Just since you don’t like anyone really do not suggest I’m gonna like him. The earth never do the job like that and which is the challenge. Ya’ll wanna press your concerns, ya’ll wanna force your beliefs, ya’ll wanna thrust your s—t on men and women simply because ya’ll feel this way. I’m my individual individual. I do what I wanna do.

But the exact same group experienced a receiver say the phrase n—-r publicly, and they gave him an extension. I enjoy for the Big 3. We have a Jewish operator. He understands in which we stand and some of the points we say, but it’s not directed to him. It’s the way we’ve been taken care of. Philadelphia, y’all require to repost this.”
