    There's no reason to do a tribute to a event where nothing good came out of it. His life wasn't all that positive after the fact either. We've had too many Hip Hop joints in the 90's all about the riots not much about the man himself. RIP

    Ya'll really surprised when white people are racist? lol..Its encoded in their genetics to be racist..They are genetically reccessive beings so its natural for them to have hatred for people who are superior to them as far as DNA is concerned..Nubians jump higher, run faster, rap with soul, dance better etc..The bones of lucy proves that black ppl were the first ppl on the planet and that every race and sub race spawned from african progenitors..White archeologists uncover these bones and become upset when they find out they are of nubian hertiage so they try to hide the truth

    They gotta keep us doped up,in the club spellbound,not unifying with each other,hating each other while they run empires and make us the consumer footstool of the world...

    RIP Rodney King. Remember the riots and whether he liked it or not Rodney King was the unwilling catalyst for better changes. Thank you Obama for also eliminating the discriminatory laws dealing with charging discrepancies of 🤬 compared with powdered 🤬 . Now cops have less excuses to harass someone just cause they DWB (driving while black or brown).

    considering that i hear white archaeologists talking about life originating in Africa ALL THE TIME, this doesn't even make any sense

    Yelp! and you'll pass that mindset onto to the next generation - so they can complain for another generation just like you do - why do black people keep doing this? then they wonder why others don't wanna be around you and yours.SO black people have superior genes/DNA - huh? YET they can't seem to get along with others, and are always sniveling about being victimized - wow!

    🤬 not just players from those teams even more players than that. That's why i'm always tryna show love and reach to my peoples in real life and try not to commit crime or pain to my own people and i've done a very good job so far. 🤬 them other fools though. I always try to show my folks a way if i can and really do it not in that phony "look at me i'm a good person, i care" type of way. I always have that black pride in my heart but on the flip though i lose alot because of it.

    At the same i think every black person, especially us black males, have alot of resentment towards fellow black men and/or women especially because of our lack of relationships with other black males/females whether it's in the streets, our everyday circle or just our fathers/mothers or whatever. Since most black people come from the hood, which is a poor place with nothing but people with broken dreams, broken spirits and desperately tryna find a way out, we kinda grow up around the worst type of black folks possible. I think alot of us got alot of hate towards our own people whether we admit it or not but at the same time knowing that we're all the same and the only ones we got when it comes down to it we always try to stick together. That's why black folks almost always only stick together when our backs are against the wall.

    LOL

    You're a 🤬 , it's clear. You're spewing lies with no facts. How does it feel to have to make 🤬 up to fit the bill? Does it make you feel more better?

    We learned from the Rodney King beating. Whitey learned from the Rodney King beating. If whitey gets out of pocket again we can unite and riot and next time it wont be in our hoods but on some Beverly Hills 🤬 .

    Yeah! how come that keeps happening? Blacks riot and destroy there own communities. SO now we got several pending riots - U would think by now someone should be able to organise these events like they do when those flash mobs happen - IMO blacks aren't gonna be happy until they destroy stuff & it has to be white peoples stuff.
