You know what you tell him @BernieSanders? That it isn't his fault he got pulled over for failing to signal, and that the cop didn't have the right to arrest you for not putting out the cigarette that calms your anxiety. #SandraBland
You know what you tell him @BernieSanders? That it should be ok for him to be in his own house watching TV in his underwear and that the cop shouldn't have been in his home in the first place. #BothamJean
You know what you tell him @BernieSanders? That him playing at the nearby schoolyard by himself isn't reason enough for him to be the victim of a state-sanctioned drive by. #TamirRice

Reasons Black people have been murdered in 21st century America:

Praying, biking, driving, running, lying down, holding skittles, breathing, being home.

#AtatianaJefferson
And while we're contemplating the injustice of #AtatianaJefferson's killing, think of #OscarGrant, shot in the back as he lay face down.

#PhilandoCastile, shot to death inside his car for NO reason.

Or #TamirRice, gunned down for holding a toy, which I describe in my book...
Think of #SandraBland, #EricGarner, #BothamJean.

Think of being Black and living in a nation where you're safe NOWHERE. Not at home. Not in church. Not on the street.

And where law enforcement can gun you down without consequences.

.@TuckerCarlson I'm not in Antifa. No reasonable person thinks I peddle hate. But you told your audience those things. & then I received a barrage of threats & hate. & I had to take major steps to protect my family. So I can imagine how you feel right now.
And if anyone wants to learn about Antifa here is an interview I did with historian Mark Bray on my old podcast w/ @harikondabolu, #PoliticallyReactive.

Lot of people on both sides are rushing to Tucker Carlson's defense like there are prizes involved. How about you have the same energy when he targets people, especially when those people don't have the privilege or the budgets to defend themselves.
