Did I say “SHE”? Was I in error? Silly me.
Why don’t they just make it illegal to be white? Get it over with. Line us all up in front of firing squads and kill us. You KNOW they want to.
I guess that, for some people, reality sucks.
Ex...he used to be.
He is a 'Latino', his main gripe is the show does not focus on the wetbacks in Chicago, and their awesome efforts to transform the craphole into something wonderful, like, say, Mexico City.
