For those of you who are offended by the #1619Project and may erroneously use my father’s quotes to defend your offense, read the ‘Racism and the White Backlash’ chapter in his book, ‘Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?’ first. Quotes from ‘WDWGFH’ follow. @nhannahjones
“Ever since the birth of our nation, white America has had a schizophrenic personality on the question of race.” #MLK
“She has been torn between selves—a self in which she proudly professed the great principles of democracy and a self in which she sadly practiced the antithesis of democracy.” #MLK

Being the niece of MLK gives you no definitive authority to declare what is or is not racist.

James and John were Jesus’ cousins. They couldn’t drink from the cup of suffering that he drank from.

#MLK would’ve called Trump a racist and you a disgrace.

White racists, with support from Black sycophants and racism apologists, like Alveda King, have basically turned #MLK’s legacy against Black people.

MLK is contemptibly used as a cudgel to silence and shame anyone speaking against white supremacy, racism, and anti-Black bigotry.
Who would’ve thought the legacy of the Drum Major for Justice, who passionately fought for Blacks and sacrificed his life, would be used as a tool to defend a bigot like 46-1 and bludgeon Blacks into passively accepting white supremacy?

He’s rolling over in his grave.

Wise, passionate, transparent words from @esglaude. We don’t have to be HERE again. “What is needed today on the part of white America is a committed altruism...True altruism is more than the capacity to pity; it is the capacity to empathize.” #MLK
“Pity is feeling sorry for someone; empathy is feeling sorry with someone. Empathy is fellow feeling for the person in need—his pain, agony and burdens.”
”I doubt if the problems of our teeming ghettos will have a great chance to be solved until the white majority, through genuine empathy, comes to feel the ache and anguish of the Negroes’ daily life.”

#MLK opened the door, but still many people have not walked through it to the world he dreamed of. Still hanging on to the past, of hate and memories of a really tragic time in USA history. All Americans, no matter their race or country of origin are eligible to enjoy his dream.
With one's eyes and heart closed, you only see darkness, to be truly free, you must see God's light. Once seen, your heart will open so that hate may exit and love may enter. #Democrats2020 water the #GardenOfHate with lies and broken promises.
#OpenYourEyesToGodsLight. 🙏
The #Democrats2020 are the "dark of destructive selfishness".
Seeking #Socialism, not the #Freedom #MLK spoke of and fought for, gave his life for. So the choice is before you now America, choose light over darkness, right over wrong, or live in the past failures of #Democrats.

"First, I must confess that over the last few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler...”
“...or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice...”
“...who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom...”

IT's NOT CONSERVATIVE,
IT's FASCIST

words matter, especially when you're describing something that has already happened in history

Yang wants to dismantle the "welfare state" and turn govt into an arm of industry

this is literally what was Mussolini's goal...

1/2
Hitler & Mussolini had basically different views on who should be at the top of the hierachy

for Mussolini it was a triumvirate of industry, banking & military

for Hitler it was the party

a concept embraced by the Soviets in Russia and Republicans in USA

and here we are

2/2
PS:

ANDREW YANG's
PROPOSAL IS
*NOT*
UNIVERSAL
BASIC
INCOME

and it is spitting on the legacy Martin Luther King Jr #MLK to say so

for it to be #UBI everybody gets it, regardless of age & labored income

BABIES GET #UBI

so miss me with the ageist bullshit

plus...

Dear @WSJ,

Sorry, Mr. Rove, but #StaceyAbrams’ claim that the 2018 gubernatorial election was corrupted is hardly "unsupported." Our team found a half million-plus Georgians were purged from voter rolls by #BrianKemp in the year before the election. wsj.com/articles/stace…
They lost their vote on the ostensible grounds they’d left the state or voting county. We found 340,136 of those voters had never moved from where they originally registered. But Kemp took away their right to vote — while he was running for Governor. gregpalast.com/georgias-brian…
Mr. Rove is correct in stating these citizens were purged in accordance with #Georgia’s "Use It or Lose It" law. But that law only acts as an "alternative means" recognized by the National Voter Registration Act for determining if a voter has moved. truthout.org/articles/gops-…

A thread:

As I reflect on the assassination of my father 51 years ago today, this photo means a great deal to me. Even as a child, he captivated me. And
now, as his 56 year-old adult daughter, he continues to captivate me. 

#WeWillGetThere

I was leaning in then; I am leaning in now. I did not fully grasp who he was then, but now I fully understand. He was a prophet to the world. His words and teachings provide the just, equitable, humane, and peaceful way to create a just, equitable, humane and peaceful world.
What he taught us through his example and through the movement emanated Christ. He was the embodiment of the Christ Spirit. We ignore his words and teachings at our own peril.

A thread on #nonviolence:

This man is not being passive. He is demonstrating attention to an ultimate goal by making it clear who’s the oppressed and who’s the oppressor. He is harnessing his energy to win a critical policy change in the freedom struggle.
#Nonviolence is not passive; nor does it cower in the face of evil and injustice. However, it is strategic, active and tactical, with an ultimate goal in mind. Now the question is: What’s the ultimate goal?
A critical mass of people with a shared ultimate goal will help us develop a global, comprehensive strategy. We determine the parts that make up the whole. Example: reuniting children with families is a part of the ultimate goal of creating a more peaceful, just, humane world.

To all the people, designated White by colonizing nations, who are becoming disillusion by your evangelical or Christian faith: When you walk away from Jesus you are not #woke. You are operating out of the white supremacy you say you abhor. 1/ #LiberatingEvangelicalism
When you walk away from Jesus and Christian faith to be “woke” you are walking away from a faith that sprang from brown, indigenous, colonized people. You’re walking away from faith born on the underside of empire in the context of oppressed peoples. 2/ #LiberatingEvangelicalism
You’re walking away from the faith of enslaved people who found such profound liberation in Jesus that they broke laws to gather together and worship in #trees! 3/

Please RT @DonaldJTrumpJr and let us not forget FBI spied & plotted vs MLK like @realDonaldTrump using the same formula!

.@NBCPhiladelphia You just devoted a full segment to lauding a convicted rapist. You gave #BillCosby's attorney seven minutes to talk about how "Some women lie" and Cosby's long-overdue rape conviction was "infidelity" Cosby and Camille "dealt with." This was disgraceful.
70 women have accused Cosby of rape. He was deemed a violent sexual predator by the court for his decades of drugging and raping women.

Your piece presented Cosby as if these assaults never happened. Your reporter dismissed the crimes Cosby was convicted of.
You showed clips of The Cosby Show and allowed Cosby's attorney to assert Cosby was a Civil Rights icon on par with #MLK #MalcolmX and #NelsonMandela. You shamed @NBCPhiladelphia and further traumatized Cosby's victims.

This is an interview with Michelle Alexander from April 2016. I re-watched it last week and I am surprised that more people don't know about it and that it still only has 59,000 views as of January 2019. In this interview, Michelle Alexander endorses the "political revolution."
It's a great interview and here's the clip if you want to watch the whole thing, but I will provide a transcript of the first three minutes to give you a sense of what she says to @chrislhayes. #BernieSanders #Bernie2020 #OurRevolution @OurRevolution
Michelle Alexander, by the way, is the author of The New Jim Crow, Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, and I highly recommend the book, too, as it provides a tremendous insight into the racial injustice inherent in the U.S. mass incarceration era. @thenewjimcrow

When did it become ok to promote violence against a child? Is it because the child is white or catholic? We have come along way to fulfilling #MLK’s dream to suddenly lose our way. #racism #Violence
This is dangerous very dangerous. No one has checked those asking for violence against a kid. Social media was on fire attacking this kid(s). Even tomorrow when the kid gives an interview many are attacking him. When does it stop?
Now the left hates this interview. These out of control adults on the left need to get a life. I will continue to calm them and their hypocrisy out every chance I get! Please join me. #SavanahGuthrie #CovingtonCatholicHighSchool

In the debate over what happened between @CovCathColonels students & Native American elder Nathan Phillips, another exchange--with a young man holding up two fingers--has been overlooked. It is more subtle, but may tell us more about our crisis of racial misunderstanding.

PRELUDE: The day's whole ugly affair begins when five self-styled "Black Hebrew Israelites" begin taunting white kids for wearing MAGA hats. (Go to 1:07:00 in their video) There appears to be no other provocation.
3/11
RESPONSE: More than 50 students drown out the insults with chants that the school is famous for--including one resembling a Samoan "haka" war dance. @CovCathColonels call it the "Sumo." (1:10:02 in video)

At the conclusion of #MLKDay, a brief thread about my father and how we can authentically honor him. #MLK90 #MLK:
He was a global, comprehensive thinker who believed that all of humanity is interconnected.
He was not anti-political. He believed that laws should reflect a quest for justice and peace. And he worked and protested for legislative change.

There is a myth going about. It is spoken on our news. It is taught in our schools. Liberal free thinking allies and racists alike tout it. It is an image that is much more a mirage of a colorblind hero in the body of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Gather round. #MLK2019 #MLK #MLK90
Let's jump right in with a quote from the "I Have A Dream" speech.

Dear White People,
Dr. King's mind was on a lot more than Black kids and White kids holding hands. Read this part: #MartinLutherKingJr on #PoliceBrutality. How #BlackLivesMatter of him...
Schools don't teach that #MartinLutherKing began the Poor People's Campaign, believed in Americans having a universal guaranteed income, and stood vehemently against the "evils" of capitalism and the Vietnam War. His dream went so exceedingly beyond "content of character".
