#cancelculture is a way for people without power, to impact the powerful, whereas they were unable to do so before. Racism isnt nuanced. She said "black man" specifically because she knew it would have more of an impact, she knew there would be a response to this "dangerous" black man- this terrible individual. She said it over and over. I hope she enjoys unemployment.

There's a difference between a post on Twitter because you disagree with someone and trying to get someone fired from their job because you disagree with someone. I thought people liked former and not the latter. These two didn't appear to make the distinction.
