im not angry i just do not tolerate ignorance and nonsense, and this is the same old n***** talk, as soon as someone call you for who you are they must be white, well guess what when i see anigger i call him or her a n*****, when i see a true black person i embrace him or her, and most of you on here are a bucnh of negro coconut without no common sense, you just run with the mouth and cant even help the place where you come from, like president Trump say why dont you all go back in that filthy place, i cant wait to vote for him, he maybe racist but he is keeping all those damn f****** immigrants out, i have my own problems in this country, and those immigarnts bring us black out here more problems, they discriminate more against blacks than white

Natalie these are some of the questions that are being ask, but more importantly where was that car park, no one go outside and saw the kids, it was a hot day every one are outside, was th car parked in a hiding area, that s*** dont make no sense, they need to give him a lie detector test to find out if he really did forget no one but 2 kids, and also the wife and the molther what do they know, i would murder any one who makes dumb excuses for s*** like that, how can a father forget 2 of his kids for 8 long hours, i mean seriously who does that when we can just send a quick text even if we are busy
