At least 6 busloads of soldiers were dropped off near the @WhiteHouse. No one would tell me anything (unit, numbers, orders) except that they are coming in not going out. A soldier started speaking to me and was reprimanded. pic.twitter.com/gap0oS7PM5

Black journalists talk to each other about the racism in our newsrooms, and share info about the bad actors and the people who dismiss, suppress, or disrespect Black voices. We know who they are, and many of us have kept receipts. (10/20)

A misplaced ellipsis? The horror! I confess error and, like The New York Times leadership, throw myself on the mercy of the child mob now running the newspaper.

This editors’ note is another humiliation to The New York Times.

By the way, those Buffalo cops didn’t actually resign from the police force, which would’ve actually required sacrifice. They’re still employed, still getting paid, simply refusing to make themselves available for anti-riot SWAT duty.
