I’ll see this, and raise you “professor slowly realizes she’s somehow lost all her students in the process of sending them to breakout rooms... while Zoom was recording it all...” https://t.co/KTRWU0srMj https://t.co/9HPFskdelS

Quoted @therecount

Florida passed a law, upheld by circuit court, forcing people convicted of felonies to pay court debts before they can vote. Mike Bloomberg has been paying off some of those fines for Floridians. Now, Florida Atty Gen. Ashley Moody says that may be illegal and will investigate https://t.co/iYJ9bPsyE0

Florida Rs have resisted the term "poll tax" for this law, but in the days of the poll tax, parties would often pay the tax for poor voters. Texas had a poll tax until 1966; prior to that, Democrats would pay Hispanic voters' fees to turn them out. https://t.co/RmuRVjoKNN

In a sane, functioning society an authoritarian criminal president admitting he’ll refuse to abdicate power on live television would set off every alarm and be the only story anyone talked about.

Quoted @jacobeiscool

America would rather have a civil war than be fair and just to black people. LMFAOOOOOO

Historian here: Can confirm. #twitterstorians https://t.co/3vtEpAXgCQ

Am I really gonna have to ask on an emergency podcast tomorrow if democracy polls well in America?

Four years ago, we celebrated the opening of @NMAAHC, a dream 100 years in the making. We started with no site, no building, no collections, and no money and, together, created a place that matters, a place that depicts a fuller picture of what it means to be American. https://t.co/mnxuIJqnx8

AHA considers “White House Conference on American History" ill-informed, a disservice to history as a discipline, history education, & the nation. To learn from the past we must confront it. A history classroom is an arena for evidence-based exploration.https://t.co/uUMF1TfBvI

Fifty years ago this week, a group of NYU students and local LGBTQ+ activists staged a sit-in at the Weinstein Residence Hall subbasement for five days in protest of the University’s cancellation of an LGBTQ+ dance.

"To be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious is to be in a state of rage almost all of the time." James Baldwin. #BreonnaTaylor https://t.co/CUcRcEsXCE

Still don’t understand this Californian obsession with boysenberry 🤷🏽‍♂️

"To be born into a world that does not see you," Rabbi Lauren Holtzblatt says of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, "and despite this, to be able to see beyond the world you are in, to imagine that something can be different—that is the job of a prophet." https://t.co/enplZrT4gQ https://t.co/VSrWet3kH0

Ok, now it's just getting ridiculous. https://t.co/iTYarMYkkC https://t.co/lHNKFoQgrK

The sobs. That’s what’s sticking with me here in Louisville as I see the reaction to the Breonna Taylor announcement. I’ve covered a lot of these but I don’t remember ever seeing this much hurt, this much crying from protesters.
