Also the other 3 cops - none of them were white.  SO that kind of throws the whole racist thing out the window.

That's not true. One of them is Hmong, one is white, and I'm not sure about the third - he has an Asian last name, but he looks mixed race to me. Anyway, are you saying only white people can be racist against blacks? I'm not saying any of them are (or not), but racism goes in all directions.

It IS true.  OR the article on yahoo and msn is lying.  I am not saying anything.  Dang people twist everything. I have said multiple times racism goes in every direction and been attacked multiple times for that statement. Are you saying only blacks get discriminated against?  It goes in every direction. But if you listen to the protestors that is what they seem to be saying.  They are just as racist when they attack a random white person just because they are white.  And that has happened a lot over the past few days.   :(

And FYI I did not get my info from looking at the skin of the 3 men.  I actually READ the article where it told what the races were.  NONE of the 3 are listed as being white.  Only the one that was arrested first.

No, one of them is very clearly white. You can easily find their mugshots online. When did I say only blacks are discriminated against?

Basically it seems that is what you implied. Doesn't matter. Not going to argue. I am not going by the mugshot. I was going by the story on Yahoo. I will see if I can find it and give you the link.  They list the "race" of each one and only the first one arrested is listed as white.

I can say I am proud of where I live.  Blacks and Whites are friendly to each other and not participating in this nonsense.  There is one or two trying to stir up trouble and they are quickly being shut down. No one around here is interested in the crazy going on every where else and we will not let it happen here.  They tried to come in from some where else and do a demonstration.  And a few showed up.  But nobody gave them attention.  So no spot light there is no sense in being here.

I will look for that link so you can see what I am talking about and where I got that from.

I absolutely did not imply anything. I literally stated the opposite:

I'm not saying any of them are (or not), but racism goes in all directions.

I can't watch that video anymore.  It hurts too much.  I feel awful on how this man was murdered. His children  will be without a Dad.

It doesnt matter who UR or where U live.Time and unforseen occurrence befalls everyone.

You think when Adam Lanza blew away 26 kids and teachers 7 yrs ago they expected that to happen?

And many other examples.Eden doesnt exist yet in this Satanic world.

I read somewhere that George Floyd had passed a phony 20 dollar bill, not that he wrote a counterfeit check. But whatever it is he did, it was a minor incident over 20 dollars that caused him to lose his life. Just awful. He had already done his time for prior arrests.

He used a counterfeit $20 to buy cigarettes. He was confronted and asked to give the cigarettes back. He refused. So the clerk called the police.  One thing that does not make sense is supposedly the clerk said the ink was still running on the fake money.  If that is true why did she not refuse it to start with? Why did she take it and wait til he was outside and then go and ask for the cigarettes back?  I have worked retail and we had to check money when it was handed to us.  Not after they went outside. And we were also told not to ever go outside after someone.

You are right in that he had done the time for the past crimes but that is going to be brought up. Just like everything else in anyone's past is brought up again and again.

The other "White" police officer, Thomas Lane, was a rookie cop that was on something like his 4th shift as a full fledged cop.

>told Chauvin to stop - twice
>volunteered to help Somali refugee youth
>tutored inner city black children
>gave Floyd CPR

The other officer, "Kueng is a black man who grew up in north Minneapolis with a single mom who adopted four at-risk children from the community"


Not everything is because of Racism... sometimes it's just bad cops & really bad police standards/regulations within the inner working of the police department itself.  I'm not for defunding the police, but I am definitely for restructuring & periodic mental health assessments - hopefully that is included.

If Lane told Chauvin to stop twice i would think that would go a long way.Even tho now im sure Lane wished he belted him off.

I feel for George Floyd as well, he shouldn't have had to die the way he did. BUT, lets not forget that he held a gun to a pregnant woman's stomach so that he and his thugs could rob her house. I wouldn't put him up on a pedestal either.
