1. Maybe, one day, they'll stop sorting us and counting how many are in each pile.

4. They have so many people, minorities, religions, sexual orientation,

countries, etc., etc., on their hate list, even the huge IBM computer Watson could not track their hatred of just about everything. There heads have to be exploding by now.

3. Whites have treated minorities so extremely well over the years that
