    god she’s such a *racist*
    Ayanna pressley claims she wants to end racism and segregation. however she said these exact words in a speech (you can look it up) “we dont want any blacks who don’t want to be a black voice, we don’t want any brown people who don’t want to be a brown voice, and we don’t want muslims who don’t have a muslim voice.”
    do you understand what she just said? If you are black and don’t speak for black people than don’t speak at all, if you are muslim and don’t speak for muslim people then don’t speak at all, if you are brown and you don’t speak for brown people then don’t speak at all.
    in simpler terms, if youre black and don’t speak for blacks then you shouldn’t speak, etc etc.
    In other words, ayanna is saying that your free speech should be limited by the color of your skin. you should only stand up for people of your own skin color.
    she claims she wants to end segregation and racism? by limiting human rights based on the color of your skin? do we really want someone with this mindset running our country?

    Her stance on gun control is really smart and she is so well spoken about it! The right's argument to gun control is there are more instances of community gun violence than there are mass shootings. She is really smart to address both saying yes these are both problems and we need to approach gun control from both angles.

    Trevor asked her what are they gonna do about corporations that hire undocumented immigrants, she didn't answer that. I understand that migrants are not supposed to be vilified but there's something fishy right there.

    You know what is really cruel ? Not going after the real problems or taking away the real things that are killing people. Not legalizing marijuana federally and forcing citizens and children to continue dangerous Pharmaceutical drugs, not going after tobacco the way the go after guns. These are the public health crisis guns don’t even come close. Her statistics are also not true, passing an assault weapons ban would cause thousands of deaths not prevent them

    Why do the people who are most marginalized (POC) always have to fight and protect against "WHITE PEOPLE'S" evil and wicked policies. Why don't so-called "WHITE PEOPLE" know how to show empathy? The problem with this colonized racist nation has never been people of color it has always been white supremacy, institutional racism, and white entitlement/privilege of an inferior race of people who call themselves white to give themselves a false sense of superiority. When in fact white supremacy, institutional racism, white entitlement/privilege is truly the cancer of human history. Why don't so-called "white people" go back to where they came from especially since they are the colonizers, murderers, rapist, racist, liars, and thieves?

    Do not take our guns, it will not solve a damn thing. If murder is the intent the gun is merely a tool to facilitate it. That person will still inflict harm with or without a gun. Also there is about twice as many people in New York city than there is in all of New Zealand, so I am calling that a bit of unfair comparison of how to deal with gun related violence in the US. Putting a ban on assault rifles would increase disparity in peoples opinions on a relevant issue which would probably increase the underlining conditions for acts like mass shootings to occur. However, without a gun to facilitate such an act to occur your forcing to either deescalate or escalate which in the case of an already unstable mind would more than likely be the latter so casualties would probably increase as well. Gambling like there are no consequences is what this government does best anymore so it would appear.

    Maybe Ms Pressley can give us the number to the Congressional Black Caucus so we can lobby them to have a real black agenda versus lining their pockets in foundational black life struggles and not doing one thing for ADOS people.

    Life has adverse conditions, but to cast everything in this light of trauma is the new tactic of excusivist "cause and effect". The problem is that the "causes" she describes and the "effects" are merely excuses to push this narrative. There isn't a slingshot effect on that list of issues she named; everyone who encounters a villain or adverse conditions in their life doesn't become evil; the majority don't.
    And again it's peddle to the floor laws and insane premises for " gun violence" while still pushing for criminal justice reform in areas raught with crime and the solution is something else other than addressing criminals.
    This is a 90's WWF rant to cast personal choices as mental health issues; it sounds great if she's your favorite wrestler, but this is standard "straw purchase" policy.
    The life boat she's handing you is still full of holes so given time you sink.

    Trauma is life. Life is what you do while waiting to die. Like all consumer products we come and go. Sorry to tell you that if you want to make the world a better place start with yourself. Hint stop shitting on others. You want something work for it. Someone had to work for what you been given. Our ancestors would commit suicide if they seen we were the end result, wanting safe spaces for trivial everyday inconveniences while they feared getting eaten or attacked when they slept. Us "my life is over someone called me a name." Bad shit happens in life, deal with it.

    In your zeal to disarm the public in the name of (false) security, you have revealed a great flaw. But, it's clear that democrats & republicans don't care about the People. A majority of them probably got into politics to enrich themselves & to live above the law... The same law they are supposed to be upholding. A gang of well-dressed wolves & hypocrites who fancy themselves as our leaders.
    WAKE UP ✌🏾

    Before Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, flip floppers. 2016 Bernie Sanders had a agenda for the U.S.A. Bernie Sanders for president in 2020, he may not have a cure-all, but he will bring a balance, just what we need. He has a heart of a lion, and he has true conviction. Youth, black and brown people, pay more than the usual attention, wake up. By: Charles Jordan, check me out on You Tube.

  • Jace Cavacini
    Jace Cavacini 25 days ago

    Yes, to everything she said. Also: we need to acknowledge and deal with the fact that mental scars also LEAD to gun violence. We need to acknowledge that these killers are MADE by our culture. Calling them “sick” or “mentally disturbed” is just a way for our society to act like they are exceptions and rare or “defective humans” and ignore what CREATED them.
    Almost no one is born a monster. Monsters are made and our culture is really accomplished at making monsters. Throwing drugs at people is not the solution. Violence begets violence, yes, and we need to acknowledge that emotional violence is real and that it creates monsters. The political scum who incites it is just a catalyst.
