  1. End this ugly and nastiness , of the seed of racial discord ,the lack of intelligence of genealogy of the races , in discipline and looting ,the injustices, the unamended Laws . End this MADNESS now.

  2. Twice as many whites are killed in police custody as blacks in the US each yr. The News doesn’t report that. These are not protesters they are looters. LoL

  3. The people need to fight back this is oppression it makes no difference if you are white or black you aren't free.

  4. AMERICA NEVER WAS A TRUE DEMOCRACY FOR BLACK PEOPLE AND IS UNDER GODS JUDGMENT FOR HER CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY

  5. With all the guns in America nobody shot a cop yet? I’m surprised.

  6. Both parties are racist. It used to be the Democrat's that were racist, now the racist have hijacked the Republican Party .
    it is not the republic party that I signed for when I became a republican. They are now just like Arabs.

  7. Well you are a demon RAT. LOVE YOU so much PRESIDENT DONALD J TRUMP. Jersey is a mess. YOU ARE CAUSING DEVIDE WE ARE NOT LIKE YOU DEMONRATS

  8. Systematic change must happen in our society otherwise dark days are ahead of us and none of us will be happy to go trough those days

  9. Of course they dont include the native tribal populations which have been hit the worst in every possible way. Because no one cares about them, including black people. Just saying.

  10. The main problem is classism not racism. Declaring racism as the problem helps to divide the the underclass. And what's white privilege??? WTF?

  11. We need to stop propping the corporate structure for a chance for jobs and letting the 1%make money off the backs of the lower classes

  12. Love each other hug each other guy's. Show the deep respect each other.. AS WELL GOD WILL BRING US MERCY.. GOD BLEES AND PEACE BE WITH YOU ALL.
