Police Never De-Escalate: The Story Of Charleena Lyles

*Sigh* I… *Sigh* Seriously, man? A pregnant woman? A 5’2″ mother of four who was carrying another child? The police really couldn’t find a way to de-escalate this situation? Honestly, what the fuck are they teaching cops in these academies, man? Like, I truly don’t understand why EVERY situation involving Black people ends with death. All in all, regardless of the story that the authorities will try to tell, Charleena Lyles should still be alive.

Now, before I continue, let me address the inevitable naysayers. I mean, regardless of the situation, there are always people who try to justify the actions of the police. So, yes, Lyles may have had mental issues. Yes, the police had a checkered history with her. Apparently, her apartment was flagged “hazard information” by the department. Anyway, yes, she may have been holding a knife when the cops entered her unit. In any case, with all of that being said, it doesn’t change the fact that she called them for help.

Look, the authorities went to Lyles’ apartment because SHE reached out to them. She contacted them about a potential burglary and was looking for some assistance. However; instead of treating her like a woman in need, the police automatically went there anticipating hostility. For example, the station sent two officers to her residence instead of one. As of now, the cops are claiming that they shot her because she was brandishing a knife. Apparently, according to their “training,” they don’t know any other methods of de-escalation.

My thing is, so what is she had a knife? Lest we forget, Lyles was reporting a burglary. Why wouldn’t a pregnant woman with four other children in the house arm herself for protection? In addition, even if the cops were scared, why couldn’t they use their tasers? I mean, why do officers even have them, fam? They never seem to use them in the appropriate situations. Listen, if they really thought this pregnant woman was a threat, they could’ve tased her and then figured out the best way to proceed. Instead, they treated her like a criminal in her own home and killed her in front of her kids.

Ultimately, I’m speechless, man. Like, this has to be one of the most egregious miscarriages of justice. In the end, no minority is safe from the wrath of the police department. By and by, it’s an incredibly hopeless feeling when we realize that literally ANYONE can be murdered. *Sigh* What the fuck are we supposed to do now, fam? I really don’t know what else to say. LC out.

Get Bill Maher The F*ck Outta Here!

Yeah, I’m going to keep this post short today, son. I mean, in reality, there isn’t much that needs to be said here. All in all, Bill Maher is a fucking idiot, man. To be clear, I don’t want to hear shit about free speech or the fact that he’s a comedian. Frankly, Maher made a highly inappropriate comment and thought he could get away with it. With that being said, he now knows the gravity of his arrogance.

Now, for anyone who missed it, Maher was interviewing Senator Ben Sasse on the Friday edition of his Real Time show. While speaking about Halloween in his native Nebraska, Sasse expressed that the holiday was “frowned upon” in his state. From there, Maher said that he needed to visit Nebraska more. Next, when Sasse invited Maher to “work in the fields” with them, Maher said “Senator, I’m a house nigger.”

Ok, so, let me get this straight. A White guy is having a conversation with another White guy, the word “fields” is brought up and a slavery reference is made? So, why the fuck should anybody be cool with this? Look, does anybody defending Maher even know what a house nigger was? Well, here’s a quick history lesson for everyone reading this.

So, a house nigger was a slave who served the master in the house. They cooked for the master, cleaned for the master and took care of the master’s kids. In a number of cases, house niggers had lighter skin than the typical African slave. This came as a result of frequent sexual assaults perpetrated by masters on their slaves. In addition, a portion of house niggers ended up “loving” their masters because they didn’t have to deal with the backbreaking work in the fields.

With all of that being said, why the FUCK should anyone give Maher a pass, man?! Shit, if he made a Holocaust reference, I highly doubt anyone would claim it was “just a joke.” Man, since when were White people allowed to make slavery jokes anyway? Look, descendants of the oppressor don’t get to liken themselves to the oppressed. Ultimately, Maher was cocky enough to think he could get away with his ignorant ass joke. For that, I don’t accept his half-assed apology. Fam, he only did it to stay on HBO‘s good side.

In the end, I guess I lied about keeping this post short. Listen, I couldn’t help myself, man. Bill Maher is a fucking asshole, bruh. He’s a prime example of a “pretentious liberal.” Look, just because we agree on some political points doesn’t mean he can just jump out the window like that. By and by, Maher just needs to shut the fuck up. I mean, he was never that funny anyway. LC out.

Get Jason Whitlock The F*ck Outta Here!

Ok, to be clear, I don’t like Jason Whitlock, son. On the real, in addition to his preposterous social commentary, his sports analysis is also pretty trash. However; I’m not here to talk about some basketball “hot take” right now. In actuality, Whitlock needs to get flamed for the fuck shit he said about LeBron James and racism. Ultimately, these networks need to stop letting their “token” Black guys speak for the community. All I know is, Jason Whitlock doesn’t speak for me or anyone who thinks like me.

Now, for anyone who missed it, LeBron made the news the other day for something outside of ball. Apparently, some piece of shit racist thought it was a good idea to write “nigger” on his Los Angeles home. Thankfully, neither he or his family were present. Anyway, after this ordeal, LeBron was very candid with the media about the ramifications of this act. He spoke about how racism will always be a problem in America, regardless of an individual’s monetary status. In any case, with all of that being said, Jason Whitlock found a way to disagree.

So, in response to LeBron’s comments, Whitlock asserted that LeBron doesn’t face racism because he’s rich. Apparently, when a minority adds a couple of zeroes to their net worth, prejudice and bigotry just magically disappear. I guess Whitlock is not familiar with the story of Dr. Dre being falsely accused of brandishing a gun and getting handcuffed in his own driveway. I guess he’s not familiar with the story of Wyclef Jean getting handcuffed in a case of mistaken identity. I guess he’s not familiar with the story of Just Blaze getting pulled over by police and questioned about the “legitimacy” of his vehicle. Nah, I guess rich Black people never have any problems at all, son.

Listen, I’m not going to be the one to sit here and pretend like rich people deal with the same issues as the disenfranchised. However; material possessions don’t change people’s viewpoints. If a White person hates minorities, a bank account statement is not going to change that. In fact, writing “nigger” on LeBron’s house is a reminder that his money doesn’t matter. In the heart of the person who wrote it, LeBron is still considered “less than.” So, cut the fucking shit, Whitlock!

In the end, Black people like Jason Whitlock make me sick. If he doesn’t want to engage in racial issues, then just shut the fuck up, man! Clearly, we don’t need him on our journey towards equality. By and by, like LaVar Ball said, Whitlock shouldn’t comment on “anything but snacks.” Now, I’ll just sit back and let the “body shaming” brigade come and get me for that last comment. LC out.

When Will We Call A Hate Crime A Hate Crime?

Man, stories like this make me fucking furious, bruh! Like, we live in a time where we can’t just call shit what it is. Look, instead of attacking situations head on, people would much rather beat around the bush. All I know is, I’m not one of those people, man. The way I see it, the murder of Richard Collins III was a hate crime, fam. All in all, just one look at Sean Urbanski‘s life can tell us all we need to know about that coward. With that being said, the police and the FBI NEED to do the right thing!

Now, for those who are unaware, let me give a brief synopsis of this story. To begin, Collins was a US Army Second Lieutenant who was about to graduate from Bowie State University. In any case, while visiting some friends at the University of Maryland, Collins and company were approached by Urbanski. So, after making threatening comments to Collins and his crew, Urbanski pulled out a knife and stabbed Collins in the chest. Ultimately, Collins was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Moving on, upon further inspection of Urbanski’s daily life, we learn that he belongs to an “Alt-Reich Nation” group on Facebook. Apparently, this particular group specializes in hating on women, Hispanics, Jews and Black people. Now, with all of that being said, why are we confused about whether or not this murder was a hate crime? I mean, a clown who openly embraces racist rhetoric randomly killed an unsuspecting Black man. Listen, am I really supposed to believe this wasn’t racially motivated? Man, get the fuck outta here, son!

In the end, nothing else needs to be said here. Richard Collins III deserves supreme justice. His promising life was cut short because bigots are becoming more emboldened by the day. By and by, if the authorities want us to believe that they actually stand for something, then Urbanski needs to be thrown under the jail. Anything less than a hate crime charge will not suffice, son. *Sigh* I’m fucking tired of this shit, man. LC out.

Chaos At An Ariana Grande Concert

Man, I’m speechless right now, son. Honestly, I don’t have a lot to say about last night’s terrorist attack in Manchester, England. All I know is, the entire situation is fucked up, fam. I mean, beyond fucked up, man. Ultimately, I want to give my condolences to anybody who lost a loved one due to this unnecessary act of violence. In addition, I hope for a full recovery for anyone who was injured in the attack. At this point, we really all need each other, man.

So, keeping it a buck, I’d be surprised if someone didn’t hear about last night’s tragedy. In any case, at the conclusion of an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena, an explosion erupted. This lead to the death of 22 people and the injury of 59 more. As of now, not much else is know about the situation, except that Salman Abedi is the alleged suicide bomber.

Now, in terms of Abedi, he was apparently a 23-year-old British national who was “known to authorities.” Also, ISIS has come forward to claim responsibility for this senseless act. With that being said, I don’t even know what to make of that because ISIS loves to take credit for shit without any verifiable proof. Anyway, regardless of whatever organization he belonged to, Abedi took it upon himself to harm and kill innocent people. Once again, religious/political agendas seem to be at the helm of chaos and dispair. Look, enough is fucking enough, fam!

In the end, I don’t know what else to say here, man. Listen, this is simply a terrible situation, son. Hopefully, we can get to the bottom of this as soon as possible. In my eyes, someone needs to go down for this shit. Too many people have paid the ultimate cost for this shit to go unanswered. By and by, if ISIS is really behind this debacle, they need to be eradicated once and for all. *Sigh* That’s all I’ve got, man. That’s all I’ve got. LC out.

What Just Happened In Times Square?!

To be real, I don’t even know what to say right now, man. Honestly, I can’t make heads or tails of this story, son. All I know is, Richard Rojas lost his fucking mind in Times Square yesterday. Apparently, under the influence of PCP, Rojas thought it was a good idea to run down pedestrians with his car. Ultimately, my thoughts are with all of his victims during their time of need and sorrow.

Now, keeping it a buck, I really want to know this man’s motive. So far, journalists have only discovered a little bit about the assailant. From what I’ve seen, Rojas is a Navy veteran from the Bronx, who’s been arrested multiple times for drunken driving. In addition, his family claims that he’s been different ever since he returned from the Navy. According to their recollections, after his tenure in the military, he began abusing alcohol and weed.

In any case, Rojas has a history of being violent. For example, during his time in the Navy, he attacked a cabdriver instead of paying him. Also, he’s made numerous threats towards law enforcement. With all of that being said, I have no idea why this fucking guy was allowed behind the wheel in the first place. I mean, he’s clearly unstable, man. Now, fast forward to yesterday, Rojas took his Honda Accord, hopped the curb and began to rampage. This resulted in the death of Alyssa Elsman and the injury of another two dozen people.

All in all, in my eyes, Rojas needs therapy AND prison. While I do believe there’s something wrong with this dude, I also believe he needs to pay for his actions. *Sigh* This is fucking ridiculous, man. Much love to all of the people who were unfairly affected by his carnage. In the end, it’s a damn shame that people had to suffer under such random circumstances. LC out.

No Justice For Terence Crutcher

*Sigh* I’m devastated right now, man. Like, I’m having a hard time even putting my thoughts into words, fam. I mean, I don’t know what’s worse; the fact that Betty Shelby got away with murdering Terence Crutcher or the fact that I’m not even shocked by the verdict. Bruh, the jury couldn’t even convict her of manslaughter? Manslaughter?! A man was shot after his car broke down and his killer couldn’t even get the minimum charge? Honestly, why would Black people EVER trust in the injustice system, son?

Now, I could write an entire dissertation here, but what’s the point, man? What’s the fucking point anymore? All I know is, the cycle never ends. My people die and America doesn’t give a shit. The worse part is, America doesn’t even pretend to give a shit either. Look, Shelby’s lawyer said she was “elated” that she got off. Shit, this woman took a human being’s life and she couldn’t give a single fuck, bruh. At this point, I’m freakishly calm because I don’t know how to properly channel my rage. All in all, I just want to say Rest In Peace to Terence Crutcher.

Ultimately, I have nothing else to say, man. Fuck this shit. LC out.
