Can we now give all that free stuff that was being promised and offered to Kawhi to Toronto’s impoverished Black, Indigenous and/or racialized individuals and families? Yes, the multimillion dollar penthouse too...

Let's be clear and blunt . There was clear evidence of vote suppression targeted at non-Conservative voters in 2011. There is an excellent chance this produced the surprising CPC majority that no one predicted . This unpunished travesty altered national direction . Pay attention

Trump spent millions on a poorly attended, 1 day parade days after saying he couldn’t afford toothpaste & soap for caged children. Did he ask Congress for military parade💰? No. Trump held these kids hostage to secure billions for their abusers. Congress needs to see that.

Rami Malek rejects playing an Arab terrorist in the new Bond film. This brand of A-list leadership is what will gradually erode Hollywood’s demonization of Muslims and Arabs. Salute.

Compassion is concern for others—sincere concern for others’ well-being founded on awareness of our own experience. Since it makes us happy when others show us affection and offer us help, if we show others affection and readiness to help they too will feel joy.

When members of Congress asked CBP if they knew about violently racist & sexually disturbing secret Facebook group w up to 10,000 CBP officers, they told us they just learned about it. Looks like CBP lied. Reporting shows they knew about it for *years.* This is a big deal. ⬇️

The right is responding to what’s been exposed at the border by denying it & saying I’m lying. Hard to assert when the details I shared are corroborated by other members of Congress, court documents, migrant testimony, and now photos released today by the Inspector General.

There are 20,000 TOTAL Customs & Border Patrol agents in the US. 9,500 - almost HALF that number - are in a racist & sexually violent secret CBP Facebook group. They’re threatening violence on members of Congress. How do you think they’re treating caged children+families?

Kamala Harris was born in Oakland. Her mother was Tamil Indian; her father was born in Jamaica. Birtherism is racism, full stop. You don’t need to support Harris for the Presidency. But if you are black and buying into this, you are aiding and abetting.

Today was day one at a Deep Diversity Leadership 3-day training, facilitated by and . Lots of learning and discussion in the room, including (what I used to call in grad school) "productive discomfort." Interested in what's to come for day two.

If any of us as individuals publicly alleged the things this police department has against Ujiri and we kept changing our story, we’d probably be facing the serious prospect of being sued for defamation and/or criminal charges for falsely reporting a crime
