Plaster cast, Newsprint, ammunition shells, candy, tampons, gum, glowsticks, Black-N-Milds, various cigarettes, potato chips, crayons, paint, wood, brooms, shame, sadness

Statement: Ever wonder what it was like to hunt a Super Predator or observe, rape and dismember a Welfare Queen in the 1980’s and 90’s? Well, dream no more!  This may be your first (and last) chance to beat a person of color without ANY risk to your wellbeing or retirement fund. Experience that special soul shattering blow to the super predator’s hard, near-impenetrable exterior or help that lowly brown girl out with a free abortion! Once you bust dark oak, don’t you dare stop there! Steal away all that they’ve been hoarding over the years from your hard earned tax dollars and enjoy the treasures (and traumas) to sweet, rewritten history! Take a shot or take it all. Their resources are yours by God. Don’t worry, that big ass negroid won’t break nor will that preggery, pecan minx cry over her 3rd miscarriage. So git’er done- you damned American, you!
