yanno, it's funny you mention that. i have some thoughts and some time. allow me to meander a bit. a thread shall commence. over the last few months, i've asked a few times "why are we still here?" about twitter. it's been rhetorical and, obviously, i'm still here. i don't tweet as much, but i'm still here. that's even though i don't find it particularly enjoyable and struggle to find others who do.

what’s offensive about the kanye thing isn’t quite his doing, but still...the hypocrisy of ppl using kanye to show black ppl to ✌🏾think for themselves✌🏾while then expecting us to think like kanye. and that’s the part that’s so stupid that kanye can’t be forgiven. none of his new allies care that he’s thinking “freely.” they want him to think like them.

none of those ppl will give my credit for my free thoughts. cuz it ain’t about that.

told you, mcnair is in the meetings to make sure nobody goes soft. troy vincent looks like all the busters here. eric reid looks like all the g'z.

this here actually touches on something interesting, but in a lazy way. after @byjoelanderson worked on a piece on white supremacists, he did a thread #onhere that touched on how...unremarkable they could be.

know what's crazy? taking a knee, rather than sitting, was a compromise to show deference to veterans. but y'all just wanna be mad, ha? moral of the story? it's not about what these guys are or aren't doing. it's about who they are. or, in critics' minds, *what* they are.
