Black pastor Aubrey Shines says Black Lives Matter and the Democratic Party’s racial justice politics "are intentionally trying to divide Black and White Americans.”

I talked with @feministabulous  about the disproportionate effects of COVID-19 on black Americans, the recent global uprising for civil rights, and the antiracist training required to deconstruct systems that erode freedoms around the world. Give it a look.

As Joe Biden struggles to do damage control for his recent insulting comments about Black Americans, he scrambles to garner African American votes.

“This is not just history about Black Americans. This is American history. Slavery is American history. And we want people to understand that,” she said.

COVID-19 has made it impossible to ignore the ways that discrimination drives health disparities among Black Americans. In the final episode of #PositiveSpin , @feministabulous  speaks to @JamilSmith  about America's two deadly epidemics:

“ The median wealth of black households is a tenth that of whites. The vast majority of Americans — white, black, and brown — are two paychecks removed from bankruptcy. “

The coronavirus has exposed racial fractures in the U.S. health care system, as Black, Hispanic and Native Americans have been hospitalized and killed by COVID-19 at far higher rates than other groups.

"Joe Biden this morning, he totally disparaged and insulted the black community. What he said is was a very insulting statement he made." @realDonaldTrump  responds to @JoeBiden  saying Latinos have 'incredibly different' attitudes, unlike black Americans.

If you aren't retweeting the voter suppression going on in Georgia right now impacting Black Americans you obviously don't care. SHAME ON YOU @GOP  @BrianKempGA  STEALING A ELECTION. You can't have a Democracy if you suppress the black vote. RACISTS.

In 3 1/2 years, I’ve done much more for our Black population than Joe Biden has done in 43 years. Actually, he set them back big time with his Crime Bill, which he doesn’t even remember. I’ve done more for Black Americans, in fact, than any President in U.S. history, with...

Senate Republicans are ready to issue nearly 100 subpoenas to trash the FBI to protect President Trump, but they can’t commit to a debate on 1 bill to reform police departments to protect Black Americans? That is outrageous.

(2/2) Trevor on George Floyd and the Minneapolis protests: “If you felt unease watching that Target being looted, try to imagine how it must feel for black Americans when they watch themselves being looted every single day. Police in America are looting black bodies.”

Here's the sad reality: what happened to George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery & Christian Cooper has gone on for generations to Black Americans. Cell phones just made it more visible. Dismantling systemic racism in our nation starts with demanding justice & holding offenders accountable.

So if African-American unemployment is now at the lowest number in history, median income the highest, and you then add all of the other things I have done, how do Democrats, who have done NOTHING for African-Americans but TALK, win the Black Vote? And it will only get better!

1.3 million black Americans already voted for Trump in 2016. This morning, Joe Biden told every single one of us we “ain’t black.” I’d say I’m surprised, but it’s sadly par for the course for Democrats to take the black community for granted and brow beat those that don’t agree.

Can you imagine if Congress responded to Black Americans demanding to not be murdered as quickly as they respond to billionaires demanding tax cuts?

Unemployment for Black Americans is the lowest ever recorded. Trump approval ratings with Black Americans has doubled. Thank you, and it will get even (much) better!
