Nature is to be respected. A lot of white ppl do not do that. They think they can control everything.

Quit saying white people do crazy sh*t. We are from the jungle. People get mauled and attacked all the time in Africa you don't hear about it cause its not news you gossip about. You hunt you kill, you hunt possibilty you might get killed. Hey you dont have to be hunting you could be on a stroll, and the chances of a person in the jungle wearing boots let alone shoes might be suprisingly low. That foot looks bad a** though alota of shock he must be in from looking at it. The only lesson to learn is Mother Nature is dangerous tread carefully. If a black person pops up on this site with half his head missing from a tiger then what are you going to say? Black people do the craziest sh*t? Na. We originated from "crazy" sh*t. Bro/Brahs
