I remember walking into a restroom in a resterant and a little african american girl was in there washing her hands.I said hi and she replied with 'My uncle doesn't like me talking to white people'. Its so sad how there are still people like that out there.I pity that girl ; no child deserves a family like that. Frown

brunea: probably because they didn't like how whites were treating blacks...It was pretty horrible

He was pretty brave to do all that... If I was alive when this happened I would have known 100% that he would be assassinated by some person who didn't like what he was doing. I'm actually pretty suprised he got THAT far. But anyways, Thank You!

Unfortunately there are always going to be silly people who dislike things for no reason. In the case of MLK, to dislike the article is pretty insensitive. Those are the people we all need to ignore in life!

Ok, this is actually very accurate. Though, I will point out that I have been on here for almost 4 years, and I feel like the level between boys and girls is fairly equal. I will say, that recently, I believe there have been more girl newbies, but the matter of who you see around most, it cuts pretty close to a tie

Don't ask why, but it does, You are probably a girl reading this right now, and at some point we all meet a lesser spotted guy in the forums. You don't really know they're a guy unless they have a lamborghini for their profile picture. Then you get one in your roleplay, and since you're a little embarrassed to have smooching and girly talks with a REAL LIFE guy in the room, everyone rushes to make their character a tomboy. But soon you will realise that this guy is cool, and he may even become your best friend and you'll be on all the same RPs. Then it's a race to get your character to have a love story with his character. If you meet a guy before you get into RP, sometimes you'll become the dynamic duo that goes around flipping everyone off in the comment section like "WE DON'T GIVE A HOOT!". Basically, this guy is the firetrucking best. Guess who has always had a Lamborghini as a pic :D

So school for 2014 has ended and a lot of you have probably had your graduation. I had mine and hugged all my friends at the end and cried afterwards. I was wondering, who else has cried at or after their graduation? It's actually sad because you realise you're probably never going back there again and if you were in Primary School and most of or even all of your friends are going to different high schools, you're probably never going to see them at school again.
