"There are a lot of things to remember that the Trump presidency has surfaced, one of which is that there is always money, but rarely will. The cost of security for the Trump family and Cabinet alone could fund the arts and public education at record levels. Money is there. When it comes to black people, to poor people, to any marginalized group, the response is often, 'there's no money.' But it's a lie. Electoral politics is important if not only because our representatives determine how tax dollars get spent. We need to be those people. We could equitably fund public education, arts, healthcare, etc. It's not a matter of money. It is, and has always been, a matter of will.' -- DeRay Mckesson, multiple tweets, 2017-04-08 (emphasis added)
