By now you know about Jodi Shaw (@Smith_Surge). But perhaps you have not yet heard about Gabrielle Clark and her son, William. (Thread).
William is a biracial teenager in Nevada. He lives in transitional housing with his mother, Gabrielle, who is black and disabled. William works at a local fast food restaurant to support his mother and two siblings. His father died when he was young.
William Clark is not privileged by any stretch of the imagination. Quite the opposite. But that's now how his school, a public charter in Las Vegas, sees it.

Here's a little good news for a terrible news day. (Thread.) Toward the beginning of Covid, I wrote a piece about the holy work done by hospital chaplains. One of those people was Rocky Walker. This is Rocky:
Before he became a chaplain at Mt. Sinai, Walker served 25 years in the Army. Anyway, Rocky is a mensch. So when he texted me to say: Do you have any idea how I can get Super Bowl tickets? I’m a lifelong Chiefs fan and I heard they are giving some to health-care workers. . .
I know jack about sportsball But I know a single person with some clout in the NFL. So I thought — what the hell? — and emailed Robert Kraft. Subject line: mitzvah opportunity.

Thread: There is no more important story in the Jewish world this month. Read it. You think you know how bad the California ethnic studies curriculum. It's way, way worse. And it affects millions of children:…
California's schools are mandating the erasure of Jews and the acceptance of anti-Zionism. I blame every single American Jewish leader who didn't bang on about this every single day. Every single one.
So what can we do? Fill out this form right now (anyone can do this, not just Californians) and let the state know that you stand against neo-racism, against a curriculum pits children against one another, and that undermines what is good about America.…

Let me tell you a little bit about @RubensteinAdam, who as of this week is out at @nytimes. Adam is among the most meticulous, hard-working editors I've ever encountered. He is a total professional, which is all the more amazing because he's 25. (thread)…
Adam doesn't seek the spotlight, which is why you likely hadn't heard his name until June as the editor who published the Tom Cotton oped. Adam was one of half a dozen editors who worked on that piece. He was the most junior among them. Yet Adam was named by @nytimes.
This piece says that Adam was "thrust into the media spotlight." No. Adam was hung out to dry by his own colleagues. Then he and his work were lied about, including in this mendacious editor's note.…

Today the New York Times ran an oped about the Million Man March and Louis Farrakhan. If you read the oped and knew nothing about Farrakhan, you would think he was a gentleman. (Thread)…
More than that. You'd think he was deferential to women: "Amid critiques that the Million Man March was exclusionary and sexist, he took the advice of the women."

Let's take a look at some of Louis Farrakahn's views.
"Pedophilia and sexual perversion institutionalized in Hollywood and the entertainment industries can be traced to Talmudic principles and Jewish influence. Not Jewish influence, Satanic influence under the name of Jew." He said that in 2019.

Dear @NickCannon,

In Judaism, as you may know, we have a concept of teshuva. A lot of people translate the word as repentance, but it means a return. As in: a return to one's higher self, to one's ideals, to the good, to righteousness. (1/4)
Teshuva, or the possibility of change, “precedes the world” says Pirkei Avot, the Sayings of the Fathers. The Talmud teaches that “the place where the repentant stand is even greater than where the entirely righteous ones stand.”
That is how deeply my tradition values those that try to change for the better—a powerful lesson in our frequently merciless age. I thought of all of this as I read your thoughtful post about my book, "How to Fight Anti-Semitism."…
