2022 marks my 35th year of teaching, elementary, middle & hs students to community college, community & prison classrooms to undergraduate, graduate & graduate students. Now remote too. Teachers worried about everyone’s health during this crisis. In-person is frontline work too.

My husband and I shop at a small business & were chatting w/ the owner - an older Black man. He asked what we do. My husband said he’s finishing his Masters in I/O psych & I’m finishing my neuroscience PhD The man repeatedly told us “I’m so glad you’re doing this. We need you”🥺

I’m sure you’ve been at a cookout, a club or just on the block when someone started bumping some Eminem and then everybody just… Exactly.

Today is the birthday of baseball great Josh Gibson, often regarded as one of the best hitters baseball has ever seen – though he was never allowed to play in a single MLB game. Gibson passed away just three months before Jackie Robinson broke baseball's color barrier in 1947.

So his position is…because he was a cop… New Yorkers don’t have the right to question him or ask him not to torture people at Rikers. It’s almost like electing a cop for mayor might’ve been a bad idea. Almost like they think they’re above us. Dunno, just a thought
