    If there is systematic racism I blame the people that control information.
    And the LEFT controls the media, BIG TECH like Google and Amazon, Hollywood, all of social media, and the late night talk shows and comedy show. Also, Joe Biden has been part of this oppressive system for 47 years.

    建議美國在非洲及南美洲購買大片土地,鼓勵並補助非裔及拉美裔美國人,前往經營農工業。
    It's just a suggestion that the United States may purchase large tracts of land in Africa and South America, then encourages and subsidizes African Americans and Latino Americans going there to engage in agriculture and industry .

    His family. Not him. Trumps had multiple laws suits of not renting to black ppl. Hires illegal aliens and doesn’t pay em.
    I like my presidents not impeached, that unite a country not divide it. One that takes responsibility for his actions.

    The Secret of All Secret Societies
    (FREE ENERGY + TELEPATHY)

    The Third Eye. The Pyramids.

    The Third Eye = Telepaths, psychics. Nearly half of the global population is psychic/telepathic. Referred to in the modern day, as 'Awakening/Opening the Third Eye', telepaths/psychics aren't permitted to disclose much information to those who are not awake/aware i.e. telepathic/psychic. There are rules. There is a policing force also made of secret societies.

    The Pyramids = Ancient Pyramids of Egypt. Regarded as mysterious, with questions remaining to present day as to the purpose of their construction, answers are kept hidden within secret societies and the minds of telepaths. Revealed to only those who awaken their third eye and become telepathic, is the marvel of electricity existing in ancient times. Concepts of Free Energy are originally derived from the ancient pyramids, known for producing free electricity in mass volumes, instantaneously. This secret along with the actual methods that were used and needed to produce free energy are kept secret by half the world and regulated by secret societies. The pyramids were turned OFF a long time ago, they can be turned ON today if the secret and hidden powers to be wanted the world to have free energy.

    How? Electrical components, Inductors and Transformers (coils), do not transfer electricity but actually create free electricity. Solar energy fed back into an inductor or transformer, can create unlimited electricity instantaneously. Norms (non-telepaths), are often discouraged and confused when attempting to study electrical engineering or physics due to the false assertion of Electrons. There are no such thing as electrons, they are taught only to confuse norms so they don't figure out the solution to the worlds energy problems.

    There is a reason why the cartoon 'Transformers' was created, along with the lyric in it's theme song, "Transformers – More Than Meets The Eye."
