    Oh bullshit first of all she doesn't have the right to destroy or deface public property that is paid for by my tax dollars. Secondly if you read the FAQs her main concern should be being killed by another black person.. White supremists are one in 1 million I've lived all over this country never met one. Stop falling for the media hype it's bullshit these people are dumbasses

    How many times has she been beat up or saw someone beat up or lynched? My guess is never. Taught to blame someone else....anyone else for the problems in our Country....treat everyone with respect and admiration, for we all have something to offer....teach the ignorant, speak up about what you believe....this is great, but realize our Country is different then it was in 1776, 1812, 1848, 1865, 1876, 1890s, 1913, 1930s, 1950s and even 1999....we grow, teach and learn from each other....work with each other, not against each other.

    Fun fact most of the slave were owned up north or by northern families due to the wealth. So unless you owned a plantation and had lots of money most of your southerners didn't own slaves because they were to poor and they worked their own farms.

    Can't argue with that truth or part truth. Frustration is a powerful motivator.maybe we are all to lazy to fight until we find some sort of comfort level . nothing is free ( saving God) Its a give and take. All this on the heels of the 1st minority president.

    Claims not to be racist but calls others out as being racist while defending her racist acts.

    Well throw all your money away as well. The American currency might as well be baseball cards with slave owners on them.
