White people in the American colonies fought to be free of the British while simultaneously enslaving Africans and slaughtering indigenous Americans. Make it make sense...

Steve Hotze, conservative Texas powerbroker, to Gov. Greg Abbott: “I want to make sure he has National Guard down here and they have the order to shoot to kill if any of these son-of-a-bitch people start rioting. That’s the only way you restore order.” https://t.co/xli74IaLUf

@CharlesMBlow You have a right to post it as often as you like. You lost me at get used to it

And so interesting that I feel nothing about this loss. The earth didn’t tremble, neither did the sky crack. https://t.co/vEV2DL5Urp

Quoted @WDeepkimchi

@CharlesMBlow @DrJasonJohnson There are some who pick up what they thought was a woman and because the trans didn't reveal themselves untlil too late, fly into a rage and kill them. Not saying its justified but it happens all the time.

Also, this is minor and an excuse often used. These men almost always *know* even if the words are not explicitly spoken. The “they didn’t tell me” lie is just an excuse to unleash violent self loathing on the bodies of trans people. https://t.co/X8QvoU9rOn

Analysis: It’s far too early for Democrats to measure the drapes, but it’s worth considering the implications if the party sweeps on Nov. 3. https://t.co/MGx6Nxi7UG #RCTop10

These are what I call inverse black widow killings: supposedly *straight* men have sex with gay or trans people, but because their shame & self loathing are so deep, they kill them after so no one finds out. That closet is full of dead bodies https://t.co/sSQczpRvmY

@CharlesMBlow So we (White people) are all evil and we can’t evolve? Mistakes made by our ancestors should not be your only assesmet of us. We know the past let’s start looking to the future.

Ppl who enslaved anothers & enforced that bondage w terror & violence was evil. PERIOD. Anyone who was ok w others doing so was evil. PERIOD. Anyone who attended a lynching was evil. PERIOD. Anyone who jeered & spat at children integrating schools was evil. PERIOD. Etc, etc, etc. https://t.co/F8FeiuzMFT

This feels to me far fetched, but fascinating. But, what do I know. Trump is president of the fricking United States! —-> How Trump Could Lose the Election—And Still Remain President | Opinion https://t.co/e68ztztIap

Black people in America didn’t become “citizens” until the ratification of the 14th Amendment on July 9, 1868, nearly a century after the Declaration of Independence. For a century America celebrated freedom and liberty while holding HUMAN BEINGS in bondage. Make it make sense…

@CharlesMBlow YOU are rediculous!

Ridiculous… https://t.co/XFbTtVyQjn

Yes, I will repost this portion of Frederick Douglass’s 1852 speech every #fourthofjuly. Get used to it https://t.co/OCtPSYLTlf

When the #fourthofjuly was first celebrated in 1777, one year after the Declaration of Independence was written, one in five people in the colonies were African HUMANS enslaved by white people. Make it make sense…

If I had 600 human beings (the enslaved) working for me for free out of terror for their lives and fear of the lash, I too would accumulate enough wealth that I’d have plenty of time to sit and ponder and be a philosopher (Thomas Jeffereson). #Happy4thofJuly

Quoted @markmobility

Mississippi election commissioner: "I'm concerned about voter registration in Mississippi," the commissioner wrote. "The blacks are having lots (of) events for voter registration. People in Mississippi have to get involved, too." https://t.co/m4p7iWpMN2

I’m confused: are the black citizens not *people*?… https://t.co/p8PS2e97Ze

Quoted @DonaldJTrumpJr

This is ridiculous already. How can they let this guy possibly be the leader of anything let alone the leader of the free world? These daily mistakes are not gaffes they are a serious issue for someone who could have the nuclear football, they show a lapse of basic reasoning. https://t.co/ksGSfBTabU

I’d vote for a pumpkin with a candle in it before I’d vote for your racist, pxxxy-grabbing daddy, junior… https://t.co/p5kkiNfIUl

Quoted @DataScienceOne

@CharlesMBlow Some don't know his original draft contained a section that condemned slavery. But the southern colonies demanded that it be removed. https://t.co/n6BPVOJ79K

But he was an enslaver of over 600 HUMANS in his lifetime and only freed two! TWO!!! If he disapproved of slavery he should have demonstrated it. HE DIDN’T!!! Miss me with these apologist rationales. https://t.co/FBNPT9kWuZ

Jefferson was the enslaver of 100s of African HUMANS when he wrote the Declaration of Independence, when he wrote, “all men are created equal” & by endowed God w “certain unalienable Rights,” including “Liberty & the pursuit of Happiness.” Let that sink in while u prepare ur BBQ.
