Mollie Tibbetts’ Murder Isn’t About Immigration

Keeping it a buck, situations like this is why I hate politics, son. I mean, elected officials will use ANY tragedy to further their agenda, man. Now, in the case of Mollie Tibbetts, her murder has already been politicized, fam. Like, instead of focusing on the tragedy of her death, politicians are using her untimely end to bolster their own arguments. All in all, I don’t want to hear shit about immigration, bruh. Frankly, Tibbetts’ death had NOTHING to do undocumented individuals.

Ok, for those who are unaware, Mollie Tibbetts was murdered in horrible fashion. So, back in July, Tibbetts, a 20-year-old student at the University of Iowa, disappeared after an evening run. Now, up until this past Tuesday, no one knew what happened to her. All of this changed after a body was found, with stab wounds littered all over. As of right now, Cristhian Bahena Rivera, a 24-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico, confessed to the crime. Apparently, Tibbetts rebuked his advances and he killed her.

Now, based on the fact that Rivera is from Mexico, immigration haters couldn’t wait to latch onto this story. Donald Trump, Fox News and loads of conservative pundits used this tragedy as an example of why we need new laws and the border wall. Side note, I never thought I’d give Geraldo Rivera props. But, shout-out to him for calling Fox News out on their skewed coverage of this case. Fuck him otherwise, son. In any case, while erroneously attributing Tibbetts’ death to immigration, folks are missing the real factor here: violence against women.

Look, it goes without saying that women are in danger in this country. Day after day, week after week, women are attacked by men for a myriad of bullshit reasons. Real talk, Rivera killed Tibbetts because she didn’t give him what he wanted. Not because he’s from Mexico, man. On the real, this immigration narrative is distracting from the fact that something needs to be done about men’s behavior towards women. I mean, ain’t that what the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements are about, fam? Listen, this is a golden opportunity to teach dudes how to be better. Instead, we’d rather bury this scenario in politics.

In the end, fuck agendas, bruh. Ultimately, all of these false narratives keep us from making any real progress, son. By and by, I want to say Rest In Peace to Mollie Tibbetts. At the end of the day, no one deserves to die like that, man. No one. That is all. LC out.

What Is The Point Of The Electoral College?

To begin, I know exactly what the point of the Electoral College is. However; as this recent election, along with the 2000 George W. BushAl Gore race, has shown us, this system is fucking bullshit, man! As it currently stands, Hillary Clinton has amassed 62.8 million votes across the country. In comparison, Donald Trump has pulled in 61.5 million total votes. Now, despite securing well over a million more votes than Trump, Clinton somehow lost the election by 74 projected electoral votes (306 to 232). Based on this result, on December 19th, the actual Electoral College is supposed to vote and confirm Trump’s presidency. So, let me get this straight, son. This woman could literally have a million MORE people on her side and still get trounced in the race? If that ain’t a sign that the Electoral College needs to go, we all must be wrong about simple mathematics, man.

Now, for those who don’t understand the Electoral College, I’ll try to give a little bit of background. I’m not going to go balls deep into the issue, but I’d like to give some insight on its purpose. So, the idea is, the Senate, the House of Representatives and three additional electors from Washington, D.C. vote for who will ultimately become the President and the Vice President. The way this vote works, all states, except for Maine and Nebraska, vote in a “winner-take-all” manner. Meaning, if a candidate has the most general election votes in a particular state, the electors from that state give all of their votes to that candidate. In addition, the number of electors per state depends on the population of that state. This is why states like New York, California, Florida and Texas have a shit-ton of electors.

With all of that being said, this system is fucking broken, son! First, the founding fathers put this system in place because they did NOT want the popular vote to choose the president. That’s a major red flag, man. Way to circumvent the will of the people, douchebags! Second, this system gives way too much power to “swing states.” Every four years, we can basically guess how most of the country will behave. California will most likely be a blue state, while Texas will most likely be a red state. Meaning, places like fucking Ohio and Iowa ultimately have the upper hand on who will win the election. Look, son, maybe it’s just me, but a couple of random states shouldn’t have that much fucking influence. If the overall country is leaning towards a particular candidate, why should we all have to suffer because a few states in the Midwest decided to do some fuck shit? It doesn’t make any sense, man! More Americans wanted Clinton as our president, bro. I don’t give a flying fuck about what people in Michigan are thinking. These swing states ruined it for all of us, son!

Ultimately, I could keep going with my Electoral College hate fest. However; I should probably get back to work. I need to make sure I acquire as much funds as possible, son. I damn sure ain’t gonna be broke during the revolution, bro. All I know is, Donald Trump ain’t my president, man. Tell his supporters to come and get me. Good day.

P.S. It’s funny, as in not funny, how Trump now praises the Electoral College after calling it a disaster back in 2012. I guess it’s only “genius” when it benefits him instead of a Black man. That is all.
