1. Thread on the relatively common practice of ignoring Black Historians within the public forum:
On December 28, 2018, @politico created somewhat of a scandal among historians when it announced that it had asked “16 top historians” to predict the future of America –
2. and out of all sixteen, only one scholar was a POC. But the Politico article was simply one of the (very) many examples of the near-erasure of scholars of color – particularly Black scholars – in mainstream media.
3. I’m not going to get into how detrimental it is to America to portray our history – and indeed, our future – as a white-centered history told by almost all white historians. And I’m not going to comment on why this is the perfect example of how, when diverse voices

@TheBeatWithAri You must be so desperate that you would give racist a platform. @MSNBC you contributed to the election of #RacistInChief, and you only care about filling your pocket.
With this administration’s atrocities, you choose to give NAZIS a platform

#MSMComplicit
Apparently @TheBeatWithAri and @MSNBC love to give Nazis a platform, because Brannon’s ideas can help reunite the kids separated from their parents and caged #WhereAreTheChildren
Apparently @TheBeatWithAri having White supremacist Bannon on will resolve police brutality on black people and the forgotten #BlackWomen #blacklivesmatter

The thing that puzzles me.

The companies that permitted- even fostered- the environment that let the worst faction of Gamergate morph into the so-called Alt-right?

Now want to stop it?
Nope. Please try again.
We're meant to believe that Facebook is so very sorry for fake news spreading on its platform?

When they knew they could change our mood with their algorithm?

1. You’re Welcome @GOP, @SpeakerRyan and @SenMajLdr. You dodged a bullet in Alabama last night due to the outpouring of ground-level activism from #TheResistance and the consistently shrewd wisdom of #BlackWomen voters.
2. Thirteen months ago I wrote that the #GOP was embarking on a dangerous path by moving forward with an administration and agenda that was expressly against the will of the MAJORITY of Americans.
3. A #POTUS that is an abject embarrassment hangs around your neck in a slowly-suffocating choke hold, but you continue to spinelessly support his inane behaviors. Approval ratings of GOP leadership dip into the sewer mirroring those of the buffoon you put in office.

Hello, Twitter! Congresswoman Terri Sewell here. I'll be taking over tweet duty for @TheDemocrats over the next little bit for some real talk on last night's big #ALSen win and the power of the #blackwomen vote! - @Sewell4Congress
I knew that black women could change the world long before the incredible headlines we're seeing today. My mom, a high school librarian with a master’s degree, became the first African-American woman elected to Selma’s City Council and served 11 years. - @Sewell4Congress
Decades later I sought office for the U.S. House and became the first black woman to ever serve in Alabama's Congressional delegation where I presently represent Selma, Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, and more. - @Sewell4Congress
