Give him a break Guesty

He was just trying to feed his mama and her 9 kids cause welfare don't provide enough money for drugs, food and them gold chains. Wait a minute, I think in the hood the gold chains come before feeding kids. LOL


Just what we need...more veiled racial comments. Thanks for that!
