    That's not a fair statement to make. I think that what was done is horrible and that there should be a punishment worse than firing for these officers, but we're not all racists.

    Stop being upset and make change happen. Create a facebook group or page to make this issue known. You can't change anything if you don't start something.

    Excuse me but my opinion is very fair here and I have every right to express how I feel in the case. My race has to put up with racism since slavery times and nothing has changed. So don't tell me not to get upset with this.

    So, I'm just going to point out here that you, a white woman, are telling a black man if he doesn't like the way people have treated his people for centuries, that if he doesn't like it, just to change it?

    I understand your sentiment probably came from a good place, but I just want you to stop for a moment and check your privilege. If Bart could "just change it", don't you think thousands of other people would have done this already?

    Racism is a systemic problem and he has every right to be angry about this. One person making a facebook page isn't going to solve centuries-long systemic racism.

    the change must come from a whole people,and a whole nation,the oppression must die and justice must be shown to not play favorites but to be applied to all,just as the potus is not exempt from the full weight of law for his deeds,and police MUST be held accountable for their acts,to the full measure of conviction

    Yes, and at 10 years of age, living in Detroit, I watched Detroit burn in rioting. Detroit is just now beginning to recover.

    I echo: why have we learned nothing?

    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    I'm not saying that you can't be upset. But I don't think it is fair to call the entire U.S. racist when we are not. And I'm sorry but your race is not the only race that has been slaves. I'm not going to argue with you if you can't at least look at things from another person's view and not get mad at someone for their opinion.

    I would kind of like to revisit this statement about the USA being racist. It seems like this was taken personally, and that’s really not the point that I got from this statement.

    I don’t want to interpret for Bartmanhomer, but I would definitely say that this is something that’s part of our culture. So that’s not a crazy statement in my view.

    If you want to be thought intelligent, just agree with everyone.
