Liverpool forming eyes service as if they care about Floyd's death and racism, if there is one club in England that keep supporting racism it is Liverpool...................
Liverpool players, Management board and fans all wore T-SHIRT to support Suarez when he racially abuse Evra............ And again Liverpool football club all supported Suarez again when he bite Ivanovich through their Tweeter, despite opposition from everyone else

Liverpool is a filthy scum dirty club, always forming eye service and playing victim card, when they themselves are the real oppressor.
they've since apologised for the racist stuff. As for that bite, Lfc actually fined him. What did u expect them to do? They can't fire him or bench him while his c0ntract ran out. Na them go lo0se as he was a top player then and Liverpool needed him to win games to stay financially fit. Plus, they have this principle of being supportive of their employees rather than throw them under the bus.

As for the protest in America is good oooooo,. BUT it is a good protest at a very wrong time. Here are my reasons;

1) over thousand and millions of people have gather in America and other parts of the world to protest,,,, have we even realize that this is a pandemic period that we should be isolating.......... Because of Floyd's death, I can see more than 500,000 covid infection and more than50,000 people dying due to Corona virus infection within the crowd..... Democrat and CNN will not talk about this repercussion, they want to blame everything on Trump.
U wouldn't see the WHO coming out to warn the people about the dangers of large gathering and protesting world wide at this dangerous times of covid19 ............................. Also i feel that state governors in USA and other world leaders like in Canada, Britain etc purposely exposed their people to contact more covid infection and death, by standby and watch while the people gather in large number. Whatever evil intension those leaders have, right it is only God that can serve those mass protesters....... This action alone can bring about second wave of the virus which will be fatal

2) the world is under great economics depression and in America alone there are 50million job losses, ... The protesters who are vandalising and burning down businesses all in the name of protest and are being encouraged by CNN and Democrat governors, have they realize that this rascal behavior will lead to more recession and job lose for innocent citizen........ I know they want to blame everything on Trump.

3) the whole thing has turned political through CNN and action of Democrat governors.
First, it was about impeachment of trump, they failed.

Then come Corona virus, .....instead of the press to tackle china and WHO for the spread of Corona virus in the world, the press world wide were tackling Trump as if Trump is the president of the world and as if Trump was the one that brought the virus to the world...... In Democrat state like new York, governors freely allow the people to get infected, so as to blame Trump for the numbers of the dead, the media we're insulting the president up and down with stupid questions during presidential press briefing....,.over 100,000 Americans have died mostly in Democrat state.. again they have failed because U.S have done x10 more tests than any country, more ventilator and PPE than any country........ CNN have realized that people are no longer buying the lying stories about Trump, so if you observed, they no longer report on covid stories gain, they have now shifted their attention to racism....

thank God Trump has taken U.S out of WHO.
Let me see how China will fund WHO.

What police did was wrong, and the policemen were duly sacked, arrested and charged with murder, ..... But the press and CNN chooses to feed on the story, encouraging voilent protest and destruction of public/private properties....
The Democrat state governors and states police chooses to standby and watch public properties going up in flame without taking any action to stop the vandalism....... And when Trump condemned their weakness and conspiracy, they begin to criticized him...... To an extent that CNN decide to send a black reporter on a Frontline between police and riot protesters, when the reporter was arrested for endangering his own security (he could be hit by stray bullet bottle, stone, fireworks etc) they changed the narrative to racism.

Finally Trump is not perfect oooooo, infact he can't talk as a president, he is so unpolished in his act, but believe me Democrat, press and other world leaders are trying to destroy Mr Trump, using the poor masses as collateral damages.

If there is one thing I know, Trump really care for Americans but doesn't give a shit about outside world,... Americans should indeed appreciate their president because he loves them.

Trump is the most insulted president in the world, even a small boy like mark Zuckerberg, get the guts (mind) to remove a presidential address to the nation on Tweeter......... That is the highest level of disrespect to the office of the president of United States of America.............. If I were Trump Zuckerberg would have paid heavily for every bit of that disrespect.... Zuckerberg would have stayed alive and watch helplessly as his billions becomes thousands.

Even a Chinese jornalist get mine to ask Trump a very stupid question about trump Corona virus competition, ..... a question that even she dare not ask Chinese president xie.

It was so disgusting to watch a police inspector yesterday on CNN telling a whole US president (Mr Trump) that if he does not have anything to say "HE SHOULD SHUT UP"... simply because Trump criticized them for allowing vandalism to take place.......... ..I am not sure any president in the world would have taken this lightly from a public official.....he wasn't even warn by CNN to at least respect office that Trump occupied.

CNN has loose all credibility, they have shown that they are media wing of Democrat party by reporting loop sided stories. E.g when the protesters were disperse at White House so that Trump could have access to the vandalized St John's Church... the media says that the protesters were peaceful, but the question is if the protesters were peaceful, why was that church vandalized in the first place........... there is a lot of cover up in the media so as to carried out their evil intension of misinforming the world.

Honestly I must commend the endurance of Mr Trump, u really try to endure them

Black community should be very careful in this crises, they start on a positive note ..... But when the going get bad and urgly, they (black) will be blamed for everything that happened. Nobody will mention the white, Chinese, Hispanics or other ethnic groups

Yet, the American president insinuated that Colin Kaepernick (and other players who took a knee in protest of Black lives being killed) are not patriots for protesting agains injustice.

redcliff:


a white person maybe, but another black person, them go shoot am.. infact the matter would be turned around that what it is now, most likely floyd would not have died and police for charge that other person with obstruction, and it wont get this media hype it has now and people would blame the rescuer and say why would he have the audacity to obstruct police work that the police were doing their job..

oga, no be defense at all. Human life is bigger than anything. Fr0m the camera angles, it's obvious there were lots of people around. Rather than film this while a man died, they should have g0ne to rescue him. Raise alarm to people to c0me help.

I just wonder what goes through that officer's mind when he sees the chaos and pains he's stupid action has caused
the same thing that goes through the mind of an average Yoruba man even after joining Hausa-Fulanis to fight Igbos and through Awolowo killed 3million Igbo children. Go and ask them if they ever feel bad or remorseful for their evillages acts.


Evil people remain stoned hearted even after committing their evil plans, they always find one or two reasons to justify their evil deeds just as Hausa-Fulanis and Yorubas always have reasons to hate, kill and marginalise the blessed Igbo race, it will never be forever. White folks also thought they will enslave blacks forever but today the case is different. Igbos once dominated the Nigerian federal politics in the 60s but today it's different, so we shall see angry

Floyd was simply submissive regardless...
No.
Look closer in that video.
You could see that he was trying to remove his neck from under the officer's knee.
When a 220lb man puts his knee on your neck, while 2 officers hold you down, and you are handcuffed, there is not much you can do.

This isn't the usual play-play hold that young boys do.

They are grown men ffs.
Trained to perform restraint and you said he was submissive and smiling?!
Where did you see that in the video??
I still don't know how you came to that conclusion. What??

Seems you didn't watch the video. People tried talking that were blocked off by the Asian officer.. a black can't approach he will be shot .

well , it's unusual for me to pass judgement on people as i'm definitely not perfect but i must say this type of coldblooded murder gets me feeling like this . i mean you kill a man and he is gone forever , like you don't care which side of eternity you're sending him to . and if there was no camera . . . . . imagine the effing demon living among us like humans , just look at those sons of jackals shooting a guy dead i n the bush at ikorodu that was posted last week , recall the savagery and bloodthirstiness that unfolded in Aluu some years back ! man , indeed is capable of all evil .

Just my thoughts, the guy lied too low, no body movements at all like as if his legs were chained or something. no struggle no anything, and it was only one officer that pinned him down. anyways God knows why. RIP to him.
No.
There were 3 of them and he was handcuffed as well.
You didn't watch the video.

You guys keep coming up with this shii.
Have you been held down by 3 grown men before??
Not the usual play-play hold that young boys do.
Coupled with that, they are officers of the law trained to restrain.

He was hooked!

The man on his neck alone is most likely 220lbs and above.

I guess you didn’t see the real viral video of the said cop kneeling in George Floyd’s neck and he was helpless and immobile, begging and pleading so he could breathe.


i also am sure you have not seen where police want to please/stroke their almighty than thou Self!

Normal Liverpool way, ....... Always trying to use the death of an innocent black man to shine. As if they care!....... racist club.
During memorial moment in a match, U will see them forming fake one minute silent and clapping as if they are more dedicated than others,...
But when it comes to paying their poor staff to help sustain them through pandemic times, they(Liverpool) want to furlough the entire club. Nonsense

If the black community in USA ask for funding to help them push this racism fight, believe me Liverpool will not contribute a penny, they will run away............ instead u will see clubs like city, Chelsea, or even arsenal supporting with money.

I concur. They think they can keep on killing African Americans and we Africans will just keep quiet? We are seeing these racists on social media bragging about killing our brothers and sisters in America and they think they can come here and enjoy the sun? Our governments are now monitoring social media. Anybody who harms an African American will be arrested on sight if he ever comes to Africa.

Let me tell you a story a friend of mine still in states just experienced yesterday in Ohio. She went out to join In the protest only for her fellow blacks to mock her, making monkey sounds and tell her she is from the descendants of Joseph's brother who sold him into slavery, because we sold them to the whites. They made fun of her, she left crying.. She's traumatized now as we speak

In ur quests to prove a point, u both ended up talking in the "nonsense" and it seems u both are sharing one brain.

Is it the Arsenal that are still looking for money to pay off Pepe's transfer fee?


Oh, I forgot that the hate u lots have for Liverpool is eating u guys up.

Don't worry, Man City will win champions league so una go calm down.

Liverpool personally sent out a message to Evra apologizing for what they did that year!
Evra said so in an EPL show and said he has already accepted the apology and everyone has moved on!
