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...

But, however and whatever it takes...

What is wrong with us, are we all deaf, dumb and blind at the same damn time? We're in hostile territory through no fault of our own, and there's no way out. I don't know about you guys, but I've NEVER been in an all black environment. I've ALWAYS been surrounded by these wrinkled creeps telling me how...
