A Note From Rhymes With Snitch

Longtime Rhymes with Snitch readers are aware of the deeply personal reasons I choose to leave serious news to the serious news sites and journalists [click here if you missed that].

But weeks like this test my will....

I am thisclose to either shutting this meaningless shit down altogether or turning it into a Black Power blog.

The Revolution will not be televised but it will stream live on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

NO offense but I haven't seen anything posted that was serious. As far as changing this site to a black power site??? It's ridiculous. Not all people are racist and not all people hate the police. All we are saying is that the same compassion that the same compassion people want America to have for our fellow officers that where gun down to have the same compassion for the people who are of colored being murdered everyday - by some of the men in blue. God Bless - two wrongs don't make a right!

Shut it down snitch!!!

Black power!!!

We need meaningless distraction sometimes and sometimes we the henny no chaser!

Anonymous said...

What does black power have to do with racism? Stop it. Stop it now. Yes please open this up so we can have a place to come together, stop arguing over meaningless celebs and get this in order. This isn't about hating police so get out with your trolling comments.

Does anyone here see the irony of how a group of people were targeted not because of what they did, but who they were? What in the world did those Dallas police have to do with the shootings that happened IN OTHER STATES??!??! It's the same reasoning as thinking that all Black people are responsible for the actions of a few n*ggers. When is it going to stop? Just too sad. Prayers don't seem to be enough.

No shade but you have always been last minute with the gossip....good gossip but late.


Instead of another blackpower blog, how about an Accountability blog? If we call out those who defend, support or fund Professional(police, judges, etc); that will make a greater impact.

Snitch, I've enjoyed the blog and the Disqu-free format that allows for a free flow of ideas. We appreciate all you do and the forum you've chosen. Whatever you choose, we'll be here.

Oh, and may I respectfully request more Trick Daddy news? (I kid! Much love!)

We need sites like this RWS. I'm a 61 year old Black LGBT warrior who has seen (and done) a lot. We need a reprieve from the madness. Contrary to popular opinion, fluff like this helps.

There are days when I can't listen to another politician, when I can't read Ta-Nehisi Coates, Toni Morrison, or Nikki Giovanni ... when I can't watch another news show on Black children being shot down. On those days I value the fluff.

Keep your back straight, your head held high, and don't close this website.

And to hell with those who don't understand this.

Leave the black power shit to the big boys! Keep the site the way it is. People need to vent an laugh at celebrities shit as we do here. I see an epic fail if you try to change what is now. You will lose many, followers. Most that come here like the distraction of real serious events. It will be failure waiting to happen. Good Luck

Umpa Lumpa said...

Snitch, like 11:32 stated, I also enjoy very much, your site.

I read your post on keeping it light hearted on here when you originally posted it. I agreed then that we should have a refuge.

But if you feel the need to change up this format, I'll change up with you.

Its sad to see so many that want to willingly stay asleep. The bullshit gossip is just another distraction to whats really going on. How can be choose to be ignorant in this day and.

SNITCH GO BLACK FIST!!!

In the words of Tupac you are appreciated Snitch. Don't Change.

Black people I do want to say some thing. Most of you live Black Power everyday. You are successful despite society telling you shouldn't be. I never understood why Black people give Whites the satisfaction of ignorance or failure? I'm the kind of person I won't prove you wrong & I won't prove you right either. I will not lose my faith in God not will I hate because That's what the devil wants & I'm not here to please the devil

Something need to change because the fuckery you post everyday ain't cutting it.

Anonymous said...

I like this site the way it is. If you choose to change it, I understand. But if I do read gossip sites, yours has always been first because it doesn't have the annoying ads or popups. But you gotta follow your heart. Is there a way to do both?

Anonymous said...

We all the enjoy the escapism of the celebrity gossip here, but you balance it with news stories (you posted the Bambatta accusations when almost no other Black Blog would and people were calling Star and the accusers liars, as well as the Ebola/Chris Brown post and the Detroit molester story last week.) Keep up the good work and listen to 12:08!

I'm feeling you snitch. I'll stay reading either way.

Absolutely no sympathy for those 5 neanderthal pigs.
Fed up with the way they're being eulogized like saints all over the news today.
Paid from the public purse and completely unaccountable for their barbaric behavior towards blacks. I've long believed there's some sort of KKK recruitment drive going on within this brutal cabal of savages with badges.

Why can't you do both? Necole Bitchie tried to go that lifestyle only route and well... When's the last time anyone types that site into their web browser?

I'm good with activism and a side of gossip.

Please don't cancel this website. This is the only blog where I can say what I want to say, be anonymous and use profanity and get away with it. Here are some reasons to think about us.

Tyler Perry Website
Everyone on this fool website clearly has mental health issues and want money or jobs from him.

Bossip
Way too ghetto and violent and always talking about a man smashed a woman to smitherings.

Media Takeout
Always talking about upvotes and way too violent and grafic.

Go all the way black!

I forgot to add Diary of a Hollywood street trick.

This website is a cult website and thiscfool tacky Jasper reads every post and erases the ones he doesn't like. What's the use of posting on a website if you can't say what you want to say.

Anonymous said...

Yes! This is the only website where you can roast these coon azz cerlerberites and savage culture vultures. But adding some black consciousness to it would only make RWS better. So I am with you regardless but doing both would be better.

Whatever you do, can you fix the site so that it won't route to apps and other random ads while your IOS users browse. Literally has been happening for years now

I haven't commented in awhile, I just browse now, but I stand by any journalism for the cause. Do you, you will have my support.

SNITCH, I have come in and out. Mostly because there are serious topics I want to discuss with like minded ppl. Sometimes I hover cause there are some crazy, funny ppl on here. I would like to see a mixture. Laughter is healing.

I also like the fact I can share without signing in and signing. Some of these social media sites ask for ridiculous shit. Facebook asked me to upload my government id. I told them to kiss my ass.

Times are very trying and I get your outrage. I don't buy that Dallas shit for one second. Executing black continues to be a national past time. So let's do whatever we need to do.

Accountability is a great idea. Over 550 black ppl murdered by police in 2016 and it's just July. They ain't gonna stop unless we make them accountable.

Dallas was a DISTRACTION . I AIN'T DISTRACTED.

laza said...

You were kind of a black power blog from the start and you kept a listing of other similar blogs. No kissing ass of these fake ass celebrities! I would accept that you stay hard on the celebrity world too!

Your site is my escape from the heavy shit, but I feel you tho' so do what you feel is best.

If turning this site into a black power blog will bring you purpose, or peace, or whatever you might need, do it. Just do it. You need to take care of you first.

If you keep doing a celeb site, I hope it helps to know you're spreading positive black culture around the world. I'm white, and from a foreign country, so when I read this blog, I get to learn about media, and black celebrities that I don't get to see in the content that's exported by America's mainstream media. I've discovered and sought out black talent because I learned about it here. I get the impression that America has a whole separate entertainment world for Black celebs, and I wouldn't know anything about it if it wasn't for you. Where I'm from, no one is talking about the people you're talking about. You're giving black artists exposure, a voice, in a part of the world where they have none. Some of the stories are trashy, but that's true of white media/celebs, too. Black entertainment culture deserves the freedom to share the good and the bad without fear of the bad defining the whole culture the same way white people have that freedom. This blog is a vehicle of that freedom.

oh come on said...

just do it. we can see your heart ain't in this no more.

prissa o said...

My 2 cents is DO BOTH. The commenters here are Diamond Platnum status and many are awake to the foolish agendas that these celebrities perpetrate. We tell is like it is (with a little conspiracy seasoning sprinkled in too lol).

We CAN have the best of both worlds.

Anonymous said...

^^
Exactly @prissa o. We ARE having the best of both worlds.

I've been a RWS regular since spring of 2009 and I can't tell you how many political, economic, conspiratorial, social/conscious debates we have had in the comments section under a post about foolishness. If Sn!tch wants to change this to a "black power" blog (-_-), then so be it, but I personally believe that keeping the format as it is will not change the fact that people from all walks of life will keep it real and speak their minds (if comments aren't deleted.....) about real issues. For the first time in a long time I believe Black people are waking up. They are doing it quietly, I might add, and hide it behind the ridiculousness of popular culture but they ARE waking up.

I hope everyone out there sees through the BS and keep learning, get back to being and building the black family and (constitutionally) arm yourselves and (if you're religious) stay prayed up. We are at the bottleneck of the most poignant and dangerous time in human history and we need all hands on deck for this one.

Yes ma'am & APPLAUSE!
