None of what’s in those times articles is what anchors this discussion or what’s in these Ebro clips. It’s just flat black in those pieces not or a discussion of our debt and the ways in which that is being usurped because we haven’t focused on lineage.

If hadn’t DM’d her, given the nature of 1619 project, the criticism from everyone, including her, would’ve been, “well, did u reach out?” I’m kind of tired of games too.

Slavery without reparations is really an American failure. But I hate Jacobin’s headline. It gives & awful impression of the conversation,

There is no space to be just a journalist in life anymore. We tried that with Ta-Nehisi Coates. Black ppl r not chocolate covered white ppl, as says. Our future in America is too precarious 4 anyone to have that luxury. All in or nothing.

And this is part of the point. Hannah-Jones gets lineage now, but she didn’t back then? So what changed her mind? And is it really changed?

White people stood in line for $1500 iPhones for years.

I go harder on ppl who disappoint me. I know from that Ebro video u can do what I’m calling on u to do. Nobody else in Black journalism even sees it, but I think u might. I think u glimpse the other side of what has to happen for us to make a turn in the direction of reparations

U said earlier u don’t follow or pay attention to me, so no. And that video was sincere, and did I also not say ur project was important? Did I also not link to it in my newsletter? But it doesn’t go far enough & u can’t take ur accolades and not engage the real work.

And in the era that we’re in, given the needs of Black folk, there can’t be any daylight between journalism & activism. That’s what’s required for this moment, if ur serious.

Lord, because Kamala’s the only one I saw celebrate ur project on Twitter. For the record, I’ve slammed all of the top tier presidential candidates for their race neutral politics.

I have been seriously & sincerely engaging u here & on a couple of other threads so, frankly, I don’t understand the derision. It’s unnecessary.

And where are the solutions in the detailed? Where is the discussion on the trillions owed? How is it implemented? Or are u saying it’s solved by the “Black Ascension” u mentioned in the PBS interview?

“my mentions are gonna get crazy”, like u said, but that’s the spot, IMO, where ur of the most use. Everybody knows the Right’s racism, but are we ever going to go about the business of CONSISTENTLY giving liberals hell for race neutral projects? R u?

No, what u said in that interview was extremely specific not only about race specific policy, but what differentiates immigrants from ADOS, exclusion vs inclusion, etc. U hit a lot of notes u haven’t been hitting. I’ve read u. I’m not new to u.

But this is beyond what I’m owed individually. U said in ur Ebro interview that class doesn’t fix race. Are u prepared to tell that when she celebrates ur project? Or does ur fight end where the Democratic Party begins?

Do u think ur project would’ve been green lit had we not made reparations a central issue in the Democratic primary? And if it had, do u think it would’ve been met with this level of acceptance? I don’t. U would’ve gotten to pen an essay, sure, but not this. No ma’am.
