Police treat blacks better than whites but we don't complain. We know that the whites who were treated poorly deserved it most of the time

Is burning down your city worth that? It is if you can get some free Nikes out of it!
Wait only 38? The narrative is they're piling the streets with dead black people. Is 38 people really worth making this the #1 issue in the entire black community and arguably all of America?

Then cops need to start popping off on everyone then. If they do it to everyone proportionally, then I guess there's no reason to argue. Would you agree?

And just to reiterate, you'd have nooooo problem with the police blowing your mom away on a routine traffic stop because he felt threatened?

cops get killed and have been killed because they don't take precautions and allow themselves to be put in a get killed situation because they're either too trusting of that person or they're just dumb .. my mother wouldn't be doing the stupid shit these people have done .. you want the cops to be perfect and not hold anyone else accountable .. you have to put yourself in their shoes as well and consider how it's possible for them to get killed .. it's not all about you or I .. it goes both ways

obviously you have dickhead cops who don't need to be anywhere near a police force like the guy who shot walter scott but this is getting out of hand with how folks are vilifying ANY shooting and even going after cops for killing criminals i.e. mike brown etc ..

the big fat guy with the stranded car could've been avoided .. but again, for example, that guy was thinking all about himself .. he didn't consider the cop's point of view and the danger they're in when stopping someone .. wtf did he keep walking to his car and then make some suspicious move ? .. both sides have to cooperate

It's funny CNN airs the Charlotte BLM protests every night but didn't give any airtime to the DNC outside convention protesters, I guess promoting civil unrest is ok but showing Liberals who hate Hillary is unacceptable. Interesting

^cnn was already outed as a propaganda arm of the clinton campaign .. I stopped watching that channel months ago when their bias just got out of control .. I remember they had 1 trump supporter and about 8-9 democrats on a panel during the rnc one night .. only catch clips online now of their anchors, like that fggt lemon, getting smacked around

funny to see that app. statistics prove that whites are being shot more often by police than blacks, although blacks are committing more crimes (proportionally). that just shows that all this BLM is senseless.


here in germany you have to read every day a biased article against Trump and about "racism" in the US. You know what? i wasnt even a Trump supporter a few month ago (Sanders ftw!) but NO NO NO, i just cant stand all those bullshit "pc" articles from left-wing journalists who are living in their romantic multi-cultural phantasy
NO to Hillary! NO NO NO. Yes to Sanders, NO TO HILLARY. I hope some Sanders supporters are waking up early enough to prevent Hillary

at least in the US, you can openly say: I support trump. If you say in Germany: I support the Afd, you will be segregated, you are risking to lose your job.

example? A business man running a catering-service had some schools as his clients. as it came out that he supported the AfD (new conservative party) PUPILS confronted the director of one of those schools to resign the contract with that busness man. The school did so. The other schools followed. The man is now bankrupt.

will trump be a good president? probably not. but still better than hillary. does trump have clean records? hell no, but so doesnt hillary!

trump wont abolish the deomcracy. if he will be as bad as the journalists predict, that dont vote him again in 4 years.

Exactly. The media have become so obvious and shameless with their propaganda that they're pushing people to Trump. But even when this becomes obvious, they still double down with the theatrical hysterics about Trump.
