I hear the umps are threatening to boycott Serena’s matches. 1st, boycotts can both ways. So be warned. 2nd, don’t be distracted by this attempt to villainize a Black woman as hurting the game. The sexism & racism of the umps is hurting the game. If women’s tennis wants to risk its ticket sales and tv ratings by effing with Serena, I invite them to try. But they should be clear that those actions are the textbook definition of structural sexism and racism.

Nothing infuriates me more than whack white and male supremacist theology like this. Anything that is against intersectionality, critical race theory and feminism is clearly of ‘the devil.’ Like WTF.… It further annoys me when Black churches and Black pastors be on board with this foolishness. Can’t y’all see that these folks have a theology that is anti-Black fundamentally? And anti-woman too. And of course homophobic and transphobic.

A couple of things to say about these raggedy Black preachers who met with Trump yesterday. They went because they have been trained to think that when the president calls this is God’s favor and expansion of territory. #BadTheology If they didn’t go for the express theological purpose of telling Trump he’s a fascist and ain’t nothing holy about what he doing, then they went for ego not for Jesus. To not call his ass out is a failure of prophetic ministry. #BadTheology
