Our one son is bi racial ,So police are engaging those who protest George Floyd's murder

Tear gas rubber ammo as they make contact with those who are protesting a mans murder. Yet police will not engage those clown patriots who show up. With assault rifles flying Nazi flags or the confederate flag with tear gas or rubber rounds. This shit is upside down we all know it.

Our one son came to us through foster care years ago. We adopted and I joke and tell him heís the first African American Slav in the tribe as he has our last name. It is last name Eastern European. As his father is black his mom is white. He has his fatherís features in being dark skinned.

I told him this before and again if you ever find yourself compromised by police. No sudden moves just chill listen to what they say. And if you can try and turn on phone video to record or at least catch audio.

George Floyd was murdered and Iím just upset. Ask how many white men has this officer ever dealt with resisting arrest are they dead. I told my wife think if after the Emancipation proclamation, hold on Iím trying to say yes that happened in 1863 the order by Abe. Would it not have been awesome and Iím saying if we welcomed the three or four million Americans that were enslaved after 1865 as equal citizens.

A anger rant or ramble this is so tragic fucked up.

3. Angry. Very angry.

Most of the time I try to practice taking the high road. It truly is the better path.

However, I volunteer to put my 60 yo white woman's knee on murderous cop Derek Chauvin's neck for ten minutes. I will do it for free.

And while I am at it, why can't I (and others-KG), verbalize our wishes for harm to befall Diarrhea Don without a visit from the Secret Service? I feel threatened by his words and actions on a near daily basis. I would be defending myself and I have a right to do so.

I would shed the same number of tears over Putrid Bedbug's demise as he would shed over mine.

4. The video that TMZ obtained from a restaurant on the corner

appears to show there really was not any resistance to arrest. It appears to me like he fell off the curb.

7. Anytime someone denies that white privilege exists, just compare the protest groups.

Heavily armed white people get to march around in public yelling and making nasty comments about an elected official, the governor no less, just because they think they have the right to spread a freaking virus wherever and whenever they want. The police do nothing. Unarmed black people gather to protest the unjustified murder of a black man and the police bombard them with tear gas. Yep, white privilege.

9. There needs to be training of our young people on what to do if they witness or are part of police

brutality. I know one young man was trying to reason with them in the video. I heard you are supposed to ask for the Captain or Chief of police to come and they will. Maybe if multiple people called the police at once telling them several people are filming maybe calling a emergency newspaper number. We just have to do something. I would have needed medical help after witnessing this. Let's do something. The police union also pisses me off. All our other Unions have been weakened not theirs though. And this lawyer the families always get I am sure he is sincere but does he ever win????

10. Being a white dad having to have "the talk" was not something you ever thought you'd be ...

duty bound to have. Good for you, dad. Being a dad is a special calling and your son drew a good 'un.

13. THE TALK belongs to me as well... my wife is Kenyan American and, obviously, didn't grow up

with the type of racism we have in America...

My son is friends with all of his cousins... most of whom are 100% Kenyan, but living in America. I will also probably have to be the uncle that has that talk

My son turns 10 this Summer, but he is a large boy and will probably always be mistaken as older because of height and just being the size of a football lineman...
