Whenever I walk in to Burger King to buy my daily 10-piece chicken nuggets, it seems like there is always a little white kid breaking his neck just to look at me.

Hair is a big deal to black people. Some black girls do not like their natural hair so they spend money on weaves, wigs, and fake braids. Black guys who think their hair is not naturally good usually go bald or use S-Curl which is a perm for men to make hair more soft and curly. We should all just go...
