    Wonderful visits to the W.E.B Dubois Museum in Accra and Liberation Square. It is @vp Harris’ belief that African ideas and innovations will shape the future of world and I’m proud to be on this historic trip to Ghana furthering that narrative.

    “It’s a great signal for @VP to come to Ghana, to come to Africa and be that interface to show rest of world that actually it’s a fantastic place to look at in terms of partnership & investment…I was invited to the African Leadership summit to add some razzmatazz”

    For those asking, Vice President Kamala Harris is wearing a dress by Monique Lhuillier.

    Madam Vice President Harris is THEE GOAT! (@flywithkamala) tweeted at 7:49 PM on Mon, Mar 27, 2023:
    The question was whether VP Kamala Harris’s trip to Ghana is to strengthen the ties between the nations or more about combating China and Russia’s growing influence on the continent.

    The answers by @VP and President Akufo-Addo were absolutely perfect.

    Things that did _not_ kill kids today: – a renaissance sculpture – a film about Ruby Bridges – drag queen story time – the word ‘tampon’ – critical race theory – woke banks – saying that Rosa Parks was Black – gender-affirming care – ‘The Bluest Eye’
    What did: -an AR-f––ing-15

    This is exactly what the adultification of Black children does. Little Black children shouldn’t be protected from racism, but little Johnny and Janie are “too young” to learn such things, despite it often being their own family members teaching them.

    I think their end game is to dismantle state curriculum standards. Once they privatize schools they can stop teaching some students to read all together and teach them to do low skilled manufacturing labor.

    I see some are bothered that Harry entered the court via the main entrance. According to them, he should’ve gone through a private entrance. I am here to tell you idiots that he is not a thief so he can walk wherever he likes. He’s not hiding. Carry on crying 😢

    The movie “Ruby Bridges,” about a 6-year-old who integrated New Orleans schools in the 1960s, has been a staple of Pinellas County Black History Month school lessons.

    It’s being removed after a parent complained about it.

    Conservatives are targeting suburban school boards. And the elections are becoming political battlegrounds.

    The rise of those groups — many of which have ties to conservative megadonors and dark money organizations — during the COVID-19 pandemic has in turn stirred up Illinois Democrats and teachers unions. Backed by the bully pulpit and bank account of billionaire Gov. J.B. Pritzker, the state Democratic Party is wading into school and library board races in an unprecedented way this year, with a plan to spend nearly $300,000 supporting 84 candidates and opposing 74 across 17 counties. It’s a move that has raised concerns about injecting more money and partisanship into local elections for volunteer positions.


    Glad that they are fighting back.

    Medicaid has historically only been used to pay for medical expenses, but that’s changing as officials acknowledge the link between housing and health care. Now California is looking to join Arizona and Oregon in using Medicaid money for housing.

    Daily Mail publisher ANL has worked hard to keep the full scale of the unlawful information gathering allegations from being made public, but Prince Harry and his 6 co-claimants are ready for their day in court. Clearly catching much of the UK media flat-footed. #PrinceHarryVsANL

    Prince Harry is taking on the powerful UK press that even the Royal Family is scared of.

    Hugh grand said “These big newspaper owners are living above the law….No one dares to take them on in Britain because they’re so scared of them, especially politicians.”

    Watch the clips of All in the Family in this thread as Edith Bunker stands up for her cousin’s lesbian wife. The episode aired the night before California would vote on banning “gay and lesbian people from working in schools”. It didn’t pass!

    I regret to inform you that the Royal Family’s desperate search to replace the star-power of Harry and Meghan approaches its third year with no end in sight. All hope appears lost. #WeStandWithHarryAndMeghan #RacistRoyalFamily #RacistBritishMedia

    Whyte people doing this. If it had been the immigrant population, they would have been called it RIOTS AND IT WOULD HAVE BEEN ALL OVER AMERICAN NEWS CHANNELS. But, Whyte people protesting about the changes to France’s Social Safety Net? Haven’t seen it on American TV YET!😡😡

    Kay Burley “wasn’t expecting” Prince Harry to be in London. That’s because there are no leaks from Montecito; it’s almost as if all the other previous leaks were coming from people in Blighty…

    The irony of the Mail group publisher requesting “privacy” given the way they’ve demonised Harry and Meghan over “privacy” – which they did not cite as a reason for stepping down as senior royals.

    #PrinceHarry managed to surprise everyone, including the press, by showing up today at the High Court in London.
    I’m sure Prince Harry will call his father tonight. I bet he didn’t call anyone in his family YET because that’s exactly how he managed to keep it a secret. He knows.

    Very glad Harry is here. His presence will help bring much needed attention to this case as the DailyFail asked the judge 4 reporting restrictions to “protect their privacy”. Laughable considering this is a case about phone hacking. They’re clearly hoping 2 hide their wrongdoing

    The British media were not going to report on the case. The daily mail asked for reporting restrictions. Prince Harry turning up ensures the world talks about it.

    The Brit media are reporting it as a privacy case rather than what it is, UNLAWFUL information gathering

    Florida Legislature is pushing extreme bigoted legislation that would:

    – Ban discussions of LGBTQ topics in classrooms

    – Ban gender affirming care

    – Ban pride flags in public buildings

    – Ban university majors and minors like Gender Studies, Critical Race Theory and more.

    BBC using the word “privacy” without including the phone hacking part is very calculating. They know their audience.

    Y’all should help & comment in there you know to let people know what this case is really about Liz

    Prince Harry in London today for the start of his privacy case hearing against Associated Newspapers.

    The irony was the Daily Mail asking for “Privacy” for this court case and Harry saying lemme bring all this cameras so the whole world knows 😊
