As a cishetero black woman, I will get excited about @JulianCastro running for president if a core part of his platform is black women's health outcomes, particularly our maternal mortality crisis.

Issues like police brutality & trans housing (important, no doubt) won't do it.💅
The days of getting me hyped up *solely* on issues that impact other marginalized groups or those that *disproportionately* impact black men won't work.

No more #MoralityMuling. As a loyal democratic voting group, we need a CLEAR, high priority in every campaign.

As far as I'm concerned, all of the current Democratic presidential candidates are all the same until they unapologetically make those in the likeness of MYSELF, black cishetero women, a top focus.

We've been carrying y'all for too long with LITTLE in return.

We're done.

A few things:

Because you don't seem to understand the framing of "muling".

* #NotYourMule wasn't created to "save the black race". It doesn't need saving. Sub-Saharan Africa will reach 2 billion by 2050; &

* "Saving the community" is also not our burden. That's for USA govt.
It's amazing to me how we can create a platform *explicitly* advocating black women to put on our own oxygen masks first..

And SOMEHOW in the minds of randoms it's still about "saving the race & community".

I'm telling you. Everyone wants to make use of us.

THAT'S muling.🙄
The idea that we are bottomless wells of GIVING is muling.

The idea that we must devote our entire lives to "busywork", despite DECADES of witnessing the same cycles is muling.

The only thing black women haven't done, en masse, is put the bags down and dare to take a timeout.

What can black women do today?

1st - Stop muling. Stop the unnecessary, avoidable struggle where we have complete control.

We didn't start the war, but we're not playing offense.

We continue to be complicit in our own devaluation by supporting those who devalue us
Don't care how this comes off- you're going to have to deal

As a 41 yr old married black woman who has maintained her figure after childbirth, excellent health, doesn't mule, unstressed & unbothered, businesswoman, who has full time autonomy & building wealth?

I promote US.
I am surrounded by educated, upper middle class and wealthy, black, white, Asian and interracial couples

And I don't carry any baggage like a mule.

EVERYBODY knows that my dark skin and being a black woman is not impacting MY quality of life negatively.

It’s so funny and ironic how #liberals call #RadicalFeminism#WhiteFeminism”, yet, I’ve come across so much actual #racism directed at me and other #GenderCritical black women from self-righteous #trans activists/allies and libfems. 🙄
I’ve gotten more racism from that crowd in the past two weeks than I’ve gotten from any #RadicalFeminists in two months. Or any amount of time. Liberals routinely erase the radical #WomenOfColor from history who either called themselves #radfems or influenced radical feminism so
that they can call radical feminism “white”, misappropriate #Intersectionality from #BlackFeminism to try and justify including males in #feminism, argue that “transwomen are women the same way Black women are women”, (racist and dehumanizing comparison of black women to males),
