Retweeted by Rob Ruminski @hopelessbkwrm @JillFilipovic YES! I was hoping to see Lucy in this thread. Thank you.

Retweeted by Rob Ruminski @LucyXIV shit know I'm reading a thread of replies to the @CHAPOTRAPHOUSE crew when half of the people are called Enema Goldman or some shit.perhaps if Elijah had been hit once by a coward car in the middle of Kings Cross there'd be widespread outrage & a swift law reform response

Was Jeet just wearing blinders, or is he actively being disingenuous? YES. @marrowing Gifted class was one of the few places where I could express myself and ask questions without ridicule. @marrowing One man's experience: I grew up with teachers who told my parents to tell me to hide how smart I was so… this thread.

But their "oversights" are directly related to the privilege and securi… anyone imagine a foreign born nonwhite person running for Parliament and not being intensely, acutely aware of their immigration status?Interesting lesson in all of this: immigration status is a formality for affluent white people in affluent, white societies.
