a question I respect your efforts to make something good out of the evil that was done to you, but you see, this kind of violence it's not random, but well planned. It required the co operation of police, the media and government officials to allow it to happen. The death of a black child was only the excuse needed to trigger the assault on our people. Today, we are targeted because people like you think cruelty can be conquered with "the power of love" but our Torah says it's not true. Reply

in response to Scotty:

Yes, I fully agree. It is important to love everyone, but not whenever the black communities are joined violently against us and the other races. Reply

This is so beautiful. And so heartbreaking. May Hashem give you strength and guidance to make a profound influence on many lives, and may you know only simchos! Reply
