Dream Hampton Tweets About Jay Z And Beyoncé Charitable Donations

Via Complex

Dream Hampton — social justice organizer, writer, and award-winning filmmaker — just unloaded an enlightening, reality-checking series of tweets. Speaking on the current difficulties surrounding protests, Hampton pointed to one of the most damaging wars being waged against black resistance — a financial stronghold. “Protest is literally punished with tariffs,” Hampton tweeted.

The Decoded contributor also spoke openly about Jay Z’s numerous private contributions to the resistance, indirectly confronting the constant flurry of detractors who repeatedly hurl claims of hypocrisy at Jay and Beyoncé surrounding their perceived silence on the issues surrounding Ferguson, Baltimore, and protests in general. In short, the Carters have — according to dream hampton — privately donated large amounts of money to ease the burden of posting bail for protestors, as well as other equally impactful donations that are simply “too much to list.”

Jay quickly put a muzzle on Ms. Hampton relatively quickly, but as we all know, tweets never die. EVER.
