Here is a thread about why #Kavanaugh most likely doesn’t remember what happened with Dr. Ford, and why the #MeToo movement will make sure this never happens again.
It’s 1985 and a friend of mine has just secured a job as a receptionist/bookkeeper position at a small family owned law firm. The father is the head of the firm. He has two sons who work for him.

Why I think #Kavanaugh is lying: 1. Dr. Ford's sessions with a therapist where she named him and the boys with him happened six years ago.
2. Brett Kavanaugh's calendar proves he went to parties with Mark Judge and P.J. - Dr. Ford named these two men BEFORE his calendar was made public. If she didn't "hang in the same circles" as Brett Kavanaugh, how would she know this?

This is a thread about how institutional racism works.
In the 1950’s SUNY schools & community colleges offered FREE tuition to local students. My mother-in-law, who is white, took advantage of this program and received her degree from SUNY Buffalo in Speech Therapy.
When my father graduated from high school, he was not told of the opportunity for free tuition because black students were routinely not informed of the opportunity for a free college education.
