Let’s talk about a real #NationalEmergency.

In 2014, #Flint, Michigan had such poor water treatment that their pipes leaked lead into the drinking water which affected more than 100k people.

It is January 8th, 2019 and the issue has STILL not been fully resolved.

I continue...
Can you imagine this happening in a rich white area? Of course not.

Let’s not pretend that this has nothing to do with race.

PERHAPS it has to do with the fact that the US census stated that 53.9% of the population is Black and 37.5% is Hispanic.
Now, the US census also states that there is 39.9% white population and let’s not forget that everyone is being effected by this.

The issue is that we seem to move really fucking slow when it comes to areas that are not ALL WHITE.

New Orleans anyone???

Marches don't do shit to solve the problems we face as a nation. Due to gerrymandering, Citizens United, NRA and cheating (Scotus, stolen election) we have no opportunity to hold our representatives accountable $ is their only constituent. #FamiliesBelongTogetherMarch
#Resisters stop hoping that either #Mueller or #midterm2018 will right the wrongs of this regime. Realize we must be prepared to simultaneously attack and employ different tactics to win. We have to think out-of-the-box and #justdoit as 1st #womensmarch #msdstrong @MomsDemand
It's time to take a cue from our global trading partners and those who boycotted NC due to HB2 (Bathroom Bill). I propose a nation-wide boycott of GOP states and/or districts until families reunited, #puertorico #flint #BLM #DACA, #ACA #SCOTUS globalnews.ca/news/4304951/c…

Here's the skinny: #Trump lost not just the popular vote, but also the vote in key swing states — that is, if you counted all the ballots cast and allowed the blocked and purged voters to vote. truth-out.org/opinion/item/4… #Resist #VoterSuppression via @truthout
Take Michigan. Trump officially won the state by 10,700 votes. But 75,355 ballots were never counted. Michiganders vote on these ridiculous paper ballots that old machines have a hard time reading. And critically, 87 machines simply broke down and didn't count the votes at all.
And where were these uncounted ballots and broken machines? I found them in #Detroit and #Flint, #Michigan — two majority-Black cities. Do you think those 75,355 ballots in Detroit and Flint were Trump ballots? gregpalast.com/palast-report-…
