New Music Fridays: LC ‘Broken’

And we back, and we back, and we back…” Yessir! Welcome back to another edition of New Music Fridays, people! Now, I won’t lie, son. I’m running out of things to say in these posts, man. With that being said, let’s just get straight to the music, fam. So, everyone can check out “Broken” below. All I can say is, I’m back on my storytelling shit, bruh. In any case, the song can be streamed/downloaded on SoundCloud and streamed on YouTube. Let’s make it happen, folks! LC out.

What The Nazis & Confederacy Have In Common

Ok, I have a question, son. I really want to know why White Nationalists are so enamored with the Nazis and the Confederacy. I mean, we’re talking about two factions who LITERALLY went to war with America. Oh, by the way, both groups lost in epic fashion, man. So, how can they claim to be patriots when they’re embracing groups that were actually at odds with this country? All in all, these facts alone debunk EVERYTHING about this idiotic movement. Way to champion losers, losers!

Now, let’s take a brief trip down memory lane, people. At this point, everyone should know who Adolf Hitler is. During World War II, the Nazi leader thought he wanted smoke and ended up getting completely mopped up. Fam, Hitler was such a bitch, he took his own life instead of facing the consequences of his actions. So, when these White Supremacists wear that swastika, they’re wearing the symbol of a man who got his men killed and then shot himself. By and by, their leader was a fucking coward, man!

Moving on, let’s talk about the Confederacy. These clowncakes literally wanted to secede from the United States. Keeping it a buck, they didn’t want to give up their slaves and thought war was the better option. So, if we add all of this up, these traitors were enemies to America who were all about Black oppression. Ultimately, Robert E. Lee and company had to tuck their tails between their legs and come crawling back to the Union. Real talk, when these fools wave the Confederate flag around now, they’re waving the flag of a group that surrendered. Wow, how noble, son!

In the end, I don’t understand the White Nationalist love affair with losers. The Nazis fell, the Confederacy fell, and now these asshats are draping themselves in cornball memorabilia. Look, I don’t give a fuck about legacy, man. It’s not my fault that these folks’ ancestors were on the wrong side of history. Oh, great-granddad fought for the Confederacy? Guess what? He lost, son. Going forward, I really hope all of these wingdings remember their cowardly predecessors before they uplift their banners. Then again, all losers know how to do is lose, bruh. LC out.

Get Kim Kardashian The F*ck Outta Here!

So, let me get this straight, son. Kim Kardashian, a non-Black woman, is telling Black people to get over racist comments made by a White man? The same Kim Kardashian who’s married to a Black man and has two biracial children? Bruh, can someone PLEASE get this woman the fuck outta here, man?! Like, she can’t be serious, fam. Honestly, where does she even get off thinking she can make a statement like that? All I want to know is, why do folks keep supporting this idiot?

Now, before I continue disintegrating Kardashian, let’s talk about Jeffree Star. Star is the racist ass makeup artist who Kardashian inexplicably defended. So, what makes Star racist? Ok, let’s examine some of his past quotes. This is a man who once told someone “I win by having diamond rims, and you win by being a poor Mexican.” This is also a man who once told someone “shut up, you fucking nigger bitch!” This is a man who once asked someone “will you beat that nigger up for me?” In addition, this is a man who once said “she’s a fucking nigger! You’re a nigger, you fucking ugly ass bitch! Fuck you, ho!” With all of that being said, this is the person that Kardashian is caping for.

Moving on, when Kardashian’s fans brought up the fact that Star is a RAGING bigot, she called them “petty.” Also, she talked about how he’s changed and spoke on how he gives her great makeup tips. Motherfucker, what? What?! So, Black people are supposed to let all of this shit slide because this fucking clowncake knows how to contour? Fam, certain people make me want to jump off of a bridge. Not to die, but to get enough momentum to kick them in the fucking face.

As expected, Kardashian later retracted her statements. She claimed that she was “naive” to what Star previously said. Well, if that was the case, then why the fuck did she open her cotdamn mouth in the first place, son?! Look, if she had no clue what she was talking about, then she should’ve just shut the flying fuckity-fuck up! All in all, she’s either a racism apologist or a flaming dumbass. Either way, Kardashian comes out of this looking like an imbecile. Maybe next time, she should think about her BLACK husband and her HALF-BLACK kids before she comes to a bigot’s aid.

In the end, I’ve had enough of Kardashian and her entire extended family. On the real, they have no problem profiting off of Black culture, but they continually showcase their lack of understanding and empathy. Ultimately, if any minority continues to support them, then I already know everything I need to know about that person. Yeah, it’s that real, son. By and by, if a person is racist or blind to racism, then they don’t deserve our attention. Plain and simple, man. LC out.

Is It Cool To Be Cool With The Fool You Cheated With?

Disclaimer: Spoilers, bruh. Don’t say I didn’t warn you, fam.

So, let me paint a quick picture here, son. Ok, Man A and Woman A are in a relationship. Man A cheats on Woman A with Woman B. Woman A decides to call off the relationship because of the infidelity. Is it now cool for Man A to be friends with Woman B? Now, in my opinion, anyone with a brain would say “hell fucking no!” With that being said, I’m not sure why some women are cool with Issa being friends with Daniel on Insecure. I mean, if the genders were reversed, I’m pretty sure folks would be crying bloody murder, fam.

Now, at this point, anyone who watches this show knows what’s going on, man. Last season, Issa cheated on Lawrence with Daniel. This season, Lawrence said “fuck it” to the relationship and got his own apartment. However; during the latest episode, we see Issa at a day party chopping it up with Daniel. Granted, their interaction is awkward as fuck in the beginning, but by the end, they’re sitting and laughing next to each other at a diner. Man, what part of the game is that, son?

To be clear, I’m well aware of the fact that Issa is technically single now. However; why would she want to be around the person that ruined her relationship? A relationship she still wanted? Now, if Lawrence decided to come back around, does anyone think he’d be thrilled to hear about the company she’s kept? Yes, I know she’s now free to smash anyone, but principle is a motherfucker, man. Some people are just off limits, son. Daniel happens to be one of those people.

Ultimately, I don’t care if people are “Team Issa” or “Team Lawrence.” I would say the same exact thing if Lawrence was the one in Issa’s shoes. Look, it’s simply not cool for someone to be cool with the fool they cheated with. Shit, I know damn well my wife would murder me if I did some tomfoolery like that. Murder me AND frame the other woman, son. Needless to say, I don’t want no smoke, fam. That is all. LC out.

A Letter To Trump: The Hate ‘On Many Sides’

Dear Donald Trump,

You’ve really dropped the ball on this one, man. I mean, you drop the ball on most things, but you’ve really missed an opportunity here. For someone who claims to be “tough,” your inability to condemn White Supremacists is cowardly at best. Nazi/Ku Klux Klan enthusiasts took over Charlottesville, Virginia and you couldn’t even mention them by name. Instead, you spoke of imaginary hate “on many sides.” All I want to know is, when will you stop cozing up to the bigots who put you in office?

Now, to be clear, racists helped put you in office. Don’t believe me? Just ask David Duke. The former Imperial Wizard of the KKK said as much when he attacked you on Twitter. He was upset that you spoke against the Unite the Right rally, claiming that they’re just fulfilling your vision. Wait, let me say that again, son. The former leader of the KKK believes that the alt-right is fulfilling YOUR vision. At this point, I don’t give a fuck if you believe that you’re racist or not. All you need to know is, racists believe in YOUR message. Frankly, it empowers them to take their bigotry to the streets.

With all of that being said, let’s examine how you’ve handled this situation. After counter-protesters took to the streets to confront your swastika-wearing/Confederate flag-waving supporters, James Alex Fields decided to spring into action. To further the White Nationalist agenda, Fields took his car and plowed into a group of counter-protesters. In the process, he injured 19 people and killed Heather Heyer. Now, after ALL of that, you STILL couldn’t bring yourself to condemn White Supremacists. My God, you’re a fucking disgusting human being, man!

On the real, I’m glad that even Republicans are calling you out on your bullshit. Look, this isn’t the time to pussyfoot on this issue, man. Bruh, it’s so easy for you to call EVERYTHING Radical Islamic Terrorism, but you can’t say a word about domestic terrorism. The fact of the matter is, homegrown terrorists are WAY more dangerous to American citizens than ISIS and al-Qaeda combined! But, here you are, still pandering to your racist ass base instead of comforting the country. All in all, it seems as if bipartisanship knows no bounds, son.

In the end, fuck you, bruh! You’re one of the worst things that’s ever happened to this country, and that’s saying a lot. Keeping it a buck, the current climate of the United States rests squarely on your shoulders. Shit, your rhetoric gave them the platform to rise up. By and by, there aren’t “many sides” here. A White Supremacist murdered a woman and you’re too much of a bitch to admit it. Ultimately, this is exactly what you’re not my President.

Sincerely,

A man who legitimately hates everything about you

The ‘Hot Water Challenge’ Needs To Stop!

Ok, can I put my dad pants on for a second? So, the other day, my wife and I had a conversation with our oldest son about the “Hot Water Challenge.” This came after we heard about what happened to 8-year-old Ki’ari Pope in Florida. Apparently, her cousin dared her to drink boiling water through a straw. From there, Pope burned her throat, got a tracheotomy, but still eventually died from respiratory issues. On the real, the fact that this little girl was only one year older than my son shook me to my core.

To make matters worse, Pope hasn’t been the only child to suffer from this outlandish challenge. More and more stories are popping up about kids doing serious damage to themselves. For instance, back in July, 10-year-old Wesley Smith of North Carolina received third degree burns after he and his stepbrother tried to get in on the movement. It seems as if they got the idea from YouTube videos. In another case, right here in the Bronx, the friends of 11-year-old Jamoneisha Merritt poured boiling water on her face while she slept. Needless to say, her face has been ravaged, man.

Now, some people may be thinking “what’s wrong with these kids?” But remember, most children have no common sense, son. Like, I did TONS of stupid shit when I was a child. For example, who told me it was a good idea to backflip off of the top of a swing, man? On the real, I’m lucky that I got out of there with only a sprained ankle. With that being said, kids feel like they’re invincible and it leads them to doing all manners of tomfoolery, fam. In any case, we as parents need to reinforce the risks of dangerous actions to our children, bruh.

In the end, even though I think this challenge is beyond dumb, I can’t really fault the kids, son. Keeping it a buck, I can’t fault the adults either, man. The fact of the matter is, being a parent is a lot of trial and error, bruh. The sad part is, in some cases, it takes tragedy for young people to learn. All I know is, as of right now, we need to tell our kids to stay far, far, faaaar away from the “Hot Water Challenge.” That is all. LC out.

Thick Rihanna Is The GOAT!

Disclaimer: This post is an unabashed Rihanna love fest. Haters will be handled with swift and vengeful justice.

So, let me keep it a buck, son. I was in love with the Rihanna in the first picture. I was in love with the Rihanna in the second picture. I was also in love with the Rihanna in the third picture. However; the Rihanna in that fourth picture can’t be measured by Earthly science or mathematics, man. I mean, Thick Rihanna is the greatest all of time, fam. Hands down. Frankly, I don’t want to hear any debates, people. Let’s just all praise whatever food Ms. Fenty has been eating, bruh.

Now, for those who missed it, BarbadosCrop Over festival just went down. As a man who’s half Bajan and half Vincentian, this festival means a lot to my culture. With that being said, Rihanna, a born and bred Bajan, has always frequented the celebration. Meaning, she’s always been decked out in the finest of costumes. However; the way she looked this year made me make the Carmelo Anthony risk it all” face, son. Like, her newfound thickness is a sight for sore eyes, man. Shit, she almost made me forget that the American government is in shambles, fam.

To be fair, the internet has been talking about Rih Rih’s weight gain for a little while now. On the real, social media has debated whether she’s fine, fat or something in between. All I know is, fuck anybody who doesn’t appreciate what Robyn is blessing us with, son! Look, even Chris Brown rose up from the abyss to start liking pictures, man. Listen, the curves are just undeniable, folks. All in all, I can’t critique anything she’s doing, bruh.

In the end, there’s nothing else to be said, son. Let’s just all do a praise dance in honor of Thick Rihanna. Lastly, to the rest of my congregation, feel free to enjoy the pictures below. Thanks a lot, Baby JesusLC out.
