It’s both quality and heart/spirit. Japan, Korea and Morocco haven’t had the quality/skill of the big teams, but put in unmatched effort to win against difficult odds. US men’s team haven’t shown much of either. Leaving players unmarked, not getting back, not putting in the work. https://t.co/dde5kb4y9x

If every Black person had a college degree, we’d still have less than half the wealth of white high school grads and 1/6th the wealth of white college degree holders. Educational scholarships aren’t going to fix this. https://t.co/cWzKEMG9n9 https://t.co/cmCvIA1sR0

Thousands of articles have been published detailing various human rights abuses by ICE agents. Virtually none of them identify the names of the ICE agents responsible. Meanwhile… https://t.co/ktwnQ7Jpu7

Police killed at least 1,054 people through November 27, 2022. Police are killing people at higher rates in 2022 than *any year on record* in the United States. https://t.co/0VQVssyYOK

This is an important first step but four of these five states already pay prison laborers $0.04-$1.00/hr. Removing this language from the constitution won’t change that. Incarcerated workers should get the same rights as other workers, with minimum wage protections. https://t.co/BSF44BEEDR

PAY ATTENTION TO COUNTY SHERIFF ELECTIONS. This is one of the biggest ways you can help combat police violence and mass incarceration this year. Let me break it down…

local news stop credulously reporting obviously made up stuff from the police, challenge level: impossible being dragged for three miles at over 100mph would turn you into ground meat. a little grease spot. https://t.co/YkmQYe67V9 https://t.co/DsKUPiMRc9

Kinda fun to watch the “We’re proud of you boys, great effort” for the WC team, knowing that the last TWO times the men’s basketball team failed to win a gold medal they tore the entire program down and rebuilt it from the ground up

An economist did an experiment by emailing ~2000 police agencies asking for help filing a complaint. He randomized the “sender’s” name to signal race/ethnicity and sex. Overall RR 67%; agencies less likely to respond to emails signed w/Black or Hispanic names. #AcademicTwitter https://t.co/5XGtfPnXYW

The thing about the right-wing news ecosystem is that you don't have to do any reporting, reveal any facts or even have a plausible story. You just have to make it *look* like a bombshell.

America's most comprehensive database of police violence shows that cops have killed 1,054 people in less than 11 months of 2022. And Black people, just 13% of the U.S. population, are 24% of those killed! We have to end this needless cycle of death! https://t.co/fZGWH1n3SI

The message I take from this is that the new owner of this platform considers any conversation you ever have or had across twitter’s email servers fair game to hand to a Substack sex pest to publish if it suits his purposes.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats vote to make South Carolina, not Iowa, leadoff presidential nominating state, add Georgia, Michigan to first 5.

White privilege enables White researchers to claim authority on Black issues, while questioning the ability of Black people to conduct objective research.

I don't understand how and why Overdose Prevention Centers are more controversial than 100k deaths a year.

We thought these whites might reject this information due to motivated reasoning. Interestingly, they were skeptical of the information, yet were influenced by it! So, opp to antiracism is not a total barrier to communicating accurate information about racial discrimination. https://t.co/CgchvD9l3A

Whites who strongly oppose antiracism update beliefs about the severity of anti-Black discrimination when presented with this authoritative social science data about racial hiring discrimination. https://t.co/DNaVuzR3lb

Opposition to antiracism (or, anti-antiracism) is more strongly related to Trump support than almost any measure we examine (e.g., political ideology, socioeconomic variables, racial resentment, explicit racism, endorsement of stereotypes, IAT). https://t.co/uMukVSZZjJ

In national survey data, we find antipathy toward antiracist claims and activism is widespread among whites and powerfully predicts a range of conservative views. More than 80% of white Republicans express antipathy to antiracism. https://t.co/3WaDyLXhZs

A nine-member Reparations Task Force found that Californians who are the descendants of enslaved African Americans should be compensated $223,200 each due to housing discrimination practices from 1933 to 1977 (No paywall) https://t.co/aePdNXxBi1

The Great Railroad Strike of 1877 had the support of 100,000 workers after wages were cut for the 3rd time in a year. Railroad barons used militias, the National Guard, and federal troops to stop the strike by killing about 100 people. They don't teach any of this in school.

i've been waiting for research on this to drop. my estimate for sweeps was that it would be a 90-95% failure rate. looks like 90% failure at temporary shelter and 99.8% failure rate at permanent housing. https://t.co/hWSVRqoUeN

It’s important that we understand the scope of problem. I’m thankful to @samswey for tracking this data and providing such helpful visualizations. https://t.co/9W338UPChq

Remember how Brett Favre stole money from the poorest people in his state for his daughter's volleyball team and Jerry Jones was just discovered to be a part of a racist mob back in the day that was intimidating Black kids? Nope. The power of wealth and whiteness.

San Franciscans voted 62-38 not to entrust police with tasers. Pretty sure most San Franciscans wouldn’t want police to have killer robots.

Having been looking at the output of some woo merchants lately, one of things I'm struck by is how many things that they claim to be mysteries simply aren't. A really common one is Inca architecture "How did they do it???? ALIENS!!!!" Well, no. They did it like this A 🧵 1/n https://t.co/vShrgbWi9O

Police are killing people more, *even* with all of the diversity, body cameras, consent decrees, prosecutions, convictions, additional funding since Michael Brown was killed in 2014 https://t.co/GeBXqhA4rI

"Black people are most likely to be killed by police" and are "3x more likely to be killed by police than white people." https://t.co/7wRJWi2Dg3

And in Boston, Chicago and Minneapolis, police killed Black people at over 25x the rate of white people. Black people were disproportionately represented in fatalities in 48 of the top 50 largest U.S. cities. https://t.co/r8Cb2JpUBQ

The “chilling effect” on policing supposedly instilled by protests and backlash is, unsurprisingly, yet another lie told by cops. https://t.co/hCfD6Ef5Lu

i want to be very clear as someone who was forcefully hospitalized by police, lied to and brought to a second hospital by police. this is caging, it's basically jail or prison. it can be harder to get out of - I never saw or spoke to a lawyer. for a month. https://t.co/IWKH8KGuEp

Google offered the “it’s a chicken salad” lady just $500 to purchase her sound. It’s crazy how these big corporations offer black creators peanuts but even crazier that some accept it just for a look. Salute to her tho for understanding her worth
