Reverend Who Marched With MLK In 1962 Reflects On Protests | The Last Word | MSNBC


  1. You’ve been fighting for equal rights your whole life I hope you see change lady I truly hope you see chang but we’re not gonna see change with Donald Trump as our president

    1. Opportunity Zones, Prison Reform/First Step Act, Sentencing Reform, 2nd Chance Initiative, funding of HBC’s….it has already changed, you’re just too stupid to realize it. Propaganda works, enjoy watching MSNBC you ill-informed moron.

  2. One Love to her FR FR…. Im not a 2nd class citizen. Im a hard worker and take care of mine. I came a long way. I am America!!

  3. very well said and done, ty rev beasley, mr perry, mr o’donnell. it is hard to believe that we could have lost so much decency since trumputin got installed into office, and yet we have.

  4. Putin, Kim Jong Un, Duterte, Bolsonaro, MBS, and Al-Assad all have one thing in common. They are all brutal strongmen and dictators who demand respect, loyalty, and dogmatic obedience to them and them alone. This is exactly why Trump has a sick and demented admiration for these tyrants. He sees himself as one of them.

    Time and time again, Trump keeps telling us exactly who and what he is. But unfortunately some people still refuse to believe him, or even listen to what he’s saying.

    June 15 2018
    Trump praises Kim Jung Un’s  control over his people.
    “He’s the head of the country,” Trump said of Kim during a Fox interview.
    “And I mean he’s the strong head. Don’t let anyone think anything different.”
    “He speaks and his people sit up at attention,”  Trump added. “I want my people to do the same.”

    Deep down, Trump has always despised America and our democratic republic. He has nothing but contempt for our Constitution, and the ” idea” of America. Trump has always favored despotic dictatorships. That’s why he speaks so highly of tyrants like Putin, Kim Jong Un, Xi,  Duterte, and MBS. And anyone who has been paying attention, knows that Trump has never hidden his true feelings about any of this. When someone repeatedly tells you, and shows you who they are, it would behoove you to believe them.

    1. That laughable stupidity and Trump Derangement Syndrome you’ve got is a laughable joke!

      You also, like all of the other blathering nutcases who hate Trump have been in never never lala fantasy island because you have Trump Derangement Syndrome.

      Mattis as well as the “faith leaders” who “condemn” President Trump ARE laughable FRAUDS!!


      “God And The Resistance – Romans Ch. 13 – God’s Minister’s Spiritual And Politically Authoritative”

    1. This is msnbc they won’t go there, his life didn’t matter. It sad how the media use people weather your black, white have left or right politic views

  5. One of the most insulting remarks I’ve heard from so-called ‘patriots’ is, if black people don’t like living in America, they can go back home to Africa… and I realized what an insensitive, racist trope it is. Going as far back as 1989 to N.W.A. decrying police brutality, to even Michael Jackson talking about it… Rodney King was beaten within an inch of his life and the 4 LAPD officers FALSIFIED their police report, not knowing they were being filmed… and white drivers speeding & driving drunk were not subject to that level of violence. So instead of addressing the problem of police targeting minorities, these white supremacists tell us to ‘get out’ … ‘leave’… That is the objective of these white nationalists & nazis – make life miserable for minority & immigrant communities so that we will ‘just go away’. To this day, the murders of rappers 2Pac & Notorious B.I.G. r still UNSOLVED! How??? With OUR forensic technology? That shows where law enforcement priorities lie.
    And when that didn’t work, they graduated from brutality to fatal shootings. The fact that Tamir Rice was a 12-yr old kid playing in a park & shot dead by police in Ohio, and his killer *Timothy Loehmann* still walks free in 2020 is a travesty of justice in the USA. George Floyd. Breonna Taylor. Botham Jean. How many more people will die UNPROVOKED at the hands of LAW ENFORCEMENT before WE THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA put a stop to it?

    1. @eric marie : I’am an Atheist but can appreciate the difference between demonic like tRump & these angelic like souls.

    2. @Baby drumphf I don’t agree, there is difference in scale but not in the spirit. You can’t listen to any news in USA without hear about god, jesus, swear on something, you are a religious state to the core, even slaves descendants are praying jesus ! Muslims and Christians organize slavery on both side of ocean, USA have to start thinking. Atheism isn’t enough, fighting is the way.
      USa always talk about being strong, but the are so weak they need Jesus all day long.

    1. Seriously you think she’s beautiful!? You’ve got bad eye sight or sour taste 😂 She’s whining all the way like a baby

  6. My grandson once asked me if I had one wish, what would it be?. I thought on this for some time, then said ” I wish all peoples around the world would go to bed one night and wake the next day with UNCONDITIONAL TOLERANCE”. He though I was crazy, until I explained. It is intolerance against another persons, skin color, religious beliefs, cultural difference that leads us on a path of destruction and enough is enough. Humans have been fighting wars for too long. Surely it’s time for peace!

  7. Yes. Our ancestors are guiding us. This is our moment people. It’s finally our time. We owe it to all the people who paved the way. We honor and respect them always.

  8. What a wonderful lady. She’s been fighting for black people to be treated with basic human dignity for longer than i’ve been alive. We can only hope she wins the battle in her life time 💕

  9. You’re not to be so blind with patriotism that you can’t face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it. Malcolm X ✊🏿✊🏿✊🏿

  10. I feel awful for George Floyd, his family, and protestors who’ve been abused; and for all those victims of Covid-19. But I going to coopt a phrase that is often used by Christians (while I’m not one, I do believe in God) “God works in mysterious ways.” Maybe we’re seeing God’s hand in this, guiding the nation to turn against Trump. To ensure his defeat. If you had told me in November 2019 that 2020 would be a really awful year in the beginning, that it would involve a pandemic, and nationwide protests as a result of Police brutality, and that our own military would be used against it’s own lawful citizens, I would’ve thought you needed to be returned to Arkham Asylum. But it looks like all of this is working against Trump, who I was certain would coast to reelection.

  11. Lawrence’s coverage, insights, analysis and way of looking into other corners of topics, which others sometimes miss, is why I watch these videos. I am very grateful to you Lawrence, and your team. Thanks ✌️👍
