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
