This says everything.

I grew up with Reagan as a governor. He destroyed California’s education funding and undercut equitable housing laws. 40 years later, our schools and neighborhoods are more segregated than before Brown vs. Board of Education. Californian is still reeling from his “leadership”.

I never was as scared for my family and my country as I am now. I was never more scared for marginalized folks. I’d be scared for white folks too, if they weren’t the ones who elected this clown. (And, YES, that includes white women.)

The fact that folks want to “just wait and see” me when he’s already done unthinkable acts is just a sign there are millions of Americans who will choose not to see, whatever he and his party does. There are “progressive” white folks who will see and choose to look the other way (because “it’s so upsetting”) while folks get literally and figuratively beaten down, pushed out, assaulted.

Some of us have no choice but to resist. What about those who are not targeted?
