#2 Cripes Danni still drunk or did you wake up full of hate, jealousy and Scotch? Either one clouds your ability to FOCUS on the article and in your typical fashion attack the poster. Sleep it off or seek help.

"Cripes Danni still drunk or did you wake up full of hate, jealousy and Scotch?"

Nope. Woke up wide awake and still able to call out hypocrisy when I see it. You pretending to be a supporter of Rosa Parks is ridiculous whether you are capable of admitting it or not. No one who supports Donald Trump can pretend to be a supporter of Civil Rights, no one who thinks the Republican Southern Strategy isn't racism can pretend to be a supporter of Civil Rights. I grew up mostly in the South and witnessed, first hand, the racism and hate focused on black people that I actually knew, but unlike those around me, I was raised by a Southern woman who wasn't a racist which was quite rare in those days.

Poor poor Danni. A keyboard warrior who doesn't know me. Keep on keeping on. You wake up every day full of hate and misery and that's destroying you.
