A ‘Space Force,’ Son?

Man, what the fuck is going on in America? On the real, I’m amazed that Donald Trump can still amaze me with some of the shit that comes out of his mouth, son. Like, a “Space Force,” fam? I mean, out of ALL of the things happening in our country at the moment, is THIS where we need to dedicate our time and taxpayer dollars? Shit, are we in imminent danger of Star Wars and Star Trek coming to life? Bruh, can Trump spare me the fuckity-fuck shit?

Ok, for those who missed it, Trump is still out here being Trump, son. Now, on Monday, he made an out-of-the-blue announcement, man. Apparently, he wants the Department of Defense and the Pentagon to put together a “Space Force.” Essentially, this new initiative would constitute the sixth branch of the Armed Forces. Side note, this shit ain’t about the military at all, fam. Listen, right after telling a bunch of generals to start putting plans together, he stated that wealthy individuals who “like rockets” would be able to launch into space. Well, for a fee, of course. Hell, I guess they’re really trying to create those condos on Mars, bruh.

Look, this is NOT the time for the shenanigans, son. Right now, there are COUNTLESS issues that need our attention, man. For example, what about those separated kids at the southern border, fam? Real talk, one measly executive order doesn’t reunite families that have already been ripped apart. Also, what about the pipes in Flint, Michigan? Last time I checked, the residents were still dealing with filthy water, bruh. Keeping it a buck, I could go on and on, folks. Frankly, the United States has MORE than enough on our plate. We don’t need the extra shit, people.

In the end, I’m not falling for the gaffle, son. Ultimately, anytime shit starts to go haywire in the Trump administration, he comes with the MEAN misdirect, man. At the end of the day, I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I’m well-versed in the intricacies of “defending” space. But, I do know that there are WAY more important and immediate issues that need to be fixed in our country. So, knock it the fuck off, Trump! That is all. LC out.

P.S. If this “Space Force” actually happens, will a brotha get a lightsaber or a phaser? Asking for a friend. Good day.

Black Republicans Aren’t The Issue, Chance The Rapper

So, I’m not going to talk about Kanye West today, son. Frankly, my brain can’t even begin to process the fuckery he’s saying right now. On the real, I don’t know what’s worse, man: the idea that he really believes all of the bullshit he’s tweeting or the idea that he’s trolling us as an album rollout. In any case, I want to address Chance The Rapper and people who think like him. Look, no one said that Black people can’t be Republicans, fam. Real talk, people don’t hate Donald Trump because he’s Republican, bruh. We hate him because of his consistent disrespect and disregard of the disenfranchised.

Now, for those who missed it, Chance just tried to save Kanye. Somehow, he thought that tweeting “Black people don’t have to be Democrats” was some profound shit, son. However, nobody said that, Chance! That ain’t the fucking issue, man! On top of that, CyHi the Prynce took it upon himself to remind us that Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican. Ok, so was James Brown and Ray Charles, fam. Once again, that isn’t the fucking problem, fam! Keeping it a buck, Trump’s lunacy should be a bipartisan issue. Listen, people on the Right AND the Left should be bothered by what Trump represents.

Listen, when it comes to Trump, I’ve watched that man commit an unbelievable amount of egregious offenses. This is the same man who called all Hispanic people drug dealers, murderers and rapists on the campaign trail. This is the same man who enacted a travel ban to block Muslims from coming to a “religiously free” country. This is the same man who’s currently trying to block transgender people from serving in our military. This is the same man who’s trying to give guns to our underpaid teaching staff. This is the same man who’s surrounded himself with a MULTITUDE of people who are now under investigation. Need I say more?! Look, this isn’t a Democrat or Republican issue, bruh. This is an issue of a man who’s CLEARLY unfit to lead and we’re just letting him cook, son.

In the end, folks like Chance can miss me with this Black Republican shit, man. In addition, people like Kanye can miss me with the “I don’t agree with everything he says” rhetoric. Ultimately, that doesn’t make up for all of Trump’s heinous policies, fam. By and by, just because people may only agree with SOME of Trump’s ideas doesn’t mean that the rest of them go away. At the end of the day, it’s a package deal, bruh. For example, we can’t pay attention to his platform on jobs and ignore his platform on women’s rights, son. All I know is, folks like Chance need to fully develop their political and social stances before they open their mouths. That is all. LC out.

Don’t Forget What Colin Kaepernick Actually Kneeled For

So, let me get straight to the point, son. Colin Kaepernick‘s movement is starting to become convoluted, man. I mean, with all of the noise, debates and arguments, the original catalyst for kneeling is getting lost. With that being said, allow me to remind everyone what Kaepernick was protesting for. All in all, regardless of anyone else’s intentions, Kaepernick wanted to bring attention to racial injustice in America.

Now, before I continue, let me reiterate something I’ve stated before. Look, kneeling during the National Anthem has NOTHING to do with disrespecting the troops. Frankly, our brothers and sisters in the Armed Forces were never part of this conversation, fam. Real talk, the motive behind the protest was ALWAYS to bring attention to systemic racism, bigotry and police brutality. Listen, when we look at all of the Black victims of state-sanctioned murder, our anger shouldn’t be surprising, bruh.

Moving on, when detractors bring up the troops, they’re literally just trying to create a diversion. On the real, I have family members AND friends who have either previously served or currently serve in the military. By and by, their sacrifice has never been in question here. Keeping it a buck, anyone who is willing to put their lives on the line for their country should be celebrated. All I know is, nothing and no one can take that away from them, son.

All in all, kneeling for the anthem was never designed to disrespect them. Shit, if people cared for the troops as much as they say they do, then why don’t they pay more attention to the mental and physical issues of our veterans? In addition, why don’t more people pay attention to number of homeless veterans around the country? Honestly, folks are more interested in sound bites than real change.

In any case, when it comes to the anthem, the hypocrisy needs to stop, man. Listen, I’ve detailed all of this on my blog before. Fam, I’ve already spoken about Francis Scott Key, the writer of The Star-Spangled Banner. I’ve already talked about how he was a slave owner and an anti-abolitionist. I’ve already mentioned that there are more verses to the song that DIRECTLY reference slavery. Good Lord, bruh, I truly don’t understand why White people think Black people should embrace that fucking song. It was LITERALLY written by a man who wanted to deny us rights! Please, get the FUCK outta here!

Lastly, I’m calling bullshit on all of the NFL owners who’ve been kneeling with their players. Listen, am I supposed to believe that the same owners who wouldn’t give Kaepernick a job actually give a fuck about our rights? Hell, didn’t Dez Bryant previously say that Jerry Jones wasn’t with the shits? Now I’m supposed to believe he’s down for the cause? Bruh, how stupid do these billionaires think we are? Ultimately, all of these teams took a knee and locked arms as an affront to Donald Trump. This was NEVER done in support of equality. Meaning, they can take their bullshit gesture and shove it, fam!

In the end, I became more and more pissed as I wrote this article. Look, a protest that started with pure intentions has been grossly bastardized, son. All I can say is, I don’t want the spirit of Kaepernick’s sacrifice to get lost in the shuffle. Listen, that man risked it all to bring attention to the plight of Black and Brown people. All I know is, I don’t want politics and bipartisanship to dilute the message. Don’t fall for the okie doke, people. That is all. LC out.

Transgender People Can’t Serve America

Man, can someone tell me what world I’m living in? Like, I’ve always believed that I live on Earth, but this has to be the Twilight Zone, son. Fam, what the FUCK is happening to this country?! Is Donald Trump serious, people? Is the GOP serious, bruh? What part of the game is telling transgender people that they can’t fight for the nation? On the real, the levels of hate in this administration make my skin crawl, man.

Now, for those who missed it, Trump just tweeted some WILD shit yesterday. Apparently, after speaking with his “generals,” Trump declared that transgender people will no longer be accepted or allowed to serve in the military. According to his logic, our armed services need to focus on “overwhelming victory” and not accommodating their needs. All jokes aside, that’s got to be some of the most hateful rhetoric to ever come from a sitting United States President, fam. This dude just blindly disrespected an ENTIRE group of Americans, son!

All in all, I have a BUNCH of questions, man. First, does he not think that there aren’t already transgender people in our military? Shit, according to statistics, there are roughly 10,000 individuals who identify as transgender on either active or reserve duty. So, did their “medical costs” overwhelm the government before? Did they act as a distraction before? Fuck no, son! This move is nothing more than a pure demonstration of hate. Why is this type of bullshit continually coming from our highest office, fam?

Ok, before I move on, can I backtrack for a second? Now, my memory may be trash, but I’m pretty sure that Newt Gingrich said something similar about women twenty-some-odd years ago. Back then, he claimed that women couldn’t serve because they lack “upper body strength” and would “get infections.” So, basically, the GOP has a looooooong history of hating on anyone who isn’t a straight White man. Keeping it a buck, it just seems to be in their nature, son.

In the end, anytime I think the bar can’t get lower, it does, fam. Real talk, I was blown away by this turn of events, bruh. We’re literally watching an administration that’s built on the oppression of damn near EVERY disenfranchised group. At this point, there’s no justification for being a Trump supporter. I don’t give a fuck how someone tries to spin this, son. If anyone supports Trump, then they support hate. Plain and simple. With that being said, fuck ALL of his proponents, man! Every. Last. One. Of. Them! LC out.
