Swaggy P Gives Tips On Meeting Women, Don’t Listen To Anything He Says

swaggy.p

Nick Young's a millionaire NBA player. All he has to do to get women is send "Tryin' to get the pipe?" messages on Twitter. My advice for meeting women: Pull up next to her car at a stoplight. Just stare your ass off until she returns eye contact. Once she does, throw a rock through her window. But make sure it has your phone number and mugshot taped to it. She'll never forget you.

Mystikal’s First Song Since Wising Up And Leaving Cash Money

mystikal

Mystikal's the greatest rapper to wear a hair weave, but due to a few years away in the joint and a bias towards Southern rappers, he's never really gotten the respect he deserves as an MC who's been rapping at a high level for a long-long time. Here's his new one from Mark Ronson's upcoming album. It's not "The Man Right Chea," but pretty good nonetheless.

A Black Friday Boycott For Mike Brown Means Well But Accomplishes Nothing

black friday

I'm not a big fan of memes, except for some strange reason the one I posted last week featuring Kim Kardashian.  But the picture above has attracted a lot of attention on Facebook and Twitter in the day since it was decided by a grand jury not made up of Mike Brown's peers that Officer Darren Wilson was just in shooting the unarmed teen. People want to direct their anger somewhere, rightly so, and a Black Friday boycott is, on the surface, a well-meaning way to do that.

And I'm all for sitting out Black Friday, even if a new pair of Jordans comes out and I end up losing money that I often get from reselling to hypebeasts. But as a social movement a Black Friday boycott accomplishes next to nothing, especially if you're just delaying your holiday shopping for another day or week. To really make a mark we black folks and (according to Nielsen) our trillion dollar buying power would need to financially sit out the entire holiday season and have other pro-justice people join us. That means no gift buying for that terribly commercialized derivative of a pagan holiday we call Christmas.

Then you'd have an affect on public companies' earnings and increased media attention. But you would also help decrease consumer spending, which is the backbone of our economy, and could lead to job losses. Maybe even your own. A better plan? Support politicians and policies that decrease the militarization of police, encourage your local police force to hire officers who reflect the community that they serve, and tread carefully because The Man is often looking for a reason to shoot.

Woman Waving Gun & Claiming To Be ‘Ready For Ferguson’ Accidentally Kills Herself

becca.campbell.ferguson

The woman and her boyfriend were riding dirty in Downtown St. Louis, waving a gun and yelling "ready for Ferguson!" The gun got too close to the boyfriend and he ducked, which caused him to hit another car. The gun went off and being "ready for Ferguson" was no longer a concern. From Talking Points Memo:

St. Louis police were investigating an incident in which a woman waving a gun inside a vehicle and saying she was "ready for Ferguson" apparently shot herself in the head by accident, CNN reported Sunday...

The sources told CNN that the victim was involved in a car accident. Campbell's 33-year-old boyfriend, who was not identified, was driving the car and told investigators that Campbell began waving a gun around and joking that the couple were ready for Ferguson, the sources said.

The boyfriend said he rear-ended another car while ducking to avoid the gun, which then discharged and struck Campbell in the head, the sources said. The victim later died at a hospital.

The boyfriend told police that the couple purchased the gun because they feared unrest that may arise from a grand jury decision in the fatal shooting of unarmed black teen Michael Brown by a white police officer, the sources said.
