Young girl Zianna Oliphant delivers an emotional testimony to the Charlotte city council after the fatal police shooting of 43-year-old African American man Keith Scott, saying, ‘We need our fathers and mothers to be by our side.’

Zianna also said that African Americans are treated differently from other people in the US.

Officers claim Scott was armed, but his family say he was simply reading a book when he was shot.

  1. It’s not rocket science really is it? Make it illegal for every Tom, Dick and Harry to have a gun!

  2. You know what? I’m white and I’m just as afraid of the police. They shoot 6 year old white children strapped into the back seat of cars. I shouldn’t be afraid because I’m white? Wrong

  3. This young lady at 9-years old has courage and eloquence. It’s very sad to watch and FEEL her sadness. This is America, folks. No more unjust killings of citizens over stupid misunderstandings between police and those they detain. May calmness and a decrease in fear and anger prevail and put an end to this wave of killings.

  4. I don’t think it’s just blacks. It’s everyone nowadays. N if people would jus listen to wut the cops tell them most of this wouldn’t happen. The media is making this BLM thing way to big bcuz everyone life matters regardless age sex race.

  5. John Higgins John Higgins says:

    Why is it you never hear any young people putting heart felt videos like this out to the parents about being a thief, drug dealer, drug addict, alcoholic , hood rat, gangster, uneducated, hungry or homeless? just asking that question everybody scared of.

  6. So very sad that a 9 year old girl has to make a plea for this violence and fear to end. The police are killing an average of one black male per day lately! Something has got to change. JFK would be rolling in his grave. End the violence and hate. And don’t throw your vote away by either not voting at all or WORSE voting for TRUMP. Hillary is not perfect but she is the only answer. She will work towards solutions in black communities with the police and pushing her mandate on gun reform. It’s the only way to move forward.

  7. Kim Rice Kim Rice says:

    Interesting that when I put it to the most vocal and staunch opponents of the so-called Black Lives Matter Movement that what is basically being said is that Black Lives Matter, TOO, they all completely agree and the tone of the discussion changes completely. (“Is THAT what they’re saying? Well, yeah. They’re right, then”) Seems like a HUGE opportunity has been lost.

  8. Seems your present president not black he does’nt care about his color!!

  9. Lee A Miller Lee A Miller says:

    Don’t cry baby we are the very tip of the sword we go in harms way we got you on behalf of all African American dad’s I love you and no one will harm you. from new York to the southern delta to the bayou s of Louisiana.

  10. She was coerced or brainwashed.

  11. Promotion of gun culture in the name of fundamental right is the most ‘successful’ American gift of violence to the human race!
    Successful in the sense that America has successfully spread the culture of violence throughout the world through the deadly duo of gun culture and police violence by playing role model on the world stage.

    there is always Africa, try living there

  13. Cody Johnson Cody Johnson says:

    Police kill more white’s per year than blacks, why is nobody talking about that? The cops that are actually crooked are extremely few and far in between. 9/10 times when a cop shoots someone it’s because the suspect becomes belligerent and refuses to listen. Sometime’s people forget that cops are humans too and all they wan’t to do is make it home to their family just like everyone else. The worlds a crazy place and no one can be trusted nowadays. I’m sure if you were to experience what they experience day to day your outlook would be far different. Aside from all this, the bigger issue at hand is our government deliberately using these tragedies to incite chaos in America, it’s crazy to think our government had devolved so far, but as they say, reality is stranger than fiction. Just remember, at the end of the day we’re all brothers and sister, judge them not by the color of their skin, but by their actions. You’ll find the world isn’t as terrible as the TV would have us believe

  14. Lee Cooper Lee Cooper says:

    Only thing they need to do is listen too the commands of police officers and put hands up and obey like normal citizens do and nobody gets shot !!!!! Don’t be a smart ass,,,,, or wave your hands around and reach into jacket or pants or car !!! Obey the laws and nobody gets shot or hurt !!! That’s it !!! Plane n simple !!!!!!

  15. Sorry really it is obvious that the police doing bad actions against blacks

  16. Quit breaking the law ,police will leave you alone..

  17. I have had enough of it and I am white and live in U K. Obama should have done something about it.Needs a massive policy/training review.

  18. Steven Dukes Steven Dukes says:

    Well that just goes to show your racism will never end because assholes keep teaching it to their kids

  19. It not only the police it in the churches also..

  20. wow, remember how America went to Vietnam? this is the same. They want to promote racism now between blacks and whites since Muslims are already well established “terrorists” now and gullible idiots are buying into this crap. A girl cried back then who was daughter to he ambassador and had acting classes and now this. It is funny how educated and successful blacks are not subjected to this but only those who are criminals and live in a notorious neighborhood or fail to comply. Sure many innocents have died but so have the people white of color in the hands of idiot cops but its normal unless a white cop kills a black, then its racism and racial bias. People are buying into this crap because everyone wants to feel better empathizing with the victims and this is how the elites divide and conquer. Believe that whites and blacks are treated equally, believe that racism is real and then fight between each other while the only ones that profit from it is the corporate America keeping the citizens occupied with their own shit. Wake up people, idiots

  21. More White’s are killed by police yet we have a black Lives Matter movement. How bout not brainwashing this lovely young lady to believe it only happens to black people. Educate yes, but state the facts instead of slanting everything. This movement will not change a thing. Just cause more destruction in black communities. You cannot stop violence with violence.

  22. Rick Howard Rick Howard says:

    It is bad enough that children are seeing this and speaking out against it. There is obviously a problem that needs addressing in a better way. Violence by police is not a cure.
