A Hell of a Year

So this year has been full of unexpected surprises. I had expected to take my plans in a completely different direction this year, but looking back on it now I’m glad I didn’t. Over the course of the election year I found myself reluctantly emerging as one of the top election influencers/commentators of the season.

The Shame Game (Morality and why shaming tactics wont work on me)

If you’ve followed along with me on social media this year, you’ve noticed one thing – people seem to have a big issue with my tweets, whether it’s the topic or the way I present it. I’m brash, I’m vulgar, I’m “offensive” & all the thing moral justice warriors hate while acting like they are perfect little angels in private. It’s sad just how easy it’s proven to be to rile up emotions of people these days, all off of words on a phone/computer screen.

Rapper Syndrome (Gunz n Butta)

Money being thrown, nice cars that haven’t come out yet doing donuts, women twerking wearing more jewelry than clothing – these are the type of things you typically see in a rap video. Now, rap music/culture is a facet of nig nog culture and has multiple facets in itself, but as of right now I’m referring to nig nog rap.

The Media is always lying to you

Over the last few weeks we’ve seen the Old Media and the New Media go back and forth on the topic of Hillary’s health. Some people may not think it’s a big deal but to anyone actually interested in the future of this country, we’d rather not be inaugurating our next President on her deathbed.

Dead Center: An Analysis

It’s been quite an interesting year for me, one I haven’t expected myself honestly. I expected to start taking baby steps this year and just start getting momentum by the end of the year, but by the middle of 2016 my name was already starting to spread a bit.

Break the System

So it’s definitely been a hell of a last couple days.

Between cops shooting people and people shooting cops, the tensions in this country are running dangerously high. Emotions are at a high right now and the pot has been constantly stirred by recent events. The divide between people right now is bad, and it’s only just beginning.

Is Trump Racist? Let’s take a look

As the now infamous “Here’s 10 Examples of Donald Trump being racist” that is the go-to rhetoric for the anti-trump crowd when asked to prove his racism was making its way around the net, I read it a few times it was posted and a lot of the article stood out to me.

Victor, not Victim

Honestly I’m gonna start this off by saying that in it’s current state, the world is annoying. Simple as that. You can’t eat, breathe, sleep or talk without someone somewhere giving their opinion on what they would have done better.

The Oppression Olympics

Well it’s the summer of 2016 and as most of you have already seen, the Oppression Olympics are in full swing. If you’re unfamiliar with the concept, it’s basically the battle that different minorities and groups go through to try to prove that they’re more oppressed than the rest, and as such deserve special treatment.

Nig Nog Culture

Heh, the nig nog.

This is a topic I’ve been through quite a few times on twitter as it gives me plenty of ammo to analyze and critique the nig nog in its natural habitat. Now don’t get me wrong, nig nog isn’t a strictly black thing, it’s just that 99.9% of the nig nog population I’ve seen has been so. I grew up in and surrounded by the culture, so a lot of this I can either relate to or attest to, and that’s why I feel like I’m qualified to do this post.
