    MLK said “Darkness will not drive out Darkness only Light – Evil will not drive out Evil only Good” Let see how many times we see MLK taken
    out of context

      @Michelle Onayinka Right, especially after her ancestors stole this land and stole people and stole millions of lives and stole precious resources and on and on and on to this day, damn thugs.

      @Sue W Wow lmao. You still mad and can’t sleep because your boy is too much of a buffoon to ever outshine, outwit, out finesse the O even on a bad day. Mr. O showed the brilliance of a Black Man in high power. But your boy clearly is an embarrassment to his followers and indeed the world. If this were not true, trumpeters would be displaying extreme happiness and not extreme anger on a daily basis. Then on top of all this. your boy got impeached, something Mr. O was never stained with. What a laughable loser and by association, so are you. So like I said, You mad?

      I just watched an 80 yr old woman trying to protect her business get beat up by two black guys. Too many things that are hard to watch. Never shut down churches again for any reason.

    And that’s how Covid-19 will have a second wave

  4. The Looting has literally reached all the way over where I am and we had NOTHING to do with George Floyd

      @Michelle Onayinka I just saw a vid of some 3 black dudes messing with some cops car. Right at the end one of the black dudes poured gas on the car which then exploded

      It doesn’t matter they just need an excuse to rob and steal

      ..The Looters are not smashing shops and Vandalizing Property because of Floyd . Those that are engaged in such acts are Liberal Radical Leftists who have failed in Life , and are blaming Society for it , Instead of their own Incompetence . They couldn’t care less about Floyd or anyone else .

      Mlk accomplishments have been disgraced by welfare fed looter criminals…

    • David Canelas | May 31, 2020 at 9:53 PM | Reply

      They get so much reparations on a daily basis in the form of Free housing. Free income. Free jobs. Shoplifting. Burglary. Then they have to go loot and pillage the entire nation on top of that over something totally unrelated? There are so many drains on the prosperity of our nation, but this has got to be one of the worst.

    • David Canelas exactly there handed everything then they turn around and bite the hand that feeds. If there going to pull this crap I say demolish welfare completely

    • @Michelle Onayinka there still thugs

    • NightMusic1 what accomplishments? Black people are still being oppressed just in different ways 🤷‍♂️wasn’t MLK himself assassinated🤔so much for peaceful protest huh

      @Sam Summers You are racist. Periodt. People like you are the reason America is getting even worse

    • Michelle Onayinka Why are you calling him a racist. You lefties don’t have a clue what this is all about. George Soros paid for this sham of a protest. They are busing people into these cities to burn, rob and destroy. This isn’t a peaceful protest. Waking until dark.

      @Sue W its time the citizens got their guns out

    • How else was phase 2 going to come about… Phase 1 was a flop

  7. The EXACT SAME Karens who were complaining last week about masks and social distancing are now in these crowds chanting.

      @GothamDiesel and that’s your major concern?..you could focus your attention on the actual problem, but a person stealing a tv is so much more interesting.. #imnotracist

  16. Protest peacefully!!! Good. But start hurting others and their means to feed their families is wrong

    • That’s a result of decades if oppression. It will get worse. As it should. Whites have been oppressing blacks for way too long. … and I’m white. Its sickening and heart wrenching, yes.. so really I dont blame them… they should continue full force!!!!

    • Harvey Parhar | May 31, 2020 at 10:28 PM | Reply

      @jan joy …I know many successful African Americans , who don’t share your views .

    • Harvey Parhar they don’t have to 🤷‍♂️it’s the truth whether they agree or not…peaceful protests hardly work Many can argue that MLKs protest were just a formality because black people are still being executed by the state decades later 🤷‍♂️oh yeah who’s the other famous peaceful protester GANDHI…sure his peaceful protests got rid of British rule in India but for what?the caste system in India which they use to enslave themselves 🤔

    Yes, YES!!!!
    Justify the reason for which Cops racially profile. Genius!

  18. So sad that many have chose destruction over civil protesting

  19. This is all going to end real well. Liberal cities burn, woohoo!!!

      @Matthew The Great Coin Roll Hunter Glad I could make your day. Laugh now while your reign goes up in flames

    • @Bari Wambach Okay tough guy. You sound all the people who confronted the protestors and got their asses kicked. As I was saying this is happening in every state in the country spreading like wildfire. This has been building for years and you can’t stop it. This isn’t a isolated incident this is the fallout.

    • Good let the f#ckers burn, sanctuary and all and after it’s burned out build a wall around the ashes. Then we can go there and have a ice cream party
