    The elite only want your oil and will dump weapons on you for a civil conflict. And when most of you are dead they will come in and clean up for their agenda. And you will be left as slaves.

    I'm so proud of you and people standing up and not letting capitalism big take their integrity and their dignity. People just want to live and be happy and healthy. And it is time all around the world that young people stand up because you are the future. As cliche as that sounds. And I need to be a global effort to in military tyranny and police brutality in black and brown countries. We need to get together has heads of Nations do And discuss strategies and how we can support each other across oceans. Because just because it's happening across the Atlantic doesn't mean that is not happening in our own backyard. And where there is black and brown people there is brutality against. And sometimes it comes from your own.

    And our police are criticized and our defunded for what they do. This goes to show you how bad it is in other countries. It could be so much worse here. Thank God I live in the US where I'm protected from such violence are protesters do this kind of damage not our police. 😡

    BLMers,,, who are driving the agenda in the West that it's about race, This is black men hurting other black men… If you address the superficial façade, such kind of injustices will appear under another name, some place it's called tribalism, another place its nepotism, sexism, terrorism…
