I gotta get back to writing on here. I work a lot, and I've been neglecting this site. Let's change that by kicking it up a bit with this internal training video from Burger King featuring one of my favorite rappers of all time. Enjoy.

I really need to write on this thing more often. I'm constantly seeing a barrage of things that would make for good material and drive home the point that this world cares very little for it's people, and in particular, cares even less for people who look like me. In today's edition of ridiculous racial profiling we see a man get stopped for the simple act of being black and exercising at night. As a black male in his 20's who has recently taken up jogging as a way to get back in shape, this has secretly been a worry of mine. Some people may ask about why he was exercising at night, who knows? He may have just felt inclined to go for a jog. This may be his only free time to do it. Either way, the cop comes up with the flimsiest reason to stop him and it's all on tape. Also, I think I might make this into a series called "we can't even....".

Did you know that the Gilbert,Arizona school district is very interested in keeping kids from having sex by not talking to them about sex? Did you know that they want kids to learn the hard truths about abortion? Now you know. Look and be amazed.

I don't need to tell anyone that racism is still a massive problem in this country. You could seriously just look at sites like World Star Hip Hop, any local news website or just walk outside as anyone who isn't a white dude. With that said, some of the more ridiculous and sneaky ways racism gets into our culture is through how we produce, consume and even try to stop people from consuming media. This ranges from cops being offended at NWA for saying "fuck the police" in the 1980's in response to the LAPD targeting minority communities and abusing people, to the LAPD still being offended by NWA for having a biopic that points out that the current environment of black people in particular not trusting the cops due to a string of unarmed people being killed by police officers on power trips. It's to the point that even TMZ is calling the cops bitter and resentful for being upset about an unflattering, yet true portrayal of life in southern California during the 80's to mid 90's. Adding to this is CNN, who being the bastions of fantastic journalism that they are, being absolutely shocked that black people aren't going on a rampage after spending $60.2 million over the weekend watching the pretty fantastic biopic of a rap group that I was probably conceived to. Watch below as apparently after almost 3 decades no one in, or supporting law enforcement in southern California listened to the song "Fuck the police" after the first half of the first lyric in the song. Also, it's racist to put tons of extra security at a movie aimed towards black audiences, but not at say "Trainwreck" or any of the Batman movies given the violence around both films.

We're well within the election season here in America despite the first primaries being months away and the actual presidential election being more than a year away. Of course, America isn't the only country with election fever. Up in Canada they're also electing new people to lead their government. In the ad below, we see Wyatt Scott put his best foot forward and explain to the people of British Columbia why they should be voting for him. His best foot involves dragons, aliens, robots and lasers. Be amazed at this ad below.

If you've never heard of San Francisco bay area rapper Lil B, you probably haven't been on the internet. The based god has been laying down rhymes, selling his albums and mixtapes independently, building a massive fan base and working with some of the biggest stars in hip hop for years. Earlier this year he made waves in the music and political industries when he publicly endorsed Hillary Clinton and then not too long afterwards, changing his mind and supporting Bernie Sanders. Earlier today, Lil B sat down with one of my twitter followers, CNN's Brooke Baldwin to talk music, politics and life. Check out the interview below.
