      Yes because But America has always been like this for Native African Americans, #ADOS. Remember the 246 years of chattel enslavement and the 99 years of convict leasing and Jim Crow and redlining. Then the export of manufacturing jobs from all the cities around the u.s.. Then the dumping of cocaine in our communities by Ronald Reagan and Oliver North. Then the crime bill that arrested anyone with cocaine or crack that was AfAm, that brought on mass incarceration and the separation of families. And today half of all African Americans live in poverty. So America has never stood up for the people on whose backs the country was built.

    • @Kofi Prempeh #ADOS 2020
      Trump and the GOP’s racism has continued to perpetuate all that you said.
      Trump told a gathering of law enforcement officers the following, which you can Google:
      “President Trump Tells Police Officers Not To Be ‘Too Nice’ With Suspects”

      Also:
      “Mississippi mayor under fire over comments on George Floyd’s death.
      Mayor Hal Marx of Petal, Mississippi, said he “didn’t see anything unreasonable” in the video of George Floyd’s arrest. “If you can talk, you can breathe.”

      Let’s play Bill Mahar for a second: New Rule, if a murder is caught on video, dead to rights, showing the act being carried out in plain sight, and it can be easily verified, we forego the waste and time and effort of a trail, and just sentence them. This was a snuff video, pure and simple.

    I’m glad, at least, that everyone can now see what really happens out there. Those police should be arrested and prosecuted. But even if they aren’t, we still all KNOW.

    • Elizabeth White | May 29, 2020 at 12:26 PM | Reply

      Laura Lafauve We have all seen what really happens out there for years, ever since cell phone videos of police executions became public. The fact that we all “KNOW” yet do not demand all our elected officials at every level of government to take effective and meaningful action to ensure that all public employees are required to comply with the law and be held accountable for their criminal actions just as any other citizen is means that our knowledge, unless accompanied by actions to stop these obscene abuses of power, merely makes us all accomplices in these and all murders that will continue to occur as a result of our inaction. Every time police officers murder citizens on video seen by the nation and the world, the more confident the criminal element among police officers is that they will not be held accountable for their crimes — even when we all watch them commit them on video.

    • Laura Lafauve | May 29, 2020 at 12:45 PM | Reply

      @Elizabeth White from my point of view we all knew since Rodney King. from my point of view we all should have known that forever. But since some people are slow in that way and because other people will hide stuff and lie and excuse. I don’t know any other way that to drown them in facts. Water board them with facts. bury them with facts. Any body who has ever suffered any type of abuse has run into this ridiculous denial. I can’t see any other way than to shove these things in the people’s faces until they still see it when they close their eyes.

    • @Martin Lewis …more unarmed “ppl of color”?

      By how much, when crime rates for different demographics are factored in?

      White people don’t commit the same amount of crime as “ppl of color”.

      Does “ppl of color” mean all “non-whites”?

      Because that would be another false equivalency…and yet another reason why your narrative makes no sense.

    I thought cops are supposed to apprehend, cuff then take them to the station for interrogation. Not to pin a suspect to the ground for 8 minutes.

      @Computer user,
      (1) Your not having been arrested is not the same as your never having committed a crime.
      (2) Even if we assume Mr Floyd had a counterfeit bill, do we know how he came to have it, AND is it a death penalty offense?
      (3) The things you are willing to make excuses for says more about you than your character and criminality than your arrest record. You are a moral criminal.

    • Computer User | May 29, 2020 at 7:57 PM | Reply

      If I don’t commit a crime, I don’t get arrested, DUH.

    • DeGrate1896 | May 29, 2020 at 9:31 PM | Reply

      @Computer user, if you are white, your statement is probably true. But statistically, your truth should but does not hold for your brothers and sisters of a darker hue. Some professions–even teaching–are so obsessed with “keeping people in their places” that they specifically go looking for people of color to do something they can classify as unlawful so they can deal literal or figurative death. Chauvins is a case in point. Then they rely upon the naive or reckless to protect them from accountability. But many younger white people are waking up. Historically, some of your politicians have even written laws designed to criminalize whatever non-White/poor white people were likely to have to do–like stand on the side of the road to wait for jobs in the 1930s. If I perceived that you were really interested, I would advise you to read “The New Jim Crow…” by Michele Alexander, “Race and the American Legal Process” by Judge A. L. Higginbotham, or anything by Bryan Stevenson, but you seem willfully even blissfully blind to injustice and my mum always said that if you cannot give a person something better, never take away their source of hope. So I will leave you to your be consoled by your whiteness. Meanwhile, many younger and quite a few older whites are waking up. Take care.

    • Computer User | May 29, 2020 at 9:35 PM | Reply

      Yes I am white, and I never in my life committed a crime or passed a home printed $20.00 bill. I have gotten parking and speeding tickets though and paid them. The people of a darker hue need to obey the law and not do something that causes people to call police on them.

      @DeGrate1896 I’ve been woke since 1953, but I’m only one person. I try to teach those who will listen. We must *all* speak out. If we don’t, who will speak when they come for us??

      ​@Vega Nona As a white person myself, I find that implying that George Floyd or any black human being got what they deserved and/or that the cops are justified in killing someone in this manner is not only disrespectful to their families, but also revolting. All lives, regardless of the color of their skin, matter. No one deserves to die in this manner, not even animals.

    • @Rosandra Montequin You’re pulling a strawman on me. I never said he deserved anything less than his day in court. I’m sayingif you lead a life of crime and run into one of the oh so many rogue cops out there dont think I’m gonna be surprised. If I go to stadiums to watch basketball games I’m not surprised to catch covid. See him cry for his mother as he died. Do you have any doubt that as a six foot five thug he left countless people with that feeling along his reckless past? White guilt nil
