    So very sad. We black people are forever hurting each other and blaming white man. I wonder how many black on black has happened since Michael Brown was killed by the police officer. Open your eyes we are so busy blaming others. We can’t see how much we are doing.to own people. Please wake we are doing exactly what they want to each other.
