Date: 
Fri, Nov 3, 2017 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm

Once again Linc Up privledge is showing its bias and hate for many in the 49507 community by simply excluding one side of the topic and discussion. Race in 49507 is being ignored by powers that be and we will picket and protest and expose Linc Up for the liars and horrible people they are period.

We are going to expose Linc Up is a melting pot of anger and hate for only those who think one way politically and if you disagree you simply do not belong OR so say the important people.
