The last true unifying protest was the march on Wall Street. Since then the media has been working very hard the keep us all divided and against each other. Wake up kids. This women is 💯 correct.
But before these idiots can vote I hope they do a little research. Otherwise there will be more leaders like idiot AOC. Go home, and better not vote. These rioters should not be allowed to vote, as they clearly hate the country and its people.

All of this behind high leaders that wants African American people erase. Why and what for? Please stop it. No more murder no more killing kids, it's time to look at the mess that happen in the world.

She is brave, and I salute her service to this nation. And she's right about registering to vote, that's how the Irish in the late 1800s turned their situation around. Use your voice in the voting booths to get people in office who will actually help you

Wears the black protesters, all I see are far leftist DEMOCRATIC morons.
Derek Tomlinson
These so called protesters obviously think that black lives do not matter as they destroy the communities of the hard pressed black and mixed race communities.

When she is encouraging people to vote, I wonder who for. For the people who want to use force to stop these rioters, or for the people who enable and make excuses for them?

This woman is what America needs. No big words or slang, no political correctness or you owe me. Straightforward and intelligent with enough profanity to emphasize her frustration and anger all while still being respectful. And thank you for your service in the military and then in your own community.

Its not enough to be registered to vote its who you vote for that makes the difference. If you vote for the wrong party, regardless of your intentions, you're only making yourself part of the problem. Make informed choices, not choices based on "go with the flow". The correct choice isn't based on color or sexual orientation. You can start with learning the difference between the 2 parties, who are the candidates, what have they done in the past. Talk before election time is cheap. Consider what's important to you, your family, your values. It might really surprise you to find out who was behind the KKK and why, who voted in Jim Crow laws. Who opposed minority federal loans making it very difficult for minorities to start businesses. Research under what presidential administration were more blacks killed by police then all others combined. Hear out what others like you have to say and why they're not voting for your party. Do the research who are the leaders behind BLM. The truth makes a difference.

This is what Democrats WANT for your states. On Monday morning, NBC Chicago reported the total number of shooting victims was over 60 for the weekend, with 16 people dead. The Chicag0 Sun-Times reported one of the weekend's fatalities was a 10-year-old girl who was "inside a Logan Square home on the Northwest Side" when she was shot in the head by a stray bullet. She was shot at 9:40 p.m. Saturday and pronounced dead just hours later. A one-year-old boy riding in the car with his mom was also shot and killed Saturday. He and his mother were driving back from the laundromat when a car pulled up next to them and opened fire. The mother was shot as well, but her wounds were not life-threatening. At least 100 people were shot in Mayor Lightfoot's Chicago last weekend, which was Father's Day Weekend, and 14 of them succumbed to their wounds.
