    Who cares about a misspell word. A woman has lost her life. A family is hurting and all you got to said is ” Louisa is spell wrong”. Who cares.

    Hah, maybe if the mass media informed white women of the fact that they are 12 times more likely to get murdered in a relationship with a negro this wouldn’t have happened…

    Anonymous are you angry because you want a black man but they don’t want you. Is it ok that a white man would kill you, your children, any member of your family that there then put the gun to his own head. That what a white man will do to a white woman.
