    Another movie about racist police. How about the white guy who was convicted of raping a black girl and was abused in prison by black inmates but years later was found not guilty. I feel bad for these kids but let us stop demonizing the police. So many news, shows, and movies portraying them unfairly. Most of them are not evil. Yes there are a few racist cops (of different ethnicity/background and not just whites) but a huge majority just wants peace and order to reign. The thing that bothers me the most is it's the news where white police officers shoots black dudes that gets the most coverage, even on cases where the police officer was justified to shoot. I used to believe these reports and even joined rallies and protests condemning the police but once I started doing research on my own, the stats doesn't back up these claim. More white people have died in the hands of police officer than black folks. More police officers are victims of mauling and shootings by black folks than the other way
    around. And black folks are more likely to be hit by lightning than being shot by a police officer. How many movies and t.v. shows have come out about police brutality the last ten years? Now how many movies have come out about police being harmed by black folks? This is insane. Stop dividing this nation with your self serving propaganda.

    When black people disregard what other race think about them and restore functionality and self validation to themselves, they will take their rightful place at the top of food chain. This woman Ava Duvernay is paid by non-blacks to depict her own kind as victims and bottom feeders.

    Blacks are 13% of the population and commit more than 50% of murders. The black on white rape rate is staggeringly disproportionate. Yet this is the story that Netflix chooses, trying to show blacks as innocent victims of racism.

    Let me guess, they were having a study group in central park that night? Just innocent lil boys bein' all innocent, nothin' to see here. Not robbing or attacking 8 other people with the rest of the dindus that didn't get railroaded into a conviction for a crime they didn't actually commit? They were just sweet little school boys in the wrong place at the wrong time stealing shit from the wrong people.

    Trump isn't going to like this one. He made it his personal mission to have the same boys executed for the crime. He took out full page ads accusing the boys of committing the rape and murder. BUT due to DNA evidence, they were all exonerated. 27 years later, in 2016, Trump still insisted they were guilty, and brought it up during his campaign. This is despite scientific evidence to the contrary. He also felt that even if they weren't specifically guilty of that crime, they had shady histories and should have never been released. Good thing he was still just a private citizen when they were acquitted in 2014.

      William Vono This actually happened. No one gives a flying fuck about what you’re tired of. However, how about getting tired about things that have affected lives of black people because of racism, be or get tired of the racism. How about be productive and not be a piece of shit that let’s their ignorant bias show.

    ...The most awful part was AFTER they were exonerated and released THEIR LIVES WERE STILL DESTROYED!!!!
    watch the documentary: "The Central Park Five".
    and a Black women prosecutor at the time had all kinds of INFORMATION that it wasnt these kids ,but once they allowed themselves to be "framed" by crooked, racist white cops and all but one gave false confessions - she ignored that evidence.
