    Woah woah woah, all these people saying “oh boohoo not all black people are bad” need to remember one thing…a “professional” looking black man is mearly “cute” and nothing more. Like seeing a chimp wearing a suit and smoking a cigar.

      Stop being a bigot! You’re the reason there is hate in the world. Do I need to say that slower and louder for you to understand? Perhaps you are not as “professional” as the chimps you are referring to. When people think racism doesn’t exist it’s because they have had the fortunate pleasure to never have encountered people like you
