The Big Switch Hypocrites !

The Virulence of Hollyweed are indeed nothing more or less than hypocrites in canned caviar, who overestimated their power of status and money, just like the f*** Democrats since 1829 who defended #Slavery, who started the Civil War, who opposed
#Reconstruction, who founded the Ku-klux-klan, who imposed #Segregation, who perpetrated #Lynchings, who fathered the #White f**** #Supremacy by reestablished the #Black Code #Laws exclusively to subvert and undermine the black community across of the United States the #Right to
#Vote, and as well as fought against the #Civil Rights #Act of 1950's and 1960's.

#TuesdayThoughts: I wasn't able to be as productive as I wanted to be this year given an (often-ass-kicking) autoimmune disorder, but here's a thread of a few highlights.

As always, I remain so grateful to you all for your continued support.❤️
First, I am very proud of co-editing, with @m_hild, Reconsidering Southern Labor History: Race, Class, and Power. We had perceptive, brilliant scholars contributing essays on a wide variety of topics. Look for the paperback release in 2019!

Just sayin' - I've got a graf in my #Mississippi piece for @BitterSouth tomorrow that's already made two grown men cry.

This article is incredible:

Happy Thursday, peeps.
