aishatyler With news today that the President knew exactly how contagious and lethal Covid-19 is and hid it from the public, and that Republicans continue to apologize and ignore what a danger he presents to our democracy, it’s more important than ever that we win in 4 key swing states this November: Texas, North Carolina, Arizona and Georgia. These states have some of the worst voter suppression in the country. Let’s end voter suppression, protect Americans’ constitutional right to vote, and win up and down the ballot this November.
PROTECT THE VOTE. Go to superstates.org
Donate to #ProtectTheVote and let’s flip TX, NC, AZ and GA!
aishatyler Happy happy birthday to this legend @mayoyank 🍀🇺🇸 Looking forward to having the craic together again someday in the future. (Mask lecture comments below will be deleted and your account blocked we were outside and had them down for the meager two seconds while we took the pic save your sanctimony for the battles ahead that matter please).
Could the suspect carry the rifle legally? Kyle Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old militia member who has been arrested and is facing a homicide charge in the matter, was not old enough to legally carry the assault-style rifle he had, according to statutes, which say anyone under 18 who "goes armed" with any deadly weapon is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor. John Monroe, a lawyer who specializes in gun rights cases, believes an exception for rifles and shotguns, intended to allow people age 16 and 17 to hunt, could apply.
He could be in violation of having a gun within a gun-free zone, if there was, for instance, a school nearby. Also, Illinois law requires anyone who owns any kind of firearm in that state to have a Firearm Owners Identification card, but that is only available to someone 21 or older, or someone with a sponsor who is 21 and eligible for a card. #rp@romanymalco
aishatyler With more than 180,000 COVID deaths, 16 million people unemployed, thousands of children caged and separated from their families, there is only one question for America.

1. This white man threatens to kill this officer at least 4 times in this video alone.
2. Turns his back on him and gets into his car.
3. Throws his license onto the ground.
4. Repeatedly calls the cop "a stupid fucking pig."
AND THE COP ENDURES IT. With miraculous patience.
I've said this many, many times. Cops don't need more training on how to be patient or kind or non-violent.
They KNOW HOW to do this.
They just choose to use that patience with white people more than anybody else. PERIOD.
aishatyler As a little girl who adored comic books but rarely saw faces like mine in their pages, it was transformational to see Black Panther brought so beautifully to screen. Hollywood has always claimed black-led movies don’t sell internationally. They were $1.4 billion dollars in global box office wrong. But Chadwick Boseman didn’t just portray fictional hero T’Challa; he brought real American heroes to the screen: Thurgood Marshall, Jackie Robinson. He was elegant, commanding, a powerhouse actor and an expansively generous soul. Rest In Power, Chadwick. You will eternally be a hero in our hearts.
aishatyler We’re all feeling powerless. But there are things we can do. Real, actionable things. This country will change because we change it. Stop insisting America is not a racist country; there are 244 years and counting worth of evidence that it is.
Please, don’t share the #jacobblake video. It’s an execution, and it is incredibly painful and destructive to watch, especially for black people. If you need mental health services there are resources that can help. If you want to donate or call, your voice and donation can make a difference. We can make a difference.
America isn’t perfect, but it CAN be perfected. Let’s transform it into a place where all lives truly do matter.
aishatyler Stop saying “just comply.” Stop saying “they must have done something.”
Rittenhouse fired an automatic weapon into a crowd and walked away because he knew he’d be taken alive.
Tamir and Trayvon were just being kids.
Tamir Rice was a 12-year-old playing with a fake toy gun when he was shot and killed by police.
Trayvon Martin was an unarmed 17-year-old when he was shot and killed by neighborhood watch George Zimmerman as he was walking home from the convenience store.
Kyle Rittenhouse is a 17-year-old white kid who killed two and injured one at a Black Lives Matter protest with an assault rifle, walked by the police after and went home to go and sleep.
