Are You Proud or Ashamed of the Human Race?
As if it is not bad enough to be kidnapped by aliens. But to be asked if “you are proud or ashamed of the human race” at gunpoint, in the middle of the night, before you could brush your teeth, and before you had your morning coffee! But as I sat there in the cold, dark room with only my teletubbie bear.

So I ask again, what should I be proud of? Knowing that with these numbers I would be turning on my American people, shaming them with the little research that I have acquired.

But the taking down of the confederate flag and the arrest of Bree Newsome has generated more attention that I ever thought it would. And she is now being charged with defacing a monument which in South Carolina is a
