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.

Ted Koppel Is A G… Ask Sean Hannity

Man, I rock with Ted Koppel. Nah, for real, for real, I rock with Ted Koppel, son. After watching his interview with Sean Hannity on CBS Sunday Morning, I was excited to see an actual journalist deconstruct today’s media. As it currently stands, opinions have replaced facts in our news and it’s exceedingly dangerous, man. With that being said, I applaud Koppel for calling out Hannity to his face. However; Hannity and Fox News aren’t the only ones to criticize. In my eyes, MSNBCCNN and countless other “news” networks all share some of the blame. Ultimately, all opinion shows disguised as news are bad for America.

Now, I won’t lie, son, when it comes to this subject, I argue a lot with my wife and my mother. To me, I see no difference between Fox News and MSNBC. Yes, the ideology is drastically different between the two channels, but they both engage in the same brand of propaganda. All jokes aside, Bill O’Reilly and Chris Matthews are the same person, man. They both have definitive beliefs and they both refuse to listen to any guest with a conflicting point of view. Instead of acknowledging someone else’s sentiment, they’d rather just cut them off or speak over them. On the real, I challenge anyone to watch both of their shows back-to-back. Once their respective dogma is removed, it becomes apparent that their approach to “news” is strikingly similar.

Look, didn’t I just scold Rachel Maddow on this very site for engaging in the tomfoolery? I mean, she took two pages of Donald Trump‘s 2005 tax return and spun an entire story out of nothing. Outside of quoting how much money he made and how much he paid in taxes, Maddow had no other spec of news to report. She just launched a series of hypotheticals that were designed to create an unproven narrative in the audience’s mind. *Sigh* I just want the damn news, son! Can I get that without someone trying to shape how I’m supposed to interpret it?

Moving on, I just want to make one thing clear. Is my blog based on my own personal point of view? Absolutely. With that being said, I’m not a journalist, man. I’m just a dude with an opinion and immaculate WiFi, son. I’m simply out here reacting to the world as it happens. We, the people, need the media to tell us the unbiased truth. That’s the only way we can truly make sense of everything. All I know is, I’m a firm believer that opinion-based media is largely responsible for the division in our country. The public can’t come together when information is always being spun and misrepresented.

In the end, Ted Koppel is a G, man. He’s one of the few who’s able to call a spade a spade. Now, if more journalists took this stance on the news, then maybe we’d actually have a shot of figuring out what’s really going on out here. But, then again, in the words of Desus Nice, by Bronx bredren, facts don’t matter. LC out.

P.S. This is very random, but shout-out to Ghostface Killah, son. Look, the entire time I was writing this post, I kept hearing the line “hit mics like Ted Koppel” in my head. With that being said, everyone should go listen to “Mighty Healthy” after reading this. That is all.

LC’s Review Of Last Night’s Debate F*ckery

Man, my head hurts, bro. Like, I’m fairly positive my brain cells are on fire right now. What the hell did I watch last night, son? Did a presidential debate actually occur or did we all watch the premiere of a new VH1 reality show? All I know is, during the course of last night’s shenanigans between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, I hugged my sons because this truly might be the end of days. With that being said, I’ve decided to reluctantly give everyone my review of last night’s debate, bullet point style.

1. Lester Holt Got Treated Like A Punk Bitch: Bruh, how bad of a moderator was Lester Holt? Look, I’ll always support the Black man when it comes to Dateline or the Nightly News. However; he needs to never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever moderate another debate. He never had control of the situation, son. Both candidates, ESPECIALLY Trump, frequently went over time, Holt never stopped Trump during the copious amount of times he interrupted Clinton AND Trump even interrupted him. At one point, Trump literally told Holt to wait while he rebutted a comment Clinton made. All I can say is, Holt definitely came out of this with his lip busted and reputation mangled.

2. Trump Would’ve Interrupted God Himself: Look, this dude Donald Trump has no couth whatsoever. While I’ve already mentioned the number of times he interrupted Holt, the real victim here was Clinton. During the first 26 minutes of the debate alone, Trump interrupted Clinton 25 times. 25 fucking times, man! Now, I’m no brain surgeon, but I’m pretty sure that’s not how a debate works. What the hell is the point of time limits if Trump is just going to talk whenever he feels like it? By the way, I hope Trump understands, simply blurting out words like “lies” doesn’t actually disprove any of the points Clinton made. For example, he claimed she lied about him saying global warming was an invention of the Chinese, but lo and behold, the internet found his tweet from 2012 saying exactly that. Foolishness, I say.

3. Trump’s Views On Race Relations Are Frightening: In regards to this bullet point, all I have to say is Stop and Frisk. When asked about how he would improve race relations in this country, Trump mentioned the need for more “law and order” in minority communities. Taking it a step further, he then suggested instating Stop and Frisk across the nation. Here’s the problem, though: A DISTRICT COURT JUDGE DEEMED THE PRACTICE UNCONSTITUTIONAL! A number of studies showed the method was racially biased toward stopping Black and Hispanic people. Speaking as someone who’s been stopped more than once due to this bullshit tactic, I can attest to the fact it’s highly prejudicial to minorities. Someone, please get this man the fuck out of here.

4. Trump Admitted Some Terrible Things About Himself: Now, for just one moment, let’s talk about taxes and the housing market. First, Clinton brought up the fact Trump hadn’t paid federal taxes during certain periods of time. Instead of denying it, he said it’s because he was “smart.” Next, Clinton stated that Trump was in favor of the 2008 housing market crash since it gave him the opportunity to buy more property. In response to that, Trump called it “good business.” So, let me get this straight, son. The man running for president doesn’t pay the IRS AND was in favor of the crash that contributed to the worst depression since the 1930s? IS ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE PAYING ATTENTION TO THIS SHIT?! I didn’t even mention the fact he basically admitted he doesn’t properly pay his own employees. Son, seriously, what the fuck is going on around here? How is Donald fucking Trump the Republican nominee for president? What the hell is wrong with the GOP?!

5. Trump Is Absolutely Allergic To Facts: In regards to the “birther movement” he spearheaded, Trump said he let the issue go when President Obama released his birth certificate in 2011. However; he was STILL talking about whether or not Obama was born in this country as of THIS YEAR! When Holt brought this fact up, Trump flat out refused to answer the question. Instead, he claimed credit for making Obama prove he was an American. Next, he blamed Obama and Clinton for the “power vacuum” that created ISIS, ignoring the fact that the agreement that removed the troops from Iraq was signed by George W. Bush. Hell, I already wrote about this in a previous post. Lastly, I literally heard this dude say he’s never “given much thought” to NATO. How in God’s name can Trump run this country when he’s not even familiar with our allies, man? His campaign is mind-bogglingly stupid and I have a really heard time figuring out how we got here as a nation.

Ok, I think that about does it for me today. Look, I’m still no huge fan of Clinton, but good Lord, Donald Trump is a maniac, son. For the life of me, I CANNOT understand how the polls are so close. If anyone needs proof the general public is idiotic, just examine the people who support this man. The sad part is, regardless of what happened last night, Trump’s base will probably never leave him. With that being said, I can’t stress enough how important it is to vote. Otherwise, everyone needs to start preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse. Armageddon is about to reach America really soon, son. Good day, I think.
