      What a racist statement to make! Shame on you!!! There are plenty of black folks, Latinos,and Asians that work just as hard! This has nothing to do with race! People like are what makes society divided by race…Educate yourself and open your heart and mind. We are all God’s children, regardless of race. I will pray for you.
