Damn, Darkness: RIP Charlie Murphy

Damn, son. *Sigh* All I can do is shake my head, man. On the real, Rest In Peace to Charlie Murphy. Cancer has taken yet another victim, bruh. Now, contrary to what some news outlets might say, Charlie was way more than Eddie Murphy‘s older brother. In fact, he was a master storyteller, a quick-witted verbal flame thrower and a dude who was hilariously menacing. All in all, we lost a great talent and his legacy should be celebrated.

Now, maybe I’m dating myself, but my first real memory of Murphy was in the movie CB4. Yeah, I know he was in a few films before that, including a couple of Spike Lee joints, but I vividly remember him as Gusto. Look, I got endless joy out of watching him terrorize Albert (Chris Rock). His aggression was always funny and it made every scene entertaining to watch.

Moving on, as time progressed, he found himself on every visual medium imaginable. However; no one will ever forget his role on Chappelle’s Show. Listen, everything he did with Dave Chappelle on that show was gold, son. EVERYTHING, man! Whether we’re talking about “Charlie Murphy’s True Hollywood Stories” or “The Mad Real World” or the “Player Hater’s Ball,” Murphy created nothing but classic material, fam.

Ok, keeping it a buck, Chappelle may be the greatest comedian of all time. With that being said, the most memorable material from his show might actually be Murphy’s stories about Rick James and Prince. Think about that for a second, man. That’s how great Murphy was. Even legends like Chappelle and his brother Eddie knew how phenomenal Charlie was. As Eddie always said, Charlie was “his best impression.”

In the end, Murphy deserves his respect. He put in the time and the effort to be considered an icon. Now, let’s celebrate his memory by slapping a “habitual line-stepper” and then eating a plate of pancakes. RIP Charlie Murphy!

P.S. Prayers up to Murphy’s children. Due to his untimely demise from leukemia, his kids are now technically orphans. Unfortunately, Murphy’s wife, Tisha Taylor, died from cervical cancer in 2009. I swear, cancer might be the worst thing to ever plague humanity, man. That is all.

This Is Why Donald Trump Supporters Are Stupid

To begin, no, I don’t feel sorry for calling an entire group of people stupid. Since I’m not Hillary Clinton, I don’t have to apologize for calling folks a “basket of deplorables.” Look, maybe if I say it this plainly, Donald Trump supporters would understand how bad they got conned. Now, while I believe a good number of politicians lie with their campaign promises, most of them at least have the wherewithal to keep the front going. Our President-elect is literally having a “Thank You” victory tour and flatly telling his supporters he was bullshitting about a lot of his rhetoric. In all honesty, if I wasn’t so frightened by a Trump administration, I’d be laughing my ass off right now.

Now, during the Pennsylvania stop of this stupid ass tour, Trump basically let the cat out of the bag in regards to his campaign platform. If we go back to the presidential race, besides his non-specific “Make America Great Again” slogan, Trump continuously talked about “draining the swamp.” Throughout the course of the campaign, he promised his supporters he would rid Washington, D.C. of corruption and remove the influence of Wall Street and other lobbyists from government. Fast forward to today, if anyone with a brain took one look at his cabinet, they’d know he already duped his followers. So far, he’s stocked his team with nothing but bankers, oil men and Nazi, excuse me, alt-right enthusiasts. These moves alone should be enough to show his true intentions, but at his latest rally on Thursday, he took it a step further.

So, during his speech, when Trump brought up his infamous “drain the swamp” slogan, he freely admitted he thought it was corny. In reality, he only kept saying it because he kept getting applause from the crowds. Moving on, Trump literally said the words “I said it like I meant it.” Good fucking Lord, man! He’s literally in a room full of people who voted for him and told them he didn’t mean one of the central themes of his campaign. The only thing crazier than that is the fact people in the audience kept cheering and clapping. Are people that damn dumb, son? Seriously, are Trump supporters that idiotic?! He even said he used to claim the system was rigged, but stopped because he won and doesn’t care anymore. Wow! Fucking wow, man! Like, I couldn’t make this shit up, son! He OPENLY admitted to being a liar and these fools keep clapping for him. It’s fucking mind-boggling!

In the end, I’m a very firm believer in what I said, man. Anyone who voted for Donald Trump is a dumbass. At this point, the man is directly telling people he lied to them and they still won’t turn away from him. Like Silky Johnson said, “I hope all the bad things in life happen to you and nobody else but you.” I’m out.

P.S. I didn’t even touch on the fact that Trump keeps “thanking” African-Americans for supporting him by not voting. In his warped mind, he truly believes that since a few people weren’t sold on Clinton, that automatically meant they were in his corner. I wonder if Kanye West, Jim Brown and Ray Lewis are listening to this bullshit. This is what he really thinks about the Black community, son. Thanks for being pawns in his little game, sellouts. One.
