Obviously, I am not a black person but if I were I would be more than offended. [View all]

I really don't know how to explain this but I am going to try. I am getting this uncomfortable vibe of an old racist trope were these hostile white attorneys have tried to portray Mr. Wade and Ms. Willis as oversexed black people. It really is rather glaring and disturbing.
Why these attorneys have taken this approach is obvious. It isn't for the benefit of Judge McAfee. I am certain he is above this. It is for the benefit of Trump and the MAGA haters watching this.

It really is upsetting.
