@donlemoncnn explores the death of #HermanCain due to contracting #covid19 after attending the Trump rally in Tulsa, OK last month. Although Black and brown communities are affected at higher rates, Don leaves us with an important message — “The virus does not care about your politics. The virus does not care if you are rich or poor. The virus doesn't care about the color of your skin. We are all at-risk.” 🎥: @cnn

Check out this #recap of our powerful conversation with @diasporadash where she discusses anti-blackness in this #Latinx community with host @natashasalford. Dash dissects Gina Rodriguez asking “what about us” when Black Panther was released, the history of anti-blackness in relation to the caste or “casta” system and more.
@marclamonthill weighs in on the recent Grand Jury decision in the case of #BreonnaTaylor — “We've got to imagine a world without police because as we saw in the case of Breonna Taylor and as we see in the verdict, the courts, the police -- none of it is designed to give us justice. None of it is designed to protect, defend, or affirm Black life." For the full video visit our YouTube channel.
So many of us are frustrated, saddened, and enraged at the decision not to charge the officers responsible for #BreonnaTaylor’s death. Last night, thousands took to the streets across the country in yet another night of protests. SWIPE 👈🏾 to see some of the demonstrations. #SayHerName #JusticeForBreonnaTaylor Click the 🔗 in our bio to read more on this national outrage.
#WeLoveToSeeIt. The Liar-In-Chief went to the Supreme Court today to 'pay his respects' to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who is currently lying in repose. A crowd, also paying their respects, decided to let #Trump know exactly how they feel and led a chant of "Vote Him Out" and "Honor Her Wish". We believe #RBG would have approved.

The news cycle this week has been heavy and heartbreaking, so we're happy to engage in a little #selfcare escapism by curling up with a few of our fave Black sitcoms of the 90s. On the newest episode of @dearculturepod, our @willscortney, @callmequeensqueakz, and @mariel_turner get together to discuss the rise and return of Black sitcoms thanks to services like @netflix and @hulu. Do the stories (and the characters) hit the same? How did Black sitcom television influence your life? Does anything else need to be rebooted?

We feel another blow as a community, NFL legend and Hall of Fame running back #GaleSayers has died at the age of 77. A cause of death has not been provided. A five season first-team All-Pro and four-time Pro-Bowler, Sayers’ impact on the league can never be denied. Rest In Peace, Gayle Sayers. Click the 🔗 in bio for more on this story.
This is NOT justice. According to Kentucky AG @danieljaycameron, the officers who entered and killed #BreonnaTaylor were “justified” in their use of force because of the single shot fired by Breonna’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker. Officer Brett Hankison was charged with 3 counts of “wanton endangerment” for firing into the apartments of Breonna’s neighbors. Per Louisville law, first-degree wanton endangerment is a Class D felony punishable with fines up to $10k and up to 5 years in prison. Click our 🔗 in bio for more on this developing story.
