I’m Done With Kanye West

That’s it. I’m done, man. I’m over Kanye West and his constant brand of bullshit. As a DIEHARD fan, I’ve tried and tried and tried to look past his frequent barrage of nonsense. However; enough is enough, son! During his ten millionth rant last night in San Jose, Kanye told concertgoers that not only did he forgo voting, but if he did, he would’ve voted for Donald Trump. All I know is, for me, the artist I’ve supported all of these years is officially gone. Get this man the fuck outta here, son!

*Sigh* Where do I even start, man? So, during his recent concert, Kanye went on one of his customary rants and spoke about the recent presidential election. First, he emphasized the fact he didn’t vote. This is problem number one. For a man who once rhymed that his mother was arrested for a sit-in “at the tender age of six,” his decision to eschew voting is an absolute slap in her face. Side note, Rest In Peace to Donda West.

Now, the same man who spent countless songs on The College Dropout and Late Registration addressing systemic issues decided to avoid using his voice for something other than promoting clothes with holes in them. Honestly, it’s fucking disgusting, man. In my eyes, I don’t want to hear anyone talk about solving societal ills if they don’t engage with the individuals who govern our cities and states. That same message applies to Colin Kaepernick and his non-voting ass too!

Moving on, just when we thought that hot take was the extent of his fuckery, he then chose to offer up praise to our orange-faced President-elect. According to Kanye, he admires Trump’s “non-political” way of speaking and considers it a “futuristic” form of communication. In addition, he talked about how people just assumed he was a Democrat and how his friends advised him not to mention the fact he loved Trump’s “approach” to the debates.

Gosh, Kanye, what’s wrong with us, huh? Of COURSE a man who once proclaimed that George W. Bush didn’t care about Black people would embrace a man who’s shitted on us, Hispanics, Muslims, women and disabled people. Of COURSE a man who wrote songs like “All Falls Down” and “Crack Music” would openly support a divisive human being who used his hometown of Chicago as an example of why we need more “law and order.” We must be the crazy ones, right?

I mean, is this clown fucking serious, man?! Has he been a Kardashian for that long now? Has he forgotten that even if he’s in a Benz, he’s still a “nigga in a coupe”? Who the fuck is this man now?! I no longer see ANY shades of the dude who was once a champion of the people. I guess he’s too rich now to remember where he came from. That’s fine, because White America can have him now. I completely wash my hands of his persistent coonery.

In the end, I’m over all of the fuck shit, man. All of it! I have nothing else to say today. Fuck Kanye West, son! Fuck ’em! Good day.

NFL: Mad At Colin Kaepernick; Silent About Josh Brown

Now, despite being a diehard New York Giants fan, I’m PISSED today, man. The hypocrisy of the National Football League knows no bounds, son. It’s amazing how Colin Kaepernick could be blasted by any and everyone, but real scumbags like Josh Brown barely get any attention. Once again, the NFL proves they simply do NOT care about the nefarious activities of their players.

So, here’s what has me all riled up this morning. Apparently, Brown is a very well known proponent of violence against women. In journals, emails to his wife and even letters to his friends, he’s spoken openly about the physical and emotional violence he’s inflicted on his wife. He’s referred to himself as “God,” called his wife his “slave” and even mentioned being a sexual deviant. Here’s the kicker: the Giants knew about ALL of this and still re-signed him to a two-year contract during the offseason. However; now that all of the fuckery is coming out, the team and the NFL need to “investigate” the story.

Off the rip, I have several issues with this entire situation, man. First, let me start by discussing the coach of my team: Ben McAdoo. When asked about Brown, McAdoo said “we’re not going to turn our back on Josh. He’s a teammate. He’s a guy that we’re hoping makes strides.” Now, this is the same man who said he would be “disappointed” if any of his players “[pulled] a Kaepernick” back in August. So, let me get this straight, McAdoo. It’s ok to sympathize with a man who terrorizes his wife, but something is wrong with a man who’s trying to bring awareness to racial discrimination? Are these people fucking kidding me, man?! It’s mind-boggling how players can get away with violence, drugs and even calling people “niggers,” but taking a knee is seemingly an unforgivable offense. Like, my body is actually aching because I’m so mad right now.

In the end, let me make myself perfectly clear. If anyone had something to say about Kaepernick, but have remained mum on Josh Brown, Greg Hardy or Ben Roethlisberger, jump off of the nearest bridge. Seriously, the world doesn’t need people like that. Hell, even Ben had some bullshit to say about Kaepernick. Look, anyone who’s been accused of sexual assault more than once needs to shut the fuckity-fuck up, son. Apparently, women can be targets, but God forbid we speak about empowering a historically oppressed group of people. Fuck off, son!

Stop Telling Black People When To Protest!

Honestly, there’s really no need to mince words here, son. I truly, truly hate when people tell Black people when it’s appropriate to protest. For this particular post, I’ m not even talking about the individuals who think we don’t have a right to protest at all. Nah, this time around, I’m speaking to the condescending fools who believe they have the moral authority to tell us when/what we have the right to feel. In my eyes, these folks can take their opinions and shove it.

First, I’d like to thank Kate Upton for inspiring this post. While she isn’t the first idiot to express this sentiment, she’s the one I’m going to use to destroy this faulty logic. After Colin Kaepernick took his stand, excuse me his sit, excuse me his kneel, against police brutality and racial injustice, more athletes have started to follow suit. However; according to Upton, while we have the “right” to protest, for the “120 seconds” during the national anthem, we should basically shut up and respect the flag/military. Now, pardon me, but since when does a model, or anyone for that matter, decide when minorities should be upset about our treatment in this country? Even though I’ve already spoken about this in a previous post, I think we need to delve deeper into why bringing up the military is ridiculous when talking about our protest methods.

Now, before I continue, let me start my thesis with the national anthem itself. The Star-Spangled Banner was written by a man named Francis Scott Key. Now, if anyone does their Google’s, they’ll notice that Key was not only a slave owner, but an active anti-abolitionist. So, for the dummies out there, the man who wrote the song their telling us to respect actually enslaved our ancestors. HE ENSLAVED OUR ANCESTORS, MAN! Why on Earth should we respect a song that was written by someone who literally fought against our freedom? That’s bar none the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard in my entire life, man. Basically, when he penned the words “land of the free and the home of the brave,” he DEFINITELY wasn’t talking about us, son. I think it’s truly amazing how everyone is told to “never forget” certain historical atrocities, but others that don’t fit a particular agenda or narrative are completely glossed over. Miss me with all of that bullshit, son. THIS is American history too, bitch! Own it!

Moving on, let’s talk about this “respect for the military” everyone loves to bring up. For just one second, can we stop pretending like the military is beyond reproach? Now, if anyone thinks I’m crossing the line with that statement, I’d suggest looking up the “mustard gas experiments” of World War II. That’s right, son, minorities were used as guinea pigs to determine the effects of mustard gas on intended targets. So, even in our service of this God-forsaken country, we’re treated like subhuman, second-class citizens. With that being said, don’t talk to me about what people have done for our freedom. In addition, if all of these naysayers care so much about the troops, why don’t they do more to help veterans suffering from physical disabilities, mental health issues and poverty? If singing the anthem is a detractor’s only show of support, they might as well sit down and shut the fuck of the highest shut the fucks up.

In the end, the fact of the matter is, people don’t want us to protest at all. When we march, we’re judged. When we speak, we’re judged. When we write, we’re judged. When we sit, we’re judged. There’s literally nothing we can do that’s acceptable in the eyes of our oppressors. But guess what, losers? We’re not going to stop demonstrating just because it makes certain people uncomfortable. For anyone who feels uneasy, good. This is only the beginning, man. There’s a movement happening here and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop it. Good day. No, GREAT day.

The Argument Against Colin Kaepernick

Man, oh man, what has Colin Kaepernick gotten himself into, son? Who would’ve thought the act of sitting down would get a man in so much trouble? After not standing for the National Anthem during a preseason game this past Friday, Kaepernick unleashed the ire of damn near everyone with a platform to speak. While people are allowed to have their opinions, I can’t help but be confused by the stance some individuals have taken. Sooooooo, since I also have my own platform to speak, I’m here to debunk some of the half-baked arguments against Colin Kaepernick.

Now, let me begin by saying, there’s no such thing as someone who’s “too rich” to acknowledge social and racial injustice. That seems to be a prevalent argument circulating around in response to Kaepernick’s actions. Apparently, when a person is not living in poverty and despair, they’re not allowed to talk about anything real. So, to be clear, is money supposed to be the great equalizer? If a small fraction of a particular racial group is afforded the opportunity to join the “one percent,” are they no longer allowed to shed light on prejudice? Are they no longer allowed to have a dialogue about the issues facing people who look like them? Ok, wait, I get it now, son. The minute a miniscule portion of a community “makes it,” all of the ills facing everyone else magically dissipates. It all makes sense now, bruh. Look, I might, MIGHT, give someone a slight pass for questioning the timing of Kaepernick’s move. However; simply dismissing his ideals because of his tax bracket is beyond fucking stupid, bro. Stop the foolishness, man.

Next, there’s another argument being made that Kaepernick needs to respect the flag because of our troops. Now, to be fair, I have nothing but respect for any individual who puts their life on the line for our country. Frankly, our soldiers display a level of bravery the average person simply doesn’t exhibit. However; fighting for our country and racial injustice are mutually exclusive, man. Why is it so difficult for some to even remotely open their eyes to the troubling history of America? Newsflash, dummies: there were still troops when Black people weren’t allowed to vote. There were still troops when we were considered three-fifths of a person. There were still troops during the Jim Crow era. Just because these men and women fight for this country’s ideals does NOT mean Black people aren’t allowed to bring up the ugly truth of how this land has historically treated us. Since the age of the Founding Fathers, the military and racism have both resided on the same land. It is what it is, son. DEAL with it. That’s truly the only way to make the argument go away.

All in all, I don’t actually have the time to address all of the ridiculous theories regarding Kaepernick. I just wanted to highlight a couple I thought were particularly preposterous. Look, regardless of his current stature as a player, he has every right to take a stand, if he so desires. While some fools think it’s a bright idea to burn his jersey now, I guarantee if he threw four touchdowns next game, these “fans” would forget all about this. So, to me, all of his detractors can shut the flying fuckity-fuck up. The fact that people are more up in arms about his bench protest than the issues he’s bringing attention to says everything. Situations like this prove we’ll probably never have the “open dialogue” about race pundits love to talk about. No one really wants to hash these ideas out, man. Everyone wants to continue to embrace the status quo. That is all. That is all, son. Good day.

P.S. Really, Jerry Rice? Really?! You’re really going to take the “All Lives Matterapproach against Kaepernick? Honestly, I’m not even going to list the amount of ways you’re an idiot, man. I’ve already addressed people like you in my “Money Can’t Buy ‘Woke’” post. Go sit down somewhere and be silent, man. If your conversation ain’t about a slant route or a hitch pattern, I don’t want to hear it, son. Hush.
