  1. Trumpland has no justice. Especially in Washington DC.

    They would’ve BEEN shot dead immediately!! They would’ve NEVER hesitated

    • There’s no way blacks would have gotten anywhere near those steps! Police are very aggressive when dealing with black and hispanic protesters.

    The police didn’t attack because they really wanted to be part of the Trump rioters.

  4. The privilege of the irresponsible is troubling.

  5. YES YES Joy preach the truth young lady every black person feels the same way if it was black people oh lord help us all! Smh

  6. Gabriel Sterling predicted someone will get killed. Sadly he was correct.

  7. Not shackled, arrested OR dead…but DEAD.

    joy Reid spoke the 100% the truth with her statement

    • No, she oversimplified the events and made some very poor unfounded comparisons. She is one of the more sickening figures on TV.

    • 100% a false illusion and can only exist at one point in time. Especially in politics, wdf do you think.

    • The insight she just provide cast a light and shadow over the preferential, bias, protectionism experienced by whites that continues to subjugate, marginalize, disparage, and dehumanize blacks seeking justice in the obvious face of injustice and illegal acts perpetrated continually against my community is appalling to say the least but the toleration of these activities that was met with minimal force is sickening and disturbing. I will never come to know such privileges in this great land of ours and for those that know it live it breathe it and dismiss it as something else while it was broadcasted before our eyes is either a fool or playing one!!!

      @James Paul What you said is false. The terrrorists who stormed the Capital were let go by the Capital Police. The Capital Police even held the door open for those terrorists to leave the capital Building freely without being arrested. If people of color had done the same thing these White supremacists had done today there would be many dead people of color and hundreds of people in color in jail. @James Paul you will not acknowledge that reality that Joy Reid spoke about and thats why the mob of terrorists could get away with doing what they did in the capital on 1/6/2021

      @James Paul You are not black therefore you do not agree with Joy speaking the truth.

  10. BINGO Ms Reid… BIIIIIINGO…. that is the sound of a nail being hit on the head…

  11. Joy you’ve just said out loud what every black man and women is thinking quietly thank you 🙏

    • Then what Black you know that would pick up an Gun and I don’t mean against his own kind ???

    • PalpatinesEvilEx | January 7, 2021 at 3:29 AM | Reply

      @Jay Spence …did this comment make you feel good about yourself? If so, you need better ways to raise your self esteem. Grow up 💁🏾🙄

    • And many white folks too. But like others here, I wasn’t quiet about it 🙂

    • If only saying it will make a difference, smh. Everyone knows what she said is true. Black or white, cop or civilian – we all know. Yet it persists…

    • It persist because we as a people let it and that’s why applaud what them white folks did they just showing us what we need to be doing as an people, so I’m mad…

  12. Those cops taking selfies with the mob should be fired immediately and treated like one of the mob and arrested!!!!

  13. The police let the protesters into the congress and took selfies with them.

    Trump has gone to far, every rep. Who helped bring this should be arrested starting with trump

  15. Chris_P_Bacon | January 6, 2021 at 8:44 PM | Reply

    The cops that fled in the face of rioters and allowed the Capitol to be sacked should all be fired.

  16. That’s why the capitol was breached with no security in sight. According to Trump 10 years for anyone who damage federal property let’s see

    • Yep THAT PART.

    • I remember that- about the statues. I think the next administration will be prosecuting these crimes though. But we’ll see…

    • And 10 more years for sedition.

    • Trump sent national guard to oregon claiming the protesters will damage federal building, cos trump see oregon as blue state and what about black lives matter match and protest ,the same ,cops were hunting them down ,but here they were tearing our liberty House apart and no one did nothing, people die ,no arrest ,I mean where do I begin with the injustice comming from those who supposed to be the protector of our freedom ,liberty and the nation in genaral.

      Yes let’s see that come into play…

  17. Joy Reid was spot on – I concur with her completely.

  18. If this was a blm action the cops would have turned DC into a free fire zone.

  19. If anyone needed a clearer definition of “white privilege”…here it is. Laid bare, clear as day for all to witness.

    • It’s as plain as the nose on my face. No one can close these eyes and pretend “white privilege” doesn’t exist.

      Now the whole world can see this for themselves from the youngest to the oldest this being going on since Day one. Sorry that lady Vet got killed but the men involved should all receive the same punishment no questions asked guilty

    The lack of cops and national guard ?? this was organized from the top.

    • Someone said never attribute to malice what is adequately explain by incompetence. But you’re right. They had to know this was a possibility and their lack of preparation is evidence of complicity.
