  1. The voices are getting louder and the momentum is getting stronger! Time for real changes 🙌💯

  2. That’s not a bad idea at all! 💥
    If we had done this after the Civil War, who knows where this country would be today. 🤯

  3. Only the man in the mirror can “cure racism”

  4. People can’t change the way they look, so maybe we should change the way we see. 🙂

    IF the cops fear for their lives when the black man used the taser on them, THEN why wouldn’t the black man fear for his life when the cops used the taser on him?

      Why can’t white man apply the law fairly?

    • Dude was punching cops then stole taser and tried to use it

      @Troy Stocker Why can’t white cops follow the law and rules of decency?

      @Howie Will I democrats haven’t made the cities better in 50 years, yet you fools keep voting for them

    • @Troy Stocker yeah, like the white man is soooo law abiding, you freaking mongrel. The difference is simple, white people don’t get pulled over for driving while white or for driving a car the racist cop considers too expensive for a black man to be driving. Think about that for awhile, asshat.

  7. Above all else Stand America. This has got to stop. BLM. You have to stop taking fathers,mothers sisters and brothers from their families

    Ironic that so many of the troopers I served with at Ft. Braxton Bragg would have been enslaved by General Bragg!

  9. Simply start putting them in prison that will stop it

  10. I remember when cops gave chase to people

    • B Britt How were the cops going to chase someone had his Tazer? He is going to get taxed.

    • Michael Sminikov | June 14, 2020 at 2:24 PM | Reply

      They did chase him, until he turned around and fired a stolen police taser at the officer chasing him. Don’t fire weapons at the police.

    • Marilyn Clarke | June 14, 2020 at 2:56 PM | Reply

      B. Britt, I remember the Chase’s as well, if cops had to shoot they only shot the assailant in the leg to stop he or she.

    America back to the Native Americans! Let’s go ALL the way.

    I love this man. (lets stay together) loved him in the 60s and now he is talking out adout injustice to our fellow bros. and sisters.

  13. brilliantly said, ty rep green and mr johnson.

    • So I’m supposed believe a guy at home with a mask on!

    • it remains mildly amusing but even more so pathetic when russian trolls ‘drop by’ to comment on youtube videos about American issues while they pretend to be Americans. granted, they wish that they were. even as bad as things are here right now, thanks directly to trumputin and putin, it is still better than their ‘country’, under putin. add to that the fact that trumputin is only here temporarily but they are stuck with their dictator for life. funny, putin is a dictator but also a worldwide laughingstock, on oh so many levels. that these poor pathetic trolls do this for money, 85 rubles for each direct reply, is even more pathetic. they prostitute themselves for just about the equivalent of $1 American money… wow, really pathetic. but also really quite amusing.

    • @mary jones Poor Mary with a anger management problem! Say hi to China Joe Biden for me!

    we need to EDUCATE, ppl become what they’ve learned, specially inside their family nucleus, I believe racism can be erradicated through education, knowledge and sharing between races….😉

    Department of Reconciliation. Great idea. You’ll never get it under Trump.

    • Get off the Trump thing it’s never going to happen anyway would take 2 party’s to agree and we know that won’t happen!

    @3:45 The reporter said ‘when George Floyd was shot’ – George Floyd was not shot. The police officer [kneeled on] his neck/throat area for over 8 minutes.

  17. To Al Green:

    Whatever you want to do
    Is all right with me
    Cause you make me feel so brand new

    Black Lives Matter, only when they want their vote.

  19. Black racism is dangerous, as the corruption of US politicians.

  20. The Most High told you who your enemy is. It’s time you believe Him.
