When #GeorgeFloyd was lynched, there was national outrage exposing a pattern of unacceptable police behavior. We must not allow fires to burn up the agenda for change and hope.
By the way, there are two killers: white supremacists disguised as policeman and COVID-19. Honor the protocols of social distancing. There are 100,000 deaths and counting. #GeorgeFloyd
@Kaepernick7 like Noah in the Bible warned us the flood was coming. He was dismissed & banned.The raindrops keep falling, the waters are rising. He was the canary in the mine. In protests, do not forget the dangers of COVID-19.There are 100,000 deaths & counting. #GeorgeFloyd
To ignore the Navajo Nation is a denial of humanity and an acceptance of genocide. They deserve better.
We look to our youth for energy, expansion and inclusion which leads to growth. The youth that come to these rallies represent hope, healing and promise for our nation. It’s a joy to “feel the Bern” with Bernie. Keep Hope Alive! #VotingMatters @BernieSanders
#BothamJean killed in his house in Dallas. #AtatianaJefferson killed in her house in Fort Worth. A house should be a sanctuary from terror. Legal Lynching must be punished. First degree murder must be punished.
It’s a mistake to physically go to church this Sunday without medical preparation. To do so is an act of defiance not worship. Do justice and walk humbly with God. Beware of those who pray loud on corners to be seen. Pray in your private closet and don’t jeopardize your neighbor.
