MNR: Justice for Just-Us
“Who said good folks are not supposed to die?”
Nine-year-old Ezra Blount became the tenth person to succumb to injuries sustained at the first night of the 11.5-11.6 Astroworld music festival, thrown (and headlined) by Travis Scott, organized by Live Nation. Blount attended the concert with his father Treston. He was sitting on Treston’s shoulders when the crowd surge pushed dad to the ground, causing him to pass out. The little boy fell and was trampled by the crowd. He went into cardiac arrest and perished yesterday. RIP to little Ezra, first and foremost. I have a few questions and a bit of vitriol to spew, but that would be disrespectful at a somber time. I’ll save my ire for Travis.
I don’t want to be that guy, but I don’t feel that you are sincere in your grief. I have no way of knowing this. I don’t know you. But I’ve seen past events where you implored kids to push their way toward the stage, among other things. You have a dedicated fan base that has seen you live multiple times. I wonder how many of your faithful were instrumental in the deadly surge. I think you’re more worried about your brand than you are about the totality of the tragedy. I’ll leave it at that. But I feel like you are as culpable as your naysayers insist you are. I’m pretty sure the Nike and McDonalds deals are soon to be taken away. I don’t wish bad on you, but I don’t feel bad for you either.
I’m certain that I’m not the only rational American who has peeked in on the Kyle Rittenhouse trial and noticed that the judge has been more than accommodating to the defendant. It all began with demanding that those harmed by his bullets were not referred to as “victims.” The judge (on a different issue) excoriated the prosecution in a manner that a parent would scold a child, and then seemingly let the defense get away with a similar offense. At multiple times throughout the trial, his phone rang with the ringtone “God Bless the USA,” a song used by old Cheesy himself. Today we learned that he dropped the illegal weapon possession charge. Well damn! Is the fix in or nah, because it certainly seems to be? And who TF is this judge, anyway? I’m glad you asked.
Kenosha County, Wisconsin Judge Bruce Schroeder, 75, received his undergrad and law degree in-state from Marquette University. He was appointed to the court in 1983 and is the longest serving active judge in the state’s trial courts. He is one year in on a six-year term, for which he ran unopposed in 2020. He’s flamboyant and unapologetic. His views are a bit “out there.” But guess what? Schroeder didn’t wait until the trial began to get all cute on us. He’s been on his bullshit for a long time. Every tactic we’ve seen from him is directly from his unorthodox playbook, which even he admits is somewhat uncommon. He is who he is. Closing arguments are almost complete. I don’t think many of us will be surprised if the jury returns a “not guilty” verdict. It seems to be headed in that direction. I feel it will be because Schroeder has done everything but throw the alley (oop) to the defense. If it is, I wonder if those folk in Kenosha will take it to the streets like they did last year. You know, like the night when Rittenhouse killed two people? Only time will tell, but soon come.
FYI: I hope y’all know that the three men Rittenhouse shot are all white men. I’m on Twitter errday. A lot of folk are unaware of this fact. You Americans are quite disturbing.
So…I was sitting in the classroom today, minding my damn business. It was fourth period. I was hungry as a runaway slave that just escaped to northern territory. I got an alert on my iPhone. It was SoleLinks. They were letting me know that the Nike Sneakers app was finna have a shock drop on the Cool Grey Jordan 11. I went on the app. I put my bid in. I got ‘em (insert three robot arm emoji). I GOT THE W, WORD TO MY MAN BREAK, THE UNBREAKABLE ARMY, AND UNBREAKABLE KICKS! Do y’all have any idea how nasty it’s gonna be when they officially drop on 12.11? These are holy grail kix. A few niggas gon get their ass WHOOPED at their local mall or at the Foot Locker on 149th & Grand Concourse (IYKYK) for these sneakers. The bots are about to go ape shit. Some weirdo reseller is about to have 75 pairs in his cart and delivered to his mommy’s crib. The whole damn tri-state is gonna have them on in at least one of their IG pix. There will definitely be one family holiday pic on your IG TL where the momma, daddy, and chirren all have them on. Yeah, it’s gonna be like that. I love Black America. I love you Negroes. I can say it. I’m not Sleepy Joe.
That’s all for this week, good people. Buy some merch and stay up out these celebrities’ damn business. Y’all some weirdos for that type of activity.
