Why do you think Crazy Joe wants to Ban AR-15s. Without the ability to defend themselves the white will be ripe for the slaughter.

  3. Same thing in South African schools. A nice example of liberal social experimentation that went horribly wrong.

  4. Asian students will also have 15% docked off the top of their math grades to even the playing field.
