When my mom died I found this Letter to the Editor among her possessions. She’s calling out John Klein, the Town Supervisor in Smithtown LI, for his racist housing policies. I think it’s from the 1970s. It inspires me to name names, and call out BS. Don’t live afraid. https://t.co/hdyL1zOZL9

Let me be clear: American highways were too often built through Black neighborhoods on purpose—dividing communities, adding pollution, and making pedestrians less safe.

Nonsense. For one, if you can’t tell the difference between a taser and a gun you shouldn’t be a cop. https://t.co/ITRqtKGgFf

it was over an air freshener, and he called his mother because he knew what might happen, and he was just 20, and he was unarmed, and he was a father. it's all heartbreaking. but even if none of these things were true he should not have been killed.

GG: the media must cover Hunter Biden, who has not been charged with anything. It’s censorship when people try to edit my Hunter story! Also GG: Matt Gaetz has not been charged with anything. Coverage of his case is indicative of the decline of journalistic standards https://t.co/JuNAN8544O

This land is whose land? A powerful argument to return U.S. national parks to Native Americans. "All of them were founded on land that was once ours, and many were created only after we were removed, forcibly." https://t.co/evIvma1WD9 @TheAtlantic @DavidTreuer

In elementary school my team lost unfairly in a game of dodgeball because the other side hit our last man standing in the head and I challenged it and our PE teacher said “In a year you won’t remember this game” and I said “What’s the date?” and he said “April 11th.” Here we are.

just noting that STILL nobody has come up with a phrase as an alternative to "defund the police," so when desperate people march in the near future and say it, don't get upset at them when you didnt offer up anything.

People are dunking on this @JohnCornyn tweet and while yes it’s typical bad-faith bullshit, it’s *word for word* copy-pasted from a Politico story trying to make Biden look bad for having a press “strategy” that reporters don’t like because he’s not Trump https://t.co/j6ZNCUxwUq https://t.co/DMqrBGpOnj

@soledadobrien Thank God. I am sick of angry, bigoted, trigger-happy cops. Please take anger management classes and choose another profession not involving people.

"As one of our two major political parties continues to retreat from reality, it is the job of journalists to cling to reality, not some imaginary mid-point between the two parties." @mehdirhasan said that, in my latest post. https://t.co/Tc9YpvgzPK

This is @cwarzel, who went Substack today, on writing for the New York Times. "A huge chunk of my readers on a given story were there because they wanted to use what I’d written — usually just the headline — as ammunition in a culture war battle." https://t.co/tBeDDoG42v
