    Prof. Glaude is an amazing man. I’m humbled and inspired by his wise words.

      Well, I don’t believe he went far enough because he said Trump was just a “symptom” of the ugly underbelly of white racism that has existed in the U.S. for centuries.

      Nevertheless, a portion of Trump’s base is comprised of “White Domestic Terrorists” who are committing the mass murders we are experiencing on a more frequent basis.

      His base includes White Supremacists, Neo-Nazis, White Nationalists, the Aryan Brotherhood, and one-hundred other white domestic terrorists who are inspired by Trump on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis to commit acts of racist hatred and murder.

      We can discuss the issue of “White Racism” AFTER we deal with the clear and present danger Trump represents to all minorities in the U.S. RIGHT NOW.

      The mass murders will continue until Trump is forcibly removed from office for acts against humanity — just as all of Adolph Hitler’s henchmen faced at the Nuremberg Trials after WWII.

    Don’t glorify violence, Trump said. Spoken by a man who told his base to knock the crap out of their opponents. This goon is an absolute joke.

      I’d be willing to bet the Fuhrer in Chief believes Norwegian immigrants would have had better sense than to get themselves shot.

    At this trend mexico 🇲🇽 will have to build a wall and put a ban against the neighbourhood terrorism threat☺️

  5. Thank you for telling the truth.

    So the demographics are changing. Who cares? Things are always changing! How do you fear a mixed baby, black and white? They’re the handsomest babies on the face of this earth! Interracial couples are everywhere! Who cares? Let people do what makes them happy. This bigotry must end!

      @Michael Hoerig Its not about fear, guy. Its about not being able to control the immigration of our own country, then being told we’re all-powerful oppressors. We don’t even control our own immigration, its the same as not being able to control who comes over to your house. Its about sovereignty.

      Saying its about race is the excuse they use so that mid-wits like you will say “well I don’t want to be racist, so I guess I’ll relinquish our sovereignty to foreigners like a good little boy!”. Stop pretending the issue is race mixing.

    • @Michael Hoerig yes, we probably will be, and it will get harder and harder to see any folks are a mostly of African heritage, too. eventually everyone is going to have to get over it. you are obviously over it. i hope everyone gets over it. i notice the Asians don’t marry out of their heritage that much, but even they will have to get over it someday. like the Native Americans say, “all my relations.” Humans are all our relatives. On a side note: i saw a woman one time who was Swedish, Black, and Japanese. Gosh, that was the most beautiful creature I have ever ever seen ever.

    He is right, but Trump is emboldening the racism. Leadership comes from the top, not from the bottom.

    • GFY45 HUG There were 251 mass shootings in 216 days in the US under trumps watch. Far far more than Obama And why?? Because trump is a racist and supports white supremacy. Trump also went on far far more golf trips than Obama while president but blasted Obama for it

    • Watson Telajan That’s BS. Obama endured more hatred and criticism because he was black than any other president Give me an example of Obama’s racism

    • Grandiose Small Things | August 6, 2019 at 10:01 AM | Reply

      GFY45 HUG the presence of his BLACK face in that White House emboldened it

    • @Donna Brown You’re stupid. Calm down.

    He’s right!!! A bunch of scared MFs that would rather live in imagined comfort than to stand up for truth, fairness n what’s right.

      Sad thing is if all races worked together instead of letting ourselves be divided we’d all be doing better. These maga fools are hurting themselves and are too stupid to even understand it.

    Powerful truth spoken. Crying while I listen to this knowing there’s bound to be more darkness before the light…

    God Bless you Brother, now that’s the RAW Truth, in and educated way, about white people and their denial of what they teach their children behind closed doors, hes right we’re gonna keep seeing it again and again and again, until white come out of their darkness. Every black person in the country knew what the TEA Party was.

    • Yes indeed, we knew! What’s happening to Hispanic Americans is what has/still happening to Black Americans today. We can’t change as a nation without acknowledging the truths and wrongs of the past.

    • He wasn’t just talking about white people. This applies to each and everyone of us! Being a minority myself, I see a lot of hate from non white people as well. We need to be careful what we say and do in front of our children..Their first education comes from home. I myself am raising my sweet g”baby and she is of Panamanian black and polynesian mix. I catch myself cussing around her about politics and at times racy towards white people. My point is, we need to look within ourselves and put our own house in order if we want to make a change.

      @Rebeka Falo He literally said he was talking about white people in the video. Rewatch it.

  11. Trump: I could ‘shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters’

  12. Yes, let it be known… This is us!
    Finally someone has spoken the truth about it. Let us be honest about this.

    My God, @ProEddieGlaude !!! This- man-is-the-truth. Whenever i see him on a news panel, i immediately stop and watch. PREACH BROTHER, PREACH!

    This man is telling truth to power! I could not of said it any better!

    This is some of the best tape I’ve ever seen. He delivered that truth very effectively.

  16. Wendy Pastore | August 5, 2019 at 10:12 PM | Reply

    Eddie Glaude has been beautifully eloquent and getting right to the start. I always have tears after he talks and want to give him a hug.

    By the way, the baby was two months old, not two years.

  17. When he speaks, especially today, he gives me goosebumps. So much passion.

  18. So we’ll spoken by the brother. The racist has always been here Trump just exposed it.

    Powerful. Eloquent. Truth.
    You don’t get too many moments like that live on TV. One for the ages.
    Hopefully it will be heard by the people who most need to hear it.

  20. Eddie is the real deal. This is the first time that I have watched an MSNBC video over and over. I love this man
