Thread for my white #feminist friends (of all genders)

Content: Sexual violence, racism

There is a racial divide on social media regarding #SurvivingRKelly
Most black folks I know have posted about the docuseries in the last few days (thankfully black people in my networks are expressing support of the victims of sexual abuse & coercion though their posts suggest to me that is not the case with their entire friends network)
In contrast, nearly all white folks I know are not even acknowledging the docuseries, the #RKelly conversation, nothing. This divide/contrast reminds me that white people are not required to know what’s happening to and among black folks.

✅ how survivors can protect themselves on Twitter while this is a thing, and

CW: Abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence.

If you as a survivor feel like you can't? That's ok. I might try and leave part way through. I'm ok about it.

We can be ok about it.
CW: Abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence.

I'm really *trying* to be around when #SurvivingRKelly starts and to be in solidarity as a survivor of an abusive relationship, sexual assault and sexual abuse.

But it's ok to walk away at any point.
