And that's exactly what they're doing, because they think we're gorilla cousins. That's TRUTH!!!!!! They kill our babies, and they walk free as birds in trees. The Caucasus Cave Men Mountaineers are on an African killing spree in the dis-United States of Amerigo. I'll bet those Kopper Beater Uppers are feeling no remorse causing that that handsome 20 year old University of Virginia honor student to receive 10 stitches in his head. 3 Caucasoid Kopper Beater Uppers, 1 mother's African son.
