I'm surprised Hills didn't invite Rachel Dolezal to talk about the phenomena of identifying as a black person when you are actually white, but then again, that might be a little too close to home for old Hills and her cotton-pickin chilli sauce.

Truer words were never spoke. You got it.
And nothing will change; it'll hash out the same way again for this election.

Meh, in the long run............what does it really matter. It is, simply, what it is.

I wasn't taught any of this...........I've lived it, year over year, election over election, demonstration over demonstration.

It is........what it is. Denying it doesn't make it any different from what it is.

And in the long run...........who really cares? Nothing changes.....it just keeps going on.

Shawn King will be there, so they have the pretend African American demographic covered.

Real piece of work Clinton's party.

Stick and twist the knife in police officers back.

The focus of the convention will then shift to families and criminal justice overhaul on its second night, which will feature a speech by former President Bill Clinton. He will be joined by the mothers of police-related violence victims, including Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.

Wait the logic already doesnt add up. How was treyvon a police victim? Wasnt he shot by a civilian with zero police connection who thought he was the appointed neighborhood watch vigilante defender?

This convention seems sketchy.

It's not focusing on just police violence, but also gun violence.

Correctmundo!

Martin wasn't a victim of 'police violence'.

The rest had criminal histories.

And I don't think the DOJ indicted anyone of malfeasance.

Two words entirely MADE up by Clintons party.

So much for the 'individual' is to blame AGAIN.

All three were petty criminals who had a hand in their own demise. What annoys me most is that the black community attempts to canonize the worst elements of our community. You simply cannot take people seriously after this buffoonery.

Of course, this is just pandering to the uninformed black electorate. Meanwhile, there won't be one word mentioned about illegal immigrants taking jobs, teachers unions block school choice keeping poor black kids in under performing schools, or how war on poverty policies and feminism has contributed to the outlandish 75% out of wedlock birth rate in the black community.

Look for "gun violence" to be conflated with a "national health emergency" and rhetoric indicating that it needs to be looked at as a "mental health issue."

I don't know what else you would call, in general, the act of committing a violent act with the use of a firearm. It's just a generic term.

Also, we have to wait and see what they say on the issue before we jump the gun, no pun intended.

Well first off don't use words made up by politicos.

There is no such thing as 'object' violence to begin with.

People commit CRIMES.

Which by the by is already verboten under existing laws.

This will be a stupid move on Clinton's part. It's been pretty much proven by the Justice Dept and the coroner's report that the whole inital premise was false. Clinton has nothing political to gain and much to lose by having her speak. It's not like the Black vote is in play much this election.

Yes, we really do need to get a handle on these guns that become self aware and begin shooting people.

Unless her intention is to add to the artificial sentiments that police are out to get black people and further escalate the tensions between those who follow the line of thinking that Brown and others were deliberately wronged by those in power and authority figures.

She can then portray herself as their savior and thus take advantage of whatever political capital can be made from such divisiveness.

What political capital?? It's a demo she has locked up, hell even 60's civil rights supporter Bernie Sanders couldn't sway the modern African American Electorate. Personally, I hope she does this while her own protesters fight the Police in Philly.

That is incorrect. Our laws do differentiate between simple crimes and crimes committed with the assistance of an "object".

Assault with a deadly weapon, for example, compared to simple assault or battery.
