    Before I start calling this a justified killing like some(one) -- any one have a link to the dash cam video?

    What? No. The GOP party has its problem with race not because of policy issues but because of how they run their campaigns and who they look to appeal to. It is their rhetoric that is and has always been the problem, they will never sell issues like immigration to black people because most black people legitimately feel like the Republican party plainly doesn't like them.

    Now, I know the retort to this is "That's not true because...." it is true, because we are talking about emotions here. When a candidate runs they want to be likable right? Well this is an emotional thing and when most black people watch conservative media they don't hear many positive things said about them, it's always belittling and scolding, and some of it...some of the things guys like Bill'O or Limbaugh have said is flat out racist. Some of the things GOP representatives have said are flat out racist. That really doesn't help.

    It is perception and that perception from most black people is that the GOP just has 0 empathy for them and doesn't care at all about listening to them as voters. With the whole voting ID thing it looks like they are still in that mindset of not trying at all to make an appeal.

    This. Obama has taken steps to worsen race relations. Just look at the senseless violence that exists over this today.

    Not talking about that one video i'm speaking about the police killing instead of doing there job of
    Deescalating the situation they are killing people. If you get your head out of your butt you would be able to follow what is really going on.As for Blaming President Obama it's always is easy for folks like you to point the blame at him but remember he is the only President in recent year to have the ball to talk about color.

    Apparently the police haven't shown anyone the video. Even the mayor of Charlotte hasn't seen it. That seems very suspicious.

    Help me understand how boycotting white businesses after a black policeman shoots a black man makes any sense. Or, given that, who the riots are actually against?

    The rioters/protesters are a group of racists, why would you expect anything they do to make sense?

    Easy call: they are not protesting White Cops. they are protesting the shooting act itself.

    THey are protesting the shooting act by beating white people in parking lots and breaking people's property? Certainly sounds way more racially motivated then what you are saying. You would protest the shooting by going in front of a police station and demanding the cop be fired/arrested

    I will wait until we are 100% know the truth before forming an opinion on this particular incident but up to this point the truth has been 100% against the BLM lies which are fostered by our idiot president and the media.. #Letthetruthcomeout.

    How hysterical- you're against forming an opinion but then form a ridiculous opinion? Pathetic.

    What's true is that some people are protesting the shooting act, some people are protesting racism by the police force (even though it doesn't exist in this situation, in a way), and some people just want to start some **** and use this as a reason to loot.

    The question is: what percentage of each? Because you know there's a mix of all 3 groups in there.

    Are they? Then why the call to boycott white businesses (which preceded the riots, and probably had something to do with them starting)?

    The riots in Charlotte are due to a black officer rightfully shooting a felon who pulled a gun on him.....and they are attacking white people and since the start had people claiming that "white people are the devil".....That's probably why I think they are just racist assholes. You know, because they are just racist assholes.
