  1. Trump, his collaborators and other minions should start up their legal defense or make escape plans. There will be trials. There will be recalls. There will be sentences. There will be Justice.
    There will be dancing in the streets.

    • I promise if Trump is voted out of office (please, please, all ye gods!) and there’s a celebration in my city, I’ll be there out on the street shaking my stuff. I’ll wear a mask and try to maintain distance, but I’ll miss Xmass before I miss that celebration.

    • @Julia Yenia Your gonna be disappointed. What you going to do when Trump wins with a landslide larger than last time? He’s now pulling over 30% amongst black Americans.

      Ian T They aren’t Black….they only have “black faces” AAAAND….race has ALWAYS been just another distraction if we but knew…it’s about Principalities, ANOTHER word that tRUMP can not define…Anywho, May God continue to expose these dark souls running this government….The time been up, and so has the grace period…Let’s Keep praying And being watchful…

    • @Ian T Hey Ian, Eat it RAW

    • @Vivian Barnes Principalities….like Monaco you mean?

  2. I love how these two beautiful women, tooka negative and made a positive.
    Congratulations ladies!

  3. The Romans gave us Bread and Circuses,  The RNC gave us no Bread, and the Circus was mostly just Clowns

    • @K.J. G. I think Trump’s out in the real world go who’s the real bunker boy lol I can’t wait for those debates how about you

    • Yep, very half-assed. If only they’d given all those RNC speakers weapons and armour and set them at each other’s throat! I’d have watched every minute of it.

      And, it’s a terrible thought, I might have ended up baying for blood as badly as any decadent Roman pleb ever.
      Yep, there’s the abyss gazing into me.

    • @esj8341 yep, it was a nice continuous up that started … oh, right in the Obama terms.
      Funny how that never gets mentioned when Trumps tremendous beautiful economy is pointed out.

    • @Julia Yenia Trump cut Obama’s regulations, Trump lowered taxes, and Trump rewrote Obama’s trade agreements that’s why after eight years of stumbling, the American economy shot upward after Trump took office.

  4. That is so true!! Exhausted, emotionally exhausted. Especially with the RNC on tv every night talking about being afraid of black people. Then that white boy with big gun shooting people and walking pass police who just let me pass. Brutal reality to watch. And pure pain

  5. Revenge is what Trumps base fear. They’re convinced if they give 1 inch they will get the same treatment like they dished out. If you know how minorities are treated, you don’t wanna become the _new_ minority. And that’s the fear that Trump uses perfectly.

  6. excellent points made. Let’s work in this together — here-here!!

    Phyllis’ husband comments in the uk, I am a white man, 74 years old in two weeks time & vote for who I think can do the best for my country.
    I don’t understand how any non white person in the USA can even think about voting for Trump. Why is it black people are ok to represent their country in the military or sports but treated as second rate citizens any other time? Can you just think where your country would be placed in the medal tables in sport if it was not for the black participants.
    I am frightened if he is re-elected he will destroy not only the USA but cause so much trouble for the rest of the western world, this is how Hitler became the evil leader he did.
    Please vote him & the GOP out of office, stay safe & well, kind regards, Tony.

    • @Kenneth Jacobs just because a Democrat Senator disagrees with riots in the streets, higher taxes, more regulations, amnesty, and bending over for China and Iran, doesn’t mean they are being paid off.

      @Kenneth Jacobs
      Peace to you my Brother, I’ve read your comments and agree to what you’ve said here. I’m addressing you because we have some of the same opinions. I’m sure we differ on many things, *I do not speak for all of our people, not even a majority of our people.* Please allow me to inform you, that many of us will not be voting. We’ve marched, bled, fought in wars, died at the hands of white inferiority throughout the world, and we’re tired as Cari said at the 8:49 mark of this video. But when she said, *”we did not want revenge”* that was a flat out lie, as I said, I do not speak for everyone, so neither can she. I read the scriptures daily, and I know who I am, and who we are scriptually *(Genesis **15:13**).* So vengeance belongs to the FATHER *(Revelation 18:5-7)* and He’ll repay, as a matter of fact, it is happening now *(Genesis **15:14**)* throughout the world. This is the chaos you see happening, as we speak. So fam, get yourself right, because there is no coming back from this system of oppression and racism for this world, they’ve had their run, now it’s our turn. Peace!

      *[7] Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.*

    • bam! right on the money. it is mind boggling it is even a conversation about voting for the very stable genius and his endless retinue of enablers. one would expect it would be only one candidate to consider, for better or worse but alas!.

    • To whoever at MSNBC keeps deleting my comments as I’m spitting facts about the unemployment rate and violent crime, I hope you’re proud of your job. Sitting at your desk and only looking at youtube comments, which ones to delete to fit your narrative.

  8. I have and are ready to Vote. Dump the rump.

  9. Make America “regular” again! Join us on November 3rd and help our beautiful America takes her biggest and nastiest dump in 243 years!

    • @Matthew Huszarik it’s true, it’s like we gotta get rid of the gut rot that’s inside us in the form of trump and his cult.

    • Eternal Reign | August 28, 2020 at 8:40 PM | Reply

      WTF are you talking about lol? It’s your side burning all the cities down and destroying all the statues. Make it beautiful again? What a moron. It’ll be more of that for 4 years, except in all cities, not just democrat controlled cities. Jesus christ, you idiots really aren’t good at putting clues together are you? Just good at drinking koolaid and being gullible huh?

    • Thomas Graham | August 29, 2020 at 2:48 PM | Reply

      @Eternal Reign OK, I guess that must mean that “your side” are the ones murdering people without cause. Right. I’m the moron. I’d call you an a**hole but you’d still need 5 promotions to qualify.

    • @Eternal Reign Trump is creating the racial divide, by filling people like you with hate, then telling us only he can fix it. The economy was good, the country was a lot more peaceful when Obama was in office.

    • Unapologetic Speaking | September 3, 2020 at 2:23 PM | Reply

      @Eternal Reign Hahaha, what nonsense you make. Understand, If you remove the thing that causes the protests, You don’t have to worry about protests, riots and public unrest. Your problem is you only condemn the reaction to the injustices of cops and white supremacists murdering blacks, and having a racist president who justifies their murderous hate crims. Remove trump the enabler , then the white supremacists will be a dying body without it’s head.

  10. If you put Trump’s brain in a mosquito, it would fly backwards.

    These rich folks living in the White House criticizing other’s who are entitled ,,, ironic,

  12. Now I understand the need to protest against injustice.

  13. I am a white woman, 74 years old the first of the month. I am truly sorry for the way african Americans have been and continue to be treated as less than some how!!! I have lived in the south and have seen and heard racist talk. Most recently this week when an acquaintance from Memphis called me. I have told her repeatedly that I will not listen to that kind of talk and will not talk to her any more. I believe that black lives matter and my heart bleeds for for those who are continually being murdered, hurt and disrespected!!! I am voting against this evil president and for Biden and Harris so that we can start to correct injustices and heal this country. God bless all of you and stay safe from racists and covid-19. Mary

    The players work hard. they aren’t given that money .This son of a crook should shut up .

      David Eby You sound so ignorant. A lot of them have more intelligence than you and your possible children combined. David shame on you. Funny though ….. you couldn’t think of anything more brilliant than that. They use to hearing that stupidity.

    • Melissa Sullivan | August 29, 2020 at 12:26 PM | Reply

      ^^ in fact, they’ve found that the same ‘book smart’ intelligence function in the brain is hightened in star atheletes. Most folks think if they work hard enough they too can be an athlete super star, but it doesn’t work that way. These folks LITERALLY are geniuses of their body, even the speed of their reactions is faster. It’s really quite incredible. So for those that think they just play? Sure. You keep telling yourself that.

      Melissa Sullivan 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 Thank you 🙏🏾

    • Interesting thing: I’ve heard that “the players should just be grateful and shut up” several times.

      What I never heard, not once, is how the other (mostly caucasian?) people getting rich – trainers, managers, … – should be grateful for the money the make out of an machinery that’s kept running by the players .

    • Jennifer Neblett Have you ever seen a more arrogant, self entitled, narcissistic, ignorant loser? Kushner is beyond reprehensible.

  15. Biden should reach out to the players and share plans with them and then refine those plans.

  16. The word ‘Change’ was used often here. Conservatives Hate Change, it feeds their ever present Fears.

    • @RavenPoe I believe people misinterpret the concept of survival of the fittest…. it’s not all about tooth and claw and who’s bigger and stronger…. what is maximized in Nature is cooperation, symbiotic relationships, mutualism….

      I can’t think of a single living organism on Earth that doesn’t have some degree of mutualistic symbiosis…. such as the bacteria in the human gut that help produce vitamins…. there’s almost not a plant or shrub on planet Earth that doesn’t have symbiotic fungus and bacteria around its roots in the soil that mediate the exchange of mineral ions through at roots…. look at a climax rainforest the relationship between all the animals birds trees insects…..or a coral reef that has armies of fish that specialize in cleaning parasites up other species and how all various species predator and prey types will gather and congregate in that area and arrest their natural behavior of predation in order to get that cooperation from for example of simple cleaning wrasse….

      esj8341 13th amendment -> police brutality -> Tulsa & Rosewood Massacre -> loss of wealth -> redlining -> sundown towns -> vigilante & police murderers -> mass incarceration. Exhibit A, B, C, all the way to Z.

      Black and Brown Americans are FREELY walking away from the Democratic plantation!
      WE SAY “NO” to MASTA JOE!

      Joe Biden is INCOMPETENT and we ALL know this.


    • @Ambria Ashley Seriously? Tulsa was in the 1920s. The 13 Amendment was repealed a 150 years ago. America fought a civil war over it. That is your evidence of systemic racism existing in 2020?

    A lot of white people have had their eyes opened in the last couple years. The two choices are 1. Change the Constitution 2. Or live up to it.

    • I knew it was bad. Then came the cell phone camera. It was much worse than I thought.

    • Maybe God will get into there heart

    • A lot of white people who have had their eyes opened in the last couple years but it’s not for the way you think they have. You people are so arrogant and so sure yourself and you couldn’t be more wrong. In November you can blame it on yourselves you were so sure yourselves weren’t you I think Hillary was too now look what she’s doing for a living

    • @K Slim and and the Democrats are just the party to clamp down on racism LOL LOL. Yeah you betcha wake me up. I was just joking trying to be sarcastic. But I’m sure somehow you believe that

    • @Joey Harper Why are you arguing with all black people?

  19. it’s Jacobs children I feel sorry for
    having to witness their father being shot seven times…
    that is an act of pure cruelty

    • @Helene Flamand I do believe I read a statistic the other day where people that are paralyzed resist arrest a lot less.

    • @Malca’s Grace so are peaceful protesters….. after 8 at night

    • @Billy Pardew According to all racist white supremist thugs like you, a warrant for the arrest of a black man, deserves a death sentence. In this country you’re still innocent till proven guilty, except if you’re black. This man might be innocent of the charges against him. Why do you hate blacks so much?

    • Did you know he admitted having a knife in his hand….check out the interview with Jacobs mother

    • @Ian T uh oh! Truth and facts
