@gillburn @renireni @ObserverUK I agree. It is not an issue to conceptualize, it is a matter of taking actions.

@renireni @MrNishKumar Congratulations. The book was an eye-opener to me. It made me ask the bigger questions about the US, where I'm from, and the UK where I now live and work. A gateway.

@renireni i hope certain people read the article & take heed. no good in participating in these pantomimes anymore, we KNOW they’re trying to bait the audience on both sides into engagement. the only difference is for them it’s a joke, for us it’s constant psychological torment.

@renireni “Being involved in feminist and anti-racist work, you notice very quickly that you have racism but no one who admits to being racist.” - yup. Great article Reni, and a wonderful book x

@renireni @ObserverUK Racism should not be a debate. This is not a matter of opinion. Racism exists and is wrong. We need to do better.

@renireni I'm ashamed it took me so long to engage with how privileged I am. I'm halfway through your book and I'm shocked by how little I understood. Thank you, I'll try to keep understanding & apologising when I don't.

@renireni Thank you for this interview. What you had to say was precise, honest and people should just read it and go and think about their lives! Keep juggling that balance between working and resting. You have earned it. 💪🏿🥰🙏🏿. And congratulations and good luck in your new home. ❤️.

@PatMcAfeeShow #PatIDontWantToOverreactBUT in response to the Ravens discussing extending Lamar this off-season, haven't we learned that you shouldn't extend a player until he gets to his contract year?

#PatIDontWantToOverreactBUT the Brahns win the game if targeting is a reviewable part of the NFL. Also, Packers win the Super Bowl

@PatMcAfeeShow #PatIDontWantToOverreactBUT I think the Bills are the real deal, they might give the early 90's Bills teams a run and lose 5 Super bowls in a row
