      WolfThorn what a sad foolish statement. 🤨

    • James Remus says:

      Mir Bahil failing to see your point. Does that mean he deserved to die?

    • Dark Matter says:

      Floyd was arrested 19 times. In other words, 19 times he was racially discriminated and abused by police, right? 19 times he was falsley arrested….. 19. Society is ignorant and blind. I didn’t see any protests when the UPS driver who was hijacked by 2 black men died at the hands of police because the 2 men decided to go on a robbing spree then proceeded to shoot at police and civilians trying to get home after work during rush hour traffic. No protest cause the real victims was Hispanic and the other a white innocent bystander in his car. No protest because the criminals were black.
      They are fucking Hypocrites.

      “Whatchu mean they?”

      The black community is they.

      No cops = no black community. Facts

    • James Remus says:

      Most people are sane. The squeaky wheel gets the most attention. Ignore the foolery 😉

    • Dark Matter says:

      @PowerMad sounds just like Everytime a criminal gets killed… Stay ignorant, contradictive and media you blind fool.👍 You’re doing an awesome job for society with that logic.
