    Don't exclude the dems just because they do it less. This problem is one of both parties. It's Bill Clinton that ripped into mostly black communities with his abusive policies. It's under Barrack Obama that income inequality has gotten worse than it was under Bush, and that's hitting minorities hardest.

    Irresponsible. How about place the fault where exactly it should be. Bad relationship between blacks and cops. Little trust and understanding.

    Blaming Obama is always an easy game for folks like you. Speak about your inability to see straight.

    Obama deserves some blame honestly. His commenting on cases when he REALLY shouldn't have did nothing but stir things up even worse. The whole "If I had a son, he probably would have attacked a stranger for looking at him and them got shot" nonsense just stoked the flames.

    Now sure, a lot of this is on the media for pushing false narratives and supporting lies like "hands up don't shoot", but they don't deserve all of the blame.

    A question for everyone.

    If you were protesting an unjust police shooting...

    ...what would you steal from the Walmart?

    Far less, but I'm not talking about policies. A policy that is made in general that by effect hurts a community in the inner city is different than what the GOP has done for a very long time now.

    That is they specifically set out to divide the country by race and appeal to some people's fears. This was a strategy by them and thanks to it...well thanks to it is why you see such a differing in opinion on subjects like these. It's not some odd coincidence why most racists are republicans. It's also not a coincidence that black people don't vote for republicans.

    It's also not accurate. I'd be willing to bet that not a single BLM racist is a Republican.

    Eh, I'd show you polls but you don't care about facts so there is no reason to waste my time doing that. Keep believing though that BLM is equal to the KKK though, I'd try to help you out so you wouldn't look foolish in having that opinion but you do you.

    Police are hiding the camera footage of the shooting. The Police chief has admitted that the camera footage doesnt match the Police narrative.

    If you read what some members of CF write you would get the impression that police brutality and high incarceration rates are the only form of "discrimination" black Americans face. You would also get the impression that this "discrimination" arises solely from prejudice among police. As though earning an income WAY LESS than the national average/median has nothing to do with it.

    Police brutality and high incarceration rates are a byproduct of something else. It is almost as if the contrast between the lonely island of poverty that black Americans live on and the vast ocean of material prosperity that surrounds them is not a factor - jobs and freedom be damned!

    Nothing happens in a vacuum, look at Crutcher. A father of 4, now they are without their dad. Conservatives are always going on about fatherless homes, well here is one more to deal with.

    And so that justifies lampooning all persons who want some kind of immigration reform that favors their economics prospects as racists or bigots? BTW, the "fatherless homes" talking point is not reserved for one particular political ideology.

    Have they let them know the cop was white?

    Their assumption was that the cop was white and that the reason for the shooting was racism. That's generally the assumption by racist BLM types any time a black person is shot by police despite the fact that nearly every police shooting in this country ends up being justifiable. It's why you get moronic riots like are going on in Charlotte and like went on in Furguson after that justifiable police shooting. The narrative that cops are all white people and that they are going around murdering black people is just too strong among racist people.

    You seem to miss the point, did you not listen to the video I posted? That's the emotional, racist reaction to what by all accounts is a justifiable shooting of someone who pulled a gun on cops.....of course the racist kid said that it was a book and that there was no gun, but a gun was found and no book was found so....

    Do a better job of following along kiddo. I posted a video of the reaction to the shooting where the kid was saying "All white people are devils" and "All white police officers are devils"......I pointed out that this was the reaction to a black police officer justifiably shooting an armed black man who pulled a gun on him while he was out trying to serve a warrant on someone else, 8 days after a local officer was shot and killed serving warrants.

    I think there are real protesters and those how want to capitalize on what is taking place they just join in a loot and make it look bad for the one's that are fighting for a cause.
