Fellow Zionists: The March For Racial Justice Apologized— Now ‘Show The Hell Up’

The March for Racial Justice is planning on making up for its Yom Kippur flop by holding a sister march on October 1, the day after the Jewish holiday, in various cities around the country. Fellow Zionists, mark your calendars. Show. The. Hell. Up.

You may think this isn’t about you — but you’re wrong. Our peoples were once inseparable. We sat on each other’s boards, (ZOA-NAACP) we helped build schools together (Rosenwald-Booker T), we are connected because we are people of soul, we know what it’s like to struggle but more importantly we know what it’s like to overcome. Our ancestors fought together, prayed together, died together and marched together.

It’s time for us to be the generation that marches together again.
