When Will We Call A Hate Crime A Hate Crime?

Man, stories like this make me fucking furious, bruh! Like, we live in a time where we can’t just call shit what it is. Look, instead of attacking situations head on, people would much rather beat around the bush. All I know is, I’m not one of those people, man. The way I see it, the murder of Richard Collins III was a hate crime, fam. All in all, just one look at Sean Urbanski‘s life can tell us all we need to know about that coward. With that being said, the police and the FBI NEED to do the right thing!

Now, for those who are unaware, let me give a brief synopsis of this story. To begin, Collins was a US Army Second Lieutenant who was about to graduate from Bowie State University. In any case, while visiting some friends at the University of Maryland, Collins and company were approached by Urbanski. So, after making threatening comments to Collins and his crew, Urbanski pulled out a knife and stabbed Collins in the chest. Ultimately, Collins was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Moving on, upon further inspection of Urbanski’s daily life, we learn that he belongs to an “Alt-Reich Nation” group on Facebook. Apparently, this particular group specializes in hating on women, Hispanics, Jews and Black people. Now, with all of that being said, why are we confused about whether or not this murder was a hate crime? I mean, a clown who openly embraces racist rhetoric randomly killed an unsuspecting Black man. Listen, am I really supposed to believe this wasn’t racially motivated? Man, get the fuck outta here, son!

In the end, nothing else needs to be said here. Richard Collins III deserves supreme justice. His promising life was cut short because bigots are becoming more emboldened by the day. By and by, if the authorities want us to believe that they actually stand for something, then Urbanski needs to be thrown under the jail. Anything less than a hate crime charge will not suffice, son. *Sigh* I’m fucking tired of this shit, man. LC out.

No Justice For Terence Crutcher

*Sigh* I’m devastated right now, man. Like, I’m having a hard time even putting my thoughts into words, fam. I mean, I don’t know what’s worse; the fact that Betty Shelby got away with murdering Terence Crutcher or the fact that I’m not even shocked by the verdict. Bruh, the jury couldn’t even convict her of manslaughter? Manslaughter?! A man was shot after his car broke down and his killer couldn’t even get the minimum charge? Honestly, why would Black people EVER trust in the injustice system, son?

Now, I could write an entire dissertation here, but what’s the point, man? What’s the fucking point anymore? All I know is, the cycle never ends. My people die and America doesn’t give a shit. The worse part is, America doesn’t even pretend to give a shit either. Look, Shelby’s lawyer said she was “elated” that she got off. Shit, this woman took a human being’s life and she couldn’t give a single fuck, bruh. At this point, I’m freakishly calm because I don’t know how to properly channel my rage. All in all, I just want to say Rest In Peace to Terence Crutcher.

Ultimately, I have nothing else to say, man. Fuck this shit. LC out.

Good Riddance, Michael Slager!

Being real, I’m going to keep this post short today, man. Honestly, I don’t have much to say, son. I’m just happy that some level of justice has been achieved. Now, before I continue, I think it’s a damn shame that this Walter Scott/Michael Slager situation has come to this. I mean, Slager’s bitch ass should’ve been convicted during his trial. Listen, he shot an unarmed Black man while he was running away and planted a taser near his dead body. Look, man, it doesn’t get any worse than that, fam. With all of that being said, I will gladly accept Slager’s plea agreement. In any case, let’s just hope his sentencing is appropriate.

Now, for anyone who missed it, Slager, the officer who killed Walter Scott, took a plea deal in lieu of a new trial. Ultimately, he’s agreed to plead guilty to willfully using excessive force to deprive Scott of his civil rights. To put this into perspective, this charge carries the weight of a second-degree murder charge. So, Slager could end up with life in prison. Look, all I know is, that’s EXACTLY what he deserves, man. At this point, any type of lenient sentence would be a slap in the face of Scott’s memory and his family. All in all, Scott was murdered in cold blood and deserves to be avenged. Hopefully, this deal is a step in the right direction.

In the end, I’m still on the “fuck Michael Slager” bandwagon, son. If it wasn’t for his callous actions, Walter Scott would still be with his family. Listen, a traffic stop shouldn’t have ended with him losing his life. From this point forward, I just pray that Slager rots in the dirtiest depths of prison. LC out.

A Letter To Jordan Edwards

Dear Jordan Edwards,

*Sigh* It pains me to know that you’ll never get to live a full life. It pains me to know that you’ve become another victim of tyrannical policing. It pains me to know that your friends had to witness your demise. It pains me to know that another family has to mourn the loss of a loved one. At this point, I feel physically weak, man. I’m exhausted from watching innocent Black people lose their lives over nothing. I’m tired of our community being terrorized by a system that hates us. All I can say is, your life mattered, Jordan.

Listen, on the real, I can’t judge you for being a 15-year-old at a rowdy party. Hell, I had my first sip of alcohol during my sophomore of high school. Keep in mind, I was on a boarding school-funded trip to China when I got shit-faced on Georgi Vodka with some of my friends. With that being said, I could never criticize you for having a night out, man. Then again, when I read that you and your friends didn’t even drink at that party, I learned that you were even better than I was at your age.

All I know is, your story is yet another example of the horror that Black people constantly deal with. You left a party that was supposedly getting out of hand and you ended up dead. I mean, it’s fucking baffling, fam! Of COURSE, the police had to claim that you and your friends were driving in an “aggressive manner” to justify your death. As if any spin story could rationalize shooting an unarmed teenager in the head. Fuck, man, when is the bullshit going to stop?! My only hope is that you rest in peace while the cops collapse under the weight of their own lies.

In the end, I really don’t know what else to say, Jordan. Your death hurts. All of these deaths hurt. I… I’ve got nothing else, man. Just rest well, Jordan. Rest well.

Sincerely,

A man who’s running out of ways to honor victims like you

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!

Black People Shouldn’t Call The Police For Help

Look, I just want to cut to the chase here. At this point in time, Black people have no reason to trust the police. Time and time again, law enforcement has shown us they have absolutely no regard for our rights or our safety. Their disdain for us is so strong, that even when we call them for help, our lives are still in danger. Now, after watching the viral video of a White officer arresting three Black women in Fort Worth, Texas, I’m standing firm in my belief that Black people should never, ever, EVER call the police for anything.

So, let’s quickly review this situation. Jacqueline Craig called the cops because her White neighbor choked her 7-year-old son. The neighbor alleged that the boy littered on his property and refused to pick it up. Somehow, this grown ass man thought it was appropriate to assault a child over litter. Now, when the cop arrived on the scene, instead of arresting the man for harming a kid, he decided to flippantly tell Craig to teach her son not to litter. From there, Craig told the officer that on top of the fact the neighbor couldn’t prove her son littered, even if he did, that still didn’t give him the right to hurt the boy. In response to that sound logic, the officer asked “why not?” Wait, what? WHAT?!? This fucking turd in a uniform really thought it was alright for an adult to choke a child over some trash he may or may not have placed on his property?! I’m literally beside myself from the pure lack of respect, man. The plain disregard for our basic humanity is mind-boggling, son!

Moving on, Craig’s daughter, Brea Hymond, tried to get in the middle of a heated exchange between her mother and the officer. Somehow, this led to the cop pulling out a taser and wrestling both women to the ground. Good fucking Lord, man! How the hell did we get here? How the fuck does a woman call the police for help and end up getting both assaulted and arrested? Protect and serve? This cop decided to protect and serve the rights of a violent ass neighbor who put his hands on a child! THIS is why we say Black Lives Matter! Even when we need assistance, we’re treated like criminals! Even when we extend our hands, we end up with spit on our face! I can’t take this shit anymore, man! I really fucking can’t! Black people have no place, no rights and no dignity in this fucking country! We’re still treated like three-fifths of a person.

Ultimately, I’m getting to the point where I don’t believe racial equality is possible in America. When situations like this continue to happen, it’s hard to actually believe we’ll ever reach the progress we’re so desperately fighting for. We can’t even get our detractors to acknowledge our lives are in peril, let alone get them to strive for change. All in all, Black people shouldn’t trust the police and we shouldn’t trust anyone who says “we need to have a discussion.” Fuck a discussion, man! Stop hurting us! Stop killing us! Stop belittling our pain! If that isn’t on the agenda, then shut the fuck up and get out of the way! I’m out.
