    “Hold on, tweeting. Ok, what now?”
    ” I was saying…. **reads his latest tweet** … Forget it.”
    “Good! **Goes back to twitter and his Big Mac** “

    best quote of the year so far. “peace is not just the absence of violence. it’s also the presence of justice “

  3. To think that in this day and age we are still having this conversation, shame on you the so called United States of America.

    • @Disenfranchised American well, YOU might be. Speak for yourself pal or chick pick one. Assuming you are an american. I have a hard time talking to a very feminine purple dot with a D in it. Its also hard to give any credit to anyone who is afraid to show their face. or to lazy

    • People like you prove why Americas fate is inevitable.

    • @R Cote and because you show your face there should be some sort of realism to your words? Lmao.

    • @R Cote Some one else that’s more interested in knowing who and what you are, rather than conversing and understanding your words.. i could truly spit..

    We all watched a man murdered in real time..OMG!

  8. The store owner said George Floyd may not have EVEN Known that the $20 bill was not real. He was still
    outside of the store. If he knew it was not real would he have just been hanging around the store?
    Shouldn’t they check the bill before you make the purchase?

    • zoe Grace – Most of the time, people who pass fake bills aren’t the ones who made them. Usually they don’t know that it’s counterfeit.

      Most of the time I go to the store with a $ 20 bill they check it before I make my purchase

    I am the wife of a black man and the mother of a biracial 25yr old son and I’m scared for them both every single day.. That fear is always there with me even though neither have ever been arrested a day in their lives.. These types of police see their skin and that’s all it takes..

    I’m from Canada, what is wrong with us, all of us!

    • Hello from Canada….Northern Comfort to Us All

      I am Canadian as well and I keep saying to my daughter all the time lately. What is wrong with people? Racism is alive and well in Canada too. We just don’t talk about it as much and probably our police force system is a bit less corrupt? They are still corrupt, you just don’t see it on the same scale as the USA. The one time I was chosen for Jury duty was for a cop charged with several things. This isn’t just about black or brown people, its about racism against all people. Gays, Lesbians etc etc. Why can’t people just live and let live? No one is forcing people to like anyone for any reason, religion, colour, beliefs. Just let people live as they choose, so they can be happy.

  14. “Peace is not the absence of violence it’s the presence of justice” Thank You!!

      “Peace is not merely the absence of violence, it’s the presence of justice.” by Cory Booker.

  15. Justice is a nice idea, but in the USA (by all observations) I honestly don’t think it’s going to get you that far. Just sayin’.

    End Police Brutality

  17. I live in Minnesota and I am indigenous. Racism here generally appears in a passive-aggressive manner. I understand what it’s like to be profiled, followed in the local stores by security not to mention the health and income and sexual violence victimization disparities. There’s anger and frustration; and also many people trying to level the playing fields. There’s intergenerational trauma and oppression. I wholeheartedly disagree with the violence and destruction, I’m saddened by what is being done to our beautiful state but even more so the pain and frustration that lives within us. We look at our children and grandchildren hoping it will be better for them.
    I believe there needs to be laws specific to law enforcement in that punishment should be significantly steeper as the nature of their positions are supposed to be trust and protection; yet it is fear based. Just because the wheels of justice are not going as fast as we want it to, it’s not going to be resolved by perpetuating violence and destruction. It’s time to end the violence and honor Mr. Floyd and all those who have come before him.
