Tweet of the Day: Sleep is Racist

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 a 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.

We’ve heard it all now…

But then again, this IS Teen Vogue, which, as one Twitter user reminds us:

Yeah… THAT Teen Vogue.  Which, by the way, gave us these timeless classics:

It’s enough to make one wonder how long it will be before leftists declare reality itself to be racist.  Who knows, maybe BLM rioters will try to tear down the space-time continuum…
