Solange Knowles Quits Twitter, Shares This Message After Charlottesville Violence

Solange Knowles shared some powerful words on Instagram after quitting Twitter amid the terrible occurrences surrounding white supremacy this week in America.

“F*ck white supremacist. F*ck nazis. F*ck your stale ass bland ass monuments. F*ck asking folks to be graceful.. My son’s first day of school has been in the midst of seeing these bulls**t images that still tell him this system was built to be against him. How mofos supposed to have a fresh start with education, seeing this s**t? Thinking about demanding he not be required to take ‘American History’ because its deep dark rooted ugliness continues to live right now, right before our eyes,” Solange posted on Instagram, before deleting the post.

Solange‘s last tweet read, “Deleting my twitter soon, but before I dip when we gonna pull up? & what we got to do to get my new hero Takiya Thompson free?” Takiya was one of the counter-protesters who was arrested for helping take down a Confederate statue in Durham, North Carolina.
