When you have vandalism of homes in the form of “F*** the 1%” and “kill people.”, it validates Perkins concern...
Oh yes.
One graffiti example makes an epidemic... Exactly how it started with the Jews...

You missed what winston53660 was actually saying.

Either that, or you SERIOUSLY need to compare:
