    *groan where are all the news reports on Charles Evers? Medgar Evers brother. That’s right, because he supports Trump. Smh

    • Oh my here we go! Don’t you realize your president is an evil person? Do you even care about all the Hitler type things he does? How about the fact he showed no respect to John mccain or anyone else who deserves It? Do you care that he is single handedly trying to make covid spike because he owns stock in pfe, moderna, and astrazeneca because he is trying to profit off of your pain? Can’t you see or are you too well off to care? It’s only a matter of time before the disrespect and pain he causes effects you. But I hope it doesn’t get that far please open your eyes and see that it’s not about Republican or democrat, its about good and evil and all politicians start out with good intentions but end up doing unthinkable things to people like you and me but you are probably to worried about defending this evil so you can’t see the Nazi like things this president is doing even if you don’t like John Lewis if you were president wouldn’t you still show respect?

  10. All the honors the Dems are bestowing seem very hypocritical. The Dems have spent some 60+ years erasing their racist past and foundation. Most of us under 55 have no clue who this man is/was, the whole Dem Jim Crow era, Dem Anti-Civil rights era, Dem Slavery era has virtually been erased from history and barely covers a very short chapter in most history books taught in schools. Now they are cleaning up the remnants of their statues, portraits and buildings & other structures named after their party founders and supporters. The day will come when they’ll try and blame the inequities of society on slavery and we’ll all be staring with blank looks asking what slavery? There was no slavery in our history books. Martin Luther who? John Lewis? Was he a related to the comedian Jerry Lewis? I’m not downplaying any contributions this man may have made in history. I’m saying the Democrats have erased that history and while we pretend to know who this man was and what he did, the day before he died, most of us had never heard of him or anything he did. Unless you happen to have been particularly well educated on black history or taken some specialty black history course at some point. The moral of this comment: Don’t erase history or the facts of who perpetuated the historical crimes. We need to know which group of people committed the historical crimes and which group of people stopped them. If we allow the perpetrators to erase and rewrite history, our history disappears. For this man’s name to live on in history, we need to have a complete and accurate history to put his contributions into historical perspective.

  11. You fought the good fight, brother! Rest on! We are eternally grateful to you.💝🙏🏽

    I am here to testify for what DR. Mustapha did for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 3 years and had constant pain and inching, especially in my private part. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be cured someday .This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of Jenn Loften on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. Mustapha on how he cured her from 7 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of this man, advise anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him I have faith he can cure me too,, DR. Mustapha prepared and sent me Healing Oil, Soap, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after four weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more inching , pain on me anymore as DR. Mustapha assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test behold the result came out negative. So friends my advise is if you have such disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like *HPV, *HBV, *HIV, *ALS, *HBP, *EBV, *CANCER, *DIABETES,DERMATITIS etc. you can contact DR. Mustapha for help via email} or WhatsApp him on +2349063647012

  16. Unbelievable, John Lewis being afforded typical Black Privilege, as being only the second congressman to lie in state in the Capitol rotunda will full military honors. (The other one was also a black congressman, Elijah Cummings.) I remember the young John Lewis, as the leader of SNCC; who vehemently denouncing the Vietnam war at military recruiting centers; in the late ’60s and ’70s. But, that was then, today in the Capitol, he’s the recipient of full military honors. Not so long ago, during congressional hearings; I recall his inarticulate, mush mouth, commentaries that reeked of left wing contentiousness. Still, He was considered the “Best of his Breed”. RIP LEWIS, you raised enough conflict while you were here.

    • I don’t think most people know who he is or care but the fake news will push him into the spotlight for now

  17. When are the posturing politicians gonna let this man go to his rest … very sad
