Donald Glover is IMPORTANT

glover620x345When I was a kid, I sat in the back of my parents minivan listening to NWA on my yellow Sony Walkman.  I was a suburban white kid who was mesmerized by “Fuck tha Police.”  I didn’t understand the significance of that song until much later in life.

Fast forward 30 years………

The hip hop/rap genre has become largely insignificant.  The strongest lyrical messages delivered by its current “stars” revolve around money, bitches, drugs and guns.  The genre has become a mumbling mess of disjointed beats accompanied by unimaginative, indolent lyrics.  It has become a caricature of its own stereotypes.

Their main struggle revolves around buying a hotter Lamborghini than the other guy.  It’s truly fucking sad.

Now enter Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino.

Like a beacon of hip hop hope, Gamibno released the most important song/video of the past 30 years…………. This is America.

Every person in America needs to watch this video.  It should be required learning in every school.  Just sit back, watch and know that Glover has a better grasp on the sad realities of America that you are scared to admit.

Donald Glover is IMPORTANT.  He is forcing our society to open its third eye and view America in a very unflattering lens.  An unflattering lens that is crystal clear.

Today, I can only hope that kids are sitting in the back of their parents minivans watching This is America on their cellphones.   And I can only hope that it doesn’t take another 30 years for them to understand its significance.

Dear Kayne (I’m also bound)

kayneDear Kayne,

Bound- something that limits or restrains (as defined by Merriam Webster’s online dictionary)

When it comes to you, the definition of bound feels incredibly real for me.  When I watched your video, I felt:

bound by the laws of gravity when I wanted to fly as far away from this planet as possible.

bound by the concept of restraint when I wanted to heave my computer screen into the ocean so no one in my home could ever watch that video again.

bound by the limits of fear while I cringed thinking about all the little boys and girls who want to be like you and Kim

bound by the reality that you weren’t the first hip hop dude to fuck Kim on video, that must absolutely kill you

I watched your interview on Ellen and was at first mildly impressed until you went all Kayne and shit and started babbling about how great you were.  I don’t care how many Grammy’s you have.

You know who else won a Grammy?: The Baha Men, Milli Vanilli and Christopher Cross won best album over Pink Floyd’s The Wall in 1981.  Even you would have to admit that the Grammy’s are a bit flawed.

If there is any doubt about your character and inflated view of yourself, here are a couple of quotes that came from your mouth:

“I feel like I’m too busy writing history to read it.” (from www.brainyquote.com)

“I am God’s vessel.  But my greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live.” (from www.brainyquote.com)

I’m pretty sure you just redefined the word “DOUCHE BAG”.  Kayne, you are yet another reason why China will win.

Here’s a link to Kayne’s new masterpiece: THE VIDEO FROM HELL

And here’s the hilarious parody video by James Franco and Seth Rogen: SO BRILLIANT

The Freedom to be Stupid

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.” Albert Einstein

I am an American and I would like to know what has happened to my country?

It’s wonderful to be free, but unfortunately, freedom often protects those who are complete fucking morons.

Here are some examples:

Case in point 1: Dumb-Ass North Carolina Rednecks

“Build a great big large fence 50 or 100 miles long. Put all the lesbians in there. Fly over and drop some food. Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals. Have that fence electrified so they can’t get out. You know what, in a few years, they’ll die out. You know why? They can’t reproduce,” said Charles Worley, pastor at Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, N.C.

Why won’t any reporter covering this story just say what should be said?

I want to hear someone on live television say, “Excuse me Pastor Worley, do you realize that you are a gigantic jack-ass and you are spitting in the face of evolution with your archaic beliefs and opinions?  Stop hiding behind your Bible, fucking your sisters, do the world a favor and slit your wrists immediately.” 

But sadly, no one has the balls to say that for fear of pissing someone off.  It’s ok to piss off assholes. Continue reading
