    • What is wrong with you man? Are you oblivious to the systematic racism that prevails in our nation? Where young black men are killed for the crime of being black? Where mothers of black sons have “to have the talk” warning them how to act if stopped by the police. Warning them how to “not get killed”. You saying the same lame excuse that black on black murders somehow justifies these killings. You’re the fool, the uneducated, the racist. You’re part of the problem. BLM is an organization that stands to promote racial justice. They bring to the forefront and help provide a solution to the killing of hundreds of Americans. Just because of the color of their skin. Killed by the very police who pledge to serve and protect our communities.

  1. andrea you a dumb bitch blacks kill each other way more times that at the hands of the police and just so you know more white people are killed by police than any other race. mother should have a talk with there children how to act properly in public and to have all the proper paper work on the vehicle they are operating and to stay seated and obey the officer. also why did the mothers only talk to the boys and not the girls, so you are trying to say that black boys are the thugs in that race, due to not know how behave in pubic.
    blacks don’t kill blacks nigger kill blacks
