    The Ignorance Is Real!!

    It's hard to believe that in this day and age racism still exist. The ignorance of these people kill me. I hate these kind of people with a passion. It's amazing how people think that just because you're different you are beneath them. Who the hell are these people to pass...

    I Was and Still Am

    When I was younger, and sometimes I still do this, I would research racist groups and their symbols and tattoos, call myself educating myself on how to recognize one before I got too close on him.  Skinheads and the Aryan Brotherhood, KKK...all them.  It just fascinates...
