NFL: Mad At Colin Kaepernick; Silent About Josh Brown

Now, despite being a diehard New York Giants fan, I’m PISSED today, man. The hypocrisy of the National Football League knows no bounds, son. It’s amazing how Colin Kaepernick could be blasted by any and everyone, but real scumbags like Josh Brown barely get any attention. Once again, the NFL proves they simply do NOT care about the nefarious activities of their players.

So, here’s what has me all riled up this morning. Apparently, Brown is a very well known proponent of violence against women. In journals, emails to his wife and even letters to his friends, he’s spoken openly about the physical and emotional violence he’s inflicted on his wife. He’s referred to himself as “God,” called his wife his “slave” and even mentioned being a sexual deviant. Here’s the kicker: the Giants knew about ALL of this and still re-signed him to a two-year contract during the offseason. However; now that all of the fuckery is coming out, the team and the NFL need to “investigate” the story.

Off the rip, I have several issues with this entire situation, man. First, let me start by discussing the coach of my team: Ben McAdoo. When asked about Brown, McAdoo said “we’re not going to turn our back on Josh. He’s a teammate. He’s a guy that we’re hoping makes strides.” Now, this is the same man who said he would be “disappointed” if any of his players “[pulled] a Kaepernick” back in August. So, let me get this straight, McAdoo. It’s ok to sympathize with a man who terrorizes his wife, but something is wrong with a man who’s trying to bring awareness to racial discrimination? Are these people fucking kidding me, man?! It’s mind-boggling how players can get away with violence, drugs and even calling people “niggers,” but taking a knee is seemingly an unforgivable offense. Like, my body is actually aching because I’m so mad right now.

In the end, let me make myself perfectly clear. If anyone had something to say about Kaepernick, but have remained mum on Josh Brown, Greg Hardy or Ben Roethlisberger, jump off of the nearest bridge. Seriously, the world doesn’t need people like that. Hell, even Ben had some bullshit to say about Kaepernick. Look, anyone who’s been accused of sexual assault more than once needs to shut the fuckity-fuck up, son. Apparently, women can be targets, but God forbid we speak about empowering a historically oppressed group of people. Fuck off, son!

Racism, As Told By Lil Wayne

*Sigh* Do I really have to do this again, son? Didn’t I explain this already in “Money Can’t Buy ‘Woke’“? Wait, didn’t I also cover this in “Can I Live In Cam Newton’s America?” Seriously, what in the flying fuck is wrong with some of our Black celebrities, man? Their monetary privilege has blinded them so much that they simply can’t seem to relate to others who aren’t as fortunate. Well, all I know is, I wouldn’t be doing my job if I let this stupidity slide. With that being said, let’s get to it.

Now, Lil Wayne was recently on Skip Bayless’ new sports show, Undisputed, and decided to hit the world with his hot take on race relations. According to him, not only has he never experienced racism in his entire life, but he also doubts prejudice even exists because the crowds at his concerts are mostly White.

So, let me get this straight, son. Simply because Todd and Rachel know the words to his songs, racial injustice is just a figment of our collective imaginations? Well, shit, why didn’t someone tell me sooner, son? If I knew that’s all it took to abolish racism, I would’ve dropped my album ages ago! Here I was thinking someone from New Orleans would be aware of racial bias, but little did I know, idiocy knows no bounds, man. I guess we should completely forget the fact his OWN city was destroyed by a hurricane and the government didn’t think to send aid for multiple days. His OWN people suffered under these conditions but racism doesn’t exist. Ok, Wayne. Ok, son.

Now, to be honest, I’ll be the first to admit, I can’t speak for another human being’s experience. Maybe, in his mind, he’s never directly experienced racism. However; even if that’s the case, is he really unaware of what’s happening in the rest of the country? Is he really unaware of our people’s economic condition, our peril at the hands of the prison industrial complex and the countless episodes of police brutality? As always, it’s baffling when notable Black people can’t see what’s happening around them simply because it doesn’t necessarily affect THEIR daily lives.

Look, let me keep it all of the way real, son. The fact of the matter is, if a Black celebrity can’t empathize with the treatment of other minorities because of their own personal privilege, then they’re no better than the White naysayers who completely disregard racial prejudice. In addition, when people like Wayne and Cam Newton make these type of comments, it gives detractors enough confirmation bias to not see the need to improve race relations in this country. With that being said, I can’t emphasize enough how damaging this type of rhetoric is.

In the end, all I know is, I’m not going to listen to a man’s opinion about race when that same man has a documented history of disrespecting dark-skinned women. Oh, of course Wayne doesn’t see racism, because he’s too busy hating on his own people. Massa got Wayne good, son. Real good. Man, get these cartoonish fucking celebrities out of my face, son. Good day.

Stop Telling Black People When To Protest!

Honestly, there’s really no need to mince words here, son. I truly, truly hate when people tell Black people when it’s appropriate to protest. For this particular post, I’ m not even talking about the individuals who think we don’t have a right to protest at all. Nah, this time around, I’m speaking to the condescending fools who believe they have the moral authority to tell us when/what we have the right to feel. In my eyes, these folks can take their opinions and shove it.

First, I’d like to thank Kate Upton for inspiring this post. While she isn’t the first idiot to express this sentiment, she’s the one I’m going to use to destroy this faulty logic. After Colin Kaepernick took his stand, excuse me his sit, excuse me his kneel, against police brutality and racial injustice, more athletes have started to follow suit. However; according to Upton, while we have the “right” to protest, for the “120 seconds” during the national anthem, we should basically shut up and respect the flag/military. Now, pardon me, but since when does a model, or anyone for that matter, decide when minorities should be upset about our treatment in this country? Even though I’ve already spoken about this in a previous post, I think we need to delve deeper into why bringing up the military is ridiculous when talking about our protest methods.

Now, before I continue, let me start my thesis with the national anthem itself. The Star-Spangled Banner was written by a man named Francis Scott Key. Now, if anyone does their Google’s, they’ll notice that Key was not only a slave owner, but an active anti-abolitionist. So, for the dummies out there, the man who wrote the song their telling us to respect actually enslaved our ancestors. HE ENSLAVED OUR ANCESTORS, MAN! Why on Earth should we respect a song that was written by someone who literally fought against our freedom? That’s bar none the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard in my entire life, man. Basically, when he penned the words “land of the free and the home of the brave,” he DEFINITELY wasn’t talking about us, son. I think it’s truly amazing how everyone is told to “never forget” certain historical atrocities, but others that don’t fit a particular agenda or narrative are completely glossed over. Miss me with all of that bullshit, son. THIS is American history too, bitch! Own it!

Moving on, let’s talk about this “respect for the military” everyone loves to bring up. For just one second, can we stop pretending like the military is beyond reproach? Now, if anyone thinks I’m crossing the line with that statement, I’d suggest looking up the “mustard gas experiments” of World War II. That’s right, son, minorities were used as guinea pigs to determine the effects of mustard gas on intended targets. So, even in our service of this God-forsaken country, we’re treated like subhuman, second-class citizens. With that being said, don’t talk to me about what people have done for our freedom. In addition, if all of these naysayers care so much about the troops, why don’t they do more to help veterans suffering from physical disabilities, mental health issues and poverty? If singing the anthem is a detractor’s only show of support, they might as well sit down and shut the fuck of the highest shut the fucks up.

In the end, the fact of the matter is, people don’t want us to protest at all. When we march, we’re judged. When we speak, we’re judged. When we write, we’re judged. When we sit, we’re judged. There’s literally nothing we can do that’s acceptable in the eyes of our oppressors. But guess what, losers? We’re not going to stop demonstrating just because it makes certain people uncomfortable. For anyone who feels uneasy, good. This is only the beginning, man. There’s a movement happening here and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop it. Good day. No, GREAT day.

The Argument Against Colin Kaepernick

Man, oh man, what has Colin Kaepernick gotten himself into, son? Who would’ve thought the act of sitting down would get a man in so much trouble? After not standing for the National Anthem during a preseason game this past Friday, Kaepernick unleashed the ire of damn near everyone with a platform to speak. While people are allowed to have their opinions, I can’t help but be confused by the stance some individuals have taken. Sooooooo, since I also have my own platform to speak, I’m here to debunk some of the half-baked arguments against Colin Kaepernick.

Now, let me begin by saying, there’s no such thing as someone who’s “too rich” to acknowledge social and racial injustice. That seems to be a prevalent argument circulating around in response to Kaepernick’s actions. Apparently, when a person is not living in poverty and despair, they’re not allowed to talk about anything real. So, to be clear, is money supposed to be the great equalizer? If a small fraction of a particular racial group is afforded the opportunity to join the “one percent,” are they no longer allowed to shed light on prejudice? Are they no longer allowed to have a dialogue about the issues facing people who look like them? Ok, wait, I get it now, son. The minute a miniscule portion of a community “makes it,” all of the ills facing everyone else magically dissipates. It all makes sense now, bruh. Look, I might, MIGHT, give someone a slight pass for questioning the timing of Kaepernick’s move. However; simply dismissing his ideals because of his tax bracket is beyond fucking stupid, bro. Stop the foolishness, man.

Next, there’s another argument being made that Kaepernick needs to respect the flag because of our troops. Now, to be fair, I have nothing but respect for any individual who puts their life on the line for our country. Frankly, our soldiers display a level of bravery the average person simply doesn’t exhibit. However; fighting for our country and racial injustice are mutually exclusive, man. Why is it so difficult for some to even remotely open their eyes to the troubling history of America? Newsflash, dummies: there were still troops when Black people weren’t allowed to vote. There were still troops when we were considered three-fifths of a person. There were still troops during the Jim Crow era. Just because these men and women fight for this country’s ideals does NOT mean Black people aren’t allowed to bring up the ugly truth of how this land has historically treated us. Since the age of the Founding Fathers, the military and racism have both resided on the same land. It is what it is, son. DEAL with it. That’s truly the only way to make the argument go away.

All in all, I don’t actually have the time to address all of the ridiculous theories regarding Kaepernick. I just wanted to highlight a couple I thought were particularly preposterous. Look, regardless of his current stature as a player, he has every right to take a stand, if he so desires. While some fools think it’s a bright idea to burn his jersey now, I guarantee if he threw four touchdowns next game, these “fans” would forget all about this. So, to me, all of his detractors can shut the flying fuckity-fuck up. The fact that people are more up in arms about his bench protest than the issues he’s bringing attention to says everything. Situations like this prove we’ll probably never have the “open dialogue” about race pundits love to talk about. No one really wants to hash these ideas out, man. Everyone wants to continue to embrace the status quo. That is all. That is all, son. Good day.

P.S. Really, Jerry Rice? Really?! You’re really going to take the “All Lives Matterapproach against Kaepernick? Honestly, I’m not even going to list the amount of ways you’re an idiot, man. I’ve already addressed people like you in my “Money Can’t Buy ‘Woke’” post. Go sit down somewhere and be silent, man. If your conversation ain’t about a slant route or a hitch pattern, I don’t want to hear it, son. Hush.

Donald Trump Loves The Blacks

Honestly, son, when is enough really enough? How much bullshit can one man spew before people see him for who he is? At this point, I legitimately can’t take anyone who supports Donald Trump seriously. For me, anyone deciding to give this guy their vote has already told me everything I need to know about them. Furthermore, in my eyes, any minority who’s onboard with Trump’s platform is either oblivious or complicit to his inflammatory language. In any case, his latest pitch to Black people further crystallizes the fact this man CANNOT be our next president.

Now, this past Monday, at a rally in Akron, Ohio, Trump decided to “speak” to Black people in front of a mostly-White audience. According to him, living conditions for the Black community are so horrendous in this country, we’d be much better off by voting for him. In his depiction of our current state, he insinuated our lives are nothing more than complete hellholes. He brought up poverty, bad education and crime at “levels nobody has seen” as some sort of justification for why we need him. In his eyes, all of these “events” have occurred under the watch of the Democrats. With that being said, apparently, the only way for us to have our slice of the American Dream is to elect him into office.

Look, I have SO many issues with his statements I don’t even know where to start, son. First, his depiction of Black life in America is DRASTICALLY exaggerated. Even during an interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN, he tried to pass off some fraudulent statistic about 40% of African-Americans living in poverty. When Cooper corrected him by saying the percentage is actually 26%, Trump’s reaction was to say there wasn’t a big discrepancy between the two numbers. Is this dude fucking kidding, man? A difference of 14% is a HUGE difference if these are the “facts” he’s using to justify his half baked theories. He’s essentially trying to say almost half of the Black people in this country are living in poverty, when in actuality, the number is much closer to a quarter. In addition, how can he blame the Democrats for all of our “issues” when instances such as the crack epidemic and Rockerfeller Drug Laws happened under Ronald Reagan and Nelson Rockerfeller, respectively? In case Trump forgot, both of those individuals were very Republican, man. Basically, these hugely, and negatively, influential time periods happened under Republican watch. Trump can thank his own party for a good portion of the poor treatment my people have faced in this country.

Next, how dare this man try to have this type of conversation in a room full of White people. He doesn’t have the wherewithal to come to our communities and talk with us directly, but thinks it’s alright to pass judgment in front of our Caucasian counterparts? To make matters worse, Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s former campaign manager, came out and said Trump won’t visit Black communities because it wouldn’t be a “safe environment.” Good fucking Lord, man, the hits just keep on coming! So, this presidential nominee is asking for our vote and somehow thinks thoroughly disrespecting us is the right move? I literally can’t comprehend how he or his aids think. He’s spreading fallacies while berating us and this is somehow supposed to endear him to our people? Get this fool the flying fuck out of here, man.

Finally, in the coup de grâce of asshole, this past Saturday, Trump brought the tragic killing of Nykea Aldridge into the political atmosphere. Now, for anyone who missed this, Aldridge is Dwyane Wade‘s cousin who was hit by a stray bullet during a gang shooting in Chicago. Horrifically, the mother-of-four was pushing her youngest child’s stroller when the incident occurred. Now, instead of simply sending condolences to her family in their time of grief, Trump used this situation as an opportunity to send another pitch to Black people. According to his logic, her death is somehow “proof” Black people will vote for him. All jokes aside, I’m so offended by this ploy that I can’t properly put it into words. There is absolutely NO depth this man won’t sink to. This woman just passed away and he couldn’t wait to politicize her death. On the real, disgusting doesn’t even begin to describe this type of tactic, son. I’m convinced this clown doesn’t have a soul at all.

All in all, fuck this dude, man. There’s really no other way for me to say it. In addition, fuck anyone who supports Trump too. In all seriousness, if I have a personal relationship with you and you support Donald Trump, lose my number, unfollow me on social media and forget any other form of communication. This isn’t about politics anymore. This man is a toxic human being and I refuse to associate with anyone who indulges in his brand of divisiveness. Good day.

What The F*ck Was Ryan Lochte Doing?!


Let’s just skip the pleasantries here and get right to proceedings, son: Ryan LochteJimmy FeigenJack Conger and Gunnar Bentz are absolute imbeciles. Honestly, bro, what part of the game is lying about a robbery? On the real, why would these clowns even think that was acceptable behavior, man? While this post won’t be that long today, I can’t let this moment pass by without taking all of these mark ass tricks to task.

This past Sunday, Lochte and the other American swimmers claimed they were robbed at gunpoint. According to Lochte’s original story, their taxi cab was pulled over by gun-toting thieves and one of the perpetrators pointed a gun at Lochte’s forehead. Now, here’s where things start to unravel. At first, there were four perps and then it whittled down to one. Then, the gun went from being pointed at Lochte’s forehead to being aimed at his general direction. With this original account already sounding fishy, a surveillance video came out which put this entire ordeal in its proper perspective. These cowards weren’t robbed at all. In actuality, these drunk ass fools desecrated a bathroom, pissed on the walls and then got into an altercation with the security guards who approached them.

After rehashing that entire saga, I have so many questions, man. First, did they not realize there were cameras filming their fuckery? I mean, I know they were drunk, but come on, man. Seriously, most of the gas stations I know have some type of recording equipment to document this exact type of tomfoolery. Next, why didn’t these trick ass marks get their stories straight before they started lying to everyone? If the goal was to pull the wool over the people’s eyes, at least have the decency to be consistent with one another. Lastly, why would they accuse these innocent Brazilian people of such an act? The fucked up part is, I’m positive they knew everyone would readily believe their tale, especially due to false assumptions about countries like Brazil. Sadly, they were right because everyone sipped the Kool-Aid at first. Sure, why not just blame this vicious act on the native Brown people in order to hide juvenile behavior? I’m sure that sounded like a fantastic idea to them.

At this point, there’s nothing else to say, son. These dudes are losers, and frankly, they should have their medals taken away from them. While social media trolls rather aim their crosshairs at Gabby Douglas, their preferred athletes are really out here disgracing our country. In the end, I shouldn’t be surprised, though. Lochte must be used to losing at this point. Just go ask Michael Phelps. Good day.

Can I Live In Cam Newton’s America?

Let me start this post by saying, I’m not sure what America our good friend Cam Newton resides in, but shiiiiiiit, I’d love to live there. A country that’s beyond racism? That sounds phenomenal, son. Where can I sign up for a trip to this magical place? Oh, wait, he’s talking about this actual land we’re currently living in? Well, in that case, I’m thoroughly confused as all hell, man.

Now, recently, Cam did an interview with GQ Magazine. While speaking about a variety of different topics, the subject of race came up and that’s what caused my Rock eyebrow to raise. It’s no secret Cam has received his fair share of bad press, especially after the way his season ended post-Super Bowl. Even during the lead-up to the big game, Cam had to consistently field questions about being a Black quarterback in the NFL. With all of the varying attacks on his ability, temperament or whatever else critics tried to single out, for some reason, Cam doesn’t believe these shots were racially motivated at all. In fact, he stated that we’re “beyond that” as a nation. Wow, that’s news to me, son. Well, since his memory seems to be a little fuzzy, allow me to point out a few past situations and see whether his logic holds up.

Let’s start with the letter written to him by Rosemary Plorin. After a game where Newton’s Carolina Panthers trounced the Tennessee Titans, Plorin expressed her disappointment in Cam’s behavior during the game. In her eyes, he’s a role model who should never engage in any type of “showboating” behavior. In fact, she was so bothered by his actions, she expressed the idea she didn’t even know what to tell her 9-year-old daughter. Man, get the fuck out of here. This woman took her daughter to a game where grown men violently crash themselves into each other and she’s worried about the fact Cam likes to dab? Are you fucking kidding me, son? Last time I checked, Aaron Rodgers does that damn “Discount Double Check” every time he completes a first down and I can’t even count the amount of times I’ve seen footage of Rob Gronkowski acting a fool somewhere. Are these players also getting open letters written to them? If not, tell that woman to get off of her high horse and enjoy the game.

Now, let’s talk about Bill Romanowski. After the Panthers’ Super Bowl loss, detractors called out Cam for not being very forthcoming in his post-game interview. It was obvious from his attitude he didn’t want to answer any questions and his demeanor was the complete opposite of the celebratory character we saw all season. Now, I’ll be the first to admit, even I thought he was acting like a sore loser, but Romanowski took it a step further. In a tweet against Cam, he stated “you will never last in the NFL with that attitude. The world doesn’t revolve around you, boy!” Boy? Boy?! Maybe it’s just me, but I was pretty sure Cam was a 27-year-old grown ass man. No one can tell me there wasn’t even a tinge of racial prejudice behind that statement. Do I have to remind people about the history of White people calling Black people “boy” in this country? Honestly, I’d rather not, son. And besides, Google is everyone’s friend. Just go look it up.

At this point, I’m sure there are readers out there who aren’t sipping the Kool-Aid I’m serving right now. Honestly, that’s fine with me. We’ll just agree to disagree. With that being said, a Black public figure of his magnitude insisting we’re beyond race as a nation is still incredibly damaging. Were we beyond race when the Justice Department released a report stating the Baltimore police department regularly violated the rights of minorities? Were we beyond race when Dylann Roof shot night Black churchgoers in an attempt to start a race war? Were we beyond race when officers pulled Philando Castile over because he had a “wide set nose?” I didn’t think so, son. At this point, if Cam has nothing constructive to say on the subject, he needs to just shut the fuck up.

Ultimately, I guess Cam is doing his best O.J. Simpson impression. However; I’d warn him to be careful with that approach to life. We already saw how the O.J. story drastically veered off course. Good day.
