    There wouldn’t be so most protests if the guy was gay who was killed. Because black men especially wouldn’t be seen out protesting for a gay guy.

      True
      Black people hate hate people .

      I hope we can have a discussion about that very soon.

      Being illegal to be gay in over 40 different African countries.

      When we say justice, we mean justice and equality for all, whether u are black, gay, poor, disabled, etc.

    I’m sick of hearing about this. Can we go back to normal already. I do agree with comment that says if it was a gay person they wouldn’t be doing all these protests. But the actions are taking are disrupting life when we should be moving forward and healing from a global pandemic. Time to let go and get back to normal.
