It’s a little more complicated than that. Yes, many unions were complicit in racism, but once black people broke into them, they were integral to the rises in black people’s ability to gain decent wages in the manufacturing sector. More radical unions like the IWW welcomed black people from the start, but they were Read more

I’m here for this. Btw, this is why local elections and DA elections count people. Protests are cool, but when we show up to vote then some shit will actually get done.

They’re right to call out evangelicals. I never understood how someone can go to church every Sunday, hear and read the teachings of Jesus, but then leave those values outside when they go in the voting booth to support candidates and policies that seek to take benefits and programs away from people in need.

Dumb Nazi trolls are now “I know you are, but what am I?”-ing the Black commenters of The Root? Smells like the trash is full. Also, how did this dumb fuck get out the grays?

Hey Nikki, remember when you were running for governor and Representative Jakey Knotts called you a raghead and other insults? Pretty sure we agreed that all that was pretty racist without any media prompting. He even lost his seat and got his name taken off the boat ramp called after him. Read more

Really, all we need to know is that they fly the Confederate battle flag, and not the break-away countries actual national flag.  That’s all you need to know about this “heritage.”

The sole purpose of the Confederacy and the Civil War for the South was about making utterly sure they could continue to own black people.
