  9. Why are you not talking about the 39 weeks of protests in France? Hiding the truth maybe?

  10. There is no shortage … blacks make up 13% of the US population, there for the donor pool is smaller but, the need is also much smaller… The people at NBC clearly can't do math.

  11. if say get the word out via the Black Churches , but the DEMS have been working 24/7 to Destroy The Black Family !

  12. Keep your baby teeth they have stim cells that can be used on your body a already match. Keep ur kids ones

  13. Yeah even they knew . It was their choice. For our daughters. Dont cry for them now

  14. Where miseducation of a generation for religious/ eugenic purposes backfires into selfish entitlement….. wait what was the front fire again ?
    In case you dont understand, people that evolved in hot climates donate less…. which is ironic because they have denser bones … bone deep

  15. Well I guess those minority communities better start donating.
