  13. Run Says:

    Grim, your a racist piece of shit. You don’t deserve the tissue that wipes your cracker ass. Most white ppl are scared of brown men because we are the original human race. Physically stronger,skilled,intellectual,brave and smarter. We created rock and roll (chuck berry) and we created doo-wop,r&b,and hip-hop. White ppl created guns cause they can’t fight. Never could. F- u and your pink ass cracker pale so called parents. They taught u how to be nothing.
