    it’s insane…..the MILLIONS of our people who just NEVER understand that we are a confused fuckin group!! i cannot believe that this basic young black girl is blindly going along with and supporting catholics, who had a major hand in enslaving us. the same group of people that perpetuated the notion that we are less than human. Whatever her real name is, I hope she gets that fame & celebrity is evil…I hope ALL Blacks realize this.
