Mr. Andrews,

Stop fooling your self and you are not the one to be fooling your self! Black Americans have always been on the bottom of the economy since Pre. Lincoln abolished plantation slavery.

Black America’s problem is that we don’t have a country of our own to have our own economy. Black Americans will soon come into our own country and have full responsibility of our lives.

What God did for the Children of Israel the same is presently being done for Black Americans.
