Uh, Shout-out To Taylor Swift

So, I won’t lie, son. It’s super easy to hate on Taylor Swift, man. I mean, she’s made a career out of dissing ex-boyfriends and being fake humble, fam. All I can say is, that ain’t the type of vibe I regularly endorse, bruh. In any case, I have to give credit where credit is due. Normally, when someone has a platform as huge as hers, they steer clear of ALL political discussions. However, instead of running from her influence, Swift has decided to use her name in a positive way. All in all, salute to Swift, brethren!

Ok, for those who missed it, Swift took to Instagram to talk about the upcoming midterm elections. Now, while her tax bracket might suggest some Republican ties, she actually took the time to endorse some Democratic candidates. Then again, it’s not necessarily about whether she’s a Democrat or a Republican. Frankly, she simply doesn’t bang with Marsha Blackburn, a GOP candidate running for Senate in Tennessee. Anyway, instead of just being a contrarian for the sake of it, Swift actually explained why she doesn’t rock with Blackburn. For one, she pointed to Blackburn’s views on women and gay rights. Furthermore, Swift actually brought up systemic racism in America, something I NEVER thought I’d see from her.

Moving on, Swift gave her support for Phil Bredesen for the Senate and Jim Cooper for the House of Representatives. Needless to say, a lot of people, including myself, were shocked that she made such a public declaration. Shit, in 2018, who would’ve thought that Swift would be out here talking about racism while Kanye West is busy giving Donald Trump a dick-flute solo? *Sigh* These are strange fucking times we live in, son. Strange times indeed.

In the end, shout-out to Taylor Swift, man. Hell, even though I’ve never given her any props before, I guess there’s a first time for everything, fam. Ultimately, I agree most with one point she made: “vote based on who most closely represents your values.” By and by, that doesn’t have shit to do with party lines, bruh. Now, everybody, get out there and vote on November 6! That is all. LC out.

Long Live James Shaw Jr.!

So, I’m going to keep this post short today, son. On the real, I just want to take the time to give a shout-out to James Shaw Jr. I mean, that guy has to be the dopest dude in America right now, man. Shit, not only did he stop Travis Reinking from killing more people in a Nashville Waffle House, but he’s also raised a substantial amount of money for the families of the victims. All in all, this man should be celebrated, fam. No if, ands or buts about it, bruh.

Ok, at this point, if anyone isn’t aware of Shaw’s heroism, then shame on them, son. Basically, when Reinking decided to murder innocent people the other week, Shaw took it upon himself to act. He grabbed the burning barrel of Reinking’s rifle and wrestled it away from the killer. Essentially, by putting himself in harm’s way, Shaw saved the lives of many others. Real talk, he would have been enough of a hero if he left it there, man.

But, Shaw is way doper than that, fam. After receiving recognition for his bravery, he decided to start a GoFundMe donation. Originally, his intention was to raise $15,000 for the families of the deceased. Instead, he was able to raise upwards of $200,000, bruh. So, he saves additional people from getting hurt AND finds a way to contribute to the loved ones in need. Sheesh, how can anyone hate on this shit, son? Keeping it a buck, the world would be a MUCH better place if more people like Shaw existed.

In the end, there’s nothing else to say, man. Long live James Shaw Jr., fam! That is all. LC out.
