1/ 6 I would prefer not to invest my time in responding to such shoddy research as the so-called Harvard “disinformation” study, but I’ve received so many comments and requests, I’m compelled to do so.
2/6 A central problem is the lack of clarity over whom was identified as the “voices” of ADOS. The report ultimately reads like an extension of the old “Russian bots” smear campaign against ADOS.A shabby process of determining whose Tweets are evaluated produced a desired result.

If you are speaking out against police shootings while still supporting #JimCrowJoe, you should reassess your understanding of the Crime Bill’s effect on policing. #JimCrowJoe set the stage for continued violence and harassment of Blk men by police.

Without full repair for #ADOS via #PureReparations, I will not vote for #JimCrowJoe. #ShowUpVoteDown #downballot #Reparations #ADOS

Thread: I think this is an opportunity to talk about different "pro-black" ideologies. Its past time black people openly have discussions about black "nativism" vs Pan-Africanism and citizenship vs separatists ideology. #icantbreathe #BlackTwitter
While I do understand the natural reaction, anyone telling you that black people need to just "separate" themselves from white folks, respectfully, doesn't what the hell they're talking about. A lot of our communities are already "separate".
..and even if we did build our "own " Chinatown or little Italy. It would still be on U.S soil and subject to laws, white supremacist ideology and white fragility. We've done that before and yall act like y'all don't know what happened. We are here to eat the failures of America
