Some wise man or woman somewhere at some point in time said, “Better to go too soon than too late.” I must agree. I’d much rather say my last goodbyes and tip on out gracefully than be outchea looking washed up and getting talked crazy about behind my back AND in my damn face. There’s always a retired hater somewhere that’ll bring up an old and tired Willie Mays unsuccessfully chasing down fly balls in Shea Stadium as a Met in the early ‘70s, years removed from his glory days in the Polo Grounds with the New York Baseball Giants. And I’m definitely the type of New Jack Hater to bring up Mike with his rusty ass knees struggling in the second game of back-to-backs and bickering with disrespectful new millennium teammates as a 40something guard/GM with the Washington Wizards. Opinions may vary, but in most cases I’d rather see greatness leave while still on top. It sucks seeing legacies tarnished in any way, even though true fans choose to ignore the lackluster endings. But that’s the fans. Critics, who often determine the weight of legacy, use these lackluster endings to justify undercutting all time greatness. I say this because I feel that Law & Order: SVU is currently the visual embodiment of going too late. Fifteen seasons deep, it’s given us more than enough memorable episodes, moments, and lasting impressions. But to myself and several other day one fans I’ve spoken with, it’s run its course. Truthfully speaking, SVU hasn’t been the same since Stabler (Christopher Meloni) parted ways a couple seasons ago. They’ve taken the character of Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) in a direction that’s way OD for no apparent reason. Kragen and Munch have said their goodbyes as well. Amaro and Rollins are okay…nah, they’re wack. They’re still underusing Ice. I also have a problem with how they’ve flipped the “ripped from the headlines” episodes the past few seasons. The all-time fail had to come earlier this past season with the bikers kidnapping the girl and her mother, an obvious rip-off of the West Side Highway/Washington Heights incident with the bikers and the SUV in which the SUV ran over one of one of the biker’s legs. They totally wasted that headline for a brief piece of the plot that wasn’t even necessary. SVU still has its share of memorable moments and good episodes, but all in all, it’s become dry and predictable. Let it go while it’s still one of my favorite shows ever.
Why are you Negroes so insistent and persistent in your infatuation with the Illuminati? More concisely, why are you so damn adamant about certain Black celebrities being members of the Illuminati? I’ll speak on the Illuminati itself first. I’ll start by saying that I read Behold a Pale Horse way back in 1996 as a freshman at VUU (Big ups to that book’s owner, my nigga for life Rock Lark). For those of you who don’t know, that piece of literature is a major component in the Illuminati movement. It’s by Milton William Cooper, an alleged ex-military guy who was high up enough in rank to have had access to confidential government information. He talks about everything from aliens to AIDS to Kennedy’s assassination to the mythical Illuminati itself. You can read the book if you want all the particulars. But this is my blog, so I’m gonna give you my spin on all this secret society shit. Are there a select few capitalists who dictate the flow of the world’s economy? Absolutely. This has gone on since America has been America, perhaps before. We still see obvious remnants of it today via things like media ownership grandfather exemptions. It’s all about old money at the end of the day because old money has always had all the say. Now, whether or not there is some secret meeting right now that includes all the world’s elite devils about how to continue dominating society the way they have the past few thousand years? I seriously doubt it. Rich white dudes don’t clique up too tough. They rock with their families. They make money, teach their young how to do it, die, and pass their money and influence down to their young. They don’t have any New Day Co-op type shit going. Trust me. Why would they ever have to hide shit? They never have.
Now…for you porch monkeys who from time to time waste five to ten minutes of my precious time trying to convince me that Jay Z, Beyonce, and Young Jeezy are members of the Illuminati…may you eat a delicious Italian dish, lay down, choke and die of acid reflux. If there is in fact an old boy network that predates modern civilization in full effect, why in the fidduck would they include colored MF of any type? And Jeezy? Jeezy? I’ve actually had more than two MF tell me that Jay Jenkins is a member of the Illuminati? Boy, if it wasn’t for my grandma dem, MLK, and James Brown, I swear fo’ God I’d trade you darkies in for a used NYC driven ’87 Hyundai Sonata. Y’all need to open a damn book. Expand your mind.
