How many more bodies are going to have to be found before someone say that we have some major concerns here in Greensboro that need to be addressed...This was a kid..a young black males life that was lost today..When is it going to end ??? When it happens in your neighbourhood? When it happens to your son or daughter?...One body is too many, black or white.....
