Reality is the predominantly rural & suburban White Texans who keep electing Republicans aren’t actually winning anything but the freedom to die of Whiteness without interference from a functional social safety net. Their electoral “victory” ultimately amounts to self-sabotage. Image They’re gonna keep killing themselves with guns, drugs/alcohol & science denial and the folk they just elected will keep not giving a fuck. Their kids will remain uneducated, unmotivated & uncompetitive and the wages of Whiteness won’t be enough to sustain them or turn the tide.

FYI the reason why the usual suspects are so busy trying to stir up shit betwixt and against Black & Jewish ppl is b/c we’re the 1st & 2nd most reliable Democratic voting blocs & the midterm election’s quickly approaching. Intersectionality is OUR POWER.… Matter of fact, it was this same intersectionality & solidarity in the fight for civil rights (and against White supremacy) that fueled passage of the CRA in the aftermath of the “Mississippi Burning” murders of 1964. It’s a bond solidified by trauma.…

Don’t be surprised or deterred by the fact that Republicans would rather double down on paranoid, persecutory delusions than face their own culpability in Trump’s criminality. Their entire platform is rooted in feigned victimhood, evasion of consequences and blatant lies. Image The GOP’s had ample opportunity to throw Trump under the bus yet they refuse to do it b/c 1) they’re all partners in crime who are covering each other’s asses and 2) their base is too propagandized and rabid to back away from the ledge. Faced with facts, they retreat to fantasy. Image

Translation: despite the urgency of beating back GOP fascism/treason, a lot of White Independents & “moderates” would STILL rather pine away for an imaginary coalition they don’t have the numbers to build than join a *multicultural* coalition that successfully elects Democrats. Ever notice how they wait til the last 3-9 months before an election to decide they’re suddenly so dissatisfied with the menu options that they’d risk an alternative path that’ll most assuredly result in further dystopian bullshit at the hands of the GOP/White voting majority? 🧐

Because the base of the Democratic Party’s been Black voters for the last 60 years, so just as Black people have always been held to blatant double standards that our White counterparts aren’t, the Democratic Party’s always a convenient scapegoat while the GOP gets away w/murder. IOW, instead of holding the White voting majority accountable for repeatedly electing Republicans thereby enabling austerity/patriarchy/theocracy/fascism, they blame the Democratic Party for not being powerful enough to undo the damage without ANY help from the White majority.

Those have ALWAYS been the options but unfortunately the White American voting majority has routinely & by default chosen a combination of 1, 2 & 4 b/c either way that keeps the multicultural Democratic base from making progress towards diversity, equity, inclusion & justice (3). @Vladdiefan TBH I perceive this as y’all trying to somehow catch me/us in a pragmatism hunger games snafu gauntlet as if *we’re* the voters with a pattern of actually doing that. What y’all should be asking is “how can White PA Ds make Fetterman palatable to White voters in PA?”

Explain how the alt left thinks repeatedly choosing a natural born *Independent* alienator (who masquerades as a D when convenient) to represent all of *their* socialist hopes and dreams in a Democratic primary but who goes on to become radioactive in the general is a good thing. Seriously the level of magical thinking and mental gymnastics folk are doing just to evade confrontation and exploration of the simultaneously batshit crazy AND exponentially racially charged political climate we’re ALL facing in the ‘22 midterms is viscerally RIDICULOUS.

For the viewing audience at home I’d just like to add that MUCH of the reason we have to keep explaining the Southern Strategy & subsequent realignment of the D & R parties post Civil Rights Movement is b/c so many of y’all refuse to face facts that racism isn’t just Southern. 🙃 Without fail it’s usually the East/West coast and Midwest folk who’ve never lived in the South and never had family/friends from the South who don’t get that the bigots y’all have up and over there AIN’T that much different than the ones we have here, they’re just more dishonest.

Payton Gendron is an *American problem*. Stop pretending these White domestic terrorists have to look outside our borders for inspiration/marching orders when all they have to do is watch Fox “news” & follow Republicans on social media. #ThisIsAmerikkka #WhereWereTheyRadicalized This train is NEVER late. 😒 #Buffalo

The student loan forgiveness “debate” feels like yet another exercise in alt left performative privilege to me b/c the loudest voices screaming for mitigation don’t center the demographic *most detrimentally impacted* by student loan debt/wealth inequity.… “…the gap in student debt held by Black and White borrowers grows by 6.8% each year. As a result, Black young adults hold 10.4% less wealth on average than their White counterparts due to student debt.”

They created a new, chaotic era of politics/democracy by allowing Trump/the GOP to govern by tweet. MTG, DT & ALL other elected nuisances who get booted from Twitter for inciting fascism created the precedent for their own exclusion, not just from social media but public office. If social media’s really supposed to be a free market of ideas and conservatives really love free markets as much as they say they do, they should be able to let the chips fall where they may, but they can’t/won’t b/c they’re still butthurt that fascism lost the 2020 election. 🥴

FYI, this is basically the same argument made by segregationists in opposition to the integration of public schools post Brown v. Board. The GOP knows its bigoted base has a muscle memory for despising the mitigating hand of the federal government & public school system. #JimCrow Also it’s no coincidence that they’re stirring up a shit storm about CRT, LGBTQ, BLM and abortion simultaneously. They wage a culture war on every front possible b/c hatred and oppression of marginalized groups is what unifies Republican voters to GOTV. #SouthernStrategy101👺🤡👹

By all means I’m a Black Texas Democrat so I could literally write the book on national D neglect of not only Texas Democrats but Democrats in EVERY “former” Confederacy, current Jim Crow, “red”/purple state. We don’t take our ball and go home, we don’t boo louder than we #VOTE. No, this is the thing. If a Black woman descendant of Jim Crow survivors who’s well steeped in the community organizing tricks of the trade that have been passed down since slavery to the most reliable Democratic voting bloc in American history isn’t apathetic, why are y’all?

I love how folk (mostly White) on the left want whole ass gigantic mountains, the heavens & the 🌍 to be moved to expedite the prosecution of Trump’s cabal but when we asked y’all to police your White peeps away from voting for him in the 1st place, y’all couldn’t be bothered. 😒 We’ve literally been warning y’all that this shit was a Klan kleptocracy disaster just waiting to happen for not just years or decades, but CENTURIES. Y’all’s sense of urgency & justice is still hampered by your myopic privilege so you fail to realize that we’re already TOO LATE.

The GOP better damn well hope & pray Clarence Thomas is “just” hiding from his dumpster fire of a wife’s text message treason because the way the actuarial tables and his karma are set up… 🥴 “Just” hiding takes the lead…

Reminder: the word abortion does not appear in the Bible. Since we’re on the subject of Republican hypocrisy/misogyny/racism/homophobia/transphobia (and other assorted SCOTUS confirmation bullshit), here’s a throwback to the Keg Stand Kavanaugh tantrums they tolerated without uttering a single objection. 🧾 #KlanBehavior #WeBeenKnew

It might be unpopular but it’s also true that the EXACT same nuance is required to understand why the Black American voting majority enthusiastically supported both the “crime bill” in 1994 AND Bill & Hillary Clinton from the 90s until now. Feels like I’ve mentioned this blindspot umpteen times before, but here it goes again for the nosebleed seats. People need to understand that “defund the police” rhetoric on the far left inevitably catalyzes White fearmongering about Black “lawlessness” on the far right. 🙃

Thread of 🔥 Alert 🚨💣🕯🚀🔔 The thing that’s always struck me about this (not only as a Black woman but also as a psychiatrist IRL who’s literally tasked with helping people cope with stress, illness and the ups & downs of life) is the Black woman savior complex of it all. It’s subconscious but ubiquitous.
