To be fair... they were stupid enough to elect him.

He is gaining plenty of attention by tweeting out utter lies that others will refute. Ugh!

He is an evil man.

He’s always been an unctuous elitist

Today is a perfect day to talk about #reparations #mlkweekend Posted @withregram • @aclu_nationwide When the emancipation proclamation was signed, Black people were promised land that would have given them access to the wealth they themselves had created — but were ultimately denied it.

At the same time, as Martin Luther King, Jr. pointed out in some of his last work, the government gave away millions of acres in the west and midwest to white people. King said, “not only did they give the land, they built land grant colleges with government money to teach them how to farm; not only that, they provided county agents to further their expertise in farming; not only that, they provided low interest rates in order that they could mechanize their farms.”

Reparations are a way to begin closing the roots of the economic, social, and political inequality that was deliberately imposed on our communities. #womenforprogress #wfphighlight
