Anything that demeans black women is a problem. We must have 0 space for that in what we are creating for our communities. If you are a man and you are insecure of women having power, then you should reconsider your principles.

Beyond overdue.
.@RevJJackson calls on Congress to seat the #CherokeeDelegate: "The U.S. government guaranteed the Cherokee people a seat in Congress. Nearly 200 years later, that legal promise goes unfulfilled. It is far past time for the U.S. to fulfill its promise." tribunecontentagency.com/art…

Favre and volleyball just the latest. powerful white Mississippians have moved mountains to steal $ from the state's most vulnerable. read my article in @SCquarterly to learn how Jim Crow politicians redirected War on Poverty $ to watersport recreation, airports, industrial parks
In 1967, Mississippi joined the Appalachian Regional Commission, a Great Society program that distributed federal money across mountainous states like WV, KY, & NC. There’s just one problem: Mississippi lacks mountains. Essay by @JustinMRandolph: southerncultures.org/article…

Run, Ken, run! 🏃 Ken Paxton is a coward. He is running away from his felony indictments, his FBI investigation and now, nonprofits. And his wife is driving the getaway car. My name is Rochelle Garza and I’m running to uphold the rule of law –– not run away from it.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton fled his home Monday in a truck driven by his wife, state Sen. Angela Paxton, to avoid being served a subpoena, according to an affidavit filed in federal court. bit.ly/3BQ5G7C

Considering Ken Paxton is attempting to block people from fleeing the state to get access to abortion care, I find it quite ironic— almost painfully comedic— that he fled from his home to avoid a subpoena concerning abortion access. @KenPaxtonTX this is Gods will ISNT it?

The U.S. government made an anti-fascism film in 1943 — and it’s still disturbingly relevant today

Interesting today: the Cherokee Nation, the largest tribal nation, launched a new campaign to get a nonvoting delegate in the US House, like DC or PR has. A seat was promised to them in 1835 treaty. House can vote to approve—Cherokee are pushing for floor action by December

Ime Udoka being suspended as @celtics head coach 2 DAYS AGO for having a consensual relationship with a staff member has already received more coverage than Brett Favre being paid $1M out of federal welfare money for talks he never gave and embezzling another $5M 2 YEARS AGO.
