Everyone identifies themselves with some group politically, socially, culturally etc. There are always cases of people in one of the groups you particularly identify yourself as that do some things to make everyone else in that group look bad. I thought I would after an incident on the Manhattan bound E-train start a series to address people who make things look bad for not only humanity but also distinct portions of the population. I am honored to start this series with someone I still cannot understand why is popular: Lil Wayne.
Lil Wayne Incident w/ the Thunder
The rapper created a stir Thursday night by posting on Twitter that he was “going to go to the Thunder game tonight but was denied by the team to be in their arena.” Thunder spokesman Dan Mahoney says Lil Wayne’s representatives did contact the team requesting tickets but insisted that he sit on the front row, and none of those seats was available. Oklahoma City sold out every home game during the regular season and playoffs this season. Mahoney says: “We’d love to have him at a game, but like anyone else, he needs a ticket.”
The fact that he still has a career is amazing, but to be called by the associated press an icon is beyond me. According to the iconoclastic rapper two Thunder players — Kevin Durant and James Harden— had reached out to offer him tickets to Saturday’s fourth game of the Western Conference Finals. But that’s not the point you see:
“It’s the players stepping up but of course the players aren’t white. I don’t want to be sitting there on behalf of you and I’m sitting next to a (person) that’s like ‘I don’t want this (guy) sitting next to me.’ (Forget) you … I’m in Forbes,” he said, laughing.
I think that Lil Wayne’s attempt to make this into something about race ? A team spokesman has said Lil Wayne’s representatives insisted that he sit in the front row, and none of those seats were available. Oklahoma City sold out every home game during the regular season and playoffs. You see you may not know this but dimunitive Wayne coming to the basketball game is an act of infinite mercy. He said he felt welcome at other arenas including Miami, and likes being able to energize players — many of whom are fans of his music — on their home court.” That’s like me [Lil Wayne] going on stage and … seeing LeBron (James) in the crowd with his hand up. I’m going to perform a little bit harder,” he said.
According to really tall negro and 3 time scoring champ Kevin Durant: “It was just a misunderstanding. We were sold out of tickets, I heard, and we didn’t come through,” Durant said. “He knows a few of us on the team and he knows it’s nothing like that. We offered him tickets to tonight but he had to do something. He’s a superstar in his own right, so he can’t just pick up and go to a game.”
I was shocked when I went on a epic road trip from NYC to Las Vegas. Most Americans from the mid-West look like they grew grown in the Aisle of Dr. Moreau, hillbilly low-life, sweating-gravy, sibling-fucking motherfuckers. Most Americans think that what they see on TV is true, looking at the Jersey Shore I can see why people don’t believe in evolution. However I feel if you make enough movies showing for instance Mexicans worshiping Picante Doritos (the son of Corn born from a virgin plant) many people wills tart to believe that Doritos are evidence of the second coming of Christ and Mexicans will comprise his new and improved apostles)
I think our idiot celebrities really make it worse for us. Their actions don’t just reflect on themselves it reflects really on everyone in the group they are most easily identified with. If I get looks next time I am in the good seat on the bus, I will show everyone my metro card receipt taped too my ballsack, and rectify any incorrect image that people who tape things to their genitals as means of communication, actually pay regular fare like everyone else!
