Another shows the preachers applauding as a white man kneels down to kiss the boots of "the prophets of God" while begging forgiveness for the sins of his race.In yet another video, a preacher of the Israelite School, a man who identifies himself as General Mayakaahla Ka, offers this stark prediction for the future of the white race: "Every white person who doesn't get killed by Christ when he returns is going into slavery!

Jason, who brought chocolate chip cookie cups, compliments my chest. “But you don’t need as much convincing when you’re drunk.” Ducky says.

I keep forgetting that after so long, my friends actually know something about me. “If it isn’t too cold and wet.” “This is Seattle.” Ducky says.
