Stop trying to push this crap. Black people have always hated white people and this will only get worse. After this last riot race relations will never be the same again and will only get worse. Kneel all you want and put out little BLM signs it will not work and will only fuel the fire. You saw it, and you saw what they did to their own in St. Louis. Can't blame whitey anymore!
