If anything Teju should be asking why Lupita needed to have all these things in place before she was recognized by the academy. But that requires more than a snarky tweet for an audience that has an even looser grasp on the experiences of black women than he does.
i think we can all agree academics aren’t infallible and some black men really aren’t ain’t shit when it comes to them perceiving themselves as being attacked
those teju tweets for real causing me to check myself like i don’t want to be that black person who’s directing stuff at a white audience then getting mad patronizing when black women are offended
smh just waking up and already madder than a motherfucker
