Rant proves racism is still alive and well

The Internet exposure of Janelle Ambrosia’s vicious racist attack on Narvell Benning clearly demonstrates that racism is alive and well in Cheektowaga as well as the rest of the country. Many are inclined to place the blame on her alleged diminished mental capacity. However, mental illness and racism are not synonymous. You’re either inclined in that direction or you’re not. Mental illness cannot bring out something that is not there to begin with.

To Ambrosia I must say that all is not lost, however. She has accomplished in minutes what it takes others years to do – that is, making yourself look like an idiot before the entire world.
