We don't need another #WomensWave. We need #revolution!

The View's Megan McCain once lost it when people assumed most Trump voters are racist. She used her dad as an example of why she couldn't be racist, but never cited his vote against MLK day and against the Civil Rights Act.
The root of it is a simplistic view about racism and bigotry. Which makes sense, considering she's not ever at the gun barrel's end or bank's end of daily racism from every corner. It's even understandable.
And the other root of it is Tamika's is not so simplistic, because of the impact Nation of Islam had being, often, the only groups able to protect Black folks in cities under siege by state powered racism.

On January 21, 2017, we organized the largest single-day protest in US history. We came together as women, femmes, and allies to speak out, and we set the stage for the resistance movement that continues today.

YOU did this. YOU made this happen.

On January 28, 2017—just one week after the first Women’s March—we flooded airports nationwide to protest the Muslim Ban.

Women who marched together went to airports together. People who met at women’s marches came together again to say #NoMuslimBan.

We were planning to shut down the Capitol Building but the authorities were so scared of this #WomensWave that they shut it down for us.

1000+ women, survivors, and allies have gathered in the Hart Senate Building.
Every hallway. Every floor.

#CancelKanavaugh #BelieveSurvivors
The entire building is echoing with chants of “BELIEVE SURVIVORS”
We believe ALL survivors.
