    I need more details on the alleged assault. That being said, "You Big Dummy!!" said in my Fred Sanford voice. Le sigh.

  • TheOwley

    Young man, YOU have a target on your back......stay woke, sit down and be humble.

  • You Could Never

    Born and raised in Germany. He doesnt have any concept of a target on his back or US race issues. Their main race issue is STILL the Jews/Hitler.

    Must be nice...

    Does he look like Bobby Shmurda or is it just me?

    And that Pepe Le' Pew stripe does nothing for him.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Thanks Bew. You stay providing the info for my lazy ass. LMAO

  • You Could Never

    even ESPN aint have it. AJC did tho. His ass gonna learn today this is not Germany.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    A lot going on in Brookhaven lately...

  • Wreckognize Game

    Who did he assault? His barber/hair stylist who did his hair or his self when he looked in the mirror at his head?

  • Yoni7

    But he's over here now.....

  • You Could Never

    He will SOON learn. He has no exp. except for this arrest probably. I think he gonna be a fast learner from here on out lmao.

  • Keepin’IT100

    ?.. That's funny as hell

  • Tennessean

    He has been here long enough. Ignorance is no excuse, which I think is majority of the problem.

  • Evillene

    Y'all just come for anybody and everybody...all day...everyday. Love it.

  • Kimberly King

    I couldn't imagine marrying a white man.. The most I ever did was use them and even that got boring. Never met a white guy who wasn't a trick... but then again they say it's not tricking if you got it! Who did he beat up? His girlfriend?

  • You Could Never

    There are USA NATIVE young black men who don’t “get it” when it comes to race, know they are a target etc. So we expect a rich, black, 24 yo European to understand? Really? Well okay. THAT is part of the majority of the problem is IMO. We aint even got all of our OWN young men together in thinking and steadily expecting others to understand and do better. Starts at home. His mama up there with a damn cave demon. But we expect xyz from him of all folks. well okay

  • Dahl

    Those Gambian roots are strong in that one. Was about to ask why he had umlauts in his last name until I scrolled on and saw he is German...

  • JustB

    Questionable timing for this incident when he should be beyond happy about his achievements

  • nick c

    I don't mind paying but it at least cost some azz ain't nothing for free on these streets. I been trick many times

  • Kimberly King

    lmao ! That's what I liked about white guys when I was fooling with a few back in my younger days.. money was never an issue with them. But then it's like of course money isn't an issue for someone who has it. It's different for a guy who either don't has it or doesn't have a lot of it.

  • SumthinSweeter

    Tuh. I can say for sure one story/situation for why one black girl I know was completely turned off by black men forever. And I completely support her interracial marriage if I don't support another.

  • dontgetblocked

    Another dumb athlete but suddenly their leaders when they kneel. Yeah, right.

  • Malcom Flex

    You never hear black males say they'd never marry a ww, on the contrary. Also you should ghetto.

  • MRiGOThim

    he has sum interesting facial features :/

  • MRiGOThim

    I'm glad back in the day I tried dating a white man, and he was the 1st person to introduce me to CONDOMS...I'm so thankful for him cuz the black dudes I was running thru b4 him didn't tell me SHIT & my parents never asked was I sexually active #BLESSED

  • MistaO

    Running through?!? Ewwww sexually / morally loose females are the dregs of society.

  • TeeTee

    I wish some black women would realize that....

  • Yoni7

    Yes he will.
