National Guard Major John Jenson says they will have 1,700 troops on the ground by tmrw —almost three times the original pledged number

Quoted @RyanFaircloth

Gov. Tim Walz: "What you see tonight will replicate tomorrow unless we change something in what we're doing."

Uh...no shit https://t.co/LQMEqWQPKS

Lots of wishful comments from Gov. Tim Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey. But no clear plan of action detailed for how they will stop riots in the coming days, other than saying they are doing everything they can.

INBOX: Minnesota Republican Party calls for Gov. Tim Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey to resign. “These gentleman have demonstrated they are not equipped to run Minneapolis or Minnesota. Their inaction has led to riots across our country.”

If you’re not working for justice, stop calling for peace.

Quoted @ewarren

The idea that communities of color alone are responsible for fighting racism is misguided and can have dangerous consequences. It’s not enough to stand as an ally. We must be anti-racist. White Americans must ask ourselves what we are doing every day to dismantle systemic racism.

What would happen if White people who are lamenting rioting, but not racism, would lament racism and be antiracists? In particular, I’m calling on White faith leaders to step up and do this work. Slave-holder religion must go. https://t.co/Xfc39XskOb

I will address Minnesotans and the media at 1:30am for an update on the situation in the Twin Cities. Tune into MPR or your local TV news station.

Wow, I don't remember a governor holding a press conference this late. https://t.co/lRpnwUhFRq

If you're treating this as a team sport and asking why protestors were at CNN or why they weren't at Fox News, you are showing you don't know what these protests are about. These protests aren’t about teams, they’re about standing up to power. There is no party affiliation...

They are now FIRING SHOTS into the protestors in #DTLA #icantbreathe WE WONT GO HOME!! They cannot stop us. #BlackLiveMatter @MayorOfLA https://t.co/fOuJqcjz0E

How and why does a new bull market begin when unemployment is at 25%? Asking for a friend.

“And frankly I can’t wait till they come for you. Your house. Your family.” Disgusting. https://t.co/kNhgtj0bAM

This is disgusting and uncalled for.... You do not call for violence into their homes and on their families.... What the fuck is wrong with you? Get some help https://t.co/uCB1gCVyC5

This is disgusting @NicoleArbour 

How dare you mention @secupp’s family this way. 

Are you threatening her and her family? https://t.co/r9VsU0jAjd

I’d really like us to not forget that some of us only started caring about these murders and issues because a global pandemic forced us to direct our attention to them because we had nothing else to distract ourselves with. That’s an issue. We need and have to do better.

THREAD: A few years ago, I spoke up against @Kaepernick7 kneeling during the National Anthem. While it’s still not what I’d *personally* do, I want to apologize for being so ignorant about the issue of racism in its entirety—all these years later.

This thread encapsulates exactly what I’ve been feeling. Please read https://t.co/SWiiJ775Rr
