The 34-year-old entertainer held a moment of silence to honor the lives of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and all the other people killed by police.

Bey projected the names of hundreds of the victims “and countless others” on the giant screen on her stage. She then broke out into an a capella version of her song “Freedom,” which you can watch below.

    Now lets watch Fox News and Pierce Morgan claim she is race baiting here. Lets not forget about Tomi Lauren (what ever her silly name is) whose is going to be quick to remind Beyonce her ancestors freed her ancestors.
    I’m actually worried from black in the US. They should feel safe to walk, drive etc but no.
    Why ? Because of melanin in their skins ? Thats makes them so dangerous yet in Europe things like that don’t happen.

    Wow, what a surprise. This is how things roll in 2016, as we have seen when Obama stepped in with the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown shootings and ordered a federal prosecution in both cases, costing taxpayers millions. And in both cases Obama lost.
    Did Obama, any Democrat politician or celebrity social activist cry in outrage when college student Gilbert Collar, naked and unarmed, was shot and killed by a cop? Any outrage when an unarmed white teen, Dillon Taylor, was shot and killed by a cop as he walked out of a 711 (on video)?

    In both cases, the cops were cleared and not indicted. No black lies matter, Beyoncé , Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson or Obama pining in. Why? Cuz the victims were white and the cops were black and hispanic.

    Did one of these fucking loser celebrities tweet last week about the senseless death of 19 year old Dylan Noble, who on 24 Jun was gunned down while lying on the pavement by 4 Fresno Cops, a unarmed, teen, no priors, but hey let’s cry for child sex offender, cause he’s black.

    Did she have the names of any of the unarmed Latino and white guys who have been gunned down by police or are victims of police brutality? No, of course not. Their lives don’t matter. So much for equality.

    Stop deflecting from the issue at hand. Just because black lives matter, doesn’t mean other lives do not. That’s not what the Black Lives Matter movement is implying. Currently however, black lives are the ones being targeted in startling numbers. What part of that don’t you understand? It’s not a competition, it’s a crisis.

    O’ please shut it, You’re just black race peddler, who like a clock comments on any and every post that you can race bait or whine black victimhood.

    Everytime a black person is shot by a cop and almost every high profile case they were all criminals with records ( no innocent victims) it makes national news, while numerous cops in same period have killed a white/Hispanic it’s just ignored up the media & celebrities. What you racists don’t have is facts or numbers because if looked at the facts in 2013 alone more double whites were killed by cops then blacks, but blacks were involved in majority of all gun crime and 52% of murders.

    Where was Beyoncé, forget about, her how Obama?? the President of the whole country not just black people when 19 year old Dylan Noble, a unarmed teen was shot four times in the chest by 4 Fresno cops last week. No comments from Obama or the media or celebrities… Why cause they can’t exploit black victimhood and he was a white teen, victim wasn’t the right colour for leftist to cry over.

    Bitch, please. Those stats mean nothing if the proportion of victims based on population size isn’t factored in. Black people are disproportionately killed based on population size. The numbers are significant. These people are killed because they are black, NOT because of their criminal records. Besides, no criminal record warrants a cop not following due process. Racists like you get mad when black people stand up for themselves, your egos can’t take it. The fact that people like you are pissing themselves because they are being called out on their bullsh*t means we’re doing something right. The only one crying here is you, ya bitter bitch.

    Bey kisses her child and walks out the door to make her $.
    A police officer kisses his little children and stops to pray to God that he will be able to see them again.and goes to put his life on the line for very little $. Criminals have made it a war by believing they are above the law.
    If there were no laws Bey, those criminals would come to your house to take what they think they deserve. ..and who will you call for protection.
    Get your priorities straight and stop trying to create wars and start supporting laws and morals. They are vital to everyone’s survival.

  • Mona

    At a “black lives matter” protest 10 police officers have been shot and three are dead. Why isn’t JustJared reporting THIS??

  • JEN

    List the names of children who are growing up without a parent just because they were a police officer…..(ps ) it will need to be a long song.
    Oh and race will not be a factor. Sorry.

  • VanityInsecurity

    way to capitalize on what is going on.. celebs propagate this kind of violence like whats happening in Dallas right now.. this filthy b*tch should be ashamed of herself.

  • Von

    Bitch, how relevant is population size if your 13% of it but commit 52% of all murders in the country, then factor in all crime in America and blacks are 5 times more crimal then anyone else.
    So who the FUCK will be interacting more with cops in violent situations that would involve weapons.
    What are the most dangerous, violent cities in America .. Hint they’re ALL BLACK MAJORITY CITIES.

  • Von

    No , just like Obama wouldn’t , they are the protected by national media and too many dumb people who have been all indoctrinated in victimhood agenda culture . That will destroy and are destroying America.

  • LaCroix

    Honestly who in the hell would pay to see this monkey shake her ass?

  • jh7058622

    How many serial killers are suburban white men? Majority are. Does that mean we need to start mowing them down at alarming rates?

  • jh7058622

    I am not worried about color. I’m worried about the justice system constantly not being able to give anyone due process because a overzealous cop kills the accused in cold blood before their day in court.

  • VanityInsecurity

    you can’t enlighten truly ignorant scum of the earth cretans. stats mean nothing cus’ she’s too damn illiterate to even understand stats.

  • VanityInsecurity

    LOL there are way more black criminals then serial killers nimrod.

    “Some criminologists think we could be simply confusing race for poverty or inequality: black people tend to offend more because they tend to be more disadvantaged, living in poorer urban areas with less access to public services, and so on.

    If you control for deprivation, people of different races ought to be similarly predisposed to commit crime.

    This study of violent crime in deprived neighbourhoods in Cleveland, Ohio, found that reductions in poverty led to reductions in the crime rate in exactly the same way in predominantly black and white areas, suggesting poverty, not race, is the biggest factor.”

    It doesn’t matter what race is committing the most crimes. Innocent people should not be shot for no good reason right on the spot. Even if they have committed past crimes still shouldn’t be gunned down unjustly. Who feels safe in an environment where police can just gun down people? A kid playing with a toy gun should not be gunned down. There is nothing you can say about that. Nothing.

    The gov/poilce has pit blacks against black in the past, its no secret. The gov/police has planted drugs in their communities, increased crime in their areas, demolished up and coming black businesses. Black people have been oppressed in every way. They *want* people to think that that cities with a black majority are “dangerous, violent ” Because this gives them a reason to mistreat black people… saying they’re dangerous, blah blah. NO they’re not ,not by nature.

    So… the term criminal is so broad. Mass murderers are far more likely to be white. Point being what does that have to do with them being able to have a judge and jury. Everyone deserves due process.

    And you claiming intelligence when all you’ve done this entire conversation is name call… bless your heart.

  • Magyar Zoltán

    Because they lives does not matter to them. But who they are calling when someone broke into their home or trying to hurt them the police.

  • Philipp

    Oh shut up, they’re killing innocent black people! If they’re doing their jobs for protection, then why are they shooting people who didn’t commit a crime?! Sit your racist ass back down!

  • Gina

    Did you pull those stats from your ass? Anyone with half a brain knows that black people are given harsher punishments for committing the EXACT same crimes (and even lesser crimes) than white people. A lot of times white people are not even punished at all, while judges throw the book at a black person for committing the same crime. Your bullsh*t stats are skewed by a racist justice system. So educate yourself before you come at me with some BS. You’re still the uneducated bitch in this situation.

    Well done Beyoncé!! Show those whities what you got
