  • I agree with gp so here is a start. Watch the following video, by a black man, and tell me how much change would happen if they followed his advice.

  • Nothings gonna change unless the 80% of whites that are not against blacks and the 80% of blacks that are not against whites get together for real change. The white media, politicians, and the black leaders will never let this happen. They divide and insite so they can keep their power. And so it goes, on and on and on?
