Herald moderator........thank you for removing Brother_Love's comment.........whatever it was. And believe me........he's NOT the black Sister_Ruby!! And he should be called Brother_Hate because he is a hate filled racist who hates white people also himself at the same time which is sad. And he probably gets more public assistance than he contributes to his own upkeep which explains why he hates himself as well as those who are paying for him to eat, sleep, and drive a luxury import.
