Today, people buying groceries in a predominantly Black #Buffalo community were shot by a White man who believes the hate-filled propaganda that there’s a movement to replace White people. White Supremacist Ideology + Hate + Irresponsible Fear Mongering + Guns = 10 people dead.

For some, a slap at the Oscars is easier to condemn and to which to reply “I don’t condone violence” than the search for and slaughter of Black people by an avowed white supremacist. Because “I don’t condone white supremacy” is both a mirror and a magnifying glass.

Of course, I believe “Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.” I also believe that much of the hate simmering across the world is fueled by racism and white supremacist ideology. We have to drive out hate with love, yes. We have to condemn and eradicate racism, too.

In legislation and legislators. In media. In platforms that indoctrinate to the hate-filled, power hungry ideology. In every area where racism persists and is perpetuated. So choosing love isn’t a passive choice. Love drives out hate, meets needs + dismantles injustice.

When all the national media leaves Buffalo and the photo opps are done, please continue to love this community. It's going to take a lot of time to heal.

Remembering Brother Malcolm on his 97th birthday. Read 'The Autobiography of Malcolm X.' History books don't tell his story. And media and government painted the picture that they wanted us to see. #MalcolmX

Changemaker, indeed. Grateful to and for you, Mari (@LittleMissFlint).
Mari Copeny, who was known as 'Little Miss Flint' after writing a letter to then-President Barack Obama asking him to visit her hometown of Flint, Michigan, in 2016 when she was 8, was presented with the Changemaker Award at the Billboard Music Awards on May 15, 2022.

As long as we push “stop hate crimes,” instead of/without “eradicate white supremacy and racism,” we aren’t dealing with the real issue. We’ll get more of the same. And that’s tragic. #EradicateWhiteSupremacy #EradicateRacism #NowIsTheTime

Agony And it doesn’t have to be this way. Denounce white supremacist ideology (@GOPLeader @LeaderMcConnell) Pass legislation to get it out of gaming, policing, etc. (@SpeakerPelosi @SenSchumer) Educate our children on the truth about it Pass stricter gun laws
"You expect us to keep doing this over and over again, forgive and forget," said Garnell Whitfield, a former fire commissioner who lost his mother, Ruth Whitfield, in Saturday's mass shooting in Buffalo. nyti.ms/3yKmc9l

Heartbroken again. We have so much work to do to fight hate, racism, and gun violence. “White Supremacist Ideology + Hate + Irresponsible Fear Mongering + Guns = 10 people dead.” — @BerniceKing

May 17, 1954, the day the decision in Brown vs. Board of Education was issued, marks a defining moment in the history of the United States. The Supreme Court declared the doctrine of “separate but equal” unconstitutional. naacpldf.org/brown-vs-board/
