I don&apost wanna be treated like I can&apost take a joke.”,

People are allowed to say whatever the fuck they want . . . White people have been mean to us in the past. What are you gonna do about that? Tell me what you&aposre gonna do about that. There&aposs no answer other than creating understanding and keeping it moving. That&aposs some biblical shit.
