    1. @Olds Rocket 88 Trump Supporters broke windows and crawled in, maybe you need to watch the video because that’s breaking and entering, if someone tries to enter your property that way, you have a right to defend it.

    2. @B Taylor Sorry B Taylor but if the police hadn’t sent the wrong message by opening up the gates and waving them in, they would have never even gotten close to the building. The fences were there for a reason, to keep people out. Oh no they broke windows. How many businesses burned to the ground last summer? How many cops were killed last summer? How many children were killed last summer? How many blacks are killed each and every weekend in Chicago? Nobody was even killed by rioters at the Capitol. Your side even had to lie about the cops death. The video of the woman who was shot shows armed police walking away from the scene and doing nothing to stop her before she was shot.

    3. @Mike Duncan And who does your Trumpy overlord owe money to? He has investments in Russia and that is a FACT. Biden has ordered a study in China in Wuhan. Did Trumpy do that? No, he didn’t because he was afraid.

  1. Fun fact, one of the main catalysts of the riot was that a local newspaper, the Tulsa Tribune, ran a sensationalist piece about how Rowland allegedly assaulted Page, highlighting the racial components. 100 years later, our news agencies are still stirring up racial tensions and riots by putting their spin on events before all the facts come out and portraying everything as black vs. white.

    1. @Garrick Thomas no proof that the wht came there to lynch rowland yet there is proof that blks opened fire killing 10 wht ppl

    2. @Alex Manzewitsch blk ppl shot first, they killed 10 wht ppl at courthouse.
      This does not justify any violence but when 1 group starts shooting you cant be mad at the group being shot at to shot back,,,, you also cant tell them when to stop

    3. Wasted Trojan they got whipped up into a mob by their own hatred. Tulsa wasn’t an isolated event. These “riots” took place all over the county for years. It was really ethnic cleansing and needs to be exposed.

  2. We can also remember the brave soldiers that fought to end slavery in the Civil War.

    1. @Luv N Life We had black history in social studies yes. I’d never go to an all black history class if that’s what you mean. I know that black people’s parents often teach them to hate white people and I want nothing to do with that.

    2. @Jeremy Gibson My comment to you was solely on the lack of grammar in your insult to someone else. I was not attempting to argue your point anywhere in my comment. My point still remains valid. I question why you feel the need to insult people? Does that make your ideas more powerful? I see by using the recently popular “boot-licker” insult that you are a easily persuaded by growing vox populi’s opinion instead of forming your own. That definitely leaves me to question the integrity of what you perceive as the “truth” about history and how much validity in your comments actually hold water. I will ask you to do better as well.

      Edit*

    3. @Luv N Life Your ancestors sold you to ours like cattle. They didn’t care. That’s what happened. That’s the truth.

    4. Ederson, excellent point. Too bad MSNBC wants our country divided. Nothing makes them happier than ppl dying.

    1. @sowishful Dudes just a weirdo being edgy on a video that has nothing to do with memorial day. Could careless about what happened to anyone but himself and his family line.

    2. @Garrick Thomas The “Black Activist” that were armed with rifles threatening people marching for Tulsa the other day don’t deserve any respect. You’re a disgrace.

    3. @Cognitive Supreme Talking to these type of looney bins will make even Einstein lose some brain cells. They are capable to manage in the real life of society, they love off of race baiting and being a nuisance to humanity.

  3. Try to remember that this may not have ever happened had not a Tulsa newspaper wouldn’t have created a sensational headline that provoke this outrage.

  4. you know it occurs to me we on a “platform” can be blocked but why shouldnt we be allowed to block channels and pages we don’t like. seems only fair

    1. @Scott guilt is a personal feeling, not one given from learning the truth of historical events.

    2. @B. Ballooon It shouldn’t be a surprise that your American history classes aren’t focused on other countries actions.

    3. @Yoatemybeans you’re ignorant, I learned about this in u.s. history in the 11th grade at a public school… We even had to do a report on it and how we felt about it.. What was sad was we weren’t allowed to talk about the Vietnam war because Obama’s administration tried to get it taken out of history books

    1. AFRICAN AMERICANS CREATED MEMORIAL DAY TO GIVE OUR AFRICAN AMERICAN SOLDIER A PROPER BURIAL BC THEIR FELLOW WHITE SOLIDERS THREW THEIR BODIES IN A MASSIVE GRAVE JUST LIKE THEY DID THE NATIVE AMERICANS. WHILE WHITES WERE GIVEN A PROPER BURIAL SITE.

    1. No days off from “divide and conquer” will be permitted anymore. Have a wonderful day, colonizer!

  5. “I’m especially honored to share the stage with Britney. I love those barrettes in your hair man. I tell you what, she looks like she’s 19 years old sitting there like a little lady with her legs crossed. Britney you’re doing triple duty” Creepy Joke Biden to 9 year old Britney May 28, 2021

  6. Just like MSNBC to hijack Memorial Day. It’s possible to celebrate both. How about Tuesday. Why the disrespect? What’s the point here? What’s the end go?

    1. JUST ABOUT EVERY PERSON WHO CAME TO AMERICA FOR THE DREAM WAS A SLAVE . LOOK AT THE COAL MINERS . THANK GOD YOUR FAMILY CAME OVER HERE NO MATTER HOW

    2. Oh yes thank you white man for coming up with the conclusion that slavery is wrong. Bare minimum smh

    1. Who’s forcing you to be here? Are you butt hurt because they exposed an ethnic cleansing?

  7. “PLEASE SAY A PRAYER FOR ALL OUR FALLING HEROEE, OF ALL WAR & CONFLICTS WHOM SACRIFICED THEORY LIVES ON FOR OUR UNITED STATES OF AMERC A & ALL THE CITIZENS THE PRO TECH ON OUR BEHALF!” “DROP THE PUCK!”

  8. Hope everyone enjoyed there day off today and the freedoms taken so for granted on a regular basis, remember the brave fallen of this country and look at your days as blessings that so many are no longer able to partake in.

  9. On memorial day really give me a break glad my brothers died for our country and you run this today. How disappointing im disgusted
