Christina Sommers, admittedly the only feminist I adore, took to social media to point out that currently, you can’t tell the difference between headlines from the “New York Times” and “Teen Vogue” for what it’s worth.
To our good fortune, Future Female Leaders have created a test so that you can see for yourself if you can actually tell the difference.
Click the tweet below to take the test. (FULL DISCLOSURE: I only got 1 right):
QUIZ: Who Published These Headlines? New York Times or Teen Vogue? https://t.co/toHAteU3qi

For example, the following headlines, “The U.S. Doesn’t Deserve to Make Juneteenth a National Holiday” and “Abolish Landlords: Housing Should Be a Human Right” and “It’s Time to End White Politics” and “North Carolina City Approves Reparations for Black Residents” are hard to tell between the two publications. Teen Vogue is doing a disservice to its readers by publishing leftist gobbledygook, and the Times has become another left-wing activist source for the Democratic Party. For the sake of clarity, the first three headlines are from Teen Vogue, and the last one is from the Times. Admit it. You couldn’t tell.
It’s time to update the list of things that are racist, like ice cubes, chess, milk, Jesus, master bedrooms, Band-aids, skincare products, math, white people talking, white people being silent, hiking, and asking “how are you” just to name a few. Oh, and I hear humidity is being discussed as we sweat. What has to be added to the list of things that are racist?
Follow this thread to see everything on the list.
IMPORTANT THREAD ??
Brave social justice activists such as myself are working tirelessly to expose *all* the racist elements within our society.
Sometimes it is difficult to keep up, so I thought it would be helpful to curate a comprehensive list…

How in the wild wild world of sports is sleep racist?
Brittany McNamara, Teen Vogue Identity Editor (what the hell is that?) explains:
Fannie Sosa and Navild Acosta were tired, but it wasn’t just any old fatigue. Yes, they experienced a lack of sleep, but they were specifically experiencing generational fatigue familiar to Black people and people of color. From this sleeplessness, the two created Black Power Naps.
“It came from understanding that the American dream is a sleepless one,” Sosa said. “ We inherited this exhaustion.”
“We’re dealing with an inheritance of sleep deprivation. Sleep deprivation was a…deliberate tactic of slave owners to basically make the mind feeble,” he said. “That same tactic has only evolved.”
To help resolve this chronic lack of sleep, Acosta and Sosa are calling for rest as reparations. Yes, they’re looking for an ease to the many burdens that might prevent Black people and people of color from sleeping like systemic racism, socioeconomic struggle, and more. But they’re also looking for the opportunity to rest and have leisure time — time that will allow people to dream and heal.
The Atlantic did a story in October 2015 headlined: “The Racial Inequality of Sleep” with a sub-headline: “Black Americans aren’t sleeping as well as whites. Here’s why that’s a public-health problem—and what can be done to fix it.” Whereas this could be a possibility I won’t rule out just because it was published by a leftist rag whose best use would be found at the bottom of a dirty birdcage, right off the bat they want to give you the impression that somehow white people are afforded sleep while black people are deprived of it, and it’s because of the color of skin. Try some Melatonin. I use it every night.

So what exactly is “Black Power Naps” anyway? It’s “an artistic initiative with components including physical installations, zines, an opera, and more.” That actually makes sense, because every time I was dragged to an opera by a significant other, I was always grateful for how easy the production make it to fall fast asleep. I’m cultured that way.
