White people, wake up! Start supporting your black brothers and sisters.

A Michigan woman says her grandson has endured racist bullying at a high school that’s surrounded this week by pickup trucks waving Confederate flags.

The demonstration in Auburn, which is more than 95 percent white, began Tuesday with six trucks but swelled Wednesday to dozens of pickups bearing Confederate flags and Gadsden flags associated with the tea party movement, reported MLive.

A few counter-protesters showed up with rainbow flags as a show of support for LGBT rights, and Bay County sheriff’s deputies stood by in case violence broke out.

“That flag does not stand for the Confederacy, it stands for racism — and those kids know that and the parents know that,” said Lahoma Buckley, whose grandson is one of the school’s only black students.


You can do something immediately by boycotting ANY institution or company that abuses people of color.

I'm so sick and tired...

(Starbucks and LA Fitness this week come to mind).

3. Yes, but through action, not passively reading about abuses.
