Democracy is when unelected intelligence agencies conduct propaganda campaigns against their own citizens in concert with the unelected billionaire business owners to crush workers movements and make sure that poor people don't accidentally decide to empower themselves.

People say I'm being divisive when I say that America was founded on racism and white supremacy. The reason for that is twofold: 1. A lot of white people don't understand what "white supremacy" means 2. MOST PEOPLE learned the white supremacist version of US history A thread

We all know what would have happened if a Black man broke into a White family’s home while blackout drunk and threatened to kill the mother and small children. We all know why this officer is free and still employed by the NYPD. We all know what this says about Black lives.

This is one of the most famous paintings in American history: Declaration of Independence. I decided to put red dots on all the men who held slaves. Next time someone puts them on a pedestal and says we can't question their judgement on guns or whatever, show them this image.

That’s not what that means. You’re confusing different constitutional ideas here. The RIGHTS of the minority cannot be trampled by the majority. But ELECTIONS are all about majorities. That’s democracy 101.

Baltimore resident Leon Haughton likes to have honey in his tea, so he brought back a few jars from a visit to family in Jamaica. Customs officers seized the honey, and claimed it was liquid meth. He spent 82 days in jail. He lost both his jobs.
