When 2 Americans died of Ebola the GOP demanded Obama resign. We’re now suffering a 9/11 a day in COVID19 deaths & the GOP praises Trump. It was never about liberty, being pro life, or protecting law & order. It was always about power, racism, & control.

Pretty sad how much people have been conditioned to believe that not getting crushed by costs of healthcare, housing, education, and low wages is either “radical left politics” or “nice but unrealistic”

These COVID negotiations should be public. The public should be able to see who is holding stimulus checks hostage & demanding immunity for big corporations exposing workers to COVID. The secrecy protects them. It’s harder to do these things without the closed door.

It'll never make it past the Senate; they should've waited to do this post-runoffs (assuming Democrats win) and post-turnover to the newly electeds. Nice to see them trying, tho.

I can't believe the way that the liberal/progressive/moderate folks in the United States always cede arguments to the right. I've seen it all my life. You all never shift the Overton window in the opposite direction.

Those calls exist *because BIPoC are underrepresented.* And since white writers still make up roughly 80% (massive overrepresentation) of debuts and those calls have existed for yrs, clearly they aren't making it much harder for white writers to break in.

And I can send it to my BFF without worrying she'll be mad that I put the idea in her kids' heads. "Y'all are Christian, so you can't get a puppy for Hannukah, pipe down!"

I have them blocked so didn't see their Hampton nonsense, and I'm not gonna look because I value my currently-good blood pressure. But what/who is CTH? DM if you'd rather.

...But I'm guessing anybody who has leaped to this conclusion is not interested in facts, or they wouldn't have fixed their mouth to say it without backup anyway.

I would've responded with just bare stats. Whatever anecdotal evidence that person is seeing in their personal circle isn't borne out by anything -- debuts published, marketing budgets, cover art, advances... just... nothing.
