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.

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."
Graham Moomaw @gmoomaw
In a vote that split along racial lines, a Virginia School Board adopted a policy declaring "there is no systemic racism or bigotry perpetuated by the United States"
Bolu Babalola 🍯&🌶 @BeeBabs
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 @RevEricAtcheson @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

Someone told me “givers should set boundaries, because takers rarely do.”
AFRICAN & BLACK HISTORY @AfricanArchives
“fuck it, i’ll do it!” —black women
Black women are routinely erased from public memory and historical narratives of resistance.
Black women powered the civil rights movement, but rarely became its stars. #InternationalWomensDay

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
Thats a good man, Savannah James @Kyla_Lacey
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

: "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
colson whitehead @colsonwhitehead
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…?”
