Rev. Al Sharpton Says Daunte Wright’s Family ‘Wanted The World To Know That They Wanted Real Change’


  1. Isaiah 59:14 “And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter…”

    1. Look at Daniel 2:41-43 also. The immense image that Daniel saw represents past and current world governments. Look at how he describes the last world power (US) and how the toes are divided. Interesting huh?

    2. Even OJ tweeted about Lebron..50 Million followers need to stop!!! Hope the cop sues Lebron, Lakers team, Nike etc….

  2. Stalin once ripped all the feathers off a live chicken as a lesson to his followers. He then set the chicken on the floor a short distance away. The chicken was blooded and suffering immensely, yet, when Stalin began to toss some bits of wheat toward the chicken it followed him around. He said to his follower, “This is how easy it is to govern stupid people. They will follow you no matter how much pain you cause them, as long as you throw a little worthless treat once in a while.”

    1. @Bill Cosby Rockefeller was an American an and was the richest person in the WORLD.
      Number 2 was Carnegie (Irish immigrant when he was a child )

      There were some German millionaires here (many of them created the popular beers we still have)
      But what are you talking about???

      The money was HERE!!! Germany was flat broke after WWI.

    2. @Bill Cosby that is true. The German scientists, who were loyal to their own country, were then moved to the USA.
      Don’t forget though, Manny people did not even know about the Holocaust camps. “The first country Hitler invaded was his own”.

      Did you know Hitler had SIXTEEN assassination attempts on his life?? All from within his ranks and he survived them all. There were also German military coups attempts—also failed.
      So not every German backed Hitler….but they still
      Loved their country.


  3. The only change al sharpton wants is the money he can cram in his pockets. Preferably the paper kind.

    1. @abandoned hunter mike if only that were true.
      Regardless of race, gender, faith or partisanship, individuals like Sharpton are machiavellian – they have mastered psychological manipulation.

    2. @Patti Johnson I dont care that he makes money dont do it race baiting black people for his greed and pay taxes when u do or atleast donate to the black people u claim ur helping get justice for that’s my point

    3. @Brock G LeftMannin not. Evidently you haven’t read about him. He really is mot the person you think he is. He is a bandstand user.

  4. I understood he had a warrant for his arrest, and he was not the lovely family member, father as he is portrayed.

    1. @John Penisini Did you notice how I put “real mistake” not just “mistake”? And to my knowledge it is practically the same. You cannot sue a doctor without proving for certain based on other doctors’ feedback that they made a mistake. You cannot go after the individual officer for something dealing with on the job stuff unless others deem it irresponsible. “Qualified immunity balances two important interests—the need to hold public officials accountable when they exercise power irresponsibly and the need to shield officials from harassment, distraction, and liability when they perform their duties reasonably”. See the similarities?

    2. @This Guyyy do you see how that isn’t the same as malpractice? Qualified immunity deflects the responsibility away from the individual cop and instead puts the burden of the civil suit on the government. Doctors are not able to deflect responsibility from malpractice lawsuits, they have to directly fight the charges in court. That’s the main difference and is the reason why I want police officers to have to face their lawsuits, instead of having the local government (and by extension the taxpayer) pay for their mistakes.

    3. @Uberqueenbee The fight or flight response is an automatic physiological reaction to an event that is perceived as stressful or frightening. The perception of threat activates the sympathetic nervous system and triggers an acute stress response that prepares the body to fight or flee.

    4. @Yvette Baca I saw and read the complaint. I live in the Minneapolis metro area and he did fail to appear as part of his bail agreement and it was revoked. The August court date is a different case. The active arrest warrant was for the attempted armed robbery case. Police had already tried to place him in custody for this warrant and he fled, successfully. I’m sorry he died. He should have been tased and lived. But the officer in this case is not 100% at fault and this mob mentality of police hatred is not ok. The media aren’t helping and are spinning this out of control.

    1. @Promise You and nothing had changed in those decades aside from him getting rich. Median white and black household wealth gap hasn’t closed at all since the early 70s. Say bahh 🐑.

    2. @0415jacob Ok I am white and 60 I am too old to knock down statues, but happy they did.🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣✊✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿🏳️‍🌈💙 BLM Proud of the Rioters they make changes.

  5. Everything Al Sharpton does, or has ever done, has been easy for him. No one who lives like that is trustworthy.

    1. Don’t forget about the leader of BLM. Who obviously is to busy hopping from her 4 multi million dollar homes to be there.

    2. Sharpton sniffed that paycheck out like a bloodhound. You know what time it is when he pulls up to the scene 😂

    3. @Linda Stone Oh ok, so DonnyBabyHands and Epstein can snatch up 13yr olds and fly them off to an island in their private jets because they have more money than God — that’s fine. But if a leader of BLM has multiple million dollar properties in her portfolio . . . . well then, she’s wrong for that?

    1. should of been at home 16 yrs old running the streets with a gun but it’s that cops faultwouldn’t got any better cuz when you turn eighteen he still would have had that gun and he still probably would have been in the same situation he just started early

    2. That is exactly it, that kid was headed for prison, but now all of a sudden they had the highest expectations for him.

  6. We-were-made-courages

  7. A gang member known to carry guns fights with cops the try and evade his warrants. Such a role model for the other parents wanting a lotto ticket for their little thug.

  8. It’s hard to take Al Sharkton seriously after knowing what he did to Tawana Brawley. If you’re too young or don’t remember, just google her name.

  9. Dude the kid escaped custody and jumped in his car where he could have a weapon, creating chaos and panic, leading to his death. Let’s have at least minimal accountability, for chrissakes.

  10. Here are some changes
    1- obey the law
    2- be a good citizen
    3- comply with the police
    I think it’s pretty easy to do!
    Maybe you’ll should watch Chris Rock show 😁

  11. Imagine the people that got killed by police if they only kept quit and just fought there case in court they would still be alive so sad

  12. I feel for Duante’s family, let them grieve. However, rappers celebrities, politicians etc should give the ‘DONT RESIST’ msg, but they never do.

  13. My mom was an amazing reporter and then an activist for the lost of native Colorado aspen trees, then it was mental health issues in Western Colorado… and then… alcoholics …because we lost my older brother.. that way and through his use of firearms. Then… she cried and got breast cancer again. (She had it 3 times.) She was very emotional about losing my older brother though. She lived with his heartbreaking divorces and his defeat of alcoholism… and his..smoking nonstop. He was so gifted, so inspiring and thoughtful. (He also loved writing his letters to me and was always calling me …or talking to my son. But, my mom was just broken in losing my brother. She became fierce about Colorado rural health issues. She wrote many news headlines and columns in all the local newspapers for over 35 years in journalism. But, her nonstop communications to the world, and to people… she loved so much, sustained her in very dark times like these mass murders and our fabulous pandemic. I was grieving for the murders we are listening to recently and after the George Floyd murder trial was over, I thought of this all day long yesterday. It’s just heartbreaking! Guns and police brutality are a deadly combination in America. We can do better. We must do our best ways of advocating for fewer assault weapons. Like the one used by the 21 year old Syrian born mass shooter in Boulder, Colorado. Heard today’s is facing additional charges. At only 21. When does this stuff end in America! Guns and police brutality are choking us!!

    1. That’s a sweet story. It could start with a father in the home like Denzel Washington said. That could reduce criminal activity. So less police engagement as a result. Also gun control, you sited one example, mine is when men successfully stopped a potential mass gunman in church. Sadly two people died not including the shooter but it could have been worse.
