These jokes and heartlessness is so sad I knew Emmitt personally and life didn’t deal him a great hand after his career, whether he was black white or brown there’s no need for the hateful comments on black people being killed or murdered. I won’t throw stones all I have is my condolences to his family and my prayers are with both families. Some of you guys need a heart transplant because the ones you have has turned to stone. Every time an article pops up about a black person the comments section is sickening sometimes it’s best to say nothing.
