    I can't stand the state of Alabama and Mississippi. The most VIOLENT acts of crime were committed against Africans and ignored. People wonder why we are STILL mad, won't settle, and are still fighting for justice for so many things in 2018.

    I felt justice had been served. This type behavior makes me sick.
