Race, Social Media and Engagement

The conversation around the toxicity of Twitter and the hordes of angry social justice warriors who will attack any one who doesn’t understand their secret lingo has become cartoonish. I see emails and posts through out social media warning of the impending doom when trying to be reasonable at the hands of #blacktwitter or another subgroup on the platform. In an attempt to shift the conversation I took to Twitter to attempt to give a different perspective. The following was my attempt at a deeper look into the supposed Twitter “mob” mentality.

  1. Beautifully said! Keep fighting the good fight!

  2. I don’t disagree with a word in this thread. The broader conversation of allies NEEDED what transpired this week. But still, I believe that its time to move forward and what happens next is more effectively affected by your voice. But, I can’t place my desires and expectations on you simply cause you have the platform and the stage. I can just hope.

    The best lessons were always learned after a good ass whoopin.

  3. The post have resolved my problem,thanks very much and hope you writting more good articles.
