This tweet …
We seriously just rolled our eyes so far back in our heads we were able to see our backside.
Seriously with this, Yamiche? Applauding Nikole Hannah-Jones for running away to her safe space … and being granted tenure is far more than just having a space that ‘barely tolerates her.’
So many lessons from my friend @nhannahjones, this morning.
Go where you are embraced, celebrated, valued and supported.
Go where you don’t have to fight for people to see your brilliance.
And, avoid spaces if they barely tolerate you, even if they’re familiar and beloved.

Nothing says bravery like Nikole creating her own little bubble and safe space.
Using brilliance in the same proximity as this privileged, lying, fraud is criminal. You and her are about as useless as 2 people can be and look at how well you've done for yourselves? The American Dream right there!

You forgot, "Being a journalist doesn't mean you should just report facts. You should pursue your personal agenda too … yet absurdly insist you're just reporting facts."https://t.co/ezGBBjkPJ2

You are a political activist, not a journalist.

Pretty sure this is their new job description in 2021.
Literally celebrating someone creating a bubble for themselves so they can avoid criticism.

Stunning AND brave.
What environment? The environment where a self-admitted fabulist with no prior professorial experience is given full tenure?

The vast majority of what passes for "journalists" these days are activists…they abandoned journalistic integrity a long long time ago. Yamiche and Nikole are at the top of that list.

True intellectualism seeks hard places and difficult conversations, not people who already agree.

In other words, do not tolerate opposing points of view.
Deny science and education if they don't comport with the current narrative.
This will end well.

Hide from criticism, call it racist if it occurs.
Avoid having your perceptions challenged, find a group-think institution and camp out there.
Hide from criticism again because “spaces”.
Life advice from a gov’t employee hiding her advocacy at NPR.
So many lessons.

So she's going to a place where her lies aren't challenged.
