"Georgia has had 9 rural hospital closures in the past few years. We don't have Medicaid expansion. There are issues around healthcare, education that have bipartisan support, & yet we have a Repub govt that is making decisions based on their own needs and power." @TheWayWithAnoa
"The modern GOP itself, since the 1960s, has been fashioned on opposition to Black civil rights & freedoms. That was the basis of the Goldwater campaign in 64, the Nixon campaigns in 68 and 72, the Reagan campaign in 1980, on and on." @joelowndes
I had the privilege last week of discussing pressing questions of race and class, state power, and the right last week with Kimberle Crenshaw @sandylocks, Carol Anderson @ProfCAnderson, Anoa Changa @TheWayWithAnoa, and David Blight on @AAPolicyForum's Under the Blacklight.
"The belief in general is that we have to police black and brown people who want freedom, but for white folks, and for white supremacy culture, they need to blow off some steam, they're not that harmful." - @doccrearperry on #UnderTheBlacklight
