Oh did you want a long early morning rant #thread? Yes? No? Too late, here it is. Let’s talk about how the insistence on returning to college football not only a reflection of racism & capitalism, but also the deep failures of patriarchal culture. Ready? Let’s go.
Ok so yesterday I talked a bit about racism & capitalism in the organized sport industry particularly football. Here’s that thread. Note: I’m sure there are scholars who have written about this, this is just my Black feminist quick take.
So football relies heavily on the athletic performance of Black men for the entertainment & profit of predominantly white men. In the NFL when players protest, they’re told to shut up & play or that they make enough money so they shouldn’t care (racist capitalist perspective).

2. In the exercise of his duties — at every choice point — power and dominance will prevail over others’ welfare. #DutyToInform

A thread on Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, social justice and
‘the poor people who live on the busy roads’.
I was one of those 'poor people'.
I hear a lot about this group suddenly, now we are discussing LTNs.

When I was a kid in the 70’s in Birmingham, we didn't have much. My first home was a high rise block on a council estate. Here I am aged 2 – I don’t know who’s house this was, because our house was pretty bare.
Here I am aged around 8, in the garden of our second home. Again it’s a council property but a house this time, not a flat.
Things were getting better - we were still broke, but we had a little more space.

கோவை சுந்தராபுரம் பகுதியில் உள்ள தந்தை பெரியாரின் சிலை மீது சில நச்சுக்கிருமிகள் காவி சாயத்தை ஊற்றி அவமதிப்பு செய்துள்ளனர். இது கண்டிக்கத்தக்கது. இதற்கு காரணமான விஷமிகள் யாராக இருந்தாலும் அவர்களை கைது செய்து கடுமையான நடவடிக்கை எடுக்க வேண்டும்!(1/4)
தந்தை பெரியாரின் சிலைகள் மட்டும் தொடர்ந்து அவமதிக்கப்படுகிறது என்றால், அவரது கொள்கைகள் தமிழகத்தில் கடந்த சில காலமாக ஊடுருவியுள்ள நச்சுக்கிருமிகள், விஷப்பாம்புகளை அச்சமடையச் செய்துள்ளன; அதன்விளைவு தான் இது என்பதை புரிந்து கொள்ள முடியும்!(2/4)
கொள்கை அடிப்படையில் எதிர்க்க துணிவில்லாத கொரோனாவை விட மோசமான இந்த நச்சுக்கிருமிகள் மிகவும் ஆபத்தானவர்கள்; சமுதாயத்தில் நஞ்சை பரப்புபவர்கள். அவர்களிடமிருந்து நமது பிள்ளைகளைக் காப்பதும், விழிப்புணர்வூட்டுவதும் தான் நமது முதல் கடமையாக இருக்க வேண்டும்!(3/4)

These are the #stories of #math that we celebrate, amplify and make central to the idea of #maths as a #objective #neutral #culture-free subject. #Math can do no #harm, and the #logical “pure math” thinking of #Mathematicians is worthy of emulation. But... 1/x
2/x ... "What about pure mathematics and mathematicians who merely prove theorems? Is there any #ethical component comparable to what you find in other fields of #science?" - R. Hersh in Experiencing #Mathematics
3/x One point of view: "there's no need for #mathematicians to have a code of #ethics, because what we do matters so little that we can do whatever we like."

2/🧵As a new academic year is upon us and new interns and R2’s have just started their roles.... with shiny new Littmans and eyes full of promise it might be nice to tell a story about when it doesn’t go according to plan. 👉🏾
3/🧵 Often in medicine we are led to believe we are the ONLY ones who have dealt with unexpected situations, experienced doubt about the specialty choice or been forced to survive a tumultuous experience WHILE maintaining our commitment to learning. 👉🏾

This is the single best advice for any doctor at any stage: listen to nurses. In particular, listen to Black nurses

Also, protect nurses. In healthcare the terminology is “writing orders” - if that is not power imbalance, I don’t know what is

One thing I have noticed on social media is: even at pre-med stage, the condescension & disrespect towards nurses sometimes is already there

Much of recent #MedTwitter drama I engaged in was because, though I knew it would be wise to “look away” could not

not if vs Black nurses
Across the board, regardless of race, when nurses, or anyone, is bullied within in clinical practice settings - setting that already have high rates of error

on many levels

it is anti-#safety and #quality for patients & staff

In recent years have started to question the traditional approach to #narrativemedicine. Who owns a story? What lens is applied? I get it is seen as important for “joy of practice” to tell these stories as doctors. Except, these are actual lives and bodies of human beings.
As in, I don’t know the right answer but I also don’t think we are asking enough questions of ourselves, our profession, our peers, our professors/attendings.

Ours is a profession that labels

Stop being a pawn in divide and conquer. Ask yourself these questions 👇

Whoever produced this, brill!

Black Questions Matter…

I have a few points to add. #MPD & #ENR is a two-minute drive from each other. What did they need to burn down? Was Omar investment properties scorched? #derekchauvin worked at #ENR for 17 years. I was told #GeorgeFloyd harrived to MN 4 years ago from TX.
Why did an attorney go on Facebook and claim #Georgefloyd died in 2017? Why did I spend two hours looking for a #georgefloyd in obituaries or in Corpus Christi but came up with nothing? George Floyd may as well be John Smith. Why did the attorney seem surprised his FB page

This - not only the social structure of South Asian culture, whether India or Pakistan, but the experience of Colonialism. We understand this in implicit & explicit ways used for re-establishing positions of dominance in the U.S. as "model minority" - use that for social justice
Colonialism layered over social hierarchy in South Asian culture, not erasing social structures. In chattel slavery stolen African bodies were all the same - former king now a slave. We kept our names, not taking masters' names. We accessed education.

When we think we get places in America only through hard work that is self-serving narrative and myth. Yes, there's hard work, but hard work that gets rewarded. We also get places because we know how to "work it" - work the system like systems that worked for us in the homeland.

#GeorgeFloyd protesters have halted a long line of cars along the Interstate 579 over the Allegheny River in #Pittsburgh.

A car is on fire outside PPG Paints Arena.

Stay tuned to @TribLIVE for developing coverage. Also: @dillonswriting & @nsmallwoodphoto
UPDATE: Traffic cleared by police on I-579 — but an ambulance just reached the off-ramp to treat an injured man near the intersection of Route 28/Chesnut Street.

Several #protesters told me that a car driver got inpatient and rammed into the protester.

Tristen Nesmith, 23, of Beaver Falls said he saw a car strike one of the fellow #protesters along the I-579/Veterans Bridge over the Allegheny River.

The driver got frustrated, “started reviving up his engine and just hit my man for no reason. He wasn’t doing anything wrong.”

Umbereen S Nehal MD MPH: who is this person? Several people have been asking

A thread

Where am I from? Hooboy.
Let’s say, citizen of the world, human ping pong ball. Third culture kid. Genetic mutt

Born: 🇺🇸
🇵🇰 parents - when my parents born colonial rule, pre-Pakistan
To thoroughly annoy my Twitter bestie, @DrvanTilburg

Am an ENFP - a cross between Snoopy, Robin Willians, Ellen Degeneres, Dr. Seuss, Charles Dickens, Upton Sinclair

I border on ENTP - love new info and love to challenge in order to break through barriers or limitations
My great-grandfather was given title "Khan Bahadur" (brave). As a judge, a brown man under Colonial rule, he threw the book at a British attorney. "Learn the law" if in his courtroom. Hence my stiff moral backbone

My mom & me:

#thread on ableist language: I’ve seen a lot of Madison folks using ableist language to talk about the #pandemic protesters & I want to talk briefly about why this language is harmful on multiple levels to disabled ppl & to the cause of collective liberation. CW: ableist language
The most common thing I see is folks referring to protesters as crazy, insane, mental, nutjobs, etc. This language suggests all the protesters (yesterday 1.5k in Madison) have psychiatric disabilities & often imply that as a result they’re dangerous or not worth taking seriously.
This discursive approach is ableist bc it suggests that people with psych disabilities are inherently dangerous, dismissible, disposable, etc. It adds to the oppression of folks with psych disabilities, relies on this oppression to be effective.

Love @rogerwaters for the music which got me through as a teen...but his opinion on our President is way off. Said from a conscience he helped develop. How can he stand w/ AOC Schumer Schifty & all the other nutcases seeking to dissolve national sovereignty, enriching the 0.001%.
This is the globalist socialist marxist regime! @rogerwaters
One is not allowed anything BUT what they say or you are "racist, xenophobic, intolerant, white supremacist, ..." This has been the single largest disappointment for me, that @rogerwaters stands with those who are oppressing the entire nation. WOW has that hit me hard. Very sad!!

When I submitted my first book proposal I had no idea what I was doing. So, I bought a book called, How to Write a Book Proposal. It helped. I got the book deal! BUT... 1/ #FaithRootedWriting…
When I spoke with a potential book agent 1yr later she coughed on her sip of tea when I told her how much I received for the advance. I was just happy someone paid me for my writing at all. I had no idea what was possible with a book agent. 2/ #faithrootedwriting #SocialJustice
