Absolute trash. White people shouldn't be rappers. White people, oh, I'm sorry, that's 'white' people (the capital is only used for Black people) shouldn't touch anything that Blacks started. Yet Black people can use, touch, take, share, etc., anything that White people started. People like this are the reason racism is alive and well today. How about everyone do whatever the hell they want to do and not worry about who STARTED it and who STOLE it.
Greg Tate is an rascist, idiotic bastard.

Eva Leger Sorry for the late reply but no, I didn't. I didn't need to. I read enough to be disgusted. I tend to steer away from things that disgust me in life. Especially regarding racists. :)

Peter William Warn "Absolute trash" is a description that can be used only by someone who has read absolutely all of the book. It's a shame you didn't because it means you have no credibility for your criticism.
