    I learned about the Tulsa, Oklahoma massacre from Tony Brown’s Black Journal on PBS. It was not part of my history in school, and it was never discussed. Through the showing and airing of Black Wall Street from Tony Brown’s Black Journal. It was the first time that I new there was such a place called Black Wall Street in 1921. They say ignorance is bliss especially when you don’t know your own history. It is also a shame that our country distorts it’s own history.

      Cliff Medina you mean the trump party? Stop projecting, your moron is showing. Trump called Nazis very fine people so i think your party’s are switched around. Then again, trump supporters collectively have an IQ of 45.

      SUPPRESSION IS A GREAT WEAPON BUT GOD IS THE GREATEST WEAPON AND HE IS WAKING HIS PEOPLE UP! GOD HAS ENDED 400 YEARS OF SLAVERY IT’S NOW 401. HENCE THE PLAGUES AND ESCALATION OF GOD’S JUDGEMENT AGAINST AMERICA! THE BIBLE IS THE HISTORY OF GOD’S SON AND BLACK PEOPLE! THERE’S ONLY ONE RACE – MANKIND AND ANY OTHER REFERENCE IS TO ETHNIC GROUPS. THE ETHNIC WARS WILL END BY GOD’S HAND AND NOT MAN’S… WE ARE AT THE END OF THE GENTILE REIGN – NOTICE WHO THE GENTILES ARE…

      Deborah Ann Smith there is no god. No one will fix the world but us (because we are the ones that mess it up) and when you are busy muttering at the sky for magic intervention you aren’t making your life or the world better.

    Sometimes, all you have to do is walk through the door and you’ll know how the system will treat you.

  7. I get along fine with black people who live in the here and now and are friendly enough to approach. Same for white people.

      James Carey ask the pregnant woman that Georgie held at gunpoint how approachable he was.

    • @JESSICA SCHWARZ People that think I’m better than them hate me. People that believe we are on the same level are indifferent. But tell me, was I or wasn’t I born with privilege? I want to know. Yes or no?

    • @James Carey So was Daniel Shaver. Look him up. There is a sickening video of him begging for his life and crawling on his knees and he was still shot to death by the police. No riots over him because he enjoyed white privilege and deserved it.

    • @JESSICA SCHWARZ And you are a troll who’s butt is jealous of the crap that comes out of your mouth.

    • @Dan Chick Keep showing us your scales…don’t stop talking.

      What?

    • cyber6sapien | June 20, 2020 at 8:12 PM | Reply

      Yet another legacy of systemic racism. Barely 50 years after Jim Crow, and suddenly black people are supposed to just “get it together” .

    • Charles Perkins | June 20, 2020 at 9:51 PM | Reply

      Black lives don’t matter to black people they don’t care. They just want to be racist to whites.

      21 people shot in NYC in 24 hours. Defund the police? 😐

      cyber6sapien I’ve never been driven to do stupid things because someone didn’t like me. I overcame. As have many. Only in ONE community out of all the ished on communities do we see these levels of underachievement, violence, crime, illegitimate births, and other ailments. Guess which one?

  10. Jo Jorgenson 2020. Tired of the 2 party divide in this country? Then check her out!!

    • Frankie Jaquez | June 20, 2020 at 5:43 PM | Reply

      She has my vote already. I only hope others would look her up.

    • I am hoping that after this election in 2020! Our country can really start to see and change the 2 party system and give voice to more views and parties. But this election because I do not want Trump for another 4 years and Biden has shown compassion and competence I am voting for him. I don’t want to take any chances for Trump to be in office again only jail!

    So BLM can clog the streets of America and Trump supports can’t have a peaceful rally. Watch out a Change is coming to America, so get out of the Way before you get hurt. MSM hypocrisy will not be tolerated. You will be trampled on if you get in the way.

  14. if every black person gives me 10 bucks i’ll give them their 10 bucks back lol

  15. What goes around comes around like COVID-19 the HATE is worse than virus ‼️

  16. Magister Militum | June 20, 2020 at 8:12 PM | Reply

    Talking about crimes committed a century ago by racist Democrats in a pathetically lame attempt to connect it to Trump. That’s MSLSD.

  17. *Stop Systematic Race-Bating!* 🔥

  18. Lucky me😁
