My husband told me about this today, I haven't had the chance to read the news yet, so I'm going to go read about it now.
I agree. Too much hatred. Though honestly, if I was black, with the amount of innocent people being killed because of the color of their skin, I'd probably be even angrier than I already am.

These events are so horrific and tragic for all those involved. I pray for a world where every single one of us can get along with each other in peace. I think that's what most of us want in reality.
Unfortunately, there's more than meets the eye when it comes to such tragedies and it's not as black and white as it seems (no pun intended). The division wasn't caused by accident. It's indoctrinated into us and we're made to think and believe certain things that cause us to choose sides. In order to stop it, we need to do our own research and stop relying on the mainstream media and politicians to tell us what and how to think. I believe we owe this much to those who lost their lives senselessly - to know what is truly behind all of this.

None of them deserved to die. However, in reality look at all the people who have been slaughtered because of the fact that they're black; Trayvon Martin, Sandra Bland, Rekia Boyd, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Freddie Gray, Alton Stirling, Philando Castile and many many more... I think they would all be alive today if they we're white. We have yet to see the outcome of the last two men, but with all the other names I wrote there was no conviction in any of the cases. Maybe if those who murdered them were actually convicted last night may not have happened.

I feel terrible about how these afro-american men die without compassion, they literally were begging for their life. I would like to live in a world where people wouldn't judge for the color of skin, nationality, social status or how much money you earn per year. These police officers should be quit their jobs.

These stories are all so tragic and scary. What is the world coming to? I worry so much for my children. There needs to be a very big change in the way things are going. I am also grateful that I live in Canada because although we are not without problems, they don't seem to be on the same scale.

I don't think there is any other way to state it I surely wouldn't want to be a cop now a days or someone who isn't white. Gosh I hope that doesn't get taken wrong. I think if Canada had the massive population that US did we would probably have the same issues. I couldn't imagine the ratio of cop per person in U.S. But either way this seems to be getting out of control my son showed me the video of the cops who shot one of the men recently it was awful the man was just murdered no other way to say it.

This is awful. I just do not understand being like this. I just watched the video below. It's 4 minutes long but it has a powerful and important message. I loved it. Sorry if it's not clicky.

A terrible tragedy. I feel terrible for all involved, I truly believe that if someone is brandishing a firearm, knife, officers have to act quickly sometimes resulting in deaths. Like i said it's a terrible thing for everyone concerned.

If police are ACTUALLY being attacked with a weapon, they must of course defend themselves. But none of the black men recently fatally shot by police officers in the US were 'brandishing a firearm or knife'. They were shot after very little provocation.

Yes it is very sad when people have so much hatred like this inside that they feel they have to take a innocent life or lives.It is rather scary because,we really don't know what is going on in peoples minds,no matter what color or where they come from.Something has to be done.I'm so happy to be living in Canada.Granted we have our share of people going on a shooting spree but,nothing like up in the states.My Aunt from Desmoins Iowa just went back to the states after a 2 week visit with us and she said,there is nothing to look on your front lawn in the morning and see a dead body out there.Scary.She's trying to make arrangements now to move back home,after living away up there for about 45yrs.I hope to God she does.
