So Sterling pissed me off again.You see, Sterling feels his “constitutional rights” have been violated because he is being punished for his retarded racist ramblings (yay alliteration!). So let’s find out why he’s wrong.

The image above the text contains the exact text of the 1st amendment of the constitution for the United States of America, more commonly referred to as “Freedom of speech”.  People get the meaning of freedom confused as well, so let’s just define that right now. Oxford dictionary defines freedom as “The power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint”.  This does not mean there aren’t consequences.

Back to Sterling. Was he at all hindered or restrained from saying what he said? No. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be writing this… article? blog? editorial? Whatever you want to call it.  Were any laws made to forbid his racist remarks before, during, or after they were made? No. Did the United States government take action against Mr. Sterling? No, the NBA did based on their own bylaws. If he finds them unfair, he can counter sue. So, I’m unsure where exactly you feel your constitutional rights were violated.

Freedom of speech doesn’t mean you can say whatever you want without getting in trouble, it just means you can’t be stopped from saying it or punished by the law. If people want to sue, your boss wants to fire you, or the NBA wants to make you sell your team, then they have the freedom to say that as well.

First off, this was acquired by TMZ, so take it as you will. So Donald’s philosophy, which is heavily based in pure logic, is you should love people who aren’t white, but only in private. You can like them, but don’t take a picture with them, don’t hang out with them in public, and, most importantly, don’t bring them to his fucking games. Don’t worry, he’s not racist, he still loves them.

You can’t do these things not because he doesn’t want you to. No. This is apparently “how our world works”. Hey Donald, Christie wants to know if you’re stupid and Dr. Cox wants to weigh in on this.

But this is just a symptom of racism. If you think he’s the only one who’s done it recently, just take a listen to Cliven Bundy being a fucking dumbass and proving you wrong!

Sean Hannity of Fox News probably enjoyed that.

The FBI estimates approximately 2800 hate crimes were racially motivated. Since this introduces bias because you have to guess the motive, it is only a ballpark figure, but the point is it’s still happening. So, no more racism is over tweets and no more Clippers games. Fuck you Donald.

So someone was talking with me and pissed me the fuck off.  I played one of my raps for them and they asked me “Why are all rappers angry?” Why are we so angry?! Have you visited a hood? Look at the kids who don’t have meals. Look at the slips on our doors. Look at the guy getting beat by a cop just because.  Yeah, I don’t see any reason for us to be angry.

Rap is our expression. You guys had rock n roll, jazz, and even blues (or whatever you listened to).  To be honest, I haven’t really listened to enough of the music to be able to speak on the anger, but in the 90s I know rock took a darker angrier turn.  Every generation has their own way of expressing themselves.  As the poor get poorer and the hoods get more desperate, our raps are getting to get angrier because it’s our only outlet.

You may have noticed #CancelColbert floating around Twitter. This was caused by Comedy Central tweeting

screen shot 2014-03-28 at 9.51.50 am

And Twitter was furious. It should be pointed out that this was taken completely out of context.  Anyone who has seen the Colbert Report knows how highly satirical it is.  This was a a parody of Dan Snider’s Redskins Original Americans Foundation, and was poiking fun at the fact that he put the racial slur right in the goddamn title. Comedy Central deleted the tweet which, as you know, meant that absolutely everyone saw it.

Then things really got out of hand. Since this all started after his last show of the week, he had no chance to defend himself all weekend and the news got a hold of it. The New York Times. USA Today. CNN. Fox News. Everybody took their shots.

Now, for sake of argument, let’s pretend this wasn’t taken out of context. Stephen Colbert is a filthy redneck with a French sounding names who hates every yellow person alive (and pretend he tweeted it and Comedy Central didn’t). People are pissed. But hold on, I remember discrimination other places too.  A certain Fox News anchor once said the wife of the Boston Bomber should be in jail for wearing muslim attire.  #CancelFoxNews!! CNN said the N word multiple times (when put in context they were just reading texts or facebook posts about the story). #CancelCNN!!! But those hashtags never happenned.

Colbert did respond to these tweets last night to hear that you can go to Hulu, his website, or Google.

8-Why-People-Must-Stop-Complaining

Stop typing the word hypocrite. I know I am complaining right now about something pointless. I know that’s exactly what I am going to tell you you should stop doing.  The difference is that I understand these things are pretty much pointless.  You seem to think the whole internet needs to know such trials as a breakup or having a job.  Sorry, but I don’t care. That’s what you have friends for. Tweeting about it won’t help you. Now if you have some real problems, then by all means feel free to tweet.

What is a real problem? Your mom died. You became homeless. You are 7 years old and work in a factory. Things that seriously make your life worse. You could see how having a job or a breakup might not qualify.  So please keep it to yourself so we have less noise distracting us from real problems we need to fix.

Recently, a freshman at Duke university (pretty sure that isn’t her. Oh well) became a polarizing internet story when it was discovered that she was a pornstar.  Today, she decided to voice her opinion. I didn’t read it because I don’t really care.  Nothing personal to her, as I’m sure she’s a lovely lady, but I’m not mad at her. Thus, since this is my ranting blog, I have no need to read. All of you people who have assumed she’s a horrible person, why? Because she fucks people? Because no other college student does that…

But she does it on camera! What happened to our moral values? Which moral values? The “woman belong in the kitchen” moral values? That’s so much more respectful to the ladies! How could I have missed that? No, shut the fuck up.  You have no fucking clue who she is.  You have no fucking clue what she has been through.  I don’t either, but I’m willing to bet she’s a better person than you ignorant motherfuckers.

Why is she being singled out? Do you guys think she’s the only girl in college who has sex and videotapes it? Hell, she probably isn’t even the only pornstar in college using that to pay for her bills. At least she’s getting educated.  Would all you judgmental fucks do us all a favor and do the same? Thanks.

Lauren, if you ever get to read this. I support you. You seem like a smart girl who doesn’t need my pep talk. Don’t let the ignorant people change that.

Okay. Some of you guys are dumbasses.  Y’all complain about “all these hoes” when you called these women on your cell phone and said “We should hang out.” That makes sense.  You meet a good girl but go back to the other girls when she doesn’t give it to you in 0.5 seconds.  Ignoring the fact that girls are more than sex toys (I’ll get to that later), even toys require you to open the package, read the instructions, sometimes even assemble things.  I know you guys think you’re the hottest thing on the planet because of some chain or money or whatever, but just because she doesn’t give it up doesn’t mean she’s not interested.

Some girls like to do this crazy thing called “talking”.  You’ve done it before.  It’s when you exchange words with other human beings, taking time to listen to their responses.  This “talking” forms something called a “conversation”.  Now you might not be familiar with this.  This is where words that are exchanged, or “talking”,   center around at least one topic for an extended period of time.  This topic could be about something that happened during your day, a philosophy (Google it), or something you saw on TV.  I should be a communications professor.

Now that we understand that, we can move on to the “women aren’t your sex slaves” part of the discussion. You know these weird “feelings” things you have and how you react when they are hurt? It sounds corny and you can pretend they don’t ever get hurt, but either way you have them. Women aren’t immune to those.  In fact, they are more expressive of their feelings. They aren’t crying when the guys doesn’t call for fun.  They aren’t angrily telling you a story because they think we find it fun (although they wished we enjoyed it).  They’re not objects, they’re human beings.  Treat them like such.

Finally, just because they don’t give it up in 0.5 seconds doesn’t mean they ain’t interested.  They are trying to make sure when they do give it up, it’s to a man, not you.  What are you, you ask?  A boy. A small boy who is afraid of the challenge.  Did that hurt your pride? Good. Remember that next time you meet a quality girl.  No disrespect to those you call “hoes”, but they’re selling them short.  They deserve respect they just don’t demand it like they should for their own reasons.

Speaking of the women, don’t allow this to happen.  It’s the easy way out and it screws us good guys over.  We try to be all caring and affectionate and y’all be rocking them one night stands then tweeting “Why ain’t there no good guys left?” Bitch we’re right here! Stop dissing and friend-zoning the fuck out of us. Y’all ain’t exempt from the effort portion of this shit.  If you a hoe, you have forfeited your right to claim a lack of good guys.  Bitch, you ain’t paying us no attention.
