This is definitely not an Afrofeminist response but it does raise some really important challenges, which certainly resonated with me

Is there an Afrofeminist analysis of the Gilets Jaunes? A lot of what I’m reading is...trés sus.

Can confirm Theresa May getting locked in her car is much better when you put the Curb Your Enthusiasm theme over it

Theresa May, who panicked into Article 50, who told us we did not need a 2017 General Election and then called it (losing seats), who said No Deal is Better than a Bad Deal, and then recommended her Bad Deal, now pulls the vote. She is consistent only in failure.

‘Much of our new border security enterprise actually cedes classic markers of sovereignty, and devalues citizenship...Indeed, in many ways, border security policies are ending citizenship as we know it’.

Update: Warwick has said that it was misquoted. Here’s the corrected Boar story: I wonder whether Warwick will address the *actual problem*—the ethnic and gender pay gap—with as much energy as they have used to get me to tweet this updated story.

No, there are 26 Black women professors in the UK. Warwick is using Black as a descriptor for all the women professors here who are not white. What a mess.

Worse still, Warwick appears to be using ‘Black’ as a synonym for ‘not white’, which is...yikes...and rather underscores the point of Rianna’s reporting on the gender and ethnic pay gap.

This is so embarrassing. Warwick has miscounted how many Black women professors it employs. Spoiler alert, there’s just me.

‘The gender pay gap is more pronounced for ethnic minority women at Russell Group universities where white male staff are on average salaries of £55,000’.

Tonight courtesy of , was in Edinburgh to school us on lazy activism. Warm, witty & brilliant, she reminds us that no system that is ‘equal’ can look anything like what we live today, it needs tearing down & tearing apart. Bring on the apocalypse 😉

Q from audience on lack of WoC at Holyrood. Sturgeon: parties need to get their houses in order, esp those who’ve resisted quotas (Tories). Emejulu: if people had same energy for race as they did for gender eq. measures for boards/politics, we’d see change.

There’s this myth that black men or white women can lead black women to their salvation, but neither is true. Rather black women are leading political movements but are erased from history -

On solidarity: we shouldn’t mourn the lack of identical experiences between women - across race, class & identity - but we should accept that difference & avoid forcing some false sense of solidarity. We need to find shared experiences too. &
