"It was not lack of intel that led to this massive security breach—it was a systemic cultural and political unwillingness to take the threat of white supremacist violence seriously." - @evan_greer @fightfortheftr https://t.co/eZqUSh8cuh#BanFacialRecognition— Tawana Petty (@Combsthepoet) January 8, 2021
