"Roxane Gay on Financial Independence: 'The Most Important Thing a Woman Can Do for Herself"

Note: Growing up in a village amongst the Yotti/Bali people of Northern Nigeria, one of the things you learn early on is about woman power and team work. For example, a smart woman doesn't sit around and wait for her husband to cater to her needs, because we understand limitations that life brings.....this piece by Gay is like, no dub but then many of us have either have no idea about wealth building or simply have abandoned what we were taught. Hence, it is an important article to dwell on. I often enjoy Gay's writing, she is easy read ( of course, in my view no one can tops elder Ngugi Wa thiong'o) but she is young blood that I fancy. Great advice.

"White women kneeling during the anthem to protest “rape culture” is highjacking a movement you took no risks for. You didn’t kneel in solidarity to protest the murder of Black people, don’t co opt & make it about your victimization. That’s white supremacy in the name of feminism."

"Viola Davis wants gender parity, but knows first we must address another economic injustice: "Hispanic women, Asian women, [ Black/African Women], we don’t get paid what Caucasian women get paid. We just don’t"

Note: White feminists, where are you? Am I your sister?

"Jewish organizations across the globe came together in a statement condemning attempts to stifle criticism of Israel ... Of particular concern is the usage of the International Holocaust (IHRA) Remembrance Alliance definition of antisemitism.”

"THREAD: In light of this inane, puerile and vacuous meme, I'd like to set the record as straight as I can. Modern historiography of South Africa has shown, conclusively with scientific evidence, that African nations have occupied this land since many MANY centuries before 1652."

Note: about Land issue in Fake Rainbow nation aka South Africa. This tweet is everythang.

I just donated to this cause, a little something goes a long way folks. If you have $5 please help folks in Flint they still do not have clean water, plus our kids need help.

Below is a statement by the 11 year old activist who set the gofundme.

"Hi everyone. My name is Mari Copeny, I'm 11 years old and i'm a Flint Kid. People all around the world know me as Little Miss Flint. Im an activist and advocate for Flint Kids."

"[ Fulani] Herdsmen kill six traders in Taraba market"

Note: The Fulani violence in Northern Nigeria is on going, I am troubled by the fact that those in office are not bothered. For example, Buhari hosting party for racists like that French president. We need to value black life.
