CAIR unveils Black Lives Matter banner in honor of George Floyd | USA TODAY 1

 

CAIR to mark the anniversary of George Floyd's death by unveiling Black Lives Matter banner on Capitol Hill Headquarters.

RELATED: NYPD officer suspended without pay after 'apparent chokehold'

It's been a month since George Floyd died – since former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck as he gasped for air and pleaded for his life; since peaceful protests during daylight dissolved into violence after dark; since Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey decided to let protesters overtake the police department's Third Precinct.

    To little to late, brothers.

      Why do Arabs call us brothers when you hate us?

    • مهند العبيدي | June 25, 2020 at 4:19 PM | Reply

      @Cornelis van der Heijden really? That is so helpful.
      We can also say, why do you shout that you are oppressed when you are the first to join the army to go and oppress other black and brown people?

      @Cornelis van der Heijden they hate any non Muslim, and talk about oppression? Have you seen how Muslim women are treated? Gtfo with that oppression bullshit, the Muslims oppress more people than any others yet they want to call you out on it.

      Been doing it since the dawn of the time, I seem to remember aisha was a child. Give it a break. Women can finally drive in Saudi Arabia and people are still in indentured servitude across Muslim countries in the middle east.

    NO NO NO. LET’S GET BACK TO THE TRUE AND LIVING GOD.

    • مهند العبيدي | June 25, 2020 at 4:36 PM | Reply

      @Beatrice Cordero I have no doubt that the Jesus I know of who came from palistine and looked like me does love me.
      But the Juses that is in your minds eye who was forced down your ancestors throats with guns and whips certainly doesn’t. I am the wrong colour for that one.

    • Beatrice Cordero | June 25, 2020 at 4:57 PM | Reply

      Yes sir Jesus did look alot like You. His father the creator of heaven is who I was referring to as the Living God.

    • مهند العبيدي | June 25, 2020 at 6:12 PM | Reply

      Beatrice Cordero so explain it to me.
      Jesus is the son of God and Jesus is God and Jesus died on the cross.
      My question is. Did God impregnate Mary to produce Jesus, who is God?
      Is it your view that God impregnated his own mother?
      It’s a bit disrespectful to say the least.
      Another question is if Jesus died on the cross and he is God , are you saying God died? Again a bit disrespectful.
      If we say fine God died on the cross and came back three days later, who was running things while God was dead?
      Those are my problems with your version of Jesus.

      In the Bible the Book of Matthew chapter 3 verses 16 and 17 says:
      And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightaway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him.
      And lo a voice from heaven saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
      Conclusion: Three in one.

      Muhammad was a child molesting murderer.

      Your president and you trumpanzees are bad ppl!

    • Stephen Lott | June 25, 2020 at 5:56 PM | Reply

      @مهند العبيدي Muhammad slept with at least one 9 year old girl. He killed innocent people and preached hatred/violence for women, Jews and infedels. You don’t have to be kkk member or even a racist to notice these facts. Muhammad was a monster, sh*t be upon him. You should be ashamed of yourself for defending such a vile man.

    • Stephen Lott | June 25, 2020 at 5:58 PM | Reply

      @مهند العبيدي also just randomly calling people racist because you disagree with them on something doesn’t work anymore. Nobody’s gonna take you seriously in current year if you’re still these using outdated SJW tactics.

    Banner in honor of George Floyd, a violent drug addicted career criminal that once robbed a pregnant woman at gunpoint? Okay.

    • alicia mingo | June 25, 2020 at 6:04 PM | Reply

      what does his past have anything to do with the fact he was murdered in cold blood by the hands of a police officer

    • William Tice | June 25, 2020 at 6:21 PM | Reply

      @alicia mingo how about maybe if he hadn’t been a career criminal he wouldn’t have had a problem with the cops you ignorant moron!

    • Johnny Mnemonic | June 25, 2020 at 6:23 PM | Reply

      @alicia mingo his past has everything to do with the banner in his honor. And he wasn’t murdered. He died of heart attack because of combined effect of being restrained after resisting arrest, his underlying health conditions (heart disease, hypertension, etc.) and fentanyl and meth in his system.

      @Stoned Homer fake??? Google his police report. It’s as long as a scroll.

    Congratulations, you just fixed racism.

  15. Malcolm X also believed white liberals were con men abusing the black man for personal gain. I agree with him.
