Comic. Books. 🫠🫤🤐🤫🙃 Please read Franklin’s thread above. The whole thing. About comic books. And then imagine it wasn’t comic books, but historical photographs of enslaved people. That someone buys & makes into a “collection” on IG. And then publicizes it right before his movie on enslavement drops.

My God, why would he share this?? Take it all, Marilee. TAKE IT ALL. I don’t know why, but learning that Marilee is TJ’s SECOND wife, and he’s still going on about how hard he knows it was to be married to him… makes things worse.

I’ve watched some bad movies lately. Break me out of the slump. Which should I watch next? Here’s a poll: The results said I should watch Tick Tick… Boom! first. Since I never saw it on Broadway, I thought it made sense to watch Rent The Musical The Movie first. Boy, was that a mistake.

I have something to share. Tomorrow. I’m so excited about it that I’m vibrating. Whole thing was like a dream. Watch this space.

Me all day today: I believe that God can dream a bigger dream for you than you can dream for yourself. I know that’s true because never in my wildest dreams did I see myself having brunch and conversation with @colmandomingo and @AudraEqualityMc!! They both have such generous spirits. Image

This fool really has someone else’s plate pinned to his feed like it’s his own. Why are you stealing from @Britt_Webb_, a Black Woman, “chef?” So we’re clear. Posted four days before his.

I think there’s a way to let kids have choices when it comes to eating, & it’s often wrapped in privilege. Can one afford to take your kid shopping and let them pick different veggies to try? Does one have the time to find/cook a recipe using it instead of the faster ol’ standby? We need to recognize that sometimes we heard “Eat what I make or don’t eat!” because that’s the only thing there was. Or that’s the only thing our caregiver had time to make. Sometimes it came from a place of scarcity.

If that’s not OUR story now, we can/should change that.

FYI: The @USPS has a thing called Informed Delivery. Every day, you get an email telling you what mail will be delivered that day. They take pics of the envelopes. You may not think you need this... until you don't get something you've been sort of expecting. 1/ #Thread I applied to renew @DHSgov Global Entry months ago, finally had my in person interview, & was approved. They sent out my new card, replacing my expired one. @USPSHelp said it would be delivered on July 6. I never got it, or any of the other mail that day, including tax docs.

As we slowly emerge from the Panini fog & begin to travel again, let me tell you how the Black Women of @thepointsguy, @AvQueenBenet and @vikkie, saved me nearly $4700 on a hotel stay. Gather round, chil'ren. Auntie has a story to tell. #Thread Planning a trip several months away during PEAK peak season. The hotels jack up the rates so bad it's mind-boggling. For a five night stay, it was going to cost $5665. WAY out of my price range. I'm a faithful reader of @thepointsguy, so I start to finesse & finagle.

This party is NUTS. All your faves are here. And I’m not allowed to say who because we’re not supposed to be on our phones. 🤐 Headed back to the hotel. At 4:20a. I’m going to miss TF out of this city.

Can we just stop photoshoots until after the Panini? This can’t be what the photographer or the subject wants. That second shot is giving... Image Wasn’t a single Black person at this shoot but LaKeith. How do I know? Brotha’s lineup.... ain’t. Taco meat ain’t the move on the chest. And his elbow looks dry as Karen’s mac n cheese. This isn’t a ding on LaKeith. It’s about this industry forcing these shoots. Image

“Black Panther @theblackpanther is hands down the crowning achievement of the @Marvel universe.” ~@RobertDowneyJr

Thanks to @MayaRupert for leading the live tweet. Let’s go! #WakandaForever is our hashtag. The story I read is that Sterling's character N'Jobu was planning to break out of prison his wife, Erik's mother, who was being held as a political prisoner. #WakandaForever

My mother just texted me that I need to turn on Rev. Al. I turned on the TV and he said "We have too many holy punks in the pulpit." I sat straight up. Rev. Al going straight at @nflcommish & the @NFL: "Don't apologize; give @Kaepernick7 his job back. Don't come w/ an empty apology as you take a man's livelihood & strip him of his talents. When Colin took a knee, he did so for the families in this building." #GeorgeFloydFuneral

I've been struggling for a week about whether to share this, because it was a personal moment. But I think it may help someone with perspective, so here we are.

When I travel, there's always something nice waiting for me when I get home. Never expected, always appreciated. This time, the gift didn't wait for me to cross the threshold. When I got off of one of my flights on January 2, my phone was blowing up: "Julián is out." It took me a minute to process, but I got it. @JulianCastro had ended his 2020 presidential run. I was blown.
