    We all have seen the racism in this country with Trump. Of course I knew there was racism I had know Idea how widespread it was.

    Our military is a racist organization where the good old boys network has created glass ceilings at all levels to promote their own.

    Tony Grinston’s my hero. He governed his emotions exponentially better than I Ever would have! Thank God for a praying mother!! I’ve known him since the sixth grade, & I can tell you, he’s a driven machine. If you’re Not careful, he’ll make you better!🇺🇸⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    The only race we should be concerned with is the Human Race! I thank all members and veterans of the military for your service.

    We need the Good Cops.

    We need legislation to charge, fine and arrest “Karen and Other’s alike,” who weaponized
    our Good Police against Black Americans. Enough!

    We do not
    need to defund the police. They already have a training budget. Use it
    correctly. There’s no need to incentivize an already fully funded FOP.

    Do you really hear us?

    That moment when the black soldier is bounding Iraq/poc on behalf of white supremacy and he isn’t even accepted by the very white supremacy he’s killing for!

    It is essential to tell our stories about racism in how the attitudes and actions today reflect centuries of bias and bigotry in America. Our stories whether we are in military or we are civilians are similar because racism is not a regional problem, not based on political party affiliation; it is a people issue. Racial perspectives about how we view and value another race are based on the intergenerational values we respectively inherit from our ancestors.

    And then a member of the Air Force shot a bunch of cops. Great job, leaders. Your subordinates recieved the message loud and clear.

    Everyone is prejudice, when we have 60% brown people, and 20% white people will racism end? of course not, just the script will change…the new slogan will be White Lives Matter…

    Who would have thought, Sergeant Major Michael Grinston would be able to express how interracial kids feel, so he is a perfect candidate to talke about the tug of war that mixed kids feel! Everyone is mixed to various degrees!

    I'm more curious why this statment wasnt made for David Dorn, a man who was killed defending the public? Yes, George Floyd's death was tragic, but there is no proof that it was because of racism.. He was a criminal, drug addict and held a gun to the stomach of a pregnant woman to rob her, yet we build shrines to him… David Dorn served the community as a police officer for 30 years and was killed for a TV because of the riots influenced by Floyd. We should be mourning both, but I feel the wrong shrines are being built. Have we even heard Dorn's name in the news? No! Because that doesnt matter any more to people, we only care about the most popular… What a shame.
