Randi B. & LC: Having Babies In A Pandemic & China’s Racism Against Africans

What’s good, brethren? On this episode, Randi B. and I talk about having babies during a pandemic and China‘s racism against Africans over the coronavirus. Check it out on YouTube below, fam. Let’s go!

China’s Racism Against Black People

*Sigh* The more things change, the more they stay the same, son. I mean, no matter what’s happening around the world, folks still find ways to be racist to Black people. All I know is, China‘s got some cotdamn nerve, man. After infecting the rest of the globe with the coronavirus, Chinese citizens have the gall to harass Black folks. Frankly, I’m absolutely disgusted, fam. The fact is, I’m still surprised that I can be surprised by people’s ignorance, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, African residents are being targeted in Guangzhou, a city in China’s Guangdong Province. Now, the shit started hitting the fan when social media got wind of a racist sign outside of a McDonald’s. For all intents and purposes, Black people were banned from entering the restaurant. Apparently, the assholes in that city believe that Black people are responsible for the spread of the coronavirus. Look, despite the fact that the illness CLEARLY started in Wuhan, the Chinese community is trying to pin it on the African population.

Now, in addition to that asinine sign outside of the McDonald’s, there are numerous stories of Africans being evicted from their homes. *Sigh* I’m at a complete loss for words, son. Seriously, being Black can be fucking tiring, man. Like, as awesome as we are, we’re always subjected to other people’s irrational fears. No matter where we go, losers find ways to put their bullshit on us. Fam, how prejudice does a country have to be to spread a virus and THEN blame it on another group? All in all, fuck anybody who subscribes to this bigotry.

In the end, I don’t know what else to say, bruh. Ultimately, this situation just makes me want to spew a bunch of curse words. Shit, on a recent podcast with Randi B., I spoke out against the unnecessary violence against Asians in this country. All the while, factions of Chinese people are victimizing innocent Africans. *Sigh* People suck, son. People fucking suck, man. That is all. LC out.

‘Soul Claps’ With Randi B.: Peter Navarro, Yamiche Alcindor & Those French Doctors

What’s good, brethren? On this episode of Soul Claps, Randi B. and I talk about Peter Navarro‘s dumbassery regarding the coronavirus, the French doctors who want to test vaccines in Africa and Donald Trump‘s disrespect of Yamiche Alcindor. Check it out on YouTube below, fam. Let’s get the proceedings proceeding. Yessir!

Africa Ain’t No Cotdamn Testing Site!

So, let’s skip the formalities and get straight to the point, son. Listen, Africa ain’t no cotdamn testing site, man. Like, these scientists can’t be serious, fam. All I know is, I don’t want anyone telling me that race isn’t involved here. I mean, why else would outsiders want to go to a completely different continent and test experimental drugs on unsuspecting people? The point is, those French scientists better keep their asses in Europe and leave the motherland alone.

Ok, for those who don’t know why I’m mad, Jean-Paul Mira and Camille Locht have lost their fucking minds. Now, while having a debate on French television, these two scientists suggested testing a tuberculosis vaccine in Africa to see if it would work against the coronavirus. To make matters worse, they referenced doing something similar to how testing was originally done for AIDS. Keep in mind, as of right now, Africa is the continent with the least confirmed cases of the virus. So, why in the FUCK would these idiots go there to treat the people like guinea pigs?

Look, since these fuckity-fucks are from France, why wouldn’t they just go to Italy first? Bruh, Italy has the most confirmed deaths from the coronavirus in the world. Also, the United States has the most confirmed cases of the illness around the globe. Lastly, this entire shit started in fucking China. So, why don’t these losers just go to one of those three places? Why go to a place that isn’t nearly as affected and pollute the population? Oh, because it’s just a bunch of Black people, right?

In the end, I’m just fucking disgusted, son. Ultimately, even during times of crisis, people’s prejudice always rears its head, man. By and by, all of these turds need to keep their asses out of Africa, fam. At the end of the day, folks need to treat the people who need it the most. All I can say is, my African brethren aren’t lab rats, bruh. So, knock it the fuck off, people. That is all. LC out.

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.

I F*cks With This Beyoncé ‘The Lion King’ Album

So, before anybody says anything, I’m fully aware of the fact that I criticized the press rollout for the new The Lion King. Keeping it a buck, I stand by everything I’ve said, son. Shit, Disney did the absolute most to prop Beyoncé up as the star of the show, man. Anyway, I’m still going to give the movie a shot, fam. All I know is, my wrath will be in full effect if Jon Favreau and company ruined a classic, bruh. With all of that being said, I decided to give Beyoncé’s The Lion King: The Gift album a spin. After two listens, I really fucks with it, brethren.

Now, given the African influence of The Lion King, it was easy to surmise that Afrobeats would have a prominent role in the music. To that point, Beyoncé got a lot of dope Nigerian and Ghanaian artists to grace the songs. Whether we’re talking about Burna BoyTiwa SavageWizkid or Shatta Wale, a lot of credible African artists got their just due, son. Look, as a Carib kid who was raised on Calypso and Soca, I feel at home with Afrobeats, man. I mean, there’s a distinct commonality throughout all of the music of the diaspora, fam. So, I’m just happy to see all of this come to fruition, bruh.

Moving on, a bunch of other dope artists got a chance to flex on some of the records, son. Like, Jay-Z‘s on a track with Childish GambinoKendrick Lamar is dueting with Beyoncé, Saint Jhn is getting some much needed recognition and Tierra Whack is destroying everything in sight. All in all, I can’t really say there were any songs I straight up disliked, man. Frankly, this is a well put together soundtrack, fam. So, major props to Beyoncé, bruh.

In the end, I’ll do my best to separate the music from the movie, son. Ultimately, I just hope the film wasn’t diluted, man. By and by, I’m seeing the picture on Saturday, so I’ll judge for myself, fam. If push comes to shove, at least I have the album, bruh. *Sigh* Don’t let me down, Disney! Don’t let me down. That is all. LC out.

P.S. My favorite songs on the album right now are “Find Your Way Back,” “Don’t Jealous Me” and “Water.” So, get to jamming, folks! Good day.

Donald Trump’s Sh*thole Of Racism

*Sigh* I don’t even want to do this, son. Like, I really had to battle with myself about writing this post, man. In any case, my conscience wouldn’t let me cook if I stayed silent through Donald Trump‘s latest episode of fuckery. With that being said, let me go Super Saiyan on President Orange for what he said about Haiti and Africa. *Sigh* And here… we… go!

So, let’s get straight to the fuckity-fuck shit, fam. Apparently, during a White House meeting on immigration, Trump decided to THOROUGHLY disrespect Haiti and Africa. As reported by The New York Times, when a deal was presented that included protections for folks from both places, Trump wanted to know why America accepts people from “shithole countries.” Now, to add insult to injury, he wondered why we don’t except more people from places like Norway. Yeah, these are real comments, bruh.

Now, let’s unpack all of the different ways this is egregiously insulting, son. First, there’s the clear racial aspect, man. Look, in Trump’s own words, he’d prefer folks from a predominantly White country as opposed to mostly Black nations. Shit, based on that statement alone, we can clearly see that immigration isn’t really the problem, fam. Nah, people of color are seen as the problem, bruh. Basically, this is yet ANOTHER example of Trump’s CLEAR racism, folks. I mean, his bigotry is so obvious that I almost have to respect the blatancy of it, people.

Next, let’s talk about this unfounded categorization of Haitians and Africans. For one, immigrants from African nations are renowned for having a high percentage of advanced degrees. Hell, if we look at Nigerians alone, nearly 40% have bachelor’s degrees and almost 20% have master’s degrees. Now, for anyone keeping score, that’s the highest percentage of any racial group in this country.

Moving on, let’s talk about Haiti, son. Listen, when it comes to Haiti, their citizens have endured some of the greatest tribulations in human history. Look, despite being the only Black community to free themselves from slavery, their actions came with a cost, man. Real talk, Haiti had to pay France the equivalent of $21 billion to be recognized as a sovereign nation. Now, when we add on the treachery of the Duvalier family and the devastating earthquake in 2010, we’re looking at a country that’s never caught a break, fam. With all of that being said, why is the American President deriding a whole group of people for their own misfortune? Jesus, this man has NO fucking couth at all!

In the end, I’m never surprised by the tomfoolery that comes out of Trump’s mouth. Frankly, I’m just still shocked that proponents always find a way to justify his actions. Hell, while watching Fox News (because I hate myself), I literally watched Ann Coulter say that all Haitians do is fill up our prisons. Ultimately, the consistent and intentional misrepresentation of people of color is tiring, bruh. All in all, fuck America, son! That is all. LC out.
