We have Youtube personality Taurean Reign (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoOookRnK-P0tabOv-0dDGg) on to discuss what we’ve dubbed Blue October, a phenomenon that started in September 2018 but is continuing to gain ground going into October: a rebellion of Black Twitter against the Black public personalities designated as the spokespeople for Black America by the White media. The latest incident is Jamilah Lemieux being dragged by Black Twitter for her consistent attacks on Black men and calling Black people “Negroids”.
