For all you Black people in my mentions caping for Prince Harry and defending his racist past, tell me what he has done to advance the cause of justice for Black people in America to deserve an award from the most influential civil rights organization in the nation. When was Prince Harry on the front lines against police brutality and the extra judicial murder of Black people?

When has he challenged America’s disparate response to Black people addicted to crack versus white people addicted to opioids?

#IfKyleWasBlack, he’d be dead. #IfKyleWasBlack, no one currently defending him would hold that position.

“I am sad to say that most white people are racist, either consciously or unconsciously.”

“White Americans must recognize that justice for Black people cannot be achieved without radical changes in the structure of our society.”

- #MLK

Stop trying to whitenize #MLK. “Whites, it must frankly be said, are not putting in a similar mass effort to reeducate themselves out of their racial ignorance. It is an aspect of their sense of superiority that the white people of America believe they have so little to learn.”

Dear @delta

Good customer service is not being apathetic toward a longtime medallion customer who had…

- a flight delay that caused him to miss his connection

- to pay to stay overnight in connecting city because @delta wouldn’t comp the hotel

1/4 - had to come back to the airport to pick up a delayed bag that was sent to ATL because @delta failed to deliver it

- was erroneously told that a 2nd delayed bag was in Detroit and would be routed to the hotel in his destination city

Here’s an example of white racists playing the victim.

@jimpolito from @WHYN560 disparages me by saying, “I use the word ‘Bishop’ loosely,” refers to Black people as “these folks,” and claims Springfield Police Commissioner Clapprood is “under attack.”

No, she’s not.

1/4 14 cops are being prosecuted for beating Black people and lying on police reports.

A cop who was convicted for beating a 15-year-old Black boy is still on police payroll.

But Commissioner Clapprood is a victim because residents want her fired for racism and incompetence?

Memorial Day (Thread)

Memorial Day, formally known as Decoration Day, was originally started by a group of African Americans.

The holiday was initially an event held by newly liberated Black people in Charleston, South Carolina.

#MemorialDay On May 1, 1865, at the end of the Civil War, thousands of newly freed slaves and regiments of the U.S. Colored Troops gathered to march around a Confederate Army prison camp in honor of the unnamed fallen Union soldiers who fought for their freedom.

Meet Cornelius Ennis, Tucker Carlson’s 3x great grandfather.

He was a SLAVE OWNER, cotton shipper, railroad exec, and Mayor of Houston. Ennis, TX is named for him.

During the Civil War he was a blockade runner for the Confederacy.

White supremacy is in @TuckerCarlson’s DNA. According to the TX State Historical Association, Mayor Cornelius Ennis was was born in 1813 in NJ, same as @TuckerCarlson’s 3x great grandfather. His family came to NJ from Ireland, same as Carlson‘s family. He married Jeanette Kimball, name of Carlson‘s 3x great grandmother.

Learn your history wypipo, you are the original rioters.

You didn’t riot because you were being unjustly murdered, you rioted to subjugate Black people.

You destroyed entire towns because Black people were becoming too prosperous.

You lynched and murdered us by the thousands. The East St. Louis Massacre was sparked by the fear of Black men migrating from the South to factories in the North and taking jobs from white people. Wypipo murdered hundreds of Black people and destroyed the town. It launched what is known as ‘Red Summer.’

It is being reported that the shooter is a 17 year old who drove to #Kenosha from Antioch, Illinois with an AR-15 looking for trouble. He murdered 2 people and wounded a man who will lose his arm as a result.

Where is @realDonaldTrump complaining about outside agitators? The vitriolic, divisive, and violently racist fear mongering rhetoric at the #RNCConvention was a call to arms that inspired this act of mass MURDER.

Blood is on the hands of 46-1, his family, and the #GOP.

This is Christian Walker. He was trained well on how to be a foot shuffling bootlicker by his famous white supremacy apologizing father #HerschelWalker.

For the record Christian:

4,529 women were RAPED by WHITE men last week. 13% of raped women attempt suicide.

1/5 121 WHITE people were MURDERED by WHITE men last week. 89% of murdered white people are killed by white people.

54% on welfare are WHITE women. WHITE people without a college degree 18 to 64 are the largest class lifted out of poverty by so called ‘entitlement’ programs.

To hell with all of you, including Black people, who use ‘Black on Black crime’ to deflect from police brutality, the extra judicial murder of Black people, and systemic racism in America.

It’s an invalid argument.

It’s disingenuous.

It’s racist.

It’s disgusting.

1/5
So-called ‘Black-on-Black crime’ isn’t a valid argument against criticizing police brutality.

When white people use it, what they’re basically saying is, “you kill each other, why can’t we kill you?“

They never deal with injustice, they just deflect from it.

56% of all abortions are by white women. 89% of which consider themselves Christian.

Instead of being up in my mentions pretending you give a #%#* about black babies being aborted, you hypocritical evangelicals need to go have a talk with your own wives, daughters & mistresses. You hypocritical bigots talking about Black abortions are the same ones who want to take away healthcare & assistance programs from the Black women you want to have the babies, stereotype them as irresponsible & promiscuous, and label the kids as ‘thugs’ when cops murder them.

We were taught that it is our Christian duty to forgive people...After all, Jesus forgave those who murdered Him...we’re supposed to forgive the most vile, racist white person because “they know not what they do.”...they know exactly what they’re doing 1/8
blavity.com/instead-of-ask… I believe in biblical teachings on forgiveness...I also believe they have been misunderstood...Black folks believe that unless we immediately forgive those who have invested in our...dehumanization, we risk becoming the...immoral creatures they are. 2/8

Y’all mad about this. I don’t care.
Post Traumatic Slavery Syndrome was coined after years of historical and psychological research and describes a set of behaviors, beliefs and actions associated with trauma experienced by African Americans...1/ PTSS is when centuries of slavery in the US, followed by systemic and structural racism and oppression, including lynching, Jim Crow laws, and unwarranted mass incarceration, result in maladaptive behaviors, which originate as survival strategies.

Just got a call from a right wing rag trying to protect racist, pro life, activist @AbbyJohnson her racist rant against me earlier this week.

They were trying to spin the incident into a case where SHE was responding to attacks on her to justify her bigotry.

They called...1/4 ... my church, the NAACP and other places trying to get comments about my so-called “derogatory rhetoric.“

Seems they’re working on the hippies to try to sanitize the right wing nazi bigot who spewed racist vitriol all over my TL...2/4

CRACK...

Black kids went to jail
Black men went to jail
Black women went to jail
Black families were devastated
Black communities were ravaged

OPIOIDS...

White kids got help
White men got help
White women got help
White families got sympathy
White communities are getting paid While pharmaceutical companies will pay $ billions to compensate white families devastated by opioids, the US government won’t be accountable to Black families devastated by crack when the CIA used funds from cocaine smuggled into the US to help the Contra rebels.

@realDonaldTrump This is Queens New York circa 1976. This is where Trump grew up, these were his neighbors. This is the neighborhood that molded him and created the vile, repugnant, racist in the White House.

@realDonaldTrump New York, where countless Black people have been murdered in acts of senseless, racist, violence, is where Trump lived, worked and played.

He called for 5 Black teens to be put to death over a rape they didn’t commit, but never said a word about the unjust murder of Blacks.

HOW JESUS CHRIST BECAME WHITE

“...Jesus Christ was depicted as a Black man with curly hair. Obviously they must have had enough evidence that proved Jesus was Black. Indeed, a lot of evidence still remained in fallen Rome itself that strongly indicated Jesus was a Black man...” “One of the major reasons the image of Jesus was changed from black to white was due to some of Michelangelo's paintings...He used members of his family as models. For instance, his cousin was the model for Jesus Christ. The paintings were carried out between 1508 and 1512.”
