  3. Не то что бы ХаерДалис был против или ревновал, но именно сегодня утром распутство одной и похоть другого особенно его раздражали. Можно два месяца не любоваться студенческими физиономиями, терпеть прогрессирующую тупость и хамство детей Новой России, жертв ЕГЭ и реформы образования.


  4. I have a few days I have this blog bookmarked as a favorite site. A little funny, because even kilak weeks ago on this forum I said before, but no blog you will not find among my esteemed pages. Testifying to the extraordinary discussion that blogs are always niewartosciowym Internet junk, on which there is no reliable knowledge, or objectivity. I’m not talking now about a specific address here, but all – is talking about blogs in the form of handbooks, diaries, and information services – there is always a lot of unreliable knowledge and unverified information, which translates into my long-standing aversion to these sites. However, its unwillingness to revise its humility, a few days ago I searched the Internet resources in the search for specific knowledge. A little of the case visited a few blogs, because even though the subject matter often appears in the network, but this subject rather superficially presented. Kidy came across this blog, I was more than surprised. It turned out that the issue presented here is very extensive. There is no doubt that in terms of content is the best service of its kind in the Polish network. Not only that – even scientific, popular, and service breaks are not able to match this portal. So far not succeeded, and even contact the author of all the major publications. But I hope it succeeds – it will write to my email and did not disappoint me, as a faithful reader of the future and will continually grow your blog. Because these sites are thin on the ground in the Polish Internet. Why did I write all this? All through my character, I do not like making mistakes, but if … is to admit them. Such is the case here. Of course, one swallow does not make (they say), but on the basis of this blog I’m willing to admit that this kind of sites on the Internet can be very valuable, kind and above all interesting. Keep up the invite to your blog pozycjonowanie stron


  5. Wow! This can be 1 of the top blogs I’ve actually arrive throughout on this subject. Merely Magnificent


  6. Hello,

    Thanks for sharing this link – but unfortunately it seems to be not working? Does anybody here at americasraceproblem.wordpress.com have a mirror or another source?



  7. Undoubtedly, one of the best article l have come across on this precious topic. I quite agree with your conclusions and will eagerly look forward to your coming updates.


  8. Cool Article! My spouse and i had been simply just debating that there’s a whole lot absolutely wrong details at this matter and also you precisely replaced the belief. Many thanks for a marvelous contribute.


  9. I just discovered your website and now I am one of your followers.


  10. My blog is published once a week, generally. My concern is more with the quality of the information rather than the quanity. Finding appropriate topics that add to our understanding is a challenge when the topic is restricted to race in America. Please feel free to suggest topics that you would like considered by this blog. Thank you for your comment.


  11. No, I have not twitterfeed. I have no account.


  12. No, I do not have a facebook fan page for my blog.


  13. Earning a little $ would be fine, but that is not why I write the blog. I would not take money if I had restrictions on what I say and how I say it.


  14. I’ve bookmarked https://americasraceproblem.wordpress.com/about/ at Digg.com so my friends can see it too. I used Lehman Bio America's Race Problem so it was a good title.


  15. Hi sir, can I ask if you know someone named Paul Bustard Lehman, like your closest relatives? Thank you.
