Amid the racial turmoil stemming from the Charlottesville, Va., violence this weekend, Lady Gaga did the only thing Mother Monster could do: She took to Twitter to ask Black people how “the nonracist white community who loves u” can make a change.

The answers were a mixed bag of emotions.

Using the #HowWeDoBetter, several people readily used the Tuesday, Aug. 15 tweet to gladly gave advice on how white people can improve.


When Have Black Folks Done the Work?

  1. Beyoncé’s ‘Formation’ Is a Love Letter to Black Power, Black Activism
  2. Amandla Stenberg Mixes Activism and Movie-Making as She Stars in Upcoming Film Based on Black Lives Matter Movement
  3. ACLU Blasts Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for Helping Police Track Black Activists Using Social Media Surveillance Productck Black Activists

Others were fed up with having to do the work for white allies.

Still, some vowed to do what they could to support Gaga, who previously spoke about how a Black fan’s plight with police influenced her music.
