Since we replaced real political principles and radicalism with representation people think just by being black and buying property in a black neighborhood to sell back for 500k means they are revolutionaries or at the very least doing it for the community
All you have to do now is say “I’m black and middle class, therefore everything I do and I benefit from is a benefit to all black people” with no proof of the benefit
I still can’t forget how perverse it was for the black middle class to turn a radical movement into “buy black,” to completely derail community political engagement for vegan burgers
Meanwhile, these house flippers are doing panels, “financial education” on how to gentrify black communities. Why aren’t they fighting for unions? Wages? Hosting clinics on gov benefits that can help folks keep their homes? Because they’re selfish

I don’t think billionaires have any real plans to colonize space, at least not in their life time and we know that’s all they care about. This is really about keep people enamored with the spectacle of their wealth
Why should it matter that Jeff bezos went half way to space when have had people in a space station for decades??
Theres no reason this should be big news we do know this right??
