Time for some FIRE!!! Just a rant by yours truly.




Every once in awhile I have to vent..... so pardon this brief indulgence. Because I made my presence known on the gossip blog, Crunk and Disorderly, I'm beginning to notice some Crunk supporters coming to this site and leaving pornographic pictures in the comment section which I cannot delete. Others are just leaving disparaging remarks regarding my beliefs, which I have no problem with, as I do not intend to censor anyone. However, if you plan to leave a comment be prepared to defend yourself because I will bring the fire. You may have noticed the photos of Paul Robeson and Biggie Smalls above. One represents the apex of Black achievement, the other represents.... I leave that up to the reader. But one thing that disturbs me about the direction that some in our community are taking us in, is this requirement that we must love hiphop and cast allegience to the alleged hiphop community....and with my experience with Crunk, I have had enough of it. I grew up on hiphop, jazz, funk and many musical genres. But the hiphop of old is NOT the hiphop that is being pumped into our consciousness in 2006. Crunk really hit it home for me that there is this Black group thought process that we are compelled to belong to....almost akin to Black folks having to vote democratic and it truly disturbs me. For some reason you can't think differently and you can't challenge anyone in this ghettofabulous realm. If someone wants to rep the ghetto lifestyle then so be it. But I am also aware of the excellence in scholarship and entertainment that Mr. Robeson stood for and I support that realm. Somebody has to. So, I welcome those with opposing viewpoints but be prepared to defend yourself. Everybody doesn't rep ghetto substandard beliefs nor should they be compelled to do so. We have choices and I hope you make the right one. Don't worry, you won't lose your Black authenticity card. If you think you lost it, try catching a cab in New York, that will be your reminder, just reconsider wearing your platinum grill and playing Yung Joc on your ipod if your lucky enough to catch that cab.

Have you ever taken time to notice that Crunk does not care about what it is that you are doing? While you are focused on every move they make no one is paying attention to you. Its really sad. Do you need a cyber hug? Are you that desperate for hits that plan on attacking a gossip blog for crying out loud? You are spending way too much time trying to turn hills into mountains.

I've been reading your site since it started but I don't plan to do so any more. I feel sorry for you.

It's too bad that you no longer plan to visit this blog as my intent is to inform the reader but I'm entitled to my opinion....and notice that I allowed your comment...Crunk deleted my comments and I felt that they should be placed on blast. Perhaps this site just wasn't meant for you...in the words of Jack Nicholson.."Sell crazy somplace else. We're all stocked up here." We appreciate intelligent content over here..again I think you were in the wrong place.

In defense of Afronerd, it does'nt matter if crunk does not care about this blog. Are you so entrenched in street bullsh*t and ghetto ignorance that you can't think for yourself? I can tell you, no one is focused on them nor needy for hits idiot. And by the way, floks are paying attention, although it may not be losers who enjoy crunk, but that's ok. It realli is'nt about grabbing the attention of drones like you anyway. This is about letting folks know that upper tier people of color are not about this crap. So don't bother coming back. Take your Young Jeezy cd, bag of weed, and your wic check and go back to crunk. This blog is too smart for your ass anyway...

You are so typical and predictable....What a shame.
