The Black Folks Enrollment Form: For Non-Black Folks

Access granted or denied?

 Share on TumblrFor a long time, I’ve always played the character that Black men play very well. It’s a good way to end up left, dead in the first 45 minutes of a serious situation, or in jail without bail money. That’s right, I’ve played the token Black guy in a lot of movies (yep, my […]
