George Floyd

I don’t get it....George Floyd could be a felon that is a dead beat dad, who was just released from prison last week and tried to commit armed robbery and then resisted arrest.....none of that would justify what happened to him.....and you think that the crowd that always yells that we have a deep state and a tyrannical government would be up in arms

Police officers in black neighborhoods

I bet that in suburban predominantly white town/neighborhoods the police officer who patrol the area are part of the town and community..they know the people and are their neighbors....they see the people as equals

In predominantly black towns/Neighborhoods regardless if they are rural or urban most cops don’t live there...they drive in from the suburbs, they are outsiders and see themselves that way too...they are probably a cop in that town only until something else opens up in their preferred neighborhood/town...they see the people in the towns they patrol as inferior

I guess my point in that rant was to say that I would like to see more police officers actually live in the towns/neighborhoods they patrol

Conservative logic

Unarmed black men/boys get killed by police or even worse “non police”

Conservatives - they should have cooperated, you have to respect authority

Governors just recommend that people wear face masks to protect themselves and others

Conservatives - I am not surrendering my freedom to authority

Black conservatives

You know the “ain’t blacks”.....Every time they are trotted out on TV, I already know what they are going to say

- I left the Democratic plantation
- I think for myself
- Black people like to be victims
- what about black on black crime
- America is great and isn’t a racist country
- I am not African American, I am American

And my favorite is that “Black people talk about race too much”, even though the only time they are on tv is to make a comment about race.

At a Walmart in Texas

White people out here just arrogant and act like they run the world.....no one in mask, no social distancing....but we suppose to be mad at Biden for calling out black people who vote for trump

You ain't black

1. As a black man, I agree and have said the same thing
2. The only people outraged, or should I say fake outraged are white racists and the “ain’t” blacks, matter fact, a lot of the “ain’t” blacks are the same people who like to say “I am not African American, I am an American”

Trump can't fake empathy

Just listening to this impromptu conference and he mentions that we can’t forget about the people who lost their lives, but it had nothing to do with what he was talking about. It’s like he thought to himself, “let me try and look sympathetic”

Tiffany Trump graduates from law school


Found this part strange

A White House official told CNN Trump has invited his daughter to the White House Wednesday to congratulate her in person

Isn’t that something you would say about non family member?
