We need to do better.

This video is not monetized.
I discuss the situation with George Floyd and the injustice surrounding his death. This is a tragedy. I have spent a lot of time throughout the last week and a half reflecting, asking questions and getting educated on what is going on.
This is not a stand-alone incident. There is a seemingly endless list of examples including Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Philando Castile, Alton Sterling, Trayvon Martin...

    Police brutality has nothing to do with race, it has to do with power. The police officers have too much power. The groups that they like to abuse the most is #1 women and #2 low income/poor people. The media is only discussing one side of things, they don’t tell and show the full story of what police officers do when they abuse their power. All lives matter. Every race and every color. We need to have true equality and fairness in this world. We need to have racial equality and gender equality. So that way children (our future generation) can live in an equal and, hopefully, peaceful world. Saying that “black lives matter” is racist and it supports black supremacy. It’s the same concept as white supremacy. If someone posted “white lives matter” it would be dubbed racist, which it is. The saying “black lives matter” does not support equality, because it does not say that other lives matter - like Native Americans, Latinos, Asians, Middle Eastern, etc. Other races were and are victims of police brutality as well. Another issue is that some of the black men who were killed by police officers were gang members. Gang members kill, steal, torture, and rape. By deleting or reporting this comment, that means your supporting racism and that you do not support freedom of speech.

      Of course they abuse women, So many would easily sleep with police and fire that it's easy for both not to repect women. Recall the woman who wanted to lick the policeman's butthole to get out of trouble, or the ones who readily admit to breaking the law in the hopes that police would stop them, andhey would offer to give it up to get out of a ticket or a jam

    Again people keep acting like this only ever happens to black people yet it happens to all races (including white people) and saying black lives matter is ignoring the fact that all lives matter. It isolated the incidents to one group of people when it doesn't just happen to them. Also acting like it is every police officers' fault is ignoring the fact that it is only a minority of police officers and taking it out on all of them is just unfair. And no matter what violent protesting does zero good.

      They just want that sweet money, and what a better way to earn it than by preaching to the choir. I love how everyone behaves like George Floyd was the first man, no matter what color, to die by the hand of a police officer. Bunch of bleeding hearts and sellouts, and it's making it harder for me to support them after videos like this one. (I'm aware that I'm the minority and that they obviously won't lose sleep over losing my support, but I felt like getting it out there)

    I don't know man but my Brown friends are having some amazing life better than me in most cases in the US and in Canada. They say they are not oppressed in any way. Generations of Indians have born and died in the US. There are racists all around the world. There are racism and segregation based on caste here in India. Northern people looking at the southerners in a peculiar way because we are darker. I have heard of businesses, not recruiting black people - because they are lazy. More violence within their communities, high college drop-offs in colleges, and more there are even greater things that need to be addressed within black communities like high abortions and black on black attacks. No one talks about that- those are life too. As for Geroge what happened to him was tragic - But looking at stories certain things don't add - like Geroge and the cop worked at the same bar- I am not a conspiracy nut but that's what I analyzed.

    It's irresponsibly rush to conclude that the reason the officers acted so incompetently and used excessive force is because they had racial animus toward Floyd. Also, I see some people assuming this was a murder. REALLY? A murder in the middle of the street, in broad daylight AND while being recorded? Where did these people leave their common sense? Also, I'd like to see data evidence of this claim that racism is "systemic". Nowadays it feels like people reflexively throw around that word without any evidence.

    Hi Nathaniel, your video is appreciated. However, it’d be really great if you could speak out on all the racism that exists in the countries you love to frequent or talk about. Countries like Argentina, Italy, Mexico, and even France have deep history when it comes to racism. Sadly, most, if not all of the aforementioned countries sweep racism under the rug and ignore it. What’s worse: living in a country where racism is around but it’s outspoken and confronted often (like the US) or countries like Argentina, Italy, Mexico, and France where racism is around but never addressed? Nathaniel, hopefully this is just the first video from you on this topic. You have an effective voice and a thoughtful mind that can bring to light the issue of racism in the countries you often visit or talk about.

    What happened with George Floyd was inexcusable. Everyone knows that. But you talk like white cops are doing this to black people every day because they are black. They aren't. The racism I see on a daily basis as a white American teen girl is directed towards white people. A black woman my age would have an infinitely easier time getting a business loan from the bank because she is black. Any black person at all has an easier time getting into a prestigious college like Harvard simply because they are black. And the black people I know yelling racist slurs and insults at me and my family, including my 8 year old sister and 5 year old brother, have excuses made for them and nobody pays much attention if they steal from us, do drugs on our property or anything else much. Because they are black. I live in the suburbs of a big city so I've delt with this since I was a kid. What's more is protesters for Black Lives Matter in my country are burning black owned stores. Looting grocery stores and burning bus stops so that elderly black women can't do something as simple as getting groceries so they can eat. And in case you didn't know, these are black people doing this to other black people in the name of stopping racism. That is wrong. There is no justification for that either, Nathaniel. So yes. I agree. Racism is a huge issue. But it's not just white Americans. And now, with riots, there are even more people looking for an excuse to get whitey. Violent crime is overlooked because it is done to a white person. And robbing and beating a white teen is okay because "white people used to own black slaves" and " whites are so racist." Because, in the words of rioters looting and burning small businesses owned by people they didn't know, people who had done nothing wrong to them, people who only wanted to make a living for themselves and their families while offering to the community, " We built this country. We will tear it down." We have protests. For Goarge Floyd. And he was a criminal. People care about criminals. Will no one care for us because we are white or because we don't support riots? WHO WILL CARE ABOUT US?

    Good Morning, been a while since I wrote something. Hope it helps 🙏🏾 To ignore your intuition is to deny your true self, the direction in decision making is now up to the Ego. Consisting mostly of society and the world around us since childhood, the Ego can sometimes make decisions that are not in alignment of who we really are. The key is to understand how the Ego works, by doing so we bypass the surface level of thinking which allow our responses to flow from a pure logic. The Ego in many ways, tends to be self serving, quick to react, in most cases completely disregard the impact it may cause on those around us. A more healthy way of thinking is understand that we are all connected, whether we realize or not. What we do to others, we in a way do to ourselves. So it is important to seek all perspectives to receive all logic. Our intuition is always there, all it takes the shedding of the Ego embody It. -•Tequila Chanel•
