Black people, PLEASE don’t fall for this racist trope that one black person’s (or ANY minority’s) actions, good or bad, reflect on the whole. It’s racist to its core. It’s rooted in “credit to your race” conditioning. No person must answer for another’s sin. #JussieSmollett

Can legitimate news outlets stop saying “Nigerian brothers Ola and Abel Osundairo.” These men were born and raised in Chicago! Imagine the news referring to wht men born and raised in here as Polish or Welsh or Irish rather than as AMERICAN CITIZENS. That’s right, wouldn’t happen

It's become commonplace enough in the past two years that it no longer gets much notice. But it's worth remembering that no other president in decades publicly threatened "retribution" against a television network because it satirized him.
