2020-09-07 (Black Lives Matter Edition Vol. 2)

Another Monday is upon us, motherfuckers and motherfuckerettes! Know what that means? Yet aNOTHER edition of Monday Morning Aural Fuckin’ Sex! This week, as made patently obvious by the fucking logo you likely saw already, is the second volume of the Black Lives Matter Edition. Yes, just like the My Favorite Ladies editions, I really just didn’t want to depart from this topic just yet. I compiled so much fuckin’ music for both of those in such a short amount of time, like, both of those are editions I should’ve done a long fuckin’ time ago. Sometimes the brain forgets to brain, ya know?

So, to introduce this edition, I’d like to address some of the arguments against the Black Lives Matter movement. First of all, and one of the supremely loathesome, “All Lives Matter…” Motherfucker, no one is denying that. The only time this argument comes up is as a retort to the notion of Black Lives Matter, as if there are some invisible words after “matter,” like, “matter more than yours,” or, “matter more than anyone else’s.” No, you dipshit-ass motherfucker. You’re adding words to a finished slogan. You’re seeing shit that isn’t there. BLM isn’t a black supremacy group, they just want justice and equality. You know, that shit that white people have widely been enjoying for fucking centuries now? Of course there are white people who’ve gotten their asses beaten and shot by the cops, but the proportion is pretty fuckin’ slanted against black people. Just take a brief look at how many white mass murderers were apprehended and jailed versus being gunned down at the scene. Then, take a brief look at how many black people have been killed for no probable cause whatso-fuckin’-ever. 

You say, “all lives matter,” and yet you’re bizarrely absent for this moment in which black lives are being destroyed damn near every goddamn day. Gee, I wonder why the fuck that is? No doubt you’re just a rugged individualist, and if you don’t get what’s owed to you (for whatever fuckin’ reason), then fuck everyone else until you’re taken care of, right? If you had a modicum of perspi-fucking-cacity, you would realize that black people aren’t your enemies. Like I said on the last edition, the real enemy is above you. Poor people fightin’ amongst themselves, petty racist bullshit and want not, the rich eat that shit like sugar on their fuckin’ cereal. (Fuck, that made me hungry.) But yeah, are you really so blind to think that Jeff Bezos isn’t laughin’ his ass off at all of us right now? Shit, I don’t know how he does anything else but laugh at us. Do you have any fuckin’ idea how many of the world’s problems he could solve forever with just a fraction of his funds? Is he doin’ any of it? Is he doin’ enough of it? Do we still have lots of fucked up shit going on around here? Thanks for comin’ to my fuckin’ TED talk.

That shit absolutely blew my mind during the 2016 election, people sayin’ Trump cared about them, or that he was/is down to earth. Motherfucker, to be a billionaire, you have to not give a flying fuck about your fellow man. To amass that much wealth, to not be single-handedly funding worldwide charities and social reform, it requires you to be fuckin’ indifferent to others. Billionaires are mentally fuckin’ ill with greed, and that shit is the most widely laudable illness in all of human history, so much so that they rationalize their way away from any negative connotations of the aforementioned greed. I’m sure no billionaire thinks of themselves as greedy or mentally ill. They most likely just consider themselves successful. Lemme tell ya, the state of fuckin’ success sucks right now, perverts. This is a human issue, not one of race. BLM isn’t even on that grand of an agenda. They just want police accountability, for fuck’s sake. That’s what you’re arguing against. I can guaran-fuckin’-tee you that if you’d gotten fucked up by a cop, or someone you care about or whatever, you’d be demanding accountability with every word out your mouth. I certainly wanted to when the cops lied during my trial. I was fuckin’ livid. I’ll tell y’all about that another time.

Anyway, I know this is already getting long, but another argument is, “Blue Lives Matter…” Motherfucker, blue is not a skin color unless you’re a fuckin’ Smurf. Okay? Again, nobody’s saying the cops lives don’t matter if black lives do. The two can exist at the same time. Wild shit, I know. Right? Two whole ideas existing at the same time. Again, it’s only about accountability. Fuck you if you’re somehow against accountability. That sounds like you’re hidin’ some shit, just like when motherfuckers plead the 5th, just like when motherfuckers give you a, “maybe,” to a yes or no question. Blue lives matter, eh? What’s the ratio of cops killed to black people? You think a cop has any issues getting employed because he’s a cop? No, exactly! Doesn’t make any fuckin’ sense, ‘cause he’s a cop! Already employed! You know what blue lives are supposed to do? De-fuckin’-escalate things. How much have we been seeing of that in Trump’s America? And yes, you fuckin’ idiots, this is Trump’s America no matter how hard he tries fear-mongering about Biden’s America by showing current events. You think protestors are gettin’ stomped and abducted at the mere suggestion that anyone besides Trump could be elected? If you actually think that, you really are lost. Just fuckin’ lost in that cult mindset.

One last one, “Defund the Police…” Motherfucker, cops are acquiring military leftovers. Are there fuckin’ wars going on in the streets of America? The drug war, of course. The only fuckin’ war goin’ on is the one on the poor. It’s the most nefarious one because it’s goin’ on largely unequipped with anything other than political power. But yeah, defunding the police is just about investing in other social welfare programs, like mental fuckin’ health. Take a look at the case of Daniel Prude if you want an example of how that could’ve helped him. It was said that he had PCP in his system, but not if he was an addict. Addiction, however, is indeed a mental and physical illness, and when you’re a fuckin’ hammer like the police just followin’ protocol, everything looks like a goddamn nail. It’s not to say that the police should be disrespected (‘cause shit, they’ll fuckin’ arrest or kill you for it), it’s just that other institutions that are more beneficial to certain cases should be more adequately funded so that they can help people the way they’re supposed to. That, and many police precincts need to be reformed at least insofar as they’re less fuckin’ deadly. Less racist would be lovely too, and somethin’ tells me the two would need to go hand-in-hand, but whatever.

Oh, and the shit the right is saying about Biden defunding the police is fuckin’ preposterous. Progressives, centrists, pretty much everyone other than Fox News knows that Biden has no such intentions whatsoever. In fact, precisely the fuckin’ opposite. Biden is not the first choice for many of us, nay even 7th, 10th, 50th. He’s what we’re stuck with, and I’d rather be stuck than fuckin’ enraged, depressed, or fuckin’ numb every goddamn day. I remember days from the not so distant past where political news was largely uneventful. I miss those relatively tranquil days, but at the same time, we’ve reached a tipping point where we just can’t return to normalcy. Shit needs fixin’ ‘round here. You can’t goddamn deny it no matter who you are or where you stand. The points where we differ are just what needs fixin’ and when, but again, the real enemy is fuckin’ above you, not beside you.

Anyway, I’ve spent the past hour writin’ all this fuckin’ shit, and it’s way too long, I know. I had some shit that needed sayin’. The stuff we’ll be hearing this week is largely celebratory in general with a couple sociopolitical commentaries peppered in. Yet again, I’ve organized the tracks (the track titles, mostly) in ways that make some semblance of sense to me in a magnetic poetry sort of way. I hope you notice and appreciate that little extra effort as much as I enjoy putting it in (giggity).
