What’s good, brethren? On this episode, Randi B. and I were back on Facebook Live talking about my album (Mastermind by L. Charlemagne), parenthood, the COVID-19 vaccine and the presidential election. It evolved into a conversation that included a variety of other topics. Check it out on YouTube below. Yessir!
What’s good, brethren? On this episode, Randi B. and I were back on Facebook Live talking about the presidentialelection, Eva Longoria, Jeezy and Gucci Mane. It evolved into a conversation that included a variety of other topics. Check it out on YouTube below. Let’s go!
So, we’re finally here. After four years of NONSTOP SHENANIGANS, Donald Trump is about to lose his job. Now, even though we’re still waiting on the final tally from Georgia and North Carolina, Joe Biden already has enough electoral votes to become the President-elect. However, regardless of the inevitability, Trump is refusing to go quietly. Then again, I can’t say that I’m surprised, son. I mean, I never expected Trump to accept his fate. But, if there’s one thing that I know, fake news can’t save him, man.
Ok, for those who’ve been living in a bunker, Joe Biden has been elected President. Now, as it currently stands, Biden has garnered 290 electoral votes, 20 more than the 270 needed to secure the win. The wild part is, we still don’t have the total numbers from GA and PA. In any case, if the current trend continues, the final count will be 306 electoral votes for Biden and 229 electoral votes for Trump. By comparison, the difference in electoral votes would match the number that Trump reached to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. All in all, America said fuck youuuuu and go hoooooome to President Orange.
Now, despite the obvious loss, Trump is trying to do what he’s done his entire Presidency: lie. Without any substantiated evidence, he’s out here claiming widespread voter fraud and his supporters are eating it up. For the most part, Trump believes that mail-in voting is the devil (despite the fact that the GOP has long-benefited from the practice). Funny thing is, in Trump’s world, fraud only happened in the states where he lost. What are the odds, huh? Like, this is the same man who wanted everyone to stop counting votes in states where he had a lead and keep counting votes in states where he was trailing. On the real, it’s just shameless tomfoolery, fam. The problem is, his gullible fan base simply accepts whatever he says, bruh.
In the end, Donald Trump just needs to face the music, son. Ultimately, this is one time when his spin tactics won’t work, man. By and by, math is undefeated, fam. At the end of the day, his denials are right on brand, bruh. Shit, when it came to COVID-19, he denied science for the entire year. Of COURSE he would deny math now. Womp womp. You’re fired, bitch! LC out.
So, like I always say, I’m going to try and keep this post short today. Essentially, I don’t want to hear shit about polls, son. Real talk, I don’t think people have learned anything from the 2016 Presidential Election. Now, if anyone needs a reminder, here’s how it went: right up until voting day, Hillary Clinton was leading Donald Trump in basically all of the national polls. Well, we all know how that story ended, man.
With all of that being said, don’t talk to me about Joe Biden‘s lead in the national polls right now. The way I see it, this is the same false sense of security that individuals had four years ago. Frankly, I don’t give a flying fuckity-fuck about what a small faction of Americans said in a poll. One, they could be lying their asses off. Two, these folks aren’t representative of the entire country. So, throw all of these cotdamn polls in the garbage, fam.
In the end, everyone needs to just go out and vote, bruh. Ultimately, until we actually submit our ballots, all of this auxiliary talk is for the birds, son. By and by, I’m sure everyone already knows how I feel. At the end of the day, we need to get Trump’s goofy ass the fuck up outta here, man. VOTE! That is all. LC out.
What’s good, brethren? On this (delayed) episode, Randi B. and I were back on Facebook Live talking about the presidential debate, COVID-19 and Breonna Taylor. It evolved into a conversation that included too many other topics to name. Check it out on YouTube below. Let’s go!
So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’m not surprised about Donald Trump‘s taxes. If anything, The New York Times‘ article confirmed two things that I already knew: our tax system is a joke and Trump isn’t NEARLY as successful as he pretends to be. In any case, this may some crazy, but I’m not even that mad at Trump. Honestly, I find all of this funnier than I probably should, man. The fact of the matter is, he was able to fleece the IRS because the system is fucking broken. Or, rather, it’s working exactly the way it was designed for the 1 Percent.
Ok, for those who missed it, The Times just exposed like two decades of Trump’s tax returns. Now, as expected, there are shenanigans galore, fam. Essentially, in 10 of the last 15 years, Trump hadn’t paid ANY federal taxes. In addition, in two of those other years, he only paid $750 each year. Yes, that’s correct, bruh. Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States, paid these same United States $1500 in taxes across two years. In addition, he’s continually claimed losses and even collected a $72.9 million refund once. All in all, Trump’s finances are chock-full of all manners of fuckery, son.
Now, just in case people don’t understand how absurd this is, attorney Max Kennerly compared Trump’s 2017 tax return to Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. During that year, Biden paid the government about $3.7 million. Harris paid roughly $500K, Sanders paid $300K and Warren paid $270K. So, the man who’s leading the “free world” and supposedly more successful than his competitors is paying EXPONENTIALLY less than everyone else. Frankly, it’s disgusting, man.
All I know is, THIS type of shit is why there’s a backlash against capitalism and the wealthy. The truth is, A LOT of these motherfuckers just don’t pay their fair share, fam. I mean, it’d be one thing if they paid their taxes and gave their employees a decent wage. Instead, they bleed the average American dry AND leave us to carry the country’s tax burden. Keeping it a buck, Trump may be one of the most egregious examples, but he’s FAR from the only one who takes advantage of this system.
In the end, what else do people need to know, bruh? Ultimately, a number of Trump supporters voted for him because he’s “good for business.” By and by, this false narrative “allowed” them to look past the blatant racism and xenophobia. However, the numbers are cut and dry, son. He ruined a good economy, which he inherited, AND he’s been losing money for EONS. At the end of the day, EVERYONE knows what they need to do in November, man. Fuck this guy, fam. That is all. LC out.
What’s good, brethren? On this episode, Randi B. and I were back on Facebook Live talking about Breonna Taylor, Daniel Cameron and the future of blogging. It evolved into a conversation that included Charles Barkley, Tomi Lahren, Candace Owens, George Floyd, Derek Chauvin, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Justine Damond, Cardi B, Rodney King, Navid Afkari, Donald Trump, Dana White, Kyle Rittenhouse and Walter Scott. Check it out on YouTube below. Yessir!
So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, deep thoughts can surface at the weirdest times, man. Somehow, UFC-sponsored violence led my brain to the Black Lives Matter and Blue Lives Matter delegations. Shit, the bad blood between Tyron Woodley and Colby Covington brought out all of the social media warriors, fam. But, after wading through scores of unnecessary comments, I have a real question for the Blue Lives Matter crowd: do y’all really believe that cops are infallible?
Ok, as a quick summary, here’s what led me to this post. Now, Covington, a fighter in the UFC’s Welterweight division, is an avid Donald Trump fan and MAGA supporter. Woodley, the former Welterweight champion, took it upon himself to represent BLM. In the lead-up to the fight, Covington took to Twitter to say that he’s representing all police and military officers who’ve been “vilified.” In addition, after Covington put a thorough beating on Woodley, he proceeded to call BLM a “terrorist organization” and that Woodley was a “Marxist.”
Now, here’s where my confusion comes in. Real talk, I’ll never understand why (mostly) White people believe that BLM is some affront to law enforcement. Like, we’re literally asking for them to stop killing us and to be held accountable for misdeeds. That’s all. That’s literally all. Frankly, I don’t understand why they can’t support cops AND acknowledge when they do something wrong. Bruh, it’s ACTUALLY possible to do both. The way I see it, if Blues Live Matter really supported the police, they would want them to be fair and balanced with ALL of America‘s citizens.
I mean, why can’t people support cops and still admit that they fucked up when they killed Amadou Diallo? Why can’t people support cops and still admit that they fucked up when they killed Tamir Rice? Why can’t people support cops and still admit that they fucked up when they killed Botham Jean? Why can’t people support cops and still admit that they fucked up when they killed Philando Castile? Hell, the police KNOW that they fucked up with Breonna Taylor because they got rid of the no-knock warrant AND paid her family $12 million. Still, the Blue Lives Matter crowd won’t acknowledge ANY wrongdoing. It’s fucking baffling, son.
In the end, the division is this country is beyond toxic, man. Ultimately, we can’t agree on ANYTHING. By and by, we can’t even agree that unjustly killing people is wrong. At the end of the day, I’m reaching the point where I’m starting to believe that this nation is beyond saving. All in all, I’m just worried about making as much money as possible and contributing to Black generational wealth. Fuck all of this other shit, fam. That is all. LC out.
So, to the best of my ability, I’m going to try and keep this post short today. Yeah, I say that all of the time, but I “mean it” right now. In any case, I really hate the trend that happens in this country. Black and Brown people describe systemic mistreatment by law enforcement, our cries fall on deaf ears, some loser takes unnecessary action against unassuming officers and the national conversation goes back to ground zero. All in all, I’m tired of the cycle, son. The way I see it, the dialogue isn’t black and white. There is a grey area, man. Frankly, I don’t want cops shot either.
Ok, for those who are living under a rock, some wild shit went down in Los Angeles this past Saturday. Essentially, some random dude just walked up to a police car in Compton and shot two cops from the passenger side. No warning, no provocation, nothing. Just opened fire out of nowhere. Luckily, both officers are expected to survive after coming out of surgery. Now, I won’t lie, fam. On the real, this situation has caused an interesting schism on social media. One side sees how troubling incidents like these are. Another side is celebrating violence against officers. All I know is, the latter is a dangerous ideal to embrace, bruh.
Look, I know what some people may be thinking. Yes, it’s EXTREMELY disheartening to see law enforcement CONSTANTLY get away with murder. In that sense, it’s natural to desire retribution and retaliation. Especially since we can’t depend on the law to protect us from the law. But, everyone needs to see the bigger picture, son. I mean, just look at how this always plays out. Anytime we make some headway with depicting our pain, some idiot pulls a stunt like this and erases any chance of change. Instead of seeing the humanity in innocent minorities, detractors just use a situation like this shooting to ignore our narrative. The fact is, it’s fucking counterproductive, man.
Like, what do we really want, fam? Do we want the authorities to be held accountable for their actions or do we want to go to war with the cops? Seriously, I want to know. I’m all about the liberation of my people, but I’m also a proponent of strategy. Just bucking off on the police is NOT a recipe for success, bruh. Shit, motherfuckers like Donald Trump can’t WAIT to send the National Guard and the Army into our communities, son. All I can say is, the little handguns and semiautomatic rifles we have ain’t gonna do shit against tanks and drones, man.
Listen, maybe I’m oversimplifying this, but the solution is clear to me: officers need to feel the pain for committing murder. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s A LOT easier said that done, brethren. But, just hear me out. Take Breonna Taylor‘s case, for example. Word is, the city just settled with her family for $12 million. Now, just imagine that the money had to come out of the guilty officers’ pensions. I guarantee that cops would think twice before pulling these triggers. Imagine if more than 1% of officers were actually convicted of murder. I guarantee they’d think twice before pulling these triggers. The truth is, they’re so brazen with their misconduct because they know that NOTHING will happen to them. At the end of the day, REAL consequence will beget an adjustment in behavior.
In the end, I’m sure that there are a number of people out there who disagree with me. Ultimately, everyone is entitled to their opinion. By and by, I’m not the guy who doesn’t see the value in protection. Hell, I really wish that New York would loosen their gun laws, but that’s another story. However, I’m not down with just recklessly shooting cops and thinking it’s going to have a position outcome. If anything, it takes away from our REAL message and puts MORE minorities in harm’s way. *Sigh* All of this is just exhausting, fam. Fucking exhausting. That is all. LC out.
