    Mr Jimmy. I would be hesitant to pray for a serial adulterer living in clear violation of the book. Or are you praying he will win the forgiveness? For sure, you cannot possible pray for him to become the leader of our country.

    Aiden Audric picture this: 3 black men standing in court, one in jail scrubs who just committed a terrible crime, his lawyer standing beside him in an expensive 3 piece suit, behind them is a deputy sheriff in his county issued uniform.

    Guess what ALL three of them have in common? They all made choices in their life which lead them to be in court that day. Guess what DIDN'T affect their destiny? You got it, that little thin layer of black skin that covers their body. It's a lot easier to cast a stone and call someone a racist when there is no proof than to address the real problem.

    Just look at the current situation we are in with LEO's. Even the latest incident in Charlotte where a black cop killed a black man, but rioters were calling cops racist. Not to mention he had a stolen weapon on him. Hard to argue with facts, but I guess wal-mart prices were too high and they felt oppressed and entitled to take what they didn't work for.

    "What have you haters done with YOUR lives?"

    Haters gonna hate. They seem to like to answer questions about it, too, and imply every single black person lives the exact same life and should have the exact same accomplishments. Quite tidy thinking.

    I've seen overt racism in my life, but to openly admit it so forcefully? Interesting.

    From lower middle-class beginnings to earning 2 Ivy-League degrees, serving as a University Vice-President (at a six-figure salary) before becoming First Lady. What have you haters done with YOUR lives?

    I have raised two successful kids, paid off 3 homes, have numerous friends I can call anytime and they will be there all with a high school diploma. Titles don't make you successful Paul. There's a helluva lot of very rich people who are miserable.

    Explain to me how a black woman can achieve as much as you have said she has, but yet goes around the country speaking out against oppression and white privilege. What keeps the "oppressed" people she speaks of from excelling like her?

    Still doesn't change the fact she speaks out of both sides of her mouth. One day Hillary isn't fit to be President and the next she is. That goes for hr husband also. Facts are facts and you can't change that.

    Will she speak out against her like she did in the past or for her????? I'm confused. One year she says Mrs. Clinton can't take care of her own house much less the White House and now she's the best thing since sliced bread..Blows my mind...

    Politically I like to see this move, as I see her creating damage for Mrs. Clinton instead of benefitting her. I would hope someone would ask her "does she view Bernie supporters as living in their Mom's basement, as does Mrs. Clinton?"

    This would be a very good line of journalistic inquiry for WRAL to pursue.

    Her opinion means nothing to me, I wouldn't waste any time or effort to hear anything she has to say. She is here trying to drum up votes for her liberal Democrat party and I understand that and she has that right as long as I'm not paying her way, She should not be doing it on the taxpayers dime. hopefully she is not.
