Black people were on the earth 60,000 years before the bowels of hell opened it's hellish mouth to spew these offsprings of a Rhesus monkey out of the caucus hellish caves of darkness.
Cold and no sun light, they huddled up to anything with fur and one thing led to another until bestiality became their way of life.
We'd better watch these cave beast, they are trying to procreate with sheep, dogs, cows and knot holes in a tree.
You have lost your mind, making a statement like this. Insane.You might want to seek therapy to help you with these issues.

we have a KKK in our little town.
honestly, black people bitch too much about racism. they say "oh it's 2012 racism is outdated" uh no. wrong. racism will go on forever. and blacks are just a racist. cry a river build a bridge and get over it. I'm sick of the whining. If you're not racist, good for you. if you are, good for you. Let people live the way they want. Leave em alone! Boo. Freakin. Hoo.

There's evidently quite a few depressed black males on the internet because while alone and unarmed, they generally don't speak nor act like this in the public brick-and-mortar world.

I've experienced a racist attack first hand myself when I was a kid. My brother and I used to hang around with some friends who were black who lived near us when we were in our early teens. We got attacked and stoned by some white Leeds Utd fans (UK soccer team). The fans were well known racists at the time and this gang of them travelling home from an away game in our city had seen us playing football (soccer to US folks). They stopped their van in the middle of the road, chased us and cornered us and basically swore, made horrible animal/monkey noises and threw stones and part bricks at us for about 15mins. We were terrified trapped and these guys were in their 30s so we didn't stand a chance. Luckily somebody had called the police and they drove off at high speed in their van when they heard the siren. This is one of the worst experiences of my teenage yrs and I can understand how repressing your reaction to experiences such as this can affect a persons self esteem and confidence for the rest of their lives. My brother and I are white and we were in the wrong place at the wrong time but our friends will undoubtedly have faced stuff like this on several occasions.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/kHgRdx only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
