Word, Justin Trudeau?

So, let me be honest, son. On the real, this post isn’t necessarily a “takedown” of Justin Trudeau. Frankly, I don’t know enough about his policies as Canada‘s Prime Minister to have a legitimate opinion, man. Shit, if people want to know about some of the tomfoolery going on in Canada, they should watch the “The Two Sides of Canada” episode on Netflix‘s Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj. In any case, I’m here to address White people’s incessant need to wear brownface and blackface. Seriously, knock it the fuck off, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it, Trudeau, the Canadian darling of the Left, has found himself in some shit. Now, Time Magazine released an article yesterday that outlines some fuckity-fuck shit that Trudeau did in 2001. Apparently, while he was a teacher at West Point Grey Academy, Trudeau thought it was a good idea to wear brownface and a turban to an Arabian Nights-themed party. Furthermore, Trudeau also admitted to wearing blackface and singing Harry Belafonte‘s “Day-O” in high school. All in all, Trudeau was knee-deep in all types of tomfoolery, bruh.

Now, for the life of me, I truly don’t understand White people’s obsession with painting their fucking skin. Yes, I know that Trudeau is from Canada, not the United States, but that’s still not an excuse, son. Shit, it’s not like Canada is on the other side of the world, man. I refuse to believe that he didn’t know this shit was problematic, fam. I mean, he said he didn’t believe it was racist in his apology, but come the fuck on, bruh. As research tells us, America brought blackface to Canada in the 1800s. So, I’m not subscribing to them being naïve about this shit, folks.

Moving on, I need to send (another) message to White people. Attention, my Caucasian compatriots: blackface isn’t fucking ok. Brownface isn’t fucking ok. Look, if there’s ever a time where blackface seems like a good idea, please backflip off of a fucking roof and reconsider. The proof is in the pudding and the history is as clear as day: this practice is ROOTED in racism. Therefore, stop with the cotdamn idiocy, son.

In the end, there’s nothing else to say, man. Ultimately, Trudeau fucked up, fam. By and by, I truly don’t understand White people’s incessant need to color their skin, bruh. Now, as a disclaimer, I have to say that not all White people do this. Sadly, I have to mention that because people aren’t smart enough to know that I don’t mean everybody. Anyway, Justin Trudeau can miss me with his apology, son. That is all. LC out.

So… Jeffrey Epstein Committed ‘Suicide’

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, this is one of those days where I have to get into my conspiracy bag, man. I mean, this Jeffrey Epstein situation is haaaaard for me to believe, fam. Like, after everything that’s transpired, his “suicide” looks fishy as fuck, bruh. All in all, he very well may have killed himself. However, I’m sorry if me, and tons of others, are out here calling shenanigans.

Ok, for those who missed it, accused pedophile Epstein was found dead on Saturday from a supposed suicide. Now, after a previous “suicide attempt” on July 23rd, Epstein was placed on suicide watch. Meaning, he was supposed to be closely monitored and checked on every 30 minutes. Instead, during the moment he “hung himself,” the two guards in charge didn’t check on him for hours. So, during this time period, Epstein “took his own life.”

Now, let me be real, son. Look, I’m putting so many phrases in quotations because this story is super shady, man. Shit, here we have a dude who allegedly ran a sex trafficking ring. On top of that, he had notable ties to Donald Trump, Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton. In addition, accusers have stated that Epstein and a former love interest, Ghislaine Maxwell, passed them around to high-profile individuals like Prince AndrewBill Richardson and George Mitchell. Furthermore, Epstein previously tried to off himself while in detention. So, after all of that, the authorities STILL left him alone long enough for him to kill himself? Nah, fam, I don’t know if I’m rolling with that story.

The way I see it, Epstein knew waaaaay too much, bruh. Hell, how many sick ass people could he take down if he started flapping his gums, son? Now, there is a legitimate possibility that he committed suicide, man. Frankly, I don’t know shit about shit, fam. All I’m saying is, this scenario is just a little bit too convenient, bruh. Listen, given his connection to so many different factions, it’s highly suspicious that he would die like this in federal custody, brethren. So, I’m going to need a lot more facts here, people.

In the end, no one will miss Jeffrey Epstein. Ultimately, I just hope that his death won’t prevent other dirtbags from seeing justice. By and by, everyone in his circumference needs to be taken down, son. At the end of the day, anyone who hurts children doesn’t deserve humanity, man. So, I hope the authorities round up all of these assholes, fam. That is all. LC out.

Two… TWO Mass Shootings In 24 Hours

So, here we are, son. Another day, another mass shooting. Wait, no, excuse me, man. I mean, another day and TWO MORE mass shootings, fam. Like, I’m at a legitimate loss for words, bruh. Seriously, I just wrote about the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting last Monday, people. How the fuck am I writing about a second AND third shooting in a week’s time? For God‘s sake, something needs to be done NOW!

Ok, let’s start with El Paso, Texas, son. So, Patrick Crusius, a 21-year-old from Allen, Texas, drove over 600 miles to El Paso. Now, as seen in his “manifesto,” he went there for the sole purpose of shooting Hispanic people. This fruit loop believes the country is being overrun by immigrants and his solution was to shoot as many Latino people as he could find. All in all, Crusius killed 20 people and injured another 26.

Now, here’s the part of the article that’s going to make Donald Trump supporters mad. Yes, y’alls President has culpability in this situation. Shit, for the last four years, he’s made it his life’s mission to vilify the Hispanic community. Hell, building the Border Wall was THE major policy point of his campaign, man. Fam, as of right now, there are still countless Hispanic families being held in glorified internment camps, bruh. So, he can’t stoke the flames for all of these years and then back the fuck out when a loser takes his words to heart. On the real, Crusius thought he was helping the fucking cause, folks.

Moving on, let’s talk about Dayton, Ohio. Now, 24-year-old Connor Betts rolled up to the Ned Peppers bar and fired at everyone outside. In under a minute, he murdered 9 people and hurt 27 more. Sadly, his sister, Megan Betts, was one of the innocent folks killed outside of the bar. All I know is, it’s absolutely baffling that he was able to cause so much damage in such a short period of time.

Anyway, when it comes to Betts, he identified as a Democrat. Furthermore, based on his social media presence, he supported Elizabeth Warren and socialism. In addition, he had numerous tweets displaying his disdain for the Trump administration. In any case, I’m still not sure what this fucktard’s motive was. All I can say is, it better not have been related to any bipartisan shit. Bruh, what kind of idiot thinks mass murder is an effective political tool? Like I said, I don’t know if that was his motivation, but at this point, I’d believe it, son. The fact is, people don’t need to die to prove a stupid ass point, man. No one deserves to be killed for the Democrats or the Republicans.

With all of that being said, let’s talk about the two main issues at hand: guns and White male terrorists. Listen, anytime some shit doesn’t go some White dude’s way, his solution is to kill a bunch of innocent people. Look, Timothy McVeigh was mad at the government, so he bombed an entire Federal building. Dylann Roof hated Black people, so he shot up a church. Now, Crusius despised Hispanics, so he drove over 9 hours to murder them. The fact is, domestic (White) terrorists are WAY more dangerous than another other group. That’s right, more deadly than the Muslims they always try to pit us against.

On top of that, the weaponry these terrorists have access to changes the entire game, fam. Bruh, Betts was able to shoot 35+ people in under a minute, son. Real talk, I don’t want to hear a debate, man. Keeping it a buck, if all he had was a knife, there is NO way he’d be able to do that much damage, folks. So yes, the guns are also a fucking problem, brethren. At this point, I really don’t understand how dummies can even argue either of these facts.

In the end, I don’t know what else to say, son. Ultimately, we have a gun control problem that no one wants to talk about. We have a White terrorism problem that no one wants to talk about. Shit, Dave Gomez, a former FBI counter-terrorism agent, admitted as much to the Senate, man. By and by, since nobody in power wants to touch these subjects, people will keep on dying, fam. At the end of the day, they can take their “thoughts and prayers” and shove it up their partisan asses, bruh. That is all. LC out.

I Finally Got Hit By The Facebook Algorithm

Ah, Facebook. I mean, what can I say about this website, son? It can be extremely useful and the Devil at the same time, man. All in all, Facebook has been an integral part of my blog’s success since I started writing in 2010. In any case, after numerous changes over the years, I’m finally starting to get hit by Mark Zuckerberg‘s constant updates. With that being said, I’m not exactly sure what that means for the future of my blog.

Now, let’s be honest, fam. On the real, I shouldn’t have to explain the heat that Facebook has received over recent years. Frankly, given the disproportionate amount of “fake news” that’s been spread across the site, Zuckerberg and company have had their feet put to the fire, bruh. In response, the company has made sweeping changes to how content is curated. Namely, it’s more interested in interactions between individuals than promoting businesses and websites. Obviously, I fall into the latter, son.

Look, I wouldn’t be me if I wasn’t transparent, man. Real talk, in the early days of my blog, Facebook was responsible for about 60% of my traffic, fam. The way I see it, I wouldn’t have a following if it wasn’t for the site, bruh. Thankfully, those early years have helped me build a base that continues to support me. However, I’m starting to notice a massive drop-off in “reach,” son.

Shit, let’s talk about this “reach,” man. Basically, Facebook allows users with a dedicate page to see how many people were “reached” by their respective posts. Now, up until a few months ago, I was used to seeing hundreds/thousands of people “reached” by the content I was posting. Moving on, does anybody want to guess how many people “saw” my post yesterday? Eight, fam. Eight! So, out of all of my followers and all of the people in my Friends List, Facebook only showed my shit to eight people, bruh. Needless to say, I was fucking tiiiiiiight, son.

Honestly, I can actually point to the exact day the shift happened, man. So, back on May 15th, I wrote an article about the tomfoolery of the abortion laws in Alabama and Georgia. Anyway, Facebook told me it was “reached” by 1,078 people. The next day, I made a post about the Wu-Tang Clan documentary on Showtime. Facebook told me it was “reached” by 11 people. Ever since then, my shit has been drastically off, fam. In the span of a day, my engagement on that site decreased by 99%.

Thankfully, I have a dedicated fan base who’s been riding with me for years. So, my actual views are as strong as they’ve always been. Keeping it a buck, my original fans are the ones who are keeping my shit afloat, bruh. The problem is, it’s been harder for me to attract new people. But, LC will figure out a way around the bullshit, son. Hell, it’s impossible for me to walk away from shit that I care about, man.

In the end, that’s enough rambling from me for today. fam. Ultimately, I just want to thank everyone who’s held me down from the beginning. By and by, it’s a great thing that a lot of the legwork was done in the earlier days, bruh. All I know is, if I were starting a new blog today, I don’t even know how I would gain traction in this new system, son. At the end of the day, it’s a good thing that I don’t have to worry about that part of it, man. That is all. LC out.

P.S. I’m also not falling for the Facebook gaffle of paying to increase my “reach.” Fuck that, Zuckerberg! Fuck all of that, fam. Good day.

Are Folks Surprised That Ronald Reagan Said Racist Sh*t?

So, here we are, son. Shit, the more things change the more they stay the same, man. I mean, the sky is blue, water is wet and Ronald Reagan said racist shit. Like, are folks actually surprised by this, fam? Are people really shocked that Reagan said some negative shit about Black people? If so, then those people have never paid attention to his political career, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, Tim Naftali, the man who ran the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum from 2007 to 2011, released some audio of a private conversation between then-Governor Reagan and President Nixon. Now, during the conversation, the two men were talking about a United Nations gathering. Anyway, during that meeting, the organization decided to recognize the People’s Republic of China. In addition, during the General Assembly, members of the Tanzanian delegation had a good time dancing. With that being said, this is where Reagan’s racism took off.

Now, during his convo with Nixon, Reagan literally said “To see those, those monkeys from those African countries… damn them, they’re still uncomfortable wearing shoes!” Moving on, in response to Reagan’s words, all Nixon did was laugh. Side bar, Nixon also called Black people “cannibals” in another convo, but we don’t have time for that right now. So, here it is, two former presidents disparaging an entire country and an entire continent. *Sigh* And people wonder why Black people don’t trust politicians.

Look, if anyone has ever paid attention to Reagan, then they shouldn’t be startled by this. Hell, a lot of Reagan’s political rhetoric and policies were based in bigotry, son. Listen, this is the same man that thought it was okay for people to discriminate against Black people in the housing market. Fam, he actually said “If an individual wants to discriminate against Negroes or others in selling or renting his house, it is his right to do so.”

Also, Reagan is the same man who was in charge during the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986. Now, for those who are unaware, this is the law that caused the 100:1 sentencing disparity between offenders who sold crack cocaine and offenders who sold pure cocaine. Meaning, minorities, who were more likely to sell/use crack, were getting WAY more prison time than pure cocaine dealers. Needless to say, this ravaged Black and Brown communities for years to come, man.

In the end, folks just need to listen to Killer Mike‘s “Reagan,” bruh. Ultimately, a good portion of his political identity was built on bigotry, son. By and by, I’m just glad that shit like this is coming out now. Frankly, we need to destroy the façade of America, man. All I know is, people like to pretend like this country was/is more forward-thinking than it really is. At the end of the day, a lot of our elected officials maintain the same type of mentality as Reagan. The problem is, they’re just publicly embracing the prejudice now. I mean, just take one glance at Donald Trump, fam. That is all. LC out.

Don’t Use ASAP Rocky For Politics

*Sigh* We live in a weird fucking time, son. Like, if we’re being honest, any and every situation can and will be politicized. I mean, just take a look at the behind-the-scenes tomfoolery between SwedenASAP Rocky and Donald Trump. The way I see it, a serious situation is being used to gain points in the political landscape. All in all, the whole scenario is fucking ridiculous, man.

Ok, for those who are unaware, Rocky is in some shit, fam. Now, earlier in July, Rocky was arrested for assaulting Mustafa Jafari in Stockholm. Moving on, the Swedish government is making it seem like Rocky and company just started a brawl and beat up innocent people. In reality, based on video footage, it appears that Jafari was following and harassing Rocky before his entourage put the beats on Jafari. In that case, it seems like Jafari might’ve deserved it, bruh.

From that moment, there have been a lot of conflicting reports about Rocky’s captivity. Shit, there have been rumors that he’s being held in inhumane conditions and debate over how much time he could potentially get. In addition, as a sign of solidarity, a number of musicians have refused to play shows in Sweden. Now, this leads us to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.

So, the West family decided to reach out to Trump and see if he’d be able to release Rocky. Now, in customary fashion, Trump hit up Twitter to tell Swedish authorities that they should free Rocky and focus on their own crime. In turn, Prime Minster Stefan Löfven politely told Trump to go fuck himself. With all of that being said, now the two leaders are having a public back and forth where Trump is telling Sweden that they “let our African American Community down in the United States.”

Fam, what the fuck is going on right now? Like, I have sooooo many conflicting thoughts about this entire ordeal. On one hand, I’ve previously been very critical about Rocky’s stances on race, politics and social issues. Real talk, I stand by everything I’ve said, brethren. However, I’m also a firm believer that a harasser deserves to get their ass kicked. So, Rocky has no business being locked up, son. Furthermore, it’s absolutely ridiculous that this is the stand that Trump decides to take. He regularly vilifies Black and Brown people in this country, but has the audacity to talk about another nation “letting us down.” For God‘s sake, what fucking world are we living in, man?

The fact is, Trump is only engaging in this situation for brownie points, fam (pun intended). Hell, if he were able to free Rocky, he’d just throw it in our face and ignore alllllllll of the other fuckity-fuck shit he does. All I know is, Rocky should absolutely be released, but he definitely doesn’t need to be used as a pawn in a vicious political game. Honestly, it’s absolutely gross that it’s even come to this point, bruh. Seriously, this country’s shenanigans never ceases to amaze me, son.

In the end, I’m just exhausted of the political trickery and positioning, man. Ultimately, a man’s freedom shouldn’t be used to further an image or an agenda, fam. By and by, I’d legitimately question the intelligence of anyone who doesn’t see the play here. At the end of the day, the prospect of freeing one man won’t undo all of the regular mashugana that Trump engages in, bruh. That is all. LC out.

Robert Mueller Can’t Please Everyone

So, let me be frank, son. Honestly, it’s amazing to see people’s reactions to situations when the outcome isn’t what they wanted. On the real, that assessment can be used for both the Democrats and the Republicans, man. The fact is, Robert Mueller plainly laid out his findings about Donald Trump and Russia. All in all, both sides are only mad because the truth isn’t enough to flatly push their respective agendas.

Ok, for those who missed it, Special Counsel Mueller testified in front of the House Judiciary Committee. Now, on paper, his testimony was supposed to shed light on his report regarding the Trump campaign, Russian interference, collusion and obstruction. In reality, both the Right and the Left were looking for tidbits to bolster their respective arguments about Trump’s presidency. The “problem” is, Mueller’s assertions don’t fit nicely in any particular box, fam.

Look, here’s the God‘s honest truth, bruh: Russia interfered with the 2016 presidential election, members of Trump’s staff interacted with shady Russian motherfuckers and Trump actively tried to circumvent the subsequent investigation. Now, with all of that being said, both sides of the political landscape are unsatisfied, son. I mean, the Democrats are unsatisfied because they can’t just string Trump up and throw him in the ocean. The Republicans are unsatisfied because the obstruction cloud still hovers very firmly over 45. Basically, this is entire situation is grey when folks want it to be black and white.

Now, based on Mueller’s report and testimony, here’s what we know: Trump’s only saving grace is the fact that he’s a sitting president. Like, the Committee straight up asked Mueller if Trump could be charged with obstruction of justice once he left office. In response, Mueller said “yes,” man. So, I don’t know what else people want, fam. Listen, people wanted Mueller to get to the bottom of what happened and he did. Meaning, his part of the job is over, bruh. All I know is, the ball is, and has always been, in Congress‘ court. Shit, if they don’t want to do anything about Trump’s tomfoolery, then what is Mueller supposed to do, son?

In the end, I’ll tell everyone reading this what I told my wife. Ultimately, to me, the scariest part of this current climate is not the racism, classism or all-out bigotry. By and by, it’s the assault on the truth, man. All I can say is, partisanship used to be based on different sides arguing about what the facts mean. Now, people don’t even acknowledge that facts are facts, fam. At the end of the day, we know what Trump did, we know what his team did and we know what Russia did. However, that doesn’t seem to be enough to move the needle, bruh. *Sigh* That is all. LC out.
