Latest @EdgeOfSportsPOD: talking to @JulieDiCaro about her new book "Sidelined: Sports, Culture, and Being a Woman in America", a book that seems to be upsetting all the right people. thenation.com/podcast/societ…

It is such a damning thing that as the quarantine lifts, mass shootings have come back quickly.

Many of the Founding Fathers were extremely elitist drunks and rapists who thought black people weren’t human, phrenology was science, and that bloodletting cured sore throats. One would hope we’ve progressed a bit both morally and intellectually these last couple of centuries. twitter.com/SenatorRounds/…
The Founding Fathers never intended for me to be free. twitter.com/senatorrounds/…

The founders were not a corporate mind that could intend anything. Anyway, what we *say* they intended only matters to the extent that we care about it. It would be better if we'd just cut out the incoherent extra step and just say what we want and the real reasons we want it.

The founders never intended for you to care about what they intended.

I also learned in writing #fightingvisibility that when you are writing the 1st academic book on a topic, you feel pressure to cover everything. This is an impossible feat. Things have to be left out to have a clear, supported argument &other folks must continue the conversation twitter.com/lportwoodstace…

The history of internment camps are crazy. My family was sent to one in Arizona and lost everything, including their large farm in Cali. This only happened less than 80 years ago. I remember being shocked that my high school history book literally only had one sentence about it. twitter.com/latimes/status…

...remembering a time when people on twitter vehemently defended Ben Askren’s headlock victory...
I’m not sure who is actually claiming no one opposed the Iraq War but we got gaslit through this the first time around and we are definitely not doing it again

🤦🏼‍♀️ this tweet is so cringe. Maybe instead of trying to cheer “heyyyy! Check out this awesome weight room we got pressured into making for you!! Wooo!!! Fun!” you start with “Ladies, we really screwed this one up.” Condescension on top of disrespect ...I can’ttwitter.com/ncaawbb/status…ql

"There was a time," Alvin Sykes once said, "when somebody like me wouldn’t have been allowed inside a library – or as a black man, permitted to read at all." Alvin Sykes was a devoted human rights activist and we were honored to know and work with him. ow.ly/IaQU50E3PfD

when you hear chuds argue against critical theory or intersectionality, all they're saying is they don't want you to connect these dots.

this is good and focuses on the packaging of misogyny in evangelical groups and rhetoric. it's also worth noting the rise in anti-asian rhetoric and hate crime is tied to white christian evangelicals, and there's academic study to show it tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.10… twitter.com/stevesilberman…

Hi, never mind the fact that this shell account is a really sad, self-incriminating attempt at claiming some kind of intellectual status in MMA—so you’ve clearly failed at it before, huh? —his questionable decisions are *indicative* of a culture of desperation, not *in spite of.* twitter.com/N00bSa1b0t/sta…
Heard about this recently. FYI to the fighters out there. twitter.com/NateRockQuarry…

Amazes me how many white evangelical Christians in America read the parables of Jesus and don’t realize that they’re the bad guys.

This is a test of our values as a nation. We have a chance to restore hope for the little girls and boys who dream of a life of opportunity and stability in the United States of America. I should know. I was one.

We also have a responsibility to talk honestly about the violence people face in these countries—and not fan the flames of racist Republican rhetoric portraying migrants as criminals.
Retweeted by Julie Kedzie
It means protecting the safety of migrants who are forced to flee—and giving them a rigorous and fair path to citizenship
Retweeted by Julie Kedzie
That means ending a cruel foreign policy that arms the very state actors who are fueling the migration crisis. It means investing in civil society groups and multilateral entities that can bring stability to the region cepr.net/the-trump-admi…
