Charlottesville

Vigils were held all over the country for the victims of the violent 'Unite the Right' rally in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, Aug. 12. The KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacist groups assembled at Lee Park on Saturday to protest the planned removal of the Gen. Robert E. Lee confederate statue.

Heather Heyer, 32, was killed and 19 people, including Marcus Martin (pictured above), were injured when James Alex Fields Jr, 20, drove his Dodge Challenger muscle car into a crowd of antifascist (Antifa) counter-protesters who were bused to the rally armed with sticks, chains and bottles of urine.

Martin, 26, suffered a broken leg when he was sent airborne after the car plowed into the crowd.

    Whoa ?

  • Kilroy

    This world is imploding. A lot of BS is bubbling to the surface thanks to tRump. And he can't part his puny lips to check the cowards that were protesting the monument's removal but he criticizes everyone else by name.
    Feels like trump has been in office eight years and it hasn't been eight months.

  • Rayne

    I saw the video and I still cringing. So sad

  • Kilroy

    I've seen this pic many times and I'm just noticing bruh' ankle is twisted as he is flying. SMH

  • Yardgirl

    RIP to the innocent victim. Trump has given
    these racists a voice and by refusing to call them out by name, he is consigning their actions.

  • Shay

    so, let me get this right....you arrest a brown man who is unarmed and the racist pigs with rifles were not arrested? I guess thats fair? gtfoh

  • Yardgirl

    OMG I just saw that!! You can see the break!!?

  • JerseyMom

    It is not worth removing confederate statutes. We Black folks should focus more on fair credit reporting, entrepreneurship l, multiple streams of income, e small business loans, lines of credit, student loan forgiveness, reasonable mortgage modification, supporting Black-owned business and banks and other wealth generating vehicles.

    F*** these symbolic gesters of combating racism that don't put money in our bank accounts.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    When we had the murders at that black church in South Caroline, we remember Barack Obama attended that pastor's funeral. I'm willing to bet Trump wont be attending Heather Heyer's funeral, nor sending his condolences in this case.
    1/ He really doesn't care much about racism 2/ He doesn't want to alienate the white nationalists 3/ Even if he did send his condolences, it wouldn't seem sincere, since he has no credibility on racial issues anyway.

    He is not will say white supremacist. Nope

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    He just said it I'm sure they had to tell him a few times for him to get it right.

  • Evillene

    Trump is 100% responsible for the violence that caused the death of this young woman and injured others. I want the nazi scum to continue to invoke Trump as their leader and inspiration. I want them to make it plain that he is the reason they have taken to the streets and believe their depraved message of hate should be heard. And Trump needs to continue his ambivalence. Trump knows his presidency RELIES on the support of violent white supremacist scum.

    All but the very dumbest of the pro-Trump c00ns need to know that Trump doesnt give a f*ck about them or improving their lives and wouldn't care if they died under the wheel of some redneck's pickup truck.

  • JerseyMom

    It just pisses off the whiggers and unnecessarily gets folks injured or killed like on Saturday.

    Let them fools have their statutes and flags as long as they are not bothering anyone.

    LOVE IT!

  • You Could Never

    From downstairs on the earlier charlottesville post about blacks should be worried about more and we only pick narratives that suit us and then to come in here and see the same SHIT REPEATED...please let it be noted that It was YPEEPO that suggested the statue come down FIRST. Do your damn homework instead of downing your own.

    "At a talk given by the author and historian Edward Ayers, a Charlottesville city councilor, Kristin Szakos, asked about the city’s Confederate monuments. She wondered whether the city should discuss removing them.

    People around her gasped. “You would have thought I had asked if it was O.K. to torture puppies,” she recalled during a 2013 conversation on BackStory, a podcast supported by the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities.

    The response to her comment was heated, and swift. Ms. Szakos said she received threats via phone and email. “I felt like I had put a stick in the ground, and kind of ugly stuff bubbled up from it,” she said."

  • Elevated Soul

    I'm glad brotha-man is okay but I just wonder if all these people "slow singing and flower bringing were as sad when the Republican law makers were shot by the hateful left wing loon?

    Anti-Fa had no business there.Anti-Fa is like a corporation. The SJW's are on Soro's payroll.

  • You Could Never

    so damn quick to say blacks need to be worried about xyz.

    Well living in VA, I can say it DOES bother us. Living in a black neighborhood & having a white person move in and hang a giant confederate flag over the garage bothers us. We know what it stands for and naw Im not ignoring it. Remove all that shit.

  • Evillene

    Those are all examples of white folks welfare. Don't go looking for handouts.

    Reduce your credit load and pay your bills on time and your credit score will improve. Don't buy a house you can't afford and you won't need a mortgage modification. Don't borrow student loans in pursuit of a degree that will not lead to a career that will enable you to repay student loans.

    Black entrepreneurs need to step up with businesses that provide quality, competent service. Do not take black patronage for granted. Black people need to try harder to find, build-up and patronize black-owned business. Bank with financial institutions that invest in the black community.

    In other words, be black but act like you're Jewish.

  • SDot

    I loathe this situation, Trump and Pence.

    TO HELL ALL OF THEM!

  • Hmmm~?

    It's not. People marching and protesting racism is not going to change anything. These people are beating a horse that died several decades ago. Like OP said, let's focus on things that are feasible and we can actually do something about. I'm tired of this race war mess.

  • Harley

    hes an idiot. People can pick what they choose to be passionate about. Just because someone is passionate about breast cancer does not mean they have to be passionate about prostate cancer. It is his way to deflect... and its sad. What is he doing to promote peace or aid his community besides judging others?

    All 45 has done is bring out the worst in racists that were already saying the nicca behind closed doors. I dont know if Imma be able to take four years of this. By the time that azzhole is finished Hawaii gonna be the only state left thats not in turmoil. What happened to HOPE...In 2008 when Our President Barack Obama got elected there were people in the streets all different races, sizes and backgrounds hugging each other crying. On 9/11 when those towers fell everybody was drying each others tears regardless of race. What happened to that America? Why are we so prone to hate now and love only the ones who look like us? Im sick of this madness...

  • YellowSauce

    I just want to know when amerikka was EVER great ??? .....

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    If only removal of the Statue could magically reverse time and convict the Police Officers killing black people unjustly. Or punish the individuals who were a part of a young black women being stripped naked and cavity searched on a public street. If only the removal of this statue and other monuments like it, could produce an airborne gas, that would settle on the racist and the bigots and make them the complete opposite after they inhale it. ...If only one more "PEACEFUL" protest would have us waking up to everything and everyone in sync with unity and peace for all beings...BUT it wont.

    All I know is that when the KKK or other radical groups plans to march, I sit my azz at home. I'm not about dodging rubber bullets and running from tear gas. Not me. I can't change anything. Let the racist live in their racist worlds. There are no laws to back their behavior like in 1960s. All they can do is hold rallies...that I can easily ignore. I suggest others do the same and stay safe.

  • Real Greasy

    America has lone states that are embedded with hateful ppl of pink skin such as Virginia... their laws date back to the 1700's... their justice dates back to the 1700's..... their Klan dates back to the 1700's.... I have a female friend who was doing 80mph on the I-95 and went back down there on her court date... the judge was fishing at a pond while she waited in court and came in after lunch and asked her where is your lawyer at.... she states I didn't know that I need a lawyer for a speeding ticket.. he states well you drove all the way from New York city without a lawyer plus interrupted my peaceful fishing... he gave her behind 5 months and a 2500 fine...wrong color wrong State same year...(1700's)

    Right. Because racists didn't exist before Trump was elected.

This think tank inspired thing to turn lies into truth thru repetition has many on board for pure financial gain...looking foolish because wealth and the ability to lie logically aren't proportional.
