If a white man had said any of that, he would be put under the jail. This man is just as bad as the Westboro Baptist church. If anyone was racist its the Reverend himself.

Please just watch people.Dog fighters will ask there friends to go and adopt a dog and then they will sale it to a dog fighter and then it's in fights. There needs to be a rule when someone adopts a dog or a cat that there will be a 3 month check 6 months and nine months and a year check to make sure the animal is being loved has food and water and has a great place to sleep. Cause even though people pays for them at the shelter they can still be used a bait dogs or fighters. So, please something needs to be done like this.
