And I retweet this as someone who finds the work of many academics immensely valuable, and complementary to what I do, but I wish more academics, especially tenured ones, would call a spade a spade when they see videos like Dyson’s. It’s unserious.

I’ve stayed on task for two years while this lie went unchallenged. I’m fixing this right here. Right now.

Biden believes in a GOP “epiphany” once Trump is out of the White House, as if he didn’t live thru the Obama years, during the outset of which Mitch McConnell vowed not 2 compromise w/Obama, the same Obama who praised Reagan. Either Biden’s an idiot or he thinks I’m 1

We shld be in favor of ANYTHING that feeds families. If we are highly represented in an industry, institution or agency, then our fight is to maintain it. Period. Hell even Congresspeople fight for military bases *JUST* because they employ their constituents. Not us tho 🤦🏽‍♀️

If you have to *TELL* us you’ve written 21 books, there’s a problem. This video doesn’t suggest erudition. There was no interpretive or investigative failing by the viewer, so I don’t know what Dyson is doing here. “Have you read my book?” is always a fail.

Sandy Darity, Retweets do not mean endorsement. 16h
On the old Colbert Report, Steven Colbert offered to do exactly what Michael Dyson has proposed. when he interviewed Ta-Nehisi Coates. Keep in mind Colbert was being facetious.

No. We already have the leverage. All they need to do, Bernie included, is 1) understand that we’re serious & 2) craft a Black Agenda. It’s not hard.

Imagine asking white folk just to be nicer, with no gov’t incentive or enforcement, after having just experienced this:

We don’t talk in terms of “bad guy”. It creates a false choice. The question is whether Sanders has a Black Agenda or just a class agenda, and all I’ve seen is class. But race specific problems requires race specific remedies. Maybe he’s a great guy. I don’t care 🤷🏽‍♀️

This sort of elite careerist praise is meaningless for collective uplift. What matters most— a.) how effective a communicator Symone Sanders is for a candidate or b.) whether she is supporting the candidate with best agenda for ? We need effective people in the right spaces

Regardless of what side of the political spectrum ur on, u run up against the reality that the intended role of Blacks in politics is to be mules 4 political parties and their candidates. We’re not supposed to think independently, critique, refine their agendas etc.

Dyson’s idea is, quite honestly, just a recipe for assuaging white guilt without redistributive nor restorative justice 4 . REAL reparations requires not only government action, but government enforcement as well.

Buck dancing is always an insult. U have a lot of followers. Run ur race. No need to police my page/activism. It’s not helpful. ✌️

Lord have mercy what is thiiiiiiis?! Paying the black lawn care guy “a little extra” doesn’t close the racial wealth gap, nor does it compensate for GENERATIONS of oppression & accrued disadvantage. Has everyone gone mad? 🇺🇸

I’ve no idea who you are, but discussing politics on social media is not “buck dancing”. I swear some folk look to start fights over the oddest things.

It’s looking as if this presidential election will be a referendum on whether Black America, especially, are willing to get honest about Obama. If wins our vote by campaigning on the Obama years, then we haven’t learned a thing. 🇺🇸

I think we’ll deal heavily with the Dixiecrats next week with the “When Affirmation Action Was White” review. I can’t wait to hear all the takes from fam who call in.
