    Yep, see my comment to Reeko. Not a damn word. There were plenty tragedies and brutalities that weren’t mentioned. Sad

    u hear about events like this massacre and tragedies like the Red Summer of 1919 and it’s just like, wow, there’s so many really fcked up things that just don’t even get mentioned in school

    back then for African Americans to overcome everything and become so successful that they’ve created a place known as Black Wall Street...an opportunity to create wealth that can be passed down to future generations, and it all gets destroyed by racists...parents and children killed, children orphaned...homes, businesses and livelihoods destroyed

    Everytime you think Westbrook turns a corner on leadership, next move is a distraction.

    I knew Westbrook would come from left field with something un-related to ball. Durant is still winning!

    Look at you, You can repeat the same BS lies the media and other idiots feed you. Sheep. You have zero clue what you are talking about. First things first Obama was the biggest failure of a president in history. This country got bad under his presidency. Funny because these same polls you believe saying he has a high disapproval are from the same idiots who didnt think he would win and here we are. The Democrats been crying and making up lies to get him out since and In November you guys going be crying again for another 4 years and You seriously cant blame him for this health issue. You know its China we all know its China. An economic depression? Cant blame him for that either. That again was the China virus and these Democrats over doing lockdowns. When proof has shown that was more damaging then the actual virus. But Trump is the right man to bring this country back. He gave is a great booming economy before the virus and will bring our economy back again. It's already on the way back. You guys just have so blind with so much TDS that you cant see anything for yourself you just repeat the same stuff the media feeds you. I actually feel sorry for you guys to be so naive.

    I am sorry for your country, you can only vote 2 big parties who cock block each other permanently.

    The race problem will always stay.

    And 1 commander in chief who either takes the fall or is the hero.

    That's some monotonous BS disguised as the best democracy in the world.

    Who gets up at 5:24 in the morning just to prime us for that day's version of Fox News? This is some dedication.

    i've always liked history and had never heard of this until Watchmen. and even then i wasn't completely sure it wasn't just part of the show's alternate history. pretty unbelievable to not be taught about it. shows you how racism wasn't just a passive system of "you're not allowed to do that" but an active system of "oh, you managed to do that, well we're going to destroy it".

    Westbrook needs to save the documentaries for retirement.

    Jordan brand has suffered under Westbrook. Paul George and Durant had separate themselves from any and all clout chasers including Westbrook.

    I never heard of it either, and I like history too. I'm not a buff, but I like it. My first exposure was the Watchmen.
