I really need y’all to watch this again, and understand how disturbing this clip is. Birthright citizenship is in 14th Amendment—which guaranteed the right of citizenship to all African Americans in 1868. Trump wants to bypass that with an executive order. https://t.co/eiug0L13HP

We are spending $80 billion a year to lock up 2.2 million people, disproportionately African Americans, Latinos and Native Americans. We need real, comprehensive criminal justice reform. We must invest in jobs and education, not more jails and incarceration.

African Americans may or may not ever receive reparations, but the 2020 Democratic candidates who are moving in that direction have already given Trump and Bannon a priceless gift. https://t.co/2BigzhzZFJ

Mass murder at a Pittsburgh synagogue. A killer targeting African Americans in Kentucky. The bomb maker. The focus should not be only on Trump, but all who excuse, abet, or stand in silence while hate is stoked for political gain.
