Since we witnessed George Floyd’s agonized death under the knee of racist law enforcement, it’s become clear, even to white folk, that the retrograde, ignorant, isolated attitude of “racism died when slavery was abolished” is history.

How can I not cry out for justice for Fair Wayne Bryant, a 62-year-old African American man whose life sentence for stealing hedge clippers was just upheld by the Louisiana Supreme Court?

 @NPR Politics Stop trying to both sides this. We'll believe China is against Trump as soon as they rescind the 38 trademarks awarded to the Trump family, call in the millions in loans he owes, and the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China moves out of the 20th floor of Trump Tower.

and heres an effort to help

When we lived in public housing my mom started a community garden to grow food to save money and to occupy the kids that lived there and the public housing authority came & pulled out all the plants and poured bleach into the ground to destroy it. Because gardens weren't allowed.

Lindsey Graham: refuses to extend Covid unemployment assistance or fight for working families. 

Also Lindsey Graham: spends nearly $1M on private planes and golf, gives himself 3 pay raises.

Trump's own AIDS council takes a stand against his anti-trans health care rule Read more at  @Washington Blade: https://www.washingtonblade.com/2020/08/07/trumps-own-aids-council-opposes-his-anti-trans-health-rule/

Immigrants & their attys cannot fill this form out. They can beg or nag law enforcement to redo all their forms, manually writing "N/A" everywhere, but police depts may have other priorities. And harder to get forms re-signed during a pandemic, too, with everyone working remotely

Separately, at least 2 attorneys have gotten denials b/c of blanks on medical reports filled out as part of green card applications. These also are signed by 3rd parties: USCIS-certified doctors. They're submitted in sealed envelope. Immigrant can't check to make sure no blanks

For instance, there is a *lot* of stigma and destructive gatekeeping in diabetes care. Insulin use is heavily stigmatized for people who are seen as having the capacity to avoid it with diet and exercise. …which is exactly the attitude being objected to in mental healthcare.

USCIS has not posted any alerts about no-blanks policy applying to medical forms. Unclear if these denials are due to one isolated, rogue official or some unannounced new policy. USCIS did not answer my question about this, basically saying just read the instructions on the forms

How are  @Tucker Carlson and  @Sean Hannity back from their sexual harassment vacations with no questions asked? Is it just all cool now because they caught a tan? Don’t let this go. STAY LOUD.  #FuckTucker

One of the funniest things Betty White ever said was on Oprah. Oprah asked her at your age what are some things you would still like to do. And Betty said, "Robert Redford." Betty won't clutch no pearls. None.

The fact that Republicans took away $600 a week in unemployment benefits for 30 million Americans while 467 billionaires made $730 billion during a global pandemic is the real looting in America that we must end.  #MakeBillionairesPay

Every time an American media outlet quotes this guy they should mention beforehand that Kevin’s attempt to run in Canadian politics forced him to go on a begging tour to pay his own bills afterwards, and even then, no one wanted to help him out with that

I was watching someone being really sloppy with race and I couldn't figure out what was going on. Then I learned that they don't actually study race or racism. They just have an advanced degree. A degree does not mean studied expert in all fields.

Happy Birthday to my life-long mentor and the first person who put me on a big stage, Garrison Keillor. He has a novel and a memoir coming out this fall!

Context: ⟹ Rapid tests like the one required by White House produce more false positives (3%). ⟹ Positives for rapid tests aren't counted among Ohio's case load. ⟹ Positive cases require PCR results, which are specific to SARS-CoV-2 genetics. https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2020/08/07/how-did-ohio-gov-mike-dewine-test-negative-and-posi...

Donald puts ketchup on overcooked steaks. He is not cosmopolitan. Donald got into undergrad Wharton as a transfer student who cheated on his SATs. One of his professors said he was the dumbest student he ever tried to teach. Donald is not a billionaire. Or he'd show his taxes.

President Trump called Arizona “a model for applying a science-based approach to the decreasing cases and hospitalizations without implementing a punishing lockdown.” He said Governor Ducey’s approach should be used by other states—but here’s what’s really happening in Arizona:

So we need to do what we know works. We flood the Polls. We check our registrations monthly On Your States Website. We talk to everyone we know and ask they do the same. We take this back. We leave no doubt.

Ok folks, WTH. I'll share relevant pieces I've written on the NRA today. I mean, I've written about every corrupt, crazy, white-nationalist aspect of US gun culture. But I'll keep it to the NRA. So between doing work, maybe 50 pieces I've written over the past 2 decades

So far, the US has lost a net 6.045 million jobs so far during Trump’s term. In at least the last 55 years, the US has never had a net loss of jobs in the span of a four-year Predidential term. To avoid becoming the first, Trump would need 6.045 million jobs added by January.

Dear  @MSNBC, Congratulations. You should all give yourselves a pat on the back. You have successfully managed to turn the VP race into a race war.
