(THREAD) There are a lot of great things you can do to support people on the front lines of fights to #KeepFamiliesTogether, #StopSeparation, #EndDetention, #DefundHate, #AbolishICE, and #AbolishCBP.

One of the best places to give $$$ is to a community bond fund.
Bond and bail funds don't have many overhead costs, so all or nearly all of your donations directly benefit impacted families. 100% of $$$ given to our Fronterizo Fianza Fund go towards paying bonds and small commissary/telephone deposits. fianzafund.org/about-the-fundโ€ฆ
Immigrant bond funds are doing great work. @eicommunitybond is working to free every person arrested during recent workplace raids in Iowa holaamericanews.com/iowa-city-orgaโ€ฆ

My father was bi-polar and an alcoholic with a tremendous heart

He's the reason for everything I am and everything I'm not.

Here's how I stopped the cycle and honor him on #FathersDay and everyday

THREAD
I was blessed with the most fantastic mother who was forced to provide and care for me.

She never spoke ill of my father.

She did her best to make sure that my father's failures did not impact me.

This allowed me to see that my father's issues were his own and not about me
So much of what I recognize in myself comes from my father.

How I look

My sense of humor

My calm demeanor

This is the first #fathersday without my dad, and although it's difficult to discuss, I will talk about it anyway.

Sometimes you learn more when a person isn't around than when they're still alive and kicking.
My dad lived a great life. When he was young, he was athletic, active, and had a quirky set of humor. He joined a band in his late teens and his twenties, he lifted weights religiously, he made many great friendships, and he got all the girls he wanted.
Unfortunately, after he met my mom and married her, he started to slip up with his health. He stopped eating right, started lifting less, and eventually became overweight and a type 2 diabetic.

Uh oh...

"Thanks Dad" is trending for #FathersDay

I better not. Lord help me...
Well, seeing as how #QAnon has us focusing on Barry Sotero today (qanon.pub), & given that it's also Father's Day, I figured it's as good a time as any to share this with all of you. #ThanksDad for the implicating photo (2008) #HivitesGetLit #ByePhoenicia #ItEndsNOW
Thank you, Mr @POTUS @realDonaldTrump for helping to liberate me from these monsters. Happy Father's Day to YOU.

On #FathersDay please remember all the fathers in Central America who are fleeing poverty and persecution in search of a safe life for their families. This is why parents come to the border with their children. Because they want a decent life for them. Because they love them. 1/
For two years I worked in Kenya with refugees who had migrated from all over East Africa: Sudan, Somalia, Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia. All were fleeing violence, famine and poverty. All wanted to stay in their homelands, but they couldn't. Neither could their children. 2
I must have met hundreds of refugee parents during my time in Kenya, and I can tell you this: No father or mother wants to take their child from their home. But they are forced to. Migrants and refugees do this out of great fear, and out of great love. 3

To white America, "Family values" only apply to white families.

The bond between white children and white parents is sacrosanct and must be protected at all costs.

The bond between Black and Brown parents and their children is negotiable at BEST.

It has always been this way.
White people have historically separated Black and Brown people from their children with a level of ethical qualm generally reserved for people giving out a litter of kittens.
The side effect of denying the humanity of nonwhite people is that no regard whatsoever has ever been given to the sanctity or importance of those family bonds.

Ripping a wailing Black or Brown child from its mother's arms has always just been business.

Still is.

We will just add these tweets to the "Coincidence Thread"

I'm here to tell you that these are not a coincidence & this is a just warning to repent. Places like Hawaii, California, Florida & NY have all but kicked God out.
I don't say these things out of fear, there is no fear in love

Dear @FOXTV, please bring back #TheGrinder. It's not too late.
When you finish season 1 of #TheGrinder on @netflix, only to discover it was cancelled. Do the right thing @FOXTV.
Dear @FOXTV, everyone agrees -#TheGrinder must #grindagain.
