Solange announced that she’s deleting her popular Twitter account but before she did, she let folks know exactly what she thinks about the state utter turmoil the country finds itself in after President Donald Trump refused to condemn Nazi white supremacists who ran over a crowd people Isis-style, killing one person, Heather Heyer, and injuring 19.
Following his disgusting press conference yesterday afternoon (Aug. 15), in which he doubled down on his absurd rhetoric that it was “both sides” who needed to take the blame for the deadly violence instigated by neo-Nazis against American citizens, Solange wanted to know when Takiyah Thompson, the 22 year-old Carolina Central University student who was arrested for taking down a Confederate monument in Durham, North Carolina, would be freed from jail.
“Deleting my Twitter soon but before I dip, when we gonna pull up? What we got to do to get my new hero Takiyah Thompson free,” she asked in a tweet that appeared on her account shortly before it was wiped.
Solange then finished telling everyone exactly how she feels about America’s refusal to acknowledge and dismantle white supremacy on Instagram, saying that she’s wary about her 12 year-old son learning “American History” because it’s so deeply embedded in misinformation.
“Been trying to study myself,” she wrote according to screen grabs the post shared by fans. “Been trying to practice self preservation during this time and not give racist ugly ass f–k bois who reek citronella my energy so that I can preserve my spirit to perform this album. F– white supremacists. F— Nazis. F— your stale ass bland ass monuments.”
She continued, “F— asking folks to be graceful. My son’s first day school has been in the midst seeing these bulls— images that still tell him this system was built to be against him… thinking about demanding he not be required to take “American History” because its deep dark rooted ugliness continues to live right now, right before our eyes.”
