White America does not know what it is w/o the oppressive policing of Black Americans. That's why there's a psychological, cultural and governmental breakdown happening right now (and forever a threat of happening). If that weren't true, y'all wouldn't worry about our hair. #AGT
We are required to repress every marker of our African heritage and racial blackness--a physical impossibility--for the comfort of white identifying people in our presence to avoid harm and violence.
LOL I was talking about r&b and then it got super uncomfortable for a lot of folks but I didn't make Hollywood, AGT or the headlines 🤷🏾‍♀️

Let’s talk about the difference between this where Gabrielle Union emphasizes resources & information for disabled people over Terry Crews’ tweet that said we should eliminate the dis and focus on ability.
Crews employs ableist rhetoric that suggests one overcomes disability or that disability is antithetical to having talent. It suggests that disabled people can’t do things & we should be inspired be their existence.
Union’s tweet however emphasizes how our society needs to change to be more accepting and accessible to all people so that disabled folks specifically here have the chance to develop to their full potential & live full lives.
