A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of a Puerto Rican fugitive believed to be in the Cleveland area.

        i know what it means lol i was joking around of how some people makes a big deal out of a ‘description of another human’ using their choose of words. CT has used ‘African American’ before&it created an uproar in some people. if the word ‘black or even white’ is used in describing another human,someone would get offense with that too. i,personally,don’t get offended when someone is describing another human being by race.we all have done it.
