White People: Stop Calling The Cops On Us!

Look, now is the time to nip this racial profiling shit in the bud, son. Hey, White people, stop calling the fucking cops on us all of the cotdamn time! I mean, hasn’t the Black Lives Matter movement taught y’all anything?! It’s no secret that Black and Brown people are scared of police and for GOOD reason, man! The LAST thing we need is an unwarranted altercation, simply because White folks have an irrational fear of people of color. All in all, keep the fucking authorities out of these mundane situations, bruh!

Ok, for those who missed it, let me explain why I’m on ten today. So, Lolade Siyonbola is a Black graduate student at Yale University. Now, while studying in her dorm’s common room, she fell asleep. From there, some random White woman took it upon herself to call the cops on Siyonbola. Moving on, according to the authorities, the White woman stated that Siyonbola didn’t appear like she was supposed to be there. Oh, why would she think that, huh? Does it have anything to do with the color of Siyonbola’s skin? (*HEAVY sarcasm*)

Listen, this type of tomfoolery annoys the FUCK out of me, fam! Real talk, it’s so troublesome because it’s a SUPER common issue that people of color have to deal with. Shit, just the other week, Darren Martin, former White House staffer under Barack Obama, was confronted by police while moving into his new apartment. Apparently, his new neighbors thought he was a burglar. Also, in another incident, Kelly Fyffe-Marshall, Komi-Oluwa Olafimihan and Donisha Prendergast, Bob Marley‘s granddaughter, were surrounded by police outside of an Airbnb. Once again, the neighbors just assumed that they were thieves and called the cops on them. Lastly, we all know what happened to those Black dudes in Starbucks, son. So, I don’t even need to go into that again.

On the real, White people don’t seem to understand that they’re putting our lives in danger. Look, what if Martin had been shot in his apartment? Hell, that’s not an unreasonable thought since we get shot by the cops over EVERYTHING! How would these fucktard neighbors justify their actions then? Good Lord, even when we as minorities are minding our fucking business, we STILL get harassed, man! Keeping it a buck, it’s beyond tiring, fam. We just want to live our lives outside of the CONSTANT suspicion and scrutiny, bruh. All I can say is, knock it the fuck off, White people!

In the end, ahhhhhhhhhhh! Fuck, man! All of this shit has me HOT, son! Ultimately, situations like this make me question whether or not we really have allies, fam. Listen, Hillary Clinton is a “liberal” and STILL talked about being scared of Black people in hoodies. *Sigh* I swear, people of color can’t find refuge ANYWHERE, bruh. That’s all I’ve got for today, folks. LC out.

Starbucks: Where Sitting Down Is A Crime

So, I won’t lie, son. The list of shit that Black people can’t do without being harassed just keeps growing, man. I mean, there’s literally NOTHING we can do and NOWHERE we can go without being targeted. This time, a Starbucks in Philadelphia decided to get in on the nonsense, fam. All in all, I won’t blame Starbucks as an organization for what happened to the two wrongfully-arrested Black men. However; everybody who works in that particular store needs to be fired and sued, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, here’s how the fuckery went down, son. Now, two Black guys walked into Starbucks and sat down. Apparently, they were there to meet Andrew Yaffe, a real estate developer. The plan was for them to discuss some business opportunities. Anyway, while waiting for Yaffe, one of the men tried to use the bathroom. Since they hadn’t bought anything yet, they were denied entry. From there, a store manager asked both dudes to leave. When they refused, since they were waiting for Yaffe, the manager called the police. Ultimately, when the authorities showed up, both men were arrested for trespassing. Side note, during the arrest, Yaffe actually showed up. In any case, despite explaining to the officers that the men were waiting for him, they were still arrested anyway.

Moving on, a situation like this is yet another example of how Black people are viewed. Basically, regardless of what we’re doing, we’re always treated with hostility. I mean, let’s be real for a second, man. People sit down and chill in Starbucks locations ALL THE TIME! Shit, I’d bet money that right now some dude is on his MacBook, typing up some article that no one is going to read. Why? Because the Starbucks WiFi is always a good look, fam. So, why were these two men treated with such resentment? Hmm, maybe it has something to do with their skin color? Hell, I thought this was a post-racial society, bruh. Side note, I hope everyone can feeeeel the sarcasm in that last sentence.

In the end, it’s admirable that Kevin Johnson, Starbucks CEO, is bothered by this turn of events. It’s also good that the Starbucks patrons were unnerved by this gross injustice. However; none of this solves the real problem, son. Ultimately, the lens through which Black people are viewed is the issue, man. By and by, that is why the store manager’s first inclination was to call the police. At the end of the day, an irrational fear caused an irresponsible reaction. *Sigh* We can’t even enjoy coffee in peace, fam. LC out.
