What’s good, brethren? On this episode, Randi B. and I were back on Facebook Live talking about the Republican National Convention, the NBA boycott and Kyle Rittenhouse. It evolved into a conversation that included Nikki Haley, Daniel Cameron, Jacob Blake, the new March on Washington and DNA testing. 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 won’t lie, son. On the real, I did something that I said I’d never do again: I watched the shooting of another Black person by the police. *Sigh* What the fuck, son? Like, honestly, what the entire fuck, man?! I mean, this Jacob Blake situation is beyond belief, fam. All I know is, our rage means nothing if these cowards aren’t held accountable for their actions.
Ok, for those who are unaware, yet another Black person has suffered harm at the hands of law enforcement. Now, over in Kenosha, Wisconsin, witnesses say that Blake, a 29-year-old father of three, was trying to break up an argument between two women. However, instead of being thanked for his seeming attempt at being a peacemaker, Blake was instead rewarded with seven shots to his back. Even worse, he was violated with his three sons watching from his car. Real talk, I’m at an absolute loss for words, bruh.
Now, as of right now, Blake has thankfully managed to survived. According to reports, he’s in stable condition, despite the rumors that he may be paralyzed. *Sigh* If that’s the case, yeah it’s great that he’s alive, but what kind of standard of living is this, son? For God‘s sake, why do we always end up in the same fucking spot, man? People have been pissed ALL of 2020 and NOTHING has changed, fam. Why? Because these motherfuckers never get in trouble for anything!
Look, maybe I’m oversimplifying everything, but the answer is simple to me: murderers and attempted murderers need to go to fucking prison. Now, of course we can have substantive debates about updating our laws. All of that is factual, bruh. But, some of the laws we currently have work, son. Like, sending a motherfucker to prison if he/she wrongfully shoots someone. Shit, that law already exists, man. The fact of the matter is, police are NEVER held to the same standard of laws they’re SUPPOSED to uphold. All in all, it’s fucking disgusting, fam.
In the end, all prayers to Jacob Blake and his family. Ultimately, I really hope that he survives his ordeal. By and by, I also hope that justice is done for him. Then again, hope alone isn’t enough, brethren. So, we can all start by calling the Kenosha City Attorney at (262) 653-4170, the Kenosha Mayor at (262) 653-4000, the Kenosha Police Non-Emergency Line at (262) 656-1234 and the Wisconsin Department of Justice at (608) 266-1221. The way I see it, heads need to roll for this shit. Let’s get this done, folks. That is all. LC out.
