Slavery, As Told By Bill O’Reilly


Seriously, Bill O’Reilly? No, seriously, Bill?! Is this guy actually for real with the diarrhea coming out of his God-forsaken mouth? Right when I thought I’ve heard just about every racist statement that could possibly be made, a fool like Bill jumps out of the window and reveals the depths of prejudice I didn’t even think were still possible. With that being said, thank you, Bill O’Reilly, for providing one of the most racist examples of revisionist history I’ve ever heard in my natural life.

Now, for those who missed it, on night one of the Democratic National Convention, Michelle Obama gave a very poignant speech about her view of America, while relating various anecdotes about her family life. In one particular passage, she brought up the fact that her, her husband and their daughters are living in a house that was built by slaves. The juxtaposition of a Black man holding the highest office in this country, when our ancestors were deprived of basic human rights, is nothing short of remarkable.

Not to be left out of this conversation, good ol’ Bill decided to jump into the fray and give Mrs. Obama a different “perspective” on these slaves who helped build the White House. While acknowledging the fact slave labor was indeed used to construct the presidential building, the Fox News “pundit” also noted that the slaves were “well-fed and had decent lodging.” Well, shit, why didn’t someone say this earlier? Being denied your freedom and having your wages given to your slave owners can’t possibly be that bad if the bosses give you a roof over your head. Besides, if these slaves worked besides free Blacks, Whites and other immigrants, who cares if their work was being exploited for the benefit of the very establishment who made it legal to profit off of their pain?

To everyone out there who is reading this blog right now, that statement actually came out of the mouth of someone with a national television show. He literally downplayed slave labor because they had clothing and housing. He even tried adding the footnote that the federal government stopped using slave labor in 1802, which is completely irrelevant because the White House was already finished by then. I’m fucking bewildered, man. It’s beyond disgusting how evil-hearted individuals are actively trying to rewrite the plight of my people. This is just as bad as those baffoons in Texas who tried to label slaves “immigrant workers” in their school textbooks. It’s bad enough we were forcibly removed from Africa and brought to this side of the world to suffer, but now our post-Diaspora ordeal is being reshapen. Let me make this clear to everyone out there: SLAVERY CAN NEVER BE JUSTIFIED!

In the end, I’m not going to sugarcoat this shit at all. Fuck you, Bill O’Reilly. Fuck you, Fox News. Fuck you to everyone who endorses anything this sexual harasser and domestic abuse enthusiast says. I’m already over this entire damn day, son. Goodbye.

Feel The Bern… Of The DNC’s Emails


Well, well, well! What do we have here? Good ol’ politicians up to their normal brand of tomfoolery, son. I guess one day is all I get in regards to not talking about some shenanigans going on in the world. But alas, here I am, ready to tackle the nonsense that is Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and the Democratic National Committee.

Now, for those who missed it, Wasserman Schultz has decided to step down from her post as the Chairperson of the DNC. This move comes after WikiLeaks ruined everyone’s weekend and leaked email exchanges between Wasserman Schultz and other members of the DNC. In these conversations, a variety of nefarious characters attempted to conceive of ways to derail Bernie Sanders’ bid for President. This was done, of course, to benefit their preferred pick, Mrs. Clinton. So, you mean to tell me, Bernie’s “crazy” ramblings about the system being rigged against him weren’t so preposterous after all? Ok, look, I’m no fool, son. I’m not naive to the idea of inner political machines cranking, unbeknownst to the general public. Conspiracy theories aren’t new to the political landscape, but c’mon son, this is waaaaaay too blatant, man. Why on Earth would these fools talk so openly about messing with the “democratic” process? Oh, so apparently, questioning Sanders’ Jewish heritage and threatening to “expose” him as an atheist is a premier example of the “fair” and “just” campaign system. All to impress some Southern Christians? Get the flying fuck out of here, bruh.

Listen, here’s my thing about this entire ordeal. It doesn’t really matter whether or not Bernie had a legitimate chance of winning the nomination. When American citizens go out and vote in all of these elections, we’d like to believe we’re contributing to a system that is being somewhat upfront with us. To inadvertently discover the “powers that be” are so willfully trying to circumvent the choice of the people is disheartening. To be real, though, I’m not even sure why I’m acting like I’m surprised by all of this. But damn man, no one really wants to believe the views of the people are useless. With that being said, it should come as no surprise that Bernie supporters aren’t with the shits at the Convention right now. How can anyone reasonably ask people to be onboard with the Democratic platform when we caught prominent members of the party with their hands in the cookie jar? The DNC can blame Russia all they want to for possibly leaking the emails, but maybe they should focus on the fact the emails were sent in the first place. Side bar, to be fair, Russia potentially meddling in our shit is a big problem, man. Someone tell Vladimir Putin to keep his ass on the sidelines, son. We don’t care if him and Donald Trump ride tandem bikes together.

In the end, I honestly don’t know what to say, man. Democracy is on some bullshit right now. I mean, I’m pretty sure it was always on some bullshit, but at least more seasoned politicians had the wherewithal to not have their foolishness so overtly out in the open. At this point, I’m not sure how anyone can feel justifiably okay with any of these Presidential candidates. I might as well just pack my family up and move to Barbados. Prime Ministers are looking a lot better than Presidents these days. Well, except for the folks running things over in England. That’s all I’ve got for today, good people. Adios.
