    Now the so called good white folks can experience what black folks has been dealing with ever since we set eyes on them..When whites get brutalized by law enforcement, there’s sharp outcry of police brutality, when blacks get beatup, we’re told we did something wrong, and had it coming to us..

    so called good black folks cheered and alerted criminals the police were coming when black folks were beating a white person to death in a mcdonalds, talk about a double standard al sharpton. crime happens in all color and among authority as well, welcome to the world. you should at least comprehend things before the race card is thrown out there, the alleged victims were both black and white as a black lady is clearly having her hair pulled by the police then the white lady intervenes and gets donkey punched. it’s a police brutality issue, not race.. but so called race mongers think otherwise, as always.
