Seriously, Let's Be Honest...


I know the majority of people who peruse my blog saw the showy display of foolishness Kanye exhibited last night so there is no need to recap exactly what he did. What I want to talk about is all of the people REALLY acting like what he did was ok and that everyone should just laugh it off as just another Kanye moment.

The truth is, he KEEPS behaving like a clown ass fool because no one has hauled off and punched him in his mouth yet. One good sock to the dome and I bet he'll stay in his lane.

Now, regardless of who you might personally feel should have won that award, don't let that be the reason for you pardoning disrespectful acts towards another person. First off, if you don't listen to country music, it would make sense that you would not have voted for Taylor Swift. If you are a Beyonce fan, it would make sense why you wouldn't have voted for ANYONE else in that category but ANYONE who CHOOSES to stand before someone and say NOTHING was wrong with what he did...that makes you an ass clown too.

Imagine if that was one of your children...hell, if that was you! You or your child has the opportunity to express gratitude for winning something for the very first time and some jackass comes up and ruins THE ENTIRE MOMENT by saying someone else deserved to win. First off, THAT IS AN OPINION, NOT A FACT TO BE USED IN A NON-DEBATABLE ARGUMENT. Personally, I do not think Beyonce should have won the award because I didn't like that video...and the song is an anthem far too many women sing in an effort to FORCE a man to give them something they 9 times out of 10 don't deserve. Yeah, Beyonce has a ring but did you ever stop and think that MAYBE she deserves it? You scallywag, who does nothing but bitch, complain, and nag the man you're with, that isn't you. But we're getting off the point...

According to a good handful of buffoons "Kanye said what everyone was thinking". Everyone who? Don't speak for ALL Black people and DEFINITELY don't speak for all music lovers because WE ALL weren't thinking that retard shat. Some people ACTUALLY respect all genres of music, regardless of how much we listen to them, so no, WE ALL weren't thinking that. Anyone who said that, go sit down in the corner next to Kanye for generalizing on some bullshat.

So I am positive that Twitter will be chock full of people commenting on White people's reactions to what Kanye did to Taylor Swift (she's White in case you didn't notice). People...this is an "L" we're gonna have to take because have SOME sense and think about if this was the other way around. Imagine if some BIG A-list White celebrity would have ran up on the stage while Rhi Rhi was accepting an award stating that their "homie" should have won instead. All the racist hates would have come flying out the closet, Al Sharpton would have been called, and Twitter would have been set ablaze with racial remarks about how White people don't want us to have ANYTHING. Am I lying? If you say yes, that makes YOU a liar. It happens ANYTIME someone Black gets "mistreated" in the media.

I'm not saying that today, this week, or this month, White people get a pass to throw every Black person under the bus. No. I have VERY low tolerance for ANY type of unnecessary racially tinged remark coming out of anyones mouth, no matter what their color is. However, what I am saying is if some White people are mad that a Black person shatted on one of their country stars, reverse the roles and realize, they are human beings too.

Kanye caused a mess. Period.

He put Beyonce in a bad position...she did nothing wrong but had to apologize to Taylor to save face, or go down in flames with his silly ass. He owes MTV, Taylor, and Beyonce PERSONAL apologies...not some shat he hastily went and typed on his blog to take some of the heat off himself.

So am I gonna be all dramatic and throw away every cd I've purchased of his? No. I don't throw money away and Kanye's random outbursts do not control my ability to recognize good music when I hear it. However, he does get a permanent side eye until he learns some self-control and chooses to display the manners his mother taught him.

Yeah the racial comments are already falling around online.Technology gives folk a lot of courage and Kanye just gave them another mega dose.

I also found it funny cuz Kanye would not have disrespected someone who was capable of slapping the shit out of him.

Assertive Wit said...

NightFall914 me and Babybottoms dad came to that conclusion last night LOL

Boca Flaca said...

i posted last night on Facebook that what the dude needs in his life right now more than anything is a clip to the mouf!

great minds....

Good call on the "Kanye would not have disrespected someone who was capable of slapping the shit out of him."
I love Kanye and I love the way he consistently does and says whatever he feels like. Even though I do think it was funny, it was a pretty effed up thing to do. I checked his blog just now and he posted this:
"I feel like Ben Stiller in "Meet the Parents" when he messed up everything and Robert De Niro asked him to leave...That was Taylor's moment and I had no right in any way to take it from her. I am truly sorry."
I'm sure the bottle of Henny he was carrying around last night had all to do with the outburst.

Hard Work said...

Ok, I'm going to tastefully disagree...

1) Kanye is known for these antics... did I laugh my ass of what he did? Of course he did... I'm an asshole and think things like that are funny...

2) I don't understand why race keeps getting brought into it (ok, I do but don't understand why it's the driving force behind it...) Last night Twitter was SET ABLAZE with all kinds of "nigger this" and "nigger that" comments and it doesn't sit right with me... and I'm not even one of those dudes who gets angry anytime a white person uses it, but too many people decide to hide behind a screen name and say some wild ignorant shit and it's not right...

3) Beyonce did that whole video in ONE TAKE... that alone is reason why she should've gotten Female Video of the Year...

and 4) I don't understand how she had the video of the year but not the Female video of the year... it's like if you're a football player and you win MVP, you should win Offensive Player of the Year too... LOL... it doesn't make sense for it not to happen that way... (of course this was all after the fact, but I'm just sayin'...)


So, needless to say, Kanye was a fool for his actions and has since, apologized many times... I say it's time everyone moved past it but I'm glad it happened so all the closet racists could come out (something that always seems to happen whenever a Black man gets "out of pocket")

Assertive Wit said...

L, I LOVE his music and I think he is EXTREMELY talented at what he does but I'm not such a big fan that I can't see when he's being a dick...which happens when he's sober too LOL

some people blamed it on his mother passing...nope, he was a dick before that.

there are people in the world who have a sense of self-entitlement and they walk around like the rules specifically do not apply to them; unfortunately that isn't reality and you end up with situations like what happened at the VMA's.

Hard Work, Is this "normal Kanye behavior"? Yes, you'll get no argument from me there. Does it EVER make it right? Hell no.

I personally didn't think it was funny because it was SO disrespectful AND rude. In the past, he CONSTANTLY complained about people not respecting his craft and what he does and how he deserved certain awards in the past but then shits all over this Taylor Swift's moment. It's funny to be a BLATANT hypocrite? Okay...I know NEVER to compete in anything with you Hard Work LOL

Race was not the driving force behind my blog so I think that's a misplaced comment LOL

As for Beyonce, AGAIN, THAT'S AN OPINION THAT SHE HAD A GOOD VIDEO. Everyone is entitled to FEEL how they want about who should have won. That gives NO ONE the right to jump on stage, take the mic from the winner and announce what they PERSONALLY feel should have taken place. Again, rude and disrespectful. If you got a promotion over someone who appeared to be more qualified for the position and someone felt the need to announce that at a company meeting, how pissed off would you be? As for Beyonce winning an award that was tantamount to the award she didn't win earlier, ok. It's a voting process; get mad at the muthacluckas who were involved in the voting. It isn't right to take it out on the person who happened to win.

When I wrote this blog, Kanye had not apologized MANY times for his actions; it had JUST happened and I posted it the next morning. I'm NEVER glad when something like this happens because regardless of color, EVERYONE needs to act like they have some damn sense. There is a time and a place for everything and that wasn't the time nor the place for him to be forcing his opinion on others.

As for his apologies, I'd rather SEE him doing better than giving weightless apologies. Unlike Chris Brown and Mike Vick (who grossly offended the public with one particular incident), this retard CONTINUOUSLY shows his ass and then "apologizes" for it. I had a friend like this...I eventually stopped hanging out with her because really, how many times are you supposed to get a pass for being an asshole simply because you said "Sorry"?

And NONE of what I said has anything to do with him being Black...people of all races, nationalities, etc, can develop a form of self-importance so big that their ego's replace their self-control and common sense.

VerbFashion said...

You make a good point about PEOPLE who walk around with this sense of self-entitlement. I was shocked to see that PEOPLE turned into all BLACK PEOPLE feel like they have a sense of entitlement due to history.

I also have a huge problem with the statement Kanye set "us" back some hundreds of years (not posted in this blog, but others very near you). I agree this is an "L" we have to take in terms of comments being made because if the roles were reversed Sharpton would surely be headlining some news station.

The shit was rude and ridiculous. Period.

AND for damn sure agreed (in terms of who should have won)...

"Everyone who? Don't speak for ALL Black people and DEFINITELY don't speak for all music lovers because WE ALL weren't thinking that retard shat."

Black Yoda said...

Kanye was wrong. No doubt about it. I know some people said he only did that because it was Taylor Swift and that he wouldn't have done that to someone with more of a physical presence. The suggestion here is that his actions were rooted in sexism. Maybe so. But he does have a record of speaking out of turn. Also, I'm not sure which MTV award recipient would be the alpha male capable of putting Kanye in his place. All in all, I think this is just another pointless distraction. I did think it was funny that the president commented on the situation. Apparently, the president has no problem calling one college dropout who's on the radio a "jack-ass". What would he say to the rest of them? Hmmmmm.....

Assertive Wit said...

VerbFashion, Kanye didn't set me back nowhere *laughing inside* because unlike his 'tard azz, I KNOW how to act in public AND I would NEVER behave like he does. My parents taught me manners (as I am sure Donda did with him) and I use them on a day-to-day basis. LOL

Black Yoda, I think you're reading too much into things when you say "the suggestion here is that his actions were rooted in sexism". A physical presence does not necessarily have ANYTHING to do with the sex of someone. Serena Williams has a physical presence that I would NEVER test...she's a woman last I checked. When people were saying that, I believe it was in reference to, Kanye not trying that on someone who he knew he couldn't get away with it on. He would have NEVER done that to Mary J. Blige or Pink.

As for your comment about the President...huh? President Obama didn't call him a jackass because he dropped out of college; he called him a jackass because HE WAS BEING A JACKASS by interrupting someone's award speech like what he had to say was more important. Kanye dropping out of college had nothing to do with his inappropriate behavior at the VMA's...

Sometimes you be coming out of left field, dude.... LOL

Black Yoda said...

I said some people (not necessarily you) have said that he did it to Taylor Swift because he saw an easy target (female, in some cases a white female). He wouldn't have done that if it were a guy, a burly dude in particular, and therefore they conclude that his actions were rooted in sexism. I've heard it from several bloggers. Some people say he did it because she was a stranger and he wouldn't try it on someone he knew. Again, it's all speculation. I'm not sure if either is the case, but I wouldn't rule them out either.

You missed the entire point of my president comment. Let me explain it. The president seems to have no problem calling Kanye West a jack-ass. My point is there are other outspoken (even more so), college dropouts you can hear on the radio everyday who are attacking him, the office and the people who voted for him using media platforms that are far-reaching and much more damaging than some stupid MTV award show. I've yet to hear a single word (on or "off the record"). The comment is an indirect way of saying, "Stop attacking soft targets while remaining silent when the big, bad wolves start to huff and puff." My point is the description of Kanye applies to a lot of people and we don't see nearly as much moxy coming from the president in regard to them.

Not so left field when you think about it.

Jay_fever said...

Everybody has already said pretty much everything I would say...and I'm sure you don't wanna keep replying the same stuff...So I'll just say this.

I wish we had a Kanye back when The Color Purple got snubbed at the Oscars...I'm just sayin

Assertive Wit said...

Black Yoda, oh, I know you weren't applying that assumption to me because I didn't bring that up in my blog. You made an assumption though based on stuff that isn't relevant to my blog. I didn't mention sexism so it is out in left field to bring it up.

As for your comment regarding the president, that's from out of left field because NO ONE was talking about that but you. There isn't any point to get because my blog wasn't about President Obama and his personal opinions on Kanye or anyone else for that matter. You're bringing up something that was stated off the record anyway. NOBODY knows what context that statement was made in and what led up to him saying it. If someone asked him what he thought about what Kanye did and he answered it, that's simply him answering a question. You attaching all this "deepness" to a rather insignificant comment made on the President's behalf IS out of left field and very irrelevant to my blog.

Just stay on topic and we'll be good :)

Jay, I'm glad he wasn't around for that moment. Some things/actions are just inappropriate, regardless of how we feel about someone or something taking place. There is a time and a place for everything and Kanye needs to learn and respect that.

Black Yoda said...

I'm giving you my take on the situation. To be honest, there isn't enough of a situation to warrant a whole big controversy. Kanye was rude...again. Who was surprised? The "jack-ass" tag has become very popular after Obama used it so I think it is very relevant to putting the situation in context and that is much more interesting TO ME (imo) than talking about Kanye's rude behavior as another isolated incident. Again, I'm giving you my take on the whole situation and it's not confined to what's in your blog. Your blog isn't the final word. It's just one of many that I like reading. I would go into more detail about the relevance of my statements, but you'd probably just delete it :-) How about this? I'll restrict my comments on your blog to what's written only in your blog and you stop assuming you know where I'm coming from. Then we'll be good :-)

Assertive Wit said...

Black Yoda, I deleted your comments on my other posting because you will continue to aggressively push your opinion with this "know-it-all" air and it gets irritating. This is MY blog and you don't have to like ANYTHING I write here but when people comment on things I write, I read those comments expecting them to be relevant to what I'm writing about, otherwise, you can go write whatever you want on YOUR blog. If you want to discuss something OUTSIDE of what is in my posting, you can email me. My blog is not the final word on ANYTHING because everyone is entitled to an opinion but I do not write my blog to discuss what YOU want; I write to discuss what is of interest to me, hence, why it's MY BLOG.

If the first thing I think EVERY TIME I read your comments is "WTF is he rambling about?" that isn't me assuming to know where you are coming from; that's me just not knowing at all. My writing is not complex at all and it doesn't require over analyzation. You aren't doing me any favor by restricting your comments to the relevant topics but you would be doing me a favor if you took your superior attitude somewhere else.

Since I can't block someone who is following me anonymously, feel free to unfollow. I will delete your comments from this point forward. Thank you.

Hard Work said...

Sorry I'm just getting back to your response and I agree, it's not the correct behavior for an adult but I also think Kanye has needed some psychological evaluation for quite a while... I don't think he does these things to make people laugh... I think he does it because he just feels really passionate about things and feels like he should make it known... but after seeing him on Leno, dude obviously feels like he made a major mistake which ISN'T very Kanye-like... I definitely see your points and I hope Kanye takes care of it soon...

Earned Arrogance said...

What did you all think when Kanye said "Bush doesn't care about Black People" who was on the internet calling him an asshole then?

Assertive Wit said...

Earned Arrogance, I can't speak for everyone who commented on my blog but my personal view on his random blurting out that "Bush doesn't care about Black people" was that it was inappropriate as well. As I've stated to others before, there is a time and a place for everything and Kanye needs to learn that, regardless of whether what he's saying is "right" in his mind or anyone elses.

Post a Comment

Be fair & civil in your commenting. If you can't manage that...well be unfair & rude and I'll respond. Yes, those are your only two options :)
