Trump to have Rally at Town of Worst Race Massacre on Juneteenth

Trump to have Rally at Town of Worst Race Massacre on Juneteenth. I couldn't even make this up if I wanted to. Time to vote the racist out of office.

TX Now Has the 6th Highest COVID Cases & Under-Reporting 8,800

Our COVID cases are skyrocketing. Texas opened before meeting the Federal Guidelines, and we screwed up. Also, Abbott is still a liar.

The GOP's Cycle of Stupidity and Hate Ends With Education

The battle against education started over 150 years ago from the Confederacy and the war against education is still being fought by the modern-day GOP.

I'm so sad after this conversation I had with an older black relative.

He said to me that none of this stuff was going to change, no matter how much they protest. And that when all of this is over, it's going to be back to business as usual. He's 50 and we live in Texas.

I showed him that viral video of police brutality from Baytown, TX, which cops kneed a guy sitting on the ground in the face, not fighting, not resisting. He told me, "Of course, this is happening in every single small town in Texas, it always has been. These shit-kickers in rural Texas are not going to change."

I definitely believe things are going to change and we are at a catalyst right now, but he doesn't agree.

This is what this world is now, where older generations have accepted this as a norm and can't see how things could be different. It makes me want to fight harder for change.

In LA and MN they are talking about defunding police and refunneling money to education and healthcare. I've been listening to their ideas and some of them are really good, but in Texas.... besides voting blue and attending protests, I'm not sure what else I can do.

The Texas GOP Still Carry the Ideology of this Confederate General

The words of Confederate General Alexander Terrell are still echoed today in America's modern-day Republican party. The GOP is jumping through hoops right now to prevent Democrats from voting in November, under the guise of preventing voter fraud. This is a tactic white confederates have used for over 115 years. Vote like everything you’ve ever known is in danger. Because it is.

Texas State Senator Donna Campbell Calls the Left Terrorists

In Texas, the reason why the GOP is pushing so hard to stop people from voting to further increase voter suppression is to get and keep people like Donna Campbell in office. She votes and speaks against the best interests of not only Democrats but also people of color.

These Texas GOP State Senators STILL Don't Know That Black Lives Matter

54% of Texas’ residents are people of color. Every single GOP state senators seem to not care or be complicit to the fact that brown and black people are being systematically murdered by law enforcement.

Greg Abbott needs to change his tone and his policies. Right now, he's silent. And his silence regarding black lives matter is deafening.
