    Joe Rogan once asked Neil DeGrasse Tyson how to stop racism… he responded by saying, “we stop talking about it!” and you know what… he’s right

      @Reflecting I’d say he was thinking clearly enough to plan out an execution of 4 innocent people, and then…carry out his plans. The HVAC guy was just at the wrong plane at the wrong time.

      @Alan Killian You will know who they are and what they are about, by their deeds. Who got the $100 Million blm got in 2020? What, if any, group did that $100 Million help? What did Susan R do in her accounting for blm? How much of the $100 Million did Susan R pilfer?

  5. Producers: Dammit! We can’t cover this story for more than 72hrs.

  6. This is a hate crime

  7. Hate crime !!! Black male kills 5

  8. These are the people you’re paying to throw a ball. Why don’t you knock it off and support your own people for a change. Diversity is not a strength.

    More than likely opioid addiction

  10. Don’t let this divide us on the 2nd amendment, there are bad people and good people in America. Even if some go crazy an overwhelming amount of gun owners are law abiding. Don’t let the narrative sink in. God bless America and everyone within her borders

    The only way mass shootings stop happening is if people decide to stop doing them and I don’t why they would stop because I don’t why the do them in the first place.

  12. Well would you look at that!

  13. Could the camera be a little farther away? 🙄
