'I Yield My Time' Citizen Goes Viral During LAPD Public Zoom Call

'I Yield My Time' Citizen Goes Viral During LAPD Public Zoom Call

A public Zoom call hosted by the Los Angeles Police Commission that was planned to discuss the protests following George Floyd‘s death turned into nine hours of citizens demanding that the LAPD Chief of Police resign.

During the call, callers slammed the department for the LAPD’s response to the protests and demanded that Chief Michel Moore resign, after blamed protestors for the George‘s death.

Earlier this week, Chief Moore said people “capitalizing” on the protests and “looting” were just as responsible for the death of George as the officers who killed him. “His death is on their hands, as much as it is on those officers,” Moore said. He later apologized for his comments.

A citizen named Jeremy Frisch called into the meeting and he had some very harsh words for Chief Moore, saying that the LAPD is “slaughtering peaceful protestors.”

Each caller was allowed 30 seconds to say what they needed to say – and boy did Jeremy take advantage of every second.

“Black lives matter. Defund the police. I find it disgusting that the LAPD is slaughtering peaceful protestors on the street,” Jeremy shouted. “I had two friends go to the protest in Beverly Hills a couple days ago and the protestors were peaceful until the police showed up with their excessive, violent force shooting rubber bullets and throwing tear gas. Is this what you think of, protecting and serving? Because I think it’s bulls–t. F–k you Michel Moore. I refuse to call you an officer or a chief because you don’t deserve those titles. You are a disgrace. Suck my d–k and choke on it. I yield my time. F–k you.”

Jeremy Frisch‘s comments in the call are timestamped in the video.

Halsey Explains the Important Reason Why She Doesn't Say 'We' When Discussing Injustice Against Black Community

Halsey is explaining something very important about her experience.

The 25-year-old “Without Me” singer, who has been an active and vocal participant in the ongoing protests against systemic racism and police brutality following the murder of George Floyd, responded to a post claiming she “never claims” her black side on Tuesday (June 2). (If you didn’t know, Halsey is biracial.)

“Notice how @Halsey never claims her black side, but she ‘supports.’ Stop being ignorant. She’s never claimed her Black side. This is why I will NEVER support her. On her post she says ‘let black ppl speak,’ not ‘let our ppl speak.’ Nah, f–k her,” they wrote in a now-deleted tweet.

“im white passing. it’s not my place to say ‘we.’ it’s my place to help. i am in pain for my family, but nobody is gonna kill me based on my skin color. I’ve always been proud of who I am but it’d be an absolute disservice to say ‘we’ when I’m not susceptible to the same violence,” she responded.

Here’s how to help the Black Lives Matter cause.

Ashton Kutcher Says 'All Lives Matter' People Shouldn't Be Cancelled, Just Educated

Ashton Kutcher Says 'All Lives Matter' People Shouldn't Be Cancelled, Just Educated

Ashton Kutcher is explaining his thoughts about the term “All Lives Matter” amid Black Lives Matter protests nationwide against police brutality and systemic racism following the murder of George Floyd.

The 42-year-old actor and entrepreneur got emotional in a video posted to his social media on Tuesday (June 2).

“So, on Saturday, I posted a blackout of my social media channels, just posted BLM. And a lot of folks responded ‘All Lives Matter.’ And I want to talk about that a little bit because I don’t think that the people posting ‘All Lives Matter’ should be cancelled. I think they should be educated,” he said.

“We all agree All Lives Matter, but I had a really pointed experience tonight when I was putting my kids down to bed that lent the words for why Black Lives Matter. Usually, Mila and I put our kids to bed, we read them a book, and our daughter always get to go first. And tonight, as we were reading her book, my son says ‘Wait, why don’t I get to go first?’ And Mila said ‘Cause girls go first.’ And he said ‘yeah, but boys go first.’ And I looked at him and said ‘No, girls go first. You know why girls go first? For you and me, girls go first. And the reason why is, for some boys, girls don’t get a go at all. And so for you and me, girls go first,’” he continued.

“So when it comes to Black Lives Matter, I think what folks are writing All Lives Matter need to understand, is that for some people,” he went on, starting to get emotional.

“For some people, black lives don’t matter at all. So for us, black lives matter. So while you may have the best intentions in saying All Lives Matter, remember…for some people, black lives don’t matter.”

Here’s resources for how to help the Black Lives Matter movement.

Alec Baldwin Responds to Criticism for Promoting Woody Allen Interview on Blackout Tuesday

Alec Baldwin Responds to Criticism for Promoting Woody Allen Interview on Blackout Tuesday

Alec Baldwin is defending his decision to post on Blackout Tuesday.

The 62-year-old actor took to his Instagram on Tuesday (June 2) to promote his new interview with Woody Allen, on his podcast “Here’s the Thing.”

“Woody Allen’s new book, Apropos of Nothing, starts with a portrait of his father, a tough-guy World War One Navy veteran and onetime gunman in a firing squad,” Alec wrote on Instagram. “It’s the first of a series of surprising, fascinating stories from a life that went from working-class Jewish Brooklyn in the 1940s to movie sets in Rome and Paris. The book also addresses the accusation of an incident of sexual abuse leveled by Dylan Farrow. Allen and Alec cover it all — plus how he’s doing in the age of coronavirus — in this candid and wide-ranging interview.”

Social media users then took to the comments to slam Alec for interviewing Woody because of the sexual assault allegations made against him. They also slammed Alec for posting on a Blackout Tuesday, which is a movement encouraging social media users to stop posting so they can educate themselves on Black Lives Matter.

Alec then fired back, writing, ““In the course of this podcast, we have often booked guests that have either requested or required a specific posting date in order to promote a project. We make every effort to honor those requests. Allen is no exception. As for the perceived lack of sensitivity re BlackOutTuesday, I had no idea about this … national day of whatever.”

“The professional lives of some people cannot be put on hold at the whims of political correctness,” Alec continued. “I believe Allen is innocent and that is my right. Posting a black screen today or any other day, though a decent sentiment, is not an effective political stance. Voting, and working to enroll others to vote, is more … practical.”

Former President George W. Bush Speaks Out Amid George Floyd Protests

Former President George W. Bush Speaks Out Amid George Floyd Protests

The former President of the United States is speaking out.

George W. Bush released a statement on Tuesday (June 2) following the murder of George Floyd and nationwide protests in response to systemic racism and police brutality.

Laura and I are anguished by the brutal suffocation of George Floyd and disturbed by the injustice and fear that suffocate our country. Yet we have resisted the urge to speak out, because this is not the time for us to lecture. It is time for us to listen. It is time for America to examine our tragic failures — and as we do, we will also see some of our redeeming strengths,” he said.

“It remains a shocking failure that many African Americans, especially young African American men, are harassed and threatened in their own country. The answers to American problems are found by living up to American ideals — to the fundamental truth that all human beings are created equal and endowed by God with certain rights. We have often underestimated how radical that quest really is, and how our cherished principles challenge systems of intended or assumed injustice. The heroes of America — from Frederick Douglass, to Harriet Tubman, to Abraham Lincoln, to Martin Luther King Jr. — are heroes of unity.”

“Their calling has never been for the fainthearted. They often revealed the nation’s disturbing bigotry and exploitation — stains on our character sometimes difficult for the American majority to examine. We can only see the reality of America’s need by seeing it through the eyes of the threatened, oppressed, and disenfranchised,” he went on to say.

“That is exactly where we now stand. Many doubt the justice of our country, and with good reason. Black people see the repeated violation of their rights without an urgent and adequate response from American institutions. We know that lasting justice will only come by peaceful means. Looting is not liberation, and destruction is not progress. But we also know that lasting peace in our communities requires truly equal justice. The rule of law ultimately depends on the fairness and legitimacy of the legal system. And achieving justice for all is the duty of all,” he continued.

“This will require a consistent, courageous, and creative effort. We serve our neighbors best when we try to understand their experience. We love our neighbors as ourselves when we treat them as equals, in both protection and compassion. There is a better way — the way of empathy, and shared commitment, and bold action, and a peace rooted in justice. I am confident that together, Americans will choose the better way.”
