I came across an online community for individual seeking interracial love. It is --Black White Meet . c O m--- All singles there are seeking interracial dating or relationships. Interracial is not a problem here, but a great merit to cherish

A heck of a topic to advertise interacial dating. Seems like some of these bigots on here could use a little action from the opposite sex and race. If that won't reduce their anger and hate, what will.

? - Why mention this as a school tragedy when the kids were not shot at school? When these kids get in car accidents it's not a school issue like Walt whitman was part of the kid speeding. It's a teen driver in an accident, and then friends mourn at kids school. Only DC and PG schools face negative headlines with direct association of events like this. in this day in age the school has little to nothing to do with it. Kid shot in certain part of NE means he goes to Spingarn.
