Musk’s right-wing leanings haven’t been a secret, nor it is a surprise that a man who owes his lifelong privilege to being the scion of a white family that owned jewel mines in apartheid-era South Africa might might at the least not be empathetic to Black victims of state violence in the U.S. But his open belittling of Black Twitter and the company’s employees is a different bag: the platform he’s remaking—or destroying, depending on who you ask—has at the very least been a crucial space for the development of the most recent iteration of social justice movements in the United States. It’s potency for amplifying messages is unrivaled—and that’s before you get to the role the company played in the careers of some of its Black execs.
