You can remove Trump or he can stay until January 20th.

You can remove him from social media.

His ideology is American, because white supremacy was in the fabric of the founding documents of this nation.

Trump is & always has been an example of what is beneath the surface.
Millions of Americans voted for this man.

Millions of Americans believe that if Black people are voting at high numbers it’s rigged.

Their ancestors worked hard to restrict our vote, because they understood the power that came with giving us the ballot.
The question becomes, not what to do with Trump.

There are Trumps at every layer of government, nationally & locally.

The question is when do we get serious about ending the systems of white supremacy?

The time is now. #KeepPushing #ChangeisComing

My Grandma Emma passed away today at the beautiful age of 88.

This week has been a rollercoaster of emotions. This weekend it became clear my grandmother was starting to transition from this life. ImageImageImageImage
I did my best to stay focused on our objectives while also trying to be a good grandson.

So on the day we announced I was running for Congress, I sat by her bed and let her watch the video. She couldn’t speak, but she watched the whole thing and attempted to give me a sign
of affirmation. My grandmother was just as direct as me, she never mixed her words and she meant what she said. My heart hurts because she’s gone, but my spirit rejoices because I know where she is.

Emma was my biological mother’s mom. My mother has been deceased 35 years now.

Republicans have spent the last decade showing us how little they care for bi-partisan legislation.

Democrats Black voters have given you a gift. Control of the White House, the House, & now the Senate.

Medicare for All.
Green New Deal
Expand the Court
Balance the scales.
Will we have to amend, and make legislation stronger? Yes.

Will we consider the perspectives of ALL Americans? Yes.

Now is the time for us to go forward with intention to be about the work of justice.

We won’t be able to blame a republican senate on no change.
Let me also be clear. Black folks in key cities in this country showed up to deliver these victories.

So Black folks MUST be a priority in what takes place in Washington.

These majority Black cities need major investment.

People hate the phrase defund the police.

Yet we defund education and healthcare almost every year.

I live in a parish with 11 different police agencies, in the 2nd most incarcerated place in THE WORLD. It hasn’t solved crime.

Move the money. It’s not making us safer.
Call it defund.

Call it reappropriate.

Call it reallocate.

Call it reprioritize.

Call it whatever the hell you want.

Cops don’t need bigger budgets.

Cities need better plans to address the social ills of communities. That’s how we fix communities, not more cops.
People want us to pretend that we don’t have the consciousness or clarity of thought to know conservatives move money from important things all the time. Nearly every legislative session or council meeting.

Go tell somebody who doesn’t read a budget that moving money is wrong.

Mr. GoAuto @GoAutoInsurance Greg Tramontin thought it was appropriate to call the Vice President Elect Kamala Harris a “hoe.”

Greg benefits from many Black women who currently have auto insurance with his company. I think that everyone of the women who support his company >>>
and family by purchasing auto insurance should know this is how he thinks and speaks about Black women.

White men in power struggle to respect anyone else but other white men in power. They can’t grasp that anyone else is competent enough to lead.
Greg & his business should feel this. There should be Black men and women calling to cancel their insurance policies and going where they won’t be called a hoe when they reach the second highest office in America.

As a Black man, I don’t just sit

Most people voting on Republican tax plans, will never reach the tax bracket that the plans benefit the most.

It’s the idea that helping their bosses pay less taxes will save their jobs.

It’s the thought that maybe one day I’ll be rich like Trump, and want to cheat taxes too.
The poorest states in America are ran by republicans.

Think about that. The people who are telling you to trust their economic strategy can’t build booming economies.

The last two republicans presidents made decisions that tanked the economy.

Stop letting these people lie.
Call it out, and back it up with data.

7 of the lowest ranking states have republican governors.

9 out of 10 of the lowest ranking states have republicans ran legislators.

Republicans are FAILING the people. Literally, we can do better.

Don’t be fooled by talking points.

Celebrate, but don’t you dare think the 71 million people who thought a bigot in the White House was acceptable aren’t fuming right now.

Trump helped make clear how deeply divided this nation is. That won’t go away with Biden & Harris.

White supremacist are real & angry now.
Trump will continue to fan the flames of division all the way to the end.

Decency has never been his thing, and it isn’t for his supporters either. They voted for him. Which means to whatever degree they agree with his approach.

Expect pushback from them in the days ahead.
America has always been the country we’ve seen for the last 4 years through a Trump presidency. It will be that tomorrow, and the day after.

Which means we have to protect ourselves and be careful of our surroundings. Everybody in the crowd isn’t a supporter. Know this.
