How do we deal with hate that gets taught and infects our society?

We had a great discussion about this last night at our #RestorativeJustice meeting.

A civil rights activist and the son of a white nationalist leader who found a way to conquer the hate he was taught.
As a candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates (District 87) I wanted to spark a conversation that looks beyond - far beyond - the next election.

Yes, we have immediate fires to put out, but my advocacy has centered on the long game.

Where will we be in 50 years? 100?

Wow, that last #thread really took off. Let’s try another. I want to think with folks about how we can talk about #SurvivingRKelly outside the logic of the prison industrial complex.
Many of the people who responded to my last thread engaged in carceral logics saying some variation on “his ass should rot in jail” if not calls for his death. Are there other ways we can imagine justice, accountability and healing?
Prison abolitionist Mariame Kaba has said, as ppl raised w/ carceral logics it’s hard for us to imagine or desire alternatives. The #prisonindustrialcomplex has limited how we think about justice—even though other nations do things differently.

This surprised us 👉 Training does not reduce sexual harassment. We've been conducting widespread sexual harassment training in the U.S. for 15+ years now, and it has not seemed to reduce sexual harassment. #metooSTEM
Why? 1) Because of cynicism. 2) Because employees "sniff out" compliance-based trainings. 3) Because trainings change attitude but haven't been effective in changing behavior. Conclusion: We need to overhaul our approach to SH training going forward. #metooSTEM
