    I think that Helen Hull is a troll having a fun-and-games timeout from reality.
    I also think that Helen is a guy, and that he is not white.

    Then again if Helen is for real she has a right to give her opinion. None of you should be name calling. It just shows how radical you are as well as lacking in class and upbringing.

    I feel we are all brothers in God's way. Sad that Black Power is a racist but from the other side.

    Helen Hull has been here forever. She get's her s/n hijacked just like the other regulars. The hijackings usually occur during the wee hours of the morning, when the tweekers come out to play. If you have a family member stuck in that rut, you know what I mean.

    @ Black Power:
    I DID NOT WRITE THAT POST calling you a racist.
    A troll wrote it under my name.
    I think that everyone should be proud of his racial heritage.

    @ Black Power:
    I wrote you under my Austin mask.
    A lot of people here don't like me and I use other names to voice an opinion at all.
    If one says what he really thinks, he gets flack all the time.
    You see that I was highjacked and caused to address you.
