    Take a good look at people like this, America. They are the “new” Democratic Party and they are destroying our beautiful country, with their rhetoric, by rioting, by looting and by infiltrating the minds of those they can control! We are going to be the next Venezuela if we, as a country, do not wake up!

    Blacks are being used by Democrats. And, as I have said many times George Soros said he would take America down, and he would do so by using Blacks, because they are “so easily manipulated”.

    African American’s are being misled and used. Pretty sad really. I keep looking for a leader to step up and put this all in perspective and bring to light the fraud in BLM. Come back to my old saying, “Stupidity is fatal”, “Ignorance can be corrected”.

    You do know that BLM is a political arm of the Democratic Party and don’t care one iota about people of color. Those blacks that are running around protesting are more interested in superiority than black lives. The whole notion that “black lives matters” without including “all lives” is on it’s face EXTREMELY SELFISH! Sadly the corrupt media has SOLD the notion that BLM is a good thing. I don’t support that notion or buy into that evil movement.

    Homo sapiens know how to hate. They’re also really good at opening up a can of whoop ass. There are minor differences in Homo sapiens from around the world. But make no mistake. Homo sapiens are the world’s top predator. Par excellence. This guy’s a goof. If this story is to be believed than he probably wears one of those goofy hats. Or he just another huffer on the loose with his ding dong bells jingling all the way.

    Make no mistake, what Mr. Shelton did was stupid and illegal, but why does our legal system work so well at pinching somebody like him, when Black-on-White crime is rampant and 50 times more common? You seldom hear about the bruthahs getting popped for race-crime shit.

      You are so full of shit. Do you have any statistics other than what you make up to prove your racist claims?

        YOU..do not have the guts to look up the actual FBI crime statistics. It’s easier to just call me a racist.

        I wish I was wrong and you were right, because that would be a safer world for our grandkids, but it’s just not like that.

            ha ha You DO NOT have the guts to look up the FBI stats and come back on here and tell me how wrong I am, because the stats are not going to support your dishonest race-baiting.

            Thank you, it’s about time someone called out the race baiter. She is so stupid she never looks at T.V. and see’s all the crime and vandalism being done by blacks all across the nation. It is time would stood up and say enough and take steps to show we mean it.
