      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        white moms stank out you pedos that cant think of nothing to say

      • Gilligrt

        Nice, here we go! Bring on the talk of molestation and nonsense since you have a gross obsession with it. Seek help pedofile and “think of nithin ta say”. See look I put a sentence together like you did. What pedofile? Nothin ta say?! With ya na stinky ass? Haha you probably don’t even realize I’m clowning you.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        you showing what all you whites show — your moms stank out dummys that cant think of nothing to say

      • Gilligrt

        Stank ass pedo? I heard your stank ass got molested by your momma who who was a $3 whore. What nothin ta say wit your stank ass?

        It’s because he’s a child molester, just like the most homophobic niggas are the real gay people. When you constantly think of shit like that somethings wrong.

      • ilexx

        Something is definitely wrong.

        I don’t want to disrespect anybody in this PC era that we’re in but dude has got to be mentally challenged. It’s the only excuse I will take for why he keeps talking about the same shit over and over again but yet he can’t form a coherent sentence.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        no dodging – explain why you get them getting away with it

      • ilexx

        Learn to speak English.

        “Explain why you get them getting away with it”

        That isn’t a proper sentence.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        address what I said dumbass , no guessing whos one – talk bout the ones that’s showing your stupidass in millions of vids

      • Wetwork510

        I would engage in a back and forth with you out of pure entertainment but the way you formed that sentence lets me know how incompetent you are. So I guess I’ll pass.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        back and forth ? – yo dumbass aint said a forth yet – just another shithead with no thought about whites getting away with their culture

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        ignore like we did the whites everyday for 50 years shithead – already done , that’s why its worse

  1. THE.

    if Meek didnt piss on his own parade he would be on top 5 on almost every list for 2015, this year we all learnt its just not twitter b!
