What’s good, brethren? On this episode, Randi B. and I were back on Facebook Live talking about the presidential election, 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, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I feel very scatterbrained today. Like, I have so many thoughts right now that I’m not exactly sure how to structure it all. The fact of the matter is, Kyle Rittenhouse is a vigilante, a terrorist and a monster that America created. I mean, just think about it, man: Rittenhouse shot three people who were protesting the fact that the police shot Jacob Blake. Essentially, two people died because they were upset that ANOTHER unarmed Black man got shot. *Sigh* I literally can’t make this shit up, fam.
Ok, for those who missed it, Kenosha, Wisconsin just became even more of a shit-show. Now, after the shooting of Jacob Blake, protestors have taken to the streets. As expected, folks are fucking outraged that yet another Black person has been victimized by law enforcement. However, instead of acknowledging the reason for people’s rage, detractors and media personalities just demonize the way that folks protest. And THIS is exactly the reason why murderers like Rittenhouse exist.
Look, it happens time and time again, bruh. Racists constantly spin the narrative to distract from what people are protesting about. Instead of recognizing the injustice, they talk about the manner in which people react. But, we all know that this has nothing to do with “riots,” son. Shit, all Colin Kaepernick did was kneel (at the behest of a veteran) and the nation lost its fucking mind. So, miss me with all of that, man. The problem is, painting protestors as “thugs” and “degenerates” is precisely why killers like Rittenhouse feel emboldened.
Hell, let’s be clear, fam. Rittenhouse came from Antioch, Illinois, a town 30 minutes away from Kenosha, to “protect” a car dealership that wasn’t his. In addition, despite the fact that Kenosha is an open carry state, Rittenhouse is too young to even qualify. On top of that, he was outside after curfew, just like all of the protestors that police chief Daniel Miskinis was criticizing. The fact of the matter is, Rittenhouse is a documented Blue Lives Matter zealot who took it upon himself to kill protestors.
The way I see it, Rittenhouse is a product of the narrative that’s permeated through right-wing America. For so long, they’ve denied the agency of Black people, criticized anyone who’s dared to speak out and blindly support our victimizers. All in all, this is the world that Rittenhouse subscribes to. So, it makes perfect sense that he would take this type of action. He’s just espousing the beliefs that he’s been subjected to. With all of that being said, the entire country is responsible for the deeds of that 17-year-old terrorist.
In the end, I’m beyond tired, bruh. Ultimately, I’ve said that before, but I legitimately shed a tear last night. By and by, it’s still painful to see that a large portion of the country doesn’t give a flying shit about us. At the end of the day, the idea that we’re desensitized is nonsense. The truth is, I still feel EVERYTHING, son. Everything. That is all. LC out.
P.S. From the depths of my soul, I want to say FUCK TUCKER CARLSON! Ok, yes, he’s always been a piece of shit, but last night was a new low, even for him. This clown-cake really suggested that Rittenhouse was dispensing justice because the police wouldn’t. Like, I don’t even know how to properly respond to that statement. Listen, I know the game that Fox News is playing, but this is too far, man. Honestly, they need to take some type of action against him ASAP. Fin.
So, I’m going to try and keep this post short today. On the real, I’m just here to tell Katie Couric to knock off the nonsense. The fact of the matter is, she tried to press a narrative onto Denzel Washington and he wasn’t having it, son. All in all, she needed to lay off of the senseless fear and actually internalize what Washington was telling her.
Ok, for those who missed it, Couric was recently a guest on the Everything Iconic with Danny Pellegrino podcast. Now, during the show, she talked about her experience interviewing Washington for Dateline during his The Manchurian Candidate press run with Meryl Streep. Anyway, at one point, Couric thought it was a good idea to ask Washington about politics. Specifically, she asked him if Hollywood stars should “stick to acting.” Side note, that question sounded to me like a “nicer version” of Laura Ingraham‘s “shut up and dribble” comments. But, that’s neither here nor there, man.
Now, after being asked that question, Washington stated that he’s “not a Hollywood folk.” In fact, he asserted that he’s a “human being” whose “job is acting.” From there, Couric tried to find all kinds of colorful ways to ask her condescending ass question. Each time, Washington shut her ass down and proclaimed that he’s not the monolith that she’s trying to portray him as. Needless to say, Couric didn’t like this because now she’s using words like “shaken” and “uncomfortable” to describe her interaction with Washington.
Look, I can’t even explain how much I hate shit like this, fam. Like, don’t paint him as the aggressor because he didn’t entertain these stupid ass probes. The truth is, she tried to generalize people of his ilk and he wasn’t going for it. All in all, instead of playing the victim, she should’ve read the room and just kept it pushing. Frankly, Washington didn’t do anything disrespectful. Real talk, he saw the narrative that she was trying to create and he shut that shit down. Plain and simple.
In the end, someone needs to tell Katie Couric to relax, bruh. Ultimately, she tried to push an agenda and it backfired. By and by, Denzel Washington wasn’t for the games, son. Maybe next time, she’ll just ask an actor about their film and not try to diminish their supposed beliefs. *Sigh* We can all peep those microaggressions, Couric. Go somewhere else with that bullshit. That is all. LC out.
So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’ve always thought that Chris Matthews and Bill O’Reilly were the same person. I mean, they’re both loudmouthed and opinionated political commentators who refuse to let their guests speak. In addition, MSNBC and Fox News are essentially two sides of the same coin. With all of that being said, I’m not in the least bit surprised that Matthews and O’Reilly also have sexual harassment in common. All in all, the Me Too movement has officially gotten another member of the press the fuck outta here.
Ok, for those who missed it, after hosting Hardball with Chris Matthews since 1997, Matthews abruptly resigned on air. Side note, I’m using the word “resigned” loosely, son. In actuality, MSNBC told him to go kick rocks, man. Now, despite engaging in copious amounts of fuckery (such as likening Bernie Sanders‘ movement to the Nazi invasion of France), Matthews’ comments about women are what got his ass in trouble. Apparently, he’s been saying all manners of tomfoolery to women for years.
Now, things came to a head when Laura Bassett, a writer for GQ, detailed her experience with Matthews. As the story goes, she decided to speak up after she saw how Matthews talked to Elizabeth Warren on-air. From there, Bassett described a situation from 2016 where Matthews repeatedly made comments about Bassett’s attractiveness and wanting to fall in love with her. Needless to say, she ain’t like any of that shit, fam. In any case, Bassett isn’t the first woman to allege that Matthews has said some fuckity-fuck shit to them. All I can say is, this seems to have been a pattern for eons, bruh. Side note, he once made a joke about giving Hillary Clinton a “Bill Cosby pill” before an interview. Yeeeeah, that’s not something that should ever be said, brethren.
Moving on, after all of the stories (and to the surprise of his co-hosts), Matthews quit his show on live television. All I know is, we can add his name to the likes of O’Reilly, Matt Lauer and Charlie Rose who’ve had to bend the knee to their own shenanigans. Once again, I don’t understand why this behavior is even an issue, son. Like, is it really that hard to determine if a woman is open to advances? For God‘s sake, why is this so hard for some dudes to understand? The way I see it, there is NO reason for most of these cats to get caught up in the bullshit that they do. *Sigh* Another one bites the dust, man.
In the end, I can’t necessarily say that I’ll miss Chris Matthews. Ultimately, I feel like he’s another symptom of the machine, bruh. By and by, I may watch cable news, but I take everything with a grain of salt, son. At the end of the day, I don’t need “journalists” to explain the news to me. Just tell me what happened and let me come to my own conclusion, man. Also, fellow men, I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: find women who are actually interested. Don’t say “nice tits,” Michael Bloomberg. Don’t prematurely confess “love,” Chris Matthews. *Sigh* Knock the goofy shit off, people. That is all. LC out.
So, here we are, son. Yet another example of why I vehemently hate politics, man. I mean, journalists, pundits and elected officials have the uncanny ability to turn ANYTHING into a political shit-show. All I know is, I’m fucking disgusted right now, fam. Seriously, anyone trying to turn this Jeffrey Epstein shit into a partisan issue is the scum of the Earth, bruh. The way I see it, this situation is WAY bigger than some Democrat and Republican tomfoolery, people.
Now, before I continue, let me layout all of the despicable things that Epstein has been accused of, son. Ok, for those who are unaware, Epstein is a financier who manages the assets of wealthy individuals. Now, a lot of news outlets have called him a billionaire, but Forbes thinks it’s all shenanigans, man. Shit, he could be, but since his client list is secret, there’s no way to properly determine his wealth, fam. In any case, Epstein is on the hook for an alleged sex-trafficking ring, bruh. Essentially, the authorities believe that Epstein is out here abusing scores of underage girls. Apparently, he’s been violating girls for years and making them recruit more girls for him.
Moving on, since the alleged behavior has been going on for years, everyone wants to know if his associates had any idea about him. The problem is, his associates include Donald Trump and Bill Clinton. Now, because of this, the Right and the Left have been slinging accusations at their respective representatives. Hell, Fox News is trying their hardest to include Clinton in Epstein’s mess and newspapers like The Washington Post are heightening the link between Trump and Epstein. The fact is, both men had a relationship with this sicko.
Look, regardless of what both sides want to say, both Trump and Clinton had numerous interactions with Epstein. Like, Clinton has flown on Epstein’s plane on more than one occasion. Side bar, Epstein’s plane was called the Lolita Express, son. For God‘s sake, the idiot wasn’t even trying to hide his debauchery, man. On the real, something is seriously wrong with that dude, fam. Anyway, Trump hung with Epstein at his Mar-a-Lago Club on numerous occasions. In addition, Trump once called Epstein a “terrific guy” who “likes beautiful women as much as [he does], and many of them are on the younger side.” Bruh, I couldn’t make this shit up! All in all, it seems like everybody knew EXACTLY who Epstein was/is.
All I can say is, the last thing this story needs is a political spin, son. In my eyes, if any of these fuckers knew what Epstein was up to, then they all need to be strung up, man. Real talk, I don’t give a fuck what party any of these people belong to. Frankly, when little girls are being abused, anyone knowledgeable needs to hang, fam. To me, the fact that I need to even say that shows how far gone this country is, bruh. At the end of the day, there are things in this life that are WAY bigger than political affiliations, brethren. The safety of underage girls is one of them.
In the end, I hope they throw all of the proverbial books at Epstein, son. Ultimately, this man is a sex offender who continued to hurt girls, man. By and by, his fate should be sealed, fam. From there, anybody else who knew about his dastardly deeds should pay too, bruh. If it’s Donald Trump, then so be it. If it’s Bill Clinton, then so be it. Neither one of those men should be bigger than justice, folks. Then again, I’m not naïve, people. The powers that be would never let those men fall. *Sigh* That is all. LC out.
So, I won’t lie, son. Real talk, I can’t even pretend like I’m surprised, man. I mean, anytime there’s an opportunity, bigots are going to dig into their bigotry bag, fam. In any case, this The Little Mermaid shit is especially preposterous. Like, really? Really, folks? We’re seriously out here debating the race of a fictional character? *Sigh* I guess it’s time to get these jokes off, bruh.
Ok, for those who missed it, Disney just brought out the prejudice in a number of people. Now, Halle Bailey, one half of the Beyoncé-signed sister duo Chloe x Halle, was cast as Ariel in the upcoming live-action version of The Little Mermaid. Anyway, on paper, Bailey definitely has the chops to kill this role. I mean, she’s a credible actress, as seen on Grown-ish, and she’s an incredible singer. So, this should be a layup, right? Well, not according to a bunch of racists on social media, son.
Now, from the minute news went out, the hate train started rolling, man. Shit, whether we’re talking about the #NotMyAriel hashtag or the “Make Ariel White Again” group on Facebook, an unfortunate faction of people started to attack Bailey’s race. Apparently, a fictional character, who is also an imaginary entity, cannot be Black. All I can say is, are folks fucking serious, fam?!
Listen, to begin, Ariel is a fucking mermaid, bruh. Last time I checked, MERMAIDS AREN’T REAL, SON! Hell, this is like when Megyn Kelly and company legitimately tried to argue the race of Santa Claus on Fox News. Seriously, are certain White people so insecure, they need fake characters to validate themselves? Fam, we’re talking about a cotdamn mermaid who’s friends with a Jamaican crab and gets her voice box taken by an octopus in a dress. That’s the fight these folks are trying to fight, man? For God‘s sake, don’t these people have more important shit to worry about? Are they paying their mortgages on time? Did their children eat for dinner? Like, the ethnicity of Ariel is not the hill to die on, brethren.
In the end, I need everyone to understand something: if the race of Ariel causes a person to say bad shit about Black people, then they’re racist. Ultimately, there are no ifs, ands or buts about it, son. By and by, if White people weren’t pissed about the casting of Gods of Egypt, then shut the fuck up. If they weren’t pissed about Fisher Stevens playing Ben Jabituya in Short Circuit, then shut the fuck up. If they weren’t pissed about Scarlett Johansson playing a fucking Japanese cyborg in Ghost in the Shell, then PLEASE shut the fuck up. Side bar, I love Scarlett Johansson, but that’s neither here nor there. At the end of the day, race only becomes an issue in casting when White people don’t get the role. So, these folks can kiss the crack of every minority ass, man. That is all. LC out.
So, before I begin, let me say that I know what some people might be thinking. Yeah, I’m aware that writing this post is a bit hypocritical, given the title. However, today’s thoughts aren’t really about Laura Ingraham. In reality, they’re about how we all react to Laura Ingraham. Keeping it a buck, we need to stop giving her attention, son. All in all, why the fuck do we care about what she says, man?
Ok, for those who missed it, Laura Ingraham went into her Laura Ingraham bag. Now, while addressing Nipsey Hussle’s funeral at the Staples Center, she decided to laugh and take swipes at the deceased rapper. I mean, despite all of the things that Hussle did for his community, Ingraham simply labeled him as an artist who “released a song called ‘FDT,” F Donald Trump.” From there, her and Raymond Arroyo showed a picture of YG, not Nip, and laughed about the song’s chorus. All I can say is, it was incredibly distasteful, fam.
But, with all of that being said, why is anyone surprised, bruh? Like, this is the same woman who told LeBron James to “shut up and dribble.” This is the same woman who publicly ridiculed David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland shooting. Frankly, she’s given us AMPLE examples that she’s a piece of shit, son. The truth is, the more we react to her tomfoolery, the more she’s going to feel emboldened, man. Real talk, she’s no different than Tomi Lahren, fam. The way I see it, we need to stop giving these vapid losers notoriety, folks. Their opinions truly mean nothing, brethren.
In the end, Ingraham is going to Ingraham, son. Ultimately, when she gets on her bullshit, we need to look the other way, man. By and by, if a tree falls in the forest and no one’s there to hear it, does it make a sound? Who the fuck cares, fam? Let that tree “tree” by itself, bruh. At the end of the day, our anger is what these idiots feed off of, people. They don’t deserve any of our peace, B. That is all. LC out.
So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’m mad at myself, man. I’m mad that I fell for the gaffle, fam. I’m mad that it didn’t even cross my mind that an idiot could fabricate a story like this. All in all, fuck Jussie Smollett, bruh. Keeping it a buck, if he really did stage a hate crime, which it seems like he did, we need to throw his ass into the fucking abyss, people. The way I see it, an action like this is unforgivable, folks. Real talk, this type of tomfoolery could have lasting and damaging implications.
Ok, for those who haven’t been paying attention, Chicago police have poked a ton of holes in Smollett’s story, son. Now, I started to believe something was up when homie was onstage saying he was the “gay Tupac.” Fam, what part of the game is that? I mean, is this how far someone would go for “clout,” man? For God’s sake, the two alleged attackers ended up being Nigerian brothers who knew Smollett. Shit, one of them appeared as an extra on Empire and another one is apparently Smollett’s trainer. Frankly, I don’t know who is who, bruh.
To make matters worse, the brothers have seemingly admitted that Smollett paid them to “attack” him. According to new reports, when the cops raided the brothers’ crib, they found ropes, masks and bleach. Like, I don’t even know what to say here, son. In all honesty, Smollett’s alleged actions are EXTREMELY dangerous, man. Hell, we legitimately live in a country where Black and gay people are harmed for being Black, gay or both. So, why the FUCK would Smollett play games with a narrative like this? All I know is, he’s made it INCREDIBLY difficult for real victims to get justice, fam. Listen, because of his seemingly false “this is MAGA country” claims, Fox News and the right-wing are already running with this, bruh. Smollett has given them all the ammo they need to dismiss REAL hatred and bigotry.
In the end, I’ll say it again, son. Fuck Jussie Smollett, man! Ultimately, I have to use the word “allegedly” for this entire post. However, shit ain’t looking good for him, fam. By and by, if it’s truly confirmed that he staged this whole incident, I hope he never works again, bruh. At the end of the day, fuck his music, fuck his acting and fuck any other endeavor of his, brethren. As a matter of fact, he needs to go to jail for some nonsense like this, folks. All I can say is, it takes a foul individual to be this disgusting, people. *Sigh* LC out.
