    Black people,
    be honest with yourself,
    can a being do this to a people and be a human at the same time?
    And if your answer is no,
    then,you must say that if they are not human then their offspring can not be human either.
    The old saying that the fruit doesn't fall far from the tree,is true.
    Think about it.

    He wrote negro for a reason. Some old timers still refer to blacks as negros. It wasnt a derogatory term. It comes from the Spanish word for black. Which is literally spelled, Negro.
