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, “,” “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.”

“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? @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.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’



ukraine tanks scaled

Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social,  “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”

Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”

It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.

Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.

And the escalation of war is visible.

Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.

Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.

Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”

F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.

Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
