    Troll, please. Jealous of what? supply up licking white men's ft and pull your pants up. Black individuals are proud of their race. look at Michelle Obama. She LOVES who she is and exhibits it with a quiet self assurance and serene way. you're the fellow who's jealous because you attacked a set of probability free human beings suddenly with the intention to target to strengthen your susceptible ego, jealous nature and insecure personality.
