☕ Morning fam,
Biden Harris is a mess, worse than I predicted. And faster. Black leaders don’t have it in them, not the crop in power today. I don’t think any of them ever had it in them, sans one or two. Look at the condition of their districts and wards. Look at the cities that have black mayors, show me anywhere they made things better. Look at Cori Bush out of the Ferguson protest movement, she play fought harder for issues that are intersectional than fighting the issues that compelled them to take to the streets. I’m watching black progressives ‘process’ Nina losing, Nina joining TYT… Not how quick Nina went from losing to joining TYT.
Boston. Boston was on the verge of electing a black woman mayor, remember? That was the headline last week, right? That’s not the deadline in Bean Town today.
It took this whole Nicki Minaj kerfuffle to put black people on alert… and to let us know we are on these social media platforms at their discretion and they can suspend or deplatfom any or all of us at any time using Nicki as a proxy for all black people.
This is what black people are invested in. It’s time to do something different. Build.
