I don’t normally disagree with @FrankFigliuzzi1 but today, I must.

It has ALWAYS been about white supremacy.

None of the previous white, male, homegrown terrorists have been just troubled souls.

They are not little lost boys or lone wolves.

They are radicalized terrorists.
This narrative that being troubled or poor is an excuse for murder or criminality is only extended to white men.

Black boys playing on playgrounds like #TamirRice are gunned down at 12.

Double murderers like #KyleRittenhouse are called heroes at 17.

#Nope #NopittyNope
I am not coming for @FrankFigliuzzi1. He’s a good dude. I like him.

But this skewed narrative that white supremacy and the mayhem, chaos and sadly death it causes being something just a few misguided lone wolves live by is not true or fair to their MANY victims.
This country BREEDS these men. It coddles them from birth. Protects them from the consequences of lesser crimes and transgressions and makes excuses for them once they act on the hate in their hearts.

It’s a “privilege” afforded to white homegrown terrorists alone.

This mess leads to their hate and their actions becoming even more mainstream because many in the media don’t see it or call it the NATIONAL THREAT that it is.

Call it what it is, every single time:

White, homegrown TERRORISM.

I’m sick of this mess.

Good question.

Taxpayers pay for his trips, by the way. YOUR tax dollars are NOT being used to provide #COVID relief, but they ARE paying for @realDonaldTrump’s golf trips (to HIS clubs) AND for @jaredKushner to sell state secrets &/or launder money in foreign countries. MAGA👌🏻

We all know how much you HATE having to decorate the People’s House in honor of Christ.

That you finally managed to forgo your scary usual changes nothing.

You called it “F*cking Christmas”

Whatever you EVER do @FLOTUS my reply will be #IReallyDontCareDoYou? Knowing you don’t.

This will be a thread of tribute to #DavidProwse, who was the physical form of #DarthVader. We all have celebrated the brilliance of @jamesearljones’ vocal performance as Vader—& rightfully so ❤️—but we must never forget the physical swag Mr. Prowse brought to the role. #Respect!

That corrupt racist’s #CovidTheater stunt this weekend was meant to make you forget that he:

1) paid $750 in federal taxes
2) refuses to denounce Nazis
3) torpedoed a debate because he’s accomplished NOTHING in 4 years & he fears @JoeBiden

4) held a super-spreader event that has infected 20+ people last count just so he could fill the Supreme Court seat of a GREAT woman who was a lifelong civil servant with a chick who wants to take away YOUR healthcare and every woman’s right to body autonomy.
5) is inept.

6) has a wife who said she doesn’t give a F*CK about christmas OR the kids in cages at the border who the press wouldn’t talk to her about leading to her wearing a jacket that DECLARED she really didn’t give a F*CK about the kids either.
7) went to a debate with symptoms.

You all know that I believe in a righteous fight. Well, I also believe in giving credit where credit is due after the battle.

Today #Local706, specifically #RandySayer & #PollyLucke moved mountains to ensure that a talented hairstylist is on his way to union membership.

I mentioned them by name because it was NOT a small thing that they did for me, the stylist and the black actresses in particular that will soon have another amazing union artisan to craft their glorious natural curls, coils & blessed kinks WITHOUT heat!

It’s a huge thing!

I also want to thank the amazing union hairstylist #CarlaFarmer for standing in the gap & helping to facilitate the conversation that helped us all work everything out.

I worked w/Carla on my first series regular role EVER — #TheBigHouse in 2003. She remains a real one.❤️✊🏾

It takes courage to live your life publicly—even the darkest moments.

But folks choose to do it because sharing their trials & heartbreaking losses helps others who may be suffering in silence.

It lets them know that they are not alone in their own profound pain.

The greatest gift you can give those who share their life-changing pain is this:

THINK before you speak.
THINK before you tweet.

THINK about how it would feel if it was YOU or YOUR loved one who was suffering.

How would YOU feel reading that shitty, hot take?

Life is hard. Words have power. Universes were created with them. The Bible teaches to be mindful of them.

Lives can be torn down & spirits can be crushed by them.

This is not a game. You are not the comedian you think you are and Karma is real.

Remember all of that, too.
