Lil Nas X

So on Monday, March 29th, my son asked me if I heard about Lil Nas X. I was like, “Yeah, I saw him on a post in the Shaderoom on a pole.” My son was like, “Naw, I’m talkin’ ‘bout them shoes.” I was like, “Shoes?” Because I’d seen him dawn some high heel stilettos in his practice pole video, I assumed he was speaking of ‘them’ shoes. Unbeknownst to me, he was speaking of some, “Satan Shoes”. While he continued to explain, I hurried on over to the place where I get all my up-to-the-minute Black news, @TheShaderoom. #dontjudgeme And lo and behold the caption read, “Nike Denies Involvement in Creation of Lil Nas X’s Satan Shoes”. [1] Apparently not only are the shoes named after Satan, but it also contains human blood. But then it got worse. My son also said there’s a video in which he worships the devil and actually gives Satan a lap dance. After filling me in with the details, he politely then asked me what I thought about the whole situation. Surprisingly, the first thing out of my mouth was, “It’s our fault!”

It’s Our Fault
