              1. ive never made one racist comment. not one. you idiots call anyone that doesn’t agree with you racist. liberal Democrats are the oppressors.

                1. you can’t even recognize them when they come right from your own fingers – your anger and hatred won’t sustain you – get some help

                2. Riddle me this bunker boy booster. How is a party with a minority voice in government oppressing you now?

              1. nothing racist was said , simple fact. you people are so pathetic and delusional, spewing the same lies and nonsense over and over again. a true simpleton

        1. wish i could like your posts. disagreement = racism = sickening and a dangerous trend.
          let’s not forget, “pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon”
          BLM / Antifa is dangerous.
          to ignore that fact is ignorance.

          1. Let’s not forget the famous BLM “What do we want? DEAD COPS! When do we want ’em? NOW” statement before the blacks started murdering by ambush the police everywhere

  1. Those who supposedly love science should apply the fields of statistics and demographics, which reveal that the BLM arguments lack foundation.

      1. I doubt you think Harvard is a credible source but just in case.
        “On the most extreme use of force — officer-involved shootings — we find no racial differences in either the raw data or when contextual factors are taken into account,” said Harvard economics professor Roland G. Fryer Jr.”

  2. Listening to the interviews- It seems that the main complaint is that there are few black people in Bend… Maybe ! But there are plenty of Hispanic- Asian- the occasional Eastern European.

    There are also organizations- activities- and school home stay programs that promote diversity.

    Just because blacks don’t want to live in CO doesn’t mean there is racism here- nobody is “promoting one race over another”- and that is the shear definition of racism.

    Z21 seems to be pushing a false narrative- presented by one of the stations two black reporters- I find it all a bit insincere !

    1. maybe blacks don’t want to live here. who knows why? why would it matter? what – are we to force blacks to live here? maybe we don’t have what they want? for those that are here, i’ve never once seen, heard or experienced any hatred toward them.

      don’t get this whole movement. it’s forced socialism and now what, a forced distribution of races?
