EVERYONE Underestimated Andy Ruiz Jr.

So, let’s cut the bullshit, son. On the real, EVERYONE underestimated Andy Ruiz Jr. Like, only the most knowledgeable of boxing insiders gave him a chance to beat Anthony Joshua, man. Shit, I consider myself a connoisseur and my guy Thomas had to be the one to school me on Ruiz’ fast hands, fam. In any case, Ruiz just shocked the world and sent the Heavyweight division into a fucking tailspin.

Ok, for those who missed it, shit got real on Saturday night. Now, Joshua, the boxing pride of England, was set to make his American debut at Madison Square Garden. Originally, his opponent was supposed to be Jarrell Miller. However, as I detailed in a previous post, Miller righteously fucked up the bag, bruh. Anyway, on basically one month’s notice, Ruiz signed on to fight Joshua. All in all, most casual fans thought Ruiz looked like Gabriel Iglesias and didn’t give him a chance, son.

Moving on, the fight turned out toooooootally different than damn near everyone imagined, man. Shit, after being knocked down in the third round, Ruiz began to put them paws on Joshua, fam. I mean, he dropped Joshua twice in the same third round and then twice more in the seventh round. After Joshua began looking confused in his corner, the referee had no choice but to stop the fight, bruh. All I know is, I didn’t expect Joshua to get clanked that many times, son.

Look, to be honest, I always wondered about Joshua’s chin, man. Hell, when he got dropped by an old ass Wladimir Klitschko in 2017, I knew he could be vulnerable, fam. Frankly, that’s why I wanted to see him fight Deontay Wilder. Real talk, I wanted to see if his jaw could withstand Wilder’s right hand. All I can say is, after the slaps he received from Ruiz, he better stay faaaar away from Wilder, bruh. Keeping it a buck, Wilder might put Joshua on permanent hiatus, son.

In the end, I don’t know what to make of the Heavyweight division, man. Ultimately, I’m sure Joshua has a rematch clause with Ruiz. Meaning, he’ll have an opportunity to get his belts back. However, this loss puts a damper on the three-way race between Joshua, Wilder and Tyson Fury. By and by, this is exactly why I hate boxing politics, fam. The way I see it, all of these dudes should’ve fought each other already, bruh. Now, there are more obstacles in the way. *Sigh* Nevertheless, HUGE congrats to Ruiz, son. At the end of the day, there was no luck involved, brethren. The truth is, he plainly whooped Joshua’s ass, people. That is all. LC out.

Alabama & Georgia Have Lost Their Abortion-Hating Minds

So, for the life of me, I’ll never understand why our legislative entities are so hell bent on policing a woman’s body. Like, they’ll gladly cut access to Planned Parenthood and various social programs, but a woman better not DARE make a decision about what to do with her own uterus. All I can say is, Georgia and Alabama have lost their cotdamn minds, son. The truth is, it’s a dangerous fucking time to be a woman in America, man.

Ok, for those who missed it, both Georgia and Alabama have passed some frightening legislation on abortion. Now, let’s start with Georgia, fam. To begin, the state’s “fetal heartbeat” law will make it illegal for a woman to get an abortion after six weeks. Here’s the thing: a lot of women don’t even know they’re pregnant at the six-week mark. Meaning, this law doesn’t give women a chance to make an informed decision, bruh. Essentially, this is as close to an abortion ban that Georgia could pass, son.

In addition, this law gives the authorities the right to investigate a woman who has miscarried. Wait, let me say that again, man. Listen, if a woman has a miscarriage, the fucking police will now have the jurisdiction to investigate her. Like, that’s fucking insane, fam! Women are literally being turned into criminals for their own bodies, bruh. Honestly, I’m fucking scared for them, son.

Now, let’s talk about Alabama. So, unlike Georgia, Alabama just flat out said that women can’t have abortions. Well, unless there’s a “health risk.” To make matters worse, a few lawmakers tried to add exceptions for rape and incest and those provisions were shot down, man. So, let me get this straight, fam. A woman could literally be sexually assaulted, but held in violation of the law for not wanting to have the baby. My God, women are becoming prisoners to their own fucking bodies, fam. Frankly, I legit don’t know what else to say, bruh.

In the end, I see where all of this is going, son. Real talk, the proponents in Alabama are banking on this law reaching the Supreme Court, man. Ultimately, they’re trying to get Roe v. Wade overturned. The sad part is, at the rate things are going right now, that shit might actually happen, fam. At the end of the day, I honestly hope I’m wrong, bruh. All I know is, we can’t rest on our laurels, brethren. The fight is here and every voice is needed. That is all. LC out.

I Thought Mexico Was Paying For The Wall, Donald Trump

So, I have a serious question for all Donald Trump supporters. Now, all jokes aside, are y’all okay with this government shutdown? Like, are y’all okay with American lives being negatively impacted over a border wall that Trump said Mexico would pay for? Then again, why am I even asking, son? Roughly 300,000 people have raised over $18 million on GoFundMe for this very wall, man. All I know is, Trump lied (again) to his own base and they’re either too ambivalent or too dumb to care, fam.

Ok, to be real, I shouldn’t have to explain to anyone what’s going on right now, bruh. Shit, as of today, the government shutdown has been in effect for almost two weeks. Now, under normal circumstances, a shutdown is already trash, son. However, this particular one is especially garbage because it began during the holidays, man. Meaning, scores of Americans had to go through Christmas and New Year’s Day without their money or benefits. To make matters worse, the catalyst of this shutdown is a stupid ass wall that taxpayers aren’t even supposed to be responsible for.

Look, let’s be perfectly clear here, fam. During his presidential campaign, Trump FREQUENTLY reiterated that Mexico was going to pay for a wall along the border between their country and the United States. I mean, that promise was THE fundamental piece of his platform, bruh. Anyway, after the former and current Mexican presidents told Trump to go fuck himself, his wall became our problem. All I know is, it’s fucking ridiculous, son. For God‘s sake, he’s denying federal employees their pay for something that was never our fucking responsibility, man! Frankly, I have NO idea why his supporters are even remotely okay with this, brethren.

In the end, this is example 2,336,736 of why Donald Trump is a terrible fucking president, son. Ultimately, the fool behind The Art of the Deal has let three government shutdowns occur on his watch. *Sigh* I’m just tired of the constant fuckery, man. Trump can never make a deal, consistently loses cabinet members and his base is still none the wiser. By and by, THIS is why reasonable people think Trump supporters are stupid, fam. This is why. That is all. LC out.

Jamal Khashoggi’s Death Is Some Wild Sh*t

So, I’m going to keep it a buck, son. Look, I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I have all of the facts, man. Frankly, there’s a lot about Jamal Khashoggi‘s death that we still don’t know, fam. All I can say is, there seems to be a MASSIVE amount of funny business going on and nobody’s doing anything about it. In my eyes, someone needs to be held accountable for this and I’m pointing right to the regime in Saudi Arabia.

Ok, before I continue, let me kill one particular narrative, bruh. On the real, I’ve been seeing a number of people say that Khashoggi’s murder isn’t our business. Now, while America may not be directly involved in this situation, our influence is all over the place, son. For one, Khashoggi wasn’t only a Saudi citizen. He was also a U.S. resident who lived in Virginia and worked for The Washington Post. Side note, it’s not lost on me that Donald Trump hates WaPo and seems to be indifferent about the death of one of their writers.

In any case, Khashoggi’s killing was a direct assault on the press, man. I mean, he criticized King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed and was slain for it. Actually, he was butchered for it, man. For God‘s sake, Khashoggi died a terrible fucking death, fam. Shit, within minutes of arriving at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, he was dismembered and beheaded. On top of all of that, the Saudi government really expects us to believe that they had nothing to do with it. So, are we supposed to believe that rogue agents went into a cotdamn consulate, which is essentially Saudi land, and killed a citizen? A citizen known for slamming the King and the Crown Prince? Bruh, get the FUCK outta here, son! Real talk, no outside forces would DARE to be that brazen, folks.

To make matters worse, Trump is out here sucking up to yet another foreign dictator. Despite a myriad of clues that Saudi Arabia orchestrated Khashoggi’s death, he’d rather believe the denials of the King and the Crown Prince. In addition, he’s more concerned with securing an arms deal between our two nations than calling out blatant murderers, son. *Sigh* I don’t even know why I allow myself to be surprised anymore, man. Hell, this is EXACTLY what I should’ve expected from Trump, fam. This type of treachery is right up his alley, bruh.

In the end, this is a terrible situation, son. The worst part is, I doubt anybody will be brought to justice, man. Ultimately, times like this show me the benefit of being in America, fam. By and by, I know that our country is responsible for copious amounts of fuckity-fuck shit. However, at least we can say that journalists aren’t getting visibly massacred like this. At the end of the day, it’s a total mind-fuck realizing that free speech ain’t always free, bruh. That is all. LC out.

When’s The Right Time To Protest, Dak Prescott?

So, I won’t lie, son. I truly, truly despise when people say that an NFL game isn’t the right time or place to protest. Well, when is the right time, huh? Where is the right place, huh? Huh, Dak Prescott? When is it most convenient for people to talk about racial inequality? Maaaan, someone get Prescott the fuck outta here, man! Shit, I understand that he wants to keep his job as the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys. But, that doesn’t mean he has to shit on the players who choose to stand, or kneel, for something.

Ok, for those who missed it, Prescott just shucked and jived for Jerry Jones. Now, before I continue, I want everyone to read exactly what Prescott said. On the real, I don’t want to paraphrase anything, fam. I want to get his stance right before I flambé him. So, his thoughts are as follows:

I don’t think that’s the time or the venue to do so. The game of football has always brought me such a peace and I think it does the same for a lot of other people, people playing the game, people watching the game and any people that have an impact on the game. So, when you bring such a controversy to the stadium, to the field, to the game, it takes away. It takes away from the joy and the love that football brings a lot of people. I do exactly what I’m doing and what I stand by whether I was wearing the star or not, whether I was playing for Jerry Jones, Stephen Jones or any other owner. I believe in what I believe in and that’s that.

Oh, I’m sorry, Dak Prescott. I’m sorry that people speaking about injustice is getting in the way of a little football game. Like, is this dude fucking serious, bruh? Kudos to Prescott for finding “peace” on the football field. Guess who has a hard time finding peace in the United States, Prescott: minorities and people of color. Hell, the idea that a Black man in America would deem a peaceful protest “inappropriate” is beyond me, son. Real talk, he must be really scared of Jones taking his job, man.

Look, I feel like naysayers keep moving the goal post, pun intended. Like, it’s “inappropriate” to protest peacefully. Next, it’s “inappropriate” to protest during a specific time. Then, it’s “inappropriate” to protest in a specific place. Keeping it a buck, we all know what this is, fam. Frankly, bigots and sellouts don’t want to have to face the issues that we’re speaking about. The fact of the matter is, no time will ever be good enough to have this discussion. No place will ever be good enough to have this discussion. So, fuck how they feel, bruh! We’re going to deal with injustice now, whether these clowns like it or not.

In the end, fuck Dak Prescott, Jerry Jones, the Cowboys, the NFL and anybody who supports them. Ultimately, this league keeps proving that they don’t deserve our time, effort or money, son. By and by, Prescott better pray for a great season, man. At the end of the day, all of his cooning won’t save his job if he starts playing like shit. That is all. LC out.

RIP Nia Wilson

*Sigh* Rest In Peace, Nia Wilson. I mean, I don’t know how else to start this post, son. On the real, the word “senseless” isn’t even strong enough to describe her murder, man. Like, there’s literally NO reason why that 18-year-old girl should be dead right now, fam. For God‘s sake, she had her entire life ahead of her, bruh! Instead, a family has to mourn her death after an inexplicable and unjustifiable killing.

Ok, at this point, I hope everyone has heard about Wilson’s story, son. Basically, this past Sunday night, Wilson was riding the BART train in Oakland with two of her sisters. Anyway, as they all stepped off of their train, John Lee Cowell came out of nowhere and attacked the women with a knife. In the wake of the incident, Wilson laid dead while her sister, Lahtifa, was also stabbed. In the blink of an eye, the Wilson family was irreparably damaged.

Now, before I continue, I must admit that I may piss some Black people off right now. In any case, based on all of the digging I’ve done so far, I truly don’t know if Wilson’s murder was racially-motivated. Look, nobody knows what was going through Cowell’s head. Shit, he could be the most racist of the racists, man. However, there’s also A TON of evidence to suggest that this dude was a menace WAY before he senselessly murdered Wilson.

To begin, Cowell has an EXTENSIVE criminal record. In 2009, he pleaded no contest to battery. In 2013, he pleaded no contest again to battery. In 2015, he pleaded no contest to being under the influence of an illegal substance. In 2016, he was charged with theft, drug possession and illegally having tear gas. Those charges were later dropped when he was arrested and convicted for second-degree robbery. For that particular crime, he ended up serving two years in prison. To top it off, his family claims that he was previously diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

Look, I don’t want anybody to get my words misconstrued, fam. In no way, shape or form am I condoning what Cowell did to Wilson. Frankly, this dude should not have been allowed to roam the streets, bruh. Hell, how much of a violent history does a person need in order for them to be permanently separated from the rest of us? With that being said, I don’t want us to just jump to conclusions about race, son. Keeping it a buck, the circumstances are already dire enough for us.

Listen, it’s no secret that Black people are ALWAYS targeted in this country. Hell, I can’t even count how many times I’ve written about the consistent and abhorrent bigotry in America. All in all, I can’t rule out racism in this tragedy. But, in this case, I also think that mental health and our terrible criminal justice system played a big part in all of this. Real talk, someone or something needed to keep Cowell under wraps, man. He should’ve NEVER be in a position to carry out such a dastardly deed.

In the end, Wilson’s death is fucking tragic, fam. Ultimately, nothing I’ve said changes the fact that she didn’t deserve to die this way. By and by, NO ONE deserves to die this way, bruh. At the end of the day, my heart goes out to the Wilson family. All I can say is, I can’t even begin to imagine the pain they’re going through, brethren. That is all. LC out.

Donald Trump Is Vladimir Putin’s B*tch

Listen, let’s just skip the pleasantries, son. On the real, even if someone is a staunch Donald Trump supporter, they have to admit that yesterday was a fucking travesty, man. I mean, his post-meeting press conference with Vladimir Putin was one of the worst things I’ve ever witnessed, fam. Look, the American people had to witness the fucking President of the United States grovel at the feet of a foreign leader. All I know is, when will enough be fucking enough, bruh?

Ok, for those who missed it, yesterday was a complete and utter shit-show. Now, I already wrote about my skepticism of a closed-door meeting between Trump and Putin. However, I never thought the aftermath would be so insane, son. Like, I don’t even know where to begin with the nonsense, man. Shit, I could talk about the fact that Trump believes Putin over the U.S. intelligence agencies about Russian election meddling. Hell, I could even talk about the fact that Putin openly stated that he wanted Trump to win. In any case, their joint press conference was high-level fuckery, fam.

Look, here’s something that Trump doesn’t seem to understand: there’s a difference between meddling and collusion. Now, Robert Mueller‘s investigation is trying to determine whether or not Trump’s campaign conspired with foreign entities. However, the meddling part has already been proven, bruh. Like, we have unequivocal proof that Russian agents fucked with our election process, son. The problem is, Trump has too much pride to even admit this, man. Real talk, he simply refuses to acknowledge that outside influences helped him win the Presidency. In his mind, only his “greatness” propelled him to the White House.

So, here we are, fam. The American public has reached the point where our “leader” openly and frequently sucks up to a hostile nation. Listen, at this point, I don’t know how to explain what we’re witnessing, bruh. Keeping it a buck, I have no idea why Trump is so hell-bent on appeasing Putin, son. I don’t know if it’s because of potential business ventures or if Putin really has some dirt on him, man. Either way, Trump willfully betrayed his own country in favor of a foreign dictator. All in all, he disgraced every last one of us, people.

In the end, *sigh*. Ultimately, I don’t know what else to say, son. By and by, I’ve been legitimately baffled since yesterday, man. All I know is, I am still thoroughly confused about what I watched, fam. At the end of the day, Donald Trump cares WAY more about Russia than America, bruh. Frankly, the Republicans have to make a choice, folks. Are they going to stand up for this country, or are they going to continue doing the bidding of a traitor? The choice is theirs. That is all. LC out.
