Quddus Philippe is a caring, compassionate and so welcoming. I remember when he came over to do our podcast interview and he yelled my named from the street down below. I wish I had an ounce of his confidence. Follow Quddus here:

My question is if police brutality existed forever, why didn't we say as much then? George Floyd was the catalyst? Weren't there lives before Floyd who were affected that deserved such recognition as demolishing statues and cancelling people? Can anyone tell me the difference between Floyd's life and preceding black oppressed lives? Or was media an instrumental role in this? Also, how does one prove racist intent? Speech? Background checks? If proof is the color of skin of police and victim, then you are the one who's racist. There are black cops who I just call cops. There are white victims who I just call victims. Black on white crime? White on black crime? Yellow on Red? All I see is someone on someone crime which deserves justice. When in Elementary school, I never saw my black friends any lesser beings because they weren't my BLACK friends. They were just my friends. It was not until I was grouped into racial and identity politics when I needed to be kinder to black people for their historical oppression and hate the color of my skin for having "inherent privilege". Breeding and feeding the ideology to kids that there will always be some racist force against black kids makes these children feel more or less entitled based on the color of their skin and more or less fearful to take risks.

it's so profitably to call anyone racist now, universal spell. But there is the thing like statistics, for example black crime, unemployment rate and other. It's so easy to ignore real problems and focus on big and terrible racism, world has gone mad

I'm always insecure about talking about it or not because ppl are always saying that the black community doesn't need a white savior, but the way you did by donating was awesome matt!

Great! I´ts important to show support here and also engage in any way you can. Everyone can do something etc.
Also, BLM movement is giving me hope that I haven´t felt in a long time. And that hope is very important to feel. The overwhelming support from everywhere is just so amazing! I remember "day1" when this just started and a small developer on Steam (gaming community/store) voiced their support. Their forum/chat got somewhat spammed by those against BLM but they also did get a lot of support. I wrote a positive comment and silently wished that other corporations would follow with their openly support. The following day/night more and more of really big corporations also showed their support for BLM and anti-racism. And suddenly it was EVERYWHERE.
That for me was a magic moment.
The feeling that this time it is huge, not like last time a couple of years ago when not enough people cared. Also for the corporations this is important, sure some do it for the money but also that they see that the future is indeed less racist than now and they need to be a part of it, for their customers but also for their employees. And this is where change of our societies comes in! Beautiful!
And it seems to be working, change is coming (do the work and all that :)
Yet another awesome video Matt! Tears in my eyes!

Smh. Thank you for contributing to a racist, radical neo-marxist organization. One would think that you, a supposedly hard-working, productive and efficient individual (which is what I believed this channel to be about), appreciated such and would do enough research to understand the background and radical nature that is the organization BLM. It is in simplest terms a hate group. Such a shame that it has managed to suck in so many to an unworthy cause with pretext that should be at this point truthfully just platitudes.
I blame the media, for sucking in the lazy and willfully ignorant and turning them into useful idiots for an agenda that will soon be propagated. What better way to capture an audience by focusing on and blowing up the small handfuls of events that would precipitate destruction and invoke radical change for political gain, of which events are by no means indicative of all or even nearly most Americans.

I wish I could avoid topics on race because it's uncomfortable, but my blackness will never let the world see me as it sees you. Please Matt, remember to keep up the fight and be brave enough to have those conversations when white people say things that aren't cool, or make jokes. I have to be brave and disciplined every day (despite the challenges I face just existing), and subscribing to your channel has helped me do that. But as someone who looks to you and admires you as a person committed to personal development, I have to ask you as a loyal subscriber please keep pushing your self and those around you to be better!

My 7years old son asked me! why people are protesting in USA , i told blacks are not treated well due to their skin colour, He said what!!! Are they stupid, have they forgotten what Muhammad(p.b.u.h) taught them. I got silent because i didn't want to tell him that they hate Muhammad and they hate him and his mother as well

This was a way better and humbler video than most of the other virtue signaling brands and channels.
But I would urge you to listen to the countless black moderates and conservatives and hear their side of the story as well. The far-left narrative of the Black Lives Matter organization has silenced those non-leftist black people and they really need to be heard.

I still can''t believe that people do discrimination over skin color. what kind of sick people are those.what kind of religion and values they grew up with. I cant imagine those things happened in the past even. they have to protest and sacrifice. who think that having white skin make them superior. its really odd to me even mentioning black artist . for earth we are only human being .

Lord why people stop thinking. I want to express my position. All those slogans that people shouted that the life of black is important, do you think that the life of black is more important than any other? I say that all these protests led to death and violence. Is that right? There are so many videos where people smash stores, record people to death, beat them. Is that your justice? We all understand that that policeman did the wrong thing, but is it really possible to consider everyone else the same after that, is that right? I am not against protests towards changing the structure of the police’s attitude. I want to say that the destruction, as you say of the monuments of oppression, is really correct. That is, you want to say that we are all responsible for what our grandfathers and great-grandfathers did ??? No, it is not. And the destruction of cultural heritage, with the slogans that someone is more important, is nonsense. I live in Russia and whoever I talk to, many people think that such violence and arbitrariness only makes it worse. If you think that insurance companies will be able to help everyone, take off your pink glasses and better apologize to people who have suffered while protecting their property. People may have been dreaming of their store for years, and you fucking ruin them. In Russia, too, there was slavery and much longer than in America, but why, we do not go out and do not kill, and do not force to kiss the feet of people whose ancestors had slaves? Maybe because it's not normal. I do not understand people who do not see obvious violence and bullying. Floyd, was also a criminal, robbed, was tried. But he became a mission. God you .... Such hypocrisy is beyond my comprehension. I am disappointed.
