This #WorldAIDSDay  we honor and remember the Black lives we’ve lost to HIV/AIDS. In 2020, Black Americans are still disproportionately affected. Knowing one’s status is a crucial step to ending this epidemic once and for all. #GetTested  #BlackHealthMatters  #KnowYourStatus 

Some tender love and care is going into the 76 acres where countless Black Americans were buried and then neglected for decades. East End and Evergreen cemeteries are getting some much-needed help, thanks to volunteers from AmeriCorps NCCC.

65 years ago, today, Rosa Parks defied norms by refusing to give up her bus seat to a White man, during the Jim Crow era - setting the stage for the Civil Rights Movement. It’s 2020 and Black Americans continue to face systemic racism. There’s still work to be done.

🚨🚨Tonight at 7pm:🚨🚨 EXCLUSIVE: Channel 4 News investigation reveals a huge Trump campaign data leak, exposing how 3.5 million Black Americans were listed as ‘Deterrence’ - to try to stop them voting in 2016. #DeterringDemocracy 

BREAKING: UK’s Channel 4 has obtained a huge data leak from Trump’s 2016 campaign. The leak reveals personal data of almost 200 million voters used by Trump’s campaign, which manipulated algorithms to deter millions of Black Americans from voting.

Trump demanded early this morning that the votes of Black Americans in Milwaukee, Detroit, and Philly not be counted. Now he is pushing to make sure Black Americans in Atlanta not have their votes counted. Like segregationists of the past, he fears the power of their votes.

The police who shot Jacob Blake in the back seven times must be fired, arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Congress cannot wait any longer to act forcefully to end the horrific violence against Black Americans at the hands of police.

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...

(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.
