    Staffers Walk Out Of Congress In Protest Over Brown And Garner Cases

    Dozens of congressional staff walked out of the Capitol Thursday, gathering on the steps to make the hands-up gesture that has come to symbolize frustration with the deaths of two unarmed black men.

    On Thursday afternoon, dozens of congressional staffers walked out in protest of the recent grand jury decisions failing to indict the two officers who killed Eric Garner and Michael Brown. The result was an incredible display of solidarity, with staffers raising their hands in the air to invoke Brown's "hands up, don't shoot" image. See the photos below:

    The reparations movement is just a covert ploy to make some weak Blacks look strong on liberation. If Black lives matter then why isnt Conyers pushing for the rich elite, which he is a member, to develope African American communities? And when the reparation check comes we will pay them back. Its a all big front for cowardly traitors.
