    Its time to Stand up for George Floyd & not hide in a bunker like a Bunker Baby!

  3. Americans do not care about a speech from MSM Pons.
    Americans want the Medical Examiners Office to be arrested & locked up for aiding and abetting a MURDER.
    Where is the Supreme Court??!

  4. Yes, its time

  5. What can a black man do but fight, Racism is not going away unless we are willing to die.

    Orbis Spike 1610 is Elder to your 1619 projection…
    stick a needle in the eye of truth….

  8. George Zimmerman’s name?

  9. The problem isn’t that you are being held down. It’s that people like Sharpton, Obama who promises to lift you up.

    And you wait, wait, wait….
    When instead you shouldn’t wait for anything, anyone to lift you up. You lift yourself up. You lift others up. Don’t give others the hope of change that robs you of the inertia of making changes yourself.

    Understand?

    i like to think that if there’s an afterlife, Mr. Floyd, now there, has finally understood why the pain of the knee upon his neck-unto-death, had happened from an extreme necessity cried by a Wounded society! May he now Rest In Peace and be among those who are called to become Messengers of Goodness, Fairness, and God… here’s looking at you, Mr. Floyd!

  11. Man! I can’t believe they dusted him off and brought him back out! Go get em tiger!!! It’s good to see him again because you know just how screwed the desperate Democrat Party really is now. Don’t worry America,Trump will fix thing’s in the next four and a half years. Just be patient and try not to set each other on fire in the meantime.

  12. I watched the entire eulogy Mr. Sharpton gave. It had no memorial to George Floyd himself and everything about the cause. He didn’t mention the word Jesus Christ one time and took shots at our president. It is the Democratic mayor who appointed his police chief, it is a democratic governor that runs the state of Minnesota? It is a Democrats that are in there house and Senate how exactly is it Trump’s fault.. He finished off his eulogy making by saying in George’s name? A so called Reverend shouting blasphemy In a place of warship. He called all whites racist with a broad brush and called us roaches. They have taken tradgedy and spun it into an agenda. George Floyd isn’t Jesus Christ and he is far from the kind of send off he is getting he held a gun to a pregnant womans stomach and was in jail several times far from a idol. What about David Dorn retired cop 77 does his life matter.

  13. The real injustice….the sign language person. smh.

  14. Colorado has an accountability act legislature in the capitol! We need help, its getting huge blowback from the police unions! Get the word out! Colorado can be a pioneer in reform for the country!

  15. You meant to say was it’s time to burn down more buildings.

    Ok so now that all 4 cops have been arrested and charged and we need to stay informed about that case but it’s up to Ellison now. Shouldn’t we update our signs? We should protest for Breonna Taylor and after her murderers are held accountable protest for Trevon Martin. This has momentum and everyone is focused on this. Even white people like me are focused on this. You have our attention and allegiance so let’s keep going till we get to Tulsa.

    Then let’s throw our weight behind fighting for allies of the black community like the native Americans. They have been there for you and they could use some help because they were the first victims of the colonies.

    You see as an allied white person who has been sympathetic but quiet till now finally doing something feels like atonement. Atonement feels good and it’s exciting that something was accomplished or at least feels like progress.

    This protest has momentum and the people who have power are on the ropes and they’re more sympathetic to listening. Even the military is speaking up because their bosses have not been listening.

    You started with a movement and you raised an army and this time you are not alone. You don’t have just a few of us, but most of us. Even a lot of your previous enemies have had to admit that you’re on the side of what’s right.

    It’s time to focus on another victim and since there is no statute of limitations we can just keep going. Justice is obtainable now. It took a pandemic to get us to be still enough to listen but we heard you and we’re with you. Keep going.

      Along time or a long time? The irony.

      Al tax issue is well documented public information…When will orange dough boy taxes made public..
      Oh yeah the black female NY AG will soon have those documents from Deutsche Bank…can’t wait to see them

    • Lol, but when a white guy you like doesn’t pay taxes, screws taxpayers out of WAY more money, and brags about it saying he’s “smart” not to pay them, you cheer for him as one of your heroes.

  18. Let’s put George Floyd’s picture on the FOOD STAMP!
