Bama Tracker: Alabama COVID-19 Jul 31
Cumulative Hospitalizations did not update yesterday. ADPH has only updated it Mon-Weds so far this week and it won't change over the weekend. Their change in reporting methodology has created many delays.

My accent is mostly natural. Though I came back with a very different one after a year abroad. I wish I spoke like my aunt, gorgeously soft round words. Instead, I use words like ain’t when feeling the need to be emphatic.

She felt like her dialect was beautiful. She decided to speak that way even though it meant people thought she was less educated. It was an everyday protest or act of preserving difference and culture.

These are easy assumptions to make. American culture indoctrinates us to think: Southern = dumb whites. I was convinced of it growing up until I was an exchange student and my host mother refused to give up her dialect. That spoke to me.

And yeah, I’m from Alabama have an accent. And I’ve been dismissed for it. I have a trailer park chip on my shoulder, so when you retweeted this, couldn’t let it go. I’m equally tired of the assumption that everything Southern is white. It ain’t.

John Lewis was from the south. I would not ever suggest he was cartoonish in any way. Nor would I call Congresswoman Terri Sewell cartoonish. Or Senator Doug Jones. Shall I go on?
