  1. They mocked, demonized & dismissed Kaepernick for protesting peacefully and now they wondered why it has come to this. – Now VOTE !!!

      @Heathen S Again, you have it WRONG. Kaepernick was taking a knee for ALL people of color killed just for breathing while black. It happens all the time and I as a white woman will never understand what it feels like to be afraid to just get lost while driving in an all white affluent neighborhood, be pulled over and killed because some cop thought I was in the area for a burglary just because of the color of my skin. He was kneeling for EVERYONE.. not just a bunch of thugs and thieves.. or is that what you are calling African-Americans?

    • @connie baldwin it does not happen all the time. You are a hysterical loser that lives an emotional reactionary life fueled by cable news fear peddlers. Get help.

    • Apparently a knee on the grass is more unacceptable than a knee on a neck.

    • @Christine B. you are a moron. They built nothing.

    I approve peaceful protests and the rebellions.

      How about people burning down their own neighborhood, Burning Down the place where they work, burning down minority-owned businesses, teaching their children that lawlessness is okay?

      @Robert The Bruce theyll be heard and in a long run their children will understand why they did what they did

    • Sandra Whitlock | May 30, 2020 at 7:37 PM | Reply

      I believe that the majority of the people protesting are non violent and peaceful. I also believe that certain groups already prone to enacting violence and division are giving rise to such brutality as they are already comfortable with.

  6. *Is part of these riots a setup by anti-Trump white supremacists?* *together with foreign and domestic terrorists?*
    Look at the evidence, and check it out for yourself! Not sure why more evidence of this is not on MSNBC, but at least they mentioned it this time!!!

    • @Bell DA Thank you, you stay safe too. I want everyone to live happier lives, to be free, to be safe.

    • @Valerie Galvan When will the hate stop? Can’t you see that President Trump is not that way? I don’t think he was ever that way. The hate and the not caring for anyone but themselves belong on your side, on the left. The Republicans were never racists and those who are, why would they be Democrats?

    • Valerie Galvan | May 30, 2020 at 8:27 PM | Reply

      @Spok the hate will stop when trump is out of office, plus he threatened violence NOT love. “The looting starts, the shooting starts.” Quote from a racist chief of police in Florida in the 60’s. If that’s not threatening violence, I don’t know what is.

    • @Valerie Galvan He was right, when the looting started, so did the shooting.

    i think that is over until America realizes that all men and women are created equal. Racism will only create more mahem and Black and Brown people are done with the BS. VOTE

      Joshua d’Estoville WTF?! “Everybody” is NOT a target and there is someone currently occupying the White House who already does

    • @Veronica Valencia what is wrong with you all…..you Trump haters are blind.

      Nothing at all to do with Trump. Thats your own very obvious mental and emotional deficiencies showing.

      Indulge us by sharing two of those statements.
      Otherwise, I’ll your claim the same way I treat the actions of the goons responsible for Floyd’s death.

      M V Obama divided. Fact, minorities did better under Trump. Maybe you’re the racist

    Love, Peace & Nonviolence! Maybe those 4 racists cops should have exhibited some love, peace & nonviolence!

  11. I wonder, when they say trouble makers if they are talking about the cops?

  12. beware GOP rightwing white supremacist infiltrators.

      @Robert The Bruce and for what? for wanting to protect her constituents? Yeah.. that makes a lot of sense.

      The mayor of St. Paul said today that ALL the protesters arrested by his police were from out of state. A few I can understand, but ALL OF THEM? Something stinks

    • Thors Pinky Why don’t you go back to Faux News Moron…

    • @Susan Farley Why.? Sending in agitators is one of the oldest tricks in the book, before J Caesar, Genghis Khan, Attila the Hun,. GOP tricksters like Roger Stone. ….. Of course they are from elsewhere, you don’t burn down your own house. Nothing stinks about that

    “vote like we never voted before.” I did so yesterday sir – in my state primary. I filed for an absentee ballot which was supposed to arrive by mail – and didn’t. I went to the county voting place, did the paperwork for a provisional ballot, and voted. I’ll do it again in November. If I have a pulse, I’ll find a way to vote.
