Trump Is As Much Of An Immigrant As The Freshman Congresswomen

So, here we are again, son. Another day, another preposterous Twitter rant from Donald Trump. Anyway, in a random stream of consciousness, Trump tweeted that progressive Democratic congresswomen should “fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came” before telling the United States how to govern. All I know is, I don’t even know where to begin with the fuckery, man.

Ok, before I continue, I’d like to go through Trump’s family tree. On the real, I feel like this is necessary in order to showcase how ridiculous his comments were. Now, for those who are unaware, Trump’s mother, Mary Anne Trump, was an immigrant. In fact, she was born in Scotland in 1912. In addition, his father, Fred Trump, was a first generation American who was born to German parents. Furthermore, Trump’s first AND third wives were both born outside of this country. With all of that being said, his views on immigrants are fucking perplexing, fam. I mean, his entire lineage is full of “aliens,” bruh.

Moving on, let’s talk about the congresswomen who Trump essentially targeted. First, there’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She was born in The Bronx, New York to Puerto Rican parents. This makes her a first generation American. Next, there’s Rashida Tlaib. She was born in Detroit, Michigan to Palestinian parents. This also makes her a first generation American. Next, there’s Ayanna Pressley. She was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. Now, unless I’m wrong, her folks weren’t even immigrants at all, son (well, they were, but you know what I mean). Finally, there’s Ilhan Omar. Real talk, she’s the only one who was born out of the country, hailing from Somalia. The point is, the ancestry of most of these women has as many foreigners as Trump, man. So, what is the hate really about, fam?

Look, let’s just call a spade a spade, bruh. The truth is, immigrants are only vilified when they’re Black or Brown, son. Keeping it a buck, the motivation that caused Trump to question Barack Obama‘s birthplace is the same motivation that caused him to attack these congresswomen. The fact is, these ladies are just as American as Trump and anybody else who decides to question them. Listen, political disagreements are one thing. However, belittling someone’s patriotism and devaluing their place in this country is completely different, man. The way I see, people of color are always viewed as “invaders,” regardless of our strong ties to this nation.

In the end, I’m not even going to pretend like I’m surprised, fam. Like, I almost skipped this subject entirely, bruh. Hell, water is wet and Donald Trump says racist shit. What’s new, son? Ultimately, 45 showed us who he was a loooooooong time ago, man. At the end of the day, we just need to keep pushing back until we finally push him out, fam. That is all. LC out.

R. Kelly Is Looking At Fed Time

So, let’s just skip the formalities, son. Frankly, R. Kelly is in a world of shit, man. I mean, when the Feds get involved with an investigation, it’s most likely the end of the road for whoever, fam. With that being said, I’m super interested to see how this situation is going to play out, bruh. All in all, if dude is convicted of these crimes, he’s probably going away for a looooong time.

Ok, for those who missed it, Kelly was arrested (again) in Chicago on Thursday night. Now, if we’re being real, he’s no stranger to the authorities, son. However, this scenario is notable because of who picked him up, man. Essentially, Homeland Security and the NYPD teamed up to apprehend Kelly. In any case, once arrested, he was indicted on 13 counts of child pornography, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice. Basically, he got hemmed up for the shit we knew he was doing for decades, fam.

Now, I won’t lie, bruh. Shit, my opinion about Kelly is no secret, son. Hell, I’ve lost count of how many articles I’ve written just shitting on that dude, man. Anyway, I do wonder how this case will be different, fam. Like, Chicago police have tried to take this dude down before, folks. All I know is, if Sparkle‘s niece’s family didn’t make a deal with the Devil, Kelly would’ve been stopped years ago. Moving on, I’d really like to know what evidence the authorities have this time. The way I see it, with the Feds jumping in, they must feel like they can wrap this dude the fuck up, brethren. In my eyes, it’s long overdue, people.

In the end, good luck to R. Kelly, son. Siiiiiiike, I hope they throw that bum under all of the jails, man. Ultimately, his day of reckoning HAS to come, fam. By and by, he’s abused WAY too many girls to keep on skating, bruh. At the end of the day, a (hilarious) convo with Gayle King couldn’t save him, brethren. All I can say is, he better start preparing for those prison talent shows, folks. That is all. LC out.

Comparing Kawhi Leonard To Kevin Durant

So, here we are, son. It’s 9:39 AM EST on July 3rd and it looks like Kawhi Leonard may go to the Los Angeles Lakers. Now, as a New York Knicks fan, I hate everything about this possibility, man. However, as a basketball fan, I’m interested to see how he’d gel with LeBron James and Anthony Davis. In any case, in light of this potential move, I see people trying to compare Leonard to Kevin Durant. All I know is, if Leonard went to the Lakers, it still wouldn’t be anything like Durant’s move to the Golden State Warriors.

Look, when people talk about Durant, they keep confusing the argument, fam. For me, I never judged the fact that he wanted to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder. I mean, given Russell Westbrook‘s playing style, Durant HAD to be frustrated, bruh. Anyway, I never hated on Durant for leaving. In actuality, I criticized him for joining the fucking Warriors, son. Need I remind everyone, the 73-9 Warriors defeated the Durant-led Thunder in the 2016 Western Conference Finals. So, Durant literally joined the team that beat him, man. I’m sorry, but I will always look at that as a sucker move, brethren.

Now, let’s take a look at Leonard. Real talk, homie just had one of the best individual runs in NBA playoff history AND won a title with a team that previously never made it to the Finals. Shit, he legitimately got a ring with Pascal SiakamMarc GasolSerge Ibaka and Fred VanVleet. Listen, all of these guys are good players, but the Toronto Raptors weren’t the squad that everyone picked to win it all. As a matter of fact, most analysts thought the Milwaukee Bucks were the team to beat, son. Needless to say, that shit ain’t happen, man.

The point is, if Leonard joined the Lakers, it wouldn’t be because he couldn’t get it done without a superteam. In addition, the Lakers weren’t some behemoth last year. Hell, they didn’t even make the playoffs, man. All I can say is, that’s a far cry from Durant joining a team that won the most regular season games in history. On the real, I may be a salty Knicks fan, but at least I have the ability to be objective, fam. All in all, coming off of a ring, Leonard can call his own shot, bruh.

In the end, none of this shit changes anything for me, son. Ultimately, the Knicks still suck and I’m seriously contemplating setting the Barclays Center on fire. By and by, this next season is going to be intriguing (and painful) as fuck, man. At the end of the day, if Leonard goes to the Lakers, they BETTER win the title, fam. Like, a team with James, Leonard and Davis would have no fucking excuse, bruh. Frankly, I could be their starting point guard and they’d still probably win. That’s how great those guys are, folks. That is all. LC out.

A Knicks Fan In Physical Pain

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’m fucking devastated right now, son. I mean, being a New York Knicks fan is the most painful shit on Earth, man. Like, year after year after year, we get our hopes up, only to have our proverbial testicles stomped on, fam. With that being said, the start to this year’s free agency is especially egregious, bruh. That fact is, NO top players want to play for our shitty franchise, folks.

Ok, for those who missed it, the Knicks are still the laughingstock of the NBA. Furthermore, we’re getting pissed on by our crosstown rivals. Now, let’s start with the obvious, son. So, both Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving have agreed to play for the Brooklyn Nets. Meaning, despite yearlong reports of them coming to the Knicks, both players said “fuck you” to James Dolan and agreed to go play in the Barclays Center. All in all, our plans for bigtime acquisitions have already gone to shit, man.

Look, to explain how bad this is, allow me to layout the trail of fuckery that has led to this point. First, we traded Kristaps Porziņģis, our franchise player. Essentially, we did this to free up enough cap space to sign two max players (i.e. Durant and Irving). Next, we didn’t get the first pick in the NBA Draft, meaning we missed out on the opportunity to get Zion Williamson. So, we traded our best player, didn’t get the number-one pick AND didn’t get any of the most notable free agents. *Sigh* Why do the basketball gods hate us so fucking much, fam?! For God‘s sake, do they really expect me to be happy with Julius RandleTaj Gibson and Bobby Portis?! Shit, I know they’re good players, but they’re not good enough for all of the shit we’ve gone through, bruh!

Listen, I know there are people who have their reservations about Durant and Irving. Hell, my boy Fabo correctly pointed out that Irving can be a shit-show and Durant’s future health is unknown. However, I was very willing to take that risk, son. Side note, everyone should go listen to my dude’s The Receding Hairlines Podcast. In any case, we’ve already seen Irving be the second-best player on a championship team, man. In addition, if Durant comes back even 85% of the player he used to be, then he’s still better than 99% of the league, fam. Frankly, I’d gladly take that type of production, bruh. The sad part is, Durant wouldn’t even give us a meeting and Dolan didn’t want to give him the max. Basically, we lost off the rip, son.

In the end, I’m fucking devastated, man. Like, my head is legitimately hurting right now, fam. Ultimately, the Knicks are poised to be as inept as we’ve always been. By and by, I don’t think I can do this anymore, bruh. At the end of the day, a sports team shouldn’t control my emotions like this, son. All I can say is, AHHHHHHHH! That’s all I’ve got, brethren. That’s all I’ve fucking got. LC out.

The Toronto Raptors Really Needed To Win Game 5

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, last night’s game between the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors was one of the wildest games I’ve ever seen, man. I mean, the Raptors were right there, fam. Like, riiiiiight there, bruh. Shit, they were three minutes away from their first NBA Championship and they blew it. All I know is, last night’s loss puts them in a tough situation. Yeah, they’re still leading the series, but now ALL of the pressure is on them to pull this off.

Ok, for those who missed it because they hate themselves, Game 5 was crazy, son. First, the momentum seemed to shift in the Warriors’ favor when Kevin Durant decided to play. Hell, on a suspect calf, Durant tried to save his team from elimination. On top of that, he actually started off hot, man. Listen, he hit a couple of threes and it looked like he might turn the tide of this series. Then, in the second quarter, he went down with an Achilles injury. All I know is, that was the LAST thing that I wanted to see, fam.

At that point, it would’ve been easy to assume that the Warriors would crumble. Instead, they maintained their lead until the fourth quarter. From there, Kawhi Leonard decided that enough was enough. Look, he basically went on a double-digit run by himself, bruh. Real talk, when the Raptors jumped to a 103-97 lead with three minutes left, I thought the game was over, son. However, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson would not be denied, man. Basically, they put the team on their backs and squeaked out an improbable win, fam. Now, the Raptors have to try and win the title back in Oakland.

Now, here’s why I think the Raptors are in trouble. First, they’ve already won two games in Oracle Arena this series. With that being said, to get the ring in the next game, they would have to win ANOTHER game in that place. So, folks want me to believe that the Warriors, the team who’s won three of the last four titles, are going to lose three games at home? Bruh, I highly, HIGHLY doubt that. In addition, if the Raptors do lose Game 6, then they’ll be facing another Game 7 at home. All I can say is, that’s waaaaaay too much pressure on a team who’s never won a championship before. Frankly, they’re in danger of becoming the second team to blow a 3-1 lead in the Finals.

In the end, I think the Raptors missed a golden opportunity, son. Now, I’m not saying that they won’t win it all. Ultimately, they could very well close this thing out on Thursday. But, they’re now facing a fire that they didn’t want. Essentially, the defending champs are staring them in the face and daring them to kill them. By and by, we’ll see if these dudes have the mental fortitude to get it done, man. That is all. LC out.

P.S. That Durant injury is terrible, fam. Ok, yes, I have a history of criticizing him. But, I never wanted to see him go down like that, bruh. Keeping it a buck, it doesn’t matter that I want him on my New York Knicks. The fact of the matter is, when he’s healthy, he’s probably the best player in the world, son. All in all, the league is better when he’s killing shit, man. I just hope that the injury doesn’t permanently effect his career, brethren. Good day.

P.P.S. The Raptors fans ain’t shit for cheering when Durant went down. Like, what kinda loser celebrates an injury? By and by, I believe in karma, fam. The way I see it, that bush league shit is probably why their team lost that game, bruh. Ok, bye.

I Don’t Want To Watch ‘When They See Us’

So, I want to take this time to be honest, son. On the real, I haven’t watched Ava DuVernay‘s When They See Us yet. Frankly, my spirit can’t take it, man. Like, the Central Park Five case makes me mad, fam. I mean, REALLY mad, bruh. Shit, my wife damn near had to force me to watch Ken Burns‘ documentary, y’all. The fact is, so many things that minorities fear about the justice system are wrapped up in this case, people. All in all, New York City stole the youth of five innocent men.

Now, before I continue, let me say that I’m not going to explain the entire case here. Hell, that’s what DuVernay’s Netflix series is for, son. However, I just want to touch on some of the shenanigans that caused these young men to lose themselves. First, there are the “confessions.” Real talk, the police department put the fear of God in a group of teenagers, man. The truth is, the cops scared a bunch of Black kids into admitting to a crime they flatly didn’t commit.

From there, the prosecutor, Linda Fairstein, did her best to railroad these young men. Despite the fact their “confessions” didn’t add up, she fucked them. Despite the fact they had alibis, she fucked them. Despite the fact their DNA didn’t match the culprit, the District Attorney‘s office STILL burned them at the stake. To make matters worse, even after Matias Reyes, the real rapist, admitted to the crime, authorities CONTINUE to claim the Central Park Five were responsible. Look, Reyes’ DNA proved he was the offender, yet Fairstein and company REFUSE to acknowledge the truth. Side note, don’t get me started on Donald Trump and all of his racist “bring back the death penalty” bullshit. All I know is, this case makes my soul hurt, fam.

In the end, I do believe everyone should watch this series, bruh. Ultimately, I’ll most likely end up watching it too. By and by, I just need to mentally prepare myself, son. At the end of the day, these are the perils that people of color have to deal with in this country, man. *Sigh* It’s just incredibly draining to constantly go through the nonsense, fam. That is all. LC out.

P.S. New Yorkers have plenty of reasons to shit on Bill de Blasio, but at least he gave the Central Park Five their money, bruh. Keeping it a buck, Michael Bloomberg is permanently on my shit list for fighting that settlement, son. Good day.

EVERYONE Underestimated Andy Ruiz Jr.

So, let’s cut the bullshit, son. On the real, EVERYONE underestimated Andy Ruiz Jr. Like, only the most knowledgeable of boxing insiders gave him a chance to beat Anthony Joshua, man. Shit, I consider myself a connoisseur and my guy Thomas had to be the one to school me on Ruiz’ fast hands, fam. In any case, Ruiz just shocked the world and sent the Heavyweight division into a fucking tailspin.

Ok, for those who missed it, shit got real on Saturday night. Now, Joshua, the boxing pride of England, was set to make his American debut at Madison Square Garden. Originally, his opponent was supposed to be Jarrell Miller. However, as I detailed in a previous post, Miller righteously fucked up the bag, bruh. Anyway, on basically one month’s notice, Ruiz signed on to fight Joshua. All in all, most casual fans thought Ruiz looked like Gabriel Iglesias and didn’t give him a chance, son.

Moving on, the fight turned out toooooootally different than damn near everyone imagined, man. Shit, after being knocked down in the third round, Ruiz began to put them paws on Joshua, fam. I mean, he dropped Joshua twice in the same third round and then twice more in the seventh round. After Joshua began looking confused in his corner, the referee had no choice but to stop the fight, bruh. All I know is, I didn’t expect Joshua to get clanked that many times, son.

Look, to be honest, I always wondered about Joshua’s chin, man. Hell, when he got dropped by an old ass Wladimir Klitschko in 2017, I knew he could be vulnerable, fam. Frankly, that’s why I wanted to see him fight Deontay Wilder. Real talk, I wanted to see if his jaw could withstand Wilder’s right hand. All I can say is, after the slaps he received from Ruiz, he better stay faaaar away from Wilder, bruh. Keeping it a buck, Wilder might put Joshua on permanent hiatus, son.

In the end, I don’t know what to make of the Heavyweight division, man. Ultimately, I’m sure Joshua has a rematch clause with Ruiz. Meaning, he’ll have an opportunity to get his belts back. However, this loss puts a damper on the three-way race between Joshua, Wilder and Tyson Fury. By and by, this is exactly why I hate boxing politics, fam. The way I see it, all of these dudes should’ve fought each other already, bruh. Now, there are more obstacles in the way. *Sigh* Nevertheless, HUGE congrats to Ruiz, son. At the end of the day, there was no luck involved, brethren. The truth is, he plainly whooped Joshua’s ass, people. That is all. LC out.
