1- I am getting sick of all these people that go like:
#COVIDー19 is a #hoax because I drove to a hospital and the parking lot/front entrance was empty.

Well genius, they are empty because everybody with minor surgery and non-life threatening conditions has been turned away in
2-In preparation of a crisis. That is way hallways are mostly empty. Visitors no longer can wait in halls.
3-Also, there is the fact that since ppl are at home, there are less car accidents and such that require hospitalizations.
4-People are not going to hospitals unless a real
5-Emergency is threatening their lives.
6-You have something called #Hippa Laws that prevent footage being shown from hospitals. Fortunately for you, same thing doesn't apply to Italy, Turkey, Spain, and others. So if you get a kick out of watching other suffers, get off American

A yr ago today, I watched in real-time an attack unfold before my eyes. On a Jummah in March last yr, a white supremacist attacked two #mosques in #Christchurch killing 51 Muslim worshippers as they prayed. Pls take a moment to pray for the victims & their families today.
Scars of the #Christchurch massacre linger. Slowly the shock recedes until all we feel is the echo of the tragedy. One yr on after Haji Daoud Nabi of Al Noor #mosque in #Christchurch uttered the words “Welcome, brother” only to b met w/ bullets in response…
Aya Al-Umari's brother was one of the victims of the #Christchurch #mosque attack. “Every day I feel like Hussein is with me. Any decisions that I make, I just think about, OK, what would Hussein do in this situation?" she said.…

This thread is for #white #vegans & #animalrights activists who recognize we are often the problem in the way we articulate issues having to do with the other animals. One step is to learn as much as you can about #WhiteSupremacy & #WhitePrivilege. Read! #BlackHistoryMonth2020
Do you know the history of the Civil Rights movement? You could start by reading vol 1 of "America in the King Years," "Parting the Waters" by @taylorbranch.…
@taylorbranch In 1962, the Civil Rights Commission was going to make a very strong statement about racism. Politically, it would be problematic for President Kennedy. JFK was told "It is legal for the police to use dogs." So, turn to "Afro-Dog" next.…

My travel to @sundancefest has been delayed because of a privileged white lady who pulled some *shit*.

Plane was closed and about to leave when woman approached the gate. She’d been chilling in the lounge and missed her flight. Was told she would be on the next one... 1/n
...her bag would meet her in SLC. She was NOT HAVING IT.

She’s apparently an elite member and frequent flier. She demanded her bag be taken off the plane or she be let on. She was told “no”.

Someone wasn’t used to being told no. 2/n
She threatened the gate staff. They wouldn’t budge. @AmericanAir staff were great- they were not taking #whitelady bullshit.

She had one move left. She knew it would work. She mustered all her drama and said the words “there’s a bomb in my bag” 3/n

I’ve been thinking abt allyship lately & wyte ppl who genuinely want to be/do better. It can sometimes be hard to ask questions. I recently reread Robin DiAngelo’s “White Fragility: Why It’s so Hard to Talk to White People About Racism” & it got me thinking. 1/38
Linked here: Very often I hear that this person/that person are “good” people. It didn’t click until a few years ago that some wyte ppl think being liberal/democrat or being generally “good” people means you are an ally. That’s not how it works. 2/
MLK critiqued the “good” racism of his liberal allies. These types police our words & tactics like you know better what works. Believe me, we have tried all the polite ways & they don’t work.
Another point is, you don’t get to tell me as a POC (or other BIPOC) how we should 3/

The Black American Church vs. Eurocentric Christianity

A church birthed fourth out of the wildfires of slavery and #whitesupremacy becomes one of the oldest institutions opposed to racism in the world: #TheBlackChurch


"Satan, Were Gonna' Tear Your Kingdom Down"
"If it has come about that today The Black Christ; has to be led into the field against The White Christ; by a young black poet, than a deep cleft in the church of Jesus Christ is indicated."

The Black Church vs.The White Church

The story of a church birthed fourth out of the wildfires of an apostasy called #whitesupremacy, a church that becomes the oldest Western institution opposed to racism in the entire world: #TheBlackChurch


"As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are TODAY."

Genesis 50:20
Lex iniusta non est lex (English: An unjust law is no law at all), is a standard legal maxim. Originating with (the African) St. Augustine, the motto was used by St. Thomas Aquinas and quoted by Martin Luther King Jr. during the Civil Rights Movement.

When the "lily-whites" come for us, say to us... "But, what about Chicago" say to that monster, "But, what about the Republican Party that LOST the black vote in Chicago due to #whitesupremacy?

They wanna talk about #Chicago.

Well, bitch, let's talk.

Let's talk about Chicago.
Let's talk how your racism fucked it up, and how your indifference and outright stupidity opened the door for Democrats takeover. You spat on the black folk in Chicago, chose white supremacy over them, and now you talk of Chicago being a slave plantation.

How fucking dare you.
But I tell you this truth...

Hell hath no fury like a Black Conservative scorned!

Two days ago I talked about #whitesupremacy. Yesterday I talked about #patriarchy.

Combine those two toxins and you get misogynoir, the vile poison suffered by women of color, and more specifically, black women.
Yesterday I joked and told a friend the amount of rum it would take for me to discuss #misogynoir would put me in a coma. I wish that was funny. I don’t want to write about this sober. I’m not qualified to discuss this with nuance and deftness.

Also, I am out of rum.
Coined by a queer black feminist Moya Bailey, misogynoir lies at the heart of all of what we think of as intersectional.

If you could imagine a Venn diagram that displays the overlap of racism, sexism, transphobia, & homophobia, the cruel bullseye at its center is misogynoir.

In clear prose, @BriannaWu takes us through the birth of today’s culture of public harassment which helped normalize Trump’s “politics” of the personal attack in @NYTimesOpinion

#gamergate was FIVE years ago
“I meticulously documented all of it — the death threats, the rape threats, the identity theft... I waited for law enforcement to prosecute the men who had threatened to murder me and other women... I waited for justice. I am still waiting.”
I missed that there was an impotent FBI report in January 2017. It’s not like there was nothing ELSE going on that month. *cough*…

Allow me to coin the phrase, “Armchair Dirty Harry” to describe the naive fantasy of the “good guy with a gun.”

In his fantasy, #ArmchairDirtyHarry strolls calmly into a hail of bullets, sending the bad guys sprawling from the force of his high-powered firearm.
In an *actual* firefight, #ArmchairDirtyHarry’s fantasy meets reality. Our wannabe hero knows walking into a hail of bullets is suicide.

Heroism in situations like #ElPaso rarely, if ever, involves the gun-toting citizen. The armchair hero believes GOP propaganda, not his eyes.
#HeroesOfElPaso saved lives.

They didn’t walk into a hail of bullets, they risked their lives getting customers and employees out of Walmart. And then they continued helping where they could.

So where was #ArmchairDirtyHarry?…

In front of the White House now: anti-white supremacy rally in response to a weekend of violence that left more than 30 people dead in two mass shootings over a span of mere hours. #dc
Sherrilyn Ifill, the director of the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, tells the crowd here that President Trump “did not invent white supremacy,” though he has given it new life in America. People in the audience are shouting “yes!” as she speaks. #dc #WhiteSupremacy
The list of grievances here is long: Speakers are decrying gun violence, racism, the president’s rhetoric, Russian election interference, a lack of action in the Senate on gun control and lack of action against white supremacist groups by the US Department of Justice. #DC

Hypocrisy isn't just a feature of #whitesupremacy, it's like a wheel to a car, water to a hose! But, perhaps there's no better way to highlight this than to zoom in on the poorest cities run by white Republicans.

Places like Beattyville, Kentucky:…
FACT: Although the poverty rate is higher in districts represented by Democrats, most poor people in the United States live in a community represented by a Republican.
When did Trump ever refer to these impoverished (white) communities as "a place no human being would want to live.” Infact, he uses empathetic language to talk poverty, and drugs crisis in West Virginia.

Did he ever refer to the country of Hungary as being a "shit hole country"?

In other dystopian news, this is happening. A symposium celebrating a privately funded, not up to code, wall on private land. Steve Bannon, the wall fundraiser vet, Kris Kobach, nationalist influencers & more. They’ll also be touring & propagandizing ICE concentration camps.
Despite failures, hate and fear stoked by “”ThE WaLL”” generates many opportunities to capitalize & swindle their own base, particularly elders & retirees. It’s also created coalition & normalizing for dangerous nativists. As it‘s always been an intended.…
The strategy here is not only to capitalize on fear and hate but to undermine government to even further legitimize themselves while creating grounding for Steve Bannon’s economic #nationalism.

Bannon’s c4 org COAR is a sponsor of the event.

Also, if you’re saying, “He’s racist, but…” your privilege is showing. People of color do not have the luxury of qualifying or ignoring it. #Racism
If you see “Go back where you came from,” literally #1 on the #whitesupremacy all-time greatest hits list, and deny the blatant racism of the person who uttered it, you are truly living in a bubble of privilege and denial. #Racism
A leader encouraging a chant of “Send her back!” Towards a citizen who is a person of color at a political rally has effectively stepped over the line of #Racism to fascism.

@realDonaldTrump Thanks for your admission of guilt old man.

My tweet of about a year ago is aging well. I predicted you'd admit your guilt on Twitter.

Narcissistic sociopaths are so predictable if you know how they behave.

@realDonaldTrump Did everyone see this announcement yesterday? I wonder what possible actions in the Middle East these 3 are planning on discussing?
@realDonaldTrump Did everyone see this today? The whole addition of a citizenship question on the #2020Census was concocted by an architect of #GOP gerrymandering to advance #whitesupremacy & disenfranchise Democratic voters.

1. Dear fellow Jews, we must all - every single one of us - denounce what has been said here. We must be heard above the destructive noise of this rhetoric. There is no place for Hitler-praising, Holocaust revising and white supremacy in any Jewish community.
2. That this rhetoric is coming from a community that molds young minds who go on to join the Israeli IDF should be viewed with horror at what is inevitably to be a prelude to war crimes. This rhetoric also puts the lives of every Jew in danger...
3. Especially in America, where we are being gunned down in our houses of worship. This rhetoric gives Nazis and white-power black-booters ammunition. I don't expect the Israeli leadership to come out against these teachings.
