Remember when some of us naively thought the plunge in flu cases during the 2020-21 season might normalize mask-wearing because it showed people that they don’t have to get sick and suffer from colds, flu, and even hay fever every year? Now it’s just “fuck y’all!”
This is one of the most misinformed & disgusting pieces I've read. Shocking to think that scientists in NERVTAG advising govt are saying this. 'Living with it' doesn't mean doing nothing & letting 'mostly the old and vulnerable die'. I'm so tired. bbc.co.uk/news/health-599702…

Pandemic leadership matters. #COVID19 mortality per capita by state. 📍Public health is policy, policy is politics. 📍Human behavior is often driven by misinformation. 📍Misinformation is often driven by politics. 📍Politics can be changed by voting — unless voters can’t.

How many of these deaths would have been prevented by simple mask requirements, vaccination and proper air filtration?

Dear abled people, I’m tired. when you have indoor events or go on vacay, you’re telling me you don’t value #disabled & sick lives. You’re telling me we’re collateral for your momentary privilege. Abled supremacy keeps this pandemic going at the expense of sick & disabled people.

It's a pandemic. We didn't have a better choice. Also this is happening right now:

This article continues the false narrative- unsupported by evidence- that remote learning was the cause of academic challenges being faced by students. Research shows that out-of-school factors overwhelming affect stdnt learning. Easy 2 scapegoat schools, as always

This is the school version of NIMBYism in a lot of ways. Having to live in the best school district, get your kid the best teacher, and ultimately get into the best college is something a lot of middle class and upper middle class white parents center their lives on.

rich white parenting's circular project is proving your kids *deserve* the advantages that you work your ass off** to gain for them; not having a way to deliver "best" during the pandemic broke a lot of fancy brains (read the thread which refs a @tressiemcphd editorial)

Also Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. Also what you would call Critical Race Theory.

Every Confederate flag flown shows the content of their character. It is a flag of insurrection and a flag of hate, and a flag of bigotry. That’s the history of that flag.

There's absolutely no doubt in my mind that you would consider this to be teaching Critical Race Theory.

“Whites, it must frankly be said, are not putting in a similar mass effort to reeducate themselves out of their racial ignorance,” MLK Jr. wrote in 1967. “It is an aspect of their sense of superiority that the white people of America believe they have so little to learn.”
Martin Luther King Jr would support banning Critical Race Theory. MLK Jr said to judge others by the content of their character, NOT the color of their skin.

Please stop using out of context quotes from my father to excuse not working to eradicate racism. His “content of their character” quote lies within a full speech, ‘I Have A Dream,’ in which he talks about ending racist police brutality and economic injustice. #MLK #TruthTeller

ha maybe bc global mutating viruses are confusing? I get that Biden’s gonna get hit bc he’s in charge but I kinda chuckle when this is presented w/ no context there’s no leader on the planet who’s been able to contain the virus
Replying to @CBSNewsPoll
And when asked specifically why they don’t think he’s handling it well, two thirds cite information about the outbreak being confusing. Few attribute it to a lack of vaccinations.
