      Your precious Superman is nothing! Sad that a simple piece of rock can be his downfall. He is more pitiful than even Achilles. Ron Troupe got lucky with my warehouse. If not for him, your "man of steel" would not be here today!

    Would it be possible for two people to fall in love if one of them could never actually say the words, "I love you." Hypothetically speaking of course.

    Black people are sooo dumb.. They're never gonna get over the fact that slavery once happened huh?
    Well deal with it.. Its the past.. You can't take back what happened..
    We now gave you a place to stay and equal opportunities as white people but you're still not satisfied!
    We give u jobs, welfare, plan 8, medicare, foodstamps, cash assistance, a whole month dedicated to Black History and all you're doing is complaining and causing more crime in America.. Basically you're living for free off of OUR tax payer money.. What else do you want from us?
    We're never gonna give you the 40 acres and a mule so this will do for now.. Like it or don't. We tried to settle this with your kind but apparently you're still on it.. If you don't like it, get out of this country and go back to Africa to see if they treat you any better there.. We're talking about people that kill their own kind.... Black people are the worst...
