I was looking at the movie (Creed) . In the movie , when adonis says rocky is his uncle, and Tessa character replies he white. I thought it was really funny for her say that line seeing that she is half white, and most likely has a few white uncles herself

Well seen the first 2 esp, and it’s pretty much like the movie to me, which you know I didn’t like

Saw the whole series now, actually a while ago. I still think it was a big waste of time, thank goodness for fast -forward.
