"White Lives Matter" is supposedly holding rallies across the U.S. on Sunday. But it's an absolute shit show at White Lives Matter's HQ (on Telegram) which has been plagued by paranoia, infighting and "optics" disputes from the get-go https://t.co/TnCPoHkFA2

If you want to understand how bans like Arkansas' will impact trans kids, my colleague @DanMing talked to teens in Alabama about the proposed health care ban there. "We're just people trying to live our best lives, just like everyone else is," one said. https://t.co/PGxrzjrt4J

Today is Day Six of the #ChauvinTrial. We left off last Friday with testimony from high-ranking members of the Minneapolis police. We will likely hear more from Chauvin's former colleagues today. https://t.co/NkQ45XNc8a

If you send me April Fools pitches I will block you. I'm not a fun person and I don't want to be mistaken for one, either.

(a short thread) This is my most recent piece for @vicenews, about allegations of abuse in facilities that claim to help troubled teens. Most of the comments are people sharing that they, too, were in these facilities and suffered abuse. https://t.co/3GXRL7Nm22
