  1. All of us need to help no matter what race. We all have our stories I feel our younger generation will not feel racial issues due to they are mixed

      What makes you believe the younger generations even have a future at all? Looks to me that their country is destroying itself.

  2. George and the cop knew each other for 17 years and hated each other. Race had nothing to do with it.

    • SPZ Aruba can we at least agree that tyrannical, unethical, murderous behavior by cops on the general public is unacceptable and should be prosecuted?

      @D A Certainly …if we also agree that your description accounts for about .0001% of the police officers (that’s the HIGH number)

      George didn’t even show up in Minneapolis until 2014, and Chauvin isn’t from Houston or North Carolina. They didn’t know each other for “17 years”.

  3. DIS bald black bean needs to learn English syntax

  4. Red Wave Coming

  5. bye Amy Klobuchar #Minneapolis #Minnesota #GeorgeFloyd #GlobalUnityMovement #USA

    Gotta love the left….one second a taser is a DEADLY WEAPON…next second a taser is NOT a deadly weapon. MSNBC is a corrupt joke

    lemme guess…she is running as a member of the party that created the KKK and had the last remaining klansman in the Senate.

    You’ve turned justice into bitterness. So all your righteous acts taste like bitter fruit.

  9. George floyd will also inspire pink floyd to change there name to george floyd in solidarity

  10. That would trigger anybody to hear someone calling for their deceased mother can you imagine that but she came and relief him from the pain and suffering that mr. George Floyd was going through I look at that man die side them tires on that police truck can you imagine that how sad that was can you imagine what it took a lot of people just to see that all national TV could you imagine all the Afro-American women if that was they child could you imagine all the white American women’s if that was they child could you imagine all women a race if that was their child think about it before you judge jmw

      Why is Floyd a symbol for people? A drugs addict with 90% proximal narrowing of
      the right coronary artery, 75%
      proximal narrowing of the 1st diagonal branch of the left
      anterior descending coronary artery, etc etc. High on drugs: Fentanyl 11 ng/mL, Norfentanyl 5.6 ng/mL, 4-ANPP 0.65 ng/mL, Methamphetamine 19 ng/mL, 11-Hydroxy Delta-9 THC 1.2 ng/mL;
      Delta-9 Carboxy THC 42 ng/mL; Delta-9 THC 2.9 ng/mL .
      Floyd told police he could not breathe while STANDING on other side of police car.

    The more small candidates with same political views the more they ll dilute their votes and the establishment candidate will win

  12. If it is important now we must continue momentum. All who protest and are motivated consider running for precinct representative, school board, metro board, President. If change is to happen.; we all are required to vote.

    The democrats own the education system, the media, Hollywood, Big Tech and administrative government. If there is systematic racism or oppression, it’s at the feet of democrats. Lifelong democrat politicians who never did anything to improve the lives of their constituents, only to pander with the race card every time election season rolls around should be a wake up call for all to see the true hypocrisy that exists within the democrat party.

  15. George Floyd was a two bit crackhead career felon that once pointed a shotgun at a pregnant woman’s stomach during an armed robbery… He will not be missed

      Indeed. George Floyd would never know that after his death, he became a national hero for his crimes over the last two decades.

  16. she’s likely a corporate democrat puppet

  17. All the cities being burned down had women police chiefs 3 were of color

  18. It is time for everyone, everywhere to take one more step forward in the cause of equal justice for all.

    Did she nerver hear of MLK? Emmett Till? Ect? Etc?
    Does Laverne McCartney Knighton still not know, Floyd told police he could not breathe while STANDING on other side of police car?
