And on #MLKDay2019, make sure you’re listening to the perspectives of African-Americans today. How diverse is your feed #OnHere? Some follow suggestions:

@IjeomaOluo @aejohnsonphd @ToriGlass @charlotteirene8 @AntheaButler @RevDrBarber @amaditalks @AngryBlackLady @ManInTheHoody
Finally, don’t just diversify your feed and call it a day. Listen to and amplify African-Americans. RT them. Be grateful they’re here educating us when that’s not their responsibility, and tell them that you are. And take it upon yourself to learn more about race in America.

On this MLK Day eve, I want you all to see this & know this as well as the “I Have A Dream” speech. Speechless at his wisdom and truth. "No other ethnic group has been a slave on American soil. And then color became a stigma." Transcribed remainder below.
“America freed slaves in 1863, but gave them no land or nothing to get started on. Emancipation for the negro was really freedom to hunger. Freedom to the winds & rains of heaven. Freedom w/o food to eat or land to cultivate. Therefore it was freedom & famine at the same time.”
"When white Americans tell the negro to lift himself up by his bootstraps, they don’t look at the legacy of slavery & segregation. We ought to do all we can to lift ourselves up, but it’s a cruel jest to say to a bootless man he ought to lift himself up by his own bootstraps.”
