Superstar point guard Derrick Rose has suffered a reported torn ACL injury during a playoff game Saturday against the 76ers. Derrrick Rose is unfortunately for the rest of year which is a huge blow to the Chicago Bulls and will undoubtedly have an unparalleled impact on the rest of the playoff series between the two teams and on the championship hopes of the Chicago Bulls. Below is link to an ESPN article describing the incident in greater detail.
So I read an article from the Huffington post in regards to the case of Howard Morgan, a black police officer(Detective) who was shot 28 times after being pulled over by four white officers in Burlington Illinois outside of Chicago. Morgan was driving the wrong way down a one way street while working off duty as a detective for a local railroad when he was pulled over by four white in which a reported altercation ensued where Morgan allegedly opened fired his weapon wen officers tried to arrest him which resulted in the four officers shooting him 28 times. Morgan strangely survived the hail of gun fire, BUT he was brought on several different charges including attempted murder of the four white officer that arrested him. Morgan went to trial and was found not guilty on some of the lesser charges against him, yet he is still up for trial on the charges of attempted murder. There is also clear instances of blatant evidence tampering on the part of the Chicago Police department which is unfortunate because the evidence could have possibly shed more light on to hat really happened and maybe prove Morgan’s innocence. Morgan goes to trial later this year and could face up to 80 years in prison if found guilty. This case blew me away because this is a case of of Cop on Cop violence that to me is another clear case of racial prejudice and assault. It’s hard to really put this case into words because it’s just way to many variables, but one questions stands out to me…how do you shot a cop 28 times and then bring him up on attempted murder charges??? It’s hard to understand this world sometimes and this country we call America but WOOOOOOOW COME ON DUDE!!! Below is a link to the article written in the Huffington post providing more details about the case. And sign the petition on change.org to drop the charges on Howard Morgan.
So Common and Drake firing SHOTS at each other now?? LMMFAO first and foremost this is probably one of the most ridiculous and random beefs I have ever seen. I mean fa real these two dudes are not even in the same genre of music if you ask me. Common makes that real classic Hip Hop and Drake mixes his music with a pop soul blend, but I say that to say this….WHY ARE DRAKE AND COMMON BEEFING allegedly Drake took a subliminal shots at common and his “wife” on Rick Ross’s mixtape joint “Stay Scheming.” COMMON went straight to wax and fired back VICIOUSLY and BLATANTLY by not only firing HEAT but even calling drake by name and speaking to him directly. Mad respect to common for going against the traditional “Rap Beef” and actually speaking another man’s name directly on a record. Many people are asking why is Common of all people involved in a rap beef??? Let me take you back to the 90’s when common wnet head to head with ICE CUBE and held his own, toe to toe, with the Westside G himself. Im not 100% what started this beef but i do know Common is a LEGEND and Drake is a LEGEND-in the making, and although I don’t encourage this type of shit I have to admit that talent level between these two MC’s is unreal, and i can’t wait to see what happens next. NO VIOLENCE though PLEASE fellas, let’s just stick to trading Lyrical bombs on wax and keep the real bombs tucked away. Below are two links to the the original “Stay Scheming” with Ross and Drake…and Common’s Remix version. You be the Judge and let me know what you think.

So On Friday December 23, Nike RE-RELEASED the Nike Air Jordan concord XI over 15 years after their original releases date, and of course as always black lost their GOTDAMN minds and showed their animal nature. Yesterday was a very sad day for black people. Not because that they went out and spend their own money on something that they wanted to purchase, but because of the unbelievably low levels that my people sank to over the pursuit of some cheap ass patent leather gym shoes. In several cities across America there were riots, fights, robberies, mace incidents and untold amounts property damage. Right now we are in one of the worst economic downturns in the last 80 years and millions of people are camping outside of malls and shoe stores for countless hours to spend $200 on some gym shoes. Now im not judging what people spend their hard earned money on, it’s the mindset and priorities that I have a problem with. Black people have this “Look at em now” Shiny object syndrome that America has implanted in our minds and we have gravitated towards like moths to eternal money draining flame where the corporations only have to create a false idea of short(limited) supply and people will sell their own child just to have what these companies are selling. It’s sad to say the very least, and unfortunately it will probably continue. Black people need to wake up and open their eyes to the truth…and let this coon ass behavior die out. 40 years ago Black people use to line up for sit-ins, political rally’s, and civil rights demonstrations….now we line up for Jordans???? GET THE F**k OUTTA HERE.
