Black people ruined going to movie theaters with their yelling, screaming, and other antics during the movie where it was not an enjoyable experience.

Same thing with high school and college graduations, they have to yell and scream to be the center of attention instead of being respectful of others.

Like being around a bunch of toddlers.

“You ain’t black if you don't vote for me.”
“Poor kids are just as bright as white kids.”
“I was in a caucus with James O. Eastland (noted Demonrat segregationist) He never called me boy. He always called me son.”
"He said in the first 100 days, he's going to let the big banks once again write their own rules. Unchain Wall Street! They're gonna put y'all back in chains."
"You can't go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent."

It's no wonder they keep Biden in the basement. If they didn't he'd be handing out fried chicken and watermelon in Harlem!
