A senior Trump campaign advisor used her Twitter account Saturday to amplify an encouraging tweet of a video of a Texas man yelling about “**** n———“ as he wielded a chainsaw to chase away anti-racism demonstrators
 

These are the kind of people trump surrounds himself with because that's the kind of person he is too.

CrossFit Company Is Ostracized After Its CEO's Racial Remarks

............Members of the CrossFit community pressured Glassman and the company to issue anti-racist statements in support of Black Lives Matter. Glassman resisted the pressure, calling an affiliate gym owner "delusional" in an email for her suggestion. Then, when the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation tweeted that racism is a "public health issue," Glassman replied, "It's Floyd-19," apparently comparing the death of George Floyd to the coronavirus. Armen Hammer, a popular CrossFit commentator, says the tweet was "incredibly inflammatory, insensitive and thoughtless."...........

More than 1,000 gyms have pledged to stop using the CrossFit name, the sport's top athletes have said they are boycotting the CrossFit Games and companies such as Reebok and Rogue Fitness have decided to stop doing business with the company. Hammer estimates the controversy could cost CrossFit hundreds of millions of dollars in lost revenue. ............

White man mocks protesters in NJ by kneeling on man's neck in viral clip

A viral video reportedly from New Jersey shows a white man mocking protesters taking part in a Black Lives Matter Demonstration by kneeling on a man’s neck on Monday, just weeks after the police killing of George Floyd.

In footage of the moment, which a local NBC station reported took place in Franklin Township, the man could be seen yelling at the group of protesters as he kneeled on another man’s neck on Monday.

Behind both men, footage shows trucks decorated with banners supporting President Trump, a black and white American flag with one blue line, which is often used to express support for the Blue Lives Matter movement and a barrier with a sign reading, “All Lives Matter.”..........

Two men, one of which is a corrections officer, have been suspended from their jobs after they were caught on camera imitating the way in which George Floyd was killed as a counter-protest to a Black Lives Matter demonstration in New Jersey.

JUST IN: @TulsaPolice in Oklahoma say their internal affairs unit is now looking into comments made on a local radio show by a police official who said: based on research “we’re shooting African-Americans about 24% less than we ought to be...”

Another police force ingrained and embedded in racism. Individuals in police forces do not feel this way or make these kind of comments in a vacuum--

They make these comments because they know they are being backed up by pivotal and strategic colleagues, by influential members of their society and by a local, state and / or federal government.

Then when the thing goes public, some official in the police organization is so shocked and offended. If they don't know what's going on in their own organization, they're not doing their job anyway.

Why don't you try telling him that? He's  on Twitter!

See the source image

I see he is still abiding by his pledge to find his wife's killer.  Rumor has it he was an avid golfer.

Like I said. :lol:

 Seems he's talking to himself.  Trying to get back to normal? Guess he's hoping to take another stab at dating.

1) President heads to Dallas today for a fundraiser that's expected to bring in $10 million.
 
2) He'll also meet with business owners, law-enforcement officials and clergy.
 
3) Not invited, however: Dallas’ police chief, sheriff or district attorney - all of whom are black

Looks like trump is going to miss out on the top 3 law enforcement officers in Dallas. I wonder why?

If there's one positive impact Donald Trump has had, he's revealed the true extent of racism in America to millions of white people who otherwise wouldn't have noticed

First you have to admit that you have a problem, before you can solve that problem.

 Here we go again--

According to Twitter, This is a white woman named Lisa Alexander who has been identified on Twitter as the CEO of La Face, a  vegan skin care company.

As a result of her racial harassment of this man of color--

on his own property--

she has lost some contractual business.

It would probably be a lot better for some people simply to mind their own business, especially when they don't know what they're talking about. But it is hard for some Lisas to admit that they could be wrong.

(Touch the Twitter link to watch the video. This racist encounter took place in San Francisco and you can Google/ YouTube to watch it on the local news there.)

Tulsa was the site of the worst racist violence in American history.
 
The president’s speech there on Juneteenth is a message to every Black American:
 
more of the same.
 
-_-

I looked up Juneteenth and it only related to freeing of slaves in Galveston TX.  Slavery was not actually abolished in the US until December 6, 1865 when the 13th Amendment was ratified by Alabama.
