michelle obama is a great “everything”.
i am always impressed by what she has to font and say outloud.
one of my dreams is to meet her one day.
as you know,
the united states witnessed a very low moment in recent times.
everyone is either still talking about it or trying to purge it out of their systems.
i’m here for the purge.
michelle obama shared her thoughts via font on her twitter today…
i was having a morning and decided to take a nap because i needed to step away from everything.
so i put my phone on dnd and was outta here.
when i woke up,
i had a million messages asking if i seeing wtf was going on in the forests.
so i wake up,
cold in my eye and shit,
and as soon as i turn on the cnn and saw this mess at the capitol building…
i’m sure many of us have used the hashtag #blm in our social media lives.
whenever a black person is harmed by the police,
we post it in solidarity.
All (gay, straight, trans) black lives matter.
according to wiki,
Black Lives Matter is a decentralized political and social movement advocating for non-violent civil disobedience in protest against incidents of police brutality and all racially motivated violence against black people.
i saw the following tweet and it left me with a question…
i’m gonna say a controversial statement:
Not all white folks are evil.
not all white folks want to see the destruction of blacks.
many realize their privilege and use it when fighting for equality.
there was a story of how marilyn monroe helped ella fitzgerald book a particular club gig.
she called the owners and told them to hire ella for a week and she’d sit front row every night.

jane fonda is out here doing her thing with her privilege.
“Because we’re white, we have had privilege. Even the poorest of us have had privilege. We need to recognize that, and we have to understand what it is that keeps racism in place: the policies, redlining, banking policies, mortgage policies.” — @JaneFonda pic.twitter.com/HcQmihaF3v

she appeared on “the view” today and had joy behar stuttering.
jane was asked about defunding the police,
where joy thinks is problematic,
a couple years ago,
there was an article that was written about a powerful white hyena who was moonlighting as a movie mogul.
it spoke about how he would use his power to make actresses do unspeakable things for roles in his movies.
even though one black actress spoke out,
it was the majority of a-list white actresses that helped make his disgusting behavior go viral.
that once powerful hyena was brought down to the pits of hell and the #metoo movement was born.
the end result is he’s powerless,
sitting in a wheelchair at rikers,
while sexual harassment was highlighted in the entertainment industry and corporate.
it’s no secret that black people have a lot to endure a lot within those spaces.
when we finally make it to a company that is “for us; by us”,
you often feel like a refugee coming into a new world.
the first few days or weeks can be absolutely amazing,
but it’s a whole different story once the honeymoon phase is over.
i was engrossed in an article i was reading yesterday by “black female anonymous” on “medium”.
it was a bombshell about what black vixens allegedly go through working at essence magazine…
some of ya’ll don’t believe nascar wolf,
recent tango with racism.
so at the beginning of this month,
bubba proudly wore a shirt in support of “black lives matter”:

and even decked out his car in “blm” greatness as well:
someone couldn’t contain their vile behavior because bubba found a noose in his car stall.
he addressed it on his ig with a statement…
