Sorry for Kandi's loss as well as the children

It is so sad the ignorance exist as far as racism... No specific reason for you guys to dislike black people, I'm sure no one has done anything to you but I assume when you grow up with ignorance and it surrounds you in your everyday lives to hate you become the hater also... no one takes the time to meet and greet anyone these days. Do you the "white" folks think you were natives to this country, this is pathetic and sad that you have to air you hatred on on a site, where people are just obtaining their daily gossip or whatever. All of you racist people are jerks and will some day realize...maybe when you need a heart and only a black person is a match you may reconsider, then again you're so ignorant you may just choose to die...pick up a book and read it, get knowledge and stop being so stupid

I will admit that I was suspicious of the man because of he number of kids he had, but I do feel bad for Kandi and his little ones. She's the only likable member of the cast. I love visiting Atlanta, but no way I'd want to live there. Too many weirdos and ignorant fools.
