Five years ago today, Sandra Bland was found hanged in a Texas jail, after being arrested for a failure to signal. While officials ruled her death a suicide, so many questions remain. She still deserves justice today. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2019/05/07/us/sandra-bland-video-brian-encinia.amp.html

USA population 328.2 million. European Union 446 million inhabitants. There is no excuse. We did it wrong.

This chart is amazing. You have to watch it until the end. Wait for it...

One of our Asian American community members paid for this #BlackLivesMatter billboard in SW Houston to show support and empathy... Since then he's received death threats from his own community.

Tomorrow there is a plan to protest the sign.

I need your help to counter it.

I don’t like to promote myself but here it goes... One of my poems has been published! https://gnashingteethpublishing.com/blog/rio-born-by-roberto-a-lopez/ It’s part of  @GnashingTeethPub “MYAmerica” project. There are a few grammatical errors 🥺 but I hope it gets the point across about the  #border & #956  #AbolishDHS

Latinos...don’t be Goyas.

On June 22, Abbott said if the three metrics he’s watching were to double w/in a month, it would place Texas “in an urgent situation where tougher actions will be required.” On Tuesday, two weeks after his remarks, the # of hospitalizations & weekly avg of new cases had doubled.

Dr. Fauci said Monday, "We are still knee-deep in the first wave of this ... It was a surge, or a resurgence of infections superimposed upon a baseline ... that really never got down to where we wanted to go." He is not present at today's WH Coronavirus Task Force briefing.

If any of you nice white folks wanna help an immigrant brown boy pitch a book/screenplay, let me know. 👀👀👀

ICE is now trying to deport students enrolled in colleges and universities that are teaching exclusively online due to COVID-19. This is needlessly cruel and must be challenged in court.

This is bad. ICE just told students here on student visas that if their school is going online-only this fall, the students must depart the United States and cannot remain through the fall semester.

Katie Miller, press secretary for Mike Pence, quoted in Jacob Soboroff's new book, Separated: "DHS sent me to the border to see the separations for myself -- to try to make me more compassionate -- but it didn't work."

Latino & Black residents are 3x as likely to become infected & nearly 2x as likely to die from COVID as their white neighbors. Many have front-line jobs that keep them from working at home; rely on public transit, or live in cramped apartments or multigenerational homes.  #txlege
