    • As we consider defunding the police it is time for another look at recent research on killing of unarmed Black Americans by Police:

      The recent study from researchers at Rutgers University may inform your thinking about this tragic problem .  Researchers say that shoddy police tactics and bad laws contribute more to the disproportionate killing of suspects than bad policemen out for blood.

      In other words, it’s a police problem, not a white police problem, conclude researchers from Rutgers University. This finding disputes the common belief that a few “bad apples” lead to more violence against civilians, especially black men, by police.

      After analyzing all uses of deadly force by police in the United States from 2014 to 2015, the research team found that the killing of unarmed suspects of any race in a police encounter is extremely rare.

      “There might be some bad apples in the police department, but white officers are no more likely to use lethal force against minorities than nonwhite officers,” says Charles Menifield, lead author of the study and dean of Rutgers’ School of Public Affairs and Administration

  2. This is just another distraction to divide the human race. We are ALL brothers and sister.

    • @keef davis I say put your trust in Christ my friend. He is the way, the truth and the life. If we believe and put our trust in Him, we are born again and united with Him and have eternal life. Dont put your hopes in this world that is fading away…I say this with love…eternity is not a joke

    • Danny Dunn I will refer you to the parable of the Good Samaritan…who is your neughbor. We have been called to be the light in this world, the salt, our actions are not to “own” anyone but to reflect the Father whom we serve. You tell me that being concerned about eternity means I do not care for the pain my fellow humans are going through? You tell me acknowledging the injustice is dividing people but being oblivious brings them together(as long as they all close their eyes and sing Kumbaya) which gospel is this? The bible says we shall know the tree by the fruit it bares(not the hat it wears, not the bible it carries,not the rudeness/meannes) but the Fruit. Are you gentle, are you truthful, are you a friend to the stranger. This gospel that allows you to carry hate in your heart and stand aloof to the suffering of other people reminds me of the Pharisees that Christ called Snakes and Coffins(pretty outside but dead inside). If you truly are a Christian and not using the gospel as a shield I really hope you go and read the Sermon of the mount and introspect. He says He has come that we might have Life and Life abundantly-not that we might die asap to make it to heaven.

    • @nomsa shezi honestly, most Christians have no clue with what being “Christ-like” means.

    • @nomsa shezi Of course we are to care for our fellow neighbors….I didnt mean that….I just mean with all the violence and anger coming from both sides….we should pray for them and share to others about Christ…i was speaking the other commentator on here about eternal life, because he seems to reject Jesus

    • @The Zombie Whisperer When are you going to end the racist circle your ancestors started? Aren’t you sick of being a racist? Jeez man!!! Get a life …it is short enough as it is

    • @Jets Tom Only people with deep seated racist minds still talk of a few bad apples. They are people with brains not apples. And there is no such thing. The majority of cops are White supremacists!

    • Seattle ‘Autonomous Zone’ Has a Border Wall, and is Conducting ‘Deportations’ ,following in Trump footsteps .

      Seattle, Washington’s Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) — formed by anarchists, Antifa members, and Black Lives Matter activists — has set up a border wall surrounding its perimeters and is conducting ‘deportations’.

      Is war come with Antifastan warlords ???

  4. The power of the people is far greater than the power of the government. This is the way our founders wanted it🙂

      I will not watch nfl or NASCAR anymore.. Anybody who kneels in front of the flag I wish President Trump a happy 74 th Birthday who was born on flag day who has strong beliefs in not kneeling in front of the flag….God bless you sir

    • This is Al Sharpton the race hustler that wants higher taxes but doesn’t pay his own taxes

  6. The president calling people dogs? What a guy ! No😤

  7. The sad thing about Colin Kaepernick is that none of his fellow players no famous celebrities like Sean Combs that he always likes to run his mouth supported him this man been without playing for 4 years still no support from nobody from the sports scene so sad and so weak

    What is an “athlete of color?”

    • @Linda McMillan No offense meant, but black. Light contains the color spectrum and black is the absence of light.

    • Linda McMillan | June 14, 2020 at 3:33 PM | Reply

      Drew N, you’re mistaken!!

    • @Linda McMillan No. light contains the color spectrum. So since everthing turns black when the lights goes out, black is the absence of color. The color of things is determined by the angle light is relected off of a surface ( Refraction ). The greater the angle the lighter the color,. Since the angle in which light is reflected is so low, no light, which contains the color spectrum reaches your eyes, so you see black.

    • What is that red color on you neck?

    • song yardbird | June 14, 2020 at 7:47 PM | Reply

      Linda McMillan Black is the absence of color. Look it up!

  11. Covid 19 is not transmitted between people at BLM protests.

    – MSNBC Scientist

    • @Day Time Day Time…don’t sweat it. Greg Bores everybody.

    • @OneDeep lol i respectfully disagree sir watching Greg get bored by a BBC is very entertaining

    • @Day Time – be careful what you hope for, karma is a beast! If and when it hits you, I hope you call out to God because surely he’s missing in your life. Which is shocking because I thought all trumpsters were pro-life. Ha!

    • It is true that I work along side Black Folks every day, and most of them don’t wear Masks and nor do they make their Children wear Masks standing in line to buy a Burger. My Sub Contractors who are mostly Black never wear a Mask. So now you should ask who is to blame for higher amount of Covid19 Cases is because of Social Habits. Also more Black Folks don’t have adequate Health Insurance

    • so die protesters die..

    Dear Millennials: Google “Tawana Brawley” and you will learn about Al Sharpton.

      Sharpton is the very definition of racist. I cannot believe he has made it this long. He is about at the end of his shelf life.

    • Jules Gilberto | June 14, 2020 at 9:01 PM | Reply

      @LovingmyMcMahon 33 show yourself: all of you who hate AL Sharpton are trump supporters and we don’t need you here. fox news is in dire need of trump followers.

    • Denise Hodges | June 14, 2020 at 9:22 PM | Reply

      Rev Al didn’t show up til the funeral for George Floyd… wasn’t in the top 20 to respond. Does he know why he’s here.. oh crap it’s Biden. This is the best we have?

  13. Let’s end all racist non inclusive sports Now !! Especially basketball and football!!

    • John Smith ???, What NBA, NFL, MLB or NHL game have you seen the confederate flag? Stay in your lane and protest NASCAR for their decision to ban that racist flag with it’s racist fans who are upset over it. Name 1 NFL or NBA team owner that is black, and Shad Khan is the face of a consortium of 15 person board of trustees that runs a business that owns the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    • @dlbark He’s a troll… C’mon man, pay attention.

THIS IS WORLD WIDE ALL RACES STANDING WITH BLACKS. THE TRAIN HAS LEFT THE STATION AND YOU MISSED IT.
