@xsarahleee Falsch!

Es geht nicht um die Organisation, es geht erst einmal um die #Wahrnehmung!

Auch wenn Twitter nur ein kleiner Ausschnitt aus der #Lebensrealität der sozial Segregierten ist, so existiert hier dennoch ein pluralistisches Bündnis von sehr agilen #Armutsbetroffenen!
@xsarahleee Ein Anfang waere es gewesen, diesen #Menschen mit #Empirie und konkreter #Argumentation zurück zu folgen und bereits hier kommunikativ ein Bündnis Stimme für Stimme aufzubauen.

Wichtig waere die Vielfalt der #Armutsbetroffenen!
@xsarahleee Denn es greift zu kurz auf die monetaere Not zu verweisen!
Es existieren diverse Formen faktischer Einschränkung für das #Leben & dafür zeichnet sich die jeweilige #Gesetzgebung verantwortlich!

#HartzIV / #SGBII ist nicht identisch mit d.Not bedingt durch #Erwerbsminderungsrente

1/n Dear @JimCarrey, as life gave you a voice that matters we beg you to use it for good once again.

Please #StepUpForFreedom

'We' are being discriminated, due to our choice of not getting vaccinated (yet) against Covid &/or our choice of saying no to injecting our children.👇
2/n Hear us out:

#EmotionalSituation: we suffer. Division is upon us. Many lost their jobs. Families and friends are being torn apart. Many Europeans, Canadians, Americans, Australians and other citizens of the world share this pain. #Wearemillions. 👇
3/n #FreedomOfSpeech: our voice is being shut and undermined in mass media. Pretexting public health good intentions, political leaders of our nations end up dismissing, if not censoring (on social media), solid arguments for our choice, even if bcked up by eminent scientists.👇

It is very important in this period of humanity to take a serious look at what is happening in the world friends.

Watch this video first in its entirety & reflect upon current situations critically.

#Menticide is here & with it, a new attempt to establish a "#TechnoTotalitarian" rule over the lives of American citizens.

The final variant of #Coronavirus could very well be the manifestation of a #NewWorldOrder under #totalitarian rule.
That may sound absurd, but what is very concerning is that many talking heads in the media & even public figures are now making very carefully worded emotional appeals to logic to further induce a totalitarian #masspsychosis.

Wie @souslik richtig schreibt, ist die öff. Schule in der CH gut. Manchmal auch fantastisch umgesetzt.

derbund.ch/ein-hoch-auf-u…
Womit ich nicht einverstanden bin: «(…) was passiert, wenn (…) Eltern mit Geld (…) die öffentliche Schule vor sich hertreiben. Zum Glück sind wir davon weit entfernt.»

Tatsächlich werden Privatschulen en masse eröffnet. Immer mehr Eltern machen Homeschooling.
Dabei geht es den Eltern meist darum, den Kindern eine Lernumgebung zu bieten, in der sie ihrem Lernstand & Tempo entsprechend lernen können und in der ihre physische und psychische Integrität gewahrt wird. (Ohne zu bestreiten, dass eine elitäre Schicht andere Ziele verfolgt.)

ON THIS DAY in 1941, Civil Rights Activist Joan Trumpauer Mulholland was born.

Unlike most White Christians, she decided that #Racism and #Segregation did not, and never would, fit her Christian values. Image
Her grandparents owned slaves.

In 1961 she joined the Freedom Movement for Civil Rights, and was arrested for refusing to get off a bus, and jailed. Image
Today, the Joan Trumpauer Mulholland Foundation is dedicated to educating youth about the Civil Rights Movement and how to become activists in their own communities. Image

Die sprachlich starken & scharfsichtigen, heute tls. aber toxisch wirkenden Reportagen v. #HeinrichHauser (1901-1955) sind wie ein Strudel: Man wird i. d. 1920/30er Jahren eingesaugt & endet in d. Gegenwart. Längerer Thread zu Hauser, #Fleisch & den #Schlachthöfen v. #Chicago. /1
Wie andere Autoren d. #Avantgarde feiert Hauser die Möglichkeiten d. fossilen Zeitalters noch vor d. "great acceleration" nach 1945 (Steffen/Crutzen/McNeill 2007). Es geht nicht bloß um Großstädte, Automobile o. Flugzeuge: 1931 besucht er d. Schlachthöfe v. #Armour & Company /2
in #Chicago. Aus seiner Sicht ist es ein Routinetermin, dessen Notwendigkeit wohl auf Upton #Sinclairs #TheJungle (1906) zurückgeht. Interessant ist, wie bei Hauser d. Zusammenhang v. Industrialisierung, Mechanisierung, steigendem Wohlstand, Fleischkonsum & Rassismus sichtbar /3

Dear diary,
I know no matter what, I must put my feelings aside and never be aggressive to a person. It's part of being a service dog.
But right now I wish I was allowed to take a big crap on the steps of the #AlbertaLegislature to show my disgust. The humans ... 1/9
that have the privilege to represent #Alberta citizens are preaching #inclusion and promising to tear down #barriers and tackle systemic #discrimination are the same people that let my mistress slip through the cracks and are why we live in nearly complete #segregation from...2/9
our community. They claim to promote #inclusion and #independence of the disabled with their tax payer funded program to provide essential #mobility equipment, like the power wheelchair my mistress needs so we can leave our home without human assistance. More than a year...3/9

Confronting a society too sympathetic to the needy, the downtrodden, the outcast, too willing to lend aid and assistance to the enfeebled offspring of unfit parents, still, #MargaretSanger #persisted.
Always she pressed the case of desirable and worthy self-concern, rejection of the morality of care for the less fortunate, and brotherhood of man.
"We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.

JA zur #Wohninitiative !

Eine gesunde Gesellschaft braucht eine Durchmischung der Bevölkerung. Mehr #Segregation schadet. Das ist hinlänglich bekannt.

Es ist nicht in Ordnung, wenn Geringverdiener*innen ausquartiert werden.

(a thread)
Damit gehen weitere Wege einher. Zur Arbeit, zum Arzt, zu Betreuungsplätzen ...

Dies bedeutet höhere Kosten. Kann man sich das ÖV-Ticket zum Arzt nicht mehr leisten, geht man nicht zum Arzt, geht man nicht in die Beratung, kann man Termine nicht einhalten.
Weitere Wege bedeuten weniger zeitl. Ressourcen.

Wege kosten Zeit.
Weniger Zeit bedeutet mehr Druck.
Mehr Druck = mehr psych. Belastung

Günstigere Wohnungen bieten öfter schlechte Wohnbedingungen.

Wieder mehr Lärm, mehr Druck, mehr psych. Belastung.

#DisabilityTwitter #Madison disabled students need your help. Please spread the word & if you have expertise or clout also email the school board. Madison plans to buy a multi-million dollar facility to house (segregate) “alternative” students, aka disabled students, esp BIPOC.
Let @MMSDschools know that disabled students deserve to be integrated & included not isolated & incarcerated. This is the same district where a black disabled girl’s braids were ripped out & a black disabled teen was pinned & punched by 3 police officers. That’s just THIS YEAR!

We have a new study forthcoming in Exceptional Children. We examine whether students of color are more or less likely to be identified as having #disabilities in U.S. states with histories of de jure and de facto racial #segregation. (1)
Special education has been theorized to have been used as an alternative legal strategy for schools to avoid racial integration. This prior work was historical and descriptive. Others have suggested that over-identification might be especially likely to occur in the South. (2)
Yet other work suggests that students of color may be under-identified as having disabilities in the U.S. South, incl. due to political and economic factors. Mechanisms hypothesized to result in under-identification nationally may also be operating similarly in the South. (3)

So we couldn't have a debate about #ClimateChange, but apparently the next debate is going to be about #segregation and #busing. In 2019. So here is some data.
1/
This issue was decided by the US Supreme Court in 1954 in Brown v. Topeka Board of Ed, which desegregated the schools. But since white people still refused to integrate the schools, we needed another #SCOTUS ruling.
2/
In 1971 the #SCOTUS ruled--UNANIMOUSLY, in an opinion written by conservative Chief Justice Warren Burger-- in Swann v. Charlotte-Mecklenberg Board of Ed that busing was essential to speeding up the process of desegregation mandated in 1954 by Brown.

#TuesdayThoughts: I wasn't able to be as productive as I wanted to be this year given an (often-ass-kicking) autoimmune disorder, but here's a thread of a few highlights.

As always, I remain so grateful to you all for your continued support.❤️
First, I am very proud of co-editing, with @m_hild, Reconsidering Southern Labor History: Race, Class, and Power. We had perceptive, brilliant scholars contributing essays on a wide variety of topics. Look for the paperback release in 2019!

Second, was absolutely honored to be asked to write a piece commemorating the life and legacy of #MartinLutherKing #MLK for the National Civil Rights Museum. I chose to write about #poverty and the #PoorPeoplesCampaign:

Just sayin' - I've got a graf in my #Mississippi piece for @BitterSouth tomorrow that's already made two grown men cry.

Facts can be devastating.

Keep pushing for the truth, my friends. The #ProgressiveSouth will ultimately prevail.
In the South -esp the Deep South- needing a #birthcertificate for #voter registration really is an impossibility for a sizable percentage of older African Americans.

This article is incredible:

TFW you're waiting on your essay to drop after it's been described as such:

"It's going to stir up some shit, and do so with authority..."😉

Happy Thursday, peeps.
