iPhone : See? The rich make the case for prison abolition *for themselves* all the time (and often get it), incl for systemic violence, yet are never deemed “radical.”

It’s only “radical left” when we ask our legal system to treat normal people 1/10000th of the way it treats the wealthy.…

iPhone : “First black” anything in 2020 is embarrassing and truly shows the racism in which the institution was built on and most importantly, tried to maintain.

▪️Black, Latinx ballots 3X more likely to be rejected, studies show

iPhone : we live in a culture that exalts romantic monogamous love, but what are the relationships that have taught us the most about vulnerability? how to love deeply? how to trust? how to adventure? I promise you the answer will always be your closest friendships.

iPhone : Hi Twitter.

Literally everyday I see #COVID19 misinformation. Loads of it.

Like blatant, gonna kill people stupidity and lies.

But I’ve got nowhere to report it.

Can you do something about that?
