We as white & black women and #WOC need to talk! Intersectionality of race & gender is something we must address! The vile attacks by @laurenboebert on @IlhanMN and the so-called #JihadSquad are repugnant for a sitting MOC. My thoughts here: #LaurenBoebert

Our family finally watched #ColininBlackandWhite and it was really good. It really shows how good we can be when we lead with love and humanity. God bless his adopted parents. Well done as ever @netflix and of course my soror the amazing @ava

Two stories about how a Georgia 5-year-old was fatally shot on Thanksgiving Day: her family says she hit a loaded gun sitting on a chair, causing it to go off. Police say another child in the home shot her in the chest. No charges have been filed. #gapol

A man brought a loaded gun to a family gathering in Kentucky, unintentionally shot and killed a 10-year-old … and then left. Shelbyville police are calling the shooting “accidental,” and haven’t filed charges. #kyleg

Rosemarie Reilly knew her ex-boyfriend Jeremy Kelley might hurt her. But when she sought a restraining order, a Kent County, Michigan, judge allowed Kelley to keep his guns. Three weeks later, Reilly was dead. By @teamtrace and @19thnews

@IAmSophiaNelson @laurenboebert @IlhanMN Three words.... HOSTILE WORK ENVIRONMENT .... And there are federal laws that outlaw employees and employers who say and do things that create that environment.

I don't feel great, but I know that I would likely be worse if I wasn't vaccinated against covid. Please stay safe and get the vaccines. Anyone who says we are "post-pandemic" can go kick rocks.

The irony of Lauren Boebert “joking” about Ilhan Omar carrying explosives to Congress is that it’s BOEBERT who literally showed up fully armed to their mutual workplace.

It’s wasn’t an apology she didn’t even offer to the woman she attacked! Her colleague in Congress.

Soledad O’Brien wants to know why national media outlets that spent so much time covering the late Gabby Petito don’t offer the same level of attention for missing Black Americans – especially Black women and girls like Keeshae Jacobs.
