I did a breakdown on @poplifepodcast with Jeff, Nai, Inca & Shawn about the WGA & SAG strike, but I’ve never really explained the reasoning for the strike #OnHere. So, here it goes. I’ve been a SAG/Aftra member since 1994. Basically, the Screen Actors Guild is the Union all… … all working actors have to join, in order to work on union projects. I came to LA for the summer in 1994 as a kid & immediate started working. So I had to join. Through the union, you have access to health care and other resources. Resources that the Union fought for. One…

When he said, worst outcome for kids is when dad get new gf/wife, espc if dad has kids w/ new gf/wife becuz statistics show men abandon their previous kids… this hit bcuz I have SEEN this. Multiple times in my life. Wow. There’s a saying that I’ve heard from women my whole life & it’s is something like, men (not ALL) love the kids as much as he loves the woman. And if mom & dad fall out, mom stays & there’s a big chance dad will be on to the next. This makes perfect sense in the context of …

Personally, I think the sharing of videos w/ police murdering Black ppl (including Black children) is continuing the legacy of Chattel Slavery/Jim Crow. White families would dress in their Sunday best, bring the kids, bring food & watch human lynchings as entertainment. I would never in a million years WANT to see videos of *any* school shootings with kids being killed. EVER. I don’t want to *see* anyone be murdered. I also think it furthers the desensitization (that Black ppl STILL experience in hospitals today) of violence toward Black ppl.

Yesterday, there was a thread w/ people realizing that if getting an abortion is a felony, then this is *also* targeted voter disenfranchisement of women/ppl w/uteruses. It was a light bulb moment for so many in the thread. Nevermind that the convo about felons & voting rights… …is not a new one. Activists have been beating that drum for decades. And while I don’t know the ins & outs of everything, it’s just a reminder of how race trumps *everything*. Because the idea that felons (men AND women) can & do get their voting rights taken away has…

Twitter isn’t a real place when folks stay on here all day calling ppl (not cis men of course) who need/want abortions “sluts” & “whores” but are silent on SCOTUS *also* saying they’re also coming for CONTRACEPTION. They talking about you too darlin’. “Why don’t ya’ll use condoms”
Uncle Clarence said he thinks condoms, the pill, IUD’s yadda yadda also need to go. And oh yeah, say you *want* your pregnancy but miscarry or have an ectopic pregnancy (can’t control these things) and need a D&C so ya know…you don’t die…

I don’t know shit about shit. But what I *do* know is that Twitter has been a huge platform for people, often ignored & criminalized by mainstream media. Black ppl and POC’s, women, specifically Black Women & WOC & Trans Women, LGBTQ folks, folks living in poverty… …as the middle class has been shrinking for DECADES w/o any real policy changes to address it. We’ve seen REAL conversations of how student loans affect ppl’s whole lives & we’ve seen that even with the changes to our health care, ppl still have to crowdfund to get their …

Everything aside, the 2 main characters will be just fine & are both heavily loved/supported, even more so now, despite what SM says. They both started their careers w/ Black folks and are both still, VERY loved/heavily supported, even w/in the various reactions. You saw that… …with Denzel, Tyler & other “elder statesmen” immediately surrounding/calming/supporting the 2 main characters. Ok. That said…this fall out has made something SO clear. Not the obvious racism which is never late (always fun when ppl link up over everyone’s fave past time😍)…

This pod is about how, the school district of this town in Texas were on track to include anti-racist teachings into their curriculum…until 2020 happened. Parents /school officials that were once onboard, suddenly were not. Only 6eps & it’s very thorough.… I’m at the part where, the Mayor is assuming that the parents *against* adding anti-racist education into the curriculum, are in the minority. A small percentage of most parents. Spoiler…

This is all about forcing WW & girls to have babies & try & hold off what what we already know is inevitable. It has nothing to do w/ morals or God (because how could you force a child to have an unwanted birth), but everything to do with keeping a shrinking white majority. Those ppl don’t give a damn about Black women’s babies, Brown women’s babies, or any other non-white babies. They see our babies as a prob because not enough white babies are being born. This is about WW & girls & FORCING them to have babies against their will to try & keep up.

You know, while we’re talking about the (underly reported) major shift that’s happening in the US work force/job force, I wonder how much of that is also bcuz of the way this country basically said fuck you to parents who had to scramble last yr to find child care? I know… …a LARGE portion of the workforce that was fired/let go last yr were women. Women who were fired/had to leave because of child care. That has been studied/written about. But even #onhere folks were very annoying at the fact that American parents didn’t have…um…a backup…

Thank you all so much for your prayers and words of kindness🧡 I’m at such a loss. I was a Philly kid straight off the Greyhound bus who took a lot of things 4 granted. Watching you work & move gracefully from scene to scene…made me love & respect this business. Our talks…we had lots of them. You taught me so much. I will never 4get you💔

Black Americans, absolutely! Loooove her! Just like Flo Jo & Gail Devers. I always forget how 🔥 the TL is during the Olympics. ESPC track! 2012/2016 & now 2021. Excited to see all fashions this year😍😍😍 Track & field is & has always been my FAVE event. I think for lots of ppl on twitter too cause that’s where, not only a lot of the Black folx (all of the diaspora) dominate, but the girls always give us fashions!!! A lot of us are old enough to remember Flo Jo!

I feel likeNaomi was very clear in saying she’s been struggling w/ bouts of depression since 2018. What happened in 2018? She won against her IDOL. What did she witness the press do 2 her idol?? AND What did the press do 2 HER in order 2b RACIST/SEXIST to her idol? Oh right... Naomi who is a similar complexion to Serena, was made to “look” lighter. With blonde hair. Serena was made to look like...this. Can’t imagine why Naomi, another BW dominating this game, could be battling depression. Can’t understand it at all & what it must’ve been like...

I learned about Black Wall Street on Twitter. Learned more from #Watchman & #LoveCraftCountry on @HBO. Been listening to podcasts about the massacre since. You should too. Oklahoma is doing WRONG by survivors, to this very day. Also, S/O to Gentrification.… And because nothing moves in this country unless white ppl can make money from it, with all of the new eyes on this history, gentrification is on the rise. Imagine that. White gentrifiers & land owners wanting to have their shops/apts/businesses in this historic area in Tulsa...

Will never forget how many folks said this girl deserved to be murdered. Turns out this girl & her sister had been calling for help for a while. “But Bryant’s killing also cast a light on the state’s foster care system, with an attorney representing the slain teen’s family calling for an investigation of the system and whether girls in the foster home were properly supervised.”

A tip, all of these relationship folks are a scam. All of them. The books. The talks. All offem. The sooner folks learn that, the better😂. NO ONE can tell you what you need to do to have the perfect relationship cause perfect relationships DON’T EXIST. Work on YOU. Go to therapy. All of us need it. Work on you. Love yourself. Love yourself ALONE. If you’re happy & secure ALONE, no one will be able to come in & bring chaos into your life. Date for fun. If things get serious great. If not, have fun. There is no secret🙄

Man, I’m so appreciative of the tools parents w/ kids on the spectrum have now, that they didn’t have back in the day. We’re all still learning & trying to be better, but I’m so thankful that we have the language to offset the status quo. ESPC for school. And I’m not even saying most schools are even TRYING to be less ableist. But I think parents are being more protective, more aware and are FORCING these schools to ‘get with the program’. ESPC as the mom of a Black boy. Tyger doesn’t learn the way other kids might learn &...

If you’re worried about the kids, they do not care. They are not dumb & know what entertainment is. Now...the adults??? That’s a whole nother story. But that fear adults have has nothing to do w/ kids & kids aren’t letting adults put their own fear, onto THEM anymore. It’s very similar 2 adults putting their weird views around sex, onto kids. Like, ‘just don’t let them see/hear/learn or talk about sex & that’ll keep them from having sex’. Will it?? Or will they pick up the fear in your own voice/actions & know not to come 2 you about anything?

Welp, first kid is back to school this week. My oldest starts back next week. She’s 8th grade & had planned to stay home (even w/ her brother going back) but she would’ve had new teachers. So she’s back next week. We gone see how this goes! My 8th grader was absolutely fine w/ not stepping foot in her middle school ever again lol. But she loves her teachers & wants to keep them. Wild that she’s never met them in person. What a year 2020 was & thank GOD we have new leardership. We’ll see what this 8th grade...

YK what’s wild about seeing/HEARING voter suppression live & in real time? How the media, including white progressive media, threw Black voters under the bus & blamed us for 2016 even though they all knew voter suppression prohibited what, 200k voters from voting in key states. There were articles all over the place admitting that in key Red states, voter suppression of Black & Dem votes was very real and yet, ‘Low Black turnout’ was everywhere. Those were even Progressive talking points. Nevermind that 200k votes were tossed/not allowed when we knw...
