Federal judges have ruled against the Trump administration at least 63 times over the past two years, an extraordinary record of legal defeat. Excellent deep dive from @amMixmaster & @thedeannapaul https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/the-real-reason-president-trump-is-constantly-losing-in-court/2019/03/19/f5ffb056-33a8-11e9-af5b-b51b7ff322e9_story.html

Remember all of the pundits who *insisted* that the existence of Obama-to-Trump voters meant that Trump's victory couldn't have been driven by racism? (good @AsteadWesley piece) https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/15/us/politics/trump-white-voters-politics.html
Obama - the most cautious & thoughtful politician we've had on issues of race (to the point of a flaw) - had to contend w/his most innocuous comments (Harvard profs shouldn't get arrest in their own houses, if he had a son he'd look like Trayvon) prompting white people freak outs https://twitter.com/nycsouthpaw/status/1106585530257629184

If you’re arguing against the idea that American policing is inherently suspect, Baltimore - where police were found to systemically violate civil rights and to be running a literal street gang while also almost never solving serious crime - is a very odd example to choose. https://twitter.com/wesleylowery/status/1105464350456926208
This is misleading. BPD solves almost no violent crime (even pre-Freddie Gray)/just had one of biggest scandals in history of American policing (in which officers ran a violent gang) Both widely discussed by liberals and reformers as it relates to crime wave
