    I saw a young black man with Jamaica and Ghana roots coming to our neighborhood to cut trees. Polite with heavy accent. Has his own business with his brother. Nice pickup truck filled with tree stump. Busy on the work with no time pandering on the street like some others. Respect.

    Hey NBC, when are you going to start reporting real news like about what happened to SEAL TEAM 6? Im not on social media and I'm an independent voter, but somehow I heard about that story 3 days ago. Isn't it your job to inform me and not vice versa?

    🧐… No. If I give my business to anyone it won't have anything to do with a person's skin color, sexual orientation, etc. Why? Because that would be a form of racism and/or discrimination. Equality means not seeing color or gender. Treat everyone the same because we are all human.

    Saying it’s a trend or a tick mark, checked off is just drawing on assumptions… Historically I see why that’s said but CoVid is making $$ scarce for a lot of folks…. just sayn’

    What about Twitter censoring people's DM's?

    What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Antifa/blm doesn't care that businesses are black owned when they are rampaging through a city burning and looting.

    Not a fan of most black cultural things such as music or fashion, but that doesn't mean that I should disrespect their culture or denigrate a person because of the colour of their skin.

    For anyone scrolling through the comments going through a really hard time I truly hope things get better for you no matter who you are. Please don't give up trying. There is a reason you are here reading this message, to remind you that YOU are so important to God and His Son Jesus Christ. I can only imagine what you are going through but God knows. I also know how difficult life can be and I may not understand your exact experience but I am truly sorry that things have been so tough for you. I care and want you to know that you are not alone, you have a purpose, you are worthy of so much. Please take it one day at a time, one step at a time. I am praying that God will send His angels to each and everyone of you to comfort you, surround you with His love, give you peace beyond measure, and to change things for the better. Please know that you are here for a reason and that sometimes we don't always know why we go through things, maybe to help someone else going through the same thing because you understand such pain that someone else may not. Please also know you also have a Savior Jesus Christ who died for you, He loves you more than you could ever know. Please ask Him for forgiveness of wrongs and ask Him into your heart believing with sincerity. He can guide you in all things. I speak from experience it doesn't matter what we have done or that we think we don't measure up He will meet us where we are, even in our lowest low. He can give you peace beyond measure, I speak from experience. I can only imagine how hard it has been for you but I truly hope the best is yet to come for all of you. Please never give up, because He won't give up on us. Please remember this when things are hard and you feel at the end of your rope

    BLM is a Marxist organization and has ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

    There were quite a lot more black owned businesses before white liberals burned down entire districts in majority black cities. Some things never change..

    Jesus forgives and delivers from sin. We must be willing to repent.

    As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
    Revelation:3:19
    Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
    Revelation:3:20

    Yes black lives matter the statement is true but the black lives matter agenda and organization is a farce & If you don't believe me you need to research!
    Just go look at all of their websites (with many chapters) and take a look where the money goes. #Blacklivesmatter will be summoned again 2 do the RADICAL LEFT'S DIRTY WORK….being used !!
