    When you look out your window: the garbage truck, street sweeper, plastic garbage can ( with and without wheels), mailbox, traffic light, car auto transmission, power steering and power brakes. GPS, traffic light, lawn sprinkler, home security system, & more…all Black ingenuity

    Please stop letting people with college degrees and the jobs and opportunities they got as a result of those college degrees, tell you that college is not worth it.

    Are men or women saying that?  Men can do manual labor or drive a truck and make a living straight out of high school.  Women without an education beyond high school usually only have an opportunity to work for poverty level wages.

    Everytime Credit Suisse is in the news I remember they had a Black CEO who was turning the company around but the idea of a Black guy running a Swiss bank was so abhorrent they pushed him out.
    So the company fell back into its old ways and is about to fail

    DeSantis’ lawyers are trying to demolish Florida’s broad open records and public meeting laws. They claim DeSantis has an executive right to keep government records secret from the public. All to protect corrupt politicians and special interest groups.

    A DeSantis backed anti-immigrant bill is moving forward in the Florida legislature. It would make it a third degree felony to have an undocumented person in your home or car, even if they are related to you. https://t.co/SvDxcUkM4G

    How often do we have to remind American women that, in Iran in the 50’s, women there were just like us? They dressed normally, went to college, drove cars, had lives of their own. MUSLIM EXTREMISTS TOOK THAT ALL AWAY. Christian extremism will do the EXACT SAME THING. Get it?

    Collins is actually downplaying what a disaster replacing VP would be. It’s not just that Harris personally doesn’t deserve that kind of insult, it’s the Black base of the party doesn’t deserve it & if they think Blk women in particular who do the lions share of party organizing

    Michelle_BYoung (@michelle_byoung) tweeted at 10:25 AM on Mon, Mar 20, 2023:
    2. Would stand idly by & carry on this work while the historic VP is replaced for no reason they got another think coming. It’d be party suicide, a self inflicted mortal wound that’d take generations to recover from.

    They don’t realize, by entertaining and voicing this talk at all, they’re de facto insulting the base of BW voters. Like if y’all can’t see how racist and sexist it is to be doing this for the first female and non white VP even if it never happened, idk what to tell you.

    Did you know-network refused to have Franklin, the Black Character, in the Peanuts T.V. Show. Charles Schultz’s fought back & won. However with the Thanksgiving Special, network demanded Franklin sit at servant table, Animators instead sat him alone opposite all other characters 

    Maurice W (@iamMauriceW) tweeted at 10:30 AM on Mon, Mar 20, 2023:
    According to Charles Shultz wife, he didn’t find out what they had done to Franklin until it was completed and ready to air.   It was never his idea to give Franklin a bootleg chair and sit him on one side of a table alone…It was the studio, network and animators. https://t.co/m8XDYVhTg0
