I created a lot this year, much of it dealing with issues of money, labor politics, racism, big data, criminalization, and abolition. Here's a recap.

Linking healthcare to your employer is terribly inefficient (and immoral). Healthcare is a right. We need Medicare For All.

Excited to share more about some work I did with @louise_seamster at ECU! I think it’s particularly applicable to infrastructure challenges facing various Black places in Eastern/Southeastern NC. https://t.co/1OBdEyiPrK

A long time ago I decided I would not state my views hiding behind the claim I was doing so in deference to “the community,” activists, or what a citation said. While I note this work, to recognize we are speaking for ourselves was, for me, more courageous and politically honest.

We were obviously free to loathe each other's work. But no one played into the "who is best." There was this marvelous absence of competition among us. –– Toni Morrison

Just cuz they critique our work for the wrong reasons doesn't mean we can't try to make it better for the right ones.

When invited, in 2016, to be a member of the Academy, Ryan Coogler declined and remains a nonmember. "If I'm going to be a part of organizations, they're going to be labor unions, where we're figuring out how to take care of each other's families and health insurance."

A senior scholar said collaborating with me was "One of the most supportive experiences in my academic career." My goodness. I'm undone.

There have been 8,000 views of my March 23 @aaww lecture “Anti-Asian Violence and Black-Asian Solidarity Today.” Thank you to everyone who checked it out and told me you and your colleagues and organizations find it a useful resource for thinking through this moment. 🙏🙏
