They werent prevented from voting for hundreds of years causing a lack of ethnic representation within their government. They simply FELT their vote didnt count the same. How can one not see these clear racial double-standard based inequalities and injustices?
#BlueLivesMatter and #AllLivesMatter was SO important for them to shout a few months back; however, it clearly didn't seem to matter to those same people when they felt a mere moment of (non-existent) oppression. They haven't experienced 400+ years of systemic oppression.
They weren't red-lined out of housing loans and forced into intentionally underfunded neighborhoods, or segregated into intentionally underfunded schools, or had their homes demolished for highways to be built, or lynched in the streets, or shot in their homes while sleeping.
I remember @DenverPolice shooting pepperballs at a pregnant woman while she was simply trying to go home in June. I remember large swathes of military and police and barricades in front of @WhiteHouse. I remember police taking persons into marked vans without a word.

BREAKING >> McConnell: “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”
Replying to @TVietor08: Fuck this guy. Mitch McConnell is a lying, craven hack who only respects power. Our Get Mitch fund will split your donation…
Senate Dems, collective, abandoned us on Kavanaugh. We are owed an effort - from all of them - this time. A Ginsburgian effort. Figure it out. Kick. Scream. Do not let an impeached, rapist president steal our human right to control our bodies. Fucking represent us goddamnit.
"We're gonna win four more years in the White House, and then we'll negotiate, because based on the way we were treated, we're probably entitled to another four years after that" -- Trump, slurring, began his rally in Nevada by teasing that he intends to serve more than two terms
