      Mr. Boys, a putrid stain on the gene pool, shot a beautiful
      person in order to be caught, brought to trial, and cost
      to the community grief and pain. Mr. Boys is a mistake in
      civilization’s ongoing movement toward reason.

      Dude, a quick search shows you defend people calling African Americans folks “spades”. 30 sec search bro.
      You don’t really give a crap about black people. Who’s buying your bullsh?t other than yourself?
      SM: A quick search shows you have no clue as to what you are talking about and are a racist yourself.

      Keep to yourself as to what you think, not what others do as you are nothing more than an evil, ignorant troll. You are a perfect example of what is wrong with this country. For people who do care about ALL LIVES MATTER, you are the ignorance that exists that proves a mind truly is a terrible thing to waste.

      To #2 … Get rid of the hate, it will eat you alive.

      Isn’t it amazing how other people are so quick to say what others think. It would appear that you have enough issues going on in your own brain, cure that first, before you condemn others.
