Ellen DeGeneres taped the first episode of her talk show since the George Floyd protests erupted around the country, and she dedicated her time to discussing Black Lives Matter and the need for white people to speak up against racial injustice

She spoke first to the show’s resident dancer, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, who told her that getting called out on social media is a necessary discomfort for educating oneself in this moment. “You have people that can call you and, from a place of love, say, ‘Yo, I saw what you were trying to say, but next time word it this way, because this,'” he said. “And you know it’s coming from a place of love rather than, ‘We’re gonna tear a celebrity down.’ We don’t have to worry about that right now.

Ellen also invited Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on, who outlined her discussions with local activists in her city to work toward racial justice. “We have articulated our grievances, we’re angry, but now we’ve gotta formalize it, so that we’ll know what the point of satisfaction is in this country, and there’s so much work to be done,” she said. Bottoms mentioned collaborating with, sharing civil rights documents that she had pulled from the Sixties. “What I said to him is, ‘We’ve gotta leave this conversation and create a true framework.

“The person sitting next to you in a cubicle or on the bus or on an airplane — if they have skin that looks like mine, we are literally in a different movie,” he said. “And it’s so hard to believe that. You don’t get to the point where a police officer could literally kill a man in broad daylight — and in his own mind think he was doing something good — if you hadn’t had a whole bunch of other disrespects and contempt for black life that were never checked along the way.

Sad watching lefties trying to out-left each other.

I wonder if she's paid her staff yet. This isn't sincere. She's a phony.

And all from the safety of her gated Mansion, how brave , did she also throw money around ? Or Maybe did her Talk show competition speak up or donate? Its not Authentic and its see through , excuse me while I go Barf. Did she do a dance skit ? Hypocrite !

is she still using scabs?

Anyone notice the creepy guy in the garden background and the bespectacled mop'head'? 👀👀

And she chose to discuss it with a man who, after trump made a speech with coherent sentences, declared him presidential. Low bar, TheEllenShow.

Atlanta officers charged with assault after video of them using stun guns on black students6 Atlanta police officers were charged on Tuesday after bodycam footage showed them using stun guns in the detainment of a young black man and woman who were in a car during protests on Saturday night. NBC is a racists media. This media really wants to create a civil war between all the races to destroy America. Boosting against any race especially minority is considered racism. You just did it. Thank you Justice. Now clean up qualified immunity laws, force police pensions and police unions to pay liability suits, and close other egregious loopholes so there's total accountability for abuse of police power. We can do better.
