Let’s All Laugh At Tomi Lahren

Well, well, well, what do we have here, son? Tomi Lahren actually got herself suspended by Glenn Beck and TheBlaze. The crazy thing is, she got put on ice for the least likely comment. So, out of all of the stooooooooopid things this woman has said, her show got temporarily pulled for being pro-choice on abortion rights? Ain’t that about a bitch, bruh? Now, maybe I’m petty, but I got a good chuckle out of this story, son. After eons of regurgitating stale conservative ideals, Lahren got suspended for actually having a thought of her own. Welp, with all of that being said, I think today is a good day to make fun of Tomi Lahren.

So, Lahren went on The View this past Friday and shared some of her useless worldly analysis. Now, while speaking about women’s rights, she stated that she is pro-choice because of her desire for “limited government.” Meaning, she believes the government shouldn’t be allowed to tell women what to do with their bodies. Needless to say, that didn’t go over well with her conservative base, son. I mean, pro-life is one of the tenants of right-wing ideology, man.

For example, when Rick Santorum ran for president, he flatly said that rape victims shouldn’t be allowed to have abortions. In his words, the baby would be a “gift from God.” Shit, if that ain’t an extreme belief, then I don’t know what is, bruh. On the real, too many grown ass men are fiercely invested in what women do with their own bodies. All in all, Lahren picked the wrong fight with the wrong group of irrational people.

Now, before I continue, I’d like everyone to keep one thing in mind. This woman isn’t pro-choice because she cares about her fellow women. In fact, she used the Republican template of “limited government” to support her beliefs. So, in actuality, she thought she was riding with her home team and it backfired. That’s hilarious because it’s so idiotic, son. She thought she had allies and her constituents were like “NOPE!” At this point, maybe if she had more real thoughts of her own, then she wouldn’t have to rely on half-cooked doctrines to survive. All I know is, she continuously showcases the fact that she has no idea what the fuck she’s talking about, man. *Sigh* Go home, Tomi, you’re drunk.

In the end, no one feels sorry for Lahren, man. People with common sense already couldn’t stand her and now she’s at odds with her own peers. Way to go, champ! Good luck trying to get back in the right-wing’s good graces. She’s going to have to go extra hard with the racism, sexism and xenophobia, son. All I can say is, I’m not looking forward to the nonsense, bruh. LC out.

P.S. I find it amazing that Lahren can compare Black Lives Matter to the Ku Klux Klan, but gets suspended for this. America is a wonderful place, isn’t it? Siiiiiiiiiiiike!

Let’s Talk About The Blackity-Black Golden Globes

I’m Black, y’all, and I’m Black, y’all, and I’m Blackity-Black and I’m Black, y’all. Man, if anyone watched the Golden Globes last night, they would’ve probably heard those CB4 lyrics cycling in the background. All jokes aside, last night’s awards show was a great time for Black actors and actresses. After a year of exceptional work in both television and film, multiple Black stars were honored for their respective performances. Accolades were doled out for achievements both in front of and behind the camera. With that being said, let’s keep the party going and talk about all of our winners, son. Ohledoit!

Now, if we’re starting with television, we’ve got to give major props to both Donald Glover and Tracee Ellis Ross. First off, let’s talk about the fact that Ross is the first Black woman to win the award for Best Actress – Musical or Comedy since Debbie Allen. To put this into perspective, Allen won that award back in 1983 for Fame. To give even MORE perspective, Allen won that award before I was born and I’m in my early 30’s. Needless to say, it’s been a long fucking time, son. Ross has been killing it on black-ish for a while now. This honor is long overdue, man. Massive congrats to her.

Next, let’s talk about Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino. This dude had an incredible night, man. Shiiiit, if we’re counting his “Awaken, My Love!” album and his soon-to-be stint as Star WarsLando Calrissian, Glover had an incredible 2016, son. In any case, not only did he win the award for Best Actor – Musical or Comedy, but his show, Atlanta, also won Best Series – Musical or Comedy.

Keeping it a buck, Atlanta and Issa Rae’s Insecure were my two favorite shows of the past year. Both Glover and Rae made shows that were unapologetically Black and dared the mainstream to get onboard. Keep in mind, when I say “unapologetically Black,” I’m not referring to any stereotypical depictions of Black people. Both shows displayed the nuances of our community and depicted the fact that we’re not all a monolith. So, with a show like Atlanta being respected, it shows us all that we don’t have to dilute ourselves for recognition.

Moving on, let’s get to these movies, son. All I know is, all praises are due to Viola Davis and Moonlight. Davis won the award for Best Supporting Actress – Drama, Musical or Comedy for her role in Fences and Moonlight won Best Motion Picture – Drama. Now, even though I believe Davis should’ve been in the Best Actress category, it’s about time Hollywood recognized she’s one of the best in the game. She’s been a deity for quite some time now, man. They’re officially late to the party, son.

Also, to keep it going, Moonlight was the best movie I watched last year. If we’re being real, homosexuality can be a taboo subject in the Black community. However; this film does any amazing job of chronicling a man’s journey through self-realization and self-acceptance. There was nothing cliché about the storyline and it’s impossible to not be emotionally invested in the characters. Side note, I love absolutely EVERYTHING about Janelle Monáe. I’d find a way to marry her if my wife wouldn’t kill me first.

In the end, while we don’t need Hollywood’s acceptance to do great work, it’s still good to see them acknowledge our awesomeness. With or without their help, we need to continue pushing OUR art forward and telling OUR stories. That’s the only real way to shape our own narrative. Once again, congrats to all of last night’s winners, man. Good day.

P.S. I hate to end this post on a critical note, but someone tell the Golden Globes that Hidden Figures and Fences are two different movies. No, White people, we don’t all look alike and we don’t all act in the same movies. That is all.

P.P.S. Shout-out to Glover again for showing love to Migos‘ “Bad and Boujee“. That song is without a doubt the most enjoyable thing on the planet right now. Rain drop… LC out.

More Dumb Sh*t From Lil Wayne

So, Lil Wayne said some more fuck shit, huh? I mean, at this point, none of us should be surprised, but it’s still stunning nonetheless. It’s amazing how one man can display such arrogance while in the depths of idiocy. Then again, we’ve all been watching Donald Trump run for president over the last year, so what do I know? In any case, let’s review the latest brand of nonsense uttered by Dwayne Carter.

Now, I could paraphrase what Wayne said, but I’d rather let everyone read what he said for themselves. During an interview with ABC‘s Nightline, the interviewer asked him about his thoughts regarding Black Lives Matter. This was his response:

“That just sounds weird. I don’t know, that you put a name on it. It’s not a name, it’s not ‘whatever, whatever’. It’s somebody got shot by a policeman for a fucked up reason. I am a young, Black, rich motherfucker. If that don’t let you know that America understand Black motherfuckers matter these days, I don’t know what it is. That man White, he filming me. I’m a nigga. I don’t know what you mean, man. Don’t come at me with that dumb ass shit, ma’am. My life matter. Especially to my bitches. I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothing to do with me.”

*Sigh* I… Wait, no. No! I’m not going to do this again, man. I’ve commented on these sellout ass Black celebrities too many times now. I’ve already written about A$AP Rocky, Young Thug, Travi$ Scott and Cam Newton. Hell, I’ve even written about some other Uncle Tom shit Lil Wayne said in the past. As a matter of fact, that’s how we’re going to proceed, son. I want everyone to just go and read my “Racism, As Told By Lil Wayne” post. Seriously, either click the hyperlink or click the link at the bottom of this post. I’m completely over these clown ass Black celebrities, son. Thanks to all of them for being disgraces to the community. Good day.
