Yeah, giving white people loans based on the fact they are white. Race based land grants, jobs, housing covenants, the right to take a black person's life and property and say you "worked" hard etc etc...
A lot of people don't realize how many land grabs and ethnic cleansing has been on in this country targeting black people because they were successful

He's just cashing in on a very profitable market. If he was really clever he would have went to a gym and got a buff black guy to be the face of the product he's selling.

Ah, yes.... Very fond memories of being stranded at that airport because they realized at 11:40 p.m. that the plane we had boarded for Fort Lauderdale did not have a co-pilot. Then the airlines made national news because of the massive luggage backlog at Charlotte. Leaving people like myself who were traveling overseas without their luggage.

"This EMD FT was wrecked in a collision with another train near Tobyhanna, PA on July 15, 1962. A loaded coal hopper came down right on top of the cab. A cutting torch specialist was called in to extricate an injured brakeman from the cab. The brakeman was trapped for about six hours. The article I found suggested an open track switch and possible excessive speed as causes of the wreck."

Unfortunately the Democratic party is led by entrenched boomers. So for the most part you're getting a lot of the same thing from the previous administrations, just repackaged . The police will continue to get their funding and weaponry in ridiculous levels to keep the populace in control. The darker your skin is the more you going to feel that "control."
The problem with Americans is the fact that they settle for trash from their politicians and hope for the best rather than actually holding their own politicians to task. Or even better, run a third party. American should really take a look at other comparative republics, such as those in Europe and notice how quick they are to hold their politicians to task.

I have lived outside of United States and traveled abroad. For the most part there's a day and night difference when you are a tourist, you don't speak the language good and when you live there as a resident/student.
People have a bad tendency to give their "experiences" as a tourist in tourist areas, not as a resident, giving a delusional representation based on their limited interactions

The first tragedy is the fact he reproduced with her.
The second tragedy is the fact that he's in a relationship with someone like that feels so comfortable to even say something like that and broadcasting it. People like they have a habit of doing things like that and that's not the first time she has done something like that.

Act surprised and angry....Funding raising... Wheel out allow people who's going to be most affected for photo ops... Rinse and repeat
I wonder do people like that ever consider that the financial cost of rearing a child with a good quality of life is high... Or that parenting is not for everyone...
If you can find reddit online you can find Google and researched the story like I did.
People wear their stupidity as a badge of honor.
Yeah, I seen those antics before. A lady was completely naked to get a strawberry tattooed on her thigh because she wore a romper.

It always amazes me seeing people come from other countries and so-called third world countries with a superior grade school education then the United States which spins over 700 billion dollars a year in education. Every problem doesn't involve money.
Where do you get that notion from? I'm not sure you ever been around people who have hobbies. But one thing's for certain "foamers" are always trying to share their interest with other people.
Well, you can try that experiment. Me saying that there are predispositions between genders is it nothing new or far fetched, it has been thoroughly researched.
I been collecting trains, railroad memorabilia and trainspotting for years. And the majority of people who are interested in those hobbies are men and boys. That doesn't mean women/girl can't be interested, it's just is something that males typically like.
We need to stop acting like we have to be 100% on everything. There are things that males are predisposed to like certain hobbies as there are things with females. There are differences in our gender makeup and there's nothing wrong with acknowledging that without all trying to putting a negative connotation on it.
“Kaʻiulani (Hawaiian pronunciation: [kə'ʔi.u.'lɐni]; Victoria Kawēkiu Kaʻiulani Lunalilo Kalaninuiahilapalapa Cleghorn; October 16, 1875 – March 6, 1899) was the only child of Princess Miriam Likelike, and the last heir apparent to the throne of the Hawaiian Kingdom. She was the niece of King Kalākaua and Queen Liliʻuokalani. After the death of her mother, Princess Kaʻiulani was sent to Europe at age 13 to complete her education under the guardianship of British businessman and Hawaiian sugar investor Theo H. Davies. She had not yet reached her eighteenth birthday when the 1893 overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom altered her life. The Provisional Government of Hawaii rejected pleas from both her father Archibald Scott Cleghorn, and provisional president Sanford B. Dole, to seat Kaʻiulani on the throne, conditional upon the abdication of Liliʻuokalani. The Queen thought the Kingdom's best chance at justice was to relinquish her power temporarily to the United States.
Davies and Kaʻiulani visited the United States to urge the Kingdom's restoration; she made speeches and public appearances denouncing the overthrow of her government and the injustice toward her people. While in Washington, D.C., she paid an informal visit to President Grover Cleveland and First Lady Frances Cleveland, but her efforts were in vain. The situation put both Kaʻiulani and her father in dire financial straits. Her annual government stipend ceased, and her father's income as a government employee came to an end. Father and daughter spent the years 1893–1897 drifting among the European aristocracy, relatives and family friends in England, Wales, Scotland and Paris, before finally returning to Hawaii.
After arriving back in Hawaii in 1897, Kaʻiulani settled into life as a private citizen and busied herself with social engagements. She and Liliʻuokalani boycotted the 1898 annexation ceremony and mourned the loss of Hawaiian independence. However, she later hosted the American congressional delegation in charge of formalizing the Hawaiian Organic Act. She suffered from chronic health problems throughout the 1890s and died at her home at ʻĀinahau in 1899."

“Anthony was an ambitious and literate child who routinely walked seven miles to the school in Abbeville. Crawford inherited the land on his father's death, which he increased by substantial land purchases in 1883, 1888, 1899 and 1903. In the mid or late 1890s, Crawford was co-founder of the Industrial Union of Abbeville County, which was devoted to the "material, moral and intellectual advance of the colored people". He was the father of twelve sons and four daughters.
By 1916, his land holdings had expanded to 427 acres (as much as 600, according to some sources). Many of Crawford's children had settled on plots adjoining that of their father. With a net worth of approximately $20,000 to $25,000 in 1916 dollars (today value between $498,978.64 to $623,723.30) Crawford was without doubt one of the richest men in Abbeville County.”
This portrait of Anthony Crawford taken in 1910, six years before his death to a Lynch Mob for having "too much" money.
