A number of popular celebrities are saying they’re ‘taking responsibility’ for racism and hate in our country and are asking other white Americans to do the same, in a new confessional social media video and campaign launched Wednesday.

The campaign, launched with a website, “ITakeResponsibility.org,” “was created to stand up for our Black friends and family in America. Our goal is to rally the white community, to provide education and encourage action. Our mission is to ensure this takes place.”

“We cannot sit idle while systemic racism and police brutality continue throughout our country,” the website states. “Racism is personal, it is local, and every situation needs to be identified, recognized, and addressed. At the most personal levels and regardless of the circumstance, these incidents need to become teachable moments. Enough is enough.”

“This begins with white men and women taking responsibility for their personal role in eradicating racism in America — taking a stand and committing to change.” -iTakeResponsibility.org

“Today, #ITakeResponsibility for my role in eradicating racism in America,” actress Julianne Moore wrote on Twitter Thursday with the video. “Unless white America acknowledges its privilege, systemic racism will persist. Act Now. What will you commit to? https://itakeresponsibility.org. @NAACP @itakeresponsibility #itakeresponsibility #blacklivesmatter”

The website asks users to sign a pledge committing to their supposed hateful actions from a list of statements including “turning a blind eye to racism,” “saying ‘I don’t see color’, “not educating my kids on systemic racism,” among other statements. Further, one can pledge to change their actions by ‘demanding for police accountability,’ ‘support organizations on the front lines,’ ‘donate to families affected,’ and ‘mobilize voting efforts.’

The list of dozens of celebrities that have made the pledge, includes singer Kesha, actress Debra Messing, actor Jamie Foxx, Olympian Aly Raisman.

Stacy Abrams: ‘No such thing as heartbeat at 6 weeks’, ‘manufactured’ for men to ‘take control of a woman’s body’

“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams claimed during an event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta last week. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”

As National Review reports, even her own man-hating rhetoric is antithetical to the website of Planned Parenthood which said a “very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop” during the fifth to sixth week of pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood later amended its website to more closely reflect pro-abortion messaging against heartbeat laws, which ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Now the site says a “part of the embryo starts to show cardiac activity” during that time.

Abrams is running for governor in Georgia in a rematch against incumbent Governor Brian Kemp. Abrams lost to Kemp in 2018 by more than 54,000 votes. Additionally, Abrams has never concededto Kemp and has claimed the 2018 election was “stolen from Georgians.”

Abrams words were to suggest that Georgia’s heartbeat law shouldn’t be referred to as the “Fetal Heartbeat Bill.” Her reasoning? Because “that’s medically false, biologically a lie.”

When The View co-host Alyssa Farah asked Abrams “Do you think there should be any legal limits on abortion, such as the third trimester or viability?” Abrams responded: “I believe that abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision…Arbitrary politically-defined timelines are deeply problematic because they ignore the reality of medical and physiological issues.”

“Abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision … The limit should not be made by politicians who don’t understand basic biology or apparently basic morality,” she added.

Kemp is up 6.6 percentage points in RCP polling average over Abrams.
