The [Tuesday] Papers

I should be done with census work in another week. Until then, this space may not budge.

Thread. Start here.

Programming Note
The census is winding down, though not in a way that would violate the court order extending us back to October 31st, which specifically orders us not to "wind down." I am only using that phrase colloquially! Quite simply, work in my zone has dried up because we've run out of addresses to "resolve." That's census jargon for determining the status of address - does it exist, and if so, did it exist on April 1, and if so how many people lived there then. We'll see what the remainder of this week has in store. There might be some "clean-up work" available.

P.S.: Who wants to buy the magazine article/longform post?

Social Media Platforms Remove War Crimes Evidence
"In letters to Facebook, Twitter, and Google sent in May 2020, Human Rights Watch shared the links to this content that had been taken down and asked the companies if Human Rights Watch could regain access for archival purposes, a request which was not granted."

School Of Rock Finally Realizes How White It Is
"[U]tilizing the collective knowledge of the talented instructors across the School of Rock system, the company has published on its website a series of articles and interactive content on the historical contribution of Black artists to Rock and Roll. Early Rock artists featured include Etta James, Ray Charles, and Sister Rosetta Tharpe, in addition to more recent innovators like Prince, Tracy Chapman, and Gary Clark, Jr."

-

Lame.

For example, I love Tracy Chapman's 32-year-old debut record, but she's hardly an innovator.

Just discover Prince?

Just embarrassing.

-

Let's face it, the School of Rock should have started out all black and had white artists added to teach the true evolution of the form. After all, it's a school.

Everyone just stop lying, please. Stop.

Of course, if we were a society that valued the truth, lies would be few. But we're not. Our whole structure is built on deceit - economic and otherwise. It's the foundation of our institutions - particularly those that most proclaim otherwise. And now those institutions are crumbling.
