Now I will be called a racist because of my initial paragraph in this story. That's ok, you are entitled to your opinion...but it has nothing to do with race on my part. It has to do with the ridiculousness of the notion that black men are being picked off and killed, or slighted at every turn and that' is why they are becoming extinct. CLEARLY this is not true. When two men choose to rob, by gunpoint, a defenseless, unarmed woman who is just trying to bring a new life into this world, they brought on their own demise.
