Wow! No comments, what if the victims were white? Would anyone care then?

Like I said, less racism, less crime!

I think there should be a "no-racism" day, I wonder if the world would be a better place? Of course it would, but too many people want to hold onto the "we're better than everyone else" to see what happens!
