Why write this book? Because on October 24, 2018 in #Louisville, KY, these 2 beautiful people—my sweet, elder cousin, Vickie Jones and Mr. Maurice Stallard—was stolen from their families & community by a man who decided they were the wrong color to be grocery shopping that day. ImageImage
They are the genesis of my decision to write this book; to tell the stories of unrelenting pain and grief AND/ALSO how we make room for joy, love, peace, and healing by reckoning with it.

Why write this book?
Because there’s a too long list of names/hashtags (see: #buffaloshooting) that came before & after #Krogershooting. Which means that racial violence is still a reality for Black & Indigenous folks in this country & the “church” is complicit in that. I/we want off this ride.

THREAD: After the #TreeOfLifeSynagogue #shooting, the #KrogerShooting before that, and the +14 bombs sent by the #MAGABomber, it's crucial that we call #RightWingTerrorism out for what it is, but we also clearly need to talk about #WhiteSupremacy in the 2018 election.
We celebrate the truly #HISTORIC number of #women and #POC running for office in 2018, but we also refuse to ignore the volume & range of explicit and implicit #racist attacks almost every single candidate of color has faced in this election. That's also #WhiteSupremacy in action
Let's be clear: #POC running for elected office have ALWAYS faced hurdles to victory defined by the strength of #StructuralRacism and our country's long-standing culture of #WhiteSupremacy. But 2018 has taken it to a new level.
