The “Great Replacement” is getting attention again, this time from a researcher at Syracuse University.
For the white, conservative “stop the steal” conspiracy theorists out there, here’s a hard truth based on demographics, not politics: get used to not getting your way at the ballot box. America is entering an era of racial plurality, & whites are no longer an absolute majority.

Of course, the point is correct. “Stopping the steal” is a sideshow compared to the fact that conservatism has no future in a majority non-white America. A changing population means removing whites from power. For decades, people warned Republicans about this; the Cassandras were purged. Now, the consequences are obvious to everyone. Just look at what happened in Georgia last night. The Democrats are taking the Senate, thanks to heavy black turnout.
In case you hadn’t noticed, black women have saved America — again.
Gonna spend a lot of time thinking about this election cycle, but two things are clear already:
1. The GOP went all-in on Trumpism and got destroyed. Lindsey Graham should have listened to Lindsey Graham.
2. Black people — especially Black women — saved America again.

Imagine what this nation could be if it uplifted Black women the way Black women uplift democracy.

Please don’t praise Stacey Abrams tonight, and then talk over Black women in meetings tomorrow. We’re passionate, we deliver–but we’re the least respected. Let’s change that in 2021.

The fate of the Senate and power in the United States came down to people of color who want systemic change and white people who prefer divided government and gridlocked government.
That’s your story. That’s your trajectory.

Love Black women every day, not just on election days.

When I was traveling all over the country giving talks on the #1619Project, I always ended on a photo of a Black mom and her daughter holding a sign that read: Trust Black women. I said that if we did, we’d be the America of our ideals. That’s been so clearly born out this cycle.

This woman understands white liberals better than they understand themselves.
Lol @ white people thinking black voters are trying to save “the nation” and not trying to save OURSELVES from your stupid bullshit

Black women almost universally support Democratic candidates. For example, in 2018, an astonishing 98 percent supported Democratic senator Doug Jones and helped the Democrats take a Senate seat in Alabama. Voting for Democrats means saving not just democracy but the whole country.
- “Black women saved democracy yet again. Where’s our moment of gratitude?”, The Philadelphia Inquirer, November 10, 2020
- “Black women saved the Democrats. Don’t make us do it again,” The Washington Post, November 7, 2020
- “Black People – Especially Black Women – Have Saved the United States,” BlackGirlNerds, November 7, 2020
- “Kamala Harris and Black Women Voters Helped Joe Biden Get Elected. Here’s How America Can Do Right By Them,” Time, November 8, 2020
- “Black women and the burden of U.S. democracy,” Virginia Commonwealth University, September 18, 2020
This is just a few of the hymns of praise to our black saviors. Why do black women vote Democrat? One explanation is that they need handouts. A 2010 study found that black women in their prime working years had a median net worth of just five dollars. In 2013, another study found a median net worth of just $200. In 2017, another study showed that older, single black women have just $11,000 in net assets.
In other words, black women are a dependent class. They have the most to gain from “equity,” which is redistribution of wealth from whites to blacks. They “save democracy” by taking from white and Asian taxpayers.
Black Democrats understand that race drives politics. Republicans refuse to.

A writer from The Nation:
The only reason the GOP is a nationally viably party in its current overtly bigoted form is that they keep Black people demobilized and suppressed through gerrymandered control of state govs and keep white people in lockstep with the white supremacy agenda in many of these states
— Elie Mystal (@ElieNYC) January 6, 2021
If Republicans were the white identitarian party of liberal fantasies, the GOP would be a lot stronger.
Here is advice on how to understand your feelings:
things that are not racist but feel racist:
1. couples that are both white
2. a group of people who are all white
3. when you meet your white friend’s family and they are all white
4. watching a movie with more than 2 white people in it
5. having a crush on a white person

How long before all this really is “racist”?
an Asian cast w/ an Asian director backed by an Asian production company releasing a fun-looking scifi film for an intl audience through a major American streaming service where their ethnicities aren’t the focus & not played by white people to make it “more relatable”?

I love a lot of y’all.
I’ll work with most of y’all wherever you are.
But y’all have to do something about the unsubstantiated rage and hatred and fear present in your communities.
It’s not ok and it’s killing all of us!

I’d call this projection.
Anything that discriminates against any group of people (except white people, idgaf about them) is a deal breaker. https://t.co/wsEi5aeWpt

Modern America’s guiding principle.
Some whites are also suffering, but blacks are not likely to care.

That was a typical comment. We’re on our own, guys.
