Our country pays no mind to racist, hate charged tweets when unfairly directed towards women of color... but is on high alert when people wish that a white man gets what's coming to him after he created it. Our country is beyond the point of return. May it be a better place after the inevitable conflict it brings upon itself. 

Edit: unwoke madness might be a more appropriate thread for this post

House passes resolution to denounce Covid-19 racism toward Asian Americans

"But the support for an Asian American-centered issue also, in part, speaks to the importance of representation among legislators, Chu said. She said there is a record number of Asian American and Pacific Islander members of Congress, about 20."
"It is significant that it was able to be passed on, but it is also a result of the fact that we do have more representation in Congress," Chu said. "We were able to educate our fellow members of Congress about what was going on to the Asian community with regard to these Covid-19 hate crimes and incidents."

I see multitudinous threats of violence, death, doxing... made every week against some of the folks I follow on twitter.  The same with hate speech, racism, bigotry etc. 

Very rarely has anything been done by Twitter in regard to suspending or deleting the offending accounts.   

 

Jeffrey Toobin: "This is the most embarrassing week ever."
