    Everyone is talking about this subject outside this forums. Things need to be done to stop brutality against people of color by the police.

    The race conversation was over in the early 70s until Barry the great divider proceeded to spit in the faces of the thousands of Americans that fought, bled, and died for the Civil Rights Movement.

    I'm saying that the people who have been killed, the ones the riots were about, were one and all well-known thugs and criminals being thuggish and criminal at the time the police were trying to arrest or deal with them. The police aren't being brutal: the criminals are being criminal and the police are trying to uphold public order. If blacks stop doing criminal things they won't get targeted. I think they should try that instead of blaming whitey. They want a free pass for being criminal, and I say no to that. That way lies anarchy and violent death for us all.

    Yes. This 12 year old thug had it coming.

    And this guy should have known better than to reach for his license to carry.

    What should be done by people of color about the thousands of people of color killing other people of color.............

    Shitcago has two murders per day on average

    Take a look at who is really killing who

    PS. Kneel, jump up and down or burn the flag, nothing changes

    I don't know if the obtuse question posed in the OP has been answered directly, but here goes, anyway:

    Freedom of expression allows us to voice our most deeply-held concerns in the hope that it will stimulate constructive conversation.

    It doesn't guarantee the stimulation of conversation, of course, especially when others aren't really interested in constructive conversation.

    But for most people, it's the only method they have to at least try.

    Did that really need to be said?

    Well for one religions feed, and teach the poor. What are these football players earning $200,000.00 per hour doing other than kneeling.
