  1. Okay, so yeah. Me and the boys took a drive-by tour.

    Seriously, We thought it was legal the way they carry on.

  2. “100% off BLACK Friday sale” -TRF

    Stores full of dindu nuffin’s dressed in black being oppressed by white supremacist, male owners.

    I ask because if you’re involved in shootings during Thanksgiving I have to wonder if they had any family commitments to keep them at home and off the streets.
