It wasn't that long ago, when Pusha T reminded some and showed the reest of the world Drake in Black Face. Some of us accepted it. Some of us made excuses for him, while others did not give him a pass on that reckless behavior. So it's with that in his recent past that makes me call BS on his accusation on being racially profiled at a casino. For one, Casinos only see Green, not black and white. That's like anti-Casino. But second, He never stated how he was racially Profiled, only that he was not allowed to spend his enormously large bank account in a casino. So I had to do a little investigating to find out the truth...
What I mostly found was that the hotel and Casino was investigating the incident without any cooperation from the artist nor his entourage. Then, I decided to entertain the comment section of ParqVancouverBC Instagram posts and was astounded of all the Drakes fans Comments on his alleged altercations. That's when I ran across a response from what seem to be an employee of Parq, who had a reasonable explanation worthy of researching.
So according to gaming regulators BCLC, they have restricted certain activities that would have otherwise been used to launder money for criminals. So they weren't saying that Aubrey was to black to gamble there. But that there are to many dope dealers in Canada.
Since 1870, African americans were exposed to all kinds of heinous schemes in order to keep them from making it to the Voting Polls. Some were harassed some were murdered. Some were courageous and some were discouraged, but it never failed. Any black person that thought of taking their destiny in their own hands, were met with extreme resistance.
Notice I said Since 1870. It's 2018 and nothing has changed. Almost 150 years after Blacks were GRANTED the PRIVILEDGE to vote and we are still being harassed. October 16th 2018, Voting Enthusiast group Black Voters Matter was conducting a transportation service for African American Senior Citizens who wanted to vote in the 2016 Georgia Governor Election, when they were approached by an official of the Senior Citizen Center and asked for the Seniors to vacate the bus. Now, keep in mind this is a center and not a home. The Seniors are there on their own volition and have not been admitted. So by asking them to leave the bus and stay put is illegal detainment.
A county clerk reportedly called the senior center and said there were “concerns” about the seniors being transported in the city of Louisville, south of Augusta by the Black Voters Matter bus. They were concerned about the “political activity” which isn’t allowed during county-sponsored events.
Now here's the kicker, Latosha Brown, Co-Founder of Black Voters Matter, reported on The Roland Martin show that the center had also arranged transportation to the voting polls prior to Black Voters Matter, and they were also told to abandon their plan as well. So this time voter registration succeeded in stopping black votes... Well at least postponing it.
Now there is no City Council Official that will take responsibility for the call, so there's no one as usual to be held accountable. It probably wasn't even a city official. It could have been a regular citizen that made a phone call impersonating an official office and making demands and threatening to fire someone. If so, We will call her Voter Vixen.
But this brings me to my final point. If Voter Vixen made this false call then we should hold the recipient of the phone call accountable. For one, fear of losing your job should never make you do something illegal, KNOW YOUR RIGHTS. And two, it shows that the common citizen does not know basic rights covered by the constitution, well maybe the criminals do, the always claim their rights are being violated though they never say which ones lol.
If we do not know our rights, then we can be used as pawns by the ones we elect to protect those rights. Soon, we may forget that the 4th amendment protects our right to bear arms. And if you didn't catch that then our guns are already gone. By Voter Vixen scaring this person of losing his job, he gave up his rights, then violated the rights of several of our seniors by denying their right to vote. 148 years after being granted that privilege.
And no one will be punished because... It's Just a Privilege.
... all week starting June 18, 2018 with Passion Hour, PASSION OF ZAMBIA where we will be playing Zambian R&B to help you end your weekend off right. The following day we will introduce you to Massive, Lil Ma Vis, Pricetag and more great Zambian artists that have helped build the music ecology of their nation. One thing about their music I love is the fact they do not charge for their music. It's given free of charge because they understand the power of sponsorships. By not putting monetary value on two art, they keep it in their heart. Providing true inspiration devoid of shallow essence of conformity delivered in the form of lies. Everyone has their own niche and personality that seperates them from others, but still upholds the culture that is Zambia. John us as we celebrate Zambia and their a reggae scene in this week's Reggae Hour, broadcasting this world music with a spliff in ya mouth and a rump in ya hand. Turning the club up so tune in.
