Honest Commentary About BET’s Hip-Hop Awards

I’m finally able to give my thoughts and opinions over the BET’s Hip Hop Awards this year. And if you do decide to “come for me”? Girl/Boy, bye. Okay…. Okay…. Okay…. It has been a few days since they aired. Last night, I was again in tears from re-watching it with my roommate. To be honest, the show had me learning lines like this was Comic View. I do want to say that Uncle Snoop was very comical and entertaining. Mentalwriting, can you envision Uncle Snoop as a host for the Oscars or Emmys? We aren’t talking about other award shows now- are we? We are talking about BET’s Hip Hop Awards. *gives side eye* He’s funny. Now, we would need to work on the marijuana jokes or on whoever was working the damn prompter. *gives side eye to BET’s President Debra Lee* Even though children shouldn’t be watching this awards show, we know they are. Let’s push children to at least finish high school before pursuing a life of music and smoking weed all day. I’m all about passions and dreams. You can’t tell me anything about being a writer. Shit, I bleed being a writer.

I fucks with Common! To Mike Brown’s parents, I wish you nothing but comfort during this time in the nation. I have never lost a child but I know the pain that you two carry every day is very inflexible. Stay strong. You two, along with Trayvon’s parents, are now parents to us all.

Now, let’s talk about David Banner’s verse in the cypher. To be hKermit The Frogonest, his bars were very profound and emotion provoking. He killed it for social justice. The lines from his verse that is the most memorable for me were- “How you proud to sell dope to your own folks, nigga?” and “Where the white rappers when they mowed Mike Brown?” *sips teas*

Another highlight was MC Lyte Yo-Yo, Brandy and Queen Latifah on the stage. I was fangirling hard over them. Probably, cheesing harder than Nelly. I have an older sister so the 80s & 90s has always been my thing. I appreciate her for sitting me down at an early age and showing me Groove Theory and TLC.

Can someone give Murda Mook a deal already?

Lil’ Terio? Jokes aside. Michelle Obama implemented a program called, Let’s Move. Beyoncé even collaborated with this epidemic by making a video with children.

 

My niece at the time was 10 when this video was made. My niece made me everyday dance to this because she was worried about my health. Now, it’s time to be worried about Lil’ Terio and his killin’ ‘em career. First, childhood obesity is NOT OKAY. It will never be okay. Secondly, you all need to stop exploiting these damn kids.

Keyshia Cole…. Were you okay that day/night? You came on stage looking a little disheveled. I know what goes on in dressing rooms. I’m praying for you.

The rest of show? Just ratchet bullshit. I’m not going to say anything about what Hip-Hop have come too. I just thank God every day for Common and other old school However, I do want to say that it is very sad watching the BET’s Hip-Hop awards because we all know the harsh truth. In a few years, some of those rappers will be washed up. Unless, you speak very articulate and are able to comprehend these damn contracts with these companies or you have some type of college degree, you’re not going much further than that.

McCain on rise of ISIS: ‘We predicted this’

Originally posted on CNN Political Ticker:

Sen. John McCain slammed President Barack Obama on Monday over his comments that U.S. intelligence underestimated ISIS.

McCain countered Obama’s assertions made on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” saying that ISIS’ expansion in Syria and Iraq was tied to the President’s decision not to leave a residual U.S. military force in Iraq and his refusal to arm moderate Syrian rebels last year despite urgings from his national security advisers.

“We predicted this and watched it,” McCain said on CNN’s “New Day.” “It was like watching a train wreck and warning every step of the way that this was happening.”

Dear White Gays: Stop Stealing Black Female Culture

I need some of you to cut it the hell out. Maybe, for some of you, it’s a presumed mutual appreciation for Beyoncé and weaves that has you thinking that I’m going to be amused by you approaching me in your best “Shanequa from around the way” voice. I don’t know. What I do know is that I don’t care how well you can quote Madea, who told you that your booty was getting bigger than hers, how cute you think it is to call yourself a strong black woman, who taught you to twerk, how funny you think it is to call yourself Quita or Keisha or for which black male you’ve been bottoming — you are not a black woman, and you do not get to claim either blackness or womanhood. It is not yours. It is not for you.

Let me explain.

Black people can’t have anything…

A Very Important Relationship Lesson

If you’re a social media geek like me, then you have come across this quote multiple times or seen it on a few social media sites. If not, please read below:

- Grab a plate & throw it on the ground.

- Okay, done.

- Did it break?

- Yes.

- Now say sorry to it.

- Sorry.

- Did it go back to how it was?

- No.

- DO YOU UNDERSTAND?

downloadOkay, so, do you understand and valuable the meaning of that lesson. At the end of the day, people are very fragile. Sometimes, I must remember that people are very fragile creatures. I’m not going to apologize for how I feel. However, I will say this… always treat people with the same respect they give out.

Racism & What the Fuck We Need to Understand

So, I’m scrolling through many news feeds when I came across this comment.

              “Why do we have to make every situation about race? I’m a young first generation American ‘white girl’, and I sympathize with African American people.”

Colbie Caillat once sung, “But I never told you….. What I should have said…. No, I never told you…. I just held it in…”

Do you all remember that song? Man, I remember that song. I had the biggest crush on a white woman during that time when that song came out. I think everyone had a crush on this girl at work. I still remember her addressing me one night when I was getting off of work in 2010. I was in my early twenties when she asked me the most compelling question and then stated, “Frankie, why do you always refer to me as ‘white’ girl? Why can’t you just refer to me as a girl, a woman? Remember, I’m just that.”

From that night on…. I addressed her correctly. J *shaking off the nostalgia*

I was addressing her that way because of a situation I experienced in my early teen years. When I was much younger, this white guy told me that I was “pretty cute” for a SMART, BLACK GIRL. 0.o Yes, I probably should have went ham but I was young-so young. That was my first time experiencing racism in Tennessee. I was only like 13, 14. So after that incident, I put all white Americans in the same boat. However, this woman taught me that race shouldn’t be an issue. We are all part of one race- the human race.

Racism is not an innate trait that we are born with. It is a characteristic flaw that is breed over time due to ignorance and being uneducated. Racism learned and instilled in us by others. Out of racism, certain privileges were born. “White Privilege” is one of the biggest contenders in America. “White Privilege” is the other side of racism that only certain Americans want to address. After “White Privilege”, you see other privileges broken down in specific races such as being light skin to being dark skin.

Nevertheless, the reason why every situation boils down to race in this country is because racism is rooted in every fucking problem we have. Let’s not front. Right now, ratchet ass Bill O’Reilly is leading a campaign that denies the existence of “white privilege” in America. He is only drawing this belief because he did NOT benefit from it growing up. 0.o Again, that’s like me denying that slavery didn’t happen because I wasn’t born during that century. *sips teas*

I hear the Mortal Kombat’s voice in my head saying, “FINISH HIM!” 250px-Fatality

Open Letter to Bill O’Reilly:

bruhYou don’t know me but you can get to know me. I think I’m pretty damn cool. Bruh, just because you didn’t benefit from “white privilege” growing up, does not mean it’s some made up bullshit. You’re Catholic, right? Do you see God walking around? No, you see him in people. Right? So, by denying “white privilege” existence is basically saying God does not exist. Or maybe, it’s how much you value something that determines if it exist or not? Right? Wrong! Being poor in America does not and should not excuse “white privilege”. However, racism is one of the biggest contender in this country that is currently driving allegiance in this country. It’s sad. It’s disgusting how the media treat other Americans all because of race.

Yeah, invite me to your show… invite me to lunch. I stay really close to Busboys and Poets. My treat! Let’s chat. You seem like a guy that loves to debate. I’m a woman that loves to debate when necessary. Let’s make that happen. Can we invite some people of the community too???!!!! This would be a great segment.

“Yo, We at war
We at war with terrorism, racism, and most of all we at war with ourselves..”

No Flex Zone Friday-Topic: Justin Bieber’s Strip Show

What’s up, People!

Today, I’m introducing a new segment to this site. It’s called No Flex Zone Friday. AYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Rae Sremmurd got me here twerking this early on a Friday morning.

Okay, first thing first…. No Flex Zone Friday will be a day where I will give passes to individuals for either negative or ridiculous headlines they are featured in. Lol. I will try to give an opinion on why t140910163134-justin-bieber-fashion-rocks-2014-horizontal-galleryhey should get a pass on it.

The first person that will be featured on No Flex Zone Friday will be Justin Bieber for his impromptu strip show at “Fashion Rocks”. I bet the thots were going ham when he began stripping on stage. *sips morning tea*

Yes, we all know the dude has been in the news for his antics as of late. Months back, y’all even went so far as to make a change petition to get him deported back to Canada. 0.o All that effort you all put in that damn petition, you all could have marched to Washington to petition shit like abortion or domestic violence laws.

Of course, he was booed while performing this act. So, again, why was this even a damn headline? *sips morning tea again*

J.B.,

This time you will get a pass for this impromptu strip show. You gave the real thots what they truly wanted which was your body. You’re the real MVP. image

Hopefully, we can get some music from you soon. *sneaks sip of Patron*
