Jamal Khashoggi’s Death Is Some Wild Sh*t

So, I’m going to keep it a buck, son. Look, I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I have all of the facts, man. Frankly, there’s a lot about Jamal Khashoggi‘s death that we still don’t know, fam. All I can say is, there seems to be a MASSIVE amount of funny business going on and nobody’s doing anything about it. In my eyes, someone needs to be held accountable for this and I’m pointing right to the regime in Saudi Arabia.

Ok, before I continue, let me kill one particular narrative, bruh. On the real, I’ve been seeing a number of people say that Khashoggi’s murder isn’t our business. Now, while America may not be directly involved in this situation, our influence is all over the place, son. For one, Khashoggi wasn’t only a Saudi citizen. He was also a U.S. resident who lived in Virginia and worked for The Washington Post. Side note, it’s not lost on me that Donald Trump hates WaPo and seems to be indifferent about the death of one of their writers.

In any case, Khashoggi’s killing was a direct assault on the press, man. I mean, he criticized King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed and was slain for it. Actually, he was butchered for it, man. For God‘s sake, Khashoggi died a terrible fucking death, fam. Shit, within minutes of arriving at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, he was dismembered and beheaded. On top of all of that, the Saudi government really expects us to believe that they had nothing to do with it. So, are we supposed to believe that rogue agents went into a cotdamn consulate, which is essentially Saudi land, and killed a citizen? A citizen known for slamming the King and the Crown Prince? Bruh, get the FUCK outta here, son! Real talk, no outside forces would DARE to be that brazen, folks.

To make matters worse, Trump is out here sucking up to yet another foreign dictator. Despite a myriad of clues that Saudi Arabia orchestrated Khashoggi’s death, he’d rather believe the denials of the King and the Crown Prince. In addition, he’s more concerned with securing an arms deal between our two nations than calling out blatant murderers, son. *Sigh* I don’t even know why I allow myself to be surprised anymore, man. Hell, this is EXACTLY what I should’ve expected from Trump, fam. This type of treachery is right up his alley, bruh.

In the end, this is a terrible situation, son. The worst part is, I doubt anybody will be brought to justice, man. Ultimately, times like this show me the benefit of being in America, fam. By and by, I know that our country is responsible for copious amounts of fuckity-fuck shit. However, at least we can say that journalists aren’t getting visibly massacred like this. At the end of the day, it’s a total mind-fuck realizing that free speech ain’t always free, bruh. That is all. LC out.

We Never Knew Kanye West

Look, let me keep it a buck, son. Everything we ever thought we knew about Kanye West was a lie, man. The image he portrayed on all of his early albums was a lie, fam. On the real, I honestly believe we’re seeing the real him right now. For me, it’s no coincidence that when he became wealthy he began rejecting everything he previously stood for. Shit, he might be the biggest example of who I was talking about in my “Money Can’t Buy ‘Woke’” post, bruh. All in all, his White House meeting with Donald Trump was one of the most damaging things I’ve ever seen, folks.

Now, like I’ve said before, my real beef with Kanye is his gross lack of knowledge. Like, he picks the most public places and displays an INCREDIBLE misunderstanding of the issues. Real talk, when it comes to all of the fuckery he said yesterday, I don’t even know where to begin, son. I mean, we could talk about his thoughts on North Korea. He gave Trump credit for “solving” Barack Obama‘s biggest problem, despite the fact that North Korea hasn’t actually given up ANY of their nukes yet. Hell, they don’t even have a timeline for shutting down their damn nuclear program yet, man!

Moving on, we could talk about Kanye’s misguided views of Black people on welfare. Shit, can someone please tell him that White women represent the largest number of welfare recipients? Like, these are facts, brethren. Next, we could talk about the fact that he likened his MAGA hat to a Superman cape. Even worse, he said he couldn’t get behind Hillary Clinton‘s “I’m With Her” slogan because he was a dude. So, his “manhood” wouldn’t allow him to support a woman? He needed “male energy” in order to feel good about himself? My God, his biological father has fucking failed him, bruh. That’s sexism on a baffling level, people.

From there, we could talk about how he brought superstition into his analysis of the 13th Amendment. Son, what the fuck does a building not having a 13th floor have to do with the government’s “right” to treat prisoners like slaves? Sheesh, did I really hear him say that, man? What the fuck is actually going on here?! Lastly, we could talk about his “victim mentality” idea. Essentially, he used this idiotic phrase to recant everything he’s ever said about race relations in this country. Honestly, I think this was the worst part of the entire meeting, fam.

*Sigh* Kanye essentially blamed a “victim mentality” for why he previously criticized George W. Bush. He blamed a “victim mentality” for why Black people are upset about police brutality. Look, I guess getting murdered by the state with no reprisal has nothing to do with why we’re mad, bruh. Listen, this fool really brought up Black-on-Black crime for why we shouldn’t be upset with police. Newsflash, Kanye: ALL races are predominantly killed by members of the same fucking race! He would know that if he EVER read anything! Fuck, man! I didn’t think this dude could still make me angry, but I’m fucking livid! Like, he went to the cotdamn White House and said all that bullshit, son!

In my eyes, one of the main issues here is Kanye’s wealth. Only a wealthy person can afford the luxury of no longer identifying. Now, let me be clear, man: I’m not saying that money is a bad thing. Hell, I want a lot of it too, fam. However, Kanye wasn’t talking this shit when he was just a dude from Chicago. Frankly, he got rich and COMPLETELY forgot about the trial and tribulations of everyday people. He no longer has to be affected by the stop-and-frisk tactics that Trump wants to enact. He no longer has to worry about possibly dying at a traffic stop. He no longer has to worry about being mistreated by the justice system. So, he no longer gives a flying fuck about our pain, bruh.

In the end, the line in the sand has been drawn, son. Before, I was on some “I can’t fuck with Kanye” shit. Now, I’m on some “I can’t even fuck with you if you fuck with Kanye” shit. Ultimately, the music doesn’t matter, man. By and by, I don’t give a fuck if he drops another classic tomorrow. At the end of the day, I CANNOT and WILL NOT support a man who tries so hard to disparage the people who gave him a career and a platform. So, once and for all, fuck Kanye West, fam! That is all. LC out.

Uh, Shout-out To Taylor Swift

So, I won’t lie, son. It’s super easy to hate on Taylor Swift, man. I mean, she’s made a career out of dissing ex-boyfriends and being fake humble, fam. All I can say is, that ain’t the type of vibe I regularly endorse, bruh. In any case, I have to give credit where credit is due. Normally, when someone has a platform as huge as hers, they steer clear of ALL political discussions. However, instead of running from her influence, Swift has decided to use her name in a positive way. All in all, salute to Swift, brethren!

Ok, for those who missed it, Swift took to Instagram to talk about the upcoming midterm elections. Now, while her tax bracket might suggest some Republican ties, she actually took the time to endorse some Democratic candidates. Then again, it’s not necessarily about whether she’s a Democrat or a Republican. Frankly, she simply doesn’t bang with Marsha Blackburn, a GOP candidate running for Senate in Tennessee. Anyway, instead of just being a contrarian for the sake of it, Swift actually explained why she doesn’t rock with Blackburn. For one, she pointed to Blackburn’s views on women and gay rights. Furthermore, Swift actually brought up systemic racism in America, something I NEVER thought I’d see from her.

Moving on, Swift gave her support for Phil Bredesen for the Senate and Jim Cooper for the House of Representatives. Needless to say, a lot of people, including myself, were shocked that she made such a public declaration. Shit, in 2018, who would’ve thought that Swift would be out here talking about racism while Kanye West is busy giving Donald Trump a dick-flute solo? *Sigh* These are strange fucking times we live in, son. Strange times indeed.

In the end, shout-out to Taylor Swift, man. Hell, even though I’ve never given her any props before, I guess there’s a first time for everything, fam. Ultimately, I agree most with one point she made: “vote based on who most closely represents your values.” By and by, that doesn’t have shit to do with party lines, bruh. Now, everybody, get out there and vote on November 6! That is all. LC out.

Nah, Donald Trump, We’re Good On These Alerts

So, let me get straight to the point, son. Aiyyo, Donald Trump, check this out, bruh: we don’t need any alerts sent to our phones, man. Real talk, knock it the fuck off, dude. Shit, it’s bad enough that he’s ruined Twitter forever, fam. Frankly, I don’t need unfiltered shenanigans sent directly to my mobile device, brethren. All in all, how long will it take before he tries to propagate his propaganda on our phones, people?

Ok, at this point, I shouldn’t have to explain to anyone what’s going on here. I mean, I’m fairly certain that everybody with a smartphone got a Presidential Alert from FEMA. In any case, this was done as part of Trump’s National Wireless Emergency Alert System initiative. Now, I won’t lie, son. In case of an emergency, I can see how something like this would be helpful. However, we’re talking about a man who consistently uses technology and his position to spread vicious lies and dangerous rumors (word to Big Boi). On the real, I don’t want that type of person randomly popping up on my phone, man. Hell, I’d rather have a chick send me a nude pic with my wife in the room, fam. Side note, that is a complete lie, bruh. Ladies, don’t send me any nudes! I value my life, ma’am! Let me alone, Becky!

In the end, Trump and FEMA can keep their alerts, son. Ultimately, if I was really looking for information, I wouldn’t go to those sources, man. By and by, dudes like Trump would find a way to politically spin a cotdamn earthquake, fam. At the end of the day, I don’t need that type of energy around me, bruh. That is all. LC out.

This Is Why Kanye West Offends Me

So, let me keep it a buck, son. On the real, I never thought I’d write about Kanye West again, man. I mean, at this point, I’ve said damn near everything I could possibly say, fam. But, I’ve learned something new from his most recent press run, bruh: his support of Donald Trump is not the main thing that irks me, people. Like, I have the ability to understand someone’s point of view and still vehemently disagree with them. However, that’s my problem, folks. Kanye literally doesn’t have a point and his lack of knowledge is INCREDIBLY irritating.

Ok, before I continue, let me explain what I mean when I say that Kanye doesn’t know shit about shit. Now, take people like Ann Coulter and Tomi Lahren. Both of these women have the capacity to speak in coherent phrases and sentences. It just so happens that I hate EVERYTHING that comes out of their respective mouths. On the other hand, Kanye is completely unable to construct a logical argument for his beliefs. Shit, he’s been wearing a MAGA hat for about a year and he still can’t explicitly explain why he supports Trump. All I know is, “dragon energy” isn’t a thing and Kanye’s too grown to be this fucking elementary.

As another example, just the other day, he was walking around wearing his beloved MAGA hat and a Colin Kaepernick sweater. Well, what’s the science behind that, Kanye? No, “unity” and “love” is not a good enough reason for this display. Hell, Trump has used his platform on NUMEROUS occasions to take aim directly at Kaepernick. So, wearing both articles of clothing does nothing to improve relations, son. Listen, if Kanye were able to clearly outline his thoughts, I’d at least respect him. I would still hate everything about it, but at least I’d understand what’s going on in his head. As this moment, he’s a walking symbol of confusion and he really, REALLY needs to disappear, man.

In the end, go away, Kanye! Ultimately, I don’t want that Yandhi album and I don’t want that Good Ass Job album. By and by, Chance the Rapper should’ve left that idea in the mid-2000s where it originated. At the end of the day, I’m beyond tired of the stupidity, fam. All I can say is, Kanye needs to either read a book or just fall into the Bermuda Triangle. *Sigh* How about both, bruh? That is all. LC out.

It Better Be A Wrap For Brett Kavanaugh

Look, I’m going to try and keep this short today, son. Now, anytime I say that, I always seem to end up rambling. Nevertheless, I don’t know how much more there is to say, man. Frankly, the Senate needs to get Brett Kavanaugh the fuck outta here, fam. On the real, after Christine Blasey Ford‘s testimony, I 100% believe that Kavanaugh did that shit, bruh. With that being said, this dude is wholly unfit to sit anywhere near the Supreme Court, folks.

Ok, for those who missed it, Ford came with that ether yesterday. Now, while being questioned under oath, Ford made it perfectly clear that she has no doubts about who sexually assaulted her. Listen, not only was she positive about Kavanaugh’s identity, she also revealed that his friend, Mark Judge, was in the room when the incident took place. Real talk, this is important because of another detail she remembered. Apparently, a couple of weeks after the assault, she ran into Judge during his shift at a supermarket. This is notable because he spoke about his days working there in his own memoir. So, he inadvertently corroborated the validity of her memory, son.

On the flip side, Kavanaugh had a complete meltdown when it was his time to talk. All I know is, all of the “witch hunt” accusations haven’t debunked Ford’s story, man. Keeping it a buck, she’s really backed the GOP into a corner, fam. Shit, while watching Fox News, it was clear that none of the anchors wanted to call her a liar. Instead, they said shit like “we believe that she believes this story.” Meaning, they’re still holding out hope that they can spin the “it happened but it wasn’t Kavanaugh who assaulted her” narrative. All I can say is, nobody with a brain will believe that, bruh.

In the end, nothing else needs to be said here, son. Hell, even the American Bar Association wants the vote on Kavanaugh to be postponed, man. Listen, how can a man serve on the Supreme Court if he ain’t got a damn license, fam? Exactly. Ultimately, the Republicans can try to dodge this all they want to, bruh. At the end of the day, no one will be comfortable with Kavanaugh until a REAL investigation is conducted, people. By and by, it better be a wrap for him, brethren. Get his problematic ass away from our highest court. That is all. LC out.

The Women Supporting Brett Kavanaugh Confuse Me

So, I won’t lie, son. Today’s post is more of a philosophical debate than an indictment on Brett Kavanaugh. Frankly, I have no idea what to make of the allegations against him, man. Shit, Christine Blasey Ford could very well be telling the truth about her high school encounter with Kavanaugh. Deborah Ramirez could very well be telling the truth about her Yale University encounter with Kavanaugh. Keeping it a buck, we’ll only know for sure once the facts come out, fam. However, the women who are so quick to defend Kavanaugh confuse, bruh. Look, in the era of #MeToo and #TimesUp, what does it mean when women don’t believe women’s stories of assault?

Look, I was inspired to write this when I saw roughly 75 women hold a press conference to support Kavanaugh. Essentially, they were there to refute all of the claims against him and establish his credibility. My thing is, why are all of these women so ready to dismiss the accusations against him? Do they believe that their personal relationships with him automatically mean that he couldn’t have committed these acts? Man, one thing has absolutely nothing to do with the other, son. Listen, just because they had a positive experience with him doesn’t mean that he didn’t assault these women. All I know is, we’re looking at a group of women victim-shame other women. Clearly, that’s not a good look for anyone, fam.

The way I see it, situations like this damage the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, bruh. Real talk, if women don’t even have other women as allies, then how can behavior be changed and justice be served? Now, like I alluded to earlier, I have no idea what happened between Kavanaugh, Ford and Ramirez. Frankly, no one does but the parties involved, son. However, it’s unnerving how fast people will ignore problematic claims when they involve someone they know. Hell, we saw the same shit happen with Lena Dunham. Listen, she was a “feminist” until a guy she knew got accused, man. Then, all of a sudden, a woman’s claims shouldn’t be taken seriously. All in all, this sets a dangerous precedent, fam.

In the end, I don’t know what’s going on, son. Ultimately, this entire Supreme Court process has been a shit-show, man. By and by, there are a multitude of reasons why Kavanaugh shouldn’t be allowed on the bench, fam. At the end of the day, if these allegations are true, this just solidifies it, bruh. All I can say is, if Ford and Ramirez are being real, then every last one of Kavanaugh’s supporters should be ashamed of themselves, brethren. That is all. LC out.
