Hollywood Tried It-Black Twitter Is Not Here for #ThisisnotUS

by TRN Staff Writers,

Social media response to Charlottesville Virginia was swift and merciless.  Stars like Zendaya, Jeffrey Wright, Mahershala Ali and others raised their voices to speak out on the racism that was unfolding.

 

 

While Hollywood always tries to weigh in on political and social issues, sometimes it misses the mark as was the case with this tweet from singer Lady Gaga…


It wasn’t her tweet, but one of her hashtags that started a trend and set off a wave of reaction the singer never could have expected. The tag #ThisIsNotUS got a lot of support, but also got a lot of pushback from people who twitter corrected her and reminded her that history shows what touched off in Charlottesville is exactly who “US ” has always been…

  1. Black men and black parents listen to me carefully! I know that most of you are die hard football fans. Most of you watch the NFL on Sundays. The NFL’s number one audience are the nazis, klansmen, skinheads and neo-confederates at the Charlottesville VA. riots. This is why Colin Kaepernick is being blackballed from the NFL. That is why Ben Roethlisberger was accused of rape and the NFL covered it up. If you choose to watch the NFL, you are supporting white supremacy. Think about this before you watch football on the weekends. Black parents think about this before you enroll your son in little league football.

  2. Wake up, White Allies, it is you and the US(A). Your brothers, sisters, cousins, children, parents, nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles are the people at these rallies. They are the ones who are at the dinner table, dens and living rooms talking with and to you about how bad this country has gotten because of POC. They are teaching covert and subversive racism and sexism. If you really believe it’s #ThisisnotUS then use your collective bodies and voices to go out and publicly march on state and Federal legislation. Let it be about principles and beliefs, not dollars or photo opportunities.

  3. Lady Throat Gagger is wrong! This is us! This is Amerikkka! Amerikkka has been a racist white terrorist country ever since the year 1492. Liberal white people (And Jews) pretending to be dumb because they do not want people to know that they too are the problem!

    1. Hi NBA is fixed. Exactly…this is us. It was in the 60’s, it was at the end of slavery…it was when Africans were ripped from their homeland and kidnapped him to be slaves…it was when Native Americans and the Moors were stripped of this land. It historically has always been “US”. Thanks for sharing your insight and thoughts NBA.
