NAACP’s Derrick Johnson on Mississippi’s State Flag, Trump’s White Power Tweet & Boycotting Facebook



#white supremacy #News #trump #confederate flag #News & Politics
In a historic vote, the Mississippi state Legislature passed a bill to remove the Confederate battle emblem from its state flag, making it the last state to do so, after an ongoing nationwide uprising against racism and police brutality and a mounting pressure campaign in Mississippi. Derrick Johnson, president and CEO of the NAACP, says it has been a “long journey” to change the Mississippi flag. “We’ve had to fight both against the symbol of racial oppression, the revisionist history of racial oppression, and now the next step is to fight against the structural racism that’s embedded in the public policy, not only in the state of Mississippi but across the country,” Johnson says. He also addresses how President Trump shared a video on social media of a Trump supporter chanting “white power,” as well as the growing boycott of Facebook for allowing the spread of hateful and false information on its platform.

I’m glad they finally took down that flag! Aren’t lynchings still happening, but they’re now saying it’s suicide?! Equality means equal wealth worldwide! Capitalists are so insane they think it’s right to give all the money to a few rich people...No one should have to live with DEBT because debt is slavery too, so we’re all still slaves! Rent is slavery too! Wage slavery is slavery too!

Great stuff ! But don't allow these Symbolic gestures become a substitute for genuine Transformative Social Justice Policy...ie. A.D.O.S Reparations Now and end Qualified Police Immunity in Dismantling White Privilege and Hegemony.

Facebook tried to take down my extra page started by a Bernie Sanders group. I got it back by asking why. They said because you put political posts..okay. So I had to Identify with politics so I could post political posts, even though I also post on Climate change, and protests and more. Boogaloo is still there on their own page doing their hate.
