  • Need employment!

    I am homeless and unemployed and need help here in Virginia, but there is none. I want to work so I can get on my feet. I am a Veteran’s widow and served in the Reserves, but there is no help.

    Contact Oprah Winfrey, maybe she will help. Oh wait, she may help only if you are black. If you are white forget it. She is the biggest racist going. If someone says something about her or treats her poorly, she instantly pulls out the race card.
    If whites act as some blacks do we are called racist, why does it not work the other way round?
