    We need big systemic change.

  3. Change is long over due. The abuse of power by government officials is an injustice. They try to suppress us. They deem us as hateful and destructive when we’re standing up for our right to be treated equally.

  4. Defund the White House 😷

      @cindy clarke and Donnie Jr calls hunting a sport. How can it be a sport when the other side doesn’t know it’s playing! Get Donnie Jr to leave his gun behind and then go hunting Than you’ll see who is really “the great hunter”

      @Terminator X …extremely well said!

    • lima leaf frog | June 13, 2020 at 4:25 AM | Reply

      @Jock Young …are we blaming people or a system??

    • Racism exists until people stop disagreeing with you.

    • That is not fair; Kudlow is more an apologist for white supremacists than one himself… His only concerns are financial so he has no moral sense and no ethical rudder; he will bend whichever way the profits lay…

    • @Ant B “That white person that you see calling himself a liberal is the most dangerous thing in the entire Western Hemisphere. He’s the most deceitful, he’s like a fox and a fox is always more dangerous in the forest than the wolf. You can see the wolf coming, you know what he’s up to, but the fox will fool you.” – Malcolm X

    What is a realistic demand? 2 years ago, more than 70% of the people thought that a guy couldnt KNEEL. And now everything has changed, hasnt it? I love how privileged people always think that their way of seeing things will be everyone’s way forever. History teaches lesson upon lesson, but they dont listen

    When “defund the police” becomes popular nationwide Trump will claim that he was pushing for reform all along!

    • lima leaf frog | June 13, 2020 at 4:22 AM | Reply

      @b bb one of the most annoying things about the American public is the imprecise way they use language. I think re-allocation would have been a better choice than defund which is incorrect. Language matters.

    • He will try to get the credit. President of law and order 😳🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤥🤥 liar.

    • Sheila Davidson | June 13, 2020 at 10:16 AM | Reply

      Thats what he will say He did it Like they passed criminal justice reform that they stopped Obama from doing in the last administration People went fir that

    • Yeah no.

      @lima leaf frog Then the protesters were taking a lunch break while the looters and rioters took over and controlled things in many cities. Perhaps we should re educate protectors the way some feel we need to do with the police.

  8. How about legalizing marijuana by ending the war on drugs? The brute force of the police brutality. This should be a health crisis issue not a criminal matter. We have too many people locked up in prison over a health crisis.

      Fire the DEA agents, and hire educated counselors, build treatment facilities and get people into the mind frame be involved. Concidering all the money the DEA gets, it’s a savings plan in the long run.

    • Markus Stewart | June 12, 2020 at 6:39 PM | Reply

      With a prison system like your’s, Prison for Profit legalizing pot will never happen in some states. Where would the new customers come from? When you throw people in prisons for having 3 or 4 joints is really stupid. Here in Canada pot is legal, I have a pot store 3 blocks from me. And like booze you use it in your homes.

  9. *Defending Traitor Trump (R – Bunker Boy) 24/7 must be EXHAUSTING for you MAGAtrash.*

    “I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing….It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government….God forbid that we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion….The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.” Thomas Jefferson

    • AMEN… WE HAVE A JUSTICE SYSTEM THAT IS CORRUPTED!!! RICH AND POWERFUL MEN,, ARE RELEASED FROM PRISON,, AND ALLOWED TO CHANGE GUILTY PLEAS…. THAT’S CORRUPTION,, AT THE TOP,, AG BILL BARR IS CORRUPT!!!! LET’S PROSECUTE THE ATTORNEY GENERAL!!!!

    • Well his perspective was just a little skewed being born in the 18th century and a slave owner and breeder of slaves of his own paternity.

    The trump campaign should not be allowed to do this on this date. He’s so transparent in his hateful glee to interject and create chaos.

    • Eyehayt Apricots | June 12, 2020 at 7:12 PM | Reply

      Let Trump try to spread his poison. The American people are becoming immune to the Trump venom.
      Let BLM and the protesters drown the Trumpanzees out in real time face to face.
      Trumpanzees want to play games, game on.

    • Trump is despicable… He is a blatant racist… AMERICA CANNOT EVOLVE BEYOND RACISM,,, WITH TRUMP IN THE WHITE HOUSE….

    • John Traylor correct! I agree

    • Trump is only showing America who he is and what he’s about yet again. VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!!!!💙

    We need peace ☮️ officers not police officers . Defund .

    • @Jock Young Ignoring hopelessly corrupt police departments is doing more harm than good. Police departments have been doing this for decades, promising more training and reforms and it never comes to anything. The time for promises is over, if you cannot clean your own house on your own then the people will do it for you.

    • @I BZ if cops were abolished i would have died 20 years ago

    This won’t help until you speak with the children of the slaves and get their opinions and ideas

  16. The message can’t be hi-jacked unless media like this plays along.

  17. The Republican platform is: Oppress the poor and middle class and take their money and possessions.

      bellamoon , let’s not forget to let the police and the sheriffs department to seize everything after they make one arrest! Just to make more money! Even if they were Proven not guilty they still lost everything!

    • AND BILL BARR IS CORRUPT!! HE LETS PAUL MANAFORT OUT OF JAIL,,, AND GENERAL FLYNN GETS OFF,, WHEN HE PLEAD GUILTY!!.. THE REST OF US ARE TREATED HARSHLY,, PROSECUTED TO THE FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW!!

    What fool would admit they support trump now? HELLO? ANYONE?

    • Kathy Franklund | June 12, 2020 at 9:57 PM | Reply

      timber_beast , well at least 37% of America has decided that they will support trump out right! Can you guess who that 37% are? They are the white rich!They are the other politicians that love the fact that they can either control Trump and get their bills passed or the judges past or their laws passed or the referendum passed! In the other percentage are the people that love the fact that Trump is the one who agrees with the fact that anyone of color needs to be subservient to any one of white color exclamation

  20. Bunker baby wants war.
    He thinks he can maintain the presidency with emergency powers. War/pandemic. Suspend election. Don’t fall for the bait.
