Racial profiling - Tigerstudent08
Is racial profiling "racist", unfair, or good police work? Whites murdering whites isn't nearly as predominant in the white community as blacks killing blacks in the black community, not even close.

Anyone listening to the Garland Robinette show? - Tigerstudent08
They just had Planned Parenthood and a Doctor on at the same time. Apparently Planned Parenthood didn't know they would be on live with the Dr so they opted out during the first commercial break. This might not be thread worthy but this was the first time I've been listening and this happened. Sh...
