This is an old looking 37 year old. He must be living a pretty hard life.

Violence in

the black community goes unchecked. The feckless naacp has got to get it's house in order and start addressing REAL problems in their community instead of blaming whites for all of their adversities.. I'll let y'all in on a little secret: blacks are their own worst enemies. The white man needs to show some backbone and FORCE welfare and gubmint subsidized ethnicities to take drug tests frequently and attend school before they recieve our financial aid.
