A Real Question For The ‘Blue Lives Matter’ Delegation

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, deep thoughts can surface at the weirdest times, man. Somehow, UFC-sponsored violence led my brain to the Black Lives Matter and Blue Lives Matter delegations. Shit, the bad blood between Tyron Woodley and Colby Covington brought out all of the social media warriors, fam. But, after wading through scores of unnecessary comments, I have a real question for the Blue Lives Matter crowd: do y’all really believe that cops are infallible?

Ok, as a quick summary, here’s what led me to this post. Now, Covington, a fighter in the UFC’s Welterweight division, is an avid Donald Trump fan and MAGA supporter. Woodley, the former Welterweight champion, took it upon himself to represent BLM. In the lead-up to the fight, Covington took to Twitter to say that he’s representing all police and military officers who’ve been “vilified.” In addition, after Covington put a thorough beating on Woodley, he proceeded to call BLM a “terrorist organization” and that Woodley was a “Marxist.”

Now, here’s where my confusion comes in. Real talk, I’ll never understand why (mostly) White people believe that BLM is some affront to law enforcement. Like, we’re literally asking for them to stop killing us and to be held accountable for misdeeds. That’s all. That’s literally all. Frankly, I don’t understand why they can’t support cops AND acknowledge when they do something wrong. Bruh, it’s ACTUALLY possible to do both. The way I see it, if Blues Live Matter really supported the police, they would want them to be fair and balanced with ALL of America‘s citizens.

I mean, why can’t people support cops and still admit that they fucked up when they killed Amadou Diallo? Why can’t people support cops and still admit that they fucked up when they killed Tamir Rice? Why can’t people support cops and still admit that they fucked up when they killed Botham Jean? Why can’t people support cops and still admit that they fucked up when they killed Philando Castile? Hell, the police KNOW that they fucked up with Breonna Taylor because they got rid of the no-knock warrant AND paid her family $12 million. Still, the Blue Lives Matter crowd won’t acknowledge ANY wrongdoing. It’s fucking baffling, son.

In the end, the division is this country is beyond toxic, man. Ultimately, we can’t agree on ANYTHING. By and by, we can’t even agree that unjustly killing people is wrong. At the end of the day, I’m reaching the point where I’m starting to believe that this nation is beyond saving. All in all, I’m just worried about making as much money as possible and contributing to Black generational wealth. Fuck all of this other shit, fam. That is all. LC out.

Kyle Rittenhouse Is A Monster That America Created

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I feel very scatterbrained today. Like, I have so many thoughts right now that I’m not exactly sure how to structure it all. The fact of the matter is, Kyle Rittenhouse is a vigilante, a terrorist and a monster that America created. I mean, just think about it, man: Rittenhouse shot three people who were protesting the fact that the police shot Jacob Blake. Essentially, two people died because they were upset that ANOTHER unarmed Black man got shot. *Sigh* I literally can’t make this shit up, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it, Kenosha, Wisconsin just became even more of a shit-show. Now, after the shooting of Jacob Blake, protestors have taken to the streets. As expected, folks are fucking outraged that yet another Black person has been victimized by law enforcement. However, instead of acknowledging the reason for people’s rage, detractors and media personalities just demonize the way that folks protest. And THIS is exactly the reason why murderers like Rittenhouse exist.

Look, it happens time and time again, bruh. Racists constantly spin the narrative to distract from what people are protesting about. Instead of recognizing the injustice, they talk about the manner in which people react. But, we all know that this has nothing to do with “riots,” son. Shit, all Colin Kaepernick did was kneel (at the behest of a veteran) and the nation lost its fucking mind. So, miss me with all of that, man. The problem is, painting protestors as “thugs” and “degenerates” is precisely why killers like Rittenhouse feel emboldened.

Hell, let’s be clear, fam. Rittenhouse came from Antioch, Illinois, a town 30 minutes away from Kenosha, to “protect” a car dealership that wasn’t his. In addition, despite the fact that Kenosha is an open carry state, Rittenhouse is too young to even qualify. On top of that, he was outside after curfew, just like all of the protestors that police chief Daniel Miskinis was criticizing. The fact of the matter is, Rittenhouse is a documented Blue Lives Matter zealot who took it upon himself to kill protestors.

The way I see it, Rittenhouse is a product of the narrative that’s permeated through right-wing America. For so long, they’ve denied the agency of Black people, criticized anyone who’s dared to speak out and blindly support our victimizers. All in all, this is the world that Rittenhouse subscribes to. So, it makes perfect sense that he would take this type of action. He’s just espousing the beliefs that he’s been subjected to. With all of that being said, the entire country is responsible for the deeds of that 17-year-old terrorist.

In the end, I’m beyond tired, bruh. Ultimately, I’ve said that before, but I legitimately shed a tear last night. By and by, it’s still painful to see that a large portion of the country doesn’t give a flying shit about us. At the end of the day, the idea that we’re desensitized is nonsense. The truth is, I still feel EVERYTHING, son. Everything. That is all. LC out.

P.S. From the depths of my soul, I want to say FUCK TUCKER CARLSON! Ok, yes, he’s always been a piece of shit, but last night was a new low, even for him. This clown-cake really suggested that Rittenhouse was dispensing justice because the police wouldn’t. Like, I don’t even know how to properly respond to that statement. Listen, I know the game that Fox News is playing, but this is too far, man. Honestly, they need to take some type of action against him ASAP. Fin.

Please Survive, Jacob Blake

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I did something that I said I’d never do again: I watched the shooting of another Black person by the police. *Sigh* What the fuck, son? Like, honestly, what the entire fuck, man?! I mean, this Jacob Blake situation is beyond belief, fam. All I know is, our rage means nothing if these cowards aren’t held accountable for their actions.

Ok, for those who are unaware, yet another Black person has suffered harm at the hands of law enforcement. Now, over in Kenosha, Wisconsin, witnesses say that Blake, a 29-year-old father of three, was trying to break up an argument between two women. However, instead of being thanked for his seeming attempt at being a peacemaker, Blake was instead rewarded with seven shots to his back. Even worse, he was violated with his three sons watching from his car. Real talk, I’m at an absolute loss for words, bruh.

Now, as of right now, Blake has thankfully managed to survived. According to reports, he’s in stable condition, despite the rumors that he may be paralyzed. *Sigh* If that’s the case, yeah it’s great that he’s alive, but what kind of standard of living is this, son? For God‘s sake, why do we always end up in the same fucking spot, man? People have been pissed ALL of 2020 and NOTHING has changed, fam. Why? Because these motherfuckers never get in trouble for anything!

Look, maybe I’m oversimplifying everything, but the answer is simple to me: murderers and attempted murderers need to go to fucking prison. Now, of course we can have substantive debates about updating our laws. All of that is factual, bruh. But, some of the laws we currently have work, son. Like, sending a motherfucker to prison if he/she wrongfully shoots someone. Shit, that law already exists, man. The fact of the matter is, police are NEVER held to the same standard of laws they’re SUPPOSED to uphold. All in all, it’s fucking disgusting, fam.

In the end, all prayers to Jacob Blake and his family. Ultimately, I really hope that he survives his ordeal. By and by, I also hope that justice is done for him. Then again, hope alone isn’t enough, brethren. So, we can all start by calling the Kenosha City Attorney at (262) 653-4170, the Kenosha Mayor at (262) 653-4000, the Kenosha Police Non-Emergency Line at (262) 656-1234 and the Wisconsin Department of Justice at (608) 266-1221. The way I see it, heads need to roll for this shit. Let’s get this done, folks. That is all. LC out.

Randi B. & LC: Herman Cain, Breonna Taylor, Defunding The Police & BLM

What’s good, brethren? On this episode, Randi B. and I were back on Facebook Live talking about Herman Cain, Breonna Taylor, defunding the police and infighting in the Black Lives Matter movement. It evolved into a conversation that included Donald Trump, the Coronavirus, Jeff Sessions, William Barr, Amadou Diallo and Verzuz. Check it out on YouTube below. Yessir!

New Music: LC ‘At What Age’

My new song, “At What Age,” can now be streamed on YouTube. Like I’ve said in a previous Instagram post, I saw the picture of that young protestor, thought of my own kids and it threw me for a loop. So, I’ve decided to express myself in a manner that’s most natural to me. In addition, although I’m actively contributing what I can to the families of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, along with several bail funds, I also want to donate any money garnered from the streams of this song to the cause. With all of that being said, click the link below and feel free to share the song. I love my people.

What The H*ll Happened To Ahmaud Arbery?

*Sigh* I won’t lie, man. On the real, I can’t even put my frustration into words, son. All I know is, Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man from Georgia, is dead and no one can really tell me why. The fact of the matter is, Gregory and Travis McMichael took it upon themselves to “police” the neighborhood without a shred of probable cause. When it’s all said and done, all they saw was a Black man jogging down the street.

Ok, for those who are unaware, back on February 23rd, Arbery was murdered by the McMichael’s. Now, according to their story, the two men “believed” that Arbery was a burglar who broke into several houses in the area. In any case, despite not having an ounce of evidence to support this theory, the McMichael’s decided to confront Arbery. So, they loaded up a shotgun and some handguns, got in their pickup truck and chased after Arbery. From there, they claim that Arbery violently attacked them and they had to kill him in self-defense. The problem is, someone actually filmed the incident, fam.

Now, based on new footage, the official police report doesn’t seem to match up with recorded events. First, let’s talk about the 9-1-1 tape. Look, when these douchebags were asked to explain what was going on, all they had was “a Black man was running down our street.” Next, they said that Arbery “violently attacked” them. Well, based on the video, the McMichael’s blocked Arbery’s passage in the street and he tried to run around the truck. From there, yes, Arbery got into an altercation with Travis McMichael. The way I see it, what the fuck else is he supposed to do when two unidentified men rolled up on him with guns? Ahmaud Arbery had every fucking right to defend himself, bruh.

To make matters worse, as is the case in A LOT of these incidents, Arbery was unarmed. So, let’s run this story from the beginning, son. Gregory and Travis McMichael automatically assumed that Arbery was a criminal, chased after him with weapons and then killed him during a confrontation that they initiated. In addition, it took the video coming out for the authorities to suggest bringing this case to a grand jury. The truth is, Gregory McMichael is a former investigator for the District Attorney‘s office. Because of this, a bunch of the prosecutors had to recuse themselves. All in all, none of that bodes well for justice, son.

In the end, AHHHHHHHHH! Ultimately, I have nothing else to say, man. Frankly, I’ve made this argument countless times and I’m fucking tired. By and by, unchecked bias is a VICIOUS killer of our people. At the end of the day, nothing will ever change if these perpetrators aren’t punished. That is all. LC out.

P.S. I want everyone to pay attention to the fact that this story is barely being reported on the news. Shit, unless it’s about Trump or the coronavirus, nothing else gets any airtime, fam. So, fuck the media, bruh. Good day.

The Honey Pot: Why Do Some White People Hate When Black People Are Proud?

So, I’m going to (try to) keep this post short today, son. On the real, some of these hating ass White folks need to knock it off, man. Side note, in situations like this, I have to highlight the “some” because people get offended. Like, of COURSE I’m not talking about every single White person, fam. But, some of their brethren need to cut out the bullshit, bruh. In any case, this The Honey Pot situation is fucking ridiculous. Listen, there ain’t nothing wrong with a Black woman being proud of her success, people.

Ok, before I continue, let me be frank, son. Real talk, when I first saw the Target commercial that Bea Dixon did for The Honey Pot, I didn’t think that it would cause a firestorm, man. I mean, I literally saw a Black woman express gratitude for a company of Target’s stature to feature her products, fam. In addition, she stated that her success could open opportunities for other Black women to shine. No harm, no foul, right? Well, apparently, some White people are upset that a Black woman is wishing good things for other Black people.

Look, ever since that commercial aired, The Honey Pot has been getting negative reviews from (mostly) White women who don’t feel included in Dixon’s message. Somehow, seeing a Black woman hope that other Black women are given similar chances is offensive to them. For some reason, anytime we big ourselves up, some idiots take it as a slight against them. No, dumb motherfuckers, we’re just happy to be given a chance to shine on a major platform.

Bruh, do I really have to explain how difficult it is to be a Black business owner (or a Black person, in general) in America? For God‘s sake, Dixon started her own line of feminine hygiene products and was able to secure backing from Target. That’s a huge fucking accomplishment, son. That’s not something that happens for a good majority of our community, man. So, pardon her for being fucking excited for her achievements. Pardon her for wanting the same level of stardom for other people who look like her. Seriously, when will White people learn that success for Black people doesn’t come as a detriment to them? That’s the same sentiment we’ve been preaching in the Black Lives Matter movement. Yes, White lives matter. We’re just saying that we fucking matter too, simpleton ass muhfuckas.

In the end, it’s clear that I’m mad, fam. Ultimately, the backlash to The Honey Pot has really grinded my gears, bruh. By and by, I’m tired of some White people trying to undercut our wins. At the end of the day, it’s very simple, son. If folks fuck with the products, then use them. If not, then use something else. Black people are not out here trying to exclude anyone, man. Historically, that came from White people’s playbook, fam. Maybe that’s why it’s their automatic assumption. That is all. LC out.

A Podcast That I Did With Randi B.

So, I’m going to try and keep this post short today, son. Now, I know that I say that a lot, but I mean it, man. Well, I guess. In any case, I just want to let everybody in on that new new, fam. With that being said, my brethren Randi B. has started a new podcast. In addition, she was gracious enough to let me get in on the first episode, bruh. All in all, what else do folks need to know?

Ok, as a quick background, Randi’s podcast, Conversations with Randi B., is available on Anchor and Spotify. Now, on this first episode, Randi and I recapped the 2010s. We talked about everything from Barack Obama/Donald Trump to social media to #MeToo to Black Lives Matter to Prince/Michael Jackson/Whitney Houston. Needless to say, we covered a lot of ground in 30 minutes, son.

In the end, there’s nothing else to say, man. Ultimately, I want everyone to go out there and support the movement, fam. By and by, folks can find links to the podcast below. Give it a listen, give us some feedback and let’s get the proceedings proceeding, brethren. That is all. LC out.

George Zimmerman Is One Of The Worst People In Human History

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’m having a hard time controlling my anger right now. Like, the sheer audacity of some people is fucking unnerving, man. All I can say is, I have NO idea how George Zimmerman is still safely walking the streets of America. In addition, his new lawsuit is one of the most unconscionable things I’ve ever seen in my entire life, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it, Zimmerman, the demon who shot and killed Trayvon Martin, just filed a $100 million lawsuit against Martin’s parents (Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin), their lawyer (Benjamin Crump), Rachel Jeantel (the teenager who Trayvon was on the phone with before the murder), Brittany Diamond Eugene (another teenager who Zimmerman’s lawyer claims was being impersonated by Jeantel), HarperCollins (a publisher that released a book by Crump about violence towards Black people), and all types of prosecutors/law enforcement officers in Florida. All in all, I’m truly baffled beyond words, bruh.

Real talk, I honestly can’t articulate how disgusted I am right now. Shit, as a quick refresher, let’s go through what this monster did in 2012. First, Zimmerman profiled an innocent Black kid in his father’s neighborhood. Then, against the advice of 911, he followed Martin and initiated a confrontation. From there, after Martin justifiably tried to defend himself from a stranger, Zimmerman pulled out a gun and ended the teen’s life. Finally, thanks to the stupid ass Stand-Your-Ground law, Zimmerman was unfairly acquitted of cold-blooded murder.

To make matters worse, Zimmerman has run afoul of the law MULTIPLE times after killing Martin. Hell, he assaulted more than one girlfriend (with guns present), and stalked a private investigator. The fact is, he’s a cotdamn danger to society who’s NEVER had to answer for any of his fuckery, son. So, with all of that being said, this fucking animal has the GALL to file a fucking lawsuit?! Fam, I’m absolutely flabbergasted right now. Keeping it a buck, Larry Klayman, Zimmerman’s lawyer, should be fucking ashamed of himself. How on Earth can he justify representing such a piece of pure gutter trash, bruh? *Sigh*

In the end, I might riot if this case doesn’t get thrown out, son. Ultimately, I pray and pray that a judge sees right through this bullshit, man. By and by, I don’t generally wish ill on people, fam. But, I really want bad things to happen to that guy, bruh. Frankly, people like Zimmerman provide a counterargument to karma, brethren. Listen, if karma was real, this clown-cake would’ve been taken care of a long time ago, people. Then again, maybe we still have time. Sorry not sorry. I said what I said. LC out.

I Don’t Know What To Make Of Shaun King

So, let me be honest, son. On the real, I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I’m a Shaun King expert. All I know is, I’ve heard many of the arguments for and against him. With that being said, DeRay Mckesson‘s exposé on him was fucking brutal, man. All in all, if Mckesson’s reporting is accurate, then King might be the fraudist of the frauds, fam. Side bar, I know that “fraudist” isn’t a word, but it felt right, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, Mckesson hit King with all of the bullets and Tomahawk missiles in his post on Medium. Now, the purpose of this piece was to bring light to King’s allegedly nefarious acts when it comes to fundraising. Shit, about a week ago, in an attempt to be transparent, King released a report outlining the $34 million he apparently raised since the beginning of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Needless to say, Mckesson wasn’t with the shits and picked apart King’s entire history. Apparently, King has been up to a wide-range of fuckery, son. Now, according to Mckesson, King has fired people who disagree with him, misappropriated large amounts of funds and taken credit for other people’s work. Hell, if I’m reading this article right, $20 million of the $34 million that King is claiming came from the Facebook fundraiser to reunite immigrant kids with their parents. All I can say is, ALL of this shit looks terrible for King, man.

Now, to shoot him some bail, I do believe that he’s used his platform to bring attention to pertinent subjects. However, I was also aware of shit like that Sherita Dixon-Cole situation, where she lied about being raped by a cop. The truth is, King has to take responsibility for any shitty reporting, fam. In any case, if these allegations are true, then King has no excuse for himself, bruh. Frankly, bringing attention to certain subjects doesn’t absolve him from any potential wrongdoing, son. Keeping it a buck, if he’s hiding money, threatening fellow activists or commandeering other people’s work, then a reckoning is certainly needed, man. The way I see it, an exhaustive report from friends and a co-sign from Michael Eric Dyson isn’t enough to alleviate people’s concerns, brethren.

In the end, I’m probably not doing this story justice, son. Ultimately, folks can read Mckesson’s article for themselves, man. By and by, there’s a ton of information to wrap our heads around, fam. At the end of the day, it’s great that the families of Nia WilsonPhilando CastileTerence Crutcher and Botham Jean feel supported by King. Honestly, all families of injustice deserve recognition, bruh. But, if King is also out here scamming muhfuckas, then he needs to be called out on the bullshit, people. That is all. LC out.

P.S. I’m actually sad that I had to write this article, son. Like, this is not the type of attention that BLM needs, man. The fact is, it’s a lot harder to destabilize a problematic system when we’re fighting amongst ourselves, fam. So, how about we all knock off the tomfoolery, bruh. Good day.
