Wtf happened to riverside.
20 years ago their apartment complexs were NICE and all white,just like the rest of the town..NEWSFLASH....young white girls,don't fall for the negros jive-game!! That is if you don't want an std,would like to keep your cute Lil car,in that condition,like to keep any money that you might have,value your credit and credit card's,value your self esteem, like the relationship you have with your family,don't care to have every orifice on your body violated-including having your face used as a backstop for high-pressurized projectile-black-baby badder.worse yet, having a black baby,then turning around and realizing,your black boo is nowhere to be found...and ultimately if you value your LIFE,because believe it-they will take it away from you,for any variety of reasons,just like you were a piece of garbage. They will get rid of you when they've bled you of all the reasons they have found for keeping you around-RECOURSES-are depleted.Your chances of survival will drop sharply, if you decide (too late) to start sticking up for yourself,making a fuss,calling parents,big brothers And ultimately, if you should threaten the negro with Calling The POLICE..Well sweetheart,there's a very good chance that the next place your father will see you ,is at the Morgue, identifying your body!!

I didn't peck all this out for fun and unfortunately,my target readers,chances are won't be perusing tkc,but if it reaches out to one confused-low self-esteem, white girl,AND she heeds this warning, I'll have done something.
