Shotgun Formation

shotgun formation

As you may know I am a father of 3 (2 daughters and 1 son). They are still young in age as my oldest just turned 7, my middle child is 3 and my baby girl will turn 2 in July. So I have a little more time to nurture them and mold them before they want to go out on dates with the opposite sex and don’t even get me started with the word prom. I got a little more time to groom and teach them the fundamentals on what should and what shouldn’t be tolerated with respect to the opposite sex. As I’m getting older I am realizing that black men and women are subjected to so many atrocities that we must protect them a lot better than what we are doing now. I can’t lie I always wanted to live out the Bad Boys 2 scene when Martin Lawrence daughter goes on her first date and I got my man Cook pointing the 9mm talking about ‘you 15 nigga you look 30…ay yo Sonny let me get it poppin like Orville Redenbacher fa real’. Now that I’m close to 33 that might be the dumbest shit I could do at that very moment. See if my oldest daughter is allowed to go on a date at 15 I will be just turning 40 and at the rate I’m going to the gym I will be a force to be reckoned with and I won’t need a gun. My 6 foot frame at 300 pounds with facial hair and my break a nigga hand with a firm handshake should be enough. On the other hand, if I ever need a gun trust and believe I’m not going to just show you I’m going to use it because ‘if Young Sonny don’t trust ya Imma shoot ya’ (future voice).

It’s like the Dave Chappelle episode when he got 24 year old self talking to his 30 year old self when it comes to my thought about the shotgun pose. 24 year old Sonny probably would quote a Beanie Sigel line or stare you down like Beans did when he saw Dame in the club on State Property; but 30 year old Sonny maybe not. 30 something year old Sonny probably would throw a cookout with all his friends and then have a You Should Be Here presentation where they are only selling caskets as a mind trick to that young man letting him know that as a black man you must protect the black woman but if you refuse you can be eliminated. Look I am all here for mental hazing someone. I’m here for the fear factor but honestly I rather be respected than feared. What are your thoughts? If I really wanna fuck with ya put every channel on the ID channel or whistle the Kill Bill theme song whenever I see you. Like I said I’m all for the intimidation factor, I’m here for the respect factor just don’t use a gun to prove your point and especially don’t put that shit on social media. I don’t know what Imma do because I still got about 10 years before I execute this plan of mine.

The year is 2026 and my oldest is going to prom and her date shows up to the door in a tux and who knows maybe a flying car and here I come dressed in all black with the pit bull like Nino Brown with the shotty. That shit don’t even sound right in a movie let alone real life. Let’s dissect this for a second. I understand having a gun to protect yourself and your family in the midst of an attack from someone or as a means of survival but pointing it at someone that doesn’t pose a threat is a coward move. Like I mentioned earlier we are subjected to cruel treatment by policeman, society, shit ourselves now my son can’t take your daughter to prom without a double barrel threat to the chest. For the record just because you got a gun don’t mean you thorough-pussy (meek mill voice). If anything it’s just shows me that your daughter is just a piece of property and not the prized possession that you thought she was because if you got to brandish a gun as a fear tactic maybe you the one that’s really scared. I can only imagine slave masters back in the day did the same dumb shit to intimidate somebody now here we go in 2016 doing the same stupid shit. Oh and another thing if you do that do to my son and post it on social media my goal will be to kill you.  My mentality should not reach that point but pointing a gun or attempting to take my children’s life changes things.

I got a question for you: If you really feel that my son or any man for that matter is so much of a threat to your daughter why the fuck are you letting her go with him anyway? Why are you not protecting her or shielding her instead you want to throw her to the wolves and take pictures to get a few comments from people that don’t even give a fuck about you fa real. Don’t throw her to the wolves and then get mad afterwards when she is dead or coming back home looking like Martin when he fought Tommy the Hitman Hearns; intervene from the jump and nip that shit in the bud. If I ever feel that my daughter is in danger by a man the last thing Imma do is allow them to see each other.

I got another question for you: Does this apply only to the opposite sex? This is 2016 and the LGBT community is getting larger and stronger by the day if a manly girl with the jeans sagging wearing men’s underwear comes to the door to take your daughter out as a father are you pointing the gun at them as well or is this pose strictly for the opposite sex.

I want that relationship with my daughters that they can tell me anything good or bad and then I can use it as a teaching tool. On some real shit if they don’t pose no threat let you still feel the need to show off the gun collection then my friend you a George Zimmerman type of nigga and quite frankly I don’t want my son fuckin with your daughter no way because you are the bigger threat in this situation. On the flip side if a girl comes over my house should my wife and her goons take a picture pointing a gun at your daughters chest because moms be protecting their sons the same way if not worst. I’ve been in plenty arguments about disciplining my own son so I can only imagine what mom dukes would do if a lady did her son wrong.

I understand with the Rekisha Boyd and Sandra Bland and numerous incidents involving black women and their untimely death, black women are becoming an endangered species. So when something is becoming endangered what should you do: protect it with your life. So if you got these guns fuck it show your daughter how to shoot or teach others how to shoot instead of using the gun like a toy because like I said earlier if you point a gun at my son I have no choice but to protect him even if that means ending your life. I know we as black men are supposed to protect our black women but posing in pictures with a gun to a young man ain’t the way to do it. Instead equip these young women on how to protect themselves, how to respect themselves and how to spot an iffy situation and remove themselves from it.

Look man put the guns down because you ain’t using them when you suppose to so stop fronting ol’ light skin Dangerous from the Get Rich or Die Tryin’ movie. We as a black race are in trouble as it is please don’t give any additional ammo to the people who are trying to get rid of us. If you don’t want your daughter to date that’s cool I can respect that but pointing a gun at my son as a scare tactic isn’t the way to go. Shit the way my son is now he’ll probably get mad and go try to take the gun out your hand and use it on you. It’s not funny it’s not cool you shouldn’t get no likes on Facebook because that’s why you really did you ol’ thirst bucket for attention ass motherfuckers. I don’t care how many views you get on Snap Chat don’t ever try to use my son or any man’s son as a prop for your staged play but deep down you wouldn’t bust a grape in a food fight. Stop dickeating the white man’s attempt to intimidate your own kind and let’s work together for once. Let’s come up with solutions on how we stop this before somebody really gets hurt and then its mad screen print shop businesses booming because the RIP shirts are back in full effect. Let’s raise our kids to be better and let the generations after us with a wealth of knowledge and self-worth.
