Geek X says:

It's funny that from a scientific standpoint, White is the amalgamation of all colours and yet they behave like they are colourless. Black is the absence of colour, and the call Black people coloured. If this doesn't prove that racial segregation by colour is based on nothing but lies, then I don't know what will.

Honey bee Warrior says:

I like it they unite together for the anthem and kneel to show another form of unification.America great nation!

Diba says:

There is a DISTINCT difference between African/Black People & POC, LeBron James knows that full well.

They are so fake. The NBA is helping run basketball academies in China where children were regularly abused by coaches and staff members at government-run facilities, as reported just this week. Not to mention all that Nike gear being produced by Chinese slave workers. Privileged men who turn a blind eye to the slaves that make their clothes.

Andy Vidito says:

Why are women and young men sexually assaulted in Egypt and Saudi Arabia .but nothing is done ? It's the same in Canada .dirty secret .everyone knows but no one does anything .

400 years of oppression is coming to the world's stage and the supremacist hate that

Audrey Lxa says:

Fake news. The war against Americans and humanity is being sponsored by China. Use hydroxychloroquine and zinc to prevent infection and for early treatment. 400mg and 50mg per day for 5 days. The combo works.

C. Lincoln says:

Its easy to take a knee against racism …. after the mainstream media made it okay, and millions of black and white people went to protest in the streets for weeks/months. It takes courage to do it BEFORE the media and everyone else is doing it. Respect to Colin Kaepernick.

Fight For Freedom says:

the Christian US and EUROPE colonialism terror has a history of wars deaveasting lives of millions of people around the globe.
