Be Like, Chicago, and Foh: Oo00o Aug 18, 2018 "Sign on door no guns" My husband and I have conceal carry permits. We noticed the no weapons at the door. I don't do business with companies that deny me my 2nd amendment right and put me at risk of a mass shooting with no way to defend my self. So we left. We left every one in that restaurant to fend for themselves Helpful BroBroMate 4613 points 7 days ago Narrator: And everyone was fine. permalink source embed save save-RES report give gold reply show 61 child comments - Psychedelic_Roc +1 2906 points 7 days ago Private property permalink source embed save save-RES report give gold reply show 244 child comments C- Crysos 670 points 7 days ago Was at a festival this past spring and saw a group of people open carry and they all had shirts on with "you're welcome for the protection."

The ones who trust most people to legally own and use guns responsibly? Private businesses have the right to deny service to anyone and do whatever they want, except when it direcrly affects me. OP didn’t say businesses shouldn’t have the right, they just said they wouldn’t patronize any business that did. If I walk into a joint and they start randomly insulting my parentage, genitalia, and genetic viability, I’m not going back there again, even though they’re just exercising their free speech rights. This may be hard for you to grasp, but many people think people should have the right to do things the first group considers wrong. Was at a festival this past spring and saw a group of people open carry and they all had shirts on with “you’re welcome for the protection.” There were cops at the event and I really wouldn’t want grandma who couldn’t come close to the corn hole boards taking any life or death shots. Okay. Were any of the people in question grandmas, or are you just making that up? People who want you disarmed don’t want you to be safe. They want you to be defenseless.   “oh you silly geese, there aren’t going to be any mass shootings in that restaurant.” You know who else thought that? The people who went to Luby’s in Killeen, TX on October 16, 1991. The people who went to Twin Peaks in Waco, TX on May 17, 2015. The people who went to McDonald’s in San Ysidro, CA on July 18, 1984. And the tournament gamers at Chicago Pizza in Jacksonville, FL less than 2 months ago. FOH with that bullshit. Or Waffle House, when they banned guns and explicitly stood by that policy even after incidents involving criminals and guns in their joints, even though someone armed nearby intervened on more than one of those occasions.  Getting shot at Waffle House is practically a meme now. I personally know at least one person who was involved in a shooting at one of our local Waffle Houses I’m sure there are more.

Child Support, Fail, and Jail: Jay-Z and Roc Nation to Invest $3 Million in App That Combats Mass Incarceration @balleralert Jay-Z and Roc Nation to Invest $3 Million in App That Combats Mass Incarceration-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Jay-Z and Roc Nation will reportedly make a $3 million investment in an app called Promise, that combats mass incarceration. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to the website, the app was created by Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins and Diana Frappier to “get people out of jail and provide ongoing support and supervision to help keep them out.” The hope is that the platform will exist as an alternative to incarcerating individuals who cannot afford bail or who miss court dates by mistake. It will provide services to users that will help them log upcoming court dates, counseling appointments, and drug tests. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ When it comes to rehabilitation, Promise plans to provide programs to users that assist with job training and getting information about housing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ As a rapper, Jay-Z has used his platform to consistently speak about how the jail system is designed to fail those of low class and people of color. Last year the rapper wrote an opinion piece on Father’s Day about the exploitative bail industry. For many individuals, they are jailed due to their inability to afford bail, despite not being convicted of crimes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ During an interview with TechCrunch, Ellis-Lamkins spoke on the small infractions that lead to many people of color ending up behind bars. “People are going to jail because they look at a piece of paper and misread it, or are going to jail because they can’t afford a class because they’re instead paying child support. If we’re putting people in jail because they’re poor, brown or black, we’re spending money the wrong way.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “We are increasingly alarmed by the injustice in our criminal justice system,” Jay-Z said in a statement confirming his involvement with the app. “Money, time and lives are wasted with the current policies. It’s time for an innovative and progressive technology that offers sustainable solutions to tough problems. Promise’s team, led by Phaedra, is building an app that can help provide ‘liberty and justice for all’ to millions.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀

Anaconda, Apple, and Bad: Jay-Z, Diddy, and Dr. Dre Become The Richest American Musicians Of Any Genre As They Top Forbes' Wealthiest Hip Hop Artists List @balleralert Jay-Z, Diddy, and Dr. Dre Become The Richest American Musicians Of Any Genre As They Top Forbes’ Wealthiest Hip Hop Artists List - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Black Excellence is at an all-time high, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. From the massive, record-breaking success of ‘Black Panther’ to the many successful business ventures of our favorite Black entertainers, the culture is thriving and it’s beautiful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Thursday, Forbes released its annual list of the wealthiest hip-hop artists on the planet, and the top five entrants came as no surprise as it was very similar to last year’s list. However, there was a bit of a shift in the top two slots. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After catapulting his net worth from $810 million to $900 million through his Armand de Brignac champagne and D’Usse cognac, in addition to his of his nine-figure ownership stakes in Roc Nation and Tidal, Jay-Z has landed the top spot on this year’s list, dethroning business mogul, Diddy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, the Bad Boy CEO secured the No. 2 spot with the help of his interest in Ciroc and Revolt TV, increasing his network to $825 million. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In this year’s list, Dr. Dre held on to his No. 3 spot, but still increased his network form $740 million to $770 million. But, according to reports, Dre may be seeing an even bigger spike next year when he receives his Apple stock from his $3 billion buyout of Beats in 2014. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As the top three contenders for the wealthiest hip-hop acts on the planet, according to Forbes, the three Hip-hop moguls have also become the richest American musicians of any genre in history. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pulling up the rear of the Forbes Five list is none other than Eminem and Drake, who tied at an even $100 million apiece.

Anaconda, Bailey Jay, and Baller Alert: Baller Alert's Today in Hip-Hop: Kanye West Released 'The College Dropout' 14 Years Ago @balleralert DD PARENTAL ADVISORY EXPLICIT CONTENT Baller Alert’s Today in Hip-Hop: Kanye West Released ‘The College Dropout’ 14 Years Ago-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ On Feb. 10, 2004, Kanye West released his debut studio album ‘The College Dropout’ on Roc-A-Fella Records and Def Jam Recordings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ From 1999 to the year of its release, West spent years working on the project. While working on the album, West had already established himself as a producer having done production for artists such as Jay-Z and Talib Kweli. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Doing his own production, West created a masterpiece. Not only did he develop a new sound nicknamed “chipmunk soul," where he took R&B and Soul samples and sped them up, but his lyricism also introduced us to a new style. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ While many rappers of the time maintained the gangsta rap style we were used to, West instead introduced us to the story of the average joe who questions family, religion, politics, and more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The singles from the album, "Through the Wire" and "Jesus Walks", were both critically acclaimed, while “All Falls Down" and "Slow Jamz" charted in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Upon its release, the album debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200 chart having sold 441,000 copies in the first week. ‘The College Dropout’ received phenomenal reviews from multiple publications and even earned West 10 Grammy nominations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Multiple publications such as Time and Rolling Stone have named it one of the greatest albums of all time.
