“Cindy Hyde-Smith is hoping that the worst of Mississippi punishes Mike Espy for daring to become the first Black senator in the Blackest state in the union in 150 years.” A must-read by @KieseLaymon .

In Florida, 1.4m folks won to have their voting rights restored. The GOP then demanded fines/fees be paid before they could cast a ballot. So, @FLRightsRestore  is paying off 200K returning citizens’ court fees! Help spread the word! Deadline is today! .

Flowers are beautiful. You know what else is beautiful? Black lives.

When you get to distribute the latest feature film from one of your cinematic heroes, it is a good day. @ARRAYNow  will release FUNNY BOY directed by the indomitable @IamDeepaMehta  on @netflix  and with select theaters on December 10. Wow. An honor. A dream.

I thought I was thorough, but this taught me not to forget the thumbs! Take a look. And blessings to all today. 👋🏾✋🏾👐🏾🙌🏾👍🏾

White people talking to white people. More of this please. If you’re white and you believe yourself not to be racist, yet you don’t talk to your white friends like this or stand up beyond tweets for Black people... you simply aren’t who you think you are.

You deserved your breath, your dignity, your life. Not to die in the street, murdered by a white cop’s knee on your neck. You deserve our tears, our prayers, our rage, our action. We must act - for you - and for all of those were no cameras are present. We must. #GeorgeFloyd

I’m seeing this all across the country in video after video for a week. I wish more mainstream outlets would cover it. They won’t. They don’t. But we know.

A handy household tip for those who need to get zip ties off of your bread, bags of apples, Doritos and other everyday things that one might need to remove zip ties from.

This needs to happen on EVERY lie. It's up to the press to do this EVERY time. Go hard, y'all. On EVERY lie.
