  1. Lauren apparently said, “I’m tired of covering n*gers killing each other.”

    There is nothing wrong with her saying this. She was speaking to a colleague. She was just being honest. She was not trying to incite any kind of violence or hatred. She is a grown-up and can use whatever words she wants. The issue here is not that Lauren has done anything wrong. The issues are:

    1) Why have white people allowed their countries to be overrun by foreigners?
    2) Why are white people allowing their culture and language to be subverted and attacked by foreigners?
    3) When are white people going to reclaim their lands, their culture, their language, and send all the foreigners back where they came from?

    Another question that seems to have been overlooked is: why are n*gers so violent? It is biological.

  2. I was informed that The Michigan Daily, The University of Michigan (Ann Arbor) University newspaper, posted/stated that if a student from our of the state remained, & took spring/summer classes for 1994 that they would automatically become a citizen of Michigan.

    Please assist? Thank you.
