  • Mon, 13:09: A thought on #Ferguson - I don't know what happened. I have a theory, but I don't know. Here's what I do know: (1/n)
  • Mon, 13:10: 2) We have spent so much money, nationally, on militarizing our police, as reported by @radleybalko and others. But no cameras in #Ferguson
  • Mon, 13:10: 3) The surveillance state is dangerous, but it's hear. Cameras on police cars and lapels is one way to make it work for us. #Ferguson
  • Mon, 13:11: 4) I work on police violence and disability. In case after case, the camera has made it possible to find out what happened. #Ferguson
  • Mon, 13:12: 5) The camera is not a panacea. But it changes the power dynamic just slightly in the favor of justice. #Ferguson
  • Mon, 13:29: RT @drgoddess: Twitter Family, one of our major goals today is to get this albeit raw eyewitness account out! https://t.co/ePYgHXrppb #Ferg
  • Mon, 13:35: Dear #HigherEd - When you write for someone and they pay you, it's pay, not an honorarium. Just a thought.
  • Mon, 13:37: New post: Resources on nonhire of Steve #salaita - 1) news 2) reactions 3) conservatives decrying prejudice a/g them. http://t.co/SdN2GZFnIP
  • Mon, 13:42: And now I'm heading to the office. Try not to do anything interesting in the next 30 minutes.
  • Mon, 15:13: RT @homophonous: Has anything been written on people other than #Ottoman officials signing their names in #tughra form? (Pls. RT)

  • Sun, 14:03: Sunday Roundup - Essays on Comedy, Abortion, and Blood Libel. http://t.co/6tVqmDTld5

  • Sun, 15:14: Just to point out the obvious. If the Xians, Jews, and Yazidi have been in Iraq for centuries - that included the Middle Ages, ok?
  • Sun, 15:14: The scary things about ISIS are their modern elements, not their medieval echoes.
  • Sun, 15:22: RT @mtracey: I too just scanned the Yazidis wikipedia article, and am available for interviews.
  • Sun, 15:25: I'm reading a study in which six white conservative phds were forced into a life of adjuncting for their political views. (1 of 2)
  • Sun, 15:25: Because apparently there is no other reason that a qualified phd might not land a tenure-track job (2 of 2).
  • Sun, 15:48: RT @sarahkendzior: Logging off for awhile. Respect and love to #Ferguson. A national tragedy but local for me. Ask #Ferguson what it needs …
  • Sun, 15:54: Reached the point in the essay where I just don't think I can finish it. Also known as "sentence two." #writingishard
  • Sun, 17:39: RT @tressiemcphd: & on cue we start saying Michael Brown was starting college. To perform humanness hoping for interest convergence http://…

  • Thu, 12:43: ICYMI Yesterday's CNN piece joking about Down syndrome, focusing on an episode from @ThisAmerLife (1 of 2) - http://t.co/3INzKSOMNJ
  • Thu, 12:43: 2) After the piece was up, I had a long & really thoughtful conversation with Wyatt Cenac, the comedian in question. http://t.co/5lQpsnRN7Y

  • Thu, 13:24: RT @roopikarisam: Twitter has opened up the contours of the academy; made me committed to working in public; made me think about genre, rhe…
  • Thu, 14:19: New blog post: A @ThisAmerLife episode from 1996 with terribly cruel joke using the r-word, rebroadcast in 2013. http://t.co/AxlyX4vTJF
  • Thu, 14:20: 1) 1996 really was a different era in terms of disability representation, though the lines, by David Sedaris, were plenty cruel then too.
  • Thu, 14:21: 2) Sedaris has this whole bit about seeing a group of disabled people and not being able to tell NYers from the r-words. It's terrible.
  • Thu, 14:21: 3) But in 1996, I can see why @ThisAmerLife would broadcast it and not think twice, or at least not more than twice.
  • Thu, 14:22: 4) Today, though, it strikes hard and hurts. I have a letter from a father who pulled over to the side of the road and wept when hearing it

  • Wed, 12:45: New on CNN: You are still mocking people with #downsyndrome if you use a disclaimer to try and have it both ways. http://t.co/S6dKtXhfVU
  • Wed, 12:47: In my @CNNOpinion piece, I talk about an episode of @ThisAmerLife in which @wyattcenac made fun of the way people with #downsyndrome talk.
  • Wed, 12:47: 2) What's interesting is that he didn't just make jokes about the r-word, which is typical comedy, but tried to skate around.
  • Wed, 12:50: 3) I talk about the ways in which comedy can punch up or punch down, reinforce stereotypes or challenge them. This is punching down.
  • Wed, 12:50: 4) It's not that @wyattcenac and @iraglass are doing something terrible, but they are doing a bit that mocks #downsyndrome speech.
  • Wed, 12:51: 5) There is no disclaimer that makes it ok. No disclaimer removes the sting from the joke. The disclaimer says you knew better.
  • Wed, 12:54: 6) I have a new blog post up with extra links and a full letter from @bipolaroids - who alerted me to the issue: http://t.co/pvZ47JXXGa
  • Wed, 12:55: 7) What's going to happen now is being told, "He didn't mean anything by it." Later, after I take the kids to school, I'll say more a/b that
  • Wed, 12:56: 8) My rule: The outsider doesn't get to decide whether the insider is offended or hurt. The outside only gets to decide whether they care.
  • Wed, 12:57: "When you make fun of attributes associated w/ disability, you might as well just be shouting the r-word." http://t.co/3INzKSOMNJ
