LST: Congressman Cleaver’s Statement On Verdict Of Derek Chauvin Trial

Money line . . .

"While this is a pivotal step in the march toward true justice under the law, we still have a long road to travel before we reach the promised land. We must continue to peacefully speak out, using today’s verdict as a catalyst for desperately needed reform in America’s policing system."

Sorry, promised land? Our prisons are overcrowded with Black men. Our inner city is full of Black people living off welfare. Inequality in educational and employment opportunities for Black people. One verdict changes none of that.

Maybe the "next step" down the road should be hoping that more "young black men" take some responsibility for their own behavior, treat others with some degree of civility, obey the law like everyone else, hold jobs and support their families, and even see if they can stop killing each other over pretty much anything.
The idea that somehow "the system" that everyone else lives with has to change in order to accommodate the the behaviors of a minority or a minority of the population, tries to absolve self-destructive behavior, and blames all their problems on everything and everyone else has been a loser for decades.
And continues to be.
Clapping takes two hands.
And so does praying.

"The Promised Land". = The complete and total subjugation of the citizenry to violent BLM/AntiFa thugs who become the de facto police/tip of the spear, enforcement agency of the D卐M☭CRAT/Fascist party.

Next up - the abolishment of local police and the replacement of them by a FEDERAL police force. What could go wrong?

Does the idiot Cleaver do anything in Congress except have his staff write letters?

Maybe a rich man like Emmanual Cleaver should pay his property taxes to help provide the funds for the public schools of the poor people in his community.

Well Cleaver what just happened may or may not have been justice. What we did see is ten steps back in the civil rights issue. Blacks will see suffering even more now that they threatened cities and threatened the jurors and witnesses in the Floyd case. I knew black people were bad but I guess I didn't realize how evil they really are.

I knew this ass wouldn't wait to preach some sort of horseshit.

The trial was a shame of justice.

Cleaver has had power for decades. What has he done to help blacks?

Not much.

It's only justice when a white man is convicted. When a black man is convicted, it's racist.

I only hope that one day soon I read Cleavers obit in the dying KC Star and he goes into the Promised Land. So tired of his shit.

Hey TKC, why is this always so one sided; why don't you ask the question when are we going to address the racism whites get from blacks??? Or is this a conversation you are afraid to have??

Please note that the article appeared in the Lee's Summit Tribune.

The Cleaver family has migrated eastward to Lee's Summit, escaping the deadly violence-prone unprofessionally managed KCMO.

"while this is a pivotal step in the march toward true justice under the law, we still have a long road to travel before we reach the promised land."

Translation: Though I served on the KCMO Council, as Mayor, and currently as your Congressman, you need to keep me in office because I haven't accomplished squat yet. My family is doing well with political patronage jobs (corporate boards, Black Archives, Port Authority, etc.) but I need a little more time to help your family too. Hahahaha!

Cleaver is another race-baiter keeping poor blacks under his thumb but taking complete advantage of them. Guess what, black people, get a job, stop making a living from milking welfare, and black men, start living up to your commitments. Your race has demonstrated just how stupid any of
Argh said…
you are. BLM has been hi-jacked by opportunists. Try being productive you self-induced victims.

Cleaver is not that popular on the East Side and passed up many opportunity to become a major historical figure in the region.

Distraction from the 100% or so increase in murders in KC and other democrat-run cities across the USA.

Care to report any stats on who's committing violent crime and where? It's pretty clear where the problem is.

"Tens of thousands of Whites took to the streets and looted and burned down businesses in their own neighborhoods, assaulted people with different skin colors, threw objects at police and destroyed police cars and screamed and wailed about their unfounded fears and paranoia that everyone is out to get them."

Just kidding. We have families, jobs and brains. In other words, we are superior to you.


FBI Uniform Crime Reports Table 43a: 13% commit 52% of murders and FAR EXCEED 13% in EVERY category of violent crime. Failed black community that glorifies crime, eschews education and dual parent homes and personal responsibility. But somehow that's our fault.

Why is this tkc asking folks to pick pictures to verify before post???

Has anyone ask cleaver about voter fraud ALLEGEDLY used to keep him on OFFICE. Cleaver and gis wife allegedly were planned parenthood board members.

Years ago carol coe alleged her name left off ballot at cleavers church. Cleaver was never a good guy. He maintained office without real support of the community. Many DESPISE cleaver behind his views that have never represented the COMMUNITY.

Cleaver did what j. B. Nutter told him. Now who is cleavers master. Cleavers church got huge stimulus check under a business.

Didnt cleaver come from Texas and start out as a community activist like OBAMA and then city council then mayor and stuck as a congressguy...

Recall cleaver name floated as president before Obama ever thought off.

Then he shelved, for Obama a community organizer. Cleaver has NEVER forgotten this after his service to j.b. nutter who allegedly decided who'd be elected to any office.
How would it look cleaver pushing homo agenda and a preacher to boot.... no THEY got obama to run the rails and push homo agenda.

Again lots of folks know this.

Cleaver knew about subprime loans and adjustable mortgage loans that were deliberately used to defraud blacks and whites and did nothing to stop it... example his Wells fargo schrade 2 years ago when well fargo defrauded folks Cleaver kissed up and all saw who cleaver really is.

God knows it all folks and Cleaver will have to own his SINS AGAINST THE PEOPLE.
