Shea Butter Twitter is a term that has been floating around “Black twitter” and other Black social media circles for the past couple of years. But there has never been clear and concise explanation of who and what Shea Butter Twitter (SBT) is.
Shea Butter Twitter is basically a loose network of pretend Black “feminists” and sexually confused Black male nerds who troll and gossip on twitter, Facebook and Instagram. And they all try to disguise their trolling behind a false veil of political or social activism.
Many people in Shea Butter Twitter are struggling freelance “writers” who etch out a living by begging for odd jobs writing freelance articles for white run companies. Many of these white run media companies will sometimes prop up members of Shea Butter Twitter to act as the voice of Black society. They do this because they know that SBT will not do anything to seriously challenge white supremacy. As a matter of fact, Shea Butter Twitter will actually attack other Black people who do challenge systematic white supremacy.
The common denominator with most members of Shea Butter Twitter, is they will never talk about independent empowerment specifically for Black society. These people are the main proponents of non-reciprocal “intersectionality” with other groups who generally places white supremacy first.
The only thing “Black” that SBT supports is the use of Black hair care products for many of their natural hairstyles, and their use of Jojoba oil and shea butter. Hence the name, Shea Butter Twitter.
But other than the use (and sometimes they will actually sell shea butter themselves) of shea butter and African hair products, SBT has zero interest in uplifting Black society as a collective. In fact most of SBT has a secret disdain for Black society. And there is particularly an anti-Black male sentiment among members of SBT.
Many members of SBT will try to pretend their natural hairstyles are forms of African affinity. But the only reason many of them wear natural hair is because their white male and oftentimes white lesbian sexual partners think it’s more exotic to them.
Though there are several people who represent SBT, some of the central figures of Shea Butter Twitter are: Luvvie Ajayi, Damon Young, Jamilah Lemieux and Feminista Jones.
Lets focus on these four key people. We will start with:
Jamilah Lemieux is one of the head editors at Ebony magazine, and many people have attributed the decline of that publication to the antics of Lemieux. Lemieux has allowed all types of anti- Black male propaganda to sully the reputation of Ebony mag. Jamilah also gives a platform to other Shea Butters to write freelance articles on Ebony to further promote their “intersectional” agendas. Jamilah was recently on The Breakfast Club radio show where she and another “feminist” promoted their anti-Black male rhetoric by telling the vicious lie that “the number 2 cause of death for Black women was Black men.” After her appearance on that broadcast, many people thoroughly debunked her lies citing numerous sources.
Luvvie Ajayi is a blogger and “intersectional” pretend feminist, and this image of Luvvie here should explain everything you need to know about her.
Damon Young is a Gay Lives Matter advocate and a writer for Ebony and GQ magazine. His whole schtick is being the nerdy-non-threatening-negro who whites can be comfortable around. He writes a “relationship” blog for other Black nerds called “Very Smart Brothas”, where he basically gossips about Black celebrities.
Feminista Jones is one of the most active trolls who make up Shea Butter Twitter. Jones pretends to be a “Black feminist”, but the only thing “feminist” about her is her nickname. Jones could care less about the plight of Black women (based on the lack of tangible things she has done or produced to help Black women), and she has shown utter contempt for Black males. Jones has actively worked with suspected white supremacists who have tried to implement public policies to harm Black society.
So the next time you see SBT spreading their usual rhetoric, you will now have an understanding of what their real agenda is.
