    I have not heard of this story until now and my heart bleeds for them. I am actually ashamed to be white after listening to to the anguish, distress and pain this family is being subjected too. From the bottom of my heart I pray that Justice prevails. I hope your family is well and the injustice and loss you have suffered is brought to trial against all involved. No family should ever have to suffer as you have done

    The era of racial supremacy is over but the guys have failed to admit a fact hard to crack.

    People have been tortured for four months on the pretext of the corona virus. For the last four months, people have been tortured under the pretext of mask. People have been beaten in the name of distance of 6 feet for the last four months .👉 people have died due to hydroxychlorquine medication in the last four months.👈 For the last four months, I was repeatedly saying that due to this medicine, people are dying in America and Europe. Actually this is a game, and this game has been played very cleverly by the leaders and practitioners. Nobody knows what is happening in the hospital. Now the truth came out in front of everyone, then the doctors cleverly changed the face and started blaming the leaders. I want to ask you, why have doctors given this medicine in excess to sick people? Will dead people become alive after doctors accept the mistake? Now you tell me what are the reasons behind not making the post mortem report public? No one knows anything about how death is happening. Only the leaders and doctors of political parties are aware of this. Politicians and journalists of any country have made public the post mortem reports of those who died? Do you have any post mortem reports of anyone dying, or not? Are you god?👉 Is the doctor and scientist miraculous, or God? 👈 You are saying that for 40 years this medicine is being given to malaria patients, so will you start giving this medicine to cancer patients also in future? Did God tell doctors and scientists that this medicine can cure every disease, and no one will die after consuming this medicine?

    So, apparently blacks are mistreated all over the world? I thought France was very tolerant and open minded about all races?
