#BlackSummerIs #Charlottesville #WinningJustice #NoBloodMoney #UntilJusticeIsReal

On the one-year anniversary of the deadly Unite the Right march in Charlottesville, Virginia, it’s time we force America to wake up! Opening today, the @officialspikelee, #BlacKkKlansman, highlights the true story of how one man was able to infiltrate and destabilize the Klan, even temporarily neutralizing David Duke.
Klan membership has declined, but Duke and people like him remain as influential as ever because they’re able to have prominent profiles online and collect funding quickly through a variety of financial platforms.
Companies like @Discover and @AmericanExpress continue to allow groups like Patriot Prayer to process donations on their storefront, while @Amazon sells racist propaganda for nearly a dozen hate groups and countless white nationalist leaders on their platform. This has to end.
This weekend, go see #BlacKkKlansman AND call out these money hungry companies profiting off hate and taking #BloodMoney. Go to www.bloodmoney.org

“Let’s stop telling lies. The United States Of America’s foundation is genocide of native people and slavery!” @officialspikelee @time
Patiently waiting for #blackkklansman #TellBlackStories #Charlottesville

One year after white supremacists and neo-nazis converged on #Charlottesville, hailing their racist president and murdering Heather Heyer, there are STILL corporations profiting off of these hate groups. We’ve cut them off from 175 funding sources, but guess who’s still taking the #BloodMoney? @Amazon @discover @americanexpress - tell them to end their support of white supremacists and hate groups now.

Prosecutors are elected officials who are supposed to hold police accountable. Bob McCulloch failed to seek justice for #MikeBrown, but the community turned their pain into power & organized for lasting change in St. Louis. #MikeBrownForever #WinningJustice #MikeBrown

Almost four years to the day after the murder of #MikeBrown, Black people lifted their voices and demanded change last night. This is why we organize, this is why we fight until justice is real. We’ll never forget Mike Brown.

This is what happens when you come for @repmaxinewaters. Today in San Bernardino, we showed the County Board of Supervisors that at least 75,000 people want Deputy DA Michael Selyem fired for his vicious, misogynistic, and racist remarks about Maxine. #FIRESelyem #BeLikeMaxine

Winning Justice is holding the police accountable when they break the law and commit violence against Black communities. This week, we remember Philando Castile, Sandra Bland, Eric Garner and Alton Sterling - all murdered July 5 - July 17 between 2014 and 2016. #WinningJustice #ComingSoon

Nice for what? Civility won’t save us, and it never will, not when babies are being kidnapped and families ripped apart because of racism, hate and xenophobia. #BeLikeMaxine featuring @ijeomaoluo @jenctegtz @melodyehsani @amberjphillips @shaunking @docmellymel @lsarsour @ashleemariepreston @osopepatrisse @brandingbrandi @rashadny @chasinggarza #WinnieWong #dream

“This is a moral and human rights issue that everyone should be involved with, especially Black people. It's happened to our people, it's happened to the Native people and we didn't have anybody speaking up for us. We don't want to see this happen to other people. This is not just immigrant families, it's America. This is unAmerican.” - Rhonda

"Today, the Supreme Court enabled Donald Trump’s dream to make America white again. The justices are legalizing an environment where our Muslim friends feel unsafe in their own homes, schools and communities. This ban shows us exactly what Trump has always stood for--racism and discrimination over equality and justice. Xenophobia has no place in our politics or our laws. We will continue to organize, mobilize and elect leaders who can ensure that no person has to fear for their safety because of their religion or the color of their skin.” @rashadny #SupremeCourt #SCOTUS #NoMuslimBanEver
