One Man Stood Out Amid Milwaukee Destruction

Quinlan Bishop

In the wake of violent protest in Milwaukee, one man, Quinlan Bishop, captured the nation’s attention. Bishop’s interview with Fox 6’s Brad Hicks in front of a destroyed gas station in Sherman Park went viral and began a national conversation.

His message is simple. “We have to choose between right and wrong,” Bishop told popular radio show host James T. Harris last week.

“I can understand that things will happen to us every day of our lives… but we do have a choice if we’re going to react right or if we’re going to react wrong,” said Bishop referring to the protest. “If there was an agenda, it wasn’t a positive one, because nothing positive can come from destruction.”

The destruction Bishop refers to includes burning cars and buildings, attacks on police and media, and even murders. The rioting and destruction was so severe that Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke recommended that the national guard be sent in to intervene.

Bishop describes himself as a “Humble servant of the Lord” and has taken to social media to condemn violence. He is an advocate for peaceful negotiation to solve the problems in his community. He uses the hashtag #QBSpeaks when speaking or writing.

The most recent post from Bishop reads: “People, stop labeling human beings as animals because they behave in a manner that you don’t agree with. We don’t know what they may be dealing with. Pray for them. They need it. Misguided souls are what they are. Help them…” By posting this and other posts advocating non-violence, Bishop hopes that he can make his community a more peaceful and productive one.

  1. Trump put it best in asking them for their vote. “What the hell do you have to lose?”

    70 years of Democratic promises were topped off by the first black President and they are still where they have been kept. At the bottom.

    Please take a chance people. For yourselves. For your future.

  2. The Great Society was nothing more than a pathway to continued slavery for Black Americans. The democrat party was successful in rounding them up as a voting bloc lying to them just for their votes. Government became the “provider”, young black men were told they were no longer needed except to make more babies (voters). It is no wonder that we have so many angry black men. I hope one day they figure this out because the cycle is spiraling downward. We need more voices from Black men like Mr. Bishop, and our own J T Harris. There are lots more, but the MSM will not let their voices be heard, because the supply of democrat voters will dry up. What is good for America is good for all Americans. All Lives Matter! Especially the unborn!

  3. With “leadership” like Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton,black America is a rudderless ship adrift in a sea of recklessness.
    Burning,looting and violence is never going to accomplish anything for blank America.
    Somehow, somewhere along the path, black America never rose to MLK’s dream.

    • And that is the real tragedy, MLK may not have been perfect but at least he had a Dream, which is more than the jacksons and sharptons have! They just want to be worshiped by the black people and leftist politicians and of course,rake in the money.

  4. Prayer, Trust in God, Positive vs Negative, Right vs Wrong – in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous,without self control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. Are we there yet?

    • Just look around and Yes, we are there now. It’s nothing but Me me me, But have hope, there are many who are who,who,can I help? Doing that which is right and seeking others that are righteous. We may be few in number and definitely not perfect but we need to keep doing that which is right in God’s eyes. God Bless America!
