Nailah Blackman, the granddaughter of the late Lord Shorty aka Ras Shorty I recently launched a single “SOKAH” with its catchy chorus lines and gyrating waistline will make any winer boy want to “wine”.
Most likely you are familiar with the scent. Enter an empty elevator, and there are 2 scents that are easily recognizable: the lingering smell of a smoke break and Calvin Klein’s Obsession for Men. For some wearers Obsession is more obsessive to the wearer than those around him. Nowhere is that more true than in the wild.
Happy 4th of July.
I pride myself on being an independent and moderate regarding my political views and have voted for candidates on both sides of the aisle in previous elections.
Recently on my Facebook feed, I came across several posts stating that #45 is the most criticised president in history and we need to respect him and the office.
To these folks, I say fuck that and here is why:
- Respect is earned not given. Trump’s first statement announcing his candidacy for presidency contained language that is hateful, despicable and misguided. As an immigrant, his first official public statement was a non-starter for me.
They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists, and some, I assume are good people, but I speak to border guards and they tell us what we’re getting.
- Birtherism: For eight years #45 was a supporter of birtherism and its most blunt spokesperson. He has not in my opinion wholeheartedly apologised to #44 or the American people for his belief in this conspiracy conjecture.
- Fear: Trump is courting our worst fears about people of colour, immigrants and crime. He’s also cultivating the Christian and the ALT right crowds with his dog whistle of race dominance. His inability to rebuke the white supremacy organisations in Charlottesville, Virginia for me displayed the iniquitous heart of his purported Christian dogmas. It’s unfathomable to me how “genuine” Christians can support a person with such a bogus character.
President #44 was by no means flawless. Some of his policies I didn’t agree with but as a father, man and the leader of the free world he will be judged by history to be more triumphant than #45.

First, please bear with me as I set the tone with a bit of personal history about times gone by.
