  3. Brundles and Bear says:

    I wish I could give her a hug. Brilliant speech

  4. Humongous420 says:

    This needs to go viral, her words are truly powerful and I respect the hell out of this woman.

  5. TheRumbles13 says:

    Anyone caught looting needs to be banned from social support programs

  6. Elizabeth Proverbs 28:9 says:

    Protesting is perfectly fine. LOOTING AND RIOTING ARE DESPICABLE.

    • Roberto Viana says:

      The problem is no one is protesting. All they are doing is rioting, burning and looting. Yet, the MSM keeps referring to them as protesters. Wake the hell up.

    • Elizabeth Proverbs 28:9 says:

      Jam Wes Lay you’re still believing this virus hoax? There is no virus. It’s just the flu, and they changed the name this year to scare people into hiding in their homes. WAKE UP. This is ALL ABOUT CONTROL. IT WAS PLANNED YEARS AGO, including the rioting. Next is food shortage.

    • Alex Tha Gr8 says:

      Elizabeth Proverbs 28:9 you’re such an idiot lol

    • Alexa Kearney says:

      AGREED

    • Elizabeth Proverbs 28:9 says:

      Alex Tha Gr8 what an excellent argument you make!! You show all the research you’ve done 😉

  7. Britney Spaulding says:

    Get this to #1 on trending people, this NEEDS to be heard by everyone!

    • your face reminds me when I stepped on a burrito 3 says:

      Depends if the corporate overlords at YouTube deem it politically correct

  8. Jamie Aguilar says:

    She speaks the truth, I stand with her.

  9. Queen Bish says:

    1 person looting destroys the work of a million people fighting for change

  10. Tommy713 says:

    She has an awesome point and I agree 100% It’s OK to Protest but violence, breaking into buildings take what you want, setting cars on fire is Not Acceptable.

  11. THE WASTED GAMER says:

    Good on her, she has my respect

  12. Prabhas-Bunny Mutual says:

    This should be an eye opener for the looters 🙏🙏

  13. TheresaG White says:

    “You don’t see corporations here.” She is right.

    • Rad Chad says:

      Jan Jansen none of these ‘protestors’ are decent. Zero.

    • Ashton Coventry says:

      @Jan Jansen whats wrong with capitalism?

    • Jasper Jasper says:

      @Thomas Hägg “She seems pretty racist. Anti-capitalist”. ?? How did you get that out of her speech?

    • Jan Jansen says:

      Ashton Coventry I live in the Netherlands and we have capitalism but it’s called social democracy (not to be mistaken with communism). We have social welfare and healthcare for all. US capitalism is the worst. You let poor people die because they have no healthcare. Shame on you shame shame shame if you are capable of shame

    • Jasper Jasper says:

      @Luke Sutton That corporation has money to rebuild…. the private will dissolve away and be replaced by more corporate business. Do you suppose that is the goal? Then who will be in control of our lives?

  14. Lil Plump says:

    The looting needs to stop especially in small businesses.

    • Damien Lee says:

      Facts i agree 😥😥😥 i swear they taking this way to far like tbh its has nothing to do with gorge Floyd

    • Johnny P says:

      What a minute I thought liberals were for small businesses and complain they can’t compete with bigger businesses. Looks like they care about more about themselves than others, they just put the small businesses out of business.

    • Megan Howard says:

      @Q Bearded no more death

    • Liz 🌻 says:

      Yeah I agree.. I feel bad for the businesses that we’re starting to get picked up and then this happens 🤦🏻‍♀️

    • Reb says:

      Idk why people are okay with big business getting looted. Essential workers who live paycheck to paycheck work at places like target and Walmart. My mother already lost one job to covid and now she’s missed at least 4 shifts at Walmart this week due to protests.

  15. Mike Johnson says:

    “Violence is impractical because it is a descending spiral ending in destruction for all. It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding: it seeks to annihilate rather than convert. Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love. It destroys community and makes brotherhood impossible. It leaves society in monologue rather than dialogue. Violence ends up defeating itself. It creates bitterness in the survivors and brutality in the destroyers.” ~ Martin Luther King

    • Beeblebrox One says:

      But we only got what levels of freedom we had because our ancestors used force and the threat of force to gain our liberty from the lords of the feudal lands who kept everyone in bondage to them, basically slavery, all throughout Europe before America was colonised.

    • Roman C. says:

      You are right but too deep, they would not understand that.

  16. Jackson Shea says:

    She’s channeling the spirit of MLK

  17. Gowoke Gobroke says:

    The looters are only taking advantage of his death not protesting it.

  18. Monica California says:

    Registered to vote and register to clean up all the neighborhoods

  19. bcabmac says:

    When insanity takes over, truth and strength from one individual can make the difference. Thank you young lady warrior!

  20. Michael Larossa says:

    Now that is what leadership looks like and sounds like. God bless this lady.

    • Cindy99765 says:

      @MetalHeart8787 It likely wasn’t safe for her to say these things when there were several looters there. Regardless, her message is still important, and she is correct that more people need to be politically active and vote leaders in that will help support communities.

    • rda says:

      Shes just another crazy person on the street thats all.

    • Glen Howarth says:

      rda she found that good stank crack still.

    • Victin' Bay says:
