More than 6M Americans have already voted 🗳

Democrats have returned more than twice the number of ballots as Republicans.
Hillary Clinton lead in early voting in 2016 as well but not by these margins.

For instance, in Florida Democrats outvoted Republicans by only 2% at this point in 2016. But right now 53% of the votes cast in Florida are Democrats versus 28% Republicans.
In North Carolina, registered Democrats have cast 52% of the ballots so far, up from 36% in 2016.

Registered Republicans account only for 17% of the ballots turned in right now. That is down a whopping 37% from 2016.
In Pennsylvania — Democrats have made up a whopping 75% of the ballots that have been returned.

Republicans have only turned in 15%.
More Republicans tend to vote on election day than Democrats do, that’s true.

But what this means is that the Democrats are able to better target their voter mobilization strategies going into election day. They don’t have to spend time and money going after votes already cast.
Also, in other positive news Democratic voters make up about 44% of the first time electorate, while first time Republicans account for 35%.

We are looking at multipliers a five, six, or even seven times more infrequent voters.
This also doesn’t account of course for ballots from voters who are unaffiliated, or voters who for instance may be registered Republicans but voted for Biden.

One of my friends was dating this dude — he was fine AF but I told her from the beginning don’t catch feelings because he ain’t shit. She found herself buying him his dream 🚗 for his b’day. After she found out he cheated on her w/10 girls she dumped him and he took the 🚗
The car was $20k. I told her call the police and report it stolen. She said I can’t because it’s in his name. WHAT?! I told you if you gonna play sugar mama buy the car, register in YOUR name and just let him drive it. Now he’s gone and you’re stuck with the LEASE.
The car still has $10k on it to be paid off and she depleted her life savings on the down payment and other girls for him (PlayStation, jewelry, Yeezys, and other shit)

I feel bad but I told her at every fucking turn not to trust him, just get the D and keep it pushing

🚨 White woman with missing teeth falsely claims a black family is stealing her car.

6 white bystanders believe her, surround the car, block them from leaving, start physically attacking them, and then follow on motorcycles when they try to escape.

This is terrifying to watch
This is the rest of the video that shows them trying to escape while one man remains on the hood of the car and another is chasing them on his motorcycle.
People have reached out to Lee Allen, the father in the video offering help to pay for the damages.

The white woman apparently “believed” it was a car she had that was stolen 6 years ago.

🚨 Three police officers in Wilmington, North Carolina have been fired after a department audit of a video recording captured one of the officers saying a civil war was necessary to wipe Black people off the map and that he was ready.…
Cpl Jessie Moore referred to a Black female as a “negro.” He also referred to the woman using a racial slur. He repeated the use of the slur in describing a Black magistrate, and Moore used a gay slur to describe the magistrate as well.
Officer Kevin Piner told Moore that he feels a civil war is coming and that he is ready. Piner said he was going to buy a new assault rifle, and soon “we are just going to go out and start slaughtering them (expletive)” Blacks. “I can’t wait. God, I can’t wait.”

White folks seeing all of these racists exposed in the wake of the George Floyd protests --

You need to consider this:
How many of them have the power to keep blacks from buying or renting a home or apartment?…
How many of them have the power to deny them a loan for a mortgage, to start a small business, or access to working capital?…

As Thurgood Marshall was fighting the much bigger, but slower moving cases like desegregating schools -- he would travel around the country doing small but flashy cases where a white woman had accused some poor black farmer of rape, whistling or looking at her the wrong way.
It helped build the reputation and amplify the work of the NAACP. One of these such cases was chronicled in the Chadwick Boseman movie "Marshall"
But with the press attention came a danger associated with these cases for Marshall and his team of lawyers. When black people heard he was coming to town there was a feeling of hope and excitement. For white people -- his presence brought anxiety and dread.
