iPhone : Regarding what the president tweeted today, please read this. I recommend examining the Black Lives Matter movement through the lens of the women who started it—not from the perspective of some bigot more concerned about white feelings than black survival. rol.st/3e2i9bj
iPhone : GQ Magazine Correspondent Julia Ioffe asks, "If kneeling in protest during the national anthem is disrespectful for the troops, what is ignoring intelligence that our troops are being hunted for money?"
iPhone : The 13th Amendment outlawed slavery—with one big caveat: “except as a punishment for a crime.” For a century and half, that’s been used to re-enslave American citizens (disproportionately black men). So I’m introducing a Constitutional amendment to end this abomination.
iPhone : People need to understand how huge this is. Maya Moore is one of the most decorated basketball players of all time and she halted her career IN HER PRIME to right an injustice. This is just amazing. twitter.com/bleacherreport…
iPhone : The fact that Trump’s Justice Dep’t is legally able to threaten two lawyers with a MINIMUM of FORTY YEARS in a cage for *property damage* tells you everything about the evil of mandatory minimums. Please read and share this.
iPhone : This year I took a case to trial that, in the interests of justice, should never have been brought against my client. I filed a motion to exclude the prosecutor & he wrote a scathing reply. Today I got one of the sentences he wrote tattooed on me as a badge of honor ✊🏻
iPhone : No country on earth has successfully contained Covid-19 without closing nonessential businesses and paying people to stay home. Government intervention is the only way out. Pretending capitalism and personal responsibility are enough has caused thousands of preventable deaths.
iPhone : Does the ‘best person for the job’ brigade genuinely believe all the most talented, hardworking, creative, innovative people in the word just coincidentally happen to be white, straight, cis, middle-aged men, then?
iPhone : 'Zero COVID' strategy is not about lockdown. In fact, S. Korea never locked down. It's about mass testing & tracing to figure out who has the virus, & get them into isolation during infectious phase- so that they don't pass it on to anyone else. This is classic outbreak control.
iPhone : Y’all are doing everything EXCEPT getting the cops to stop killing bLACK people. I love murals, voice actors, and capital letters as much as anyone else, but I can’t enjoy it if cops are still killing bLACK people. A nice dinner in a burning house is not a meal I want to eat.
