  1. How nice of “The Rev” to park his private jet long enough to get some screen-time, and deify another criminal junkie. I hope Ol’ Al was well paid for his performance.

    1. When will the moment of silence be for the 40K covid vaccine deaths? Anyone pushing the plunger on these vaccines has bloody hands.

    2. @CShield I don’t know about 40k deaths, but if the vaccines are so effective, why is the Goon Squad still wearing masks and keeping everyone on lock-down?

    3. @Plastico Flamingo Who’s on lockdown? Wearing a mask is still recommended, and required in some areas, because there are too many people still refusing to vaccinate. There’s no way to know who’s been vaccinated, and the un-vaxxed are the ones with the best chance of mutating the virus. So far, the vaccines have worked for all known mutations, but that may change. “Goon squad”? You sound like a crybaby.

    4. @CShield Thank you for sharing actual facts. The myth that the risks of getting the vaccine is worse than the risks of getting covid19 is simply false. There was a story published by the new york post about 23 people in Norway dying within 1 week of getting the vaccine. What that article left out, was that at that point in Norway the vaccine was being given in to the oldest, sickest people. A certain percentage of those people were statistically going to die that week: vaccine or no vaccine. On average, 400 people die each week in nursing homes and long care facilities in Norway. Correlation does not equal causation. And when the WHO reviewed those incidents, they did not find any unexpected or untoward increase in fatalities -which makes sense- the vaccine protects against covid19, not the concept of mortality. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine was paused after 6 people developed serious blood clots. While some vaccine skeptics pointed to that as evidence that vaccines are dangerous, it actually points to the opposite. The CDC paused it out of an abundance of caution. The safety risk of vaccines is rigorously and publicly analyzed; it’s not shrouded in secrecy by nefarious forces seeking to inject microchips into people. These were 6 out of more than 6.8 million vaccines doses given- which is less than the normal rate of blood clots forming in people to begin with.

  2. When you look up race hustler in the dictionary, you’ll see Al Sharpton’s picture right next to it…

    1. I’m not sure if this man deserved what happened to him or not, since I don’t know the FACTS of this case. But I will say this: Whether here in America, or another country around the world, if you do NOT obey Police Officers’ instructions and force them into a split second decision, bad things can happen – and probably will. Again, that’s just general advice to people of ALL colors, and I do not know the facts of this case at all.

  3. MESSAGE TO THE ASIAN PEOPLE.
    IF IT WASN’T DONE WITH THE PEOPLE OF COLOR,WHAT MAKES YOU THINK ITS GPING TO HAPPEN WITH YOU. OH, YOUR A PERSON OF COLOR. I GORGOT.
    YOUR SONG IS MINE.SAME WORDS. DIFFERENT LANGUAGE. THIS IS AMERICA.

  4. Hmmm 185 page rap sheet? Don’t lionize someone who didn’t give crap about your safety or well being.

    1. I concur. Please follow the police officer’s instructions, otherwise you put yourself at much higher risk, and that applies to people of EVERY skin color.

  5. US sheriffs are selected on the same criteria than in the past in the Wild West. Fast draw and willing back shooter of Indians and other people of color.

  6. I’m wondering what is *so* damning to the officers *outside* of those 20 seconds of bodycam footage? Did they call him a few *choice* words ? Did they laugh ? Did they act in an unreasonable way that would’ve made *anyone* in Brown’s shoes panic & flee for their life ? What is it ?
