do you know about elaine phillips?

people from #Louisiana, #Mississippi, #Tennessee, #Alabama & #Missouri might know

just so you know elaine phillips was not a:
woman
man
human

elaine phillips was an horrific event which happened in #Arkansas
2019 - marks 100th anniversary of one of the deadliest US massacres, claiming 200+ black lives

black sharecroppers worked in fields w/o fair share of profits

blacks were the majority population but control of cotton was dominated by whites, who low-balled wholesale prices
#civiljustice
#racism

whites also enacted a system designed to keep blacks in debt to keep control of the community
(familiar)?

so, black farmers gathered at church to unionize

white security guards circled building, shots were fired & a white security officer was killed

So I spent yesterday in a place I've written about but never really visited (which is always surreal): the Pearl River Swamp on the border of #Louisiana & #Mississippi.
During the Civil War this area (which is very close to the Free State of Jones that @vikki_bynum wrote about) was filled with anti-Confederate white men hiding out, trying to avoid having to fight the slaveholders' war.
I couldn't stop thinking about the WPA slave narratives about the area. The anti-Confederate whites learned how to hide from the enslaved, who learned from Native Americans.

I will say this, over and over again.None of these numbers are even close to what the polls are saying.We are leading by large margins everywhere. I honestly am not seeing us just barely hanging onto the house at this point. Its looking more and more like we win big in the house!

I was looking at Louisiana Secretary of State candidates the other day. I came across one who had a website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. And they all told me nothing.
The candidate used a slogan repeatedly, but there was no indication of what that slogan really meant.
Let's take Shirley Chisholm's Presidential run for example. Now, she didn't even win the Democratic nomination (and that's another story), but Shirley had a memorable campaign slogan: Unbought & Unbossed.

She didn't just say she was unbought and unbossed; she showed you how.

According to Chuck Todd, host of @MTPDaily, this tweet is a “tell” that Donald Trump is panicked about the effort from 18 Republican Attorneys General to challenge the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in court▶️seeking to end protections for those with pre-existing conditions. #LieGate
⚡️It’s certainly not a good look for Republicans less than 3 weeks from the November Election.

▶️Neither is talking about separating more children from their parents and putting them in cages
▶️Neither is talking about stripping Social Security & Medicare programs
▶️Neither is protecting the murderers of a respected journalist, then using money as the reason and inflating the numbers while you’re doing it

Immigration & Customs Enforcement—more commonly known as ICE, is a law enforcement agency of the federal government of the U.S. tasked to enforce the immigration laws of the United States & to investigate criminal and terrorist activity of foreign nationals residing in the U.S.
ℹ️ICE has two primary components: Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). It is an agency under the jurisdiction of Homeland Security and was established in 2003 following the 9/11 tragedy.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Immi…
ICE was designed to keep us safe from terrorists—for instance, the terrorists who took over the planes on 9/11 were living undetected in the U.S. for over a year.

Pls read this thoroughly before commenting. The Trump administration has corrupted this agency to do horrific acts.

Two years ago, my city was DEVASTATED by an unnamed storm that dropped over 3 feet of rain in 3 days. We had no warning. No weatherman knew this was coming.
We call it The Great Flood of 2016.
I remember my neighborhood street turning into a NO WAKE ZONE. 😢

#FalseFlag
My home was one of 10% in our city of 27,000 who DIDN'T flood. Abba Father created a vessel of me, and filled me with Providence for my city. Imet with the Mayor who handed me keys to a small, empty building on high ground, and I made a Facebook page. facebook.com/CentralDonatio…

This may explain some of the completely idiotic comments I’ve had directed at me by a few lawyers about the constitution here in #Louisiana . I hope @LSULawCenter distances themselves from this propagandist. @tardigrade18 delete your account. Shame on @thehill for publishing it.
