She's expressing how struggling, low-income people are affected by all this violence and vandalism. They are the ones who suffer the most from all this unrest.

Tbh This isn’t for George Floyd anymore, it’s an excuse to act this way🤦🏽‍♂️



Can’t believe even this channel is showing this. Mainstream is doing nothing but causing more division. There’s an agenda at hand. Just watch next to come is Covid second round. Watch and see. The old system needs to FALL in order for the new system to RISE. NWO is coming. Antifa is a bunch of terrorists who have taken over BLACK LIVES MATTER and are using Floyd’s death as a means to steal kill and destroy. Evil to the core and should be handled accordingly. Mainstream is commending this behavior because they are part of the problem and are an enemy to this country. There’s a big picture here and big agenda coming to a neighborhood near you, me, all of us. A depression that this country hasn’t seen in 150 years is coming. Stock up on food, buy gold and silver, the Petra dollar will lose its value altogether so one world currency can be created for the NWO. This is a plan that’s been in the making for over 100 years. Godbless all.

And to the African American police officer that ultimately gave his life protecting the rights and freedom for Americans over 20 years of his life... Where is his justice. It seems BLM has the ability to pick and choose its battles. RIP Mr floyd, cos America doesn't give 2 fks about honest and hard working people who give everything to serve its people. I won't have sympathy for those people who wreak havoc amongst their community and will one day require the aid or assistance of the law enforcement. Such hypocrisy.
