God Is In This
Ta-Nehisi Coates words were like King David’s slingshot against Goliath…
Author Ta-Nehisi Coates told lawmakers at a House committee hearing that the debate over reparations is “a dilemma of inheritance.” Coates called out Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for saying a day earlier that reparations were not “a good idea” because no one who is currently living is responsible. Coates told lawmakers that many of the inequalities created by slavery persist today, including in the form of economic and health disparities.
🎵🎤Who’s that man I see
underneath the hanging tree
he looks just like me
so tell me am I really free
could have been my mother
crying for my brother
and everybody, everybody, everybody
praying for peace
but who’s gonna protect us from the police🎵🎤

Danny Glover is 72 and his Black grandparents were sharecroppers and tennant farmers. I’m 31 and my Black grandmother grew up a sharecropper.
Even if you throw out redlining, the prison industrial complext, etc we’re not even close to being removed from the effects of slavery. https://twitter.com/KendraJames_/status/1141373854691893248?s=17
The deficit was ‘generational.’
Ta-Nehisi Coates was ready! The Spirit of the Lord was with him.
Watch the two sistas behind Coates when he finishes his opening statement. Check the smiles. Y’all know that’s how we do. It means you DID the damn thing. Thank you and goodnight!
Ta-Nehisi Coates touched the soul. He was ready! God was with him!
Ta-Nehisi burned the shit out of McTrutle’s hard, foul, ugly, racist SHELL
Mitch McConnell’s dismissal of reparations was so offensive and insulting for the horror enslaved people suffered. How damn dare you!
Direct Holy rebuke of Mitch McConnell….
The inheritance of slavery👏👏
He nailed it. He really did nail The Turtle. Broke it down.
