Once upon a Grey’s Anatomy, there was a distinguished actor by the name of Isaiah Washington who got himself fired for calling one of his co-stars a “faggot”—a faux pas he foolishly attempted to rectify with “I love gay. I wanted to be gay. Please let me be gay” in its aftermath.


In the decade or so since, when he’s not preoccupied with watching his career swirl around the toilet bowl, you might catch him sprinkling raisins in his collard greens with Diamond and Silk or embarrassing himself on social media.

Unfortunately for us all, on Monday it was the latter. Because this happened:

Apparently Isaiah missed the memo that effective January 20, 2017, The Black Delegation is no longer accepting invitations to the White House. And before you bring up Kanye, we tried to tell that nigga but he doesn’t listen.

However, The First Step Act did draw rave reviews when it was passed last year, as both Democrats and Republicans were well aware that mandatory minimums have generated inordinate sentences in drug-related cases.

But you can’t shit on Obama for not doing enough for me and you, your momma and your cousin too then champion Donald fucking Trump of all people as The Great Negro Equalizer just because he invited you over to the crib for some Big Macs and chicken nuggets. Especially when Trump dialed back Obama-era initiatives and policies that specifically benefited us. That ain’t how this shit works, bruh.

But please, carry on, Isaiah.


I believe it was one Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins who once warned us of the perilous dangers of chasing waterfalls instead of sticking to the rivers and the lakes that we’re used to.

To that point, there is not a chance in hell that Donald Trump—the same man who coddles white supremacists for a living—will ever in life co-sign reparations. Apparently, that bigoted, orange-hued river and lake is quite obvious to everyone else but you.


But for sharing your “truth, at least you got the stamp of approval from the MAGA mafia.
