@realDonaldTrump This is Queens New York circa 1976. This is where Trump grew up, these were his neighbors. This is the neighborhood that molded him and created the vile, repugnant, racist in the White House.

@realDonaldTrump New York, where countless Black people have been murdered in acts of senseless, racist, violence, is where Trump lived, worked and played.

He called for 5 Black teens to be put to death over a rape they didn’t commit, but never said a word about the unjust murder of Blacks.
@realDonaldTrump Michael Griffin was murdered by racist white boys in Trump’s native queens three years before the #CentralPark5 were erroneously convicted.

Trump never said a damn thing.

Linda Fairstein is trapped in a dilemma. If the men known as #CentralPark5 are innocent, then the police may have coerced them to “confess.” She refuses to accept the latter, so she’s stuck insisting that these men are guilty of something. 1/

In her WSJ op-ed, she finally admits, “Mr. Reyes’s confession, DNA match and claim that he acted alone required that the rape charges against the five be vacated. I agreed with that decision and still do.” 2/
But there were other assaults that night and Fairstein still insists "there was certainly more than enough evidence to support those convictions of first-degree assault, robbery, riot and other charges." 3/

I watched @ava #whentheyseeus Sunday. My friend #Justice4Jeremy was gunned down Monday evening. Immediately following his murder @ProvoPolice & local media released Jeremy’s criminal history most of which was dismissed with prejudice! They’ve yet to release killers name 1/T
I’ve been told by law enforcement offers to let the @ProvoPolice & @UtahCoAttorneys do their job. If “we” rush them they’ll do a bad job. Meanwhile Jeremy’s neighbor the man who killed him is being treated like a hero. The female aggressor is being protected. #justice4Jeremy 2/T
Meanwhile the story keeps changing. First he was over the woman he was fighting. Now he was kicking her in the head? She was treated for “minor” injuries and released. Who is she? The women we think it is has disappeared from social media. She was a bully. #Justice4jeremy 3/T

(1) I finally got to watch #WhenTheySeeUs, but the news interrupted: a "#terror attack foiled in #TimesSquare." A disturbing headline, but if you look beneath the surface, a very different story emerges, along w/ disturbing parallels to the #CentralPark5 nytimes.com/2019/06/07/nyr…
(2) The first thing that got my attention was prosecutor’s admission that “despite his intentions, he posed no immediate threat.” A man wanted to attack Times Square, but there was no threat? That didn’t make sense. How could such a major attack not be a threat?
(3) Looking at the facts laid out in the criminal complaint, things get a bit clearer. As paragraph 3 says that in "the course of an investigation...[the defendant] bought and received two firearms with obliterated serial numbers from undercover law enforcement officers."

Don’t think Trump is a racist? This is Antron McCray who was 15 when Donald Trump took out a full page calling for him to face the DEATH PENALTY. McCray had his conviction vacated and another man plead guilty to the rape he was convicted of. #CentralPark5 #Racist
This is Yusef Salaam who was 14. He too had his conviction vacated. Trump said in his ad said he “wants them to be afraid.” #CentralPark5
This is Korey Wise he was 16 when he was convicted of a crime he would eventually be full exonerated.

Let's just say it - if LeBron James was white, President Trump never would have questioned his intelligence or his charity work. How do I know? Let's check the history...
In the 1970s, Trump was sued for not renting to African Americans at his properties... salon.com/2011/04/28/don…
Trump still thinks five young Black men are guilty of a crime DNA evidence has absolved them of. #CentralPark5 nbcnews.com/politics/2016-…

If you were irked by Trump/Hitler comparisons, READ THIS and then let’s talk.

Self-avowed Nazis aren’t just favorably comparing Trump to Hitler, they see Trump as their Hitler-Messiah ™
This isn’t a fluke. They aren’t flocking to Trump because they are stupid.
