It’s Not Our Job To Make White People Comfortable

So, I won’t lie, son. I inadvertently started a shit-storm with yesterday’s post about Aaron Schlossberg. As of right now, my comments and direct messages are in shambles on both Instagram and Twitter, man. Apparently, some people think I’m racist because I referenced the fact that there’s a DOCUMENTED HISTORY of White folks fucking with people of color. Well, with that being said, let me be honest, fam: I’m not even remotely sorry. Look, it’s not my job to make White people comfortable, bruh. Frankly, it’s not the job of any minority. All in all, instead of feeling attacked, I hope our White counterparts will be advocates and hold the “bad apples” accountable.

Ok, before I continue, allow me to make myself clear: no, I don’t believe that all White people are racist. I mean, that’s just ridiculous, folks. *Sigh* It’s a shame that I have to do that, son. It’s a shame that anytime minorities tell our stories, the first thing some White people say is “it’s not all of us.” Dammit, nobody said it was all White people, man! Shit, I sure as hell didn’t! In actuality, what I’m saying is, there are MORE than enough instances of prejudice and bias to warrant a cultural change. For God‘s sake, instead of playing the victim, maybe these individuals can help shift the paradigm, fam!

Listen, only a fool would think that Schlossberg is some isolated incident, bruh. On the real, people of color see this type of hatred every single day, son. It’s a reality that we CONSTANTLY have to deal with, man. The fact of the matter is, our safety and well-being is more important than White people’s comfort. Keeping it a buck, I don’t care that some folks don’t want to have to deal with these harsh truths. Minorities shouldn’t have to downplay our pain just to pacify others. At the end of the day, all we’ve ever wanted is to be treated fairly and equally.

In the end, I hope this post clears up any ambiguity, fam. Ultimately, I thought it was pretty obvious that I wasn’t speaking about all White people. I was speaking about Aaron Schlossberg and anyone else who thinks like him. In addition, I’m well aware of and thankful for all of the allies who consistently work towards equality. By and by, a collective effort is the ONLY way to rid our society of the racial ills that have ALWAYS plagued us. That is all. LC out.

Get Aaron Schlossberg The F*ck Outta Here!

*Sigh* Another day, another White person showing their ass in public, son. Seriously, do White people EVER get tired of being petulant assholes? I mean, doesn’t this level of CONSISTENT hate ever get exhausting, man? All I know is, Aaron Schlossberg is just another example of Donald Trump‘s America, fam. An America where speaking another language (well, mostly Spanish) is seemingly unacceptable. Anyway, let’s go through all of the different ways that Schlossberg made a COMPLETE ass of himself, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, here’s why Schlossberg is about to get cooked. So, the other day, this fucktard decided to eat at Fresh Kitchen in Manhattan. In any case, he heard some employees speaking Spanish and lost his fucking mind. From there, he berated the entire establishment for allowing these workers to speak Spanish and demanded that they speak English. Furthermore, he threatened to call ICE in order to have these employees “kicked out of [his] country.” All in all, it was a totally ridiculous scene, son.

Now, I don’t even know where to begin with this guy’s tomfoolery, man. First off, it’s highly problematic that he automatically assumed that these employees were illegal because they spoke another language. Shit, after researching this clown, it’s appears that he’s Jewish. Look, the last time I checked, English isn’t the Jewish community’s primary language, historically speaking. So, should America have kicked out all of his ancestors, fam? Like, what the fuck is this dude even talking about, bruh?

Second, as we now know, this isn’t Schlossberg’s first time being racist on camera, son. Apparently, back in October of 2016, he was caught on film calling someone “an ugly fucking foreigner.” So, this asshat has a history of being a bigot. All the while, he’s a lawyer who boasts about being fluent in Spanish on his website. Side note, I love everyone who left his Yelp review comments in shambles. Moving on, my brain can’t even comprehend the levels of irony and hypocrisy, man. Hell, this man works in New York City, one of the most diverse cities in the world, and is shocked that people speak more than English. *Sigh* What the fuck is wrong with everyone, fam?!

In the end, shout-out to Edward Suazo for exposing this carpetbagger. Ultimately, the next time someone tries to front like Trump didn’t run on a platform of hate, just show them a video of Schlossberg. By and by, all of the hatred that he’s spewing comes DIRECTLY from the Orange One‘s playbook, bruh. All I can say is, White people have to do MUCH better, son. Frankly, this isn’t our problem to fix, man. It’s theirs. Real talk, they’re the ones with the underlying issues, fam. Not us. That is all. LC out.

‘Yanny’ Or ‘Laurel’

So, I won’t lie, son. This is one of those days where I’m allergic to real news, man. Frankly, I don’t want to talk about anything serious, fam. With that being said, let’s get to the bottom of this “Yanny versus Laurel” debacle, bruh. Side note, for those who are unaware, there’s an online debate about which name everybody hears in a particular recording. In any case, I want everyone to chime in on this banal exercise.

Now, before we continue, I need all of the good people out there to listen to the recording. Ok, are we all good now? Great. So, what is the consensus, folks? Is the voice saying “Yanny” or is the voice saying “Laurel?” Look, the answer is clearly “Laurel,” son. On the real, if anybody actually hears “Yanny,” then they also probably think that Santa Claus is real and that Tupac Shakur said “Suge shot me” on “Bomb First (My Second Reply).” Listen, let’s not be contrarians for the sake of being contrarians, man.

In the end, I’m up for the pointless argument, fam. So, who out there thinks the audio actually says “Yanny?” Let’s fight it out, bruh. Ultimately, it’s a cloudy Wednesday and I have nothing better to do, son. All in all, let’s get to the shenanigans, man. Good day. LC out.

I Want The Cavaliers & The Warriors To Lose

Look, I know what everyone is thinking, son. I mean, based on the title, it may seem like I’m hating, man. But, before people try to take my head off, let me explain why I want the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors to lose. Basically, as a lifelong basketball fan, I’m getting bored with the NBA, fam. Year after year, the same fucking teams go the Finals, bruh. All in all, I need some new shit to happen to keep my interest, folks.

Now, I won’t lie, son. I’ve actually felt this way for a little while, man. Listen, for the last seven years, it was a given that LeBron James and company were going to win the East. For the last few years, it was a given that Stephen Curry and company were going to win the West. From there, barring any random occurrences (like Draymond Green getting suspended in the 2016 Finals), it was a given that the Dubs were going to beat the Cavs. So, what does a dude like me have to look forward to, fam? On the real, we’re all just watching the same damn script, bruh. There’s no drama, no suspense and no thrill, people.

Listen, let me tell everybody how serious I am about wanting change. Now, I’m a New York dude through and through. Meaning, I hate ALL Boston teams with an undying passion. However, I’m so tired of the same matchups that I actually want the Celtics to beat the Cavs, son. Shit, does anyone know what that wish does to my soul, man? I’m actually rooting for a fucking team that I despise, fam. THAT’S how much I want things to be shaken up, bruh. All I know is, I’m going to have to repent to Yankees Jesus, folks.

In the end, my wish probably won’t come true, son. Ultimately, the Cavaliers and the Warriors will probably meet again in the Finals, man. Yes, I know that the Cavs just got trounced by the Celtics in Game 1. But, they’re going to have to beat LeBron three more times, fam. All I can say is, that’s a tall order for a young team, bruh. In addition, I don’t believe in the Houston Rockets‘s ability to beat GS, people. By and by, they’re going to have to show and prove before I believe the hype. In any case, I’ll see everyone in the Finals for part four of LeBron versus Steph and part three of LeBron versus Kevin Durant. LC out.

How Does Spotify Choose Who To Ban?

So, before I begin, let me make one thing clear: I am in no way caping for XXXTentacion or R. Kelly in this post. Frankly, if both of them got the Thanos Infinity Gauntlet treatment, I’d be perfectly fine with that. In any case, I’m only bringing them up because Spotify‘s new “Hate Content & Hateful Conduct” policy is a little weird, son. I mean, why were those two particular artists picked out? In addition, what does that mean for other similarly-accused artists? Lastly, will any of these changes actually stick?

Ok, for those who missed it, here’s what’s going on. So, based on their new policy, Spotify is removing the music of R. Kelly and XXXTentacion from their playlists. Now, their songs will still be available on the streaming service, but they won’t be visibly promoted. Apparently, this is a way for them to choose who they support, based on their “values.”

Now, in theory, I see what Spotify is trying to do here. Look, both XXXTentacion and Kelly have been accused of some heinous deeds, man. Shit, XXXTentacion has had a myriad of legal issues, including the alleged assault of a pregnant woman. In addition, we ALL know what Kelly has been accused of, fam. Now, here’s my thing: why were these two artists selected? Hell, if we’re being real here, A TON of musicians have been accused of some dastardly shit, bruh. So, where do we draw the line exactly? Is Spotify going to remove EVERY artist that’s been accused of something? If so, it’s going to be SUPER quiet for all of their playlists, son. Keeping it a buck, a lot of these musicians are just terrible people, folks.

Side note, can Black people NOT pull the race card in this circumstance? On the real, I HATE when our community does that, man. Look, I just saw Akademiks try that shit on social media. Listen, can we not use racism as a way to protect abusers, rapists and murderers? Ok, yes, I know there’s a double standard when it comes to justice. However, I’m not about to march or take a stand for a certified dirtbag, fam. It just is what it is, bruh.

In the end, I’m just trying to understand what the end game is, son. Ultimately, Spotify has to come up with a clear methodology on how to choose who to ban, man. Also, I wonder if they can even maintain this initiative long-term. By and by, I’m not necessarily mad at them for removing XXXTentacion and R. Kelly. At the end of the day, I just want to know how far they’ll try to take this and if it’ll actually work. That is all. LC out.

White People: Stop Calling The Cops On Us!

Look, now is the time to nip this racial profiling shit in the bud, son. Hey, White people, stop calling the fucking cops on us all of the cotdamn time! I mean, hasn’t the Black Lives Matter movement taught y’all anything?! It’s no secret that Black and Brown people are scared of police and for GOOD reason, man! The LAST thing we need is an unwarranted altercation, simply because White folks have an irrational fear of people of color. All in all, keep the fucking authorities out of these mundane situations, bruh!

Ok, for those who missed it, let me explain why I’m on ten today. So, Lolade Siyonbola is a Black graduate student at Yale University. Now, while studying in her dorm’s common room, she fell asleep. From there, some random White woman took it upon herself to call the cops on Siyonbola. Moving on, according to the authorities, the White woman stated that Siyonbola didn’t appear like she was supposed to be there. Oh, why would she think that, huh? Does it have anything to do with the color of Siyonbola’s skin? (*HEAVY sarcasm*)

Listen, this type of tomfoolery annoys the FUCK out of me, fam! Real talk, it’s so troublesome because it’s a SUPER common issue that people of color have to deal with. Shit, just the other week, Darren Martin, former White House staffer under Barack Obama, was confronted by police while moving into his new apartment. Apparently, his new neighbors thought he was a burglar. Also, in another incident, Kelly Fyffe-Marshall, Komi-Oluwa Olafimihan and Donisha Prendergast, Bob Marley‘s granddaughter, were surrounded by police outside of an Airbnb. Once again, the neighbors just assumed that they were thieves and called the cops on them. Lastly, we all know what happened to those Black dudes in Starbucks, son. So, I don’t even need to go into that again.

On the real, White people don’t seem to understand that they’re putting our lives in danger. Look, what if Martin had been shot in his apartment? Hell, that’s not an unreasonable thought since we get shot by the cops over EVERYTHING! How would these fucktard neighbors justify their actions then? Good Lord, even when we as minorities are minding our fucking business, we STILL get harassed, man! Keeping it a buck, it’s beyond tiring, fam. We just want to live our lives outside of the CONSTANT suspicion and scrutiny, bruh. All I can say is, knock it the fuck off, White people!

In the end, ahhhhhhhhhhh! Fuck, man! All of this shit has me HOT, son! Ultimately, situations like this make me question whether or not we really have allies, fam. Listen, Hillary Clinton is a “liberal” and STILL talked about being scared of Black people in hoodies. *Sigh* I swear, people of color can’t find refuge ANYWHERE, bruh. That’s all I’ve got for today, folks. LC out.

What Are Dre & Bow Fighting About On ‘Black-ish’?

So, as the title infers, I watch Black-ish, son. Now, I may not be as caught up as my wife, but I get my chuckles here and there, man. Anyway, over the past few episodes, shit has gotten real, fam. Basically, Dre and Bow are on the verge of a divorce, bruh. All I know is, as I’ve watched the last few episodes, I keep asking myself the same question: what the fuck are they fighting about? In my eyes, their relationship is failing for the same reason a lot of relationships fail: who the fuck knows?

Ok, allow me to keep it a buck for a second, son. Now, I’ve been in a relationship for almost ten years. In addition, I’ve been married for over a year. In any case, at times, my wife does shit that annoys me. For example, she’s always mooching off of my food without permission. Needless to say, I’m SERIOUS about my grub, folks. Side note, hey, babe, don’t hit me. This is all entertainment. Ok, love you, bye. Moving on, she hates it when I walk through the house with shoes on. Essentially, there will always be little things that annoy us about our significant others. By and by, the goal is to never let those small disagreements get in the way of love.

Now, Dre and Bow seem to have passed that point, man. Look, after twenty years of marriage, every problem is exacerbated. Real talk, it appears that every slight issue they have with each other has avalanched into something that’s bigger than it needs to be. All I can say is, it’s amazing how many real-life unions falter for the same reasons, fam. Ok, yes, a number of people break up over money issues and infidelity. However, a lot of people also break up over bullshit, bruh. I mean, that’s why “irreconcilable differences” are grounds for a divorce. Shit, folks reach a point where they don’t even know what they’re beefing about and just call it quits.

In the end, I think this fictional story is a perfect example of how NOT to conduct a relationship. Ultimately, before blowing up a life together, at least figure out what the real fucking problem is, son. By and by, I’m no relationship expert, but I’ll be damned if I don’t have an answer for the “how did we get here” question. At the end of the day, I have NO intention of getting a divorce, man. Hell, my life is great. But, God forbid if it ever happened, at least I’d like to have a clear picture of why, fam. That is all. LC out.
