[Stop What You’re Doing And Watch / I Can’t Stop Watching] This [Amazingly Perfect / Absolutely Flawless] Buzzfeed / Wolf of Wall Street Parody Because [It Is Everything / I Just Can’t]

(via reddit or something lol no one reads this)

I mean, being a young black man in the South can be a difficult and arduous task at times, but at some point, after you get past the anger and some of the confusion of adolescence and you grow up and travel the world, the people who are stereotypically supposed to hate me, or the people I’m supposed to mistrust, have always been my neighbors. And for most of my life, we’ve been really nice to each other.

That’s my honest experience with whites in the South, and I think a lot of times when people say ‘Southerner’ or make those crass jokes, I, as the black guy, am supposed to excuse myself from the joke.

But we’re all Southerners. We all talk with these drawls and twangs. We all go to the race track on Sunday. We all go fishing. I don’t have a Dixie flag on the back of my pickup, but it still has mud flaps and big tires. So you’re talking about me, too. I am that redneck guy you’re talking about. I’m not him, racially. He’s not me, racially. But culturally, in the geography of where we’re from, our grandfathers did the same things. They did the same shit. I fiercely identify with being a Southerner because I value that culture. Everybody else thinks we’re country as shit, anyway. So why not just be who I am? I am Southern. I rap. I wear cheesy jewelry. I bounce around on stage. But when I take that shit off and go home, I fish. And I’m your neighbor. I do the same things you do.

a marine was in a college class taught by a liberal gay demon professor. one day the professor said “if god is real, he will suck my dick” after ten minutes of silence the tough marine got up from his seat and sucked the liberal aclu professor’s dick. the professor came. “what did you do that for?” the marine answered “god was busy building ford trucks shirtless so he sent me to suck dick”

hate seeing reposted content that doesn’t give credit to the original author, in this case my uncle.

…what? …why?

So… not the same age. Cool, got it, thanks Buzzfeed.
(Because i cared enough to look, Adele was born May 5, 1988, and Taylor was born December 13, 1989, so Buzzfeed’s mind-blowing fact that will make you never look at these celebrities the same way again is that Adele is over a year and a half older than Swift, aka “basically the same age.” Awesome.)
