    Oh, I guess a white person never whines or moans about anything. This is 2014, and you make such a remark. I wonder what is in your head that would make you think that the color of a person’s skin has anything to do with their personality.

    “Terrell and Derrell Brittenum were twins who were featured prominently on the auditions and successfully made it past the Hollywood rounds in Season 5 but were subsequently arrested for identity theft and disqualified.”

    Seems their own actions torpedoed them, not AI. Here’s a thought, take responsibility for your choices in life amd stop blaming everyone else. I’m sure thats a foreign concept for them.

      daisy I have to agree with you … I said the same thing when I read about the white Teacher and the the Paramedic sleeping with the under age girls and the long list of white john that was caught up in the prostitution sting last week. To me seem like a good case of bad parenting and poor up bringing. And to Mike I agree with you . The families that are affected by the action of those guys sleeping with their children and the wives and girfriends of the johns is just crying for nothing.. It’s sad but it is what it is.

    So Im guessing this clown goes around telling people how “blessed” he is as he is riding around in stolen cars. Whiteys fault he was in that car. He is looking for a ghetto lottery.

    Memphis Representing!!!
