R. Kelly Is Looking At Fed Time

So, let’s just skip the formalities, son. Frankly, R. Kelly is in a world of shit, man. I mean, when the Feds get involved with an investigation, it’s most likely the end of the road for whoever, fam. With that being said, I’m super interested to see how this situation is going to play out, bruh. All in all, if dude is convicted of these crimes, he’s probably going away for a looooong time.

Ok, for those who missed it, Kelly was arrested (again) in Chicago on Thursday night. Now, if we’re being real, he’s no stranger to the authorities, son. However, this scenario is notable because of who picked him up, man. Essentially, Homeland Security and the NYPD teamed up to apprehend Kelly. In any case, once arrested, he was indicted on 13 counts of child pornography, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice. Basically, he got hemmed up for the shit we knew he was doing for decades, fam.

Now, I won’t lie, bruh. Shit, my opinion about Kelly is no secret, son. Hell, I’ve lost count of how many articles I’ve written just shitting on that dude, man. Anyway, I do wonder how this case will be different, fam. Like, Chicago police have tried to take this dude down before, folks. All I know is, if Sparkle‘s niece’s family didn’t make a deal with the Devil, Kelly would’ve been stopped years ago. Moving on, I’d really like to know what evidence the authorities have this time. The way I see it, with the Feds jumping in, they must feel like they can wrap this dude the fuck up, brethren. In my eyes, it’s long overdue, people.

In the end, good luck to R. Kelly, son. Siiiiiiike, I hope they throw that bum under all of the jails, man. Ultimately, his day of reckoning HAS to come, fam. By and by, he’s abused WAY too many girls to keep on skating, bruh. At the end of the day, a (hilarious) convo with Gayle King couldn’t save him, brethren. All I can say is, he better start preparing for those prison talent shows, folks. That is all. LC out.

You Too, Charlie Rose?!

So, the sexual abuse train just keeps on running, huh? I mean, it’s truly difficult for my mind to grasp how prevalent this type of behavior is, son. Like, is there any woman out there who hasn’t been harassed in some shape, form or fashion? Is there any dude out there who hasn’t inappropriately fondled someone or done something way worse? Shit, the fuckery has gotten to the point that I can’t keep up with all of the allegations, man. With that being said, it pains me to have to drag Charlie Rose through the mud, fam. However; NO ONE is safe from being justly rebuked, bruh!

Look, just a couple of weeks ago, in my “opioid crisis” post, I mentioned that my wife and I routinely watch CBS This Morning. Frankly, I’ve been a fan of Charlie Rose for years upon years, son. Listen, his self-titled interview show has provided countless classic moments from his conversations with celebrities and intellectuals. For me, he’s one of the few journalists who simply gives me the news without saturating it with bipartisanship. In any case, as of today, his character has been called into question. Based on a report in The Washington Post, Rose is now excused of harassing at least eight women. *Sigh* The fuckery never stops, man.

Now, according to the story, Rose has allegedly done a myriad of things, including walking naked in front of employees and groping any body part he chooses. Apparently, these stories go back to the 1990s and have continued well into the 2010s. To make matters worse, his self-titled show didn’t have a Human Resources department, so there was no one these women could turn to, fam. Bruh, I can’t even think of a more egregious abuse of power. Look, there was absolutely no one there to check him. He could literally do whatever he wanted to whoever he wanted. Real talk, the lack of accountability is staggering, folks.

In the end, I’m wholeheartedly beginning to lose faith in people, son. Now, I know that I don’t know any of these folks personally, but it’s hard not to hope that there are good people out there. However; as more stories start to emerge, I now realize that damn near everyone is trash, man. *Sigh* I might as well go sit in a silent room, fam. That’s the only way to keep away from everybody’s tomfoolery. LC out.

P.S. Shout-out to the women for finally coming forward and shout-out to Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell for keeping it a buck on-air. Ultimately, I know that’s their colleague, but they didn’t let him escape without being criticized. That is all.

Drugs Are Only Illegal For Minorities

So, I was watching CBS This Morning today, which is part of a daily ritual for my wife and I. On this morning’s show, Gayle King, Charlie Rose and Norah O’Donnell were speaking about the “opioid epidemic.” Apparently, Donald Trump is prepared to call the issue a “public health emergency.” Now, I’ve been hearing about this “crisis” for a while and I get angrier every time it’s discussed. Not because drugs aren’t a problem, but because of the racial implications of this situation. In layman’s terms, it’s a crisis now that it’s affecting White people, but it was a crime when it was affecting Black people.

Now, before I continue, let me get into some specifics. Statistically speaking, White people are two-times more likely to use illicit substances than Black people. With that being said, Black people somehow represent almost half of the drug convictions in this country. During the 1960s and 1970s, heroin did massive damage to inner cities all over America. In addiction, crack cocaine took the despair to another level in the 1980s and early 1990s. However; Black addicts were never given any help, son. Instead, they were given lengthy prison sentences, man.

Look, I don’t want people to misinterpret what I’m saying here. On the real, I don’t want anyone to suffer from drug addiction, fam. But if we’re keeping it a buck, the racial double standard has ravaged families all over this nation. Honestly, it’s hard for me to empathize with a White addict from a rural area when I know a Black addict would just get jail time. Hell, even look at the new marijuana laws, bruh. Tons of minorities are still sitting in jail for weed offenses while dispensaries can collectively make billions. Why? Because the new weed laws aren’t always retroactively applied, son.

In the end, my point is simple, man. Drug addiction was treated as a crime when it affected Blacks and other minorities. Now, it’s being treated like a crisis because it’s affecting White families. Listen, as a Black man who’s personally seen households affected by drugs, how am I supposed to feel about that? How am I supposed to feel about the fact that we get treated like criminals instead of victims? *Sigh* I swear, people of color just keep singing the same song, fam. We just want to be treated as equals, bruh. Ultimately, if drug addiction is really an epidemic, then it should be treated as such for everyone. Everyone, folks. That is all. LC out.
