Fun Fact

Between 2008 and 2011, there was a 5,000% increase in the number of employees at Twitter.

Focusing on Gen Z for appropriating AAVE is an interesting choice. Have white millennials forgot they took "cancel culture" from Black Twitter and it literally became a rallying cry for rapists and fascists....?

It's been weird as hell to see AAVE treated as a Gen Z language 🙁 https://t.co/ZgJtBxpZgy

@DrRJKavanagh No attention whatsoever will be paid to attending to the NEEDS of the Brownsville community: decent schools, clean water, nutritious affordable food, housing, living-wage jobs & healthcare.

@DrRJKavanagh The horror is that the only attention this will attract will be more intense and violent policing.

Glad see the punishment for spreading junk science during a pandemic, getting your employees sick and generally opposing workers' rights is hosting SNL. Take THAT!

“you build solidarity by saying I’m here w/ you today on principle, make the connections about how our struggles are linked, and invite you to fight alongside me tomorrow. Not by saying you weren’t there with me yesterday so I refuse to be there with you today.” —nikeeta slade

This detail of Ma'Khia Bryant's life is so heartbreaking.  What if the money that the state spent to put her and her siblings into the system had gone to her grandmother — towards keeping the family together?

When White people get killed, it's breaking news and a tragedy. When Black people get killed, even children, America shrugs and the whole thing is regarded as endemic, as some sort of pathology. https://t.co/LVHHDg7pEK

Every weekend, maybe 20 to 30 people are victims of gun violence in New York City, but the shootings never trend on Twitter and cable news doesn't cover them, because the victims are Black and they happen in neighborhoods like Brownsville in Brooklyn, not Times Square. https://t.co/8Kvno9UuM4

The best thing you can do this weekend. https://t.co/VcGO56LCP8

Thinking of all the mothers separated from their children because of incarceration, for those who have lost their mothers or their children, for those who don't have great relationships with their mothers, and for people who want to be mothers but can't. This weekend can be hard.
