  1. We need to start teaching black people how to swim. It should be taught in public schools, this happens far too often.


  2. The family of the young lady that hung herself has started a Go Fund Me for her funeral. Please donate to Diana Tello Ramirez any amount would be greatly appreciated by her heartbroken family.
