Andrew Gillum Is Out Here Wilin’

*Sigh* Brother, brother, brother. What in the plum fuckity-fuck has Andrew Gillum been doing out here, son? I mean, I’m not one of those people who believes that politicians are saints. In fact, if anybody has ever read this blog, they’d know that I think the majority of them are full of shit. However, folks need to do a better job of hiding their tomfoolery, man. The truth is, I’m baffled by the situation that Gillum has found himself in, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it, Gillum is in a world of shit right now. So, this past Thursday, he was found in a hell of a predicament. Now, according to reports, Gillum was discovered in a Miami Beach hotel with two other people (including a male escort who overdosed) and three bags of crystal meth. That’s right, the man who narrowly lost to Ron DeSantis by less than a percent for Governor of Florida was found in all types of compromising positions, bruh. Needless to say, I’d bet that it’s pretty much a wrap for his political career, son.

Now, as of today, Gillum is entering rehab for “alcohol abuse.” According to him, he started drinking heavily after his defeat to DeSantis. But, he denies using meth and hasn’t really said shit about the escort who was tripping on that Walter White. All in all, I really don’t know what to say, man. The fact is, as a Black guy, I’m especially disappointed when one of our own is caught up in some fuckery. Frankly, our numbers are small in these spaces, so we don’t have time for dudes to mess up the bag for everyone else, fam.

In the end, I hope that Gillum gets his shit together, bruh. Ultimately, he had a lot of potential, but I don’t see how any voter base could root for him after this. By and by, a few bags of Heisenberg isn’t worth an entire career, son. Sadly, Andrew Gillum had to learn this the hard way, man. *Sigh* Another one bites the dust, fam. That is all. LC out.

Are Folks Surprised That Ronald Reagan Said Racist Sh*t?

So, here we are, son. Shit, the more things change the more they stay the same, man. I mean, the sky is blue, water is wet and Ronald Reagan said racist shit. Like, are folks actually surprised by this, fam? Are people really shocked that Reagan said some negative shit about Black people? If so, then those people have never paid attention to his political career, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, Tim Naftali, the man who ran the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum from 2007 to 2011, released some audio of a private conversation between then-Governor Reagan and President Nixon. Now, during the conversation, the two men were talking about a United Nations gathering. Anyway, during that meeting, the organization decided to recognize the People’s Republic of China. In addition, during the General Assembly, members of the Tanzanian delegation had a good time dancing. With that being said, this is where Reagan’s racism took off.

Now, during his convo with Nixon, Reagan literally said “To see those, those monkeys from those African countries… damn them, they’re still uncomfortable wearing shoes!” Moving on, in response to Reagan’s words, all Nixon did was laugh. Side bar, Nixon also called Black people “cannibals” in another convo, but we don’t have time for that right now. So, here it is, two former presidents disparaging an entire country and an entire continent. *Sigh* And people wonder why Black people don’t trust politicians.

Look, if anyone has ever paid attention to Reagan, then they shouldn’t be startled by this. Hell, a lot of Reagan’s political rhetoric and policies were based in bigotry, son. Listen, this is the same man that thought it was okay for people to discriminate against Black people in the housing market. Fam, he actually said “If an individual wants to discriminate against Negroes or others in selling or renting his house, it is his right to do so.”

Also, Reagan is the same man who was in charge during the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986. Now, for those who are unaware, this is the law that caused the 100:1 sentencing disparity between offenders who sold crack cocaine and offenders who sold pure cocaine. Meaning, minorities, who were more likely to sell/use crack, were getting WAY more prison time than pure cocaine dealers. Needless to say, this ravaged Black and Brown communities for years to come, man.

In the end, folks just need to listen to Killer Mike‘s “Reagan,” bruh. Ultimately, a good portion of his political identity was built on bigotry, son. By and by, I’m just glad that shit like this is coming out now. Frankly, we need to destroy the façade of America, man. All I know is, people like to pretend like this country was/is more forward-thinking than it really is. At the end of the day, a lot of our elected officials maintain the same type of mentality as Reagan. The problem is, they’re just publicly embracing the prejudice now. I mean, just take one glance at Donald Trump, fam. That is all. LC out.
