Obama to Holder: Can we make this attacker out to be 1/4 white? You know if I had a son, he would like like that transvestite. Do you think he looks like my girls?
Doesn’t the black community shun gay blacks?
Life is a Lampoon in 2012 America. You just cannot make up stuff like this!
Just another one of Obamas groupies to call on....they like the exposure.
The perverts have spoken. That settles it.
Valley is the most hoity-toity high school in the Des Moines area. Not surprising.
