Hey y’all! We did it. By now I’m sure you heard that #EdBuck was sentenced to 30 years in prison. There’s so much I wanna say, so many people to thank you. Lots of emotions right now. Imma start with a drink and get back to you later. For now thank you everyone! ❤️❤️❤️

I was sad to learn of the passing of Apache activist and actress Sacheen Cruz Littlefeather yesterday. I took some time to dig through my archives and upload my 2016 interview with her for @KPFK about the lack of diversity in Oscar nominees.

I think a harder question might have been—- only one of them can stay. Who is it gonna be? 🤣🤣🤣

I am absolutely convinced this 💩 pops up on our timelines to distract us from what we should really be concerned with and talking about.

Wishing Monica and her son the best as they start this new chapter of their lives just in time for the fall and winter holidays! Now if we can just get all of the other folks out of motels and off the streets and into permanent housing.

Many of you contacted me directly about Monica’s situation and donated to the Go Fund Me set up to help her pay for that motel room she was living in. Thank you. She thanks you, and I thank you. It always feels great to revisit a situation and give a positive update.

I went by there Saturday evening and brought a bunch of stuff for them. As you can imagine, they’re moving in with very little but the clothes on their backs.

I love good updates! I have an update on Monica, the homeless mother I profiled in June who was engaging in survival sex work to pay for the daily rent at a motel in #SouthLA . On Friday, Monica and her son moved into a 1-bedroom apartment in South LA!

I don't want to lock them all up, but I don't want to let them all out either. I'm in the middle of two extremes. I also care about the victims of these crimes--many of whom are Black-- who I often think are forgotten in the debate.

I fully understand that my opinion is not going to be popular among my abolitionist friends but I am not an abolitionist, I am a reductionist. I also don't romanticize Black people and the reasons they commit crimes.

In the court of public opinion, I take all of these situations on a case-by-case basis. I cannot apply a blanket policy to all. Looking at what's been presented so far about this heinous and brazen murder doesn't make me want to go easy on the son, the dad, or the stepmom.
