#DTLA is not #Racist!
The black guy / is masturbating on Sixth again / These homeless people are getting ridiculous / There is this program up north, / where they nicely ship them away for work programs / It is really nice / I don’t know if happy adverbs can make an internment camp sound OK / Molina just cares about the Latinos / Molina hates white people / She doesn’t have a bike / She didn’t go to the bike meeting / We need more cops / We need more security / Another black guy / masturbating / I have a picture, I got up at at 4 a.m. and I caught him / My dog needs a place to run / Can we make that park private? / We are bringing back Broadway / ose businesses weren’t real / You know what we mean / I find your accusation that I am racist offensive / Here we go again with the race card, you people and the race card / My name is James T Butts and I am Black and I am here to let you know Bob isn’t racist / That black homeless guy is out of control / No one was even talking about race / Obama is the best president ever / This time it’s an Asian guy masturbating on Seventh / Did not know they could be homeless? / I thought that was a black thing / What? I am not being offensive just honest / I went out with an Asian lady once / She was real Americanized and talked too much / I had to break up with her / I am not racist, the Irish were the first slaves / I am not Irish, but I could be / There you go again with the race card / Race is relevant here / your accusations of racism / are why you people are masturbating / all over this place / And I voted for Obama, / I told you that.
