The lone speaker defending teaching history was a black girl student.

How is it the “master race” is so easily victimized?— Tea Pain (@TeaPainUSA) July 12, 2021
Do I really need to tell you that capitalism is out of control when billionaires are having their own private space race while a heat wave wiped out millions of coastal wildlife and an entire Canadian town?— Robert Reich (@RBReich) July 12, 2021
Most of what I've seen from Rufo entails him producing primary source material, which is more than can be said for many "journalists." So convenient how you can call for a revolution in how the country conceptualizes race relations, then label any reaction to that a "moral panic" pic.twitter.com/7PUcrQarhy— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) July 12, 2021
Like many, the "billionaire space race" brought to mind Gil Scott-Heron's 1970 poem "Whitey On the Moon" which critiqued race-class dynamics in aftermath of Apollo 11's moon landing.— Vaccinated💉Masked😷Praying for the World🙏🏾✝️ (@BreeNewsome) July 12, 2021
I cut this video as a meditation on Scott-Heron's words in light of current events. Enjoy✂️🎞️ pic.twitter.com/YfklYmwVCe

Don't let anyone tell you otherwise,
especially the folks who made everything about race in the first place.
Take race out of this equation. How the eff does a school librarian not get immediately fired for cutting a 7-year-old's hair without her parent's permission? You could get criminally charged with battery for this https://t.co/KZ08OIOZoM— Leon Wolf (@LeonHWolf) July 12, 2021
