A Janitor Gets Tested For Covid 19 

I just got tested for the virus.

New York State is now testing essential workers (call 1-888-364-3065 to make an appointment).

The only testing site in my city is drive-through. You can't get tested unless you're in a car, and they don't allow taxis/ubers.

This is pretty darn classist/racist. Essential workers are less likely to own a car and more likely to be PoC. Half my coworkers don't own their own cars. I don't own my own car. My partner drove me.

I make walking toys! They use a passive dynamic walking method, which means that they're powered by gravity not batteries.

Hopefully these toys will eventually become the core of a small toy making business I want to start. They're also a way for me to research bipedal locomotion in order to one day, if at all possible, build a real dynamic giant walking mecha that I can ride inside.

Follow me on YouTube to see my progress.

Today I released the first edition of Riot Medicine, a public domain book to help street medics in the struggle for liberation, autonomy, and dignity for all. You can download all 466 pages for free here: riotmedicine.net/downloads

So, the NFL has changed their tune and agree that kneeling in protest against police brutality is a-okay after protests against George Floyd's killing.

What's so different between his murder and the murders of Keith Scott, Terence Crutcher, Alton Sterling and Philando Castile?

What's made them care now? Where was their conscience in 2016? Why didn't Black Lives Matter then?

Don't applaud them, they ruined Colin Kaepernick's career for daring to speak out.

Sen Paul blocking passage of anti-lynching bill 

Just as an example of how royally fucked up in the US Senate, KY Senator is singlehandedly blocking passage of a bill to make lynching a Federal Crime nbcnews.com/politics/congress/

ICE, crimes against humanity 

ICE is gassing people in what is essentially gas chambers

What the fuck

@IronMan Also worth noting, the cops didn't quit their jobs as cops, they only decided they didn't wanna be on the ERT any more. It took zero spine for them to do that.

@IronMan

The blue wall needs ripped down.

None of them should be able to keep a badge, anywhere.

And some people have the utter gall to wonder why folks are protesting across the entire USA, why there have even been riots.

Remember that the sayjng is "one bad apple spoils the bunch." It's not "it's just a few bad apples, so it's ok."
