Seth: Whoa. Why don't you just back the f#@k up man? "To this place"? What is that sh!t? Okay, right now, all over this great nation of ours, 100,000 white people from the suburbs are cruising around downtown asking every black person they see "You got any drugs? You know where I could score some drugs?" Think about the effect that has on the psyche of a black person, on their possibilities! I...God, I guarantee you, you bring a 100,000 black people into your neighborhood, into f#@king Indian Hills, and they're asking every white person they see, "You got any drugs? You know where I could score some drugs?" Within a day, everyone would be selling, your friends, their kids, here's why, it's an unbeatable market for us man, it's a 300% market value, you can go on the street and make $500 in two hours and come back and do whatever you want with the rest of your day and I'm sorry and you're telling me , you're telling me that white people would still be going to law school?
