    >>Now niggas claiming cause you mostly fuck with Black chicks aint never been no where or had experienced anything.

    I said nothing of the sort. I’ve been with more black chicks than any other race, but I don’t play into them stereotypes you’re preaching boosie. my point is, niggas can be with whoever they want. I don’t co-sign being with a white chick because you’re looking for a ‘trophy’, but I’m not gonna hate on who any person chooses to be with because of skin color. that shit is lame.

    my moms ain’t white, but she could pass for white or latino, so if my pops woulda fed into that bullshit you spitting I wouldn’t be here. so fuck ya’ll niggas with that reverse racism shit, every situation is different.
    _______________________________________________________-__

    I never said you couldn’t be with a chick from a different race. Hell then I would be a fucking hypocrite, but you always try to send indirect shots my way by using the word Bama by my geographic location. When in fact I grew up in the midwest, so I seen more than the average person living in one region their whole life.

    My whole point was that ugly ape nigga, Blatantly has hatred for black women and loves ugly asian broads and white chicks. He likes to make it known and shouts it out, so I called him out on it. He was the example I’m talking about

    ^ROFLMFAO….at ugly ape nigga…

    Niggas talking about they going abroad, when 95% of the year they at a computer. They got to nerve to tell a nigga to step his passport game up, when they ain’t been out the country in 15 years except when they went on their senior trip to costa rico and barbados.

    Now niggas been to cancun and want to tell another nigga to step his game up. Unless you LIVED in other countries you can’t tell me shit and I’ve been out the country but I don’t claim to know what “really goes down” in there. AND what the fuck does living in another country have to do with white bitches if we in America talking about it? No disrespect to the UK or outta town cats.
