Who has the authority to separate?

Who are the real owners of the place we call home? That's a question everyone should be asking in the next presidential election. I think of real common sense questions. Why is this so important? Well this photo was posted on another infamous website and linked to the page with a profile of me on it. What's interesting is this person wrote a caption stating the little girl in this photo was a criminal for being Black. Me, once again I totally disagree.
