The deep, comedic irony of this is that Western sanctions played a huge role in ending apartheid-- the white supremacist system that put Nelson Mandela fought against -- and was imprisoned by. But go off, Vlad!! https://t.co/j1AXjD83uu

Last year, Lupita Nyong'o was named a De Beers ambassador. Rihanna wore De Beers diamonds while performing "Lift Me Up" from the Black Panther soundtrack. I wrote about the symbolic irony of De Beers associating itself with the stars of Black Panther. https://t.co/bIaBoo61cw

Taking a small personal social media break. There's a lot that's been wearing on me, and I need to take better care of my mental health. I'll still post my work. Per my contract with Artemis, I will post him. He wants to maintain his brand relevance in the cat pic market.

My high school graduation was my very first appearance in a newspaper, almost 20 years ago. :) Thanks for finding this from the @dallasnews vault, @msberbiage! My mom wants to know if she could have a copy :D https://t.co/CQbq8C1O8W

Is anyone else still feeling extra glitchy since the time change —-or is it just me?

Went back to the vet for a follow up. Artemis checked out fine and is back to his normal, playful self. Vet said that because his seizures are so rare (last one was last year), it’s not so urgent to put him on medication. Artemis was happy to hear that.

This thread is a response to the discourse that started this week after a female therapist said she was done taking male clients. The stories here are.... my God https://t.co/omk3PWk8qd

Artemis update: The little guy has been back to normal, eating a lot, playing, and back to plotting his next career moves. We are going to the vet tomorrow to see about medication for his seizure and to follow up on whatever was going on Friday. Fingers crossed

Artemis update: My handsome little floof seems mostly back to his normal self and is eating and drinking normally. He’s enjoying (supervised) fresh air on the patio with me right now. Thanks for all your well-wishes!

I wrote about the scandal around Raquel Saraswati, a prominent activist. For years, she claimed to be Arab, South Asian, and/or Latina. A few weeks ago, she was outed as being white. But that isn't the worst part of the story..... https://t.co/Jmc8QYkmJu

Oh yes. Same reason why back in the homeland there was a long-standing tradition, according to my mother, of hiring guards to protect the graves of girls and women for the first week or so. https://t.co/rAERfK4jw0

Well good morning to everyone else who also said colorism matters when having discussions about racism in the workplace. Besides the eyes in our head, we have a study to back that up https://t.co/Svo2XlJIVE

All of this talk about Ciara’s dress and y’all didn’t mention that it wasn’t for the Oscars, but an Oscar party themed-event “Barely there” this brings perspective.

@vanguard_pod Reminder that when GOP lawyers working for DeSantis were forced to define "Woke" in a court of law, under oath, their definition boiled down to "The belief discrimination exists in America, and should be addressed."

“Every time Black people coin something that symbolizes our desire for liberation, it will be made into 'anti' whatever the sentiment is.” How did Woke go from Black to 'Bad?' Cultural experts and LDF unpack the sinister takeover. ⬇️ #LanguageisPower

Actually it is an ironic symbol, she is taking up space as a Black woman, whilst the white not only represents a femininity BW have traditionally not had access to but also how whiteness has obscured and obstructed paths of progress, in this essay, https://t.co/18bLPkOfBR

Eric Atcheson, aspirant to accomplished mediocrity
@KarenAttiah Several years ago a person active in academic anti-racism circles who identified as both Black and brown called me a disgrace on my genocided ancestors for not being leftist enough for their tastes. A few years later, they were outed as white. And we keep resisting real reform.

"That Saraswati seems to have shifted from being a token Muslim of color in right-wing spaces to a token Muslim of color in left-wing spaces is proof of just how much White power structures blindly rely on superficial 'representation'" https://t.co/mRv22w2EJT via @KarenAttiah

A fact that has stuck with me since I’ve learned it, in part because it’s so disturbing, is that some of the first suicide prevention strategies were developed in response to African captives dying by suicide on slave ships.

Showtime has a documentary coming out in April on the story of 'Lightning' Lee Murray. It's arguably the most insane fighter story in MMA history, which is saying something. https://t.co/Ha9NyHRyVY

Chris Rock makes comedy for white people who have a Black friend.

Chris Rock said “you don’t fight in front of white people”, but had no issue calling a black woman a bitch in front of white people, negatively commenting on black women’s hair in front of white people, or letting white people use the N-word around him smh yo

.@KarenAttiah: "If #Ghana’s govt were serious about building diasporic bridges, it would invest in its schools’ teaching more about colonialism and the trafficking of enslaved people, and about the challenges that Africans in the diaspora have faced." https://t.co/8UHzd9pLa0

Being on Twitter now is like hanging out in the high school parking lot after you’ve graduated. It’s lame, but you had some good times there and you haven’t found anything better to do. “Hey, what are you guys up to…?”
