Whenever ppl ask about #Twitter, I'm always honest: There's a lot of abuse of women here, but the amount of VILE comments & threats aimed at Black women is unconscionable.

I completely understand why WOC wouldn't want to be on Twitter at all...

But for those of you who weather the abuse & disgusting comments (often daily) & stay here as educators, activists & scholars: Thank you. Thank you.🙏

We- white ppl & men- *should* be doing a better job of ENDING this.

Allies: start being aware & support & promote Black women!
And yes I'm feeling saucy today so this is a subtweet of *many* white men here - esp those with a lot of followers.

Y'all need to do better following - & *promoting* women. And nearly ALL y'all need to do better by Black women.
