Twitter Web App : NEW: Common App is eliminating school-discipline question after finding Black applicants marked yes more than 2x as often as white applicants. Huge disparities in which school counselors flagged disciplinary records, too. wsj.com/articles/colle…

Twitter Web App : smarturl.it/BlindspotPodca… #BlindspotPodcast

iPhone : Last night was disorienting. I think it was meant to be disorienting, like much of what Trump does. So Ive tried to ground myself in history all year -- to remember what, at root, were debating. We walk through it in this weeks #USofAnxiety WNYC 🎙 wnycstudios.org/podcasts/anxie…

Twitter Web App : the worst part of this take is that, even with the most gracious read, it can only be remotely true if your definition of working class and urban excludes people of color -- who have largely rejected Trump from the jump twitter.com/RossBarkan/sta…

Twitter Web App : me, dragging my soul through the rest of this year twitter.com/gnuman1979/sta…

TweetDeck : A bias of ~The Media~ that never gets talked about is the strong bias toward coherence.

Make a reporter sit through a bizarre, rambling, nonsensical speech and they’ll be inclined to summarize it in some way that makes actual sense and grab the single sensical quote.

Sprout Social : Subway and other mass transit use is dramatically down since New York first hit PAUSE to slow the spread of COVID-19.

iPhone : White people: Have you publicly denounced white supremacy yet?

You may think it’s obvious, it is not. This country elected a White Supremacist at its leader. A leader who has since called his minions to arms. You must make it clear where you stand. Silence is complicity.

iPhone : Preston Lucas I’ve voted by mail before so I know it works. However, the President has sowed seeds of doubt regarding mail doe this election. I’m fortunate that I can vote early - which is what I will be doing.

Android : The hugely compressed timeline for all this is largely of the city’s making. Multiple examples in the story of promising ideas floated months ago but not acted on until Sept when it was too late.

iPhone : Chip Franklin The Democratic Party has zero radicals in it. Radicals = violent revolutionaries and end justifies the means. No one in the party fits that description. Bernie and AOC are social democrats of the European tradition. They are not even socialists or anti capitalists. The truth.
