If you're as Extremely Online as I am, you saw a clip taking the web by storm today and had to click. I don't typically watch cable news - I don't really *watch* news as much as I read/tweet about it - but I couldn't resist this bit of content.Drop everything you're doing and watch this....cc: @VictorBlackwell pic.twitter.com/N9ZWttHSzd— Yashar Ali 🐘 (@yashar) July 27, 2019 Wow. It's rare to see a news program imbued with such vulnerability and humanity. Often, when stories are reported on, they're rendered abstract - even if they affect millions of people. Blackwell honed in on Trump's use of coded language ('infested') and connected it to his repeated dehumanization of black and brown people. The anchor simultaneously personalized an issue that's widespread and systemic: racism in the United States.Blackwell's statement resonated online in a massive way.This is....everything. So real & powerful. I forgot how cathartic it is to watch someone tell the truth & show their heart on television.— kristen johnston (@thekjohnston) July 27, 2019 Truth can have that effect.— Katrina Pierson (@KatrinaPierson) July 27, 2019 To folks who are asking whether Trump also calls white areas "infested," here's what a search of his account shows:3 uses against black lawmakers (Lewis, Cummings)1 use against Omar/Tlaib/AOC/Pressley ("go back")1 against sanctuary cities1 against Africa (Ebola)That's it.— Will Saletan (@saletan) July 27, 2019 Elijah Cummings’ district MD-7 is the 2nd-wealthiest majority-black district in the country ($58K median household income; MD-4 is first). MD-7 is the 2nd-most well-educated majority-black district (37% bachelors' degree+; GA-4 is first). https://t.co/gb9dBKISlx— KD (@Fly_Sistah) July 27, 2019 Well said! @VictorBlackwell, so sorry for the evident pain caused by the hateful statements made by @realDonaldTrump. The majority of our country stand with you and @RepCummings and against the racism and hate. Together we will strive to do better.— Josey 🗽 (@JoseyRider) July 27, 2019 Kudos, Victor, for representing your hometown on the national stage so powerfully.
