This is bad. ICE just told students here on student visas that if their school is going online-only this fall, the students must depart the United States and cannot remain through the fall semester. https://t.co/8DteVzexLB https://t.co/OfkWRKFZZE
just so unnecessarily evil there's no reason at all for this abolish ICE https://t.co/Uyn67MNuLI
WNBA star Maya Moore sat out the entire season last year and helped overturn the conviction of Jonathan Irons, who was serving a 50-year prison sentence. He was finally released today. (via @MooreMaya) https://t.co/fUWEEFP1nz
People need to understand how huge this is. Maya Moore is one of the most decorated basketball players of all time and she halted her career IN HER PRIME to right an injustice. This is just amazing. https://t.co/y51FROlLZP
Something I never thought I'd see: Brahmin managers harassing and discriminating against employees they consider from a lower caste — IN SILICON VALLEY https://t.co/IeiDwMzBLi
Something, as Dalits, we’ve known all along. It was just quieter. The diaspora needs to recognize that caste discrimination didn’t disappear just because they left. UC Indians carried, nurtured and sowed caste for it to become a global pandemic. And now its roots are showing. https://t.co/PkoXh72Yv0
"They lied to our faces every single day." This press conference has been hard to watch. Fort Hood soldier Vanessa Guillen's family has such raw emotion after the heartbreaking developments over the last 24 hours. #whereisvanessaguillen https://t.co/0CsOK5jUq1 https://t.co/40ATVGdhe7
This story has just been devastating. #VanessaGuillen should have been believed & protected and when she went missing, every thing should have stopped til she was found. My heart goes out to this family. There must be justice, including a full investigation of this base. https://t.co/xhwZe1AMO2
46 years ago today, my paternal grandmother, Alberta Williams King (to my father’s right), was shot & killed while she sat at the organ in Ebenezer Baptist Church. I’ve experienced too much tragedy to give up now. We can build a more just, equitable, humane & peaceful world. https://t.co/FbToTtvnsv
Colin Kaepernick's teenage years will be the subject of a 6-episode Netflix series from Ava DuVernay https://t.co/Ez71TnKRbh
Behind millions of successful men is an abortion they don’t regret getting with their partner. I urge men to go beyond solidarity and talk about how they’ve personally benefited from abortion rights too. Not because it’s the right thing you to do, because it’s true!
Dear men! Today is a great day to speak publicly about how you have personally benefited from the abortion rights that women have been expected to fight for. https://t.co/DS0zcLr6Om
Nunavut has the highest suicide rate in the country with extremely limited mental health services. Often waiting lists are months long or there isn’t any mental health professional in communities consistently. Spread this awareness, Nunavummiut and Inuit deserve adequate services https://t.co/rbZyxkiBmK
#COVID19 has reached the Family Detention Centers. I repeat. COVID has spread to detention centers that imprison ENTIRE families. You might be thinking, "wait, there's family detention centers?" Yes. They are owned by private prison companies. Average age of kids? 4 year olds.
If ever you were unsure of corporate insincerity and the utter uselessness of symbolism, it’s this: STILL selling skin lightening creams BUT changing the name and hoping you won’t notice that the business of skin whitening remains the same. @Unilever
This #SCOTUS decision is personal. My family is Sri Lankan Tamil and fled persecution. My heart breaks for this man, whose "mistake" was seeking protection at a time when our laws are abused to send people back into danger, rather than used to uphold our highest ideals of refuge. https://t.co/9Z6KciLH3l
