- @thesoulasylum When I saw Pharrells album cover I was surprised, grossed out and then realized how typical he is.
-@thesoulasylum: Black women are not a gay mans accessory to wear.
@jeanclervil always dropping gems
Black life is still a life, period. That’s why it is valuable. -  @zellieimani
Not only is the trial questioning the innocence of Michael Dunn, but its also questioning the value of black life. @-zellieimani
My Blackness is beautiful without the mixture, imaginary or real, of any other ethnicities. - @zellieimani
It’s a privilege to be unaware of your privilege. -@zellieimani

@zellieimani - Being poor isn’t a crime. It’s poverty that’s a crime - a crime against humanity.

The pressure to achieve an ideal notion of masculinity harms both men AND women. #BeAMan - @zellieimani

The MSNBC Melissa Perry host came under fire after joking about a photo of the Romney family that showed Romney holding his newest grandson, who is Black,  on his knee. During her show Sunday, Harris-Perry had shown the photo and asked her panel for caption ideas. The roundtable joked about the baby being the only black person in the picture.

During the show Sunday, actress Pia Glenn had joked, “One of these things is not like the others.”

Both issued apologies, yet the outrage by certain parties took a brutal character, a racist and sexist viciousness . Through twitter bigots attacked Pia and Perry with insults such as “Nigger”, “Nigger Bitch”, “Cunt Bitch”, “Nappy Headed Ho”, too name a few.

The result was the creation of the hashtag #StandWithPia created by “@AngryBlackLady” to “send cute photos of animals to so that her mentions aren’t entirely filled with racist misogynist bs”.

It’s never right to hurl racist and/or sexist insults at someone because you disagree with them. But its something bigots are quick to do, no matter how much they previously claim to be “color-blind”.
