    I dont live in the USA but would like to send my sincerest condolences to the Floyd family. Such a tragic loss may he rest in peace. It’s time for change. We all deserve EQUALITY. I myself am heartbroken to learn how African American men woman and children have had to live their lives generation after generation. I dont understand why someone back in the 1600 s thought they could treat another fellow human being like this. We are not in the 1600s anymore and it’s time for everyone’s mindset to change. Justice for Mr. Floyd and so many others needs to happen. Now

    It is not mayors alone that affect change; it is those that enlisted in law enforcement; perhaps a new Public Service Draft should be established.

      Yep. The career-politician elitists who stay in office for decades while enriching themselves, their families, and their cronies while the middle-class shrink and the poor are still poor.

    I was very disappointed in the advertising and monetizing of this significant address. It was a real shame to see this message of healing and progress disrupted by greed.
