"Two more, BLACK PEOPLE"

One bullet two black youths. When will the BLACK COMMUNITY have an defining moment and help us help these people and stop fighting us? All we're trying to do is help poor people help themselves build a better world for their children. Why do we have to fight you every step of the way? Johnny Cunningham 252-266-3858
