I’m paraphrasing but this is what Obama said to #EricaGarner. “I’m sorry for your loss but f**k you.” In 8 years Obama DOJ only prosecuted 2 cops. The one who killed #EricGarner was not one of them. He is still on the force and got overtime pay for appearing in court.

Erica not letting @ABC or @BarackObama play her. I was so proud of how bold and fearless and relentless she was.
Civilians in #EastGhouta who have been liberated by the Syrian army are celebrating in the streets by waving the flag of the Syrian Arab Republic and calling on the terrorists in the occupied parts of the region to leave. It is time for Western media to interview those civilians.
This may be the best so far. Four African American amateur photographers at the March on Washington. When the New York World-Telegram & Sun published it, the headline was "Like Everyday Tourists." (Library of Congress.)
Wrong on both. USA overthrew Ukraines govt in 2014. Put a nazi sympathetic govt into power in Ukraine. Crimea and Donbass rightly objected. And the west flooded syria with jihadi terrorists. Assad isn't a war criminal. The western powers interfering in syria are.

Replying to @ClarkeMicah
"We have no conflict with Russia" They're occupying Ukraine which is a breach of International Law and they agreed to the independence and territorial borders of Ukraine by treaty. They're backing Assad, a war criminal, who uses chemical weapons on his own people.

For those who somehow consider the Anti-Defamation League [ADL] an ally in the struggle against racism, please keep in mind that the group has been sending US police chiefs to Israel for "counter-terrorism" training since 2003.
Anarcho-neocons who smear anti-imperialist socialists as "red-brown" may in passing claim they don't support US-NATO imperialism, but they rarely if ever criticize it—and instead spend their time using lies and dishonest guilt-by-association tactics to demonize anti-imperialists.

Freedom Rider: Black Panther Movie: A Black Face in a High Place by Magaret Kimberley
Fans of Black Panther call critics “haters” who don’t know how to have fun, but “the lack of political education amongst ourselves is the bigger issue here.” http://bit.ly/2G5m8na
Look, I have liberal friends who are decent, loving people but who just lost their minds & ethical bearings during the Obama years. So when I tell them to be consistent they have to make link between opposition to the NRA & opposition to U.S. arms industry and war most get it.
