Inspiring Independent Presidential Candidate and Billionaire Ross Perot Dies at 89

Published

on

Ross Perot, the eccentric Texas billionaire who ran for president twice as an independent in the 90s, has died after a battle with cancer.

In 1992, Perot scored 19% of the popular vote for president, far and away the most successful bid outside the two major parties in the modern era.

Many members of the GOP establishment still blame Perot for George Bush’s re-election loss, ignoring Bush’s broken promise not to raise taxes.

Even with the blame cast upon the self-made billionaire, Perot remained popular enough to run again in 1996 with populist Americans continuing to support his candidacy.

Rapper Lil Wayne Breaks the Silence on George Floyd’s Death

Published

On May 29, 2020, Lil Wayne commented on the death of George Floyd.

The controversial death involved Minneapolis Police Department officer Derek Chauvin placing his knee on Floyd’s neck as he was handcuffed on the ground.

“I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific. … And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge,” Wayne remarked during an IG Live chat with rapper Fat Joe.

Wayne added: “We have to actually get into who that person is. And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we’re doing.”

On top of that, the New Orleans rapper explained why he doesn’t always go public on these political issues.

“What else am I gonna do after that?” Wayne said to Fat Joe. “Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt and they think they did something. What you gonna do after that? Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out there and do something? So, if I ain’t about to do all that, then I ain’t about to do nothing. I’ll pray for ya.”

Wayne shared more of his thoughts regarding how people should process information during times of controversy.

“It’s actually learning about it,” Wayne commented. “What we need to do is we need to learn about it more. If we wanna scream about something, know what we’re screaming about. If we wanna protest about something, know what we’re protesting about. Because if we wanna get into it, there’s a bunch of facts that we think we know that we don’t know. … We scream about things that, sometimes, they really ain’t true.”

Wayne and Joe’s full discussion can be viewed below:

Riots have spread to other cities across the U.S., which included Minneapolis, where Floyd was killed. On May 29, Derek Chauvin received charges of murder and manslaughter in the killing of Floyd.
