I think whats going on in Charlottesville is not right because there removing a statue that been there for years.Also the statue is important because the college students look up to it and there againts white racismn .And i think its scary because there murdering people by running them over with cars.

I think that what's going on in Charlottesville is just messed up and I also think that Donald Trump is working with the White Supremacy because when he was giving his speech it sounded like he didn't write them somebody wrote it for him and that when he was speaking it sounded like he didn't even care about that poor lady who died

Why cant america be at peace? If people are capable of teaeing doen peoples rights, then im sure they are also capable of coming to peace with people from different race and beliefs. America is sad and i kinda want to leave the country and go to Europe of some other place thats not as crazy as America. Peace is not something hard to achieve. People need to learn to love one another without caring about their race or what they believe in. Its as simple as that

The events happening in Charlottesville is a sign that hate is starting to get more violent again. The only reason for it is because of the president he technically made it okay for have a violent hate protest ever since the press conference that was made at the trump tower.

I think it just sickiness me that I have to watch our country and people go through trauma like that why cannot live in peace we came from one creature we should let our eyes be colore blind by unknown hate

I think what's happening here is that hate started to get more violent again because some things may not be going right or being understood 2 different groups going against one another fighting for spots for whatever reason .

I believe that the white supremacist have no reason to be doing this and shouldn't be doing it. The statues that they surround should be taken down bcz this country is supposed to be based on freedom and equal rights but trump Is not showing that by stoping them. He is also showing that he is on their side because he is saying is both sides fault for he things that happen when it's mainly white supremacy complaining over nothing.

I believe that what has happened in Charlottesville isnt right why is there lots of racism? I dont think its right that just because we are people of color we should be racist to one another because at the end we are all equal and we are all human. Just because someone is white it doesnt make any human being lesser than them we all have the same human body parts one is not special then the other. You might have good qualities but that doesnt make you any better. To me this all matters what happened in Charlottesville because why doesnt Trump do anything about this is he wants to make "America Great Again" why doesnt he put a stop to all of this and ban "White Supremacy" ?! Because its obvious that trump is on there side,because hes also the one who created all of the racism and hate he made it worse he gave all white Supremacist confident by saying "ill make America Great Again" and well they believe him because hes the president and hes white and he also doesnt like people of color. Donald Trump Stated on Fox News " violence and hate must stop" but he created it so why doesnt he put a stop as mentioned above and instead of making American "great" Again in a negative way why doesnt he make America "GREAT" in a positive way.

What I see going is a good act of movement as we see there are ppl that are trying to make a change in there city.But to do that they have to speak up at talk about how they are goi mg to change there city.But as we can tell by looking at the pic this is not a friendly march in some one pic they are say to the other side fales.

My opinion on these horrific events that occurred in Charlottesville are disappointed. I'm disappointed because how can some one envy others just by a color, we should all come together as one and love one another because at the end of the day we all end up in the same place. President trump should've been more exclusive on the speech he spoke upon but he didn't write and he shouldn't try to make everything seem like we should all be together because he was the one saying Mexicans & illegals Should go back where they came from so he isn't any different from the white supremacist.

These events are starting to get more violent and maybe are going to cause something else in the future. The white supremisists and other groups need to get along so our world can be a better place for the future generation. Also, the violence in these meets need to stop, what ever happened to peaceful meetups?, now there is a death at almost every meet with white supremisists and other groups.

This was terrible, and heartbreaking the blamed should be on the KKK, the KKK should be banned from this country but I don't think banning is not going to slove the problem, the only way to slove the problem is that we should the KKK why the latinos and black people are important for this country and the KKK will understand, we won't be enemys with the KKK, they will leave us alone and everyone will be in peace.

The thing happening in Charlottesville is very upsetting because everyone is just fighting each other , being mad , being sad . The fact that someone's life was taken away because SHE HAD RIGHTS TO SPEAK HER MIND and others was just mad and wanted her to stay silent but she had a different opinion. I don't know why we have to fight and kill just because we all have different beliefs. This is not making anything right , it's just upsetting more people which brings in more mad people which makes it a big fight we all are in. Instead of making it a peaceful protest, it just got violence and cost a young woman life, yet no one will see it as a stop sign. Yet the KKK & people who just want it to be back to " All Whites " will continue to fight till we give up. Which is sad because they are okay with people dying . They won't stop till they get their way . Which brings it all back to a high fight.

I think this wrong that those white supremacists are doing why are they fighting people of other races they never did nothing to this country, Trump he's probably on the white supremacists side and is helping them succeed the speech he gave two weeks ago didn't sound convincing at all.

The things that happened in Charlottesville is so devastating.. Why would someone who wants equality, has to go through so many issues . A girl who only wanted to be treated equally got her life taken away because of this huge disaster and it makes me feel sick because Donald Trump isn't doing anything about the issue . Why start riots against each other if we are all human beings and should treat each other with respect one to another .

I think that’s trump is just a crackhead.He should just admite that he is a white supremacy.I think it is leading from wat happened in Charlottesville.The people that voted for are crackheads to.i would take a knee to at the game.

We have the right to stay up or take the knee we don't have to do it we have the right to protest agents it. Trump had no right to say what he said about the NFL player that they are sons of bitches he had no right to say that.
9/25/2017 02:04:42 pm
I think that what NFL players are doing is the right thing because Trump shouldn’t talk like that about them
9/27/2017 02:16:14 pm
the thing that happened in Charlottesville is wasn't right because everyone is just fighting against each other instead of trying to come together and make peace. Also the fact that someones life was taken away because she had the right to speak her mind , everything going on isn't right because we should all treat each other equally to make this place a better place
