What Is Wrong With Today’s Youth?

So, here we are again, son. Another day, another violent act in an American school. Look, when a school shooting occurs, the conversation almost immediately turns to guns. Now, in a good amount of situations, that dialogue is warranted, man. However, I have another question that also needs addressing, fam: what is wrong with today’s youth, bruh? I mean, whether it’s killing their fellow students or committing suicide, death always seems to be the answer for these kids. All in all, I want to know why.

Ok, before I continue, let me talk about Dimitrios Pagourtzis. Now, as I’m sure we all know, Pagourtzis is the latest mass murderer to victimize a school. As of right now, ten people are dead and another thirteen are injured after the 17-year-old opened fire at Santa Fe High School in Texas. Currently, I don’t know if authorities have figured out a motive. According to victim Shana Fisher‘s mom, Shana rejected Pagourtzis a few days prior and could’ve been targeted because of it. In any case, we just don’t know, son.

Now, some of my liberal compatriots may be mad at me, but I don’t think this particular case is a gun issue. Listen, Pagourtzis’s father legally owned the Remington 970 shotgun and .38 caliber pistol that Pagourtzis used. On the real, there was no way for a gun seller to know that this dude’s son would do what he did, man. Look, “being weird” is not a strong enough sign to determine who’s going to be a killer, fam. Shit, I knew plenty of “weird” kids in school and none of them ever showed up with a weapon, bruh.

Anyway, I really want to know what’s going on in these kids’s heads, son. Furthermore, I want to lump in the kids who commit suicide, man. Like, why is violence against themselves or others the answer? What is so “bad” about their lives that they see no other option, fam? Frankly, being bullied is not a good enough to reason to take anyone’s life, bruh. Real talk, I was bullied when I was a kid too. Hell, I wore glasses and braces, so I was an easy mark for antagonizers, folks. All I know is, once I hit someone back, the dynamic started to change.

In the end, maybe I’m rambling, son. Maybe I’m giving too much humanity to people who do disgusting things. However, if we don’t understand the motivation behind these acts, how can we really prevent them? Ultimately, taking away all of the guns can’t be the only answer, man. By and by, I’m one of the main proponents of gun control, fam. But, there’s something going on in these situations that’s deeper than access to firearms, bruh. At the end of the day, I just want to know what it is, people. Keeping it a buck, I really don’t have the answers. That is all. LC out.

Who’s Bombing Texas?

So, I won’t lie, son. I don’t have a lot of information about what’s going on in Texas right now. However; the number of bombings this month have been disturbing, man. As of right now, since March began, there have been five bombings in Austin and San Antonio. All I know is, authorities need to figure out what’s going on before more people are killed.

Ok, before I continue, can we talk about the fact that this story hasn’t been getting a ton of coverage? I mean, why isn’t it being plastered everywhere that there may be a serial bomber on the loose? So far, four of the five bombings have occurred in Austin. On top of that, two people have been killed and another four have been injured. Now, while tons of cops and the ATF have been on the scene, there haven’t been a lot of answers, fam.

On the real, I’m shooting in the dark right now, but I wouldn’t be surprised if a soldier is doing this. I say that because of how tactical all of this seems. Generally speaking, amateurs find a way to get caught, bruh. Currently, officers have nothing but carnage to rely on as evidence, folks. By and by, it doesn’t seem like the perpetrator is some rookie, people.

In the end, that’s all I’ve got, son. Ultimately, I just wanted to bring awareness to a scary situation. At the end of the day, I hope a resolution is imminent. I really don’t want anyone else getting hurt/killed over random violence. With that being said, let’s hope the authorities get to the bottom of this ASAP. That is all. LC out.

Donald Trump Just Confused Two Mass Shootings

So, when I woke up this morning, I planned on writing about the latest shooting in California. I mean, my plan was to talk about the fuckery that Kevin Janson Neal inflicted on Tehama County. Now, I’m still going to speak about this tragedy, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t comment on Donald Trump‘s response to the tragedy. Basically, y’alls President confused one mass shooting with another one, son. Worse yet, he didn’t even bother to change the template of his tweet before he sent it out.

Ok, before I continue, let me talk about the matter at hand, man. Now, for those who missed it, just yesterday, Kevin Neal opened fire on a myriad of people. Apparently, he was at odds with his neighbors and decided to kill them. From there, he drove around town, in stolen cars, and fired on unsuspecting folks. Ultimately, he ended up at an elementary school and tried to wreak havoc, fam. All in all, in the aftermath of his attack, four people were dead and another ten were injured. Frankly, if the school faculty didn’t react quicker, there could’ve been more bloodshed, fam.

Now, it goes without saying that this situation is terrible, bruh. Luckily, none of the children were killed, but one was hurt during the chaos. With that being said, my condolences to everyone who was affected by this horror. On the real, it’s insane that this was the third mass shooting in under two months, son. First, it was Las Vegas and then it was Texas. At this point, I’m not even sure of what needs to be done here, man. Like, none of the community’s suggestions are even entertained by our elected officials, fam. Honestly, people just keep on dying, folks.

Moving on, on its own, the shooting would’ve been bad enough, son. However; Trump found a way to make it worse by hitting his Twitter account. So, in the wake of the incident, Trump tweeted out “May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived.” Now, if anyone is paying attention, they’d know that he just referenced the wrong shooting. Even worse, he copied and pasted a nearly identical message that he sent when the real Texas shooting happened. Look, this man didn’t even have the wherewithal or the respect to get the place right, man! Like, I’m at a fucking loss for words, fam!

Look, his reaction is fucked up on multiple levels, bruh. First, we’ve gotten to a point where mass shootings are the norm now. As a nation, we’ve become so desensitized to this kind of violence that all we offer victims are “thoughts and prayers.” Because of this, the fucking President thought it was okay to have a mass shooting tweet template. Next, it takes a special kind of asshole to not even bother getting the location right. Real talk, no Trump apologist can make this faux pas okay, son. This man clearly doesn’t give a flying fuck about the American people!

In the end, I have nothing else to say here, man. Ultimately, I don’t hate many people, but Donald Trump is ABSOLUTELY on that list, fam! He is, without question, one of the worst things to ever happen to this nation, bruh. By and by, as long as he’s in control, we’re doomed, folks. There’s no other way to cut it or slice it, people. That is all. LC out.

The REAL Faces Of Terror

Disclaimer: This post is probably going to piss some people off, son. Tough shit, man.

Look, I’m going to just get straight to the point, fam. When it comes to terrorism in America, radical Muslims aren’t our biggest threat. Now, if we’re keeping it a buck here, there’s one group who’s a larger problem than anyone else: White men. Listen, I know a lot of people are going to take this post the wrong way, but the numbers don’t lie, bruh. Since 9/11, WAY more Americans have been killed by White men than Islamic extremists. All in all, THIS is the REAL face of terror, folks!

Ok, before I continue, let me make one thing clear: radical Islamic terrorists are a real problem. Now, I don’t want to make it sound like I don’t believe that groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda are a problem. With that being said, they don’t cause NEARLY as many issues in the United States as politicians would have us believe. Shit, even when it comes to extremist-related attacks, a good number of the perpetrators are U.S. citizens. In addition, even when they’re not citizens, none of them come from the countries on Donald Trump’s Muslim Ban. So, what terror is he preventing exactly?

So, I was compelled to write this post after the tragedy in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Just yesterday, 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley opened fire at First Baptist Church. In the wake of the carnage, 26 people were killed, including the pastor’s daughter. Now, once his mayhem had subsided, he was found dead in his vehicle, seemingly from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. As of now, we have no idea what his motive was. However; history tells us that he was a piece of shit.

Now, based on recently-released information, Kelley was a bad seed through and through. During his time in the Air Force, he was court-martialed for beating up his wife and his child. He ended up serving a year in a military prison and was subsequently dishonorably discharged. Furthermore, he wasn’t allowed to own any weapons but still descended upon the people in that church with an assault rifle. *Sigh* Man, half of the parishioners are dead and we have NO clue why, son.

Moving on, I don’t want to turn this into a political debate, but Trump truly makes my blood boil, man. He couldn’t WAIT to call Sayfullo Saipov an “animal,” but had no such words for Kelley. Instead, he chalked it all up to a “mental health” issue and refused to comment on gun control. Well, if it’s “too early” to talk about gun reform, then why isn’t it too early to talk about mental health? Let’s be real, Trump doesn’t know anything about this man, fam. So, how does he know whether or not he’s crazy? Bruh, get the flying fuck outta here!

In the end, I just want this country to be honest with itself, son. Devin Patrick Kelley is a terrorist, man. Stephen Paddock is a terrorist, fam. Ultimately, Americans have a higher probability of running into them than an Islamic extremist. By and by, until we come to grips with these facts, people are going to keep on dying, bruh. All I can say, Rest In Peace to all of the innocent people who lost their lives. LC out.

Does Donald Trump Know Puerto Rico Is Part Of America?

So, what’s the difference between Puerto Rico, Texas and Florida? I mean, all three places were battered by hurricanes. Also, all three places house American citizens. Look, whether it was Hurricane Harvey, Irma or Maria, each land was devastated by Mother Nature. So, I ask again, what’s the difference between Puerto Rico, Texas and Florida? The fact that Donald Trump doesn’t give a fuck about the citizens in Puerto Rico.

Now, for those who missed it, Trump spent this past weekend blaming Puerto Rico for their own misfortunes. Instead of commenting on the fact that fellow Americans don’t have power or running water, he talked about the land’s debt. Instead of heeding Carmen Yulín Cruz‘s pleas for help, he criticized her leadership and falsely claimed that relief efforts were great. Once again, instead of having genuine compassion for people, Trump turned another tragedy into politics.

Fam, Trump actually had the audacity to say that Puerto Rico wants everything done for them. Shit, did he say that to the Houston residents who begged Joel Osteen for shelter? Did he say that to Miami residents who watched South Beach get damn near washed away? Nah, Trump only took that tone with the Brown people, son. Look, no one can tell me that race isn’t a factor when these people need help just like any other citizen. All in all, Puerto Ricans did nothing to deserve such blatant disrespect, man.

In the end, I’m surprised that Trump can still surprise me. I mean, the lack of regard for people under his jurisdiction is staggering, fam. Then again, he’s probably like the 46% of Americans who don’t even know that Puerto Ricans are fellow citizens. *Sigh* It’s Monday morning and my head already hurts, bruh. I’m gonna go now. LC out.

Where Was Barack Obama During Hurricane Katrina?

Listen, people are stupid, son. Like, if we’re keeping it all of the way real, there are TONS of idiotic folks in our world. With that being said, it takes a special brand of moron to turn Hurricane Harvey into a bipartisan issue. However; some Donald Trump supporters have found a way to do it, man. Now, in an attempt to praise Trump’s response to Harvey, a few fools took aim at Barack Obama‘s response to Hurricane Katrina. There’s only one problem, fam: OBAMA WASN’T PRESIDENT DURING HURRICANE KATRINA!

Man, the dumb-dumb levels of some individuals are just mind-boggling. Look, not only did people claim that Obama botched the Katrina relief effort, but they even insinuated that he was golfing instead of doing his job. Keep in mind, Katrina occurred in 2005. Obama didn’t get elected until 2008 and didn’t take office until 2009. Back in ’05, he was only a Senator in Illinois and George W. Bush was the President. Now, despite that fact, Obama STILL made his way down to New Orleans to provide aid to the people. THAT’s what he was doing during Hurricane Katrina, son!

Listen, I’m no Obama apologist, but clowns go out of their way to try and make that man look bad. Shit, what’s next? Was he responsible for 9/11? Did he cause the Challenger to explode? Oh, wait, Vietnam was all his fault, bruh! Along with Pearl Harbor, the Great Depression AND the Civil War, fam! All in all, just blame the Black man! I mean, EVERYTHING is on him, man!

In the end, my head hurts, son. Like, people suck, bruh. On the real, dummies who think like this are allowed to vote in this country, people. These asshats have a hand and a voice in our political system. All I can say is, this is exactly why we’re doomed as a nation. By and by, thanks for giving me a daily reminder of the inevitable, Trump supporters. LC out.

What Can We Do About Hurricane Harvey?

So, at this point, everyone should know what’s going on in Texas, man. I mean, Hurricane Harvey is out here BUGGING, son! As of now, at least 10 people have died, many more have been injured and TONS of others have been displaced. Needless to say, our Southern neighbors need all of the help they can get, fam. In any case, I hope this post can assist in some way, shape or form.

Now, I’m going to keep this brief, people. On the real, I’m using today’s post as a way to provide some necessary information. With that being said, if anyone wants to contribute to the relief effort in Texas, feel free to donate to the “Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.” This fund was set up by Mayor Sylvester Turner as a means of helping affected victims. In addition, The New York Times has also provided a list of local organizations that could help the cause. Hopefully, everyone donates to at least one of these groups, man. I mean, it’s VERY necessary, son.

In the end, I may be praying for Texas, but I also want to put some money in their hands. All I know is, the rebuilding process is going to be a motherfucker and every dollar counts, fam. By and by, I hope everyone stays safe down there, bruh. LC out.

P.S. Joel Osteen is looking shady as fuck right now, man. Now, for those who are unaware, his Lakewood Church used to be The Summit/Compaq Center. Meaning, that was the building where the Houston Rockets used to play. Meaning, it can hold at least 16,000 people. Meaning, there’s NO reason why it should be closed when displaced people need shelter. Good Lord, this man can take the congregation’s money every Sunday, but he can’t give people a roof over their heads? All in all, when things clear up down there, I want everyone to remember this, man. That is all.
