    We saw what happened in Zimbabwe and now S.A.. Coming to Amerika soon.

  • Perhaps they were referring to “Whitey Bulger” – you know, because these Africans are sick of mafia crime in the US….

      Acutally Whitey was a Murphya Leader and Meir Lansky was a higher up in the Kosher Nostra.

    “…one with a picture of Trayvon Martin with “Revenge” written in red, the other was a fist that said “Kill Whitey.”

    They ONLY do this because whites have played the coward for too long.

    Awe isn’t that sweet, this die-versity just warms the cackles of my heart.

    How many milliseconds passed before the local police chief rushed in front of a camera to say there was no evidence of this being a hate crime and it was an isolated incident with no connection to anyone or anything else?

  •  Worse than that.  Cotton balls strewn on the sidewalk leading to a black student center can cause psychological trauma.

    Meanwhile, I can step on, step over, or walk around cotton balls, and forget that I did within a few minutes.

      God forbid should you open a bottle of asperin in front of a black ad drop the cotton stuffed in the neck of the bottle.

      •  Are you thinking about a certain joke whose punchline is “it’s white, it works, and you must pick cotton to get to it?”
