A UNC housekeeper who cleans a dorm with football players in it — their workouts halted because of COVID-19 cases — says four housekeepers have tested positive.

Keep thinking about what @Kat_Stafford said about the Movement for Black Lives's sweeping BREATHE Act on today's Week in the News. The legislative proposals seem impossibly radical -- but so once did the Civil Rights Act.

Now that we have witnessed it on a large scale basis, and firsthand, Virtual Learning has proven to be TERRIBLE compared to In School, or On Campus, Learning. Not even close! Schools must be open in the Fall. If not open, why would the Federal Government give Funding? It won’t!!!

Wow, did not expect a Presidential Tweet calling for defunding virtual charter schools

Listen for @AP Race and Ethnicity Writer @kat__stafford explaining how pandemic, protests are disrupting US electorate on @OnPointRadio 10am ET.

Just a reminder: The rich kids are going back to school no matter what the public schools decide to do. Homeschooling pods. Private tutors. And on and on. The gap will yawn further.

“When you think about it, white people are protecting other white people. They’re always going to look out for their kind before they look out for us.”

Youngest person to die from #COVID19 in Nashville couldn’t afford health insurance. #TNnews

Just saw a $33,000 bill for someone who was admitted to a hospital for coronavirus for three days. She hasn't been able to work for months as a hair dresser and her unemployment is backlogged. Her husband recently got laid off and just started a temp job. $33,000.

It took TN more than 3 weeks to get its first 2,500 cases. And now we've just had nearly 2,500 reported in one day.

The seemingly trivial fact that the number of days in a US school week is prime, rather than divisible by 2 or 3, is wreaking havoc with proposed school re-opening plans.

My mind is blown by the fact that Henrietta Lack’s (HeLa) cells will likely be used in the research and/or development of a #coronavirus vaccine when Black Americans have been among the most disproportionately impacted in this pandemic.

Tune in: @DW_Gibson spent two years investigating how the construction of Trump's wall affects lives on both sides of the border. We hear from him, @luzenlafrontera, @Serge4IBMayor and Stan Rodriguez about this 14-mile stretch on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Quoted @Chalkbeat

Michigan will join a multistate lawsuit against @BetsyDeVosED alleging that she is wrongfully sending millions of dollars in #coronavirus relief to private schools. #education #EdChat #k12

Tennessee isn’t among the states suing over the federal rule, although its schools are affected.

NEW: Prosecutors around the country are asking potential jurors if they support #BlackLivesMatter—and having them removed if they do. A California appeals court will soon determine whether that's legal.

AMERICA DISRUPTED -- The nation is set to choose a leader at a time of extraordinary division, a national reckoning over systemic racism, police brutality, COVID-19 & its economic fallout. One city knows these challenges well: Saginaw, Mich. w/@joshboak

“I guarantee you there were people in that protest who voted for Trump and will not do it again. I was one of them.” My dispatch from SE Michigan, including Detroit (aka, home) and some of its suburbs that went for Trump

After resisting wearing a mask in public, President Trump now says he thinks it makes him look like the Lone Ranger - and he likes it.

Random sad 2020 thought: more people have died of covid-19 than decided the 2016 election
