It should also be considered in the context of black farmers being excluded from agri capital and lending programs, abuse of the legal system to take land from black families 1900-1975ish, & redlining, restrictive covenants, etc, all denying wealth to black families.

    Kristen Clarke confirmed and either Republicans are eerily quiet or their voices aren’t registering

    It’s just incredible to hear Joe Manchin & Kyrsten Sinema say voting rights legislation needs bipartisan supermajority in Senate when GOP is unilaterally changing the rules in the states to prevent Dems from ever winning another fair election. Total asymmetric warfare

    Krysten Sinema is a ⚪ supremacist. The sooner people look beyond her goofy ass wigs and knee high boots, they will understand she isn’t merely a flakey ditzy conservative Democrat. Like Manchin her loyalty is to ⚪ Nationalism. Unlike him, she needs votes of BIPOC to win again.

    So, I’m on the phone with my mom, and she tells me that some RANDOM Karen came to the house the other day and started SHRIEKING at my stepfather that it was really *her* house because of some letter she got in the mail (don’t ask, idek), and then called the cops on him.

      My mom bought that house when I was in elementary school, and is, as many of you know…a judge.

      Our neighborhood officers rolled up and were like “Hi, Your Honor.”

      Idk what Karen THOUGHT was gonna happen, but long story short, she was escorted off our property. 🤷🏾‍♀️

    Michelle and I are excited to share our latest show from Higher Ground: We The People. Some of our favorite artists got together with amazing animators to remix civics—and the result is a lot better than what we had in school. Check it out on @Netflix this July 4.

    No wonder the British Royals were so concerned about Archie’s skin color and wanted to change a law so he wouldn’t be a Prince. That family and their staff have been racist since forever. I am glad Meghan Markle and Prince Harry left when they did.

    In Tulsa and beyond, Biden tasks Black women with fighting the legacy of inequity <–Let's make sure we rally behind the efforts of #MVPHarris, Sec Fudge & all the powerhouses in the #BidenHarris admin; & for those who obstruct hold their feet to the flame

      LOL.. As if..

      And the Orwellian snookering continues.. paid 2-bit fluffer, the Dem edition, ensues..

      And just like that.. we’ve gone from a dangerously corrupt, insane Orwellian set-up complete with shameless, grifting fluffers, to whatever this desperately laughable farce of a movie is… couched and cheaply dripping in that now sadly bastardized, heavily trafficked, seriously misused, glaringly exploitative/manipulative, forced, ‘black women’ narrative.. that’s only served to hijack, force-feed, distort, deceive, strangle, dissemble, grift, trivialize, cheapen..

      Selective amnesia galore.. shuffling the proletariat from one cheap Tupperware party from hell, to the next.. albeit, with some modicum of ‘normality’ and semblance of return to, resumption of conventional governance after 4 nightmarish years of whatever that bloody insanity was..

      But it’s still revisionism…still gaslighting… and it’s all just so unbelievably blatant.. LOL..

      And courtesy of pay-to-play, 2-bit social media ‘influencers’, no less.. hired to ‘cheerlead’, and paid for their ‘enthusiasm’, agenda-driven selective faux ‘outrage’, endless attempts at embellishing, glossing over.. justifying and pushing all manner of bullsh*t entirely in service to their person and ‘adjacents’.. so brazenly repackaging and selling all manner of un-kosher folk and un-kosher stuff as suddenly now ‘good’, ‘cool’, competent, and even, ‘aspirational’.. LOL..

      And there’s the other more ‘established’ straddling clout chasers …the usual suspects. the pen/mouth for-hire suspects forever chasing access and validation.. and grateful to be ‘cultivated’ and perennially featured in installed politicians’ cocktail circuits.. all jumping from one bandwagon to the next..singing for their supper.. And trying their darnedest to help the politician in exchange for access .. and shaping, pushing, specific narratives on their behalf..

      All desperately self-serving, fork-tongued, disingenuous, flip-flopping, wagon-hopping, slithering their way into marginal ‘relevance’, paid gigs, by hitching their for-hire bargain-basement fluffer wagons to the contrived mediocre politico creation who still can’t cut it organically.. so that an ‘online army’ has to be hired, paid, to “amplify”.. fluff up, force-feed the silly masses, literal tripe heavily marinated in now yawn-inducing, terribly overused and mostly worn-out, ‘black women’ isms.. to hoodwink, shamelessly gaslight, mask the rot..

      It’d all be quite hilarious, if it weren’t so embarrassingly obvious.. desperate ..and so damagingly shortsighted in the long-term …fleeting and dubiously ‘provisional’ in that way these transactional antics and their purveyors usually end up …imploding, splintering, turning on each other.. and in the end, and when push really comes to shove.. entirely in it for the grift..

      One minute you’re the racist scum of the earth.. next thing, they’re declaring you better than Jesus.. wink-wink… as they maneuver …scheme …dupe.. scam..

    Biden’s sweeping agenda is designed to promote job growth, so a report that doesn’t show robust job growth would seem to argue for Biden’s sweeping agenda.

    If you think Chuck didn’t ask for this you are a fool. It’s a team effort. He just brought Marc Elias in to talk to Manchin and his caucus. Did you know Marc Elias worked as General Counsel for Candidate Kamala Harris. It’s all interconnected.

    This environment is awful for introverts, women and Black people. We are often penalized on “intangibles” that are not job related. Not participating in “office culture” like gossip, happy hours and after hours work events is often used against us. Not now because no one can. 😂

    CEOs hate remote work because “corporate culture” has collapsed. The support structure made work bearable. Now people realize they’re unfulfilled and overworked. Also management doesn’t have fake reasons to promote their white bros like “team player” or “go getter” or “presence”
