    What is wrong with these parents ! Teaching their kids to kill and rob !
    And our politicians : spending time on the death penalty , then marijhiana reform,
    then gay rights !! ( gays should not receive any government assistance !
    they are dysfunctional people ! why should the taxpayer pay for this ! )
    We need the FBI and national guard to sweep the city !
    Jesse Jackson has never done anything positive for the black community !
    ( what the hay was he doing in wisconsin ? we need him to fight the gangs ! )
    And Mary Mitchell ! , etc !!! They prey upon the weak !!!!
    Is the black community so stupid not to realize this ? I hope not !!!
    Now we have the muslim thing ! ( making pretty girls cover up in a blanket
    On a 95 degree day , sweating like a pig ! WITH A TOWEL ON THEIR HEAD ! )
    Should a newspaper hire a person just to write a racist column ?
    Is society stupid ?
    Shame on you SunTtimes !
    There’s talented young journalist out there wanting to make a difference !
    And no , Mary Mitchell , rap is not an art ! just another money scheme to
    prey upon the weak ! , check out band: Garaj Mahal for talented black musicians !
    Billy Cobham ! Miles Davis ! Stanley Clarke ! Dizzy Gillespie ! Tony Macalpine !
    ( but, everyone calls me stupid ! )

    Here”s a Mary Mitchell response :
    Hi , Im Mary Mitchell !
    This Police crackdown on men of color will have an
    adverse effect on our culture !
    Our culture is based upon receiving free stuff from the
    Government ! Police enforcement of drug crimes,
    robbery , burgleries and murders will cause our
    young men of color to have to study hard in school
    and get good grades and work at McDonalds and
    learn to make a living the honest way !
    ( the way white youths do ! )
    This must stop ! Jesse and I will help get our
    Color society back to a freeloading
    Taxpayer based economy
    of which we are accustomed to !
    Im a crazy crack ho bee atch !
    Why don’t they crack down on the St.Pattys gang !
    Irish gang , they all wear green , have a shamrock tattoo on check !
    The ring leader goes by “ Lord of the dance “

    Why censor my opinion ?
    Just go to another site ! Dum people !
    Am I saying anything that isn’t true ? Tell me !!
    Im going to be a politician soon , making a taxpayer fair wage and helping
    the USA people ! ( I cant be any worse any worse than what”s out there , roland buris , todd stronger )
