tweet thread of "new studies" that found things Black people been saying all our lives

@ImFromRaleigh aka Jonathan, holds a Masters in Education and graduates from Harvard this May. He's one of those internet famous guys who often leads discussions that range from determining which fast food restaurants serve the best fried chicken (*cough* Popeyes) to disparities in education. This morning, he launched into a thread of tweets of new studies that describe issues that minority communities have complained of, literally forever. These studies show the myriad of issues that minorities face and how race can influence just about everything, even if we don't realize it. Most of the studies were published in the last 2-3 years showing that these issues have long been overlooked and why the Shriver Center's Racial Justice Training Institute is so important. https://storify.com/WhitneyWJD/new-studies

Too many to list here because tweeters(?) are contiuously posting studies. But I like @ImFromRaleigh's new addition at the very end of this small list

Reviewers will find more spelling errors in your writing if they think you're black
You're reading this article. Should it change your opinion of the piece's quality to know that its author was white, black, or of another race? No, if you're evaluating it on its merits.

BREAKING: New study proves you can save a lot of time and money by listening to Black people. ]@ImFromRaleigh

Also found too many to list on a friend's Facebook page

Have you noticed these two patterns?

One: Because HRC has most PoC votes therefore it will be our fault for ushering in President Trump, because he'll win.
Two: Have fun with President Trump because HRC needs BS supporter votes and we won't vote for her and Trump wins.

So all of us are either to blame or be punished getting the impression now that some liberals want Trump to win. Trump losing, that I'm seeing is most likely, is not even a possibility.
