There’s a reason or a method to the madness of my oft used quotes to begin these blogs. Any quote I use is indicative of my mood or my thoughts going into creating the pragmatic insanity I spew into face of popular culture. I guess you could call this a FYI.
Now to get into some serious shit…
Beware of a couple of things in the aftermath of the Mike Brown slaying in Ferguson, Missouri. Beware of what you say on social media. Even though I’m on Facebook, I’m one of the more inactive Facebook users you’ll come across. I have my reasons. But earlier tonight, my best friend from VUU and EFIL4AGGIN, Leroy Rock Lark, told me that a lot of us (Negroes) have been on FB making dumbass statements involving violence toward police and white folk. I think that’s the most ignorant shit of all time, not to mention corny, and I’m formerly and on special occasions one of history’s all time ignorant niggas. Without even checking to see who said what, I can guarantee 99% percent of the MF talking crazy wouldn’t kill a roach in a hospital room. These monkeys are speaking off of emotion, a cardinal no-no in life and even more so on social media. Once you send that post, tweet, or IG it’s there indelibly. It doesn’t matter if you delete it, whether it’s FB, the Twitter, or IG. Someone saw it; someone screenshot it. Now, you’re open to all types of scrutiny, whether it is fair or completely unfair. And you deserve it. In addition, you could affect your employment status or even your freedom for saying something too outlandish. For those of us out there talking crazy toward white folk, you only add fuel to the fire when it comes to race relations. You have absolutely no right to turn this into a racial matter if you plan to ridicule all white folk. There are plenty of good white folk protesting right beside our sisters and brothers in Ferguson right TF now, all in the name of humanity. If you’re looking at from a racial perspective with regard to the police, go right ahead. All police aren’t dirty, but enough are for me not to fuck with police at all. I’ll leave it at that. But to make this a black versus white, Do The Right Thing Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn 1989 summer day is completely out of place, and I’m ashamed that you are members of my race. Shut your ignorant ass the fuck up and go sit down somewhere. Delete FB, the Twitter, and IG off your phone and read a book, preferably 100 Blocks Stories.
Now for the fake revolutionaries out there in the aftermath…I’m sure if I were to analyze each and every one of you on a case by case basis, I’d find that many of you wouldn’t have the heart to go out tomorrow and die for your freedom, even if it meant the difference between life and death. You’re pussy, and you value your own lives way too much to be about and for the cause. But you know this in your hearts. At the end of the day, you have to answer to the man in the mirror. I don’t even waste my time addressing youse types most of the time. But in America, talk is cheap. You gotta show me, just like the state of Missouri (all pun intended). And for those of you who really are (somewhat) about your issue, you piss me off even worse. I can excuse the pussy niggas because 9 outta 10 I knew they were pussy and I never even took any of their words into consideration. But those of you “real” revolutionaries out there, you piss me off even more because youse niggas are seasonal employees. Let an innocent black body drop and you’re right there for the cause. But what happens two months after the not guilty verdicts and all out exonerations? What about a year later? Where are you MF? How many of you are still out there riding for Amadou Diallo? What about Sean Bell? You fake niggas don’t e’en mention Trayvon’s name anymore. Truth be told, the only folk out there in the past year or so I’ve seen mention Trayvon more than once are myself, my sis @Fuck_YoDreadz, and my lil homie @KWill_UC. I’ve never professed to be one of you revolutionary types, except for my own personal beliefs. I’m not the banner carrying, protest and march type of nigga. I’m just not a proponent, mainly because I fail to see its efficacy. Feel free to disagree or even hate me, that’s your opinion and right. All I ask is that you return the favor. In closing, be ‘bout your issue 24/7/365 like my folk @change_thoughts. She’s really outchea going hard for us. You know where I divert my attention and effort: to the babies. I choose to pay it forward. In my mind, that’s our only option.
