I Don’t Know If I Believe This Dwight Howard Story

Now, let me begin this post by saying that I don’t care if Dwight Howard is gay or not. I don’t care if he’s bisexual or if he gets down with transgender women. All I know is, I don’t want that dude on my basketball team. In any case, Howard’s name is being dragged through the mud because of a story by Masin Elijè. Apparently, according to Elijè, Howard is his ex-boyfriend. Furthermore, Elijè took it upon himself to “out” Howard due to alleged threats of violence. With all of that being said, I have some real doubts about Elijè’s story, son.

Ok, for those who missed it, Elijè is claiming that he had a relationship with Howard. Now, based on his story, their situation ended because of Howard’s infidelity and possible attraction to transgender women. From there, I’ve read some other shit about sex parties and allegations that Howard’s pastor threatened Elijè’s life. The word is, all of this has transpired because he wouldn’t sign an NDA about his time with Howard. Look, all of this could very well be true, man. But, based on the person telling the story, I might have to call shenanigans, fam.

Listen, Elijè is no stranger to the bullshit, bruh. Just last year, both Elijè and Rubi Rose tried to run the same scam on Playboi Carti. After Rose and Carti broke up, she alleged that Carti was messing around with Elijè. Anyway, Elijè tried to put out some DM’s to corroborate the story and most people believe they were fabricated. Fast forward to now and her DM’s with Howard also look shaky. For one, Elijè’s responses are missing the normal text bubbles that appear in Instagram conversations. So, they appear to be doctored as hell, son. All I can say is, we don’t believe Elijè, he needs more people.

In the end, who cares if Howard is gay, man. Ultimately, that ain’t any of our business, fam. Frankly, all we need to know is that he’s a trash NBA player. Ok, yeah, he was dominant at one point in time, but that time is long gone, bruh. By and by, some of the “hurt butt” jokes are funny, but falsely outing someone is bullshit, son. Hell, even legitimately outing someone is bullshit, folks. At the end of the day, that’s not another person’s call to make. The way I see it, Elijè better be telling the truth, people. If not, I hope Howard sues him for erythang. Not “everything,” but erythang. That is all. LC out.

Black Republicans Aren’t The Issue, Chance The Rapper

So, I’m not going to talk about Kanye West today, son. Frankly, my brain can’t even begin to process the fuckery he’s saying right now. On the real, I don’t know what’s worse, man: the idea that he really believes all of the bullshit he’s tweeting or the idea that he’s trolling us as an album rollout. In any case, I want to address Chance The Rapper and people who think like him. Look, no one said that Black people can’t be Republicans, fam. Real talk, people don’t hate Donald Trump because he’s Republican, bruh. We hate him because of his consistent disrespect and disregard of the disenfranchised.

Now, for those who missed it, Chance just tried to save Kanye. Somehow, he thought that tweeting “Black people don’t have to be Democrats” was some profound shit, son. However, nobody said that, Chance! That ain’t the fucking issue, man! On top of that, CyHi the Prynce took it upon himself to remind us that Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican. Ok, so was James Brown and Ray Charles, fam. Once again, that isn’t the fucking problem, fam! Keeping it a buck, Trump’s lunacy should be a bipartisan issue. Listen, people on the Right AND the Left should be bothered by what Trump represents.

Listen, when it comes to Trump, I’ve watched that man commit an unbelievable amount of egregious offenses. This is the same man who called all Hispanic people drug dealers, murderers and rapists on the campaign trail. This is the same man who enacted a travel ban to block Muslims from coming to a “religiously free” country. This is the same man who’s currently trying to block transgender people from serving in our military. This is the same man who’s trying to give guns to our underpaid teaching staff. This is the same man who’s surrounded himself with a MULTITUDE of people who are now under investigation. Need I say more?! Look, this isn’t a Democrat or Republican issue, bruh. This is an issue of a man who’s CLEARLY unfit to lead and we’re just letting him cook, son.

In the end, folks like Chance can miss me with this Black Republican shit, man. In addition, people like Kanye can miss me with the “I don’t agree with everything he says” rhetoric. Ultimately, that doesn’t make up for all of Trump’s heinous policies, fam. By and by, just because people may only agree with SOME of Trump’s ideas doesn’t mean that the rest of them go away. At the end of the day, it’s a package deal, bruh. For example, we can’t pay attention to his platform on jobs and ignore his platform on women’s rights, son. All I know is, folks like Chance need to fully develop their political and social stances before they open their mouths. That is all. LC out.

Transgender People Can’t Serve America

Man, can someone tell me what world I’m living in? Like, I’ve always believed that I live on Earth, but this has to be the Twilight Zone, son. Fam, what the FUCK is happening to this country?! Is Donald Trump serious, people? Is the GOP serious, bruh? What part of the game is telling transgender people that they can’t fight for the nation? On the real, the levels of hate in this administration make my skin crawl, man.

Now, for those who missed it, Trump just tweeted some WILD shit yesterday. Apparently, after speaking with his “generals,” Trump declared that transgender people will no longer be accepted or allowed to serve in the military. According to his logic, our armed services need to focus on “overwhelming victory” and not accommodating their needs. All jokes aside, that’s got to be some of the most hateful rhetoric to ever come from a sitting United States President, fam. This dude just blindly disrespected an ENTIRE group of Americans, son!

All in all, I have a BUNCH of questions, man. First, does he not think that there aren’t already transgender people in our military? Shit, according to statistics, there are roughly 10,000 individuals who identify as transgender on either active or reserve duty. So, did their “medical costs” overwhelm the government before? Did they act as a distraction before? Fuck no, son! This move is nothing more than a pure demonstration of hate. Why is this type of bullshit continually coming from our highest office, fam?

Ok, before I move on, can I backtrack for a second? Now, my memory may be trash, but I’m pretty sure that Newt Gingrich said something similar about women twenty-some-odd years ago. Back then, he claimed that women couldn’t serve because they lack “upper body strength” and would “get infections.” So, basically, the GOP has a looooooong history of hating on anyone who isn’t a straight White man. Keeping it a buck, it just seems to be in their nature, son.

In the end, anytime I think the bar can’t get lower, it does, fam. Real talk, I was blown away by this turn of events, bruh. We’re literally watching an administration that’s built on the oppression of damn near EVERY disenfranchised group. At this point, there’s no justification for being a Trump supporter. I don’t give a fuck how someone tries to spin this, son. If anyone supports Trump, then they support hate. Plain and simple. With that being said, fuck ALL of his proponents, man! Every. Last. One. Of. Them! LC out.

Donald Glover Is My Hero

Disclaimer: There are spoilers all over this post, son. If anyone hasn’t watched Donald Glover’s Atlanta yet, be warned, I’m spilling all of the beans, bro. I’m just trying to give the people a heads-up, man. Now, let’s go.

Let’s just skip the formalities and get right to the proceedings, son. Donald Glover is my hero, man. I watched the first two episodes of his new show (Atlanta) last night, and I couldn’t be more hyped for what’s to come. For me, it’s refreshing to see a Black show on TV that doesn’t revolve around clichés, stereotypes and overall coonery. Side note, I’m well aware of the fact Black-ish also exists, so let me cook, man. In any case, as it stands now, the characters seem to have understated complexities that will surely evolve as the season progresses. With all of that being said, allow me to talk about some of my favorite scenes. Ready? Let’s get to it, son.

The first scene that jumps out at me is the one where Alfred (Paper Boi) gets into an altercation with a stranger over his car. While watching the events unfold with my fiancée, we found ourselves at odds in terms of how he should’ve handled the situation. On one hand, she thought he should’ve just left the situation alone. On the other hand, I COMPLETELY understood why he confronted that dude. He was just sitting in his car, minding his own damn business, and this random guy decides to kick off his side view mirror. Man, I would’ve been LIVID, son. Now, I wouldn’t advise anyone to shoot another person over this, but I’d absolutely give that clown a couple of kidney shots, for good measure.

Next, another scene that sticks out to me is one that occurs while Earn is in jail. Through no fault of his own, he’s sitting in the middle of a conversation between some other dude and a trans woman. During the dialogue, the man waxes poetically about the days he and the lady used to bump uglies, seemingly unaware of the fact she’s transgender. When the other men in the holding area call the guy out over this, he’s simultaneously overrun with anger and confusion, all while trying to establish the fact he isn’t gay. In a scene that probably lasted less than five minutes, the show was able to tackle a perception of the transgender community without being crass. It definitely takes a handful of bravery and gravitas to open up such a taboo dialogue in only the second episode.

Lastly, this next observation isn’t about a particular scene, but I have to say, the homie Darius is hilarious, man. Any man who can talk about lemon pepper wings, his balls been crushed and the meaning of life with the same level of deadpan is a genius, son. Honestly, whatever weed that dude is smoking, I want in, bro. He doesn’t seem to have a single care in the entire world. That’s truly the way to live, man.

In the end, there’s nothing else to say, bro. So far, this show is awesome. I’m definitely looking forward to the upcoming episodes. Viva la intelligent writing, man! I’m pretty sure that last sentence didn’t make much sense, but who cares, son. Fight me. Good day.
