  1. a Victor?? great deal of respect for the man.. but looking at recent events suggest not all that much on social injustice has been achieved since those ’60 s marches though..

  2. Keep your tongue from evil
    and your lips from speaking deceit.
    ❤ not hate

      But speaking hate is all that msnbc commenters know how to do.

    • As a congressional John Lewis did little to help the black community, if I’m wrong, correct me and tell me a few accomplishments that I might not of heard about.

    🛐Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior.

    • Conservatism is but you have AOC trying to destroy America with her thugs and criminals and because of AOC more innocent black babies and black children are going to be gunned down in the streets shot in the head

      Muddy Water – Do your own research! We’re it your professors! If you don’t know, we don’t care because YOU aren’t important enough for us to care what you think!

    • @Gabriela Feliciano I did do my research and as a congressional leader he did little for the black community. he’s like Obama, he made huge promises but he had no accomplishments (except he made a few million for himself/family).

    • @Muddy Water *mud, I may thank whomever i please to. thanks.*

      Muddy Water – Yeah, right! Liar!

    John Lewis = GOOD TROUBLE . Donald J Trump = American Embarrassment .

  9. The son of two sharecroppers, now resting in state on the same platform that held Abraham Lincoln and JFK. 🙌🙏

    • @snoop alert And this changes Lewis’ history how exactly? 🤔
      Because being poor wasn’t only a black thing back then, nor is it today. But please go on with your “point.” 🙄

      Ro G
      But America is so racist though, right? Where are the MILLIONS of WHITE RACIST protesting this black man being there? Oh yeah because there are not that many racist, thats why.

    • @Don Williams 👈 Thinks racists are always willing to express their racism out in the open.

    • Don Williams | July 27, 2020 at 7:11 PM | Reply

      @Ro G Hmmm guess all those racist hid their racism by being able to vote anonymous both times for Obama huh?

    • @Don Williams 9% of Obama voters, went for t’rump in 2016. 13% of t’rump supporters voted for Obama in 2012.
      So I guess you’d have a point if not for the 50 or so million people who fell outside of those segments.
      But yes…great point there! 😆😅😂🤣

    John Lewis and others of the 1960s started as honorable men. They are leaving us as honorable men. To be celebrated for your maturity, your courage and your honor by your peers is the true measure of a man. RIP John Lewis.

  19. Anyone who says we haven’t made GIANT strides against racism in this country is ignorant!!!
    John Lewis – the son of a poor Alabama sharecropper – rises from the era of Jim Crow laws, segregated lunch counters and the KKK (Yes, it WAS a Democratic organization!) – to one of the highest offices in the land!!!! And his story is not unusual!!!!
    Once beaten by state troopers and arrested 40 times – he now lies in state in the nation’s capitol and is revered!!!!!
    This could not have happened in any other country!!!!!

  20. This had to be one of the smelliest funerals of all time. My God!
