rehabilitation geez man you ever,think that maybe they're trying uh i,guess she said i guess she said,deliberately still though five to ten,years isn't that a little like maybe,it's just a misdemeanor maybe we can,start there and then if it progresses,then we can maybe make it five to ten,years boys deserve this for everything,they have done to women they should get,off the subreddit twitter a moment and,make a subreddit called reddit moment,honestly i might have to take a look at,that if that's a real thing that exists,i might have to look at it and make a,video on it because it sounds promising,my mama and me no father figure,interesting dude maybe he's just not in,the picture okay not like that,that's not what i meant by not in the,picture i meant like not in that,specific photo

How Black Twitter Changed The World

How Black Twitter Changed The World

think back on your favorite Twitter,moments of the past decade I got these,greased potatoes tomatoes today's,baggage black Twitter where do politics,means black culture and activism come,together online you guessed it black,Twitter black Twitter is Twitter,it's a congregation a community heck I'd,argue that black Twitter is the most,poppin space on the internet but what,kind of legacy has it created now where,can I find someone who's an expert in,all things daddy,professor merited the Klux pretty much a,black Twitter ologist when people try to,juxtapose black Twitter versus let's say,mainstream Twitter or just Twitter the,assumption that they're making is that,white users and the people who created,Twitter are the default and so whatever,white users are doing that is mainstream,or regular Twitter and we know that that,just isn't so black Twitter makes,Twitter what it is it is what drives the,pippi conversations I'd say that black,Twitter has shaped culture on Twitter,the same way that black culture has,shaped American culture for years,the things that happen on black Twitter,and the people who take note of them are,just like so-called culture vultures in,other subsets of culture right people,tend to marginalize black folks and,think what we're doing is gauche or,perhaps out of step with the mainstream,and then all of a sudden imitation,becomes a form of flattery that they use,so they pick up the language they pick,up the an you end oh and we've seen the,same thing happen with jazz rock and,roll hip hop black Twitter creates the,cool starting with language y'all,remember the term,on fleek eyebrows on fleek today's,challenges like the end my feelings,challenge which was started in 2018 by a,dude from Queens named shaggy the,challenge went so far that an FBI,fugitive dances way across the tarmac,after being captured y'all and,live-tweeting black twitter loves a good,live tweeting session scandal totally,made live tweeting a thing and now every,pop in show or movie has a hashtag I,don't think there's anything that can,top it is the day that Yahoo News,tweeted that Donald Trump wanted a,bigger Navy only they got the N and the,B he's mixed up and so black Twitter,took off and created the so called in,word maybe you know we took something,that is a slur that is still very,contested in terms of its use and we had,a field day with the jokes,Clark says that regardless of the,shenanigans black twitter is also a,space for civic engagement what I do,think black Twitter has the ability to,do is to foster in people the same sort,of sense of responsibility that our,black ancestors had when they created,freedom's journal the first newspaper,published by two free black men in the,United States when Ida B Wells created,the red record and documented lynchings,across the country that same spirit is,being witnessed via black Twitter when,someone says I see something that is,wrong and I believe I can do something,about it by using a tool of the media,some of those long doings that Clark,refers to are police violence towards,people of color over the decade black,Twitter has notably disseminated footage,and information about violence against,black and brown bodies like in the cases,of Eric Garner's death by chokehold and,Chandra blades encounter with police,which led to her mysterious death in,jail but Clark says that this activism,on Twitter doesn't just document police,violence and that it also includes,calling for accountability within our,own community we see you hashtag mute,our Kelly voices on black Twitter have,been a catalyst for change,viral hashtags like April rains,oscarssowhite Tirana burps me to kishan,Thompson's black girl magic and who,could ever forget black lives matter,which grew into a global social justice,movement against police brutality and,was created by three black women,hashtags like these shifted the cultural,landscape made the media pay attention,to the ways black people are treated in,this country and changed how we,discussed in justices against our people,both leur and activist feminista Jones,is what one would refer to as a Twitter,og she knows about injustice is faced by,women all too well and in 2014 created a,hashtag ul cases to take a stand against,street harassment tell us the story,behind you okay sis I was actually out,with my son and we were walking and,there was a young woman and she couldn't,be more than 22 23 and she was pushing a,stroller and a man approached her trying,to sell his music and she was polite and,was like I you know no thank you,but he kept following her you could see,she's uncomfortable but she's trying not,to make a scene and he grabs her arm and,I just was like are you okay sis because,I was like I'm tired of us just not,saying anything I went home and it told,the story on Twitter and I just got to,this point I put out a call to action I,was like can we just do something this,summer can if you see someone being,harassed can you just asked if they're,okay on another note,yo

The Power of Black Twitter (feat. Michael Harriot) - Beyond the Scenes | The Daily Show

The Power of Black Twitter (feat. Michael Harriot) - Beyond the Scenes | The Daily Show

hey welcome to beyond the scenes the,podcast that goes deeper into segments,and topics that originally aired on The,Daily Show with Trevor Noah look this,this is what you got to think of this,podcast is all right this podcast is,like a full stack of pancakes drizzled,with maple syrup you just can't have one,you know you'd be a brunch and then you,order an extra plate for the table so,you can share it with all your friends,that's what we are now I'm Roy with Jr,and we're here to talk about a piece,that I did in 2017 called black guy on,America on black Twitter,wrote a clip for decades the black,barbershop has been the epicenter of,black cultural discussion but the,internet has changed things let me,introduce you to Black Twitter black,Twitter is an entire I think we need,somebody more qualified let's go with,Jamila Lemieux executive writer and most,importantly black person Jamila what is,black Twitter it's just really an,extension of how we communicate in our,neighborhoods and our barber shops and,our churches and our schools it is our,village think of black Twitter as Harlem,black folks made it cool and now white,people trying to move in what we do on,social media and of course we over index,and we use it more than anybody else and,we use it on mobile which means we have,it you know by our side 24 hours a day,that's right while we make up just 12,percent of the U.S population 25 of,American Twitter users are black and,they're three times more likely to post,daily on Twitter than white people today,I'm joined by fellow FAMU alumni and,associate professor in media studies at,Northeastern University Madam Meredith D,Clark welcome to be on the scenes how,you doing today I'm doing well thank you,for having me well thank you thank you,for being here also joining us is a,brother who is a writer at the Grio and,he does a lot of hard work on the ground,and he also starts up a lot of mess on,Twitter and you know every now and then,have them folks mad he dropped knowledge,and then he'll pivot right into having a,mad and stance him as if it's anybody,who knows about engaging with black,Twitter it's the homie Michael Harry,Michael how you doing man I'm great man,thanks for having me man I appreciate,you all for being here now let's go,ahead and be real about this we know,what type of show we on we know what,type of audience The Daily Show is,that's part of why we did the black,Twitter piece at the time when,conversations around Blackness were,starting to you know really permeate you,know on social media a lot more so,Meredith for our listeners who don't,know can you define what black Twitter,is and explain the origins of it,absolutely so I tell people there's no,special Knack there's not a separate,platform there's not a special portal,that you can go to to get to Black,Twitter uh this club Illuminati you know,there's there's no secret handshake that,will get you into black Twitter but,there are two ways of thinking about it,the short version uh that I tell people,black Twitter is black people on Twitter,being black on Twitter like being our,black selves having a good time doing,what we do the long answer is that black,Twitter is a series of black communities,of folks who are linked together talking,about things that are of concern to our,various communities and I really stress,that plural idea of community so,everything from racial Justice which,we've seen a lot of conversations about,um to what it's like to be on the dating,market today we got a lot of,conversations about relationships so,every single way that people can come,together and be connected uh from Greek,life and HBCU life to just being black,living in a certain part of the country,or a certain part of the world that is,black Twitter,also food is a lot of food critique,definitely on black Twitter struggle,plates if you post a plate of food you,know you might break your Grandmama's,heart because black Twitter pulls no,punches none mayor Keisha could tell us,okay,okay I mean I'm not wrong,it's interesting because you know there,can be days on Twitter where it is,something as simple as I can't believe,you put mayonnaise on a hot dog and the,next day it's should you spend 200 on a,first date and then the next day it's,free Brittany Griner,and all three of those conversations,happen with the same level of ferocity,and engagement and God bless your soul,if you ever find yourself on the wrong,side of some of that stuff we call that,getting ratioed we'll break that down,you know on another podcast but you know,this piece was set the piece that we did,it was we decided to set it in a barber,shop because we felt like the barbershop,you know in a sense for Black Culture is,one of the many public squares that we,have within the black community and so,you know you know for Michael you know,how is black Twitter a part of a history,of community spaces and Publications for,black people together and share their,stories well you know in a sense it is,like the barbershop you

uh, those of you who haven't,noticed, or you haven't been around.,Um, testing out this kind of voice over type video.,Let me know down in the comments.,If it's something you like, you hate, I'm just looking for feedback.,So I know what direction to take the channel.,All right.,But getting back to queen Elizabeth death.,So today we're seeing a lot of tweets like this.,Where this one from a woman named Rachel says I'm really enjoying unfollowing.,All the people who seem to be delighting in a woman's death and,her families and nation's pain.,This isn't the time to prove how far left you are.,And something that you'll notice as we dive a little,bit deeper into this topic is.,This is kind of an ignorant tweet.,There are so many of us who don't experience what others have experienced.,So we think that people are just being cruel or they're trolling.,And what we really need to be asking is why it's really easy to,reduce this down to people just being terrible, awful evil people.,Right.,But I believe we need to take a step back and ask ourselves, why,are people reacting this way?,Why are their people.,Celebrating something as tragic as a death, right.,When we look at it like that, when we do a little bit of research and we,start asking the right questions, We start to uncover things that we never,knew because they never affected us.,And that's kind of a larger problem as a whole, as we often think,If something isn't happening to us, then it must not be affecting other people.,And when I was actually researching this very video, I,literally saw somebody say this.,They said, what the queen did, did not affect me or my family, which means.,Uh, this was a white person.,They said it did not affect me.,So I don't mind.,Right.,So there's, it's none of my business.,And that that just kind of sums up.,It's kind of individualistic, just how separated we are as a world.,Right.,It's not affecting me.,So what's the big deal.,And that is just kind of a nasty way to live.,So earlier.,And it probably still is trending black.,Twitter was trending.,And at the time that I took this screenshot right here,,it had over 441,000 tweets.,And I guarantee because there was a few hours ago, I,guarantee by now it's probably.,Even much more.,Right.,So why is black.,Twitter trending.,Well, it's probably because of this.,Or this.,Or this.,Or this.,But meanwhile with sweet C tweets, like the one we started this video off,with about Woman on following people.,Or there's this tweet right here from someone named Brigitte Gabriel saying,president Trump and queen Elizabeth.,The second, we're very close.,Pray for both families during this time of grieving.,And then this is a tweet that really caught my eye because it said making fun,of queen Elizabeth death is pure massage Nate at his finest when Betty White died.,People wouldn't dare make a joke about something so tragic.,So why is this any different?,And first off, let's just discuss how that doesn't make sense.,He says it's misogynistic, but he says people weren't doing the same thing.,To Betty White.,So if Betty White was a man that would make sense based on the way.,He started this, but he's, he ended in a much different way, so it's kind of,nonsensical, but I think this reply.,To this man's Tweed.,Makes a lot of sense and it helps kind of explain a few things.,So this guy do, he said, When Betty White occupied my country for 200,years, pillaged, our resources sent half of our men to die in war.,And the other half to die in sugarcane plantations.,Cut off the thumbs of traditional artists.,And let the Bengals starve to death, all laugh at her death too.,So this is what I was talking about when we're saying, just because,something doesn't affect us doesn't mean it's not affecting other people.,Some of us have the privilege to see things through rose,,clever colored glasses.,For example, we'll see this with policing.,If you.,Uh, or a white person, you get to see the police as, you know, saviors and helpful.,And that doesn't m

twitter i i'm,literally trying to figure out how to do,this video let me wake up tomorrow and,my youtube account is still standing but,black twitter is going,in,black twitter is going in oh my gosh so,you already know the news the queen has,passed away queen elizabeth the second,the longest living,monarch um over,britain or whatever it is this week girl,she reigned for what 70,plus years um she died at 96 today on,september 8 2022,considering all the controversy and all,the things has been going on especially,with,meghan markle and the colonialism of the,british empire over the last,like what centuries like girl i don't,even know how you said it but like you,know how the british monarchy was,participating in slave trade and,colonizing,several like countries and stuff like,girl black folks have kind of taken this,moment as,like with some black i'm not gonna say,all black folks there's some black folks,like oh my god you know death is a,terrible thing that uh,i've always been one of the folks that,you know,when you do wrong while you are alive,people can criticize you when you are,dead dead like that's just the nature of,things like the criticism does not stop,after you pass away like you don't get,your your stuff forgiven and all the,other stuff that's why i don't believe,in certain things that's why i don't,consider myself religious that's why i'm,an atheist i just don't like girl you,gonna get this work,and you know,i think we're,a lot of us unfortunately are,conditioned to have sympathy for this,older white lady who smiled and who had,grace and also you know disney and,everybody else making the monarchy look,so beautiful with oh everybody can be a,princess a queen a king and all this,other stuff and it's just like these,folks have caused harm to black and,brown folks around the world,like i'm reading an article back in um,from,who's the guardian back in 2010 the,queen requested a poverty grant to help,her palaces but was refused but was,refused because government ministers,feared it would cause a public relations,backlash it was reported today now this,was in february 24 2010 in an effort to,cut the royal,household soaring electricity and gas,bill senior aide wrote to the department,for culture media and sport in 2004 to,ask if the queen would be eligible for a,handout from a,60 you know meal pounds or whatever it,is energy saving fun like this is,this there are so many articles there's,so much stuff if you're one of those,people who are like confused and trying,to figure out why is everybody's you,know quote-unquote celebrating and why,is everybody laughing at it you need to,be doing your research you need to be,figuring out like why like don't come on,and be mad at folks for laughing do your,research like this this is the purpose,of me doing this video i'm not gonna,like i don't i don't have the,infrastructure or the resource to do a,whole series about the british monarchy,but i will tell you there's a show on,netflix called uh what is it called,explain it's one of my favorite shows on,netflix one of my favorite shows period,um where they did an episode about the,british monarchy and they just explained,they do a couple of things talking about,a lot of stuff but the british monarchy,is um you know like responsible for a,lot of death a lot of harm a lot of like,injustices across the world um and,this woman was a participant in that she,was like she was the head of state like,she was the one like benefiting from all,of this like this is not your disney,story of princesses and princess and,stuff you know doing all these good,things this is not the diaries um the,princess diaries this is not that like i,know we've been conditioned like there's,consuming the media we think that these,folks have not caused harm but we have,to also look at who's been producing and,putting out this content uh why people,have been putting out and this is from,their eyes they don't see the injustices,that have you know been occurred by the,british monarchy they're telling it from,their perspective they're not telling,from ours like we don't show the same we,don't share the same identities and,stuff we don't share the same,experiences so yes the british,government has been you know extremely,the british monarchy has been extremely,harmful to black and brown folks there's,just so much like so much information,about it for those who are asking the,questions and stuff now i don't know,i've been kicking,the tweets have been like the tweets,have been rolling out like girl,especially from jason lee back well,jason lee hasn't tweeted anything but,you know jason lee a couple of months,ago back was seven months ago saying,that the queen you know she had,she kicked the bucket and come to find,out
