1: Racism at @Apple store in #Pittsburgh (Shady Side) Manager Jen called the police on me, a Black woman, after I requested to see the written policy for why she was denying me service. I was there to get my phone fixed. Police threatened to arrest me. More details in this thread
2: I went to the Shady Side store to get my phone fixed. Upon attempting to enter, I was stopped by an older white man who told me I needed to change my mask. Yes, I had a mask on. At first, I was going to do it b/c I comply with COVID-19 protocols. Something didn't feel right.
3: I look in the store and there are white people in the store in all kinds of masks - not the paper disposable. He tells me it is Apple policy. I am like no, that doesn't even make sense. Of course, I make note of the racial difference between me and the folks in the store.

I am so grateful to ⁦@DeeshaPhilyaw⁩ for spreading the real word about #Pittsburgh. The sad truth is we have lived with the gaslighting “Most Livable” myth for years.

Let America know Pgh Is Not a Livable City for Black Women - Bloomberg…
“...the mayor has failed to hold anyone explicitly accountable for unchecked institutional racism and the historical and systematic decimation of Black communities here.”
“He has failed to own his role in it. As James Baldwin once said: ‘I can't believe what you say, because I see what you do.’”

Happening NOW— White House, Secret Service officials prep for President Biden’s visit to Carpenters #Pittsburgh Training Center.

Within next 30 min-hour, Biden set to arrive & unveil his major infrastructure/jobs plan.

Limited access: ~2 dozen chairs spaced far apart; no public
Biden’s “American Jobs Plan” calls for pumping $ not only into traditional infrastructure projects — such as repairing dilapidated roads & bridges — but also expanding access to broadband internet, as the president tweeted about just as Air Force One touched down in #Pittsburgh.
The 4 areas covered in Biden’s infrastructure plan:

1). Roads, bridges, rail, transportation.

2). Broadband, water, power, housing & buildings.

3). Home & community-based care for seniors and people with disabilities.

3). Manufacturing.… | @TribLIVE

An essay I wrote was published in @PublicSourcePA today: "A moral reckoning is upon us. We must reorient the lens for which we gaze at #Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh is not the nation’s most livable city. It is America’s apartheid city."…
Pittsburgh is America's apartheid city, not the nation's most livable city.
(2) It is a jarring comparison at first blush. The legacy of South Africa’s apartheid had forcibly, by law, separated people by racial classifications and into geographically isolated districts...

„Es gibt demobilisierende Effekte, wenn die Betroffenen nach vorne gestellt werden und nicht die Täter.“ Im #HalleProzess wurde heute @Matthias_Quent gehört, er nahm dabei eine dringend notwendige Einordnungen zum Thema #RechterTerror vor. Details im Thread👇
Quent ging zunächst auf die internationale Geschichte von #RechterTerror ein, bei dem es die Idee gebe, es gebe einen inneren Feind, der äußere Feinde „ins Land“ holen wolle, um „das Volk“ oder „die weiße Rasse“ zu zerstören. In diesem Zusammenhang sei die Tat von #Halle zu sehen
Der Sachverständige wies auf die Konstruktion einer positiven Bezugsgruppe, die mobilisiert werden solle, und einer negativen Bezugsgruppe, die eingeschüchtert werden solle, hin. Der Attentäter von #Halle beziehe sich also auf Ideologiefragmente mit langer Geschichte.

16.01/ There are some really promising signs. It's a good feeling that increasing the number of voters - without even knowing how they voted - is good for the Democrats. It's good for democracy and the "Democrat" party. Funny that
16.02/ A reminder that huge crowds - and 40% of the vote - is also what Hoover inspired in 1932.
16.03/ Florida is a true toss-up because it's Florida and it's designed to be a god-awful mess. But I have a good feeling about Texas (and Georgia). A gooooooooooooood feeling about Texas

(1/4) #Catholics for Biden event in #Pittsburgh? Seriously?

@JoeBiden chose a running mate who is overtly & stringently anti-Catholic, imposing religious tests on public office when asking if a judge appointee was a member of #KnightsofColumbus. #prolife…
(2/4) And then there’s @JoeBiden’s total support for #abortion, the greatest human rights issue of our time.

And it’s actually not just one issue-it’s 60 million issues.

60 million lives have been lost since #Roe.

60 million.
(3/4) Every year, thousands of #lateterm babies who feel pain are aborted.

Thousands feel pain. Science says so. @JoeBiden supports late term #abortions & he wants taxpayers to pay for it.

#Catholics for Biden are comfortable w/ thousands of late term, pain-filled abortions.

I am speechless.

I was recently made aware that the Pittsburgh City Council passed a proclamation declaring Wednesday, July 1st, 2020 “Rosemary Ketchum Day”...
I have admired the City of Pittsburgh for as long as I remember.

The amazing public art, the incomparable cuisine, and the diversity of the people who live there are among the things that I admire most...
Now, as an elected official myself, with the responsibility of helping govern my own city, I reflect on the amazing and progressive strides Pittsburgh has made.

#Detroit City officials cleaned up the #VoterRolls after the @PILFoundation, a government watchdog, filed suit against them in December. Nearly 2,500 deceased individuals and 4,800 #DuplicateRegistrations were removed from the voter rolls. @JoeSchoffstall
Outside liberal groups, such as the New York-based @BrennanCenter and @LWVSSMC #Michigan, [intervened] on behalf of the #ElectionOfficials but ultimately did not play much of a role. @JoeSchoffstall
The voter registration irregularities were not the only time #Detroit has faced election-related controversy. Last year, clerk Sherikia L. Hawkins was charged with felony counts for altering absentee ballots during the 2018 elections.@JoeSchoffstall

Mimmo è alla stazione di #Pittsburgh, in attesa di un treno che lo porti nella prossima città dove si esibirà. E’ successo tutto così in fretta. Qualcuno ha portato un 45 giri in una radio di #Detroit e il dj lo ha passato, senza ascoltarlo.

Il disco ha cominciato a vendere. In Usa. Una canzone in italiano. Incredibile. Certo, aveva vinto il Festival di #Sanremo, in Italia era diventata un caso. Però… Image

Rompeva tutti gli schemi della tradizione melodica italica, ma la cantavano tutti.
Tra un teatro e l’altro, un trionfo e un bis acclamato da un pubblico non solo oriundo, c’è tempo anche per accettare l’invito all’Ed Sullivan Show. Image

Heute tagte im #ltlsa der Untersuchungsausschuss zum Anschlag von #Halle. Was vorher bereits klar war, bestätigt sich: die Gefährdungslage für die jüdischen Gemeinden wurde von allen irgendwie damit befassten Sicherheitsbehörden falsch eingeschätzt, #rechterTerror unterschätzt.
Angesichts z.B. der Tatsache, dass weder die Anschläge #Christchurch, noch #Pittsburgh bundesweit zum Anlass genommen wurden, eine grundsätzliche Neubewertung der Sicherheitssituation für Jüdinnen und Juden im Deutschland vorzunehmen, leiten dich daraus logische Folgefehler ab.
Aufzuarbeiten sein wird der Polizeieinsatz am 9. Oktober in Halle und zu prüfen, ob dabei vermeidbare Fehler passierten und warum er lief wie er lief. Wichtig wäre zu analysieren, was an welcher Stelle falsch läuft in Bezug auf rechten Terror und daraus resultierende Bedrohungen

I was assaulted by a White male photographer AFTER our very peaceful #PittsburghProtest. I was on FB Live. He ran away but witnesses saw him interviewed on @WPXI (Ch 11), saying he was attacked by Black people. Please help me find him. #BlacksLivesMatter #Pittsburgh
The actual #PittsburghProtest itself went very well, it was a fully, Black led and multiracial coalition of folks who came out in solidarity to seek #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd in #Minnesota and reassert that ALL #BlackLivesMatter, everywhere, even in #Pittsburgh, #Pennsylvania. ✊🏾
We arrived on Centre Avenue, almost headed to Freedom Corner (an historic site of #PittsburghProtest), but organizers received news that someone hit a patrol car, violence was eminent, so they ended the march right there. Half the marchers were still on Washington Blvd. #BLM

#GeorgeFloyd protesters have halted a long line of cars along the Interstate 579 over the Allegheny River in #Pittsburgh.

A car is on fire outside PPG Paints Arena.

Stay tuned to @TribLIVE for developing coverage. Also: @dillonswriting & @nsmallwoodphoto
UPDATE: Traffic cleared by police on I-579 — but an ambulance just reached the off-ramp to treat an injured man near the intersection of Route 28/Chesnut Street.

Several #protesters told me that a car driver got inpatient and rammed into the protester.

Tristen Nesmith, 23, of Beaver Falls said he saw a car strike one of the fellow #protesters along the I-579/Veterans Bridge over the Allegheny River.

The driver got frustrated, “started reviving up his engine and just hit my man for no reason. He wasn’t doing anything wrong.”

1/ Q: What’s brought you hope this week?
A: Food trucks!

@PittsburghMag’s recent article showcases food truck owners working hard to re-open *safely.* It’s a joy to see the amazing work ethic and bright minds of these small business owners innovating evidence-based ways forward!
2/ What’s in their secret sauce? (Please pardon the pun).

Three key themes: metrics (following gating criteria), risk-prevention methods, and building trust. More on each below
(1) METRICS: The food truck owners are paying close attention to the “gating criteria” set forth by their local #publichealth authorities, following all associated guidance and respecting phased implementation approaches.

We need some #GoodNews. Yes, this is a study in mice but this is so far the first peer-reviewed #coronavirus #vaccine study with promising results in @EBioMedicine published by @TheLancet from @PittTweet @UPMCnews @PittHealthSci vaccinologists
When tested in mice, the #vaccine, delivered through a fingertip-sized patch, produces #antibodies specific to #SARSCoV2 #virus. Researchers were able to act quickly because they already laid the groundwork during earlier #coronavirus #epidemics.
Compared to the experimental #mRNA #vaccine that entered clinical trials, this one - called #PittCoVacc, short for #Pittsburgh #Coronavirus Vaccine - follows a more established approach, using lab-made pieces of viral protein to build immunity (same way current #flu shots work)
