I don’t have problem with you having a white wife if that is who you love. But when you allow that white wife to disgrace you #JahleelAddae your Mother, sisters and future daughters, then you sir have truly forgotten who’s shoulders you stand on and where you are from #GetOut SAD

#JahleelAddae toast to light babies. Well cheers to him for being another insecure self hating dude that doesn’t want his own children to look like him cause he doesn’t value himself. Bravo! @Do_OrAddae37
