I usually don't respond to ignorance, but something has to be said. Some of these comments are just horrible. This is 2011 and not all black people are recieving government assistance, in fact more white people are than blacks. I am an African American Woman, recent college graduate from the Univerisity of Tennessee at Knoxville,(and no you did not pay for that either. My parents worked hard everyday so that I could recieve my masters). Can you say the same? Judging by your comments no. I would proudly say that I would love to have Ms. Harris' job. Yes I completed college so that I would not have to do factory work, but she makes more money than I am currently making so @ECHO I seriously doubt it if you were paying for anything as far as she was concerned. The fact of the matter is simply, she was wrong. To be honest that is all you had to say.
@Echo you are the the problem with the world today, and the reason I did not want to come to Chattanooga. All the bad things that I have heard about the white people here seems to be true. Obama won because he was the better man. Try harder next time. He is your Commander in Chief, a black man (love it!!!) Get over it already, really. He is in office because Americans had faith in him, they were over the republicans, so they went another route. OMG old people !!!! I really hope you are old because it saddens me to think that there are young people in the world who have been taught to hate. Ignorance is and always will be bliss, but I would be able to understand the ignorance a little better if you were born prior to 1960. So please be old.
@ECHO a child has died, regardless of his race and his dreams, he was a child. What if this were your child? How would you feel, if you were to read such slanderous comments about your loved one from people who did not even know him/her? You really shouldn't be so hateful. What were you doing at 17, what were you dreams? Rapping was his dream, they make so much more money than you could ever dream of making. Who really has the time to sit around commenting on stories?
If you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all.
Yes you are entitled to your opinion, but opinions are like rear ends, everybody has one. This was someone's child, friend, cousin, brother, nephew, student, classmate, and no one deserves to die like that.
@The families envolved, you are all in my prayers.
P.S Sorry if there are errors I really do not have time to proof read, I have to go to work in the morning. LOL!!!
Echo you make it hard to walk in love, but I can't let hating you keep me from heaven. I love you and you too are in my prayers. God Bless
