It's great irony. America's expect the crowd to be in discipline when their trained police couldn't even show the discipline to follow country laws about discrimination

As a Minnesota native (and a Minneapolitan for 8 years), this outrage was inevitable and long overdue. It was disgusting to see nothing happened after the murder of Philando Castile and we need a lot of changing, sweeping reforms to ensure the police serve us and not bully neighbors into some sick definition of submission.

What I don’t support is the looting, no matter who’s doing it. A lot of non-corporate places are being damaged, torched or looted and they’re owned by people in the community or people of color. In a city such as Minneapolis, these places (such as the Karem Mall) are hubs for people and immigrants to connect and places to get essentials on the bus line or without driving. Destroy those places and the most vulnerable are left without.

And to think that months ago, in other countries there were also riots, people demanding basic human rights, liberation, etc. It seems like this is the start of a decade of revolution.

proven time and again to not work, how do we fix this deeply rooted problem?

Also please be careful. Department of Justice is waving habeas corpus and Trump has enacted the War Powers so if arrested an individual can be detained indefinitely till the end of pandemic with no rights.

"What message are we sending by destroying what is ours?" is what the woman at the end states. You're right, and the police should feel the same way when this happens when they destroy their community they are sworn to protect.

The cop should be charged with 1st degree murder not third. I watched the video several times. He knew he was killing the man. US citizens may show up with their own weapons like the white folks in michigan who were not tear gassed or fired upon and were allowed to carry weapons into a government building. I am sick of racist mentality.

I grew up in a world, where a girl like me, with my kind of skin, and my kind of hair, was never considered to be beautiful. I think its time that stops today. I want children and black girls to see me, and i want to see their face, reflected on mine

As damaging as these riots may be to store owners, they are neccessary. Coming from a country that is free because of the struggle of people for 100s of years, I understand the importance of riots.

#Blacklivesmatter and we shouldn't stop till protection and proper morals are there in the system for black people. Innocent people getting killed for no reason, this is horrible. It's horrible imagining that you can be killed just for doing basic things everyone does.

But at the same time, the people who are using these riots as an excuse to harm other innocent people should be punished too.

Black wave coming will it hit
I can taste the fear yeah it's written on my lips
Sipping on a cold one waiting for the rinse
Woke up with an omen tatted on my wrist
Black wave coming will it drop
I can see the fear yeah it's written on the wall
Who you gonna trust when the killer is the cop
Fire in my bloodstream, water in my lungs

Waiting on a black wave
Running in a rat maze
Shaking in my own cage
What do I believe? I believe
Waiting on a black wave
Living under bad days
Shaking in my own cage
What do I believe
Stumbling down the street I swear to god you don't wanna test me

Black wave blocking out the sun
Baby when you go down ain't no coming up
Thought that you were safe but nobody ever was
Choking on a diamond, poison in your lungs
At the end guess we're all just animals
At the end is it all just greed
When the ocean crash down who you gonna call
Hold your breath, hold your breath, counting 1 2

Waiting on a black wave
Running in a rat maze
Shaking in my own cage
What do I believe? I believe
Waiting on a black wave
Living under bad days
Shaking in my own cage
What do I believe
Stumbling down the street I swear to god you don't wanna test me

How did a boy like me
End up in a world so mean
