China’s Racism Against Black People

*Sigh* The more things change, the more they stay the same, son. I mean, no matter what’s happening around the world, folks still find ways to be racist to Black people. All I know is, China‘s got some cotdamn nerve, man. After infecting the rest of the globe with the coronavirus, Chinese citizens have the gall to harass Black folks. Frankly, I’m absolutely disgusted, fam. The fact is, I’m still surprised that I can be surprised by people’s ignorance, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, African residents are being targeted in Guangzhou, a city in China’s Guangdong Province. Now, the shit started hitting the fan when social media got wind of a racist sign outside of a McDonald’s. For all intents and purposes, Black people were banned from entering the restaurant. Apparently, the assholes in that city believe that Black people are responsible for the spread of the coronavirus. Look, despite the fact that the illness CLEARLY started in Wuhan, the Chinese community is trying to pin it on the African population.

Now, in addition to that asinine sign outside of the McDonald’s, there are numerous stories of Africans being evicted from their homes. *Sigh* I’m at a complete loss for words, son. Seriously, being Black can be fucking tiring, man. Like, as awesome as we are, we’re always subjected to other people’s irrational fears. No matter where we go, losers find ways to put their bullshit on us. Fam, how prejudice does a country have to be to spread a virus and THEN blame it on another group? All in all, fuck anybody who subscribes to this bigotry.

In the end, I don’t know what else to say, bruh. Ultimately, this situation just makes me want to spew a bunch of curse words. Shit, on a recent podcast with Randi B., I spoke out against the unnecessary violence against Asians in this country. All the while, factions of Chinese people are victimizing innocent Africans. *Sigh* People suck, son. People fucking suck, man. That is all. LC out.

My First Gray Hairs

So, yesterday was a humbling experience, son. Look, I always joke about being washed, but I actually felt it yesterday. I mean, I already have the joints of a 60-year-old dude. But, that’s because of my years of basketball, man. On the real, this gray hair shit is for the birds, fam. Frankly, I thought I had more time before my follicles threw in the towel, bruh. All in all, Father Time is trying to run up on the kid, brethren.

Ok, before I continue, let me tell everyone a quick story. So, I first shaved my head bald back in February of 2009. After getting into an argument with my Jamaican barber about where my hairline should be, I said “fuck it,” son. Shit, instead of pretending like my shapeup wasn’t starting to make the McDonald’s arch, I just took it all off, man. Side note, hearing a barber yell “no mon, it don’t grow dere” in patois is a trash ass feeling, folks. Anyway, because of this, I haven’t paid much attention to what my hair does when it starts to grown back in.

In any case, as of late, I’ve been lazy with shaving my head. So, when I hopped out the shower yesterday, I was in for a rude awakening, fam. Now, at first, when I saw the gray, I thought it was dead skin, bruh. Real talk, I tried to scratch the shit off, but it wouldn’t budge. From there, I asked my wife if she could try scratching it off. She looked at my head and was like “babe, that ain’t dead skin, that’s a gray hair. Oh, and you have another one over here.” Wait, what? Word? Listen, it would be one thing if I was “premature gray” or some shit. But, that ain’t it, folks. The boy LC is just getting old, people.

In the end, this post might not matter to anyone else, but it matters to me. Not because I think there’s something wrong, but because it’s a reminder that I need to take better care of myself. Ultimately, I’m not trying to be the bedridden old head or the geriatric senior citizen. Hell, good thing I just bought a bunch of dumbbells for the crib, son. At the end of the day, I’m trying to feel like a fucking superhero when I’m 50, man. With that being said, let me get outta here and lift some weights, fam. Good day. LC out.

P.S. I’d rock the fuck out of a gray beard, though. Let’s make that happen, Father Time! That is all.

Wendy’s Got The Sauce

Now, before I get started, I want to give a shout-out to my boy Vince Booker. He’s the one who put me on to the swagness that is the Wendy’s We Beefin? mixtape. Side note, he also hosts a podcast called The Book of Huey and I did an episode last month. In any case, I’m not sure who runs the marketing department at Wendy’s, but that person deserves TWO raises, son! I mean, this mixtape is legitimately hard, man! From the beats to the rhymes, Wendy’s is going harder at McDonald’s and Burger King than rappers be going at each other, fam.

Ok, so, when it comes to grading the mixtape, let’s start with the beats, bruh. Now, I have no idea who made these tracks, son. However; they BANG, man! Look, who doesn’t love a good 808, fam? Shit, I know I do. Real talk, they just make everything sound awesome, folks. With that being said, the instrumentals served as the perfect backdrop for Wendy’s to get these bars off. All I can say is, McDonald’s and Burger King weren’t the only restaurants to catch this heat, people. From what I can tell, I also hear references to Wingstop and Hardee’s.

All in all, McDonald’s got the brunt of the fire, son. On the real, Wendy’s saved their best bars for Ronald McDonald, man. Hell, when I heard that “you number one? That’s a joke. Why yo’ ice cream machine always broke?” line, I legit laughed out loud, fam. When I heard that “but you hide from funk, that’s prolly why you go paint your face” bar, I scrunched my face, bruh. Listen, Wendy’s out here dissing competitors the way I wish some of these rappers would. Look, Drake and Kendrick Lamar have been dancing around each other for years, people. Frankly, they need to follow Wendy’s and just get to the shits, folks.

In the end, big ups to Wendy’s for the fire tweets and the fire mixtape, son. Ultimately, they’re the pettiest of the petty, man. By and by, everyone can listen to all of the songs on their mixtape below. At the end of the day, I’m actually upset that I didn’t make the “4 for 4$” beat, fam. That is all. LC out.
