Like, people really need to watch more @rolandsmartin. Half the time I'm on his show I quickly find myself on the "whoa whoa whoa, Can We Still Haz Society?" side of the argument.

The funny thing about white center-left people getting up my ass on this bird app is that actual Black radicals (and white ones too) can smell the "Incrementalist Negro still stupid enough to think the system can be changed rather than obliterated" wafting off me from a mile away

@jaywillis Meh. It's hard to keep track of what whites are pissed at me for on any given day. I can literally say "Middle Earth should include people of color" and get some segment of white folks "well actually"-ing me.

I've said this for a while. Sotomayor is who people though RGB was.

I’m increasingly convinced that Sonia Sotomayor actually is what everyone memed RBG to be while she sat on the Court.

I guess I also have to be ready for white data bros to call me a liar for characterizing the way SCOTUS plans to take away abortion rights... but that's something I can more or less handle. :)

What people *have to* be ready for is the Court finding technical grounds to eventually stop the bonkers bounty system in SB8, but giving forced birth advocates what they want in Dobbs, and then some idiot MSM person trying to both sides the thing, claiming they "split the baby"

There are a lot of sides to the SCOTUS ruling to look at jurisdiction in SB8. But the main upshot is that SB8 remains in place until SCOTUS rules (which is the wrong legal call) and they're still set up to overturn abortion in Dobbs not SB8

Today at @atlblog "Elie, have you written a post on the 3D gun thing?" "No." "Do you have an opinion?" "We're all gonna die." "Right, but what's your legal angle?" "We're all going to die in a homicide."

I don't think it's maliciously done. But this is a small little example of why we fail. Trump was not NORMAL. It DOESN'T cut both ways. Trump was a lawless authoritarian propped up by evil people looking to do harm Ain't nothing "much as" about anybody else this side of Mussolini

So in this little false equivalency story, what we have is the WSJ (b/c of course) equating red state AGs and one absolutely radical circuit against Biden, with the main of legal thought against Trump.

This is the kind of thing that doesn't *seem* biased... until you remember that Trump was sued (and lost) in the 2nd, 4th, and 7th Circuit not JUST the 9th. AND he was sued not just by crusading AGs, but organizations that could show harm from his policies.

The Fifth Circuit promises to be a legal battleground for the Biden administration, much as the Ninth Circuit was for Trump.

One of the most powerful pieces you’ll ever read on police impunity and how one ‘bad cop,’ who knows how to play the game, can taint an entire department and the profession itself. Stellar, must-read work here by @politico’s @MarcACaputo. Please share.👇🏼

Finally got around to reading @michaelharriot's excellent retrospective on Colin Powell which I had heard so much about, and... it is excellent. It does all the things. If you're black and you have to die, get Harriot to explain you to people.

After reading this I'm pretty sure that Politico should change its tagline to "Politico: What the fuck are we doing?"
