    Biden is the most racist POTUS in our history, locking up MILLIONS of black men. Biden’s legacy is as a MASS INCARCERATION zealot. It’s his crowning political achievement. Biden wrote Reagan’s drug war and Clinton’s Crime Bill….. WITH REPUBLICAN KKK ALIGNED congressmen, Strom Thurmond FFS. Show African Americans telling the TRUTH about Biden. African Americans in California hate Kamala Harris because they KNOW HER. She locked up black men, overturned WRONGFUL CONVICTIONS to prolong imprisonment, pushed endless prison labor, and served the prison industrial complex that BIDEN CREATED. She is a mini racist Biden. It’s why Biden picked her.

    attacking their god does not work, so i believe hold the mirror up and asking does this match your moral standards is the person you would want in your family. after ww2 if you asked a flag waving german (1930’s) how they felt about hitler (1946<) they all say if i only knew i would never have (i am not talking about the nazi). unfortunately the maga and gop are blindfolded by the properganda same as germany 1930's. help hold the mirror up pass it on and repost pleas

    “Chain Gang All-Stars” is wild, beautiful, scathing, inspiring, disturbing, and disturbingly entertaining. He’s definitely “pretty good at this!” Thank you, Seth & Co., for continuing to feature great contemporary authors of literary fiction. 💜❤️💙
