Do you think the situation in USA right now is really a discrimination issue or something else ?

Recently, We started to hear more about the black people were being killed by the white police much more than this year 2016.It is a very sensitive issue and it difficult to say whether the police has problem or it was really the black people did break the law. Maybe you can comment on that and share your opinion with us ?

When repeated investigations show that unarmed men and women are being murdered by those who are supposed to protect and serve, it's definitely a problem. Even if some of the black people did break the law, in too many of the cases there has been no justification for the use of deadly force against them.

There's justification, obviously, because of the prosecution rate or lack there of. We just don't get it.

But in some of the highly publicized cases, deadly force was called for. I'd be interested to know whether that many more blacks than whites were killed by the police in 2016. I haven't checked the numbers. I did check the numbers about murder victims in my native Chicago. Literally hundreds of black Americans are murdered there every year.

It's pure, undiluted hatred on both sides. Why shoot a tasered suspect? Whose benefiting from all this blood shed? Why do we blacks kill each other? It's a strange and ugly time. I pray every day.

Yes, more prayer is needed and may God heal all the broken hearts and let everyone knows that Jesus loves everybody and He does't want to see anymore killing and hatred.

Yes. Which statistic sells newspapers and fuels the hate between us?

Ah, thanks for these numbers. I would have thought that the numbers would be closer for backs and whites. Yes, the media is largely responsible for the "false meme" because it makes them (the press) relevant.

I don't know what to think but I DO KNOW it's not making ANY SENSE to why this is happening I look at it this way God put us ALL on this earth to love & care for one another not to harm or kill us.

I think USA surely need more prayer. I think they all need Jesus to encounter them in a new way to heal their bodies and their broken hearts as well.

The real problem is poverty and a culture that glorifies violence.
