Does this man's opinion matter?? Does it matter because he disagree with Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and the media??
Does he make valid points??
The only part I cringed at is when he refered to planet of the apes.
Please watch mos of the video to honestly debate.

I would like everyone's opinion.

I think he has some very valid points and I respect him for telling people how he sees it; especially since his feelings are very frown upon. He's probably called an Uncle Tom and he does receive death threats.

Why?? Did you even attempt to watch the video and listen to his opinion??
Do you know it's a black man who makes very valid points?? Points that should be debated and talked about??

Thank you for taking time out to watch the video and actually form an opinion on it.
I appreciate it.

I'm sure his opinion matters to him and it definitely matters to the media because it fuels the fire they hope to get rich off of. To the big picture no his beliefs don't matter and neither do mine, yours, Sharpton's or anyone else's. That kid will still be dead, that mother will have lost her son, it will still be a tragedy that a life is so easily taken and not important enough to investigate properly. The police force didn't think anyone would care about another dead kid and they were wrong.

Did his being a black man make his points more valid?

You can have 1,000 black men who tell you they've been mistreated by the police or their community and no one bats an eye. One black man said he's never experienced it and it must not exist, a lot of white people (especially those who deny racial bias) have a new black best friend.

Nope. Just that he has gone against what others think. He has a different opinion than most other have in the black community.
And yet, his voice is not being heard
