It’s fun to do political analysis based on vibes rather than facts or policies but the analysis turns out bad.

Flagging Trump tweets because the president won’t stop violating twitter rules? Clear evidence of discrimination. Centuries of discriminatory law, culture and policy? Pull up those bootstraps

@michaelbd  @MattZeitlinWe  haven’t had a regime change in 200 years so maybe we should be discussing the American culture of obedience instead. Maybe generalizing about billions of people is bound to lead to errors so it’s better to refer to countries individually.

An extraordinary piece from @WesleyLowery  on how an extremely prolific serial killer got away with it for so long...by targeting people whose deaths he knew society—and by extension the police—would disregard

DC comics should do a “true crime” style podcast that is just Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne speaking into his recorder in the Batcave

(Yes I realize I just invented Old Time radio)

Corporate liberals are woke capitalists who are marxists. What’s hard to understand? Flowers are mammals which are also minerals.

Some people out here who think police murdering a black 12 year old with a toy gun is justified suddenly get really into forgiveness and grace when a white teen loses his chance go to Harvard.

When they say they’re willing to die for the economy what they mean is they’re willing to let you die for the economy.

Watching the Roy Moore re-endorsements I'm reminded of the many, many times I've seen white people on cable news arguing black culture is excessively tolerant of criminal behavior.

That Chance tweet is an example of a larger problem, which is viewing the presidency as a vessel for your hopes and dreams rather than as a job that requires particular skills/talents/temperament/knowledge to do well

"You don't have freedom of speech at your job", is weird for an admin arguing businesses can refuse gay customers on free speech grounds

I personally saw Ferguson police use crushing force against protesters for much less than what the Nazis in Charlottesville are doing today.

It's telling that resentment towards wealth in sports is always directed at black athletes and not the vastly wealthier franchise owners.
