Who At H&M Needs To Catch These Hands?

So, I’m just going to get straight to the point, son. Look, if I have to explain to anyone why a Black child wearing a “monkey” hoodie is wrong, then they should stop reading this. I mean, there are multiple levels to why this is fuckery at the highest level, man. In any case, the real issue is, I don’t know who deserves to catch these hands first: H&M or that kid’s parents.

Ok, before I continue talking about the words on the hoodie, let me talk about the hoodie, fam. Now, in the wake of Trayvon Martin, there was a concerted effort to criminalize Black people who wore hoodies. Hell, just ask Hillary Clinton and Geraldo Rivera, bruh. First, Clinton literally said that “the sight of a young Black man in a hoodie still evokes a twinge of fear.” On top of that, Rivera urged Black and Hispanic parents to deter their children from wearing hoodies. According to his logic, the hoodie got Martin killed by George Zimmerman.

Listen, if a hoodie is that detrimental to a Black person’s image, why would H&M dress a young Black boy in one? With that being said, let’s talk about the words ON the hoodie now. “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle?” Really? REALLY?! THAT’S the slogan that H&M thought was appropriate for their ad?! Good fucking Lord, son, I can’t believe the level of stupidity here! Look, like I said before, I shouldn’t even have to explain why comparing Black people to monkeys is a bad look, man. Shit, just look at the history of Western Civilization, fam!

My thing is, who okayed this shit, bruh? Real talk, advertising and marketing are substantial departments, son. Are we saying that NO ONE saw the issue here before this tomfoolery went up? NO ONE understood the possible ramifications of this? Furthermore, where the fuck were this kid’s parents? They were cool with their son modeling this type of nonsense? On the real, ain’t no amount of money worth my child’s self-esteem and respect, man. Keeping it a buck, if this were my kid, someone at H&M would have to catch this rear naked choke, fam.

In the end, everyone needs to be called out for this shit, bruh. Ultimately, this kid is still young and probably doesn’t understand the meaning behind his exploitation. By and by, I’m glad people like The Weeknd are chucking the deuces to stupid ass H&M. Clearly, they don’t give a flying fuck about how they present people from different cultures. All I know is, someone still needs to get this ass-whooping, son. That is all. LC out.


I Wish Dylann Roof The Absolute Worst

So, I, like many others, was always taught growing up to never wish ill on someone. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” so on and so forth. However; some people deserve to have bad shit happen to them. Dylann Roof is one of those people, man. Keeping it a buck, I have nothing positive to say about that piece of shit and I genuinely, GENUINELY hope his time in prison is brutal.

Now, at this point, I shouldn’t have to tell everyone what this subhuman did. Anyone who isn’t aware of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church massacre that happened in South Carolina must not care about people. In any case, Roof’s trial just wrapped up and he was found guilty on all counts. As of right now, he’s in the sentencing phase.

To be clear, his conviction is not why I’m writing this. Nah, what he said at his death penalty trial made my fucking blood boil, son. Not only did he fail to apologize for killing nine innocent people, but he also made some bullshit speech about why he “had” to do what he did. In his eyes, his deed was some sort of ridiculous retribution for all of the “innocent White children” who have to live in this country and all of the “innocent White people” killed by the “lower race.” He continued by saying he represented himself in court because he didn’t want his lawyers to question his mental stability. Apparently, there’s nothing wrong with this asshole.

*Sigh* I don’t even know where to start, man. Ok, let’s start with the fact that 84% of White people are killed by other White people. That stat comes directly from the FBI, man. So, who are all of these White people being killed by the “lower race?” This fucking devil based his entire rampage on a theory that doesn’t even fucking exist, man. This is no better than Donald Trump and Ann Coulter calling all Latinos “rapists” and the overall Islamophobia being perpetuated in this country. A misguided fear of the “other” is leading people to commit heinous crimes against innocent folks. There are never any facts to bolster a bigot’s argument, yet they feel like it’s their right to harm people who don’t look, act or believe like them. It’s absolutely fucking disgusting, man.

Ultimately, I’m one of the few people who doesn’t believe in the death penalty. Not because I think it’s wrong, but because I think life in prison is worse. I want Dylann Roof to spend the rest of his natural life in general population. I don’t want him to be protected from any of the other inmates. Let’s see how long he lacks remorse when his cellmates lack remorse for him. Let’s see how long he thinks he’s tough when he encounters some really tough people. Death is the easy way out for cowards like him. He needs to continually suffer until he understands the gravity of what he’s done. And even then, he should suffer some more. I’m out.

I’m Done With Kanye West

That’s it. I’m done, man. I’m over Kanye West and his constant brand of bullshit. As a DIEHARD fan, I’ve tried and tried and tried to look past his frequent barrage of nonsense. However; enough is enough, son! During his ten millionth rant last night in San Jose, Kanye told concertgoers that not only did he forgo voting, but if he did, he would’ve voted for Donald Trump. All I know is, for me, the artist I’ve supported all of these years is officially gone. Get this man the fuck outta here, son!

*Sigh* Where do I even start, man? So, during his recent concert, Kanye went on one of his customary rants and spoke about the recent presidential election. First, he emphasized the fact he didn’t vote. This is problem number one. For a man who once rhymed that his mother was arrested for a sit-in “at the tender age of six,” his decision to eschew voting is an absolute slap in her face. Side note, Rest In Peace to Donda West.

Now, the same man who spent countless songs on The College Dropout and Late Registration addressing systemic issues decided to avoid using his voice for something other than promoting clothes with holes in them. Honestly, it’s fucking disgusting, man. In my eyes, I don’t want to hear anyone talk about solving societal ills if they don’t engage with the individuals who govern our cities and states. That same message applies to Colin Kaepernick and his non-voting ass too!

Moving on, just when we thought that hot take was the extent of his fuckery, he then chose to offer up praise to our orange-faced President-elect. According to Kanye, he admires Trump’s “non-political” way of speaking and considers it a “futuristic” form of communication. In addition, he talked about how people just assumed he was a Democrat and how his friends advised him not to mention the fact he loved Trump’s “approach” to the debates.

Gosh, Kanye, what’s wrong with us, huh? Of COURSE a man who once proclaimed that George W. Bush didn’t care about Black people would embrace a man who’s shitted on us, Hispanics, Muslims, women and disabled people. Of COURSE a man who wrote songs like “All Falls Down” and “Crack Music” would openly support a divisive human being who used his hometown of Chicago as an example of why we need more “law and order.” We must be the crazy ones, right?

I mean, is this clown fucking serious, man?! Has he been a Kardashian for that long now? Has he forgotten that even if he’s in a Benz, he’s still a “nigga in a coupe”? Who the fuck is this man now?! I no longer see ANY shades of the dude who was once a champion of the people. I guess he’s too rich now to remember where he came from. That’s fine, because White America can have him now. I completely wash my hands of his persistent coonery.

In the end, I’m over all of the fuck shit, man. All of it! I have nothing else to say today. Fuck Kanye West, son! Fuck ’em! Good day.

No, This Isn’t Politics As Usual

So, this is another one of those posts where I need to talk to my fellow Black people. Frankly, I’m seeing a disturbing trend among some members of my community. The idea that the election of Donald Trump is just “politics as usual” is not only flippantly dismissive, but also very inaccurate. While bigotry of all forms has always been embedded in the fabric of our country, never before has someone so OPENLY embraced EVERY kind of hatred and actually made it to the most powerful seat in the world.

Now, at this point, I’m not going to run down every despicable thing Trump has ever said and done. I mean, I’ve already covered enough of that on this blog. However; I do want to reiterate a couple of key items. When we look at Trump, we’re looking at man who’s bragged about sexual assault, called the majority of Hispanics rapists and criminals, called more for “law and order” in response to the police killings of unarmed Black people, berated a Gold Star family, mocked a disabled reporter, asked to use nuclear weapons more than once and proposed a ban on Muslims. Please note, all of that happened within the last 18 months alone, son.

Keeping it all of the way real, that last paragraph doesn’t even include his history of demanding the execution of the Central Park Five in 1989, failing to pay federal taxes since I was in elementary school and fishing to discredit President Obama‘s citizenship for half a decade. Now, in case that’s not scary enough, this same man is now in control of Congress and the Supreme Court. So, no, this isn’t just politics as usual, man. This country was built on prejudice, but Trump’s lack of decorum and INCREDIBLE lack of basic intelligence is unprecedented, son.

Honestly, I could probably handle a bigot, son. However; a bigot who’s completely unaware of how his job actually works is fucking frightening, man. Anyone who doesn’t understand that is truly disconnected from what’s happening in this country. Yeah, there have been openly racist candidates before, like George Wallace and Barry Goldwater, but neither one of those clowns actually made it to the White House, man. Stop the shenanigans, son.

Ultimately, I don’t want to hear shit from anyone who doesn’t vote or participate in our political landscape. As I’ve stated before, even if people don’t completely see the value of presidential elections, if those same folks aren’t involved in down ballot or local elections, they are part of the fucking problem. Here’s an example: in New York City, our major chooses the police commissioner. The commissioner then, in turn, governs how the police department will engage with the community. I don’t want to hear anyone complain about changing the laws and punishments surrounding police brutality if they have no voting influence on the people who enact those policies. Enough of the fucking excuses, man! Let’s get to work! Good day.

P.S. Trump’s election has already caused White people to pretend like it’s the 1960s all over again. Just take a look at a couple of the racially-motivated attacks that have occurred since Tuesday. Look, I’ve said it before, man. Bigots can run up on me if they want to, but they’re going to catch this fade, son. My hand speed is impeccable, bro. I ain’t nonviolent. That is all.

Thank You, America

Thank you, America. Thank you for hating Hispanics. Thank you for hating Muslims. Thank you for hating Black people. Thank you for hating women. Thank you for hating the LGBTQ community. Thank you for hating disabled people. Thank you for hating every group of individuals Donald Trump has shitted on over the course of this election. America, you have emphatically shown us what type of despicable country you are and what you actually value: bigotry across all platforms. Bravo, America! Fucking bravo!

At this point, I could write two sentences or I could write an entire dissertation. I’m truly fucking confused by what happened last night. People, please tell me I’m dreaming. Please tell me Trump isn’t really the next president of our country. Please tell me we didn’t let an overwhelming wave of hate, irrational fear and stupidity guide the future of our nation. Look, I’m absolutely APPALLED by the people of this country. I just hope we’re all ready for a strong presence of racism, sexism, xenophobia, religious persecution and tax breaks for the rich. We’ve already seen bigots become way more emboldened as Trump gained power, and with him going to the Oval Office, I don’t see that weakening any time soon. When we add up a Republican presidency, Senate, House, and most likely, Supreme Court, that equals four years of unadulterated HELL!

In the end, I have nothing else to say, son. Nothing at all, man. All I know is, I’m not writing shit for the rest of this week, possibly longer. I’m done. Fucking done here. As my fiancée always says, “this country isn’t for us.” In this case, the “us” is literally EVERY disenfranchised group. Goodbye.

P.S. I don’t want to hear SHIT from anyone who didn’t vote or voted for a third-party candidate. They, along with a higher turnout of uneducated White voters, allowed this nonsense to happen. Thanks for absolutely nothing, y’all.

Shout-out To All Of My ‘Bad Hombres’

So, the debate, huh? They’re all finally over, huh? Thank the Lord, son. I couldn’t take one more of these outrageous debacles. I mean, if I really wanted to have my intelligence insulted, I’d go argue with a New England Patriots fan about the “Tuck Rule.” Side note, Pats fans, let’s cut the bullshit, man. Tom Brady fumbled the ball in that game. We all saw it on camera, bro. In any case, I’ve officially had enough of this presidential election. I’m tired of commenting on it and I’m tired of seeing the faces of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. With that being said, good ol’ Trump left us all with one last gem: “bad hombres.”

Look, if anyone pays any attention to the news today, all of the pundits are on fire about a different Trump comment. Essentially, the man said he can’t guarantee that he’ll accept the outcome of the election if he loses. That statement is unprecedented because no other candidate has ever questioned the voting process this much BEFORE people went to the polls. In my eyes, he’s looking for an excuse for his inevitable loss. At this point, he’s behind is damn near every poll, son. So, instead of chalking his failure up to his ridiculous campaign, he’d rather point fingers and make nefarious allegations about voter fraud. Please note, these theories have been debunked by nearly everyone with a brain.

Now, while his stance about voting practices is the talk of the town, I’d rather speak about his “bad hombres” statement. Man, this dude just refuses to leave Hispanics alone, bro. Since the beginning of his campaign, he’s blamed Mexicans and other Hispanics for basically all of the crime going on in this country. Either they’re rapists, drug dealers or just crooked people. Yet and still, he somehow believes Hispanics will vote for him in a few weeks. I really don’t understand how that man thinks, son. He throws them under the bus EVERY chance he gets and still wants them to support him. That’s like me repeatedly kicking someone in the nuts and then looking for them to give me a job referral. It doesn’t work that way, bro. Not at all.

Ultimately, the “bad hombres” comment was the pinnacle of condescending rhetoric. Not only is he making unwarranted accusations about an ENTIRE group of people, but he’s mocking their language in the process. I mean, I can’t even properly quantify how fucked up that is, man. That’s like a cop saying “it’s lit” right before putting five bullets in my ass. This dude is a straight up cartoon character, but none of us find him funny. Wait, that’s probably why he’s always orange, man. He really is playing the part of a clown, son. All in all, I’m just glad this election cycle is nearly over. Now, we all need to make sure we do our part to keep this man FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR away from the Oval Office. Good day.
