Cop finds out he’s 18% black through, sues chief for racism

In the latest installment of What Is Good In America Right Now? a Michigan police officer claims he was subjected to racial abuse upon learning he had African heritage after taking a genetic test on

Sgt. Cleon Brown was subjected to a constant stream of abuse by his fellow officers and even the mayor of of Hastings, Michigan.

According to, Brown was subject to verbal taunts and jokes about his race,

“Sgt. Cleon Brown said the police chief called him, ‘Kunte,’ a character in Alex Haley’s novel, ‘Roots: The Saga of an American Family,’ while officers whispered, ‘Black Lives Matter’ and pumped fists as they walked past.”

The taunting continued and reached new levels when Brown’s fellow officers decorated the office Christmas tree with racist kitsch.


Again, from MLive,

“At Christmas, the department hung stockings with names of the officers on a Christmas tree. A black Santa Claus figurine – with ‘18%’ written on its white beard – was put in Brown’s stocking.”

My dude Cleon is firing back and suing “the city of Hastings, police Chief Jeff Pratt, City Manager Jeff Mansfield, Deputy Chief Dale Boulter and Sgt. Kris Miller.”

Cleon Brown is not fuckin’ around anymore. It’s pretty clear he got this ancestry test and shared the information with his co-workers who thought they could joke around about his race, but took it way too far.

As for the city of Hastings, they are really trying it, saying it’s all Cleon’s fault for starting “the joking and banter”. The city’s statement read.

“Sgt. Brown, in a very joking and jovial manner, informed several of his fellow officers that he had recently taken a DNA test through and the results showed that he was 18% African American.”

The co-defendants in the case all reportedly unfriended Brown on Facebook and refused to let him play in the charity basketball game after Brown filed a discrimination complaint.

This is some petty bullshit from the whole Hastings Police Department. Poor Cleon got ostracized real quick once he realized he was 18% black, seems pretty representative of law enforcement’s opinion of race in this country.

Shouts out Cleon though, we hope he gets all the money from Hastings and his trash ass co-workers.

It’s safe to say twitter had some fun with this one… maybe Cleon should’ve seen this one coming?

Lil Uzi is pushed to the edge, jumps off 20-foot stage in Miami

Lil Uzi is a wild boy. Hate on him all you want but this dude is 22 and getting money. With that being said, he’s been taking this whole rock star persona thing to new levels that just ain’t safe.

At the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami last night, this dude deadass jumped off a 20-foot stage and trusted his fans (the same fans that chase his ass around at shows, literally) to catch his fall.

Whose mans is this?!

Kid is insane. He could’ve gotten seriously hurt but you already know he would’ve finished the show regardless.

Uzi performed the wild stunt during the track “Money Longer” and the crowd completely  lost their shit. Of course there were multiple angles captured.

Here’s a better shot of before he leaped.

My man was looking like he was falling out a damn building! It’s safe to say that casual fans and even haters at this festival now have a newfound respect for him.

Here’s another shot from a little deeper out.

Of course, Twitter had quite a bit to say about all of this. As if Uzi wasn’t already great meme material, he’s getting credit for his ballsy move.

You already know he got the Jim Ross WWE treatment for jumping off the top rope!

Thankfully it didn’t end like this though.

He even got the Will Smith from Fresh Prince of Bel Air meme.

*Hits the blunt*

The truth is that Uzi is a legend now.

No matter what your opinion is of this kid, you have to respect him now for this stunt.
