CLICK THE LINK IN MY BIO TO CHIP IN!! —— We are living in a deeply problematic point in history. Even as systemic injustice, racism, and corruption spiral out of control, most of our media outlets still refuse to take a clear stand against them. That’s why I’m so excited to announce we are founding a new media company, The North Star, to tell the stories that simply don’t get told by the traditional outlets.
In order to maintain our independence, we need to be funded by the people. We aren’t accepting a dime from venture capitalists or commercial supporters. So today, I need you to help us get off the ground. Head to our site now to become one of the very first Founding Members. So far our crowdfunding campaign has over 12,000 backers in just 3 weeks! All our founding members will have access to our news products as we release them -- from podcasts to daily video broadcasts and our upcoming website and news apps.
We also have amazing rewards and prizes and swag for our backers!
We’ve set a goal of reaching 100,000 members, because that’s what it’ll take to fund all of the staff, gear, and overhead to build a full-fledged media company. Please consider joining today to help us reach that goal @ BuildingTheNorthStar.com

Jazmine Headley finally reunited with her baby boy after 4 nights in jail at Rikers and a traumatizing, violent separation was forced on them. It’s time that we understand publicly that it’s not just immigrant parents being separated from their kids every day in this county, but Black parents and children are forced to endure this type of treatment in the incarceration nation every single day.
Life + 419 years.
She will be out in a few hours. Shameful. I’m still so pissed.
BREAKING: All charges have been dropped for Jazmine Headley after she was assaulted, had her baby snatched from her, and was then sent to Rikers Island for 4 nights. She’s still at Rikers as her team works to get her released immediately. Thank you to @bklyndefender and @brooklyndaoffice for helping make this happen. “Continuing to pursue this case will not serve any purpose and I therefore moved today to dismiss it immediately in the interest of justice,” Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez said in a statement.
No. @britishmuseum :: you don’t have the power to loan back what you stole.
These don’t belong to you. They belong to Nigeria. Apologize and return them immediately - with interest.
My blood is boiling. Shame on @nycmayor & @nypd & @nypdchiefpatrol for not leading on this and even allowing police to lay a finger on Jazmine Headley and her baby boy. RELEASE HER FROM RIKERS RIGHT NOW DAMMIT.
It’s absolutely horrendous. That mother, 23 year old Jazmine Headley, is jailed at Rikers right now as we speak. Jazmine Headley is a great mother. She was at the social services offices to renew her childcare benefit. She works full-time and the benefit is what allows her to work. She took the day off of work to renew the benefit. In typical New York fashion, the office was so crowded that no seats were left – forcing her to sit on the floor with her son and wait for her appointment. Several witnesses confirmed this to me today.
The NYPD then demanded that she leave the office simply because she was sitting on the floor. When she explained why she was there and that she took a day off to be there, the officers then got physical and tried to place her under arrest, ripping her baby boy from her arms.
It’s an extreme abuse of power. None of that needed to happen. None of it. I blame the city and the NYPD for this – and Jazmine Headley should be released immediately. Her son, I am told, is currently safe with family, but this is not OK. I am working now to see how we can get Jazmine released from Rikers immediately.
Time Magazine just named slain @washingtonpost Jamal Khashoggi as their Person of the Year. His brutal murder was ordered and funded by the Saudi Royal Family and the entire ordeal has been done with the defense of both Trump & Kushner.

Was super honored to receive the Social Change Award from my family at Urban One/Radio One. It’s important for us to have our spaces that we own and control where we honor who we want to honor. And was grateful to have my friend @symonedsanders present it. Thanks to my homie @qparker112 for taking the photo.
