Her Tweet read:
“Deleting my Twitter soon, but before I dip, when we gonna pull up? What we gotta do to get my new hero Takiyah Thompson free?”
Solange isn’t the only celebrity to have spoken out as of recent.
Today as I saw what was going on in Charlottesville,Va., I couldn’t help but feel sad, angry, and like “what is going on in America?” I had just landed from London and was thinking how good it was to be home. But then I started to think it’s tough when people in your home don’t want to accept you and spew out hatred and negative energy towards you and people who look like you and other people who don’t look like them. I heard a pundit on the news say, “this isn’t America!” BUT IT IS! This has been America since it began looking down on others (Native Americans, Black people, Latino People, Jewish People). This has always been apart of the American DNA. For sure there are other aspects to America that are beautiful, positive and the reason why I felt good when I touched down on the American soil. However, these ugly parts need to be addressed. Yes I felt like snapping today myself for a second but then I thought about my purpose and who I’m here to serve and that’s GOD and The people! The movement needs GOD and Spirituality especially looking in the face of evil. GOD will allow us to respond on A GODLY Level with a Higher vibration. That doesn’t mean we won’t defend ourselves but I do believe that doing the work is our greatest defense. We got work to do in our communities, our homes, supporting our businesses that are for the good of people and electing local and state politicians who share in this positive vision and are down for what we believe in. And if we can figure out the best way to express Love to other human beings, hate won’t have a chance! GOD Bless. Love #charlottesville
The thing that gets me bout this version of “poor white trash” (that’s what the master class calls u) is why pick two losers to model ya self after. The confederate states and Nazis were anti American losers of wars with America. U stupid poor wretched humans claim to be “Patriots” but champion lost loser symbols as your example of unity. Session’ist and WWII Germans that’s your pick to show American pride. . Stay losing losers! Stay losing.
