denzelwelpington asked: Hey Elon....looooong time listener. (Even during the Bassey/John Pitts Wiley days)... You follow me on tumblr, we're Facebook friends, and we're connected on LinkedIn... Soooooo... Will you follow me on Twitter? That's the social media outlet I use most... (@TheCoolTeacher_)
"White people be like" is not a good way to start off a sentence about how racist white people are, because it makes you into a racist yourself, since you are stereotyping a group of people for the amount of melanin they have in their skin, which is something you cannot control.
Hi. Although my screen name is “SocialJusticeForReal” I don’t know what the definition of racism is. Let me talk out of my ass for a while.
Did you hear about douchebag extraordinairePiers Morgan, while continuing his attacks on Trans activist Janet Mock, has started yelling about "CISPHOBIA" since people were upset by his asshat commentary and actions. On #TWIBprime Elon James White and #TeamBlackness have words on the matter…
Piers Morgan is why the caged bird cancelled its cable subscription.
Back in 2008 if you would’ve said “Hey Elon…this little youtube video your doing…one day it’s going to lead to your own studio & media network…” I would’ve laughed. #TWIBNATION is REAL. (at TWiB! WEST | #TWIBnation)
drbethmeyer asked: I have iTunes and Stitcher accounts, but don't use either when I listen to your podcasts because they don't work on my phone. If I were to write a positive review for your podcasts, would it be more helpful on iTunes or on Stitcher - or somewhere else?
Wherever you would prefer! We do lean on iTunes reviews but we’re just happy wherever they pop up!
I’m pretty fricken’ excited. Now that I’ve been name Media Director we’ll be handling the official media coming out of Netroots so I’m hyped for that. But working on the team also means that I can voice concerns about what NN will look like. Members of the #TeamBlackness are also involved in panel committees as well. I think this will be one of the most inclusive and overall awesome Netroots ever.
