Regarding the New York Times ⇥ kareem.substack.com
What we need to always be aware of is that how we treat any one marginalized group is how we will treat all of them—given the chance. There is no such thing as ignoring the exploitation of one group hoping they won’t come for you.
This goes for us individually, but especially for a paper with a massive platform like the New York Times, which Abdul-Jabbar is responding to. A recent episode of Left Anchor is a good explanation of why the Times’ ostensibly neutral just-asking-questions coverage of trans people and issues is so unfairly slanted as to be damaging.
