There were no lynchings of black people in KS or any other state in our country. This is a myth that never happened. There is no evidence to back it up. Complete lies.

Regarding that OPPD Ofc. Black last 10-7. The busy beep while he was trying to key up! It about boils down public service. Decades of service only to end up dead, shitting in a bag or strung up by the media as the bad guy. Sir, you made it!

Emmy Winner and leading Marxist Democrat, Governor Andrew Cuomo, is a serial sex harasser.

Cuomo has now hired a prominent CRIMINAL Defense Attorney to defend him in the sexual harassment and murder of elderly nursing home residents.

Cannot believe Suburban women vote for creeps like Cuomo, Biden and Clinton who molest women and children.

Amazon is a fast paced running company. Blacks only do a fast pace if in a rolling gun battle. If a black driver delivers my package it might make it to steps going to my porch but as a rule it ends up along or on a retaining wall leading up to the steps. Brown and white drivers always seem to find the steps and use them to put the package on the front porch same as the UPS/FedEx guys do. Black people are slow and lazy, bitch all the time they are being treated unfair while doing 30 to 50% less work than their co-workers then bitch because they make less and make racial discrimination comments. Brown and white workers should claim racial discrimination for being forced to work along side them.
