Announcement from @fordnation sank my heart today. As an ER doctor, person of color and #Scarborough native, I feel defeated 😢. The measures are not going to get wave 3 under control. #BIPOC #ERdoc @SHNcares @torontolife @JustinTrudeau @SCMirror 1/
When I landed as an #immigrant in #Canada, my life started in #Scarborough. My parents (#heros) struggled to find jobs that matched their education. That didn't stop them from working hard / hustling even if it meant 2 jobs at times to keep bills paid and food on the table. 2/
My family lived in an apt building that had mostly racialized/middle-low income families (#affordability). Not much social distancing when large crowds wait for elevators (#EssentialWorkers) or use the shared laundry facilities. This pandemic brings back those vivid memories 3/

You know what I spent the last covid supp on? A tent, sleeping mat, a portable stove, cans of butane, 3 months supply of medication and a coat. This added to the last supp that paid for a years car rego & a tank of fuel I've been too scared to use since. #privilged
It is beyond depressing that in Australia 2021, I feel privileged to own a car and have somewhere to sleep when - not if 'that' day comes, while over 250K people had to go to over worked under funded services because of LNP incompetence and wilful cruelty…
" That" day - the day no matter what you do you're stuffed and end up on the street - has come to so many of my friends this yr, ppl who were just managing to get by before #auspol decided they were unworthy of life. With 110K already rough sleeping, these numbers terrify.

For the past three weeks, a group of Trump supporters and QAnon believers met online, swapped theories and eagerly awaited the conspiracy’s violent climax. I was listening in. This is what they sounded like.…

So ready for this amazing #HDLS14 panel on "Race, racism and racialization in sign language research" organized by @linasigns and @jaceyhill starring @_CooLDP @munimuninianna and Dominic Harrison (are you on Twitter Dominic?)
.@linasigns starts of with a powerful reminder and acknowledgment about the constant presence of violence and oppression against BIPOC people in this country and how BIPOC scholars are forced to exist in spaces which thrive on white supremacy and settler colonialism #HDLS14
UNM's @_CooLDP situates us within Intersectionality Frameworks such as #BlackFeministDisbility (Bailey& Mobley 2018) #BlackDeafFeminist (Chapple 2019) & outlines different branches of #CriticalRaceTheory showing each highlights different facets of intersectionality #HDLS14

Let's talk about the elephant in the room (pun intended).

Can we agree we're all anxious about this election? Great! Let's start there. But what exactly are we anxious about?

@Kbahri5 @JuliaFliss @drgamermom @ChristineBemis2 @gtoppo @DrLydiaYoung @DrKGRM @msjingold
Are we anxious about the final count? Yes

Are we anxious that this election will impact the lives of our children and their children after them? Yes

Excellent, let's keep going...

@HeatherJoy001 @ASMILEwithAnna @henneld_edu @awfrench1 @MikeHynes5 @MonicaHousen @STEAMcultivator
Are we at all anxious that 70 million people have just voiced their approval of the way our country has been run over the past 4 years? Still yes?

Great, stay with me...

@EpiEllie’s #COVID19 #ContactBudget, in thread form, undertaken with her blessing😅

NB: lettered items = topic, numbered = bullets in the original #giftorial; expansions on these are my words alone.

First, the #giftorial (large font version)

We've heard about #RiskReduction from @JuliaLMarcus along w/ #PreventionStrategies for SARS-CoV-2 from many public health experts.

Dr. Murray's #giftorial above brings this together in a way that makes it easy to individually apply. I'll use my situation to demonstrate.

A. What level of risk can I afford?
1. Age: adult, 28 - 40
2. Health status: at least 2 comorbidities, one of which is asthma (often exacerbated during allergy season); high stress job.
3. Caregiving responsibilities: minimal
4. Personal risk preference: very averse to all

Looking forward to delivering this one-day workshop/training to a national counselling service today! #counselling #therapy #training Image
When we say 'working with', what we are actually doing and being in, is a Relationship. So both my idenity and the identity of the other person are present and in relationship with one another #relationships #intersectionality #diversity Image
In #counselling it's important we understand, explore and reflect on our own and our client's intersectionality, and the relationship dynamic created between the two. Great discussion in our morning session addressing those systems of oppression and our #intersectionality. Image

You see my faith before my profession. You see my ethnicity before my qualifications. You see my gender before my clincial experience. You see my age before my accolades. To say therapy isn't social justice or political guess what, its not a choice. You can't eradicate my Truth.
If I am Seen, my Clients are Seen. If I can accept my Truth, I can accept my Client's Truth.
#socialjustice #counselling #therapy #power #privilege #oppression #political #inequality #intersectionality #identity #faith #ethnicity #gender Image
No Counsellor/Therapist is 'neutral' in the room. Our visible identity (ethnicity, gender, faith, age, ability/disability etc) can't be removed, dismissed, ignored, made invisible. Our identity is reacted/related/responded to (consciously/unconsciously). It's how we work with it.

If you really want to make a change in the world, do something hard like #nonviolent #resistance. Read up and learn #satyagraha or change. It takes #strength & #courage; physical force is forbidden even in the so-called most favorable circumstances.…
If your cause is #righteous, Gandhi believed, the movement would speak for itself.

My personal justification for it is #psychological/#neurological (#CNS/#HPA).

If you use #violence, well the one with the biggest #ego or the biggest ego-extension (guns, tanks, war) will win.
Removing tools of violence (words, arms) from the equation, you form a mirror.

It's not easy though. You'd have to refine/drop/manage/elevate past your own #ego.

People - depending on personal history & psychology - sometimes become enraged at what they see in the #mirror.

1. I once thought that my spiritual life was separate from and more significant than my civic life. As a pastor I operated in this way. I was always involved in the community, but it was secondary. I now know this was wrong. #WeThePeople
2. I know this was a luxury grounded in #privilege. Civic life makes the rights of the vulnerable possible. Civic life makes access to education and health care possible. Civic life is based on equality. And equality flows from free and fair elections.
3. The history of #racism in the United States is the history of voter suppression. The suppression of the vote through #USPSsabotage, the dismantling of the #PostalService, is the latest chapter in voter suppression. It violates our democracy. It cannot be justified.

Problem with political « scandals » is that we never really get to the bottom of them. I was suspended for 2 1/2yrs without pay because Deloitte questioned $141 of expenses. False allegations are horrible on a human being. #WEscandal #SNC #SenateScandal #cdnpoli
I followed rules to the letter as it was written in black and white and was forced to pay back over $50,000. My colleague, a single mother lost her job and because she was associated with me, she couldn’t find work and had to move to the Yukon.

#MiniThread: I remind all that this White House belongs to the People. The US Citizens. Those elected into offices who work within it's walls have a #Privilege to do so. They are calling these Protective Measures, or Security. They have turned our house into an eyesore. Cont.
And We The People are paying for every piece of fencing, & every concrete barricade; every rubber bullet, canister of CS, unidentified law enforcement agent, etc. Keeping the people from viewing OUR HOUSE. Simply because a squatter the majority highly disapproves of fears (cont)
disapproval. But wait, there's more (like a bad sales commercial)! Now a greatly needed #StimulusBill, saving families from eviction, starvation, foreclosure, etc, is being held hostage not only for a new FBI HQ next to a Trump hotel but for renovations to OUR HOUSE to the tune

When white Evangelical leaders discredit Christian support for #BLM with "Jesus came to save individuals from sin, not political change," this is #TheologyOfPrivilege. It's a dominant theology and long est. strategy for marginalizing critiques of the status quo's injustice 1/ Image
What is #TheologyOfPrivilege? If the status quo is comfortable for you; if you benefit from the current relations of exploitation in society, you have the #Privilege of feeling non-political. You can label calls for change as political and treat your theology as pure. 2/
There is a history of #TheologyOfPrivilege in Christianity. Think of Luther’s ultimate response to exploited, starving German (Christian) peasants and their theological critiques of the feudal status quo: slaughter them, they’re not real Christians! 3/…

#Seattle is eliminating the #911operators and outsourcing any calls. @realDonaldTrump has had a few commercial’s out where someone calls 911 and they are told response times are 5 days, in another you have to go through a menu to get the right department.
Is @parscale is a prophet now?

No the left is just that predictable.

Minnesota residents are being groomed to view “expectations of safety” as a form of #privilege.

I would agree. It’s the privilege we pay for with our TAX MONEY.

So how about a compromise?
How about we STOP paying taxes?

How about we stop funding forms of government that impose restrictions on citizens who agree to comply with patriarchal pseudo religious moral solvency.

Let’s stop paying the piper and return to small municipal or personal security.

All Americans deserve the same opportunities, privileges, and freedoms. On a day where we celebrate #America, I’m equally torn between pride and guilt. And just returning from a @USCG deployment to land-locked #NavajoNation, I’m still grasping to find the right words...

A 🧵 1/
At the request of Navajo Nation’s government, FEMA mobilized to support the #COVID19 response on the ground. More resources were needed and agencies – including the #CoastGuard – were asked to help. And I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to answer that call. 2/
My eyes are now wide open to the fact that the basic rights and privileges extended to most American citizens are not enjoyed equally by all. And in an era where we’re working to stop an invisible enemy like COVID-19, all Americans deserve an equal chance at survival. 3/

1/ Beginning of a long thread.

Yesterday a CBC report noted that myself and a surgical colleague reported the hanging of a noose in June 2016. Thank you to everyone who has sent me supportive messages and phone calls since the story was published. It means a lot.
2/ I have spoken out about racism, discrimination and bias for almost 20 years. There are many within AHS that have championed this message, including our CEO who amplified this message (and me) both when she was over PPIH and in her current role.…
3/ I want to share with you the conversation I had with my 12 year old daughter last night. In it I shared my truths, and together she helped me arrive at some worthwhile insights. As she told me, “Dad you’ve always said things clearly to people. Why stop?” She’s right of course.

Interesting how some people really struggle to accept the Truth of someone else's lived experience, as if our Truths are mutually exclusive.
In struggling to accept another's Truth they then proceed to dismiss, minimise and attack the other person's lived experience, as if the other couldn't possibly have experienced it in that way. #projection #prejudice #privilege
If a strong projection (aka defense mechanism) is launched at you, a response may be to dismiss your own Truth, to accept their perspective or understanding of the situation, to withdrawn or shut down your own voice! Their perceived 'power' comes from taking yours away #privilege
