Watching the ease of critique and breathless blame. I’ve a diff experience of what can happen when desperation meets dread, despair, and hopelessness. But carry on. It certainly does distinguish us from the judged, in case one wants for that space. But for the grace….

Devastating news. If you haven’t read Julius Scott’s ‘THE COMMON WIND: Afro-American Currents in the Age of the Haitian Revolution,’ you must make the time to do so. A brilliant scholar. #RIP
Honoring the brilliant and kind Julius Scott, who passed away this morning.

Heartsick. Not only b/c of justice denied, again; but b/c Tyson’s “evidence” was held until it cld serve the marketing for his book instead of sharing the alleged interview when it happened. @CharlesMBlow @BNCNews #EmmettTill

Today @rofhiwabooks, 6:30 pm. If you’re in Durham Raleigh Chapel Hill and wonder if she fell, jumped, or had a bit of an assist out that window, @profblmkelley and I will consider the books, the film, and where my debut novel #ADeathinHarlem found its fiction! @NorthwesternUP

#vilomah. A parent whose child has died. Each day membership in this congregation of sorrow grows. #oxfordhighschool
Replying to @B52Malmet
Vilomah is a word gaining acceptance to describe a parent who has lost a child.

Banning Black African countries with no #Omicron variant #COVID19 cases w/out banning travel from European countries w/documented cases is exactly how racial disparities operate. It’s a lesson in how & why we lose trust in “leadership” and undermines #Fauci’s credibility.

These are the folks who want to talk about trust from minority communities in US medicine? We don’t need Tuskegee to tell this story. We’re doing just fine updating the practice of medical disparities with nonsense like these blatantly racialized travel #COVID19 bans.

And leave me with the “we just wanted to buy time” nonsense. The #COVID19 travel ban re the #Omicron variant were absolutely race-based. This is evidence-based medicine? Revise & Resubmit. This premise fails.

So, re the very good question on the @TheTakeaway right now (re whose uterus). Consider surrogate pregnancies. Who has the "say" over that fetus? Mater est quam gestatio or no?

Viability depends on rural vs urban hospitals, trained staff, insurance, zip code, and can have dramatically different outcomes based on these issues. Also, viability shifts as science advances. Jursiprudence based on demonstrably shifting science is an intentional fiction.

And, while in a truth telling mode: I used to write the names of family members on the blank spaces on my office hours sign-up sheet to give me a break between appointments back in the day when we posted these on our office doors.

Seems like Justice Thomas might want to or should read @DorothyERoberts. I've sent him books I thought he might should read before. Fact. And nope, not telling. Peruse my papers after I'm gone for his response to me. #SCOTUS
