  1. Reblogged this on Scotties Toy Box and commented:
    Thank you Kreb for showing us this. The fact is we are living in a time where racist are embolden. I recent posted about a 14 year old boy lost on his way to school who got lost and stopped at a home to ask directions. How was he greeted? With a shot gun! He was accused of several vile things and shot at. A 14 year old boy on his way to school. Oh did I need to add the boy was black? This is a real wake up call US. Hugs

    1. I know about that incident as well, Scottie. Until white people begin to see Black people with at least as much humanity as they see in their dogs, this will continue to happen. Thanks for the reblog!
