    • See above. You two should form a club. Don’t forget to bring along your white sheets

      • George, you and I both know that these people writing these racist remarks are cowards. They will never come out in public and express their hate and discontent. The KKK even hid their cowardly faces behind sheets, but now we have the internet so more cowards and bigots can express their feelings. I don’t understand how referring people to “Obama’s” children is an insult? I would have loved to have parents like like him.
