I’m honestly wondering the same thing. I know people on this app are largely acting like school kids witnessing a fight at 3p, but this is excruciating television. This isn’t a good look for the network, who appears to be exploiting conflict for viewership. It’s kinda gross.

I grew up watching Detroit’s @Local4News , so I was humbled they wanted to do a sit down interview with me about growing up in Detroit. Thank you @kimberlygill  for this wonderful interview

Thank you @LibraryofMich  and @freep  for naming my memoir, Uphill, as one of the notable books by Michiganders for 2023. Humbled to be in the company of such amazing authors (To purchase Uphill —> )

Dana White isn’t making excuses for slapping his wife because so many other people are doing it for my him. My latest column for @TheAtlantic 

Is it strange that the Avatar sequel has grossed almost $2 billion and I don’t know a single person who has seen it?

A question I’ve struggled with my entire life: Should you wash towels and sheets together?

The NHL isn’t ready to be a good ally because the league isn’t actually willing to fight for the people they say they’re trying to reach. My latest column for @TheAtlantic 

Just had a Mexican pizza from Taco Bell for the first time. Why didn’t y’all tell me about this goodness???

I need so many people to understand this regarding Tyre Nichols. Several of the police officers who murdered Freddie Gray were Black. The entire system of policing is based on white supremacist violence. We see people under the boot of oppression carry its water all the time.

@CEDtalks85  @heartSFbaseballHistory  says you are mistaken. Policing has everything to do with white supremacy. It wasn’t about protecting people. It was about protecting white folks’ property and shielding them from us. Police history is rooted in slave catching and specifically The Fugitive Slave Act


I have no idea who did this, but if you know, find them and tag them. One of the best things I’ve seen on this app this week

Me, watching people who criticized Colin Kaepernick for his nonviolent protest post MLK quotes today

Isn’t it amazing how upset the police get when you know your rights?

If you vote for Donald Trump, you are a racist. You have no wiggle room.

People need to understand how huge this is. Maya Moore is one of the most decorated basketball players of all time and she halted her career IN HER PRIME to right an injustice. This is just amazing.

@benandjerrys  just put all other corporate statements to shame. THIS is how you put out a statement.

Just remember, these are elected officials and our tax dollars are being used for this

Years from now, the NFL will be embarrassed it kept a player out of the league for being a humanitarian.

Just in case you had no idea what institutional racism looks like

Taylor Swift going hard at white supremacists and Kanye West is buddies with them. Go figure.
