I heard they went "woke". Jumped on the bandwagon of telling blanc people they should apologize for being blanc. Now they are back-pedaling. TOO LATE! You can’t put your evil back in the bottle boys. I’ve heard that each time a Salvation Army bell rings, a demon gets it wings! Give your donations to a pet rescue, animals have unconditional love, these people, not so much.
