America’s heightened racial tension has been fueled by duns not votin’! “First & Second”

After the presidential election this past year Colin Kaepernick publicly admitted that he didn’t vote and there were tons of folks that were in agreement with him that votin’ wasn’t necessary. “Why do I need to vote? It’s pointless!” is what you heard from them. Now don’t get it twisted, I’m not blamin’ Kaepernick for this foolishness. I’m blamin’ all duns that refuse to vote for the condition that this country is in right now.

Well playas…the fact that people didn’t vote has us sittin’ here with an egg on our faces. Unfortunately, by not votin’, at every level, you’ve allowed chaos to ensue. We’ve got a president that is more concerned with keepin’ U.S. citizens from exercisin’ their constitution rights than he is in gettin’ U.S. citizens power in Puerto Rico. He’s more concerned about NFL players kneelin’ durin’ the national anthem than he is about practicin’ diplomacy with foreign leaders and solving’ those problems.

That’s not his fought bruh, it’s the fought of the people that refused to vote. He’s always been who he is. This has nothin’ to do with politics. This has everything to do with treatin’ folks with some decency and respect, not just in America but all over the world. We’ve always had either a Democratic or Republican president in our modern history. However, they’ve at least been able to govern without causin’ chaos in America and further dividin’ it’s own people.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Racial tension is at a 40 year high at the very least right now. Duns have been empowered to further hate because of the racial undertones that exist from the top down. It’s sad but this is what happens when you don’t exercise the power that so many died for us to have. When I say “us” I mean ALL Americans.

When you don’t vote at the national and local level it has an effect on every move you make. This isn’t brand new but it’s just stuck it’s head out of the ground and it’s screamin’ right now. The very reason why boyz are upset about police brutality, racial and social injustice in America has always been fueled by duns not votin’! The police chiefs, judges and prosecutors are all elected officials bruh. By not votin’ you’ve allowed folks to hold offices that don’t have your self interests in mind.

How is it that more than 60 percent of the population in Ferguson, Missouri was black yet 92 percent of the police force was white? Because boyz weren’t votin’. The prosecutor that put together the grand jury that allowed the officer to walk was elected because those same folks didn’t vote at the time. And yes, I know that that was pre this administration but my point is that not votin’ creates the type of foolishness.

Do you realize that the black man that was beaten half to death in Charlottesville by White Supremacists has been charged with a felony as well. The local judge issued a warrant for his arrest on Wednesday. Now you know it’s bad when a boy can be beaten within an inch of his life and he’s charged with a felony for bein’ attacked. You do realize that that judge was elected right?

We can avoid many of our problems by usin’ the power that we have been given in our right to vote.

In Jacksonville, Florida the Ku Klux Klan has been leavin’ flyers on folks doors that say, “notice to all Ni**ers: Any of you black apes caught ‘making eyes’ at a white girl will be beaten with bats and your mothers won’t get anymo’ bananas-That’s a promise.”

It’s NUTS!!!! Black folks have always known that racism was alive and well but now racism is makin’ sure that you know that it’s alive, well and in your face.

Some things we as a nation have the power to avoid and this was one of them. We’ve always had Democrats or Republicans in office and we’ve always been able to be, to some degree cordial. Now I realize that the philosophies have been different and within the three forms of government there has been in fightin’. However, it has been to a large degree along political lines and it hasn’t spilled out into the streets like this.

Now we’re bein’ divided more along racial lines and we’ve digressed 50 years and it’s sad. When there’s more attention bein’ givin’ to the act of the protest than to the reason as to why people are protestin’ in the first place, we’ve got problems. It’s a sad day when Americans can’t sit down and discuss the issues that are tearin’ us apart because we have no leadership. We have no leadership because duns refused to vote. I never thought that we’d get to a point where the national anthem would be the story line of every game played in the NFL.

Isn’t it funny that guns rights supporters will live and die on the Second Amendment! However, when black football players tell them that it’s their First Amendment right to peaceably protest it’s a problem? Let me ask you, how many people are bein’ killed by NFL players kneelin’ durin’ the national anthem? Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

3) Put it where the goats can get it: verb phrase – to make it as elementary as possible. To put it at ground level so everyone can understand it.

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”

No caption needed today bruh!
