Baltimore City schools have 79k students. System has 19k Chromebooks. This isn't going well https://t.co/O0XFOuNmuD

The last time NYC had zero coronavirus deaths was March 11. And we did it again today. We have a long, long way to go in this fight. But this is an extraordinary achievement. Keep it up. https://t.co/fKf31TOqBp

thinking a lot about how I could not go to my mother's funeral but some people just have to go to Disney World

Disastrously embarrassing performance by DeVos this morning. https://t.co/4ZGSpRwItK

Gregg Popovich gave an interview yesterday where he didn’t say much about basketball but said a lot about racial injustice and recommended reading @nhannahjones article about reparations. Here’s the article. I read it, and you should too. https://t.co/uXwrmSbI6S

Trumps campaign appears to believe he has won the election by putting on a mask, which raises the question of why they resisted this tactically brilliant political move until after 133k deaths https://t.co/FHStWnVDLS

Racial disparities seen in how doctors treat pain, even among children https://t.co/3Hc549Wiho

“Lorna kept saying, ‘I think everybody knows I’m struggling’....She was so embarrassed.” This story will haunt me for a long, long time. Told with @corinaknoll, @mrothfeld, and edited by @kirstendanis. https://t.co/Vw7wtwfMIH

This is one of the most cogent arguments I’ve seen for defunding police depts and makes a powerful statement about the immorality of paying police and teachers who don’t live in the cities they serve: City budgets in places with poor schools, services, fund the suburban good life https://t.co/8htZztQBoC

Completely on point. Black cities fund white suburbia through police, teachers, and city employees who live outside of the cities they’re employed in. Black people literally fund the white suburban tax base this way. https://t.co/1LYVvFcUGH

Read this letter to the editor today from Coalition member @ChiAppleseed's @staudt_sarah: "There is simply no evidence that bond reform has caused crime. Bond reform has been immensely successful in beginning to ... strengthen our communities." https://t.co/s8dvlVmzAL

"Books where ‘race is a factor’ are almost all inevitably about people of color. To cite the race of characters in those books and no others posits whiteness as ‘normal,’ with every other race seen as a deviation." Must-read on mentioning race in professional book reviews. 🔥 https://t.co/a5utn1WkEl

Roger Stone's commutation is corrupt. Full stop. It's worth remembering what he did, and why it was right and necessary to investigate the Trump campaign's attempts to cooperate and/or collude with Russians and Russian assets to gain an advantage in the 2016 election. /1

I've been revisiting a lot of history about 1960s urban unrest — and kept coming back to the thought that some of those scarred neighborhoods are the sites today of gentrification fights. In these places, disinvestment cleared the land for reinvestment. https://t.co/6s7EhnVZox

My sis @austinchanning BEEN had something to say. Glad so many more of ya'll are listening now. https://t.co/JWFr7EXBSY

“I, for one, am not leaving him in charge of whether my kid goes back to school," @NicolleDWallace says after President Trump threatens to “cut off” funding if schools do not reopen this fall. "It’s an unbelievable new turn for him.” https://t.co/7tri7gmatq
