These people don't like "black" anything, I doubt if they like black shoes. When they finish arming themselves to the nines and point their guns in all of our direction, what are going to do? We're all going to DIE. They call Barack Obama and Michelle all kinds of women and men, gorillas, Silverbacks; have no respect for them whatsoever. They've called us everything in the book, shot our asses down in the street, hung us up trees; yet, when they go to war with other people of color, there we...

I think I'm actually burning-out on the number of Americans walking around in fantasy land while racist right-wing fascists are staging a coup d 'etat against the United States of America, the United States Constitution, American Laws, Government Agencies and the Rights of American Citizens.

All the other scientist that were brave enough to even question the truth of what the public was being told about 911 have been silenced. Since Neil DeGrasse Tyson has no intentions of being assassinated, being found dead from "an apparent heart attack" or "suicide", I guess he figures he's not going to stick his neck out for people who can't and won't save him if he does.
