    Nothing more than a white man putting down a black man.

      How is the white man putting down the black man here? The black man here killed a black sister, no whites here. Once a gain it just shows you can move from the hood to sleepy hollow and still bring the hood with you. Its time for them to learn that until they change how they attack, the rest of the people wont change the way they are seen. As MJ said, start with the man in mirror.
