I want to say thank you to my husband - @joelc_m - for leaving his racist immediate family behind in 2017 and refusing to look back in order to protect me. ♥ #HarryAndMeghan #HarryAndMeghanOnOprah

Two things stood out to me from the #OprahMeghanHarry interview: - Tyler Perry offered them security when the royal family wouldn’t. - Oprah allowed them to tell their story when the royal family wouldn’t. A Black man gave them a home. A Black woman gave them a platform.

I need to see that invoice!
FWIW: The Weeknd says he spent $7 million of his own money to enhance this performance in unspecified ways. nyti.ms/3jsXVev

President-elect Joe Biden becomes President Biden just before noon Eastern time, taking the oath of office to become the nation's 46th commander in chief.

Never forget that Mayor Muriel Bowser requested extra police and the National Guard IN ADVANCE of Wednesday's protests. AND WAS DENIED.

This must also be said. This is what happens when one group of Americans are taught generationally to believe they are the sole, true owners of a country their ancestors seized from the indigenous and reaped via the blood and toil of others they never viewed as fully human.

Based on images on TV, the 6 p.m. curfew in DC for the rioters at the Capitol doesn't seem to be being enforced with the same vigor that curfews were enforced against people who rioted in DC last year.

And don’t compare BLM with what is going on today. One group is fight for the basic right to live free from fear of state sanctioned violence while the other is rioting because they loss a vote...

It's so infuriating. Anyone who has spent time in DC in the Capitol, near any federal building knows the level of security there. It is NOT a coincidence, it is NOT unplanned. THEY KNEW.

I’m calling for a full investigation of the entirety of the Capitol Police response or lack thereof:
Super nice of that cop to help a MAGA terrorist down the steps of the Capitol. Are you kidding me?
