Just spoke with Bobi Wine and team. Their home is still surrounded by the military, and those inside unable to leave. Bobi et. al have had no access to food for days.
How embassies, in-country, have not demanded entry with food is beyond me. A total abdication.
Please don’t act like everyone loved my father. He was assassinated. A 1967 poll reflected that he was one of the most hated men in America. Most hated. Many who quote him now and evoke him to deter justice today would likely hate, and may already hate, the authentic King. #MLK
When identifying race in visual descriptions for #blind people, don't skip white. Often I read things like: John, a Black man, stands with Jane, a dark-haired woman. Intentionally or not, it perpetuates racism. Descriptions & antiracism are both needed to improve #accessibility.

Folks want to be anywhere but here , but you’re “there” is always someone’s home
And the phenomenon of people treating islands as where you go to not have rules is something folks from islands who often gotta leave em feel deeply

57yrs since “I Have a Dream” speech.
6 months since #BLM murals painted on streets across America.

WE are beyond the point of words and performative statements.

Powerful letter from twenty four Arizona state legislators to @kyrstensinema and @captmarkkelly:
"We strongly request that you speak out publicly in favor of the impeachment, removal from office, and preclusion from any future office of Donald John Trump."
Sadly, much of the media and many members of the Washington establishment want to deceive Americans into thinking those who raised concerns incited violence, simply by voicing the concern. That’s false. And the allegation itself is corrosive and dangerous.
Dear politicians/political influencers:
When you tweet about my father’s birthday, remember that he was resolute about eradicating racism, poverty & militarism.
Encourage & enact policies that reflect your birthday sentiments.
Here’s the authentic #MLK:
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) says Dems should pass $2K on top of the $600 from December, rather than add $1,400 to get $600 to $2K.
"$2,000 means $2,000. $2,000 does not mean $1,400,″ @AOC tells us
Replying to @AOC: Unemployment benefits should be retroactive too.
Hello Uganda! Despite the wide spread fraud and violence experienced across the country earlier today, the picture still looks good. Thank you Uganda for turning up and voting in record numbers. The challenge now is for Mr. Byabakama and the EC to declare the will of the Pple.
For #HumanRightsDay I joined some powerful friends to call @MBuhari to account for the brutality against #EndSARS protesters. We penned an open letter in @nytimes & will continue to demand justice until all Black Lives Matter. Read, sign, share. 🌍🙏🏾
