    1. So true people should google the number of black mayors and police chiefs in the country it would amaze.

    1. How do you feel about YouTube allowing it on the platform? Just take a look at the video called: Censored Clip on Freedom of Speech | The After Party | No White Guilt | The Great Order

  1. When people say the system is broken and working against minorities, that’s not exactly accurate. The system is actually working as designed, to maintain the white power base that created these same systems.

    1. Have a gander at channel No White Guilt video titled Censored Clip on Freedom of Speech | The After Party | No White Guilt | The Great Order…ask YouTube why it’s still up.

    2. @black feel of course its ok. Humans in the past made mistakes. We now need to fix thoes mistakes

  2. As an old white guy with a black family I love dearly, I am very aware of what it is like for black folk, especially black young men, to have to constantly be on guard every time they go out in public, never knowing how or when systemic racism could come and destroy their life or family. White people have no idea how a life time of having to be on guard and having to teach your kids to be on guard can negatively effect folk, and make them fearful, resentful and angry! I don’t want my young grandchildren to know that feeling!

    1. Fun fact: The number one cause of death for black males between the ages of 1 and 44 is other young black men.

  3. Not really. The whole Justice System are all in collusion together. One Hooded robe cloaks the other.

  4. how come I haven’t seen the thing about the black guy they killed a white burglar n is in jail for a year now in Oklahoma

    1. Cali would be a great place , the other 49 states call it the the land of fruit and nuts

  5. Being the only white boy in my 6th grade class. My friends are black, now that I’ve been informed that I’m racist, don’t know what to do. You know what they are still my friends!!
