The Beat-Down: A Check He Couldn’t Cash!
By Khalil Amani
Didja see the recent video of a beat-down of some guy named Freekie London? Talk about gettin’ “World-Starred!” Talk about When "keepin’ it real" goes wrong? This Negro got pummeled, waylaid, beat the fuck up, knocked the fuck out and beat the brakes off home-biscuit! He took a hellacious thrashing at the hands of a white guy. The footage...
No one knows what started the fight, but clearly, the white guy and his friend were in retreat mode—that is, even after said homeboy told them to “Suck My dick!” (Several times) they headed for their car to leave peacefully, but noooooo! Mr. “I’m Dolo” (by myself) couldn’t let well enough alone.
Now here’s where... when “keepin’ it real” goes horribly wrong. Both white guys were clearly much heavier, beefier and bigger than Mr. Freekie—who looks 150 lbs. soak and wet. That alone should make a nigga reevaluate the shit-uation. Not this dude! Muggin’ for the camera, something inside his trim frame made him think a nigga from New York can’t take an “L.”
So Freek-dawg proceeds to walk up to the bigger of the two white guys where he unleashes his version of a Muhammad Ali two-piece (which may or may not have made connection with Bubba’s face). Straightway, this white boy throws a few punches just to get close to Freekie and wraps him up and they both fall to the ground. For a quick second Freek-daddy is on top of him, talking smack until the white guy rolled his skinny ass over and full-mounded him from the back MMA-style. (First rule of fighting! Never, ever turn your back on your opponent!) A pure shellacking ensued. Freekie London lay in the parking lot, bludgeoned, beaten, and on Queer Street.
Anybody can lose a fight!
And when you lose a fight, especially a fight videotaped for the whole world to see—own that shit—(unless you’re of the 40 Glocc variety.) Instead of owning that street fight loss, Freekie tried to justify his thrashing by tweeting (And I quote) “I was finna beat that white boy ass but you see his partner try trip me up n shit and it gave him the upper hand PROOF IN VIDEO. They jumped me!” My question is, “When did they jump you?” LOL! My next question is, “When did his friend trip you?” Because, after reviewing the video, his friend was between two cars when the ruckus started—nowhere near you! I guess this was the phantom punch ala Ali trip that the world could not see.
Oh, niggas went ham on his ass on Twitter and then he sunk to an even lower position and tried to invoke the “race-card” on Twitter folks! He really went after black people’s negritude, tweeting, “Aight y'all slander me from the fight but not going go in on the white boys for calling me a Nigger? Black people got it backwards by informing us that the white guy called him a “nigger.”
Can I say this? If I were a white boy trying to leave a potential fight scene and a black guy invited me to “suck his dick”—yeah, I’d call you a “nigger” a “faggot” and a few more expletives! Fuck outta here! You gets no sympathy from me or Twitter. Would you be telling us this if you won the fight? You went after his manhood (by inviting him to your penis) and he went after your humanity (by calling you a nigger). From the looks of things, those white guys were actually trying to rationalize with you—calm you down—temper the shit-uation—explain their way out of a fight (like white guys generally do before you test their gangsta). Nah! Freekie! Don’t play on my blackness! You were wrong as two left shoes and you got your ass handed to you like a runaway Alabama slave! You were the aggressor! You were the initiator! You “wrote a check that your ass couldn’t cash!” Man-up! You're a star now baby-boy! (At least for 15 minute!)
