  1. If this person was white these blacks would be laughing. The past is the past get over it and move on. Blacks seem like playing the victims and the race card the fastest.

  2. No matter the color this is not acceptable. I would not have walked anywhere….the two cops and thier horses would have been waiting with me for a patrol car to come get me.
