White and Asian companies have a lock on the black hair market yet the don't use ANY of the products. This is as ridiculous as dark skinned black people having a lock on suntan lotion distribution. By buying black we can put every non black owner of black hair products out of business. I would gladly pay a monthly fee to support access to black owned products to out community. Put the oppressors out of business.#blackhair #buyblack #blackbusiness #BlackOwnedBusiness #blackgirlmagic #blackwomen #blackentrepreneurs #supportsmallbusiness #BlackExcellence #blackbusinessowner #blackfashion

Arkansas is trying to pass 3 racist Bills The bill banning the 1619 curriculum and diverse education (HB1231) a 'Stand Your Ground' bill (SB24). As we have seen in Florida, that would result in white shooters and black corpses. It won't be different here. They are also passing a Bill against forming diverse groups (HB1218). Contact the below names for the HB1231 and HB1218 regarding education and diversity. and contact Jimmy Gazaway to stop the Stand Your Ground bill SC24. Rep. Jimmy Gazaway

Keijah Brooks recently went viral for calling out the racism in the Kansas City Police Department. Now they're following her. https://www.revolt.tv/2020/11/2/21545763/keiajah-brooks-police-following-kansas-city They'll kill her when they get an opportunity.

Before ordering any books from Amazon or Barnes and Noble please do the work and see if our black sisters and brothers have it in stock. Don't worry if it takes longer to arrive, don't worry if it costs a little more. That is the cost of black unity, and black unity pays dividends ✊🏿. https://lithub.com/you-can-order-today-from-these-black-owned-independent-bookstores/ #buyblack #blackowned

Made Macarons this Thanksgiving. I hope everyone else was able to get some R and R today.

This election crap is stressful. Only suburban moms were interviewed on the news. Their only concerns were about how to do virtual learning better. Not the fear of white and police terrorism, or locking brown kids in cages. I live in Arkansas and it is politically hopeless. Red through and through. Trump is looking like he will win and I've got to get up and teach kids science as if all is well. I should've gone into acting because pretending I'm a-ok with this collected stress deserves an oscar nod.

Because of racism and neglect, COVID is killing black people at higher rates, there have also been constant efforts at black voter suppression throughout the country, moving/closing polling locations, not accepting public housing ID. All the risks, and hassle to support two controversial candidates that have not proven that they deserve their vote in the first place. Why even mention a low black voter turnout if it's not going to put it in context?!

A reporter was applauding the women voters and celebrating the centennial of women voting in America. She forgot to specify 'white' women, black women couldn't vote for another 40+ years. There were constant jabs at black people not showing up to vote, as if it was just because they were lazy or apathetic.

#antebellum is out. My friends rave about it but I really just didn't like it. I'm not saying don't watch it, support black artists and directors. However I would like to discuss it once everyone has seen it.

While watching Chopped, I couldn't help but notice a resemblance between chef#marcussamuelsson and#KwameTure (Stokely Carmichael).

Fayetteville AR is building 30 million dollar police station across the street from the black community. It's a food desert, how about a grocery store, or a rec center something we can use! We're protesting but there's too much money involved. looks like a done deal. 💔

Minister CT Vivian was born a year before Malcolm X, and 5 years before Dr King. Malcolm, Martin and the many others murdered in the struggle may not have lived to see 2020 but it is plausible that they could have, as they had several years stolen from them. This shows what#whitesupremacy has taken from the families of the slain, us, America, and the world.

Rest in Power Congressman Lewis. You've spent a lifetime fighting the good fight for a better America. As many of the rights that you fought for are being rescinded, this generation will continue to fight for equality. ✊🏿❤🙏🏿#JohnLewis #SNCC
