    it is so sad that attitudes have not changed about blacks since slavery, which I think most of you lazy coots wish would come back. Don’t you people know that when there has to be a cutback on jobs that blacks are the first ones to be laid off. Don’t you know that their salaries are never comparable to whites?
    You also need to go down to the Human Resource Administration offices and see who are receiving benefits. If it were a majority of blacks receiving, we would not have a system. The system was created and designed for white folk not black.
    And what does all of this have to do with this woman being murdered??????

      So why do Black men rape women in Haiti and Africa after an earthquake? And why do they become pirates and hijack ships in the ocean? Also why do Blacks always start looting and rioting? No other race or ethnic group does this. Can you explain why?

      • 4realest

        to bell toller same way white man rapes lil innocent boys and girls..every group and race does this do you watch the world news you will see stories of rape n riots all over the globe not only by black people..thats my explanation but because black people are the ones always targeted even when they try being good they still get trashed.. so people before you start talkin bout a single race do some research and you will see that every race…… black spanish asian white every single one of them have bad people who rape kill n have gangs….educate yourselfs cause being ignorant is worse than anything….

    It’s so sad how ignorant, cruel and judegemental people can be. The victiim was a loving, kind, sweet human being who worked not only to take care of herself but her mentally ill sister as well, She could have chose to put her in a state run mentallly institution where your precious tax dollars would have foot the bill but obviolusly she wasn’t looking for a free ride. Just remember, the same judgement you use to judge others will one day be measured back unto you.

    The police are seeking her sister for questioning. What difference does it make what color you are, what neigborhood you live in or where your from if your own sister slices you up?

    you hit the nail in the head
