    Shame she didnt use that platform to talk more about unity...and the the roots of the problems of racisim in this country...the jokes..the resentment it all needs to stop...the new generation will over power the hate from the old..we just have to recognize our ability to do so...a white person was killed by another...RIP

    Well when you go to someone else's protest without the proper permit to counter protest and someone in your group starts physically attacking the protesters with a permit and they start defending themselves and trying to leave shit like this happens... Y'all were there illegally without a permit, you fight for equality but yet don't respect another groups equal rights to protest... Should have just respected their equal rights like you want so bad and keep your bitch ass at home and none of this shit would have happened

    "Find what's wrong, don't ignore it. Don't look the other way. Make a point to look at it..." But let's remove a statue so I don't have to look at it.

    I loved her message, but it's irritating me that they didn't lower the mic for her.

    Wow. This woman is AMAZING! She raised her child right. What a loss for mankind. I love that she is using this opportunity as a teachable moment. Instead of being lost in grief, hate, and anger, she channels her energy as a call to action for others to not stand idly by while they witness injustices around them. Do something! Thank you for this message. ❤️❤️

    If my child was killed there's no way I'd be able to speak and not bawl my eyes out. Stronger woman than I am.
