By kneeling, Colin Kaepernick let us do the work for him. He didn’t need to belabor the point, he just let us show ourselves. He saw something ugly in us that we didn’t and still don’t want to see. And he was right. https://t.co/uDajAlcdXW

Just last week, @GovBillLee chose to weaken Tennessee’s gun laws with the support of the corrupt NRA. THIS is why America has a 25 times higher gun homicide rate than any other high income country. Knoxville #tnleg https://t.co/NIDumvs3nP

I signed constitutional carry today because it shouldn’t be hard for law-abiding Tennesseans to exercise their #2A rights. Thank you members of the General Assembly and @NRA for helping get this done. https://t.co/xv2ZenOEZq

Yeah Republicans, it’s the guns. You can deny it, hide from it, refuse to acknowledge it, and try and distract from it, but that’s simply the truth. And if you won’t admit this and you will not commit to doing anything about it—then yeah, it’s you too. https://t.co/uNwKe0lO1X

Today the NCAA confirmed it will pull events from states with bills banning trans students from participating in school sports. State lawmakers take note: discriminating against trans youth is wrong, against the law, and costly.

We can’t even finish trying one police officer before another murder. It’s not about “one bad apple.” It’s about a culture of death and domination that must be dismantled.

What I like about the link below is that Ted Nugent managed to say something *so stupid* that Snopes had to actually *write a whole article* just to *confirm* this bag of returned anal beads really said it https://t.co/lSKEkqTJvd

Knowing the difference between your taser and your gun is the totality of what you need to know when drawing one of them, and it is literally the difference between life and death. Unacceptable.

The more clear the image of these people’s Heaven becomes, the less and less trepidation I have of my soul’s resting place somewhere outside of it. Receiving their damnation actually begins to feel like dodging a bullet: I’ll be avoiding them. https://t.co/4eV4fhI3v8

I'm tired of waking every morning and seeing that we're in an another unnecessary and preventable Constitutional crisis. I'm tired of having to desperately appeal to public servants to do the decent and humane thing and seeing them again flatly refuse. https://t.co/HxX641yPpk

You've dealt with an unprecedented health crisis that decimated the planet. You've had to alter the way you do just about everything. The level of difficulty of your current life is a few steps above Batman. Give yourself a damn break. https://t.co/Rlvwi4HTER

The majority of police calls would be much better served by having a qualified mental health professional responding than an armed person with limited knowledge of human behavior under stress. We need to talk about this.
