Prolly not @shekharkapur but others included @ShashiTharoor famously did that and more ON British soil AND were featured in The Guardian and that video is still available on You Tube in UK. Most of you Bollywood dudes have turned into Vivek Agnihotri, unintelligent whataboutery..
 
To the heartless racist people messaging me saying with joy that the shooter is Asian instead of being heartbroken and devastated for the families and friends who lost their loved ones…respectfully, never talk to me again…In fact, just shut up forever and don’t talk period.

Worth noting that while Toronto has been named one of the host cities for the 2026 World Cup being jointly held in Canada, the US, and Mexico, the feds and province haven't publicly agreed to Toronto's request they provide $180M in funding thestar.com/news/gta/2022/…
Funding to help Torontos 2026 World Cup bid still up in the air, says Doug Ford

SO incredibly excited to be writing two books for @McClellandBooks. The first book will be on the richness of Black prairie life.

On this day, I remember 13 year-old me in Niamey reading Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Mariama Bâ and dreaming of becoming a writer.

Oooh, that is great, thanks! I hope you don't mind if I adopt your suggestion!
Replying to @UbakaOgbogu
Of course. It’s all yours to do as you wish.
 
Replying to @UbakaOgbogu
Yes, very much. but I don’t know if “relegated” is the right word. Suggests an intentionality when to my mind the have-mores are indecently indifferent. More like: contorted to fit projects of hope and picked up by social advocacy…
 
i'm fed up with the university's lack of communication with students, faculty, staff and unions about these sexual assaults. why do we need to read the Star to keep ourselves informed? eyeopening story from @mobocks + @BKennedyStar
 
My statement in response to the decision by Harvard Kennedy School Dean Douglas Elmendorf to reverse his decision to block a fellowship for me proposed by the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy.

We especially need to look at how Black, Racialized & Indigenous women are treated in politics. Yes, it's bad for all women, but the barriers, the micro-aggressions, that Black, Racialized & Indigenous women face is real. Once in office, what are the support systems for them?
True of politics but also all sectors - corporate DEIs or even executives. Checkbox positions are inane and costly for everyone

Not new news, worth repeating:

Statistics Canada finds people of colour generally more educated but paid less:

“they (could be explained) by some unobservable characteristics, such as motivation and, of course, discrimination within the job market” nationalpost.com/pmn/news-pmn/c…

It is sad to see two important women in politics step down within a day - Laura Mae Lindo and Jacinda Ardern - but at the same time it should make everyone question why women who push for change burn out, and how we can support them better. I'm happy they chose themselves.
 
I GOT TENURE TODAY.

And I did so by sticking to my vision, never comprising, being as political as I felt I needed to be, and overcoming unimaginable challenges. #allispossible #tenured #beattheodds

Help me amplify this moment!!

It’s *extremely* common to have people with privilege characterizing people calling out systemic issues as “whining”.
This is it. The worst, most out-of-touch, unintentionally self-parodying letter I've ever seen in the Chronicle. pic.twitter.com/axNpaCSE0N

My father’s “dream” wasn’t palpable to the white masses, including politicians.

He challenged militarism and sought to eradicate it.

He worked to end poverty, as caused by extreme capitalism and materialism.

We need to know the authentic King…The Inconvenient King.

“That’s the fundamental difference [veneration vs. denigration]. And if we don’t account for that, then we ignore how embedded in every single depiction of the Prophet is a politics.” -Prof @AnverEmon's commentary in op. by @ShreeParadkar in @TorontoStar thestar.com/opinion/2023/0…

Today, let us remember Martin Luther King as he was: A Black radical anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist, revolutionary Christian internationalist who was deemed an enemy of the State and assassinated for his radical work. Just about everything else is a lie.
 
If you trust Doug Ford not to use the crisis he helped create to privatize healthcare one piece at a time, I have a priceless bejeweled bird to sell you.
 
An explosive @torontostar investigation exposed anti-Black discrimination in Toronto police. It changed the city. Kudos to @Jleerankin for this groundbreaking work and all that has followed. thestar.com/news/gta/2023/…

“72% of Americans disapproved of #MLK when he was shot—as well as 50% of Black Americans. We should never forget that. We all love him now that the worms got his body. But when he was speaking the truth, he was radically unsettling folk.” — Cornel West bostonreview.net/articles/corne…

There is online misogyny and then there is racism which compounds it. Film shows the misogynoir faced by a Vermont politician that clearly crosses into personal harassment, intimidation. thestar.com/opinion/2023/0… pic.twitter.com/S407mVuPpe
Replying to @ShreeParadkar
The four women in this film represent the thousands more, if not millions, around the world targeted for having opinions, suffering as if we lived in 1923 not 2023, facing a choice: either be online and suffer or keep quiet, withdraw. Shut up! Well. We. Will. Not.
 
A new film in online hate premiers at Hot Doc Cinema this evening. A stone dropped in my heart when Glen Canning - dad to Rehtaeh Parsons 💔 - appears in it. But it shows the calamitous futures that await if we don’t tackle this now. thestar.com/opinion/2023/0…

Wow, that’s quite the statement from the Muslim Public Affairs Council on the Hamline U situation where a prof showing a historical image of the Prophet Muhammad was calling “Islamophobic.”. Universities in Canada, please note.
Hamline art professor Erika Lopez Prater was wrongly fired and accused of Islamophobia after showing a painting depicting the Prophet Muhammad to her students. Click below to read our full statement.

At Pink Ladoo we spend a lot of time talking about toxic, sexist, damaging traditions, but wanted to flip things a bit today.

What are some South Asian traditions that you LOVE?

Countless dinner invitations to any new bride. More countless invitations on news of pregnancy. Plus countless ones because baby is so cute.

All of Canada needs to stop what they are doing, spare a thought for the child whose jawbone was found on the grounds of the Qu’Appelle Indian Residential School in Lebret, Saskatchewan. Bone is about 125 years old, Sask coroner says. Child was btwn 4 to 6 years. @fsinations

Demanding professors not discuss history, religion because it is uncomfortable to some is an unreasonable restriction. Not to be confused with seeking an overhaul of language, curricula, practices that continue to harm the historically marginalized. thestar.com/opinion/2023/0…

I agree with Prof Emon that the situation at Hamline is not all that different from the hiring fiasco at U of T law school, when a major donor expressed objections to its plans to hire the academic Valentina Azarova, who had previously criticized Israel. thestar.com/opinion/star-c…
Replying to @ShreeParadkar
Or this situation
The Harvard Kennedy School denying me a fellowship is not going to stop me from speaking out. But I worry about younger academics who are watching this sorry episode and take away the lesson that if you criticize Israel, your career can be stymied.

Meghan & Harry are doing all this, not because they want to dismantle colonialism, but because they were not accepted by it. This social phenomenon is interesting and begs the question: What if the Royals had embraced them? The public would be cheering for diversity & inclusion ?

We cannot police people out of poverty. There is a more humane and cost-effective way with housing for all. Study after study:

A month in prison costs: $9,400

Month in hospital: $30,100

Month in shelter: $6,600

Supportive housing per month: $2,500

Housing is a human right. twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
