“Kansas City survives shooting spree in 2020”

It’s not even close to being over, what idiot wrote that? We’ve had a shooting spree that’s been going on for nine years, just because there’s a lull in shooting for 24hrs doesn't mean anything other than the murderous blacks are re-loading.

Oh ones! The bounty narrative is bullshit!

As we have been telling you. Another hoax coming right up!

If there was ever any doubt about the dumbing-down of Americans, the Bachelor show serves as undeniable proof. Their target audience is white females.

There are an equal number of shows directed towards the black community. Judge Judey is a good example. Wendy Williams, another.

Typical IQ level around 40. Chigger/gimpy's is closer to 20.

Don Jr. is mentally broken from dealing with his father. Geesus, he interviewed Sr. a couple weeks ago and the shit was disturbing. That whole family is fucked up.
