        @ Real Talk, are you brain dead? Just because some fool from way back when wrote the idiotic insulting words out of stupidity and hate, doesn’t mean you can’t see it is degrading and inhuman, and need to STOP quoting your oppressors and start using your common sense.

    I hope real talk has opened your eyes to the enslavement that has been and is still being perpetrated by the BIBLE. This has been white supremacy and racism's greatest, most effective weapon. Even as we speak there are those who will defend this evil because these TURKEYS are LIVING DEAD.I see dead people, they don't know they are dead. I see them walking around everywhere. Wake up and live gobble gobble.
