and I just tapped on his window.

"My man, could I just talk to you guys

for a second?

Come on out for one second.

I just want to talk to you."

There's four young white dudes in the car.

They're like, "Just chill, bro."

I said, "Relax. I just want to talk."

Now, this is an old black trick.

Really, I didn't want to talk.

I was gonna f*ck 'em up.

So, if you're ever caught in traffic,

and a black guy starts saying

he just wants to talk to you,

don't open the door.

Even if he's me, smiling at you.

And they were like,

"Chill, bro. Just chill."

And the one guy in the back seat--

I don't know what,

he was just cockier than his friends.

He was like, "F*ck it, man!

I'll get out the car!"

And I started yanking on his door.

"Let me help you, motherfucker.

Let me just help you out."

And I didn't notice his window was down.

And he threw a snowball,

that shit hit me right in my chest. Pow!

He said, "F*ck you, you fucking n*gger!"

And then the light turned green

and they sped off.

And I smiled from ear to ear.

I looked at my sister,

and she said, "I got the plates."

And I was happy as shit because

throwing a snowball at a motherfucker

is a misdemeanor assault.

But if you call him a n*gger

when you do it,

that's a felony hate crime.

And me and my sister start dancing.

"We're gonna send this motherfucker

to jail!"

I didn't notice it,

but while I was yelling at him,

a crowd of all-white people had formed,

'cause it was an all-white town.

And I was like, "Uh-oh."

I thought I was gonna get jumped.

Then one of them white guys stepped up

and was like, "I didn't like that at all.

This is not what this town represents.

I don't want this goddamn stuff

in my vicinity."

And another white guy was like,

"Yeah! I didn't like it, either!"
