I just wish we learned more about the Martin Luther King Jr. who criticized capitalism and war as intertwined with white supremacy, the King who was speaking on the picket line to 1,300 Black sanitation workers on strike the day before he was assassinated, from day 1.

“The problem with how we remember King is not just the inaccuracy or the distortion of his politics, but it is also how those distortions are used to pursue or justify regressive policies that King never would have supported.” By ⁦ @KeeangaYamahtta

“I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society.”

As you honor my father today, please remember and honor my mother, as well. She was the architect of the King Legacy and founder of @TheKingCenter , which she founded two months after Daddy was assassinated. Without #CorettaScottKing , there would be no #MLKDay . #MLK

🧵 Family, Tomorrow, there will be people tweeting about my father and #MLKDay who are complicit in, complacent about and/or a part of cultivating some form of injustice. That’s to be expected, and not just regarding voting legislation.

Just read that almost 20% of health care workers have left their jobs since the pandemic started, and that 20% of teachers are planning to leave their jobs. I don't know how we think society can function if we've driving people out of these professions like this.

Make no mistake. Jessica acted out of necessity, without harming or endangering any human or animal life, trying to prevent climate and ecological collapse in our lifetimes. She is the antithesis to terrorism. #FreeJessicaReznicek #DontLookUp

At 1.2°C of global warming, with current pace, we will hit 1.5°C in 2033 and 2°C by 2060. With last 7 years being warmest on record, 2021 among them, we have strong confirmation of the global climate crisis as shown in excellent analysis by @BerkeleyEarth

Billionaires have gotten $5 trillion richer during the pandemic, so far. If you aren't one of them, and you aren't more anti-capitalism than you were when this thing started, you confuse me.
