    Heaven forbid that these 2 loathsome, toxic, self-aggrandizing, 2-bit narcissists …one born to recent immigrants from Ghana, the other to a white Czech mother.. and who for cheap clout and clicks have routinely and gratuitously attacked, smeared, and disrespected America’s historic fully-Black FLOTUS directly descended of slaves.. the epitome of role model and authentic Black American womanhood, motherhood…unassuming greatness …the double Ivy League educated wife and life partner of America’s historic President.. the unelected fully-Black wife, mother, woman who has borne and continues to bear the brunt of actual racist hate …and even post White House, continues to be the prime target of continued racial dehumanization and unprecedented death threats.. exceeding that of all living presidents.. The unelected Black wife who now walks around with a permanent target on her back simply for being..

    Heaven forbid that Attiah and Hannah-Jones, 2 foul, hollow, rubbish, clout-chasing, basic a-hole opportunistic Johnny-come-latelys, who’ve somehow weaseled themselves into the conversation, and have tried to hijack and exploit entirely for their own aggrandizement…social and professional advancement, self-promotion… the long generational trauma of Black enslaved Americans..

    These 2 glaringly superficial, contemptible opportunists who’ve cheapened and trivialized the age-old deep generational traumatic racist wounds of Black America …reducing it to some cheap scam for relevance cosplay ‘persecution’ act.. do not tell or represent Black America’s long generational pain, trauma..

    Here’s seriously hoping that black America is so much smarter than this.. And that this Attiah and Hannah-Jones persons…2 grifting, tragically thirsty, disrespectful, garbage interlopers are not allowed to usurp, or for that matter, even marginally, ever be considered worthy to be the ‘voice’ of anything… And especially not the ‘voice’ of ‘Black’ America …or the tellers or reapers of the real and long generational trauma suffered by actual, deeply-rooted, fully-Black Americans like the phenomenal historic Black FLOTUS that these same 2 shameless, clout-chasing, sham purveyors of ‘black girl magic’, have had no qualms disrespecting and thirstily targeting for gratuitous attacks..

    Attiah and Hannah-Jones.. 2 hollow, grifting a-holes …with their endlessly puerile social media posturing and pocketbook pseudo ‘journalism’… cheapening, exploiting and leveraging entirely for their own grift and self-promotion, Black America’s long generational pain and trauma..

    Incredibly disconcerting that there are those actually buying this brazen gaslighting mess..

    Years ago, I shared with my fam here that as an observer of politics and ‘culture’, that I’d come to learn to suss out a lot of folks based entirely on how they treated/responded to the fully-Black historic FLOTUS.. It was such an unfailingly accurate measure, I’d found… And continues to hold true to this day..

    There was no rallying for her.. there were no ‘hive’ or ‘squad’, paid/unpaid ‘influencers’… out there artificially boosting/fluffing her up.. Nor were there any ‘feminists’, ‘black defenders/protectors’, or ‘liberals’, ‘white allies’ fighting battles on her behalf.. Even though some were fighting twitter battles on behalf of her politician hubby…And just as many of them were hoping that his fully-black wife would disappear..

    How amusing to watch and listen these days as some of the very same/worst offenders who unprovoked, baselessly and mercilessly attacked, maligned, insulted and poked their fingers in the eye of the unpretentiously great Black woman who became America’s historic FLOTUS, are now the most raucous of self-styled ‘warriors’ for women and the black race ..and ‘women of color’… LOL..

    Even as they still resent…and covertly and overtly continue to attack my historic black FLOTUS.. until and except when they need to buoy one of their ‘faves’… and then demand that she immediately show up and allow them to exploit her and her hard-won political capital which they’ve by the way, done their darnedest to chip away at over the past few years.. the briefest of cease-fires only lasting as long as she’s being weaponized to boost some other person.. But very importantly, only for as long as the general public aren’t hankering after her instead of the people she’s being asked to boost..

    Someday, soon.. all this ridiculous gaslighting will end, and the full story will be told..

    In the meantime, I continue to take my cues from the refreshingly unassuming phenomenal woman that is my historic FLOTUS..

    Miss me with the “Teaching at HBCUs is so important, teaching at black schools is so important” BS!!

    If 1619 Klown really felt that way she would’ve tried to work at Howard in the first place.

    If Coates hadn’t decided to join her she’d be jiggin and jamming at UNC!

    But 1619 and her friends waged a media campaign begging and demanding to teach at the white school, when she could’ve just applied at any HBCU in the first place.

    1619 is using HBCU to mule for her & provide emotional labor and it’s not cute:

    Nikole Hannah-Jones: The malevolent, clout-chasing, self-aggrandizing, race-hustling, race hustle-leveraging, daughter of a white Czech mother… who for years, has baselessly and endlessly attacked, smeared, denigrated America’s historic fully-Black First Lady descended of slaves.. is now amusingly, according to some folk, ‘voice and defender’ of blackness.. and ‘black girl magic’.. LOL..

    Selective amnesia, even in the face of mass deleted e-mails, will be the undoing of fickle folk..
