    Hey Rod, Karen, and Justin

    Ooo yall know that twitter activism beef is my shit. I remember when Campaign Zero came out and I remember what I think what caused a lot of this resentment and hate towards Campaign Zero was because Obama had cosigned this on twitter and we know that once Obama likes something all the twitter woke activists automatically assume the worst of it.

    I think a lot of the folks unfortunately fell to pressure from people outside of them, cause I do think they understand that we have to tackle this from all avenues, from harm reduction to abolition, but thats a hard sell to everybody who expect everything to coincide to their ideals and can only tweet in doom and gloom.

    Like one thing that I think Deray has been focusing on the last two years that I havent seen as many of these “abolition” activists talk about is police unions. Digging into those and putting pressure on politicians to either not sign the current union contracts, or push them to do away with certain stipulations on them that will hold police accountable. But again, that work requires nuance and organizing beyond just tweeting about it. And also will take some admitting that we are far away if even impossible away from abolition, but what we can do is hold police officers accountable. and Reducing the very strong iinfluence Police Unions have on local politicians and voting in politicians who can push back against those unions.

    All of that to say, It is sad to see them break up over this. and I hope that what they learned from this is that those social media activism accounts will turn on you if they think youre too “big time”. And that sometimes you will have to work with orgs/people that folks will find as a “knock” to ur “twitter cred” but if you’re getting results thats all that matters.
