In his testimony Friday, Rep. Cedric Richmond of Louisiana, chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, said Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s record on criminal justice is “entirely unsatisfactory for a country persistently struggling to hold law enforcement accountable for mass incarceration and police brutality.”

5 percent of the population (African American males aged 18 to 35) are responsible for over 50 percent of all rapes, murders, assaults and robberies in America. Out of the 12,000 annual murders in America, 6000 were committed by African Americans. 90 percent of those murders were BLACK on BLACK! Take your racist bull shit and shove it up your ass!

Look at the Banana of The Republican hearings . They pretend to be a country of Democracy. The Republican party is a national threat to Democracy. The Republican party is the RUSSIAN PARTY. THE Russians have been interfering and influencing United States of America since America thought it was a Democracy . They don't even Know It. 😃😃😃😃😃😃😃

Wow, I had no idea that so many outright racists watched PBS. Head back to Fox where your faults are counted as virtues. Leave real news to intelligent and decent people.

Black lives don't just matter!!! ALL lives matter

Neo Nanite · September 7, 2018 at 4:35 pm

We need not wait for him to take his seat in the court to see that judge Kavanaugh has record of bias toward the republican party and against civil liberties. Deny Kavanaugh this seat now!

Geo Rock · September 7, 2018 at 4:39 pm

Black Caucas are nothing but coon sell out liars depending on ignorant blacks to support them. I’m tired of racists always crying racism and acting as conservatives are nothing but white supremacists. All these brown people always flock to white Christian countries but yet try to destroy these countries outta hatred and racism. Go back to where you came from, you don’t like whites then gtfo white countries you losers.

Black Lives Matter! The concept of Black on Black crime is a myth. Yes, there is Black on Black crime just like there is white on white crime (the overwhelming majority of school shootings are carried out by white young men and victimizing mostly white people, yet this term doesn't even exist). Truth is we still live in very segregated country and people who kill tend to kill within their sorroundings regardless of race. There are many studies detailing this fact. We need to recognize what the argument of 'Black on Black crime' is a ultra conservative one intended to mute a conversation about police brutality and mass incarceration.

Well, you're saying that they run it like their unsisters ran their own Plantations , we know that it's a Whiteman's world, the Roots of evil walking this earth.

D Stew · September 7, 2018 at 4:50 pm

Why is it called the black caucus? I just hear whining, whining, whining all the time. Ever since the dawn of time there have been discrimination, slavery, barbarity… it is all disgusting really…part of what humans are. None of it is right but you hear blacks out of all the races continue to whine like this, continue to say they are oppressed, that cops are after them, that they don’t have the opportunity that others have. Too bad guys like this cannot be of just one race, be color blind and get on with all the opportunities that ARE really available to them.. makes me sick

Jeremy Serwer · September 7, 2018 at 5:37 pm

Trump supporters don't you worry, the good ol' boys club will get its Kavanaugh seat and we can all watch together as; The conservative court strikes down Legal and safe abortion(Abortions will still happen), Environmental protections for fragile eco-systems, Civil rights and religious pluralism. This is going to be amazing, trump and his administration will have the freedom to go where no US governing body has gone before. We can have full legal racist police actions W/O consequence. We can have Christianity for all and no other religions. We can have corporations literally raping and plundering the rest of the natural bounties we have left. trump will be given the chance to hold 60+%of america hostage for his own self serving agenda.
If you're not wealthy in trumps america you will definitely be thoroughly abandoned. We can finally have that Plutocratic Theocratic Autocracy that we have been hoping for since we began as a nation. Behold planer earth You're utterly and completely F'd and we will celebrate our own demise as we destroy all species and finally ourselves!!! Hallelujah!!

Serawyah Yisrael · September 7, 2018 at 5:37 pm

Cliff notes: if Congress doesn't do what it is duty-bound to do under the Constitution, the solution is to ignore the Constitution.

One thing I would like to say to that guy who speaking ,the black caucus, he really don't know what he's talking about ,if he knows his history ,he would know the black people were Republicans first ,not, Democrats,and how do I know that, because I am a black man ,and I know my history, the black caucus have not done anything for black people, and if you do not believe that looks at the black neighborhoods

Anthony Whelan · September 7, 2018 at 10:07 pm

A land that doesn't know truth from fantasy is doomed for disintegration.

Toolmaker · September 7, 2018 at 10:31 pm

In summation, "Us blacks are going to lose our hand outs and free moneys and favoritism. Don't vote him in"

TheViewFromUpHere · September 7, 2018 at 11:15 pm

The Republican party is legally certified as racist and vote suppressing since the 1981 Consent Decree. And with Trump and RNC actions the DNC has filed suit to extend it for another 8 years.
Shocking and embarrassing for the whole country.

Nothing matters. He will be confirmed with 4-6 democratic votes. That's the world we live in. Idiots are running it
