    ITA with this whole post x10000 and definitely peeped that as usual while the black men are trying their hardest to appeal to murderous Becks and the masses, the black women in the family (mom and sister) are focused on the real and uncomfortable that ended his life in the first place.

    Exactly. That’s why, IMO, this has nothing to do with age, grief or being an immigrant. This is a show of black men’s love and idolatry of white women. It apparently knows no bounds.

    This video is out of pocket.
    The verdict was guilty so the black jurors did what they were supposed to do. I'm in the minority on the 10 year sentencing but I think the judge did what she was supposed to do in that regard. If Amber Guyger had a white judge and jury, she would not have been found guilty and she definitely wouldn't have gotten 10 years.

    In Texas the jury decides the sentence or do you mean the judge as far as presiding over the whole case?

    Thank you for saying everything I wanted to say. I am literally flabbergasted. Has it really come to this? Is the siren call of Becky that powerful that Black men want to hug and be "friends" with their killers? As another poster said, I was too invested in this. I'm done.

    I don't disagree with this but how are we explaining the judge and the bailiff? Was that love or something else?

    My mistake I thought the judge did sentencing. I didn’t hear any complaints about the judge until the hug so I still disagree with the video.

    Something else...

    Judges are supposed to uphold the integrity of the bench by avoiding impropriety or appearance of it, be IMPARTIAL and not engage in politics...IMHO she did all of this

    Yeah, I agree- that was some BS answer. I promise you, if they were Jamaican, Guyanese,etc..., they would have hauled her mudda c**t all over the courtroom. Black Caribbeans are fully aware of racism but because there are barely any YTs in their country, they don't really FEEL it until they leave and come to the U.S, Canada, the UK, etc. As a first gen American with West Indian background, my parents fully equipped and prepped my sister and myself in the ways of YT folks, especially when we went from our very Black elementary school to a very YT middle school. So Bothom's parents and brother were on their religious zealot BS. Also doesn't excuse the American judge & court officer's from their mammying behavior.

    Little brother is supposed to be so traumatized that he's just a shell of himself. That's what mom and sis told us. I think he's just fine. He waited a whole year for her tearless apology. Great! Let's forget her disdain for black people that's probably just a mistake.
    His private words were, " Me and dad can't wait for you to get out. We will see you soon. I promise first chance I get I'll be right by your side. Don't you worry. Me, daddy and Judge Tammy gonna get you out of there. Because my brother, having had a hole RIP through his heart, hit a lung, tear through his diaphragm and his intestines and no doubt suffer a painful death as he struggled to get air while she lovingly provided a sternal rub, he would want this. Had he survived he'd be so eager to speak at our wedding".

    He's about to get paid for his "extraordinary " act of forgiveness. TV appearances, someone:s going to have the book written and the Hollywood movie to follow.

    Don't forget that she did tours/ speaking engagements talking about forgiving him. :rolleyes:

    I'm ok with not being nice or good or whatever this is called.

    @Jmartjrmd I have NEVER forgotten this case, it enraged me so. This side by side comparison needs to literally flood the media.

    I could not bring myself to click on the video of the judge, bailiff and Botham's brother as I knew I would implode. White controlled media LOVE this to justify and perpetuate the concept that everyone loves and adores whites' self-assigned 'superiority' so whites can literally do whatever, and it will 'be alright'.

    This psychological grip that holds so many captive under such blatant racism needs to be destroyed.

    I know there are many of all 'minorities' who are immune to this racist narrative that has been shoved down everyone's throats for hundreds of years, but the ones who consciously and subconsciously believe this racist stupidity, are obstacles to progress. And whites count on that.

    Something else... or maybe both? There’s a host of issues at play here. None having to do with age, grief, or immigrant status, imo. All having something to do with loving the white woman.

    I personally find the bro and dad most offensive. It’s their loved one that’s dead.

    True. I meant the immigrant part to apply to the fact that he didn’t consider the impact it would have on race and social justice issues.

    As for the hugging I don’t get it but I have some super Christian friends who do stuff that makes really feel like God must working through them because their actions defy logic or emotion...

    Of course but I'm never shocked when bm act like this. I'm shocked that this rat-faced murderer was somehow able to get these bw under her spell, too. One of the BW jurors did an interview this morning taking about how the prosecutors wanted 28 years but "I just couldn't do it. Amber Guyger will never be the same. She showed remorse and now she has to deal with this for the rest of her life."

    I've never seen anything like it.
