      WE DONT CARE WHAT AN NFL PLAYER SAYS –

    • Black Lives Matter is a Marxist institution. WE MUST DEFUND black lives matter and Metoo. I think its time for the great American patriots to rise and protect our country. the left is shredding our country and nobody is doing anything to defend it. Next think they will be tearing uo our flag and replacing it with a black fist.

    Sincere question…. should rappers be hyping “thug” life if they dont want to be associated with the connotation that it brings? I honestly never associated race with thug.

      Disappear? No, they’re set aside for conversation knowing problems (annoyances) still exist.

      @Tiger4james 2020 Sorry, you are correct, I should not say all black people dislike and resent white people but you know as well as I do that the majority do. Until they move past their hate and resentment for whites there will never be any healing, we will remain divided.

      @The Choice Voice Your anecdotal evidence does not make my statement untruthful.

      Which episode or movie is that from?

  5. Mathew is the man, I love when people use there voice and platform to shine a light on racism in American. I’d love if more white celebrities took the time to help others!!

    It’s true, I’m an old white guy who lives in Oakland CA, downtown. I look people in the eye, I resist bias I learned growing up . It took some of my neighbors effort to accept me. I love my diverse neighborhood

    • Defunding cops is misunderstood. It simply means using some of the money to fight crime in more effective ways. I am a retired criminal lawyer. When things got slow us guys used to sit around at coffee time and say, “damn they need to hire more cops”

      Living in Oakland you have no other choice but accept how blacks are.
      It’s called survival.

      @tgoodson2 BS. It simply means defunding cops which means less cops, less training and more crime. California already has one foot in the sh!t hole by not prosecuting petty crimes and downgrading serious crimes with Prop 47. We did this kiss assing criminals in the 1970s. Everyone went out and bought guns so after 20 years of nonsense Democrats passed the Roberti-Roos Assault Weapons Control Act of 1989 and then Violent Crime Act of 1994 . Democrats have been in apology mode and soft on crime ever since. Democrats remove laws, degrade laws, ignore laws and pretend their is less crime. It’s a lie. There’s just less people upholding the law.

    • @Robert Clawson Gee I grew up in a metis community in the north. I never saw a policeman till I left the community when I was 15. We did just fine without them.
      Notice the word “community” and not to be mistaken for gated community.

    • tgoodson2 LOLOL

    History has shown that it’s easier to control and remain in control of a divided society.

  15. I figured the libs here might need to know since cnn does not cover much

    Seattle ‘autonomous zone’ has armed guards, local businesses being threatened with extortion, police say

  16. The real “uncomfortable” conversation is black on black crime – that one gets pushed to the side

    • White corporate crime isn’t even a conversation. Look at the POS criminal Drumpf pretending to be president.
      Mic drop.

      Even more uncomfortable is Bk on Wt crime. Last year, for example, Bk people killed 514 Wt people, but Wt people only killed 234 Bk people. Nobody will talk about that.. in fact it’s a miracle if my comment wasn’t blocked by YouTube.

    • Robert Johnson | June 11, 2020 at 8:39 PM | Reply

      Also, nobody will talk about the high rate that Bs kill cops. For example, of the 54 cops murdered in the line of duty in 2018, twenty five (46%) were murdered by Bs, but only nineteen (35%) were murdered by Ws. This despite the fact that Bs are only 1/5 the population of Ws.

    • @Robert Johnson HAHA – Nice fake stats – GTFO. You sound like a frickin’ nut-job, and are obviously ignorant of many facts.

    • Yea, I’m sure you know all about it. You are describing apples and oranges. The crime you describe does not involve figures of authority who are provided immunity from any type of civil action against their abuses. I bet you’re pretty pissed about the NASCAR decision, too. Why don’t you enlighten us with some more awesome commentary about societal issues of which you lack any understanding… please?

  17. Love how no one cares.

  18. Are we living in the twilight zone ?

  19. JUst called yourself an American.
