    “Three things can not hide for long: the Moon, the Sun and the Truth.” ― Gautama Buddha

  2. Imagine, falling for another dishonest billionaire. Christ.

  3. Rev is 100% right. Bloomberg doesn’t regret implementing stop & frisk. He regrets that it came backstage too haunt his run for potus.

  4. First time I’ve heard a black man talk about native problems.
    Thank you brotha! A’ho!

    • @Adaryll Kelly Talk to America every chance you get your not alone.STAY WOKE

    • @Trippy Tiffy America will never grow up America was founded on a lie that makes white pride and the white establishment real and puts them today in a panic of fear that they are on the edge of no longer existing in the numbers of the past and they fear of retaliation from others for their past and current deeds.Except it you was the underdeveloped animal not the rest of the human racist ONLY THE WHITE MAN BELIEVED IT SELF TO BE PERFECT.

      Yes Penny ,He hit the nail to the head ..The truth well spoken ..

    • Now if we can get Native Americans to speak on black problems.

  5. Isn’t wonderful how all of the talking heads except the good Reverend, are ignorant or ignores issue dear to the black community, so to them “stop and frisk” the infringement of the sovereign rights of fellow Americans is excusable because we need to get rid of Trump.

  6. Not after what he did to the minorities in New York. He made them targets for the POLICE.

    • Very few stopped had any drugs or weapons but over 1.5 million were stopped and frisked. Imagine the emotional toll that this takes on a person. Treated less than Human. It’ Humiliating.

      Bloomberg helped curb hundreds of wanton killings – extreme yes, but it worked and New York is much safer now. What would you have done?

    • @Arden McConnell Crime went down in New York, just like the rest of the US over the time Stop & Frisk was going on. That policy was a failure. Other factors brought crime down.

  7. Michael Bloomberg I’m sorry for everything now vote for me

    • I’m voting for whoever the Democrats nominate – Bloomberg included.

    • victor polanco | February 14, 2020 at 8:35 PM | Reply

      That is right in certain way. However, it is really sad to see that this guy, “Blooper/meme/emoji,” could buy an election. This feeling sucks!

    • William Ferguson | February 14, 2020 at 9:23 PM | Reply

      @omi god Progressives will stay home and not vote for Bloomberg. “Vote Blue No Matter Who” just allows the Democratic Party to remain corrupt.

    • @William Ferguson Staying home just allows the most criminal Administration in history to stay in power, and thus we see revealed the TRUE motivation of the Bernie Bro – to turn America into a white-male-dominated fascist state.

    • @omi god Bloomberg is a more competent Trump. You guys are nuts, or extreme Trumpists.

  8. Donny Deutsch calls for civil unrest, while he hides safely in his bunker.

  9. Bloomberg also said that we need to tax the poor more, to regulate their behavior

  10. Thank you rev. We need to look the whole picture and take into consideration their past.

  11. Rev. Barber, you hit the Nail on the head….it’s much, much more.

      @NDFOOTBALL You sound like a bot or somebody who got paid to say that. Which is it?

    • Anthony Browne | February 14, 2020 at 8:15 PM | Reply

      @Glenda Lewman Yea, but don’t bring the past with you.

    • 88Gibson LesPaul | February 14, 2020 at 9:22 PM | Reply

      @NDFOOTBALL There are some Blacks for Trump. I think I’ve seen at least one standing behind him at some of the rallies.

    • 88Gibson LesPaul | February 14, 2020 at 9:24 PM | Reply

      @Glenda Lewman Trump wants to run against Bernie because he has successfully branded Bernie as a Communist. Bernie isn’t a Communist, not even close, but facts don’t matter in this election. Trump wants to run against Bernie and that’s why when you see a pro-Bernie comment, you don’t know if it’s coming from a Bernie supporter or a Trump supporter. Strange world.

    • Wow. Someone says something you find ironic. Ur educated response is to accuse them of being a Russian bot. And u call the right crazy conspiracy theorist. Hahahaha. Yall are below idiots.

    So, it’s ok for a billionaire to purchase his way into the most powerful position in the world. We’ve already got a puppet, now we’re supposed to go full oligarch?

  13. Rev. Barber is right, demand more. And remember Dr. West’s remark on the black political class: it “confuses the gravy train with the freedom train” ✌🏼

    • And most a black Americas are riding the gravy train to day ie the NAACP .I got mine and if you come from the right family we will help you.YOU LEARNED WELL FROM YOUR WHITE MASTERS

    This panel seems to have been instructed that they are not allowed to utter the words “Bernie Sanders.”

    • victor polanco | February 14, 2020 at 8:30 PM | Reply

      Second that…Welcome to the “Elite Opinion” I think the reverend tries to be neutral…in the meantime, let’s talk about memes and emojis! Give me a break.

    Bloomberg said at MIT that half the teachers should be fired.

    • I live in upstate New York most of them do .Union contractes prevent that from happening and many of the teachers her came from other failed professions that they worked in before teaching

    • @Mae Gary There’s a difference between earning tenure at MIT and being an instructor (not even professor) at low level colleges. While I agree that there are professors that are terrible at their job, that’s not really the same thing as the argument you’re bringing up.

  17. For me, an avid anti-trump person- Bloomberg is probably a bridge too far.

    • Then what is Trump? You would take Trump over Bloomberg? Must not be very anti-Trumbonr if that’s the case

    • Grace Grit and Glory | February 14, 2020 at 6:53 PM | Reply

      @Chuck Wortman No, nominate one of the other candidates.

    • Scherry Pierce | February 14, 2020 at 7:24 PM | Reply

      I want a person who will knock trump on his fat butt! So far the Democratic line up is great but those left leave me worried except for Pete Buttigieg.
      The fanatical evangelicals want trump because he will put in judges that are far right winged, meaning their against abortion and homosexuality. They actually are prepared for us to enter a Cival War over it. I know this because most of my family are fanatical evangelicals.
      I quit going to church when they began teaching trump was chosen by God.
      So, when Mike Bloomberg came on board, I thought now maybe here is someone who might could really get trump out!
      Bottom line. I will vote for whoever is nominated that isn’t Republican.

    “We’ll get back to his enforcement of systemic racism later. Real question: Does he have a Snapchat filter? HAHAHAHA”

    This is sickening

    • Donny: “yeah but back to the memes.”

    • Kenneth Jackson | February 14, 2020 at 7:43 PM | Reply

      I wanted to puke at the end. Rev actually speaking for the community about what is really important for millions of people… all to be completely dismissed for “MEMESS OH WHAT ARE THOSE?! TALKING GIF FACE??”

    • Anthony Browne | February 14, 2020 at 8:22 PM | Reply

      @Kenneth Jackson With Trump in office everybody is showing their true colors. We knew they always took the Black vote for granted. Bernie is going to change all of that and they are scared. Bernie’s marched with Blacks. Bernie’s with to jail with Blacks. Bernie’s stood up and fought for Blacks, now Blacks are going to stand up and vote for Bernie.

    There’s a candidate that does talk about health care, better wages, voting rights for felons. Say it. Bernie Sanders.

    • The ONLY ONE

    • @JERMAINE WREN ruck off

    • And what has he accomplished in 40 years? Where is his coalition of followers in the house and senate that will help push through his measures? It’s great that he has people following him, but unfortunately, the people who need to be behind him are not. Which makes his stands pipe dreams.

    • Anthony Browne | February 14, 2020 at 8:24 PM | Reply

      @K Jo That’s why those people who don’t stand with Bernie will be voted out. Those people you talk about haven’t done anything for anybody and don’t want to. Bernie does and he will.

  20. Bloomberg
    – Supported the Iraq war and still thinks it was a good idea
