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/

#BernieSanders has announced his run as the oldest person ever to run for president.

Sanders has spent the time since he tried to subvert the will of the voters by claiming he would contest the 2016 convention slamming Democrats & the Dem base.

Where is the fox/henhouse emoji?
Three of the 6 women candidates running for the Dem nomination have a more progressive voting record than Sanders, with Warren and Gillibrand proffering seriously progressive legislation for women and families that bests Sanders.

We have better messengers for Sanders' message.
This comprehensive interview with @NYDailyNews is still the litmus for Sanders. Read the transcript. He's had three years since to fill in the gaps.

He has not.

.@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 article is an attempt to encourage people to help in whatever way they can, and also to provide hope by seeing what people have already done! eg: Roger Waters' demonstration of solidarity at a concert, @ChrisLynnHedges's twitter thread, artists like @yarraspot & more!
As I wrote in the article, the ideas and opinions expressed in the piece are singularly my own, & are not endorsed by Wikileaks or any other person besides myself! 🙂
