DEAR BLACK PEOPLE: JUST BECAUSE YOU SEE A MONKEY ON TV DOESN'T MEAN IT'S RACIST

When people went crazy over those Adidas hi-tops with the cuff, I said it then: "the angry black routine is getting old". And while today it's not getting any younger, the same old routine is being used in the form of anger toward NBC.

The network is accused of being racist for showing a commercial with a monkey in it after Gabby Douglas won her gold medal. I can't express enough how upsetting this is to me, and how embarrassed I am to be a part of the group of people who believe this.

I saw this video that someone took the time to upload on YouTube.



Looks racismy doesn't it? Well how about this?

Come on, people. I just had to do this very thing with the Lil Wayne video that people said predicted the Colorado shootings. If you watched the whole commercial here, you'll see that in this promo for the upcoming show Animal Practice, the monkey was daydreaming about being in the Olympics while watching a white man on the rings. What's so damn racist about this? Nothing. Are you all saying that Gabby is a white man or a monkey? Who's racist now?

I've been seeing this commercial since the Olympics began, and I swear I knew one day a bunch of idiots were going to somehow turn this commercial into a thing. I wonder what's going to be said about this promo for the show:

My advice to the angry is get a life. Stop looking for trouble, because there are real issues that need to be addressed that no one is doing a thing about.

LIL WAYNE VIDEO PREDICTS AURORA SHOOTINGS [DEBUNKED]

It's no secret that I'm a conspiracy theorist. There are way too many things going on in this world that are more than just coincidence. With that being said, there are a lot of things that are just coincidences. As a conspiracy theorist, I have to be careful with what battles I choose to fight. When I gave you 11 days of conspiracy about 9/11, I had information to support my case, including video from reporters and witnesses on the scene the day of the incident. When I gave you Dirty Jobs in reference to the London bombings of 7/7/05, I again had information to support my case. If I feel strongly about something, I'm going to show and tell you why. That's what I do. However, what I'm not going to do is sit back and let people scream conspiracy about something that makes no sense while that shit goes viral.


On the Gathering Of The Minds Facebook fan page, one of the admins shared a frame (click to enlarge) from Lil Wayne's new video, "Homies Still" feat. Big Sean released three days before the Aurora shootings. In it, Wayne is seen standing in the front of a movie auditorium with 12 skeletons in the background. Get it? 12 skeletons, 12 people died. Scary, huh?

Since I'm already in the spirit of fairness, I have to say that the GOTM admin got this picture from the Illuminati Exposed Facebook fan page, which screams conspiracy at anything moving. Still, they shared it, so they get to share in this finger-wagging.

So, I go to YouTube and what do I see on the front page? This 53 second video saying the same thing as the picture:



At this point, I was halfway sold. Based on what I know about the entertainment industry and how they sometimes "predict" certain real-life events in film and television, it was pretty convincing. There were similar videos and they all had staggering numbers for something that was just uploaded a couple of days ago. I thought to myself, "this whole movement is about to go viral".

Then I watched the video...

The actual music video (which I will not show because Wayne won't get any airtime here) starts off crazy and finishes that way. There are skeletons all the through this video, not just in the movie theater. There are also mannequins, a pink elephant, and Wayne's head on a platter at a dinner table full of the mannequins.
Now, the caption on the picture above says go to the 3:42 mark of the video to see the 12 skeletons.
At 3:42 I stopped the video and counted the skeletons. 12, just as advertised. I hit the play button, and when it got to the 3:48 mark, I saw something. I snapped a picture of it for you.


What's this? There are over 20 skeletons in this auditorium. (click to enlarge) All the camera did was go wide in the shot.

What I don't understand is how do you see the 12, but not the 20? This shit right here is about to blow up because 1.) people are too stupid to check things out on their own, and 2.) wannabe, or uninformed conspiracy theorists take one piece of something and run wild with it.

I am making it my duty to stop this movement from going viral. The blogs are popping up all over the place, the videos are generating hits and comments, but to me, these lames are just spreading garbage.
