#HasJustineLandedYet wasn’t about Justine. It wasn’t even about the rubberneckers who joined in. #HasJustineLandedYet was about #BlackTwitter being fed up with an entire year of bullshit.
This was a year that Black Twitter was told that her children could be murdered for reasons steeped in racism and the killers could get away with it.
This was a year when people learned that our (American) government started treating

This was a year when an administration headed by a Black President worked to give Americans the basic human right to Health and it all went to shit.
It was a year in which quite a few people woke up to the fact that America had Nelson Mandela on a terrorist watch list until 2008.
