    Hopefully they discussed how they can be 13% of the U.S population yet be 50% of the prison population. Keep handing out the awards! Pathetic

    • bjah

        "We" didn't enslave any of "you" or any of your family or relatives. If you feel the need to pass blame on something that is nor"our" fault, the YOU can take the blame or every single bit of black on black crime. That can be all of YOUR fault.

    It's funny how society is always bending over backwards to make this community happy. I bet they are so proud now that their beloved leader is destroying our country. But the sad thing is that they are too dumb to notice anything but the color of skin.

    It's funny (not really) how all of you are posting these idiotic remarks based SOLELY off of the picture posted above and know absolutely NOTHING about the organization (or much else for that matter). Yet, still try to make it seem like you're not racist or that it's not about color :-/ Then some of you even go to the extreme of insulting a child…really??? I feel so sorry for you and I wish that you had been given the opportunity to participate in a program like CLD when you were a child…maybe you would have a little bit of self-esteem now and not feel the need to insult others or hate an entire group of people which you know absolutely nothing about just to try to make yourself feel better. "Forgive them Lord for they know not what they do." Amen.

    P.S. Oh and feel free to proof my comments for any misspellings or incorrect grammar…you will not find any 🙂

    Most of the comments appear to come from people who didn't make it past the fifth grade. Those individuals are a wasting your time bantering back and forth with comments. All you can do is pray for the fools souls.
