Revenge of the Cornballs: Michael B Jordan and Black Nerds.

Do you know what feels good? Putting doubters in their place. It’s even better if you publicly humiliate them while doing so! This is why I (like many others) applaud Micheal B. Jordan for checking former classmate and Morning Hustle reporter Lore’l over her ‘corny’ comments towards Jordan and her overall fakeness.

During the premiere of Creed III the star/director was interviewed by Lore’l: a woman who admitted to calling Jordan corny, mocking his name, and calling his heads shots “stupid” when they were in high school on The Undressing Room podcast days prior. With a fake smile and annoying giggle, she brought up how they go way back.

However, Michael B. Jordan stops her and says “The corny kid, right?”: a reference to Lore’l’s remarks.

She awkwardly laughs the question off while defending herself saying that she was simply “misquoted”. Jordan counters, stating that he heard the “corny” remark himself — with the classic “Bitch, we know you’re lying, but continue” look on his face. Laure’l double downs on being misquoted and continues until Jordan’s co-star Jonathan Majors steps in. After a few more questions Laure’l ended the interview with “Well, you’re not corny anymore.”

Passive aggressive much?

In the days following the now infamous interview, the internet has been sounding off on Micheal B Jordan’s actions – especially male Black Nerds as they see Jordan as the ultimate Black nerd icon. He’s a rich movie star and director. He’s a lover of anime who has gone on record with IGN that boxing series Hajime no Ippo and Megalobox as well as shounen series Naruto, My Hero Academia, and Dragon Ball Z influenced Creed III’s direction. It must be also noted that the armor design for his character Killmonger in the film Black Panther may be an homage to Vegeta’s armor design from Dragon Ball Z.

Plus, like many Black nerds, he’s been mocked, teased, and bullied for his quirky passions.

Seeing Jordan check Lore’l has driven Black nerds to go online to tell their dark tales of being tormented and tortured by their peers for being the nerdy ones. Oh, how they rant about Black girls (and girls in general) dissing them because they weren’t a street dude or a normie only to get their get back years down the line. Reading about their painful past is enough to make you cry…

…with laughter, because these grown-ass cornball ass male nerds haven’t yet realized that they have a shitty personality that made people not wanna be with them. They really be letting that high school shit from the past turn make them super bitter and angry toward Western women. Straight up got these victim and persecution complexes going on. They yearn for their “Beat it, chick!” moment one day like their hero Mike.

(Okay, that was kinda mean. I’ll be a little bit nicer – just a little bit, though.)

Look, I understand why my fellow Black nerds can relate to Micheal B. Jordan’s moment. Many of you were the little awkward geeky kid who was counted out, dissed, ignored, bullied, and/or belittled by everyone else in school. You were ostracized by Black normie society and it really burned you up inside. Most of all, you wanted to prove a point: being a nerd isn’t corny and you’ll be way more successful than the despite being a nerd after high school.

This is where things get interesting. I might wind up offending and triggering many of you nerds because this gotta be said.

Yes, it’s common for nerds to disprove their high school critics and wind up becoming massively successful both financially and socially after high school. However you need to have a sense of self, a clear vision, and a strong work ethic to become a successful Black nerd after high school. Michael B. Jordan is where he is today because of hard work and drive – not simply because he’s a nerd. Did being a nerd play a role in his success? Of course, but it’s not the sole reason. This is where many Black nerds get things twisted.

Let me break down what I mean.

First, a lot of Black nerds are corny; we gotta tell the truth here. Can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen my fellow Black nerds do some of the most GOOFIEST nonsense at anime conventions. I mean asking female Japanese voice actors if they are single during panels when con staff repeatedly told them not to do so, standing around looking awkward and not talking to women at room parties, singing off-key to anime opening theme songs, and making speeches about the cons and attendees in front of white people who don’t care to hear their ramblings.

Next, many game-goofy Black nerd males love listening to dating and lifestyle “coaches” who tend to be mentally unstable incels with (single) mommy issues. They take in this corrupted version of the dating game as a tool to be hateful, abusive, and just downright nasty to women. It’s ruining the dating scene for those Black male nerds who got their shit together.

Finally, you have Black Nerds who are so confused and wrapped by geek culture that all they know is being a nerd – nothing else. They can tell you everything about Star Wars, Game of Thrones, the MCU, and the latest popular anime series from a niche source, but they know nothing about Black history or culture. If not that, they don’t know about dating/relationships, being a man/woman, having a tangible skillset, and having your money straight.

So, if you fall into any of the three above I mentioned, you’re corny — and not because you’re a nerd.

Anyway, to conclude this, Micheal B. Jordan is living proof that being a Black nerd isn’t corny. Even if it were corny, it’s only corny to those who will never get you and your passion. Work on bettering yourself and drive yourself to prove them wrong. But don’t think being a Black nerd and not a street dude automatically means you will become successful no matter what.

Put in that hard work to better yourself, Black male Nerd.
You’re only corny if you don’t.

Dear Black Nerds: Stop Crying To Non-Black Owned Companies About Not Being Represented (A Drunk Rant)

Disclaimer: This rant was written under the influence of alcohol.  Please enjoy!
And if anything I said offends you: Good!

Concept art of new Overwatch hero Ashe featuring one of her as a Black woman.

I’m going to be real: When I saw Blerd nerds getting in their feelings and crying about how the new Overwatch hero Ashe, wasn’t a black female,  I  laughed. Really, I did. I found great joy in seeing Black nerds bitching at Blizzard Entertainment for not featuring a black female hero ever since the game debuted in 2016.  I filled my quiet, empty house with vicious, head-splitting cackling as I skimmed through the everlasting rants of  Black nerd Twitter’s as they expressed their disappointment in Blizzard.

This does, however, begs the question: why should it be the job of Blizzard (or any other non-black owned media and entertainment company) to represent Black people and to create black characters for us?  They’re not entitled to do so.  So stop fuckin’ cryin’ and beggin’ them to do so.

I’m ain’t sorry.

Now, don’t get me wrong: Black representation (as long as it’s positive)  in media is not only a great thing, but it’s incredibly important for us.  This is especially true when it comes to young black children (as children are highly influenced by what they see in media). Black children need positive, heroic black figures and characters to look up to during their developmental stages.  But again,  this duty shouldn’t lie on the shoulders of non-white owned companies who never will experience the struggles of being Black. They shouldn’t have to carry this burden.

Do you know must carry this burden for Black people? It’s real easy to  figure this one out.

This burden must be carried by black people.

Black creatives.
Black entertainers.
Black artists.
Black producers.
Black companies.

There’s no other way around this.

If we Black folks want to see our people in the media, then it’s up to us to gather our creative forces together and build. Build something worthwhile for our people to celebrate and showcase our race in media.  We have the tools online to do so. We have social media and blogs/websites builders to spread our art to our community.

Look, we need to stop depending on other races to do the job for us.  I get it: Black people are used to being dependant on programs (Section 8, food stamps/E.B.T, welfare, trickle-down economics, etc.), but we — the true originators of  Earth — gotta stop that lazy, sit on our asses and wait for bullshit!  It’s a huge waste of time.

Do you want to know what happens when we let other races represent us while we sit on our asses? This is what happens. Ready?

They draw us in an offensive manner with overexaggerated racial features:

We’re showcased as criminals:

We’re reduced to tap-dancing, coonin’ servant roles:


Now, do you understand why we must represent our people and not get emotional when others don’t?

If you want black heroes to represent black people in video games (and other forms of media), then do it yourself. You don’t need to wait on white people to give you one. There are thousands and thousands of creative black people who are bringing us black characters in a positive light (such as Black Sands Entertainment with their comic series Kids 2 Kings). We have black people in tech who can code and program.  I’m sure they can make a game for you that features a black hero.

For real, Black people can get together with their skills, form their own video game company, and make their own games.  And sure, some of you uncreative, section 8 living, single mother having, dusty niggas who ain’t about shit and ain’t gonna do shit with your lives can say “Well, that’s a cop-out! We need to hold these companies accountable for not putting black people in their games”.

I agree with you! It’s a cop-out!  We should cop- out from mainstream society and do our own shit rather than wait for somebody to give us something.  We don’t need to wait for somebody else to do it for us and cry when they don’t do it.

Crying to these companies don’t produce results.
It only produces useless tears.

Tears that don’t do anything for anyone but for people like me to make fun of you for shedding.

Now, if you excuse me, I’m going to download some Ashe Rule 34.
