i'm glad the UN spoke out on this. The case and verdict is 100% BS and the world needs to see how we are treated. Maybe the US needs to be 'reviewed' independently like many countries in the Middle East.

Well, nothing new here. I have been reading about this barbaric sexual predatory cultural behavior for years. This type of sickening pathetic practice of rape and pedophilia is pandemic throughout black Africa. Sad as it is, there are some Negroes willing to give them a free pass and look the other way. You don’t wanna look bad in front of the white man (as if they don’t already know)……!

If the kids are being sabotaged in grade school then what do you expect? How many children find grade school boring? I can't recall a single interesting book provided or suggested by any of my grade school teachers. But when I started reading science fiction on my own my mother told me they were "something crazy". I loaned a book to a Black woman I was trying to hit on written by a famous Black female SF author. I think it is her best book.
