    Blacks are 15% of the population in america, latinos are 16%, by the year 2045, blacks are projected to be 17% and latinos will be 30%, do the math, if we dont stop ki*len each other at this rate, all of america will look like LA. think about it all the guys thats locked up in there 20s and 30s are not reproducing kids and all the guys that die at the hands of another black man aint reproducing either. we dont have africa bordering america like them mexicans do, the numbers we have now are not growing because we are eating our young, ki*len off our kids, and now the mexicans are ki*len us to, damn! times have changed f#@$k ki*len our own!
