This is the smug, arrogant, white supremacist, mindset that has oppressed and enslaved the Black community since Lincoln. It's disgusting. It's time to grab the scalpel and carve this racist cancer from the soul of America for good starting Nov 3. Oh, and fuck Jared Kushner.


NEW YORKERS! Do you have *digital* ad space anywhere in NYC that The Lincoln Project can use through Election Day? If you do, contact us here: We won't be silenced. We won't be intimidated. And we won't stop until the world knows the truth.
