Don't remember a single multiracial role model in my childhood. That would have been so different.

I didn’t have any multiracial role models until college.

I am multiracial, first generation graduate, a child of an immigrant.

I can attest to how hard it can be the first and none of us should have to be the sole bearer of all the intersections of these burdens.

Quoted @etengastro

am I working at my regular capacity? no. but am I prioritizing and taking care of the most important tasks? no. but am I at least taking care of myself and my mental health? also no.

Our situation isn’t normal. Let’s stop treating it like it is.

The number of times I see men presenting hipsters walking around without a masking NEAR others so so infuriating.

So what if your beard is perfectly manicured, I don’t want to see it. we’re still in a f’ing #pandemic.

"Economic growth accompanied by worsening social outcomes is not success. It is failure." - Jacinda Ardern

People have been pointing to their stocks increasing in value.

This IS NOT insight to the success of a nation when social outcomes are not increasing.

THIS points to people benefiting off of the suffering of others.

I just quit working for Xfinity/Comcast. I want families to know that the special Essentials program they offer to low income households for 9.95/mo is only 25mbps and in almost every case, not an adequate speed for children to do their live “zoom” online class work.

The internet is essential for learning right now. We need to take this into consideration.

In 1923, Adolf Hitler led a failed coup. He was treated leniently. Germany moved on.
A decade later, he was dictator, and the worst disaster in the history of the civilized world ensued.
In 2021, when the president of the United States leads a failed coup, we must not move on.
