Ava DuVernay Calls Twitter’s Rule “Disingenuous” About People Wishing Death On Trump

lo

Donald Trump and his wife, Melania’s, recent COVID-19 diagnosis have become worldwide news. For months Trump decided not to make a national mask mandate, downplayed the virus, and even clowned Joe Biden for wearing a mask. Now that he has caught the virus, social media has been ruthless, some people even wishing death on him or making fun of his possible death.

Twitter released a statement regarding speech that wished people death on their platform after many tweets came out wishing death on Trump.

However, Selma and 13th director, Ava DuVernay called out Twitter for their response that she deemed “disingenuous.”

“Does this also go for Black and Brown women who have long been and continue to be harassed and threatened with assault and death on this platform or nah? I think no. Because I see those same accounts still up. Still causing harm. Your *anyone* is disingenuous,” she wrote.

Kanye West’s Twitter Suspended After Leaking Journalist’s Phone Number

kanye west claims democrats brainwash blacks into getting abortions

Kanye West has blown up Twitter in the last few days trying to reform the music industry. He has shared his progress, tweeting conversations he has had with industry executives, letting his followers know who he is going to contact, and even putting up his 100+ page UMG contract.

It was kind of weird to not see Mr. West tweet almost all day on Wednesday (September 16). His tweets started rolling in around 5 in the morning but stopped around 10 a.m. It turns out, however, his recent antics have gotten him suspended from Twitter.

According to CNN’s Oliver Darcy, Kanye was put on notice by Twitter that his account would be suspended after posting a screenshot of the phone number of Forbes Chief Content Officer Randall Lane. In the Tweet, Kanye had urged his fans to call Lane if they wanted to call a white supremacist. “If any of my fans want to call a white supremacist… This is the editor of Forbes,” Ye tweeted.

Former Laker, Rick Fox, took to Twitter to let everybody know that Kanye’s account was suspended for 12 hours.

“My friend @kanyewest wants you all to know that he was kicked off of @Twitter for 12 hours,” Fox tweeted.

Right-wing commentator and Kanye supporter, Candace Owens, also let the public know that Ye’s account was suspended as well.

Kanye West: White Media Took Down Bill Cosby, R. Kelly, Michael Jackson

Screen Shot 2020 09 16 at 11.53.50 AM

Kanye West continued his Twitter rant today after a tumultuous social media weekend, demanding an apology from J. Cole, Drake, and Kendrick and even comparing himself to famed slavery abolitionist Harriet Ross Tubman.

In today’s continuum, Ye insists that white media corporations set agendas to take down Black male celebrities such as Michael Jackson and Bill Cosby. The cultural icon also suggested that a Black-owned media company would and could never take down a white celebrity in the same fashion.

Yeezy continued on in this morning’s rant about artists owning their masters, adding his daughter will “do nothing but put emojis up for the rest of her life” because he owns his masters and his children will inherit them.

Kanye West: I Miss My Bro Jay-Z

Screen Shot 2020 08 12 at 11.40.39 AM

Kanye West has become just as unpredictable as his friend President Donald Trump on Twitter, but this time, Yeezy just wanted to tell the world that he missed his “bro”.

In a heartfelt tweet sent out Monday(August 10), Yeezy posted an image of him and Hov rocking “Otis” onstage while tweeting, “Miss my bro … real talk”.

The relationship between Ye and Jay has always been a rocky one, especially since 2014 when Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce snubbed Kanye and Kim Kardashian’s wedding. Jay-Z tried to put the rumors to bed in a 2017 interview with The New York Times, stating, “I love Kanye. I do. It’s a complicated relationship with us.”

Jay-Z has yet to respond to Ye’s tweet.

Ice Cube Criticized For Sharing Alleged “Anti-Semitic” Memes On Twitter

Ice Cube has always walked the thin line of controversy when it came to the jewish community, but a recent series of tweets has the Hip Hop living legend on the receiving end of criticism of what is once again perceived as anti-semitic ideas.

Ice Cube, whose real name is O’Shea Jackson, sent out five tweets yesterday to his more than 5 million followers , three of which included a Black Cube, which he captioned in one of the tweets, “Black Cube of Saturn”.

Critics immediately called the actor and director of the timeless Friday series’ tweets “anti-semitic”, with some even questioning as to whether or not Cube’s account had been hacked.

The original N.W.A. defector vehemently stood behind his posts, stating, “This is CUBE. My account has not been hacked. I speak for no organization,” he tweeted. “I only speak for the meek people of the earth. We will not expect crumbles from your table. We have to power of almighty God backing us all over the earth. NO MORE TALKING. Repent.” 

Cube’s sophomore album Death Certificate, which featured the late Nation Of Islam and Black Panther Party leader Khalid Abdul Muhammad, drew a lot of criticism for what is recognized as anti-Semitic overtones, especially with the reference to Jerry Heller on N.W.A. diss “No Vaseline”, saying, “Cause you let a Jew break up my crew..”

Dear Terry Crews, “Black Supremacy” is Not The By-Product of a Post-White Supremacy Society

This morning, actor Terry Crews was trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons. The America’s Got Talent host was on Twitter Sunday night.

Apparently, Terry was feeling some type of way with all the solidarity happening with folks of color across the globe. He felt the need to take to Twitter to express an unwanted and guilt-laden perspective.

Upon later explanation by Crews, 51, he was trying to say that if white and black people don’t work together, “bad attitudes and resentments can create a dangerous self-righteousness.”

Following the death of George Floyd on May 25, Crews shared an emotional video to Instagram. There he told his followers that he saw himself in the 46-year-old, who died when former police officer Derek Chauvin put a knee on his neck for eight minutes.

“First of all my heart is broken,” he said the video. “George Floyd looks like me. George Floyd could be me. I could easily, easily be that man on the ground with that police officer’s knee on my neck. That could easily be me.”

Pro-Black Is Not Anti-White

There is a popular misconception that being proud to be Black means that you are anti-white. This is not the case.

However, what that statement reflects is a truly enslaved mentality because you cannot operate with that suspicion unless you are co-opted by white supremacy.

White guilt is defined as the feelings of shame and remorse some white people experience when they recognize the legacy of racism and racial injustice and perceive the ways they have benefited from it.

With his statement, Terry Crews is signaling that he has internalized white guilt for white people even though he is not white himself. All one needs to do is look at the front lines of every protest across the globe and white allies are there.

Allies who see their privilege as an invaluable asset to people of color are appreciated by the protest movement. Whether that involvement stems from guilt is a personal motivation, however, the action is needed and respected.

For Crews to create some mythological vacuum where black people are working in a silo for justice is not even close to reality. How he could justify fearing “black supremacy” when the protests are only initial surface pressure shows he doesn’t understand the true goal: system reform.

Feelings on either side will have to subside to doing what is right and if an ego or two is bruised in the process it is a small fee to pay for justice.

Terry Crews is still caught up in the rapture of Black unity optics in a society still encapsulated in white supremacy. If he wasn’t, he would count the white allies in a sea of black faces instead of lamenting how Black the movement looks and feels.

Remember The Morning Rhymes Of Hip-Hop Harry? Black Twitter Does

This morning, Hip Hop Harry was the trending on Twitter because he’s awesome.

Take a step back in time before responsibilities and MSG began to slow us all down. When Cream of Wheat, Farina, and oatmeal were Nana’s specialty and you had to have it piping hot in the morning.

Then like DM’s, slide Hip Hop Harry right in.

Hip Hop Harry was a children’s television show that aired on Discovery Kids and TLC. It was part of the ‘Ready Set Learn’ segment in 2006 to 2008.

For many of us, it was similar to Barney & Friends, Sesame Street, etc. as a live-action program. Using age-appropriate hip hop music and dance to teach social, educational, physical and creative skills, Hip Hop Harry raised the babies.

Consider him the lower cusp millennials’ first hip hop experience. Hip Hop Harry was one of the first edutainment platforms for the culture. He created a positive tone for learning and memorization.

With the proliferation of hip hop throughout the global culture, it was a breath of fresh air to see it starts even at early learning. Hip Hop is the preferred conduit of creative communication for the world.

Hip Hop Harry was the ambassador of that movement for the world’s youth.

You better recognize.

Meek Mill Goes in on Tekashi 6ix9ine For Being a Snitch, 6ix9ine Responds

Meek Mill took some time on Friday to address his feelings on Tekashi 6ix9ine who is dropping new music and planned to go on Instagram Live.

Meek’s Tweetstorm went after the “Gummo” rapper for being a snitch and trolling on social media invoking Nipsey Hussle’s name in the process.

“I hope that rat going live to apologize to the people he told on or the victim,” Meek said on Twitter. “Y’all forgot that fast a ‘rat’ killed Nipsey. He wasn’t suppose to be on the streets! That’s the only thing ima day (sic) because he’s dead… left his baby mom and child like a coward as targets!”

6ix9ine clapped back in a Shade Room comment saying “Imagine having a new born baby come into the world & be pressed about a Mexican with rainbow hair.”

Meek continued his tweetstorm calling 6ix9ine’s new song that he’s dropping today trash. The rapper turned federal informant is making his first social media appearance on Friday to promote his new music and possibly address the last year and a half of being labeled imprisoned and labeled a snitch.
