Imagine thinking “the national press” is trying to ✌🏿make ‘jawn’ happen ✌🏿

two Americas. or should i say: two Delaware Valleys.
Look, i hate the tourist-ification of this word, too. But we were saying this long before all these suburbanites decided they wanted to get their reverse-white flight on and putting it on t-shirts and ugh
Oh, a Penn Law professor from Montgomery County doesn’t like a piece of appropriated Black Philly slang?

Well, that settles it then.

Bruh, you from Rye. Relax.

@alwaystheself Yeah, it’s one of the confounding things about him. I went through a kick over a decade ago when i read a bunch of biographies of him and came away genuinely surprised at how often I’d heard the exact same views expressed by Black folks of all kinds — it wasn’t illegible at all
@alwaystheself Your point here, about him trauma bonding with white conservatives, is really sharp/important — it’s so much about personal anguish that it ends up not being scalable.

His personal relationship to his grandfather is revealing, too.
@alwaystheself His grandfather — who raised him along with his grandmother from a young age — was a mean, cold man who never showed him any love or tenderness. Thomas called him “the best man i have ever known”; his autobiography is literally called “My Grandfather’s Son.”

It’s always some clown named “Rational Thinker Numeral Numeral”
how seriously can you take anyone who thinks mainstream media outlets are organized around the logics of critical race theory?

Like, it really feels like these people would characterize literally any mention of “race” or “diversity” as CRT
is there some kind of conservative/anti-woke intellectual history about the supposed ascendance of what they call “critical race theory”?

It’s just wild that these people never quote Black people or set aside space to engage with Black thinking on any issue unless they find some Black person who wants to defend the souls of white folks.
was avoiding that Q&A, finally read it, and...again, this person is about to be hailed as brave truth teller just for saying the kind of simplistic, “i haven’t done the reading”-ass things that white people say all the time about race
(Seriously. Let’s pay attention to what happens next with this person and their visibility.)
