesses prepped to subcontract on a larger #infrastructure bill.
Option 3: Ramp up support/guidance for #local federal credit unions, particularly those in #rural communities, as well as #fintech companies. #SBDCs could provide locality-specific help on this.

I've talked before about Russian #disinformation, and how the goal is to exploit existing divisive issues to weaken the enemy. 1 #InformationWarfare #WednesdayWisdom #CambridgeAnalytica #Russie #Putin #deza
Bernie v. Hillary, Benghazi & the "email scandal" were perfect targets. There was already tension & division on those topics, so they were easy to exploit. 2
Russia also targeted #peopleofcolor (specifically black voters) to sow distrust of Hillary & the political process, which helped Trump's campaign. 3…

The sociological concept of the “other” is important to this discussion. If you haven’t heard of it before, here is a brief overview from…. 2 #identity #race #sociology #Science
People in power define social identities as they have the means to control the narrative – news coverage, platforms to broadcast their platforms, & the power to influence law enforcement and legislation. Social identity affects how people perceive themselves and others. 3
