Mid-thirty-ish, white male speaker:

"Your honor, _we_ have this saying, 'bros before hos.'"

What do you mean, _we_, white man?!!! And it ain't no "before,"
neither! It's "b'fo'"!

Yet another sordid example of the appropriation of black culture by The Man!

Sigh! What can you do? ;-)


All say, "How hard it is that we have to die"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
