We had never heard of Keeana-Yamahtta Taylor before this tweet so we did a little digging and it appears she is a professor, a contributor to the New Yorker, AND a key author of the AP African American Studies curriculum Florida rejected.
And seeing this tweet? Sounds like Florida was right.
there is literally nothing left to write about police abuse and violence. Abolish the police.

She’s not even just pushing to defund the police, she wants them abolished.
All we can assume is she’s wealthy or privileged enough not to have to worry about her own safety and security. Surely as a professor, she knows what’s really happening in these communities and that police are fleeing where they are unwanted. Heck, all she has to do is look at Michael Shellenberger’s thread about what’s happening with police and their departments across the country and she’d realize how uninformed and quite frankly thoughtless her tweet really is.
your pansy ass would be the first one to run to the cops if someone said something mean to you

But likely very true.
This is one of the key authors of the AP African American Studies curriculum that was rejected in Florida.
Just so you know.

This is the tweet that cued us in … we found the PDF of the curriculum and she’s listed. Yup.
Or what about, and hang with me for a second, parents start actually raising their children again? Teaching them right from wrong? Teaching them respect, for themselves and others? Teaching them to treat others how the want to be treated? You know, be a real parent? Not a friend.

Be a real parent?
Not a friend?

Sounds like a better idea to us.

Decade? We just got started BUT it’s probably in the running for top 100.

How about we just abolish them in your neighborhood?
You can report back to us on how that works out for you, and we'll go from there.

The people who suffer most from a depleted police force are urban minorities. Not that you care from your cushy Ivory Tower.

The only people who sincerely want to abolish the police are the ones who can afford to hire private security if needed.

We never seem to hear this from those in communities with high crime and violence. Funny how that works out.
