    it is not all about racial and this is not known yet…..this is happening all too often. Kids can’t even get to school and home safely. It is a shame and I am glad I lived in a time where I could walk to school. C’mon people

    why oh why do people carry their social security card? You only need it when completing a job application – IF the HR person actually asks for and looks at it.

    Otherwise, it is a simple printed card that identifies nobody – but yet is your entire identity. It’s like carrying your birth certificate… there is no reason for it!

    The racism is terrible now!!!!! The issue isn’t about if the person was black or white. The issue is the robbery…. if that was the case then we should just be segregated again…. what’s the point of this freedom shot…. when everybody still unappreciative of how all this started!!!! Grow up!!!!
