Thanks much!
I know what ya mean about the crybabies :)

I thought so, just wasn't sure.
And you seemed quite knowledgeable on what you were talking about, when talking of the crosses. Figured you had read about it, at least, some.

Thanks again :)

Sounds like your losing your
cool again.lol.But really the KKK
did burn a cross right on his front
yard.He told me himself.But why
do you care?
Maybe they did and maybe not. The KKK not only kept blacks in line. just as many white folks felt the wrath of the KKK. Many white folks where punished for being no goods. things like wife beating thievery child abuse adultry could get you tied up and horse wipped. the cross burning was a warning to quit doing whatever was taboo. Maybe if those lawbreakers who are hiring the illlegals and the illegals got visited in the same manner we could solve the illegal immigrant problem? all of the elete and goverment is controlled by secret societies. The middle class maybe need to form one?

What in the f*****g world does race have to do with food. Bottom line minorities think they're entitled to everything! They'll never be happy until they get everything. My family needs to eat just like they do. Last time I checked they get the free food not me!!!!!

watermelons are GREAT for melanated people because we are alkaline in our makeup and watermelon is a super alkaline food!

in ancient societies, watermelons were buried with the kings and queens!

I LOVE WATERMELON! say what you want. in season, i eat it RELIGIOUSLY and my great grands used to grow watermelons are their favorite crops.

i should get a watermelon tatooed on my arm...
