  1. If you ever wake up next to one than you fellas know what I’m talking bout, their roof top is missing no hair.

  2. Middle class, working Black men know the truth about their women, they know that when that rent is due or car note or phone bill is due he better have that in cash especially if she needs a new wig. Because the second he says he doesn’t, she calling up that Crispy White Sugar Daddy. Because she’s knows he going to pay all of it and get the new wig.

  3. Gold diggers using the sweat and blood of the Black man to get them that new hair peice.

  4. You ladies need to move to Ethiopia or Nigeria so you can see what it’s like to go hungry.

  5. I don’t really know about Trayvon Martins death. But I thought it was extremely hypocritical for the NBA to go all out on the BLM issue after they completely kowtowed to China over Hong Kong’s democratic rights. You don’t get respect when you fold to a dictatorship for money and then expect people to respect your cause six months later. It’s either human rights or nothing, as a huge organisation like the NBA you don’t get to pick and choose.

  6. 10:30 you could also just destroy the room and building to make a community but apparently that’s not “pRoFiTaBle”

  7. Trayvon Martin… The first fake Martyr in the church of dumb SREGGIN. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
