    Let me know what you're doing to fight injustice & heal the world.

  2. Mya Freeton says:

    Lewis, this moment is bigger bec it was orchestrated… … …Unfortunately with so much history of actual racism, it wasn't hard to do…hmm.

  3. Duane says:

    I really enjoyed this conversation. However, I'm hearing lots of conversations about racism between white hosts (Conan, Colbert, Fallon, Myers) and black guests (Van Jones, Amber Ruffin, Keegan Micheal Key), which is important. What I'm not seeing are conversations between white hosts and white guests about racism that is targeted specifically towards African American – antiblackness. Louis, I would love to see you interview the author of White Fragility, Robin Diangelo, discussing why it is so hard for White American to have an open dialogue about racism and the way in which this community can begin the process of dismantling systemic racism in America, as suggested earlier by Reverend Beckwith.

  9. David Romero says:

    I have been learning about the history of the U.S. and of slavery. I always wondered how people can be so horrible to other people. I agree with others, educating ourselves is important. Learning the history is eye opening. Warning, there is a lot about history that is hard to stomach.

  10. Shared on Facebook! Thank you.

  11. this is in open eyes what the europeans do. the bloodline created status of superior by Johann Friedrich Blumenbach which created race delusion in 1779… white skin people and some red which sold their souls out must need sever mind programs on how to love self. they do not know how to love self

  12. The Psychology of police officers has to evaluated. How are they hired, what is their background, are questions to ask before hiring?

  13. Everybody can’t do everything, but everybody can do something!

  14. “Mediocrity attacks excellence”! Profound statement!

    I don't know this reverend… But we are 25 minutes in and he hasn't mentioned God's name a single time.
    I appreciate this conversation but don't agree with it.

  19. I've been following Michael Beckwiths teachings for a decade. This is the first time I've heard him contradict them.

    I saw the George Floyd video and there is no doubt. George was talking legibly throughout the video, clear evidence he was easily able to breath despite George's continued statements that he could not breath. Several times George lifted his head off the pavement and held it off the pavement for a time, lifting the actors portraying a police office up as he lifted his head, demonstrating a lot of strength.

    The person portraying a police office had the shin of his leg, NOT his knee on the back of George’s neck. George was easily able to rotate his head left and right while talking. The actors portraying police officers were not making any attempt to get George into a police vehicle and transport him to their station. Why not?

    The actors portraying police officers were not properly dressed, specifically their “badges” did not have their names nor their numbers on them. When the “ambulance” arrived George was still breathing, although very shallowly. The ambulance “attendees” are wearing brown based military uniforms. The ambulance “attendees” did nothing but pick up George, with the help of the actors portraying police officers, put him on a gurney as quickly as they could and put him in the “ambulance” and leave.

    The ambulance “attendees” did nothing to check his vitals, absolutely nothing! They were ONLY concerned about getting George out of there as fast as they could. They were not at all concerned about his vital signs, any injuries, or providing any emergency medical care at all. Ask any EMT, Paramedic what the standard operating procedure at a scene is and they will tell you environmental assessment, assessment of vital signs, treat as necessary.

    Georges Breathing was NOT checked. Georges Pulse was NOT checked. Georges Airway was NOT checked. There was not even any conversation about the condition of George. There was NO conversation at all. Because they knew George was OK. They knew they did not need to check anything.

    The ambulance “attendees” could not have done any of that anyway because they were actors, government employees, doing what had been planned. They were all government employees, doing what had been planned. Even the black man talking throughout, “Your choking him, he can’t breath, your killing him.” All scripted and planned to incite civil unrest.

    I challenge you Mr. Howes get a copy of the video in question. Assemble working police officers, Paramedics who work in emergency settings, people who are experts at staging fake news like this and study the video of George. They will tell you this was a planned and staged event. There is no George Floyd. There was an actor portraying a man they called George Floyd. The George Floyd video clearly leaves no doubt this was staged. IF you really are about the School of Greatness you will get to the bottom of this – the truth!

  22. Delia Ocampo says:
