Hilarious moment today when this painfully obvious out-of-towner tried to explain to a local Newark black girl who Marx and Lenin are
So the story is false (part of the shirt was covered by his strap so the girl was just asking for clarity) but what's a non-racist way to take, "LOL, of course this local BLACK girl had no idea who Marx is."
.@CNN reporter on Lafayette Square says on air that a DC police officer struck the CNN cameraman with a baton, even though the cameraman was holding, um, a camera and a credential. These incidents keep piling up.
Maybe some of you are starting to learn that US police are violent, lawless, and completely out of control?
@BethLynch2020 That kinda seems like it would have the opposite effect... don't people get more agitated when they fear for their children?
Consider it like any other sanction we use around the world. The intent is to factionalize. Some will become angrier with the government, some will become angry with the protests.
Depends on who controls the narrative..and we know who controls it.
Protesters won't be "targeting" schools or children, that's complete bullshit. But, it's refreshing to know that Dem politicians are willing to starve children in poorer neighborhoods, while funneling endless money and resources into protecting the TJ Maxx instead.
There will never be an "acceptable" form of protest.
That’s a game to keep you frantically worried — trying to never upset the system for fear you won’t get what you're fighting for.
Truth is, you will never get what you're fighting for UNLESS you upset the system.
So I was out at the Brooklyn George Floyd protest tonight and it was beautiful and powerful... until it wasn’t. And I saw it fall apart.
Apparently the cops turned on the protestors right after staging a photo-op of cops kneeling. The police know their job is to repress, do you?
After putting Supervisor Ryan Clancy in wagon, they are debating charging him with violation of curfew. They have now chased me back to press group. Clancy, by being an elected official, can’t violate curfew
The police just arrested the Milwaukee County Supervisor even though he is a government employee and is exempt from following the curfew.
The city’s curfew cannot be used as a license to make unlawful arrests.
@BethLynch2020 Email lori.lightfoot[at]cityofchicago[dot]org to demand she reverse this decision.
CPS meal distribution can continue safely and unabated in our neighborhoods. Chicago's working poor families rely on those meals. Ending CPS meal distribution is monstrous and inexcusable.
