I Don’t Want Cops Shot Either

So, to the best of my ability, I’m going to try and keep this post short today. Yeah, I say that all of the time, but I “mean it” right now. In any case, I really hate the trend that happens in this country. Black and Brown people describe systemic mistreatment by law enforcement, our cries fall on deaf ears, some loser takes unnecessary action against unassuming officers and the national conversation goes back to ground zero. All in all, I’m tired of the cycle, son. The way I see it, the dialogue isn’t black and white. There is a grey area, man. Frankly, I don’t want cops shot either.

Ok, for those who are living under a rock, some wild shit went down in Los Angeles this past Saturday. Essentially, some random dude just walked up to a police car in Compton and shot two cops from the passenger side. No warning, no provocation, nothing. Just opened fire out of nowhere. Luckily, both officers are expected to survive after coming out of surgery. Now, I won’t lie, fam. On the real, this situation has caused an interesting schism on social media. One side sees how troubling incidents like these are. Another side is celebrating violence against officers. All I know is, the latter is a dangerous ideal to embrace, bruh.

Look, I know what some people may be thinking. Yes, it’s EXTREMELY disheartening to see law enforcement CONSTANTLY get away with murder. In that sense, it’s natural to desire retribution and retaliation. Especially since we can’t depend on the law to protect us from the law. But, everyone needs to see the bigger picture, son. I mean, just look at how this always plays out. Anytime we make some headway with depicting our pain, some idiot pulls a stunt like this and erases any chance of change. Instead of seeing the humanity in innocent minorities, detractors just use a situation like this shooting to ignore our narrative. The fact is, it’s fucking counterproductive, man.

Like, what do we really want, fam? Do we want the authorities to be held accountable for their actions or do we want to go to war with the cops? Seriously, I want to know. I’m all about the liberation of my people, but I’m also a proponent of strategy. Just bucking off on the police is NOT a recipe for success, bruh. Shit, motherfuckers like Donald Trump can’t WAIT to send the National Guard and the Army into our communities, son. All I can say is, the little handguns and semiautomatic rifles we have ain’t gonna do shit against tanks and drones, man.

Listen, maybe I’m oversimplifying this, but the solution is clear to me: officers need to feel the pain for committing murder. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s A LOT easier said that done, brethren. But, just hear me out. Take Breonna Taylor‘s case, for example. Word is, the city just settled with her family for $12 million. Now, just imagine that the money had to come out of the guilty officers’ pensions. I guarantee that cops would think twice before pulling these triggers. Imagine if more than 1% of officers were actually convicted of murder. I guarantee they’d think twice before pulling these triggers. The truth is, they’re so brazen with their misconduct because they know that NOTHING will happen to them. At the end of the day, REAL consequence will beget an adjustment in behavior.

In the end, I’m sure that there are a number of people out there who disagree with me. Ultimately, everyone is entitled to their opinion. By and by, I’m not the guy who doesn’t see the value in protection. Hell, I really wish that New York would loosen their gun laws, but that’s another story. However, I’m not down with just recklessly shooting cops and thinking it’s going to have a position outcome. If anything, it takes away from our REAL message and puts MORE minorities in harm’s way. *Sigh* All of this is just exhausting, fam. Fucking exhausting. That is all. LC out.

Pastor Mark Burns: The Real Joanne The Scammer

Listen, I can’t fully explain to everyone how much joy I get out of watching stupid people crash and burn. When an imbecile gets caught out there in a flowerbed of nonsense, I’m absolutely positive an angel receives its wings. With that being said, I’d like to personally thank Pastor Mark Burns for reaching the final level of sideshow clown. Now that his fraudulent history has been exposed for the world to see, hopefully this means the public won’t have to see his cartoonish face any longer.

Before I continue, if anyone out there is unfamiliar with Joanne The Scammer, do the world a favor and look her up. As always, Google is everybody’s best friend and will gladly display the hilarity that ensues when she’s on the screen. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy beating up an ex-lover’s new significant other and a good credit card scam? With that being said, thank you, Joanne, for showing us the ways of the Jedi when it comes to being messy and petty.

Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, it’s incredibly funny seeing Mark Burns embrace all of Joanne’s philosophies. Side note, with all of the tomfoolery he’s gotten himself into, I refuse to call Burns a pastor anymore. He doesn’t deserve that distinction, son. In any case, Burns’ claim to fame is making a fool of himself in support of Donald Trump. My first encounter with him came during the Republican National Convention. This dude took the stage and literally prayed for Jesus to defeat Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party. Since then, he’s been on a media tour, doing interviews and sharing racist cartoons of Hillary. However; just when I thought I’d have to break my television in order to escape the madness, Burns completely imploded on CNN.

During an interview with Victor Blackwell, all of Burns’ lies came to the forefront. By now, I already knew he got busted for lying about being a member of the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. Come to find out, that is the least of this man’s fairy tales. In addition to his other fibs, this guy lied about graduating from North Greenville University AND lied about serving six years in the Army Reserve. In actuality, he attended the aforementioned school for one semester and spent a brief amount of time in the National Guard. Look, this dummy can’t be serious, man! Did he not realize his colorful imagination would be exposed? That’s like me saying I have a hit record in Austria like that can’t be fact checked, man. I mean, if someone is going to fabricate their life, at least do it in a way that can’t be easily debunked, son. Now, Burns is looking like the idiot I always knew he was.

In the end, I can’t even say I’m surprised, man. This is just another illustration of the comical campaign Trump has run. Trump’s presidential bid has been nothing but a bucket of Forrest Gump logic. Wait, just call him Forrest Trump, bruh! That’s how stupid this entire experience has been, son. I guess we can now use Mark Burns as another example of Trump’s profound ineptitude. Good day.
