Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza told the graduating class of LaGuardia Community College last night that she found former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey‘s testimony before the Senate yesterday “terrifying”—but said she became hopeful, arguing that marginalized groups are the ones who will make “America great again.”
Comey asserted that President Donald Trump fired him last month to undermine the ongoing probe into his campaign’s ties with Russia, labeled the president’s claims that claimed that agents at the bureau had lost faith in him as “lies” and said Trump pressured him to end FBI’s investigation of ex-national security adviser Gen.

I am ashamed to say I am American, I’ve been since I was 14 and saw how cops have a badge to kill innocent people; especially if those people are not white, and then walk away from the crime with the same bloody guns in their slimy, blood stained hands. If you’re not American and reading this, please know this government does NOT represent ALL of the people! I must post this because I’ve got a busy schedule however I also have announcements…
