"I was also able to generate realistic results for the prompt “Black Lives Matters protesters break down the gates of the White House,” which could be categorized as disinformation, a violent image, or an image about politics — all prohibited."

Lizzo, a Black female superstar, collaborating with Carla Hayden, the first African American and first woman Librarian of Congress, to use a flute from James Madison, the Founding Father who originated the 3/5 Compromise and also the Library of Congress itself? The symbolism!!!

I have been lucky enough to work with a handful of these directors and from a Casting standpoint, the experience has been, to a person, absolutely incredible. Always respectful and thoughtful. Add me to the list of people who are grateful for @ava. variety.com/lists/queen-suga…

I love the way we love us!! It's such an amazing thing to see.
“The fact that this is the longest-running dramatic television series that centers a Black family really says something about the state of American television over the history of the medium,” Ava DuVernay says of #QueenSugar, which she created with Oprah. wp.me/pc8uak-1lBxIo

When we started @QueenSugarOWN, @ava called me saying, “I have this idea: What if we just have all women directors?” Her vision led to 7 seasons, 88 episodes, & 42 women calling, “Action!” And to that I say, take your bow Ava!

NONE of them. And @reginajacksonme forcing them to answer that question was so important.
"Would you trade places with a Black person?" That's one question that @Race2D founders Regina Jackson and Saira Rao ask their guests — white women. They host dinner parties where the main course is open, honest conversation about racism. (📺: Deconstructing Karen | @cbcdocs)

Their thinking that having dark children still gives them the privilege that may not be granted to their own children is so wild. It's also the answer that is used to say they can't possibly be racist using their children as cover is even worse. #DarthBecky

White feminism tied to desperate need to "be nice"; "niceness" is killing us all. Means smiling, being "polite", not calling oppression out when it happens." 👏🏼 @sairasameerarao Required viewing! CW 2 Black&brown women/femmes who face this every damn day. cbc.ca/passionateeye/episode…

I'm curious. While men are leaving Russia because they don't want to be forced to fight, now that Snowden is a citizen doesn't that mean HE can also be forced to fight?!! Things that make you go.....

I can't wait to see the actual tour.
We just did a DNA test. Turns out: It's 100% that [crystal] flute @lizzo played at her D.C. stop on the #SpecialTour tonight. It's safe & sound back at the Library now. Thank you @CapitolPolice for escorting it. Watch this space for more from Lizzo's Library visit. #LizzoAtLOC

Harrowing message from the US Embassy in Moscow: “U.S. citizens should not travel to Russia and those residing or travelling in Russia should depart Russia immediately while limited commercial travel options remain.”
