The "lily-white" Republican version of intellectual diversity: A Black person who agrees with their delusions -- lies.

And, where is the @ACLU? Whu isn't it defending black people's free speech?

Where are the Lily-White Progressives when you need them?
These are supposedly
black people's white liberal freinds? Where are they? War is being waged on black people? We can't find you.
