Jeremy Lin Not Laughing At Chris Rock’s Asian Joke During the #Oscars

During the Oscars last night Chris Rock used his platform as host to slam Hollywood for their lack of diversity.

His takedown of Hollywood was straight to point as he pulled no punches in classic Chris Rock style.

While many have praised Rock, there have been some to criticize him for going too far with his jokes.

The Charlotte Hornets’ Jeremy Lin Tweeted his disappointment in the joke

Rock was also criticized by Shaun King (Columnist for the Daily News and Black Lives Matter activist) for his use of rape and lynchings as joke material.

Can everyone please step-down from their soapbox and cool out with the fake outrage.

Does Chris Rock’s comedy push the limit? Yes, but while he was making light of a stereotype he was also pointing out the hypocrisy in the 2nd part of the joke…

“If anybody’s upset about that joke, just tweet about it on your phone that was also made by these kids,”

You can be angry about Rock’s joke but where’s the anger concerning child labor and poor work conditions in China?

If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!

Welcome to the Fight Marco Rubio…

Wednesday night I asked the question, When Will Marco Rubio Actually Win? 

Well if his performance Thursday night in CNN‘s GOP debate is any indicator. Rubio might start seeing some victories coming his way.

Ok, ok Marco!

Now, a good debate performance doesn’t necessarily translate into primary wins, but at this point Rubio needed to make something happen. And it looks like his new strategy was effective.

Last night Rubio stopped trying to be the “Adult in the room” and he smacked Donald Trump with one-liners/zingers. Rubio, time and time again relentlessly fired shots at Trump. At times overwhelming the Donald and kept the business man on the defensive.

It remains to be seen if Rubio’s switch to an attack style can carry him to some victories on Super Tuesday, but desperate times calls for desperate measures.

But here’s something to keep in mind….

Rubio’s attack strategy seemed to have caught Trump off-guard, but I can’t see that happening again. The next couple of days should be interesting.

As always….

When Will Marco Rubio Actually Win?

When will Marco Rubio start living up to the media and pundits expectations and actually give Donald Trump a run for his money?

To be honest, when will he start living up to his own team’s expectations. The Washington Post reported that Rubio’s team had a strategy of “3-2-1”; coming in 3rd in Iowa, 2nd in New Hampshire, and 1st in South Carolina.

The only problem, Trump mania!

I shouldn’t give Trump ALL the credit, Rubio hasn’t helped his cause stumbling in debates and coming off as the manufactured candidate.

Time is running out for Rubio and with Trump’s victory in Nevada, he has to be feeling the pressure. And we know what happens when he feels the pressure…..

SMH, Rubio has to get it together soon or else he will be on the sidelines with his old mentor Jeb Bush.

The Fake Beyonce Outrage

Soon after Beyoncé completed her halftime performance at Super Bowl 50, the fake Beyoncé outraged reared its ugly head.

Twitter exploded with trolls criticizing the “celebration” of the Black Panthers and continued with former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani going on Fox & Friends and stating with no shame that Beyoncé performance was anti-police.

Days after the performance trolls talked about protesting the NFL at their headquarters in NYC. They wanted the NFL to know they will not standby and let everyone know how inappropriate it was for her to celebrate her Blackness during the Super Bowl…

My daddy Alabama, Momma Louisiana
You mix that negro with that Creole make a Texas bamma
I like my baby hair, with baby hair and afros
I like my negro nose with Jackson Five nostrils
Earned all this money but they never take the country out me
I got hot sauce in my bag, swag – Beyoncé’s ‘Formation’

Damn you Beyoncé for loving your “negro nose”, how dare you!!!

PROTEST, PROTEST, PROTEST, protest, protest…..

Beyonce_Protest

Yeah, about that protest….

According to the NY Post, the anti-Beyonce protest had 4 people in attendance. And as Beyoncé’s husband Jay-Z once said

Kristaps Porzingis #HotlineZing

Kristaps Porzingis has taken the NBA by storm in the first half of the season, so be prepared for Porzingis mentions during NBA All-Star weekend in Toronto. Having the 4th most sold jersey in the NBA will get you a lot of love from the media, and apparently it will also make you the feature of a song parody of Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’….

As a Knicks fan I am cool with all this attention, just at the end of the day… Stay Focus my man, Stay Focus!!
