No matter the subject, white people love getting into other people’s business. It’s almost as if white people believe they are the “Referees Of Reality”. In today’s episode, the 4 Sharks unite to vent on why it is white people always think they have this ability to ref everyone else’s choices. If you know the Sharks then you probably already know the answer, and you know it’s gonna be a laugh riot as our 4 favorite heroes tear into this meat.
