I want y’all to know that the backlash to both Critical Race Theory and anti anti-racist training are wedge issues designed to fire up conservatives and swing voters ahead of 2022.

These same anti-Black culture wars were used to dismiss Civil Rights legislation in the 1950s/60s
Also Critical Race Theory was developed in the 1970s by a generation of Black, post-civil rights era university and law school professors to highlight how race was used in law to purposely be antagonistic towards Black people.
Which occurred in the same era as white conservatives/libertarian campaigns to dismantle civil rights gains began in law schools

The backlash to Affirmative Action, busing, fair housing, collegiate costs, Ebonics, and ethnic studies all arise here as a result of white resentment

"As an African-American woman, Lythcott-Haims wrote, she was taken aback that he would say this to her "with no facial affect." She went on to say that Thiel made "no effort to even acknowledge the pain the concept of apartheid could possibly raise for me, a Black women."
“One day I heard a rumor that Peter defended apartheid (which was then still the law of the land in South Africa), which I found morally repugnant.”

This afternoon, I spoke with a veteran legal expert ON THE LABEL SIDE who has anonymously shared their thoughts with me on the #KanyeWest recording contract(s) with UMG and his decision to share those contract(s) with the world on Twitter. More analysis tomorrow, but for now...
Record labels have been moving more toward “distribution” style deals with established stars where the label royalty rate is low in the US because they can earn good revenues from deductions and ex-US sales. Outside the US the artist royalty rate is lower.
In the case of Kanye, before he gets paid, UMG has allowed itself to deduct its marketing costs — which may be internal, and therefore margin-bearing — and unrecouped amounts from Kanye’s PRIOR contract(s).

.@goodyear told workers not to wear clothing / hats for political candidates while on the job: not for Trump, Biden, OR the Birthday Party candidate Kanye Kushner. Trump's so thin-skinned, he'll threaten 1,000s of US jobs in revenge.
In related news, #JaredKushner says it's a total coincidence that a Trump campaign attorney is helping Birthday Party candidate #KanyeWest get on the ballot to take votes away from #Biden.
#JaredKushner talks to #KanyeWest every day about how people who can trace their ancestry back to "shithole countries" will never "catch on" that Kanye has "no chance" of being "elected." forbes.com/sites/randalll…

#BREAKING:So #Kushner showed up on #CBS' #FaceTheNation but got ZERO questions about the NIXED #covid19 testing strategy or #KanyeWest shenanigans? C'MON @margbrennan!!

#TheResistance #SundayThoughts #FBRParty Image
SERIOUSLY folks, #CBS' Margaret Brennan didn't think that DURING A PANDEMIC, people would want to know WHY #Kushner NIXED a #covid19 testing strategy because he thought the virus was only ravaging Dem states? Hmm

#TheResistance #SundayThoughts #FBRParty

#CBS' Margaret Brennan also didn't think people would want to know whether #Kushner was engineering #KanyeWest's presidential run? Hmm

#BREAKING:Turns out #KanyeWest, who's mounting a presidential run just to PEEL OFF Black voters from #Biden, RECENTLY met with #Kushner and @IvankaTrump. Folks, can this scheme be any more OBVIOUS?

According to the piece, @KimKardashian, who's playing the "I'm not involved in this" role, was also in Colorado, but didn't meet #Kushner/#Ivanka. Come on folks, let's face it. Kim's IN ON IT!!

#TheResistance #IvankaTrump #KimKardashian #wednesdaythoughts #FBRParty
So let's get this straight--#Trump's Advisors #Ivanka & Kushner, and #Trump's lawyer, are all working hard to get #KanyeWest on the ballot, but Trump has nothing to do with it? Hmm

1.¿Podría #KanyeWest ser uno de los candidatos para las elecciones presidenciales de EEUU?¿Cuál de los dos candidatos oficiales se vería más afectado?¿Elon Musk podría ser su vicepresidente?¿Se trata todo de una propaganda para publicitar su nuevo disco?🤔
Abro hilo 🧵🎵👟🗳️🇺🇸👇
2. Aprovechado la fiesta nacional de los Estados Unidos el rapero, productor, diseñador de moda y marido de @KimKardashian, @kanyewest, anunció su candidatura a las elecciones de presidenciales vía Twitter.
Sí, a esas elecciones que son a menos de 4 meses
3. Aparte de en las redes sociales, el nombre de Kanye West no aparece registrado en el Comité Federal de Elecciones.
El único nombre similar del que hay constancia en el registro es el de Kanye Deez Nutz West, que es candidato miembro del Partido Verde.

🇺🇸 ❗️HILO DE EMERGENCIA❗️🇺🇸

La candidatura del rapero #KanyeWest en las elecciones del próximo noviembre pone el panorama electoral patas arriba

¡Te explicamos las implicaciones y sus posibilidades reales de victoria!

👉Dentro hilo👈 Image
Ya se han celebrado las "elecciones internas" de los dos grandes partidos: el demócrata presentará a Joe Biden y el republicano a #Trump.

Fuera de los 2 grandes partidos ningún 3er candidato ha logrado éxito reseñable alguno desde 1912. La jugada de #KanyeWest es arriesgada. Image
No obstante el candidato tiene algunas bazas a su favor:

💵 Una fortuna personal que le permitirá sufragar su propia campaña electoral.
🎤 El apoyo de buena parte del mundo del arte y la cultura.
📺 Una potentísima imagen televisiva gracias también a su esposa Kim #kardashian. Image

For those of you who still haven’t gotten around to it - you should listen to Kanye West’s new album. Not simply for listening pleasure or to find a new song to jam to in the car, but to witness the transformation. This is the kind of change that validates the gospel of Jesus.
Ye built his career on rapping about the objectification of women, violence, extreme narcissism, etc. He went from proclaiming that he’s a god and an album title to back it up (Yeezus) to proclaiming about him being a servant of God and an album title to back it up (Jesus is
King). From the looks of it, Kanye’s life has changed - a complete 180. That’s the heart change that the gospel brings. How does that change come about? One realizes that they’re disconnected from God - a sinner (Romans 3:23). Our offenses against God (sin) have consequences just

“...people usually gain power through traits and actions that advance interests of others such as #empathy, #collaboration, openness, #fairness...when they start to feel powerful or enjoy position of privilege, those qualities begin to fade....(1)
...The powerful are more likely than other people to engage in rude, selfish and unethical behaviour” #RebeccaSolnit citing #DacherKeltner on his work studying relationship between empathy and power
“If power generates a cushion of obliviousness around it, those of us with power need to counter it. That means, first, treating people with respect, regardless of their status: not taking the invitation to disdain or ignore” #Solnit

#JesusIsKing by #KanyeWest initial thoughts: 1. Every Hour - gospel choir bops, 2. Selah - words of truth, favorite lyric "the strong start on Sunday", Matthew 6:33-34 seek God first, 3. Follow God - do it! heavenly Father > earthly father,
4. Closed on Sunday - more than just an ode to Chick Fil A & lemonade, this is how he wants to live every day, 5. On God - insight into old Kanye, Jeremiah 29:11, Ye didn't die because God has plans for him, and all things work for good Romans 8:28,
6. Everything We Need - my favorite track, favorite lyric "Baby let's put this back on the tree cause we have everything we need." A godly man leads his fam, and it's about contentment, 7. Water - a prayerful cry out to God, favorite lyrics "clean the music", He did. Matt. 12:34,

1) I must agree with my American friends who happen to be black WHOLE HEARTEDLY that they are unrepresented. We're going to rescue them from the Democrats. Amazingly intelligent & intuitive folks who happen to be Black DESERVE authentic power and a say in things.
2) Americans who happen to be Black were misrepresented, under-represented, lied to, forced into a life of Urban servitude by the DEMOCRATS! Nobody can STAND BY and let this happen. We MUST support visionaries like @RealCandaceO & #KanyeWest and DELIVER their messages.
3) Here's the way Power will work if everybody is free & has access to all levels of Governance through elective process. If you have a 17% American who happens to be Black population, they should hold 17% of the Seats of power at be President 1 out of every 5 times.

1) Columbus Day 2018 is half time at the 2018 Mid-Term Bowl. The score is GOP 17 and Democrats 16. Let’s recap the first half.

2) Going into the game the Democrats were riding their #BlueWave of enthusiasm. They were so confident America was tired of all the lies and sordid behavior of Coach Trump that the Democrats could win the game easily.
3) They laughed at their good fortune every time a GOP player would pledge to work closely with their coach; such easy pickings.

So, let me do a bit of story time on @KanyeWest, since he thinks he's out of The Sunken Place. And I can't thank @JordanPeele enough for his metaphor.
*stirs tea in teacup*.
I have a confession. The only reason why I am not mad at @KanyeWest right now is because I have held a petty grudge against him for many years because he had a mother with a Ph.D. who taught Literature at Chicago State University, yet he named his first album, "College Dropout."
I did not mean to hold the grudge that long; but it just continued because of everything I would feel every single time I saw that album and thought about not only his Mother but everything at Chicago State University, home of the Gwendolyn Brooks Black Writer's Conference.
