Who cares? Ask real questions like: "Why does our own government assassinate influential leaders like MLK, JFK and Malcolm X"? It's important for all to realize that the Government, Main Stream Media, Mega-Corporations and so called "community leaders" are dividing our Nation. Race Baiting is used to cloud issues and divert attention from the real issues by unjustifiably swaying public opinion and creating false racial division to further political and ideological agendas and justify their tyrannical Government.
