Now, I am not claiming that this clan were in fact living on the entitlement gravy train. . .but this is a great illustration of how things really add up:
Then I got to thinking about the fact that I may be making a hasty generalization, as I realized that my forst thought was they mis-printed the word “entrepreneur” in lieu of “gangsta”. . . so I did a little digging, and found this (h/t The Sniper):
Not only was Flava-Flair here an “entrepreneur” but he also sired nine, that’s NINE, children by the age of 25. Rabbits don’t have that many children by the time they’re 25. But I’m sure that his entrepreneurial spirit drove his business as much as it drove his pelvis…
New Orleans, La., — This evening, members of the New Orleans Police Department are investigating the murder of two men, ages 25 and 22-years of age. The 25-year-old local man has been identified as Larmondo Allen. The other victim was identified as 22-year-old Edward Taylor. The offense occurred shortly before 11:00 p.m., at 2339 Martin Luther King Boulevard (Guste Public Housing Development).
According to investigators, COPS officers were patrolling the development and heard several gunshots and later found the men in the development. Taylor was observed lying in the courtyard, suffering apparent multiple gunshot wounds to the head and body. Allen was seen lying, a short distance away from the first victim, on a concrete stairway and near the second floor balcony. He suffered an apparent gunshot wound to the chest. Both men were pronounced dead on the scene.
Both men were convicted felons, Taylor had a Second Degree Murder Warrant for his arrest in connection with the January 7, 2003 murder of 26-year-old Aaron Jones who was killed in the 1500 block of Bienville Street. The NOPD aired his photograph on January 14, 2004 in connection with this case.
Allen also has previous arrests, and in May of 2003 he was arrested on two (2) counts of attempted murder and one count of First Degree Murder. In December and October of 1999, he was arrested on two separate First Degree Murder cases.
A convicted felon? I’m shocked… shocked I tell you!!! So now that we know those facts about the true nature of Flava-Flair’s life and death it begs the question: Just what the hell does one have to do to get listed as “filthy murderer (and probably gang-banger and/or drug dealer) gets his comeuppance” instead of “entrepreneur” in the obits in New Orleans?No it’s not. It’s only racist if I made it a point to mention and concentrate on his race here… which I didn’t. Regardless of his race, the guy got what he had coming.
