  2. “I was stopped by police in my hometown. I was nervous. Kept the hands on the wheel. Told the officer, my license is in my wallet, may I reach for it. Cop said, I know who you are, Dave. You don’t need to act like that. Yeah, but I shouldn’t have to be who I am to feel like I don’t need to be nervous.” – Dave Chappelle.

    1. How about a quote from a black man who actually made a difference?
      “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?” -MLK
      Change begins within our communities. 2,700+ shootings a year and where was blm? No bright lights and cameras = No blm.

    2. @Ro G Yeah, i’m a supporter of someone I’ve never heard of, got it LMAO. Did I say something that angered you? Do the words of Dr. Martin Luther King make you mad? Poor little boy. You are part of the problem whther you want to admit it or not. Have a good day!

    1. poor baby, go cuddle up next to your orange binky in tweety the victims lap, it ain’t about you – you are not important enough to be pointed at or ‘protested at’. you poor forgotten white victim SAD

  3. The protests have shown you that there are more police just like Chauvin who would just as soon use bullets as mace on protesters. There was an FBI guy on a network who said it straight up – that Chauvin is a sociopath. You need to weed them out and stop hiring them. The problem is you will set them loose on society.

    1. The problem is they do not tell you. The problem is they fool most of if not all mental health professionals. The problem is you don’t know until they have shown their true colors…then it is way too late.

    2. Also, for yrs, FBI & DOJ investigated infiltration by white supremacists into police orgs. Wanna guess who put stop to it? Wonder abt repeated instances of police agression/violence during ptotests, even w/ cameras recording? Violence ag press?

  4. How many more have died by police hands since George Floyd. Have lost count, this is getting ridiculous already it has to STOP!!!

    1. @James Madison I’d bet at much the same rate whites killed whites per capita right around the country in every city with a population over 2 million.

    2. @Rod I agree both sides are in pain, my son is a state trooper in South Dakota and I do worry about him. He is a good man and tries to do the right thing but he told me some times you have to be an jerk even though you do not want to

    1. @Megadog In spite of your radical right wing propaganda, he would still need to wear a mask. Now shoo. You bore me.

    2. REV. SHARPTON IS A BLESSING TO THIS AMEIRCA- TO ME HE IS AS IMPORTANT AS MARTIN L. KING JR.
      HE WILL HELP CHANGE THE WORLD FOR THE BETTER THAT IS FOR SURE.
      THE LORD WILL NOT TAKE HIM FROM US YET.

  5. β€œI prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false and to incur my own abhorrence.” β€” Frederick Douglass

  6. I am half Korean and half Hungarian from California. My wife is Irish and Italian from New Jersey. My kids are 4 ethnicities and are four and two years old. When we take our kids out in public in New Jersey people tell us our kids look white, but something looks off or not right. I have heard this countless times hear and never thought I would be concerned about my kids being a quarter Korean. I more than ever want everyone to be looked as people and not by the tan of my skin or the difference in my eyes, let alone my own children. And George Floyd crying for his mama?? That is color blind as this country should have always been. we have to make it better for our children. πŸ‘Š

  7. I remember where I was and who I was with while watching John F. Kennedy’s funeral, I will never forget this day of George Floyd’s funeral!

  8. I am a 60 year old white guy that has watched this go on since the Watts riots in the 60’s. I am so proud to see everyone taking to the streets, all colors all sizes, all faiths. A country searching for it’s moral compass and finding it in the frustrations of older people like myself and in the hope of young people of consciousness. We cannot go back to “normal”, and we cannot go back to sleep. Keep standing for human dignity, everyone’s dignity, all the time. #BLM

    1. true…. much love from my country we r in support for what america is going through at this time

  9. When the people are United and Our Leaders no longer represent our Views; then they no longer serves a purposeπŸ’―βœŠπŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ’ͺ🏾

  10. Don’t be so surprised by “white people protesting.” Many of us were raised to respect all people! Some may have been raised by a racist and realized the ignorance. I think that Mr. Floyd’s death has awakened the sleeping majority and that majority believe that all human beings are created equal.

  11. Trump uses George as a prop for his own “economic signs are good” Biden actually came to the service and talked to the family. The only way to fight racism is to be among the people, Trump wouldn’t even let black people in his buildings.

  12. A lot of people aren’t just fed up with racism and police brutality, but they’re also fed up with Trump.
