Day 209: A Continued Culture War

Donald Trump sees shame in the removal of Confederate monuments from public places, as local officials move them to their rightful place in the trash heap of history.

There’s not much more poetic waxing I can do about this continued culture war. Trump is a racist. There are so many examples of this. The confederacy sought to destroy our country and uphold the institution of slavery in America. This too, is an indisputable fact.

Through his cabinet officials, including but not limited to Jeff Sessions’ Justice Department, Betsy Devos’ Education Department and Scott Pruitt’s EPA, Trump is going out of his way to make sure life in America is harder for minorities.

Enough of me writing about this nonsense, here are some organization’s you can donate to that are fighting these awful policies on the front lines:
