Why Police Violence Against Latinos Is Often Overlooked

    1. The white community is scare S***** of the replacement that is coming! … USA is one country with many beautiful cultures!!! Just chill everyone!!!

    1. Mary Anne Horn – And ALM, GLM, LGBTQLM..?

      Yeah, start with an already fractured group so that we’ve already self-divided for them to conquer. Smart. SMH.

    2. STOP co opting please… get your OWN slogans. Instead of “praying” for police reform whites need to stop supporting and protecting white klan cops

    1. @John Clarke There’s no “narrative.” Wow, you people who think that really need to take off that political filter and stop making that assumption or you will never understand how journalism works. You really think they’re trying to LIMIT their share of the market? While working for sponsors who want their ads to reach as many people as possible, left or right?

      Yes, each story has a narrative. It’s necessary to present the raw facts in ways the viewer can understand. But there’s no all-encompassing “liberal agenda.” They don’t work for the DNC. They’re JOURNALISTS.

    2. @J Groovy Do they ever have black people on who hate critical race theory? Or who are against victimhood talk. From what I’ve seen msnbc only allows black people on who agree with their narrative. And occasionally they’ll bring in someone like Michael Steele. Also, they NEVER bring in true progressives. Just faux-progressives like Elizabeth Warren who stabbed Bernie in the back. But if you feel msnbc is the only network telling the truth, we’re just too far apart to agree on very much

    3. @Pew pew McPewface Bernie Sanders and progressives are far far far far left. msnbc is only pretending to be left. The racial crap they’re selling is an attempt by them to pretend they’re on the side of the poor and middle classed. They’re not. Biden will appoint a black person to a cabinet position and then fight against increasing the $7.25 minimum wage. All the race stuff is just so white liberals can feel like they’re fighting for disadvantaged people when in reality, Biden’s policies hurt poc. I oversimplified, but that’s basically it I think

  1. I’m 61 years old Hispanic there only two races in America on paper if you’re not white you are Black I seen it in life, aeronautics,and space system programs

    1. I’m a mixed race native and white. That’s so true. half of all people of color in this country are non-black and no one covers us. Which in a way, I’m thankful for because I hate victimhood talk

    2. ricardo Campos Jr – Exactly. That’s why I question the wisdom of having a different group for every little ethnic subdivision in the country.

    3. @John Clarke Be proud of yourself.. DNA n heritage n individuality… Family tree is family tree…

    1. @CShield thank you. I appreciate you showing me your fear. I know you can’t afford to fly to America and your fear will keep you out. I got what I wanted

    2. @B. T. Dems manufactured disunity and blamed Trump, now Joe is the king of disunity. First Killary calls US deplorable and then Joe calls us Cro-Magnon… And what hasn’t Pelosi called US? You guys sure are bringing manufacturing jobs back- lie manufacturing

  2. My spanish cats get brutalized just as much as the rest of our minority communities it’s said we all don’t have the same voice

  3. So now we have different types of racism: black racism, latino racism…
    What’s the difference?
    Do you realize that Italians are ‘latino’, as are Spaniards!!
    Both are white and European.
    Indigenous people are not of latin descent and are not ethnically related to Africans.
    Do you realize your ignorance?

    1. @Scientific Methodologist don’t go patting yourself on your back just yet. You’ll have to elaborate.

    2. @FactsarenotdirtyFwords google her. It’s really simple. Do you have google?

    1. Go to faux if you don’t like it, Fox only cares about that one demographic, you know what I’m talking about.

    2. @Scientific Methodologist lol, have you ever seen trump supporters?

    3. @I am a pig eyed traitor That is in love with Putin That’s mostly all there are.

  4. Working a job close to Venice High School years ago, the LAPD chased a 16 year old brown student onto my job site, because he was driving his Dad’s Mercedes, must be stolen. 7 cops with guns drawn, asking me to look for the gun he didn’t have. One said, I was going to take him down.. a kid, who was just driving his Dad’s Mercedes

    1. and when you have a specific demographic that usually steals cars that’s usually what’s going to happen. so that’s not true that Mexico is one of the chop shop centers of the world? we just made all that up?

  5. Democratic cities seems to breed law enforcement who trample individuals rights frequently.

    1. Mister Fecal – Seems like that to you because you obviously don’t understand how government works and how cities evolve.

    2. that explains all of the police racism and corruption in the Democratic strong holds of alabama, louisiana, texas, florida, the carolinas, etc.

    1. @Scientific Methodologist Awww… how cute… “I’m not, You are… No, you are, I’m not…”
      …now go back outside and play… preferably in the ROAD!

  6. Police reform isn’t nearly as important or exigent as is reforming people’s behaviors, attitudes, personal choices and the VALUES-taught in the home.

    Irrespective of race, creed, color, gender, sexual preference, religion… All of it… the proper values that produce desirable results at the personal and societal levels start in the home, and if you fix these problems the police won’t have anything to do but sit around twiddling their thumbs and shuffling papers. And I’m sure that’s the way they would prefer things, too.

    1) Finish high school, 
    2) Get a full-time job
    3) Wait until age 21 to get married and only then have children.

    “Our research shows that of American adults (Completely irrespective of race, creed, color, gender, sexual preference, religion, etc.) who followed these three simple rules, only about 2 percent are in poverty and nearly 75 percent have joined the middle class (defined as earning around $55,000 or more per year). There are surely influences other than these principles at play, but following them guides a young adult away from poverty and toward the middle class.”
