St. Louis police trampled a woman-Tell the St. Louis Mayor: Take a stand against police violence. Protect the right to protest in your city.

Police are out of control in St. Louis, and the Mayor has done nothing to stop them. Over the weekend of protests following the not-guilty verdict absolving Jason Stockley of accountability in the killing of Anthony Lamar Smith, police have taunted protesters saying Ferguson-era chants like “Whose streets? Our streets?”1–in the same manner of neo-nazi terrorists

ESPN silencing Black journalist for speaking out on racism

Monday night on Twitter, ESPN SportsCenter host Jemele Hill called Donald Trump “a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself with other white supremacists.” Because of this, ESPN has publicly reprimanded her and the White House has taken the unprecedented step of calling for her to be fired – a clear assault on the First Amendment. 1 2 Tell

A lifetime of Trump’s hateful agenda

Donald Trump is setting a record pace of nominating young, extreme right-wing judges for lifetime appointments to the bench, and the Senate Judiciary Committee is the only group that can stop him.1 Letting Trump stack the courts while he and his administration are under investigation for possible collusion with the Russian government was bad enough.

Your credit card funds the KKK

Did you know your credit card could be helping to fund the Ku Klux Klan?

Sign the petition: It’s not “alt-right,” it’s white supremacy

Tell traditional corporate media outlets, including the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and NBC: “Stop sanitizing and normalizing white supremacists and Nazis. Stop using the term ‘alt-right.’” “Alt-right” has got to go. Donald Trump has emboldened white supremacists across the country to emerge from the sewers of the extreme right wing

He called the police on Hurricane Harvey victims looking for food

He called the police on them for trying to get food. ABC News anchor, Tom Llamas, in Houston to report on Hurricane Harvey, spotted Texans who had recently lost everything entering a grocery store. Instead of reporting on the desperate circumstances with compassion, he actually diverted first responder resources that could be used to save stranded families–and

Cardi B-“Colin Kaepernick, as long as you kneel with us, we’re gonna be standing for you.”

We’re a week from the NFL’s “Opening Night” and Colin Kaepernick is still being blackballed. But the pressure is continuing to mount on the NFL. In the last week alone, a dozen Cleveland Browns players took a knee during the national anthem – including the first white player to join the protest, more than 1,000 people rallied outside the NFL’s headquarters in

Sign the petition: Reject racist climate deniers at USDA

The petition to the Senate reads: “Sam Clovis is a racist climate-change denier with zero experience in food or agriculture policy. Reject his nomination to be chief scientist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.” If you thought Donald Trump’s war on people of color and the climate couldn’t get any worse, think again: Trump has nominated

All symbols of the Confederacy must come down

Last weekend, Charlottesville, Virginia was the epicenter of white supremacist Nazi hate. On Friday, white supremacist Nazi protesters marched through the streets of Charlottesville carrying torches and chanting “white lives matter” and “we will not be replaced.” Saturday, after a day of racist, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBTQ protest, a terrorist slammed his car into a crowd of

Sign the petition: Sign Colin Kaepernick

Shut up and play. Stay in your place.These are the messages the National Football League (NFL) is sending to its players with its racist blackballing of Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick took a powerful stand last season for the Black Lives Matter movement and against systemic racism by refusing to stand during the national anthem. Meanwhile, NFL

Colin Kaepernick is being black balled. Prove the Ravens ownership wrong- call their office now at (912) 501-3917 and tell them you support Kaepernick!

Colin Kaepernick is being black balled. Let’s ride for him. Multiple reports confirm that NFL owners, many of whom were major contributors to Trump’s inauguration,1 are refusing to even talk to the same quarterback who led the 49ers to their first Super Bowl appearance in almost 20 years. The Baltimore Ravens have publicly said that Ravens’ fans

The man who killed Jordan Edwards indicted for a 2nd crime!
