    Head nod to Jay Z who today donated 1.5 million to the BlackLivesMatter charity. Sometimes you don’t have to say it to make a huge statement. Go Head Carter Family!!!!

    • I agree. And look, people at Foxnews want others who hate BLM. yes, there maybe a few in BLM who are acting up as with any organzation just like some cops act up; however, I think the MAJORITY in both BLM and cops are out to do what is right.

  2. Oh please, Beyonce did great. Also, you sound stupid Chris to say what Beyonce did was racist (once again, someone throwing that word “racist” around without knowing the real meaning of it). Even when people say “black power” which means to uplift a race of people who is discriminated compare to “white power” was use to degrade and say whites were superior to blacks. Also, Beyonce outfit was in homage to Michael Jackson as well.

    • Also, Bruno did a great job with his MJ moves and looking like MJ from the “Rock with you” video -Off the wall era. Cold play was not bad but just a little less excitment.

    • Tammy, stop being so naive. “Black power and white power” are both racist expressions. She doesn’t care about anyone but herself. It’s all about the money.

      • No, they are NOT the same expression. Clearly you know nothing of the two and seem like you do NOT want to know. As for her not caring about no one but herself, I think the girl is doing a great job in giving. Is she making money, YES, this is AMERICA and entertainment is HER JOB/CAREER just like you have a job/career. AMERICA is about MONEY; however, that does not mean she does not care. YOu sound silly. You want to blast her for doing looking like th Black Pathers YET you want say she does not care. You can NOT have both with your logic. And also, she was showing tribute Michael Jackson with the Jacket.

  3. “And even though Coldplay closed out the show, Beyonce won the night. She announced the “Formation” World Tour in a commercial immediately following her performance.”
    She also displayed her own racist feelings. The crew was dressed in homage to the Black Panther Party, at one point joining her in giving millions of viewers a black-power salute. Can you imagine if a white artist did the same thing? #RacistLivesMatter

      Chris, please learn your history. The black power salute is NOT a racist statement, but a political one. Do you think John Carlos and Tommie Smith were being racist?

      • Exactly. If you heard John Legend speech at the NAACP award, John hit it on the head. To sum up what John Legend was saying, “when you talk about injustice now, some people want to accused you of being racist (reverse psychology) on the issue.

      • Also, if you look at the reason for the Black Panthers. They were blacks who fight believe in “if you are armed with a gun, so am I”. In order words, Black Panther were NOT going to let anyone hit, spit, and mistreat them. The group did NOT go out thinking they were superior to another group and trying to discriminate and give injustice to others. Black Panthers were a group that were NOT going to take it IF anyone was trying to harm and treat them with injustice.

      You are just looking for an argument. Being proud of your Heritage is not Racist. Black power is a political term to denounce the racism that was and still is being pushed on black people. Not to make white people feel less inferior, promote segregation and bigotry like the term White Power. Her and Bruno Mars performance was just what the world needed to see and show that #BlacklivesMatter is the point. No matter how much people try white wash it or bring somebody down for being proud of their BLACKNESS. Their performance slayed. Get with the real Chris.

      • Exactly. And theire performances also show BLACKS KNOW HOW TO BRING IN EXCITMENT. Even the “white stations” that I have just heard are giving them the praise.
