Video: Three OUTRAGEOUS Myths About “Swirling”…

This video is a light-hearted response to some cold-blooded assumptions that are being made about “Swirling” by people–some who are self-proclaimed “journalists” who have never cracked the spine on the book.

It just took a bit more suspension of reality when you’re a slave descendant who traces their roots to–you guessed it–Dallas, or at least within a 20-mile vicinity.
