    At least I'll say I try.

    It's waaaaay to easy to slip to the dark side sometimes. There are times I screw up without even trying. I'll even try to good and suddenly, surprise, I did bad anyway. I'm not racist, sexist, or favoritist. I typically judge people by their character and intentions rather...
