I'm honestly trying to figure out what health insurance folks have that's so great they're fearful of trading it for universal healthcare because everybody I know including myself is paying a lot of money for monthly premiums on plans that barely cover anything

Please don't ever forget that while the welcomes, with open arms, a white man who poisoned Black children, a few years ago rescinded the admission of a Black woman who was formerly incarcerated. That's what systemic racism looks like.

Gotta love the rich irony of people who fondly recount stories of how their family’s last names were changed on Ellis Island after their relatives snuck onto a boat escaping some horror now taking fervent anti-immigrant stances & branding innocent human beings as “illegal.”

Human beings have been migrating across the globe for at least 200,000 years. It's a natural behavior driven by realities like climate change & conflict. To think you can simply criminalize human migration & border crossings w/o creating an exponentially worse crisis is not smart

“Confronting misogyny, hatred of the feminine, as an issue within our community and within ourselves will enable us to embrace the idea that violence against women is unacceptable. Only then will be able to include all women.”

Again, people are doing what they can everywhere. So many people we can be supporting, work we can be undertaking ourselves. We can offer constructive support. Let others pontificate. Let's all take action how we can within our capacity.
