@Usa what part of my comment was racist?
You are a typical black woman screaming racism soon as someone says something that you don’t agree with. I hope you and your family do experience real racism so you would learn the difference.
Why are you calling her a man? What’s your purpose for being hateful and mean?
Because it is a man. Are we not all looking at the same picture?
