"The modern GOP itself, since the 1960s, has been fashioned on opposition to Black civil rights & freedoms. That was the basis of the Goldwater campaign in 64, the Nixon campaigns in 68 and 72, the Reagan campaign in 1980, on and on." @joelowndes

The last four years was not an aberration. Trumpism represents a long history of white supremacy. Electing Biden and expelling Trump are helpful, but woefully insufficient in addressing white supremacy. #UndertheBlacklight @AAPolicyForum
