Why do white people fear and hate us? Are they so afraid through reading and acquiring knowledge that, as a collective group, we would seek their ultimate destruction? Is this why the country’s history is replete with white violence delivered upon Black people?
Have you ever been to a party, just sipping a drink, munching on snacks, chatting with whoever you came with, and checking out some fine-looking people when suddenly, religious zealots took over, separated LGBTQ couples and forced women and...
We are at war right now and we just lost a major battle. Those intent on crushing our democracy are energized by their coup over the majority and they're frothing at the mouth to build upon it.
