I Thought Mexico Was Paying For The Wall, Donald Trump

So, I have a serious question for all Donald Trump supporters. Now, all jokes aside, are y’all okay with this government shutdown? Like, are y’all okay with American lives being negatively impacted over a border wall that Trump said Mexico would pay for? Then again, why am I even asking, son? Roughly 300,000 people have raised over $18 million on GoFundMe for this very wall, man. All I know is, Trump lied (again) to his own base and they’re either too ambivalent or too dumb to care, fam.

Ok, to be real, I shouldn’t have to explain to anyone what’s going on right now, bruh. Shit, as of today, the government shutdown has been in effect for almost two weeks. Now, under normal circumstances, a shutdown is already trash, son. However, this particular one is especially garbage because it began during the holidays, man. Meaning, scores of Americans had to go through Christmas and New Year’s Day without their money or benefits. To make matters worse, the catalyst of this shutdown is a stupid ass wall that taxpayers aren’t even supposed to be responsible for.

Look, let’s be perfectly clear here, fam. During his presidential campaign, Trump FREQUENTLY reiterated that Mexico was going to pay for a wall along the border between their country and the United States. I mean, that promise was THE fundamental piece of his platform, bruh. Anyway, after the former and current Mexican presidents told Trump to go fuck himself, his wall became our problem. All I know is, it’s fucking ridiculous, son. For God‘s sake, he’s denying federal employees their pay for something that was never our fucking responsibility, man! Frankly, I have NO idea why his supporters are even remotely okay with this, brethren.

In the end, this is example 2,336,736 of why Donald Trump is a terrible fucking president, son. Ultimately, the fool behind The Art of the Deal has let three government shutdowns occur on his watch. *Sigh* I’m just tired of the constant fuckery, man. Trump can never make a deal, consistently loses cabinet members and his base is still none the wiser. By and by, THIS is why reasonable people think Trump supporters are stupid, fam. This is why. That is all. LC out.

Justice For Junior

So, those who know me know that I’m a Bronx dude to my core. Like, the way I walk, talk and act come directly from my Boogie Down upbringing. However, I’m also familiar with the fuckery that can transpire in my borough. With that being said, I can’t put into words how tragic Lesandro Guzman-Feliz‘s death is, son. All I know is, NO explanation, justification or scenario can justify what those demons did to that 15-year-old boy.

Ok, for those who are unaware, Feliz, better known as Junior, was horrifically murdered last week. Now, at first, no one knew why members of the Trinitarios gang targeted Junior. Based on initial information, all we knew is that five men literally dragged Junior out of a bodega and hacked him with machetes. Sadly, the entire event was captured on video surveillance and cellphone footage. From there, Junior stumbled to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he later died.

Now, as more intel is being gathered, we now know that this whole tragedy is a case of mistaken identity. Apparently, all of this stemmed from a sextape circulating around social media. As the story goes, a video was making its rounds that showed a teen girl having sex with one boy while another boy rapped next to them. From what I understand, the girl is related to one of the dudes who was looking for Junior. In any case, they targeted Junior because he looked like the boy rapping in the video. Problem is, THAT WASN’T HIM!

Moving on, when these assholes realized they killed the wrong kid, they tried to apologize to the family in several text and Facebook messages. *Sigh* Listen, there are SEVERAL things wrong with all of this, man. First, a “whoops, we killed the wrong dude” explanation is not acceptable, fam. Real talk, even if they found the right kid, NO ONE deserved to die over this, bruh! Ok, yes, I can possibly understand wanting to beat up the person responsible for leaking the video. But, all of that machete shit was WILDLY unnecessary, people!

Next, why didn’t ANYONE in the bodega call for help? I mean, they just let these dudes drag that boy out of the store! Look, I’m not saying that the store owner should’ve fought five clowns with machetes by himself. However, either him or his workers should’ve called somebody, son! For God‘s sake, that boy got butchered in their vicinity! The staff could’ve done SOMETHING, man! ANYTHING!

In the end, I don’t know what else to say, fam. Ultimately, this type of savagery is HIGHLY unfortunate and uncalled for, bruh. By and by, I’m happy that all of the suspects have been caught, folks. At the end of the day, I hope the judge throws ALL of the books at them, brethren. Frankly, these dickheads don’t deserve leniency or pity, people. LC out.

P.S. I advise everyone out there to NOT watch the video of his murder. One, I want us all to respect Junior’s life. Two, nobody really needs to witness such a brutal homicide, son. That is all.

P.P.S. Shout-out to Cardi B for donating $8,000 to the family’s GoFundMe page. Real talk, that was a super stand-up move, fam. Good day.

Long Live James Shaw Jr.!

So, I’m going to keep this post short today, son. On the real, I just want to take the time to give a shout-out to James Shaw Jr. I mean, that guy has to be the dopest dude in America right now, man. Shit, not only did he stop Travis Reinking from killing more people in a Nashville Waffle House, but he’s also raised a substantial amount of money for the families of the victims. All in all, this man should be celebrated, fam. No if, ands or buts about it, bruh.

Ok, at this point, if anyone isn’t aware of Shaw’s heroism, then shame on them, son. Basically, when Reinking decided to murder innocent people the other week, Shaw took it upon himself to act. He grabbed the burning barrel of Reinking’s rifle and wrestled it away from the killer. Essentially, by putting himself in harm’s way, Shaw saved the lives of many others. Real talk, he would have been enough of a hero if he left it there, man.

But, Shaw is way doper than that, fam. After receiving recognition for his bravery, he decided to start a GoFundMe donation. Originally, his intention was to raise $15,000 for the families of the deceased. Instead, he was able to raise upwards of $200,000, bruh. So, he saves additional people from getting hurt AND finds a way to contribute to the loved ones in need. Sheesh, how can anyone hate on this shit, son? Keeping it a buck, the world would be a MUCH better place if more people like Shaw existed.

In the end, there’s nothing else to say, man. Long live James Shaw Jr., fam! That is all. LC out.
