So many don’t want to believe that slavery is still a practice in 2017.  It certainly is, a sad sad thing.  I want to do more than this post, but this post is still necessary.  #LetUsFree #prayforlibya #stopslaveryinlibya #endslavery #nobannowall #myblackisbleeding RED ALERT 🚨!

They will try to cloud your vision, temper your passion, question your faith, limit your resources and silence your voice. But you just keep on keeping on!  Dreams have purpose; you have to first dream it to achieve. #IgotRadicalDreams •

@kaepernick7: Every year we participate in a tradition that is rooted in tragedy. Try as we must to make Thanksgiving about food, family, fun, and forming fond memories, it doesn’t erase the fact that the Natives of this land were (and continue to be) the original victims of American systemic oppression. 
To help fight that oppression, as part of my Million Dollar Pledge, I donated $50k to UCSF for the Mni Wiconi Health Clinic partnership at Standing Rock to support the relatives there with their medical needs.

At 4am this morning, we rode the ferry to Alcatraz Island for the Indigenous People's Sunrise Gathering, in solidarity with the many tribes/nations visiting the space to not only honor their ancestors, and celebrate their culture, but also pay respects to those that participated in the 19 month occupation of Alcatraz Island in an effort to force the American Government to honor the Treaty of Fort Laramie. 
I was humbled to receive one of the highest honors from one of the elders. Thank you for allowing me to share this space and honor your heritage and history. And also thank you to @mann1e & @oocelestialoo for the help connecting. ✊🏾
