  • No More Monkey Business

    Another black homie spreading misery. Don’t get a job and work for a living, it’s much easier to let someone else work hard and then just steal their money. The car was pulling away, he could have just left it at that, but no, he had to murder the person for not complying. This is a perfect example of the state of our black homie problem. If law makers don’t take it seriously and make some changes to deal with this problem, it will only get worse. Of course Lyndia and NWA will excuse this simian’s behavior, because he is one of them. But who cares what they think any way??
