(THREAD) A homicidal mental state is not a mental illness. This is why our laws hold persons accountable who act with homicidal intent whenever a mental illness does not account for that intent. Stigmatizing mentally ill people, unjustly, isn't helpful. The problem is "#Bigotry."
A "#Bigot" is a person who has a baseless bias (or baseless biases) against a group (or groups) of humans. By itself, bigotry is not harmless. It influences the way one speaks, acts, thinks, votes, and advocates. #BigotRhetoric is pernicious, insidious, and infectious.
Repeated exposure to #BigotRhetoric can literally alter how others perceive stimuli. They will inevitably begin to experience confirmation bias that reinforces and augments growing bigotry, in their minds. In any large groups of humans, some will have homicidal mental states.

THIS is how you talk about a #RacistPresident.
For those asking, @LindseyBoylan is an exceptional new candidate for Congress in #NY10.

She helped lead the #FightFor15 in New York and secured hundreds of millions for public housing.

She accepts no corporate PAC or fossil fuel $.

If we have any hope of defeating Trump and his extremist GOP cronies, we'll need to fill the Democratic Party with bold, unapologetic progressive voices like Lindsey's. We'll never win the fight against racism and xenophobia with mealy-mouthed "centrism."

@JoeBiden said that there has never been an American president as racist as @realDonaldTrump. He's wrong. I can think of three: Andrew Jackson, who enforced the Indian Removal Act that escalated and accelerated the extermination of Native Americans; Andrew Johnson who seized the
lands of African Americans, preventing them from accumulating inter-generational wealth; and, Woodrow Wilson who fired all African American federal workers, quashing their middle class aspirations, and screened the racist movie, 'Birth of a Nation,' in the White House, unleashing
paroxysms of lynchings and racist terror across America, targeting African Americans. Racist tropes as articulated by @realDonaldTrump usually result in horrific outcomes for the targeted groups. #TheOccupantInTheWhiteHouse poses an existential threat to African Americans and all

Poor Donald must be having a particularly long and difficult bowel movement.

NOT COOL to call him #racistpresident or #racistinchief.
PLEASE, look past;
-Nixon’s DOJ went after him & his dad for racist housing practices.
-Central Park Five.
-Gooogle “they don’t look like Indians to me”
-1992 fine for removing African American casino dealers
FURTHERMORE, would a #racistpresident
-He said Judge Curiel’s ethnicity disqualified him from presiding over DT’s fraud trial. (Because DT stole from Americans, including vets)
-“they’re bringing crime, they’re bringing rapists”
-“shithole countries”
And if he was a #racistpresident, he’d never say:
-“very fine people on both sides.”
-“our beautiful memorials” referring to white supremacist Confederacy statues
-immigrants from Nigeria would never “go back to their huts”
-pardoning Arpaio, who was convicted of you-know-what...

1) Thread dedicated to @JoeBiden & pals. In 2012, Biden came to my hometown of Danville, VA & told black Davillians, that WHITE RIGHT WINGERS would "put them back in chains." #IWasThere #RacistDemocrats
WATCH THE VIDEO WITH SOUND ON!!

2) I was there w/an Obama/ Biden supporting friend, not only to be company for her, but because I was a young voter & I wanted to make sure I was getting all the info needed to make my political decisions logically. My Right Winger Parents Taught Me That. cbsnews.com/news/biden-tel…
3) I sat there stunned. 😳 Danville, VA, in its earlier days, was a hot spot for Civil Rights rallies & protests of the like. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. had even visited at least 4 times in his campaign to establish peace. virginiahumanities.org/2016/04/bearin…
