Vincent Chin was murdered 39 yrs ago today. His death ignited Asian American activism & interracial coalitions including support from @RevJJackson. I spoke to @chinatowncdc's @FongNorman about Asian/Black solidarity as anti-Asian violence continues. https://t.co/t8OvDmlviC

ICYMI: "I think what we saw this evening is the outgrowth of pervasive misinformation," one JCPS board member said after anti-CRT protesters derailed last night's school board meeting. Some hear "equity," he said, and hear "a threat to their existence." https://t.co/nMJgwQuHD8

I heard a lot tonight about “failing” schools, which skew high-poverty, predominantly Black. Also, a lot of opposition to providing equitable resources to those students to improve the “failing” schools. But no alternative solutions. So what are we trying to do here?

I can't stop thinking about the mom who told me her five kids have skipped meals & cried from hunger this past year — meanwhile the family is STILL waiting for thousands of dollars in pandemic food benefits it's owed. https://t.co/BZ9726xt7Q

I am coming to you live from a Brandon, Mississippi Waffle House. I, a total loser, came in last place in my fantasy football league. As punishment, I spend 24 hours in a Waffle House. Every waffle I eat shaves an hour off the clock. It’s 4:07 Central. https://t.co/oRugzU7rQT

The next album that I’ll be releasing is my version of Red, which will be out on November 19. This will be the first time you hear all 30 songs that were meant to go on Red. And hey, one of them is even ten minutes long🧣 https://t.co/FOBLS5aHpS https://t.co/6zWa64Owgp

ps. I know it’s #Pride, & I know it’s Juneteenth, & I know we’re talking about inclusion of Afro-Latinas & hate against Asians, but don’t tell journalists they need a time peg for reporting on marginalized communities. I hope that stops beyond this yr These are anytime stories

“Support Black excellence and happiness with the same vigor that you support protesting Black tragedy and trauma." Spoke with local activists and leaders about Juneteenth this year as many host their first large-scale celebrations. Listen here: https://t.co/DxzpCJvK6x

Gems: -Hire people. But when you do, expand your networks. Don't go to the same places. -Grow your talent. Many people don't check all the boxes but they can grow if you invest in them. -Look at the whole person. "I'm a Black man," @nixonron said. But he's much more than that.

Watching @nixonron deliver the keynote for #IRE21. Noting that newsroom investigative teams still lack diversity, he encouraged newsrooms to focus on PHG: Promote, Hire and Grow. "Promote people internally. There are people of color at your orgs who want to do this type of work." https://t.co/JRw0WtfQak

.@nixonron's keynote speech hit on so many impt things. i'm going to be thinking about this part for a while -- that investigative journalists are relentless to get some elusive document, so why aren't we relentless when it comes to finding and lifting up journalists of color? https://t.co/WSGQ27mZNu
