  1. WHAT ELSE????? Says it ALL….Lord Help US cause you wasting your breath. Better Black Men before you has spoken and said the same thing. And the reaction they have gotten is “WHAT ELSE?” Black folks and Hispanics these are your LIBERALS. WAKE UP!!!!!! The truth is in WORDS….and the silencing is their actions.

  2. Wow! Potent words well-spoken!!
    IMO, America is not singular in it's refusal to acknowledge its sins and evils. I have lived in three countries (USA, Australia and Norway), and every country thinks it's the best in the world and has done no wrong, despite it being rather untrue. The evils of colonialism, imperialism, and racism are unfortunately widespread. The genocide and forced assimilation of indigenous peoples around the world and how little is really done to acknowledge it is a prime example.

  3. "This is us ….. we bear the brunt of the legends and myths", powerful. And how do you respond to this? "What else"??????. Nothing to see here keep it moving?????

  5. It's too easy for the left to throw blame on president Trump , listen to Beto and Warren , kamala, All are doing the blame game that's ok it just makes me run faster to the right and what goes around comes around .

  6. I just don’t get it “ .
    I was invited to play a round of golf at a private country club and while there , I felt the snobs “ . I watched one man conduct himself like he was the owner of the club.
    I blew him off so fast , his head almost spun off .
    What I WANT “ no one is gonna stop me from getting it but ME .
    And I look at all the black folks and the Latino and the Asians and I say to myself, what’s the problem ?
    Theses folks live just like me “
    They send their kids to the same school as I send mine “
    And I just don’t see the racism.
    I once asked my good Asian and Latino friends about racism and they roll their eyes and quickly discard the notion that there is any , AT LEAST IN THEIR LIVES.
    I just see a lot of folks wanting something for nothing.
    The racist will eventually be weeded out and rightly so but this mind set of always blaming others for your misfortune or better yet “ your mistakes or your laziness ?
    That’s on you !

  7. I am 70, an Italian/American NY white lady who grew up in NYC. My husband is 75: from Mexico. We have friends of many ages, colors, faiths and persuasions. The longer I live the truer this gets – it is up to each person, each INDIVIDUAL, to treat others with kindness, genuine regard and caring. Just imagine how the world would work if we just… did… THAT!!!

  8. All Americans should be proud of our President Trump, he has Vision, strength, and courage. God Bless the Trump Family.

  9. I do not need to be “set free from being white”. This is poisonous and comes from a place of anger and retribution seeking, and not progress and construction. All people from all races need to be set free from the evils that lie underneath their surface. Hatred racism and bigotry is not exclusively a white problem. I grew up in the Bronx NY being one of the only white kids in my school raised by a single mother and we had no money. If I learned anything there it was that all different races have the potential to harbor hatred towards people who are from different cultures. Being white is not a unanimous sentence of guilt. If you believe that, you should realize your own hypocrisy.

  10. He said what I've been saying, but with 100% more eloquence than I could have on my best day. It is not about Trump. 60 Million people voted for him. Forget that Mrs. Clinton had 3 Million more votes than him. IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A LANDSLIDE. But like Donald Glover said………..THIS IS AMERICA. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYOjWnS4cMY This right now is who we are until the change. Most of the time, change comes very slow. Sometimes kicking and screaming.

    My Condolences to the families in El Paso Texas and Dayton Ohio. And to the 4 people who were stabbed to death in California. And for the more to come………….

  11. That's what empathy looks like. Not a person who is reading something someone else wrote for him off a teleprompter trying to act like he is not a racist.

  12. "We're trying to convince white folk to embrace a history that might finally set them free from being white." Can someone explain to me what this means?

  13. Goes to show how rare mainstream actually speak TRUTH, regardless how deep the cut. Eddie, spoke the underlining truth that America continues to push under the rug.

  14. The only subject worth discussing in future debates and policy discussions is how to end white supremacy in the US.

  15. The only subject worth discussing in future debates and policy discussions is how to end white supremacy in the US.

  16. I love Eddie’s expression “Set them free from being white”. It speaks to just how differently whiteness is seen from any other race. You can be Afro-Latin but it only takes “one drop” to take away whiteness. Whiteness is and always has been exclusionary, meant to separate the superior from inferior. And being set free from being white is to be set free from hate hate that cast it.

  17. Left them speechless and all she could say was, what else! Like always the truth was said today, but not in this manner and at this stage. Well said.

  18. He makes a valid point. Nobody ever wants to admit their wrong. Break away from the prison called race. We are constantly hoarding on to the same perspectives of life due to our skin color or how we were raised.

  19. The thing all of you are missing is the scriptures again#!!! NOT EXPLANATIONS of MANKIND!!!! DUETEROMY 28:50, EZEKIEL 35:5. YES WENT TO THEUR SCHOOLS TO BE FILLED WITH THEIR KNIWKEXGEBUT I GIVE MY PEOPLE GODS K IWLEDGE WHICH HAS BEEN LONG BEFORE ANY CAME I TO THE UNIVERSE. HOSEA 4;6. My people are drstroyed for a lack of KNOWLEDGE OF TRUTH THE LAWS STATUES AND COMMANDMENTS !!! NOT THE WORLD!!!! THE WORLD IS AT ENMITY WITH THE MOST HIGH GOD YAHAWAH!!!! SEE MOST OF YOU INDER ESTIMATE THE MEN OF THE LORD!!!!! WE ARE DRIVEN BY THE HOLY GHOST!!!! AS IT IS WRITTEN. ACT 1:8. John 14:26. SEE REAL POWER IS OF THE MOST HIGH WHICH IS KNOWLEDGE!!!!! YOUR OPPRESSORS ARE YOUR ENEMIES !!! ISAIAH 49:26, 60:14 PSALMS 106:42. LEARN WHO YOU ARE NEGROES!!!!! SEE THESE ARE THE CURSES THAT CAME WITH BEING DISOBEDIENT TO THE MOST HIGH. TRUMP IS DOING WHAT IS IN HIM FOLKS!!! THAT GOES FOR ALL OF YOU!!!!!! WHATS IN YOU WILL COME OUT OF YOU!!!! Matthews 15:18. SHALAM TADAH RABAH

  20. Come on people dont. EVER think USA is afraid of its AWARENESS OF HATRED !!! YOUR BEEN BAMBOOZLED!! TOO MANY NEGROES THINK THEY ARE AFRICANS. NO WE ARE HEBREW ISRAELITES JEWS !!! NOW THATS WHAT YALL ARE AFRAID OF TELLING AMERICA THAT THEY STOLE YOUR IDENTITY AND HERTIAGE TO GIVE TO THEIR PEOPLE!!!!!! LETS GET IT. JEREMIAH 17:4. YALL NEED TO COME REAL!!!!!

YOU IN THOSE CHURCHES LISTENING TO THESE LOST UNEDUCATED PASTORS WHO PREACHING WHEN LAZARUS DIED. MARY WEEPED!!!!

YOU WILL HAVE TO STAND AND TAKE DEFENSE AGAINST THESE FOLKS TGEY HAVE NO REGARDS FOR YOU STILL TO THIS DAY!!!!!!! DUETEROMY 28:50.

  21. His words… eloquent, simple…yet so PROFOUND!! Especially when people have ‘LIVED IT’!! This is America sadly…still!

  22. The BLOOD goes to the MEDIA for 3 yrs vomiting HATE,RACIST,VIOLENCE,LIES,FAKE NEWS. IF ITS NOT TRAGIC ENOUGH, CNN WILL STAGE IT. MAXINE YELLED 4 VIOLENCE & MEDIA RAN IT 24/7. SQUAD YELLS EVERYTHING & EVERYONE IN USA IS RACIST & MEDIA FOLLOW THEM AROUND. ONLY THING MISSING IS THE OVERHEAD LIGHT BRAINWASHING! HOW FAR CAN YOU PUSH PEOPLE BEFORE THEY BREAK? YOU GOT WHAT YOU AND THE DEM 2020 WANTED-A SOAPBOX. IT IS NOT PRES TRUMP-ITS YOU, YOUR LIES, RUSSIA LIES. EVERYTHING YOU REPORTED WAS A LIE. HOW MANY HAVE TO DIE BEFORE YOU STOP? YOU ARE NO LONGER JOURNALIST-JUST ACTIVISTS FOR DEMS VIOLENCE. THEY COVET ANTIFIA,MS-13, ILLEGALS FIRST, (HOW LONG CAN YOU STEAL FROM AMERICANS TO PAY YOUR PRECIOUS ILLEGAL VOTERS AND NOT EXPECT TRAGEDY?) SLEEP WELL

  23. Clearly getting rid of racism is going to take a lot of work. If you don't want to do the hard work do the easiest part. Don't vote for racism.

  24. He spoke exactly what I have been thinking and analysing… He spoke the BITTER truth look at those white people faces they are not comfortable 😂

  25. Rampant Raving Lunatic Left, you are are the MAIN Cause of the El Paso Slaughter,
    Encouraging No Borders and your Covert Racism, you turned me conservative,
    As I don’t suffer Fools and Liars MS13NBC🤥👹👺💩💩💩

  26. Like CNN this conditioning “News” organization is full of instigative reporting. They use to run the apprentice on this channel? And they made a ton off the back of Donald Trump & now they betray him and their right wing audience by lying about him Habitually? There’s definitely something wrong with this picture.

  27. What am I hearing? So there is now a collective punishment of calling everyone a racist. When these people voted for Obama twice they were not racist then. Strange that.

  28. "WHITE PEOPLE HAVE A VERY, VERY VERY SERIOUS NEUROLOGICAL PROBLEM, A PROBLEM THAT THEY HAVE TO SOLVE" .. LEAVE US BLACK FOLKS OUT OF IT".

  29. He is right but he right out of the box started blaming whites, the tea party. He became another racist fire starter.

  30. One should put thought in what is clearly revealed in the anchor's "What else?". For me, it was instant affirmation of what the man spoke of. "It just don't come off".

  31. So so well said. White America please accept and embrace this fact, so that WE can move forward as a country. Until YOU ALL do WE will continue to suffer

  32. For those criticizing the "what else?" comment at the end, I think you really need to hear the comment in the context of the whole segment of the show and other show segments in the past. I'm a bm and a regular viewer of the show and she is one person who I think really gets what he was saying. I think it was almost her own way of saying "amen". So many other host would have cut him off, redirected, and never given him that platform…or time.

  33. This isn't the first time Professor Glaude has been this passionate. Actually everytime he been MSNBC he brings heart,wisdom and empathy to their shows

  34. Her whole facial expression said it all. She was not even listening. And her comment at the end, "WHAT ELSE?". He spoke truth on ever topic almost. What else did he need to say. He summed it all up.

  35. I don't blame Nicole for her "What Else?" comment after Eddie's beautifully stated comments. Really, there is NO words that can compare to what that man said. There was nothing she could have said that could have added to Eddie's words. So, Nicole, you tried, but it wasn't your fault.

  36. This is US? Us who? This is what happens, when you are in the midst of your enemies, the worst of the heathen. "Black people" are looking for justice from the unjust, we are looking for peace, from those who have never shown themselves to be peaceable towards us anywhere upon the earth. We continue to charge Europeans with racism and bigotry. The correct charge is this…THEY ARE UNRIGHTEOUS and know NOT YHWH. All that they do, is against all of his commandments. Yet, to the children of Israel scattered throughout the diaspora who wear the curses of Deuteronomy chapter 28……he is repaying us ( the children of Israel) to our face and we are bearing witness to his Testimony. Some of us are too deaf and blind to realize and recognize what we are seeing and hearing. It's time that we return back to TORAH. The instructions for us to get out of this quagmire is in DEUTERONOMY CHAPTER 30.

  37. Wow. Back in 1911 a white governor of Louisiana said that the "Italians are worse than the blacks" and they lynched the Italians. Its human nature to be racist/tribal. Anyways, Italians then worked hard and eluded from the racism from the Irish and English Americans and eyes turned back to the conspicuous blacks. If colored people don't exist, whites will be racist against each other claiming whose more white. Africa decades ago has had ethnic tension within them. India has had religious and ethnic tensions within them. And even in middle East. And all of them is related to =who has more resources allocated to them".. it's a science we haven't explored yet I think.. We are humans but we are also very tribal in nature. It's difficult and takes work to transcend that. Best thing I can tell all Americans : with not emelanin and without melanin :white black Latino Asian native etc are focus on self improvement and take responsibility for your life and succeed ethically. When you have success and you contribute to the country, racism ceases or diminishes. So give to your families, and country valuable knowledge, truth. Transcend your biological psychological glitches

  38. Racism is passed down from generation to generation because it is the family heirloom that they live by because they have nothing else to give but hate

  39. Facts. But I feel we just have to deal with it and 3 to 4 generations will talk about how America coped with demographic changes. At least I hope we've moved beyond the notion of a new civil or race war.

  40. I was saying the same thing. It's easy to blame Trump, but these mass shootings have been going on since before him; since President Obama, even since the 1990s. I will say that Trump doesn't seem equipped as a leader to handle the situation nor to console our nation during these times; we are on our own. He disrespectfully forces himself in at hospitals where the patients have openly declared that they DO NOT want to see him. And his hands are tied as far as gun reform, because he is in the NRA's pocket. You can say they helped put him in power, so he is indebted to them. They bought him with lobby money during the election, so nothing of significance will be done, even though we all know there is a simple solution.

  41. Now he is speaking REAL TRUTH…things is BLACK PPL have been saying this ALLLLLL along!!! White privilege is what’s destroying this country and only white people can fix it! Yeah so HEAVEN HELP US!

  42. Imagine when thay freed the slaves thay gave them the best education of the day maybe a cure for cancer and other decease would have been found who said only white people can do it u reap what u some this country lost out on greatness 400 years ago

  43. Was that “lord help us” at the end in response to Nicole asking “what else”? Not bashing Nicole but did she understand what he said or what she just heard? She did seem engrossed in what he was saying and maybe wanted to hear more and didn’t know what else to say. But I’m not sure responding “what else” to what he just said applies.

  44. America is afraid to face it's truths because if it did, it would no longer be able to feel innocent about its freedoms.

  45. America is like a selfish master it wants it's "whiteness" but it doesn't want to give others freedom and the same liberties that it controls. Why would it want us to integrate then? Instead it want to control all the resources to keep us in indentured servitude.

  46. Lord help us! That what else took me out 🤣🤣 she was shook didn’t know what to say. Lord help us! And bless her heart.

  47. Wow! Here I am, an almost 60 year old black man, being brought to tears with just plan TRUTH from Eddie Glaude, Jr. If only more of us understood how important those word he spoke are, this country could some day heal.
