Like are you saying you love them or are you saying EYE should love them (presumably more than I do? Which is hard. I think they’re great! 😭😭😭)

My life has been *lifing* and arguing with folks is not on my 2022 vision board lol.

So I’ve been watching from afar the tactical argument about voting rights.

But, FWIW, I think it’s missing some accurate historical context…
A *very brief* and *oversimplified* summary:

“Support Biden-the GOP is the real enemy” & “Biden’s power is limited”

vs.

“Biden must do more” & “speeches aren’t enough at this point.”

Again-oversimplified for the sake of time. I mean only to add some history to the convo…
A note: I get it. Emotionally, it can be terrifying to challenge assumed allies-especially as marginalized folks.

It always feels like the little we have can be taken away @ any point (and criticism of an admin that includes a WOC can feel dangerous. I understand!)

Why is Peggy Noonan?
I ain’t never seen a more “they hate us cause they ain’t us” lady in my life.

The misogynoir is deep w that one.
I’m not reposting that article. Y’all gotta be a mart enough to see the difference between genuine feedback to the (white led!) party broadly and laying a “lack of seriousness” at a Black woman’s feet like she needs to be “humbled.”

Like, girl….

Headlines aren’t neutral.

When @usatoday gives clickbait like “is math racist,” it supports supremacist anti-CRT attacks.

The article is about bias in the way we *teach* math. But nobody reads the articles.

They just blast headlines like #1 across Fox News that lead to #2.
These were literally next to each other on the @twitter trending page and I know the copywriters #onhere know better.

Language matters. So does aiding bad faith rhetoric with real-world harm.

And I’ll remind us that
@USAtoday is treated like the “neutral” paper. So innocuous that it’s free in hotel & motel lobbies across America-red and blue states.

Nothing is neutral. Especially not in media.

What’s the one thing the universe knew not to give you cause you’d be entirely too arrogant?
If I naturally/easily had hair all down my back I’d be a full a** hole 😭😭😭
Me when people are like “yeah but my hair grows back fast.”

When has American “democracy” ever been saved without the sacrifice people who suffer from said racism?

Oh that’s right, folks want us to save them and never ourselves. Got it Ok hand
