This man doesn’t look like any civil rights protestor I have ever seen. Looks like a provocateur. Can anyone ID him? “Suspicious Man Breaks Window & Starts Minneapolis Riots” - YouTube

When George Floyd was tragically killed, National conversation focused on justice for him, systematic change. Focus must return to where it belongs; distracting conduct must cease; Police must restrain their response. Protesters need to center #JusticeForFloyd 

ICYMI: . Murder in the Third degree has a 25 year statutory maximum and a guides range of 12.5 to 15 years.

Neighbors coming together to clean and rebuild Lake Street. Thanks so much.

Mercado Central is a wonderful small business center built by mostly immigrants and POC entrepreneurs. They battered but not broken. They coming back and building up.

@JXTA_ARTS ⁩ is where my kids, including Councilmember Jeremiah Ellison, @jeremiah4north ⁩ learned art. Sad about damage it sustained in the wake of #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd  protests. Center for arts education for northside kids and beyond. Let’s help them rebuild.

ICYMI. White nationalist group posing as antifa called for violence on Twitter


It's not just that @realdonaldtrump  fired the Attorney General. It's that he fired her for refusing to violate the Constitution.

The Pell Grant program, which helps low-income students afford college loses $3.9 billion in funding.

The war on drugs didn’t stop drug usage; it just ruined a lot of lives. Jeff Sessions is reviving it because he believes in using the criminal justice system as an instrument of racial and economic control of poor people and brown people.

Anyone who supports a bill allowing ISPs to sell your browsing history ought to release their own browsing history first. It's only fair.

“Kimberly-Clark, maker of paper products like Kleenex, Viva paper towels, Cottonelle bathroom tissue and Huggies diapers, announced earlier this month it would use its tax cut windfall to pay the costs of closing 10 factories and dumping as many as 5,500 workers.”

Haircuts for women cost more than those for men. Also health care, car repairs, etc. That’s reality for the awesome @Ocasio2018  and every other woman. It’s morally wrong and it threatens the economic security of women and everyone who depends on her income. It’s the "pink tax”.

Don't gloat; get ready for round 2. Organize!

Trickle down economics is a proven fraud. When you give the wealthiest few a big tax cut, they do 3 things with that money: 1) Give each other bonuses 2) Engage in mega-mergers to concentrate more wealth at the top 3) Spend even more money buying political influence
