Killer Mike Lets Us Know He Didn’t Actually See Black Panther in His Appearance on NRA TV

So, I log on to Twitter yesterday expecting everyone to be talking about Netflix’s new movie Roxanne Roxanne when I realize the Internet is actually buzzing about Killer Mike’s appearance on NRA TV.

In case you aren’t familiar with Killer Mike, he’s a rapper turned political caricature. I honestly cannot tell you what song he’s best known for, and I can’t tell you about his lyrical prowess. I, can, however, tell you about how he used his Blackness to accessorize Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign. I can also tell you about how he criticized the two Black women activists who interrupted Sanders’ Seattle rally in August 2015. I can tell you about how he slammed Clinton’s response to the #BlackLivesMatter interruption while implying that Sanders’ response was polite and welcoming, even though the Black women who interrupted Sanders vehemently disagreed with Mike’s account. I can also tell you about how he said that a uterus doesn’t qualify a person to become president, reducing Clinton’s more than 20-year career in politics to an organ that denotes her femaleness and not her actual credentials.

I can’t understand why Killer Mike, who claims to support the equality of Black people would attach his brand to an organization that has worked to perpetuate the fear of Black people. Click To Tweet

Following a long line of questionable political choices, Killer Mike decided to lend his voice to the NRA in support of gun ownership. Feel how you feel about guns, I am not going to argue Killer Mike’s stance. I will, however, argue against his choice to support yet another political machine that does not at all care about Black people. I can’t understand why Killer Mike, who claims to support the equality of Black people would attach his brand to an organization that has worked to perpetuate the fear of Black people which has led to so many unarmed Black men and women being murdered by over-zealous gun owners.

I know he remembers the NRA’s silence after the murder of licensed gun owner Philando Castile at the hands of Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez (who by the way was acquitted for his crime last summer). And he has to remember mommy-blogger turned NRA Spokesperson, Dana Loesch’s call for “action” against people who went against Trump to which the Black co-president of the Women’s March, Tamika Mallory, responded with an open letter denouncing what was clearly a call for violence against Black and Brown people.

Historically, that 2nd amendment everyone loves to pull out to support gun ownership has always been centered on White gun ownership, and most of the gun control regulations passed (with the support of the NRA) have been done to limit gun ownership by people of color. In case you don’t believe me, check out History Channel’s article about the NRA’s complicity in Regan-era Mulford Act.

Y’all think Killer Mike knew all of this before he sat on NRA TV and used whatever credibility he has left to support an organization that seems to be directly opposed to everything he claims to stand for?

To add insult to injury — as if all of this wasn’t bad enough — this fool had the audacity to say they had guns in Wakanda, which only tells me that he clearly didn’t see Black Panther. They have Vibranium in Wakanda, you dummy, why would they need guns?

Wendy Reveals That NeNe Leakes is Leaving Real Housewives of Atlanta

mm

Published

on

According to Wendy Williams, NeNe Leakes is quitting Real Housewives of Atlanta. Can’t say that we’re surprised after she’s been missing from several episodes this season. Wendy was in the middle of sitting down with Jerry O’Connell when she revealed that she received a text message from NeNe saying that she was quitting the show. Wendy says she received a text from NeNe that morning between commercials.

Wendy tried to hold back tears and said that NeNe has a big secret that she won’t reveal and that NeNe. The secret apparently would “melt their hearts” and is a huge thing. O’Connell asked if it had anything to do with Greg’s health, she replied that Greg was cured and that he was fine. She didn’t say much after that and tried to move on but you could see that it was bothering her.

It makes sense that NeNe would leave Real Housewives of Atlanta considering how many episodes she has missed this season. It was rumored that she would be suspended for 3 or 4 episodes after allegedly putting her hands-on production during last season’s episode. Take a look at the clips of the show below.

Do you think NeNe is leaving the show?

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the cult-classic show ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’, Chicago hip-hop duo Zaena x Jason Maek travel back in time for their new music video “TIkTok”. The self-directed adaptation features cameos from Danielle Cohn, Joey Klaasen, and 18 of your favorite TikTok stars with a combined reach of over 100 million followers.

The video highlights moments from the original show, including The Fresh Prince spinning on the throne, shooting some b-ball outside the school, and being chased by his grandmother. The 2 ½ -minute-long project is the largest collaboration between TikTok content creators. Appearances include Danielle Cohn, Joey Klaasen, Jiffpom, Enochtrue, Jasmine Gonzalez, Jake Maldonado, Ryan Shakes, Zayla Shakes, Tyler Brown, Justin Blake, Adam Sheey, Oliver Moy, Marcus Olin, Beasteater, Ayypatrick, Nicki Baber, Alex Holem, Damian K, and Harlem Globetrotter Crissa Ace.

Zaena x Jason Maek have a history of creating hilarious music videos. Putting a spin on ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ was a no-brainer for the duo.

“The Fresh Prince is my favorite show of all-time,” said Zaena. “We wanted to bring it to life for a new generation using faces they would recognize. Our goal was to recreate everything from the extended intro, including the airplane scene that was cut out later. There is a little ‘Parents Don’t Understand’ in there also.”

According to Jason Maek, “We had so much fun on set with everyone. We flew everyone out to Chicago and got the video done in two days. It was an ambitious project, but we wanted to kick the new year off right with something refreshing.”

There are also a few other key moments to spot. Athletic brand Wilson premiered their Fresh Prince inspired basketball in the video. MVMT watches and Vita Coco also debut new products in various scenes.

“TikTok” is the first single from Zaena x Jason Maek since completing their sold-out tour titled “The Freshman Tour”. The track is available on YouTube, Spotify, and all other streaming platforms.

“Cardi B for Congress” Has Conservative Twitter PRESSED!

mm

Published

on

Cardi B is contemplating a run for office according to a series of tweets published this past Sunday, January 12. Unsurprisingly enough, she is already battling hate from all across the aisle. 

“I think I want to be a politician. I really love government even tho I don’t agree with Government (sic),” the New York rapper said in a series of tweets. “Like I was watching war documentaries. No matter how many weapons a country have you need people! How are you trying to go against a country and possibly start a war when this country lacks patriotism? I barely see people claiming the LOVE being American.”

 

The rapper then went on to say she will have to explain more at a later date, possibly in a video. After publicly endorsing Vermont Senator and progressive Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in 2019, Cardi was lauded for showing us the “woke” side of her image. 

On Tuesday, the rapper found herself in numerous Twitter spats, especially with right-wing accounts. Mindy Robinson, a conservative political pundit, commented on Cardi’s post with several drawn-in grammatical corrections. Despite Cardi admitting on Sunday that she would need more schooling before she could seriously enter politics, Robinson ended her tweet with “you need more than that.” In a later comment, she declared that her “cat is more qualified to run for Congress than Cardi B.”

 

Cardi, whose given name is Belacalis Almánzar, is no stranger to Twitter beef and quickly had an answer for Robinson. “Leave me alone. I didn’t insulted your party or your believes so please don’t try me and let’s keep sweet OK….don’t want to dog walk you,” she replied before unleashing a savage string of jabs toward the internet personality. 

 

While a dog walk sounds like a peaceful way to spend quality time with your beloved pooch, for Cardi, it is a serious threat – one we’ve heard before. You will recall in January of 2019 she warned Tomi Lahren, another conservative pundit, to leave her alone, lest she gets dog walked. Just as in the feud with Robinson, Cardi was minding her own business on social media Tomi Lahren attacked her for her views. Her comments lit a fire in the rapper and the two engaged in a back and forth lasting several hours. 

 

Obviously Robinson did not get the message a year ago that Cardi B has the time to argue with internet trolls because she found herself in the same predicament as Lahren did – potentially discovering what it’s like to “dog walk” with Cardi. 

 

Check out the best of both feuds below and let us know what you think.
