    Looks like a wonderful film. Hillary Clinton has done more to harm Black People than Trump ever did, and Barack Obama has harmed Black people, at home because of unleashing racist Blue Klux Klan police terrorists, overseeing mass incarceration, and being a bomber who kills Black and Brown people (and others) all over the world. USA founded on genocide and slavery, does genocide and slavery every day, even how.

    It’s not just blacks it’s all minorities, most police departments are down right corrupt. the whole system went to crap with the privatization of prisons and before that prosecutorial lawlessness. Orange county in California is on the right track with a law they just passed against overzealous prosecutors.
