My #BlackHistoryMonth story:

In February of my senior year of high school, there was a Black History Month presentation scheduled. But attendance was optional.

The optional attendance policy upset the black students in the school. They staged a walkout during the lunch periods.
My 4th period class -- lunch periods shared the same time slots as 4th period classes -- was all white students, so we sat in our room during the walkout, which I think we could see from our window. None of us kids really understood why the walkout was occurring.
After all, it was a Black History Month presentation, so why should everyone have to attend it, instead of just students who were interested in Black History (whatever that meant), of whatever race? The attitude in the room was one of mainly confusion.

Continuing the drama... Dance card #3 in play after his #ProAbortion statement & the yearbook image surfacing. #RalphNortham now says he's not one of the people imaged in the costumed image in his yearbook. Now says he has no intention of resigning at this time.
#NorthamResign
2) 🤔Does it really make it better if #RalphNortham wasn't in the yearbook image & yet, he chose to use it as one of the images on his specific page? That, for me, would actually be a statement that appears 2be a direct #Racist political statement, orchestrated by him.
#Resign
3) #Coonman?
Really?
No certainly - NOT - him in the image & it wasn't his choice to add the image either; nor the nickname Coonman. These are in no way #Racist... #NorthamResign has no basis in fact.

Hey @GovernorVA, seems you #Aborted yourself one the last few days.
#FeelGoodDoesIt [ ? ]
2) #VAGov drama covered by top spot on #Drudge. #Northam confirms he acted in a manor which was clearly #Racist & #Offensive.
Ah hem! Still doesn't give you leeway to continue statements which present your biased agenda! This is simply #DamageControl on his part!

No surprise that this is analogious with ==> "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" once again! Sweep it under the rug for as long as possible...

This is tragically wrong.
I've been writing about the #ElectoralCollege since, well, college.
It's a relic of America's slave-owning past. It gives some voters a full vote--VT, IA, WY--& others--CA, PA. NY, TX--a quarter of a vote.
It must be abolished.
White men love to rush to the defense of the #ElectoralCollege with "it's in the Constitution!" So was slavery, but we got rid of that, too.

The EC no longer has any function except to protect Republicans from blaclk voters--which is, ironically, it's original function.
The GOP wants to maintain the #ElectoralCollege because only Democrats ever get screwed by it. As America gets more "color," those little white states where one person does equal one vote are vital, versus states that are majority minority.
That's why the EC has to go: fairness.

Thread for my white #feminist friends (of all genders)

Content: Sexual violence, racism

There is a racial divide on social media regarding #SurvivingRKelly
Most black folks I know have posted about the docuseries in the last few days (thankfully black people in my networks are expressing support of the victims of sexual abuse & coercion though their posts suggest to me that is not the case with their entire friends network)
In contrast, nearly all white folks I know are not even acknowledging the docuseries, the #RKelly conversation, nothing. This divide/contrast reminds me that white people are not required to know what’s happening to and among black folks.

Thoughtful podcast on what was probably the most promising experiment for #communism to ever work.
Many important insights:
1.) If you want an egalitarian society, politics need to be decentralized & units restricted <= ~150 families.
Interesting @nntaleb?
econtalk.org/ran-abramitzky…
2.) Kibbutz were really very close to communist ideals. NO(!) private property, children were largely raised by the community to instill the right spirit, exactly #equal salary for everyone. At their peak, more than 5% of the Israeli population lived in one.
3.) From what Ran Abramitzky explains, they were in many regard great places. Good public good provision, little conflict and very safe for children, &being in the community is good insurance against bad events happening to you. Also most places were rather well off economically

People berating me about #GeorgeHWBush, please take a seat.

GHWB was the architect of today's #racist #GOP.
GHWB ran a series of covert wars.
GHWB stayed silent while thousands of people with #AIDS died.

You can laud his post-presidency philanthropy without erasing history.
This insistence on rehabbing politicians who did real damage--folks just did this with John McCain--because they died is revisionist and does actual harm.

Many people were hurt and many others died because of Bush1.
There is no virtue in dismissing that fact.
This is the 30-year-old #WillieHorton ad everybody is talking about

THREAD: After the #TreeOfLifeSynagogue #shooting, the #KrogerShooting before that, and the +14 bombs sent by the #MAGABomber, it's crucial that we call #RightWingTerrorism out for what it is, but we also clearly need to talk about #WhiteSupremacy in the 2018 election.
We celebrate the truly #HISTORIC number of #women and #POC running for office in 2018, but we also refuse to ignore the volume & range of explicit and implicit #racist attacks almost every single candidate of color has faced in this election. That's also #WhiteSupremacy in action
Let's be clear: #POC running for elected office have ALWAYS faced hurdles to victory defined by the strength of #StructuralRacism and our country's long-standing culture of #WhiteSupremacy. But 2018 has taken it to a new level.

Federal prosecutors indict a #Russian🇷🇺woman alleged to be the chief accountant of an *ONGOING* Kremlin campaign to influence 2018 ELECTIONS in the US & EU (including troll farm Internet Research Agency) financed by "Putin's Chef," Yevgeniy Prigozhin.🤬

cnn.com/2018/10/19/pol…
One major #Russian🇷🇺social-media theme was to exploit white supremacy👉🏼trolling NFL protests against #racist policing, #immigration, the Confederate flag & “the #Charlottesville ‘Unite The Right’ rally” that killed Heather Heyer in Aug'17.

Goal: INFLAME and DIVIDE US.🤬
Pivoting off a piece by "right-wing blowhard" Michael Savage, the #Russians🇷🇺 sought to “forcefully support” Savage’s message that “any attempt to remove Trump is a direct path to **civil war** in the US."😳

"On substance and knowledge" Melania is "most impressive FLOTUS since Eleanor Roosevelt," says this editor, who seems to know nothing about any First Ladies--especially Jackie Kennedy, Barbara Bush, Hillary Clinton & Michelle Obama.

Let me unpack/deconstruct this.
1/
Hallow is chief political writer at Washington Times. He should know better.

While education doesn't necessarily equal erudition, lack of education generally means someone does not have the same lexicon as a person with advanced degrees.

Melania has no verifiable degrees.
2/
Melania allegedly speaks many languages. We have never heard this. We have heard her heavily accented English.

Conversely, Jackie Kennedy spoke several languages and conversed in them at state dinners.

⁉️WHAT⁉️

@GOP donor Steven Alembik, who gave >$20,000 to @RonDeSantisFL & lined up a speech for him at Mar-a-Lago, tweeted “F*** THE MUSLIM N—-” about Obama recently.🤬

He claims he wrote the tweet in anger, and he’s “absolutely not” a #racist.🙄

politi.co/2QKDydO
Lest you think that this #racist pile of steaming dung made only one PUBLIC slip of the tongue (or tweet), check out his shocking interview with the reporter, where he DOUBLED DOWN on his #racism‼️🤬
DeSantis recently said “monkey this up” about @AndrewGillum, yet denied he had any racial intent.🙄

This latest disgusting rant is the FIFTH #racist issue for DeSantis, his campaign or supporters in just a few months.🤬

VOTE #GillumForGovernor‼️

.@NPRWeekend just interviewed @KSPrior, because we can never highlight enough far-right extremist views. Prior actually claimed Trump and @HillaryClinton were equivalent in their treatment of women (!!!) and applauded her students being disenchanted with the electoral system.
1/
.@KSPrior teaches at Jerry Falwell's #racist @LibertyU where last year graduates returned diplomas en masse due to Fallwell Jr's grotesque support of Trump.

Prior is touting #BrettKavanaugh to overturn #RoevWade.
2/
It was an instructive interview for the utter lack of pushback by @NPRWeekend, which replicated the same MSM trend of allowing the alt-right free range spew.

@KSPrior didn't vote for Trump, but she does, clearly, support his choices, like #BrettKavanaugh.

On @tagaq's recommendation, I had the chance to watch @Alethea_Aggiuq’s documentary #AngryInuk, It's about how #WhiteSupremacist #vegan lobbyists have decimated Inuit communities with food insecurity. If you care about justice, watch this: nfb.ca/film/angry_inuk
I want to be clear, opposition to the #sealhunt is #WhiteSupremacist and #racist in nature. It is absolutely clear to me that, at best, organizations like @peta ignore their impact on #Inuit. At worst, they're party to an intended programme of starvation.
In the entire course of her documentary, @Alethea_Aggiuq tried meeting with #vegan and #animalrights activists to discuss their impact on #indigenous communities. Every single attempt at communication was met with silence or avoidance.

What do the "reporters" who profit off of the endless transphobic hate campaign in the press think of LGBT people? They are just "unbiased" observers reporting on hate groups like "#WPUK", right? Wrong, todays #TERFLEAKS are of Joani Walsh, @DailyMailUK and @thetimes "reporter"
How did a RW reporter for the Daily Heil get into her 2 minute hate against trans ppl every week? Radicalised by Janice Turner's hateful "reporting" at the Times. Into believing Alex Jones level conspiracies about "Big Pharma", she works with "radical feminists" and "lesbians"
Classic right wing scare tactics of your "daughters are in danger!", she slips into this new hate group seamlessly, despite being a racist right wing Tory who hates LGBT people in general (Don't worry, it's coming).

I lost over 100 followers this week standing up for WOC being attacked by white women.
I'm sorry to have lost them because it means those folks missed the point.
White people have an obligation to POC in America because of the damage #racism inflicts even if we aren't #racist.
1/
The hardest words in any language are "I'm sorry."
Acknowledging our flaws goes against ego.
But it's essential.
I know I am a strong person with strong Socialist politics.
I know I can be intense.
But I am a fiundamentally kind person who doesn't want to hurt people.
2/
At times I know I <have> hurt people--we all have.
And that is my point: If people tell you you have hurt them, listen.
I don't mean casual snark, but hurt.
Listen.
Say you are sorry.
Repentance is under-utilized and under-valued, and that's not just my Catholicism talking.

The @OMAROSA story today has several important facets, none of them risible.

This is a woman who was in Trump's inner circle and who had his ear.

Prior to him calling her a "low life" on Saturday, Trump lauded her and her work in various tweets and interview comments.
1/
Trump wants you to believe #Omarosa is a liar, but then there is the tape she played on @MeetThePress.

Which is evidentiary.

The #GOP and #RNC are concerned---they started an #OmarosaUnhinged hashtag and are busy tweeting about her, as are Trump's surrogates.

2/
#Omarosa isn't "unhinged." She's vengeful. Is she a liar? About some things, verifiably. About others, verifiably truthful.

That she was able to go all over Trump's White House recording people is a cause for grave concern.

It speaks to Trump's incompetence as a leader.

#AndrewSullivan has been a contrarian conservative transplant for decades now.
Pro-Bush, pro-Bell Curve, #misogynist to the core.
His latest screed is an embarrassment to @NYMag, which reps some stellar writers. There's so much awful to excerpt here.
1/
nymag.com/daily/intellig…
We're at a racial crossroads in America right now. Some of us white people have tried to write about it with passion and humility. Not #AndrewSullivan, who refers back to the atavism of 1920s xenophobia and racism with an appallingly anti-intellectual lack of self-awareness.
2/
This latest screed is a paean to white male fragility. The bluster and outrage #AndrewSullivan reserves for #SarahJeong is typical of his sneering, superior form of racist baiting with a hefty dollop of misogyny folded in.

It's essential to decry such writing when we see it.

1. Had the misfortune of hearing a full-on, old-fashioned white Colonialist diatribe delivered on CKNW this morning by Bruce Allen on his not so "Reality Check" .

#racist #classist #Transmountain #cdnpoli #bcpoli #protecttheinlet
2. Bruce delivered all the typical supremacist big business standard lines of comradery. Bruce was speaking about the Kinder Morgan protest on Burnaby Mtn & to his audience to keep them focused on the 'right talking points'.
3. Bruce spoke about the water & land protectors in the most dehumanizing terms he’s allowed to on morning radio. He called First Nations peoples DTES homeless derelicts “unaware of what they’re protesting anyway”, merely looking for a place to squat.
