Because for many, it is easier to follow than to lead. Leading requires thinking and learning and using your conscience and your brain. Leading can mean taking a risk.
Following requires nothing more than doing what everyone else you know does and thinks.

The media isn't dividing us, the actions of trump, racism, White Supremacy, income and wealth disparity, and bigotry are.

 

Sorry, but osting a meme will not change that reality.


This, 100%. Just because there is systemic racism, that doesn’t mean many black and white people get along every day. They do. The system is still stacked against black people.

The regressives try to conflate fighting Trump's racism with straight up political attacks. It is like saying the prosecution of an axe murderer is all political.

Well said and to the point. Racism must be called out at every turn and every time that it is promoted. 

Thank you!

I hope all saw what happened today with Trump and racism. Yesterday he told all he was not happy that his supporters did their chant, and he tried to stop it. He told us it was wrong. Well guess what today he now tells us just the opposite. His supporters did nothing wrong, and the women should go back. This is par for the course for Trump. He lies about everything and destroys everything, and everybody he touches. He has done this over and over. We know a large portion of his supporters are far right christian EV., and his support in the Reb. party has increased 4% in the last week or so. How do these far right christians justify their support to someone like Trump who breaks every thing Christianity stands for. It is like they sold their soul to the devil. I look at Germany when Hitler came to power and you find the same type of thing happened there. Why?

Calling out racism - especially that of tRump and his MAGAT followers - is a patriotic act.

We (America) need a Blue Wave in 2020, removing trump from office. Then he will be prosecuted and placed behind bars.

I whole-heartedly agree @ChasKy53 !

 

We, true America loving Americans, need to get Trump out as well as the horde of GOP legislators who silently stand behind, in support, and in fear of him and the RW, mob-like, rally-ists who voted for them.
