GHETTO, GHETTO, GHETTO. What is it with those ghetto rats and beating up women, EVEN THEIR OWN MOTHERS. Big, bad and black... but SCARED to to go mano a mano with another man [unless, of course, their in a car, with a gun]. I'm thinking this was not the dream Dr. Martin Luther King had in mind, if anything the present state would have been his worse nightmare, definitively not worth losing your life over.

All this over a SODA? Didn't think the truth would ever come out there did ya? All she was trying to do was stop the arguement he was having with someone else.
