Kodak Black Pleads Guilty In Gun Case

by Joseph Leveston

Greetings and salutations, family. Call the aunties because it seems as though Kodak Black will be, in fact facing charges in a federal weapons case in which he stood trial over. Sources report that in May of this year, Kodak was charged with falsifying information for the purchase of three firearms. Within that same month, a U.S. District Court judge labeled him as a "danger to the community" and was detained until trial. To this day, he remains in custody. Kodak initially entered a plea of innocent, even though he entered a guilty plea during a hearing in Miami court Thursday.

Prosecutors have also speculated that one of the guns found on the scene of a shooting occurring in March was purchased by Kodak with the aforementioned falsified applications. His sentencing has been set for Nov. 13th. It has been suggested that racial profiling was at the epicenter of Kodak's arrest, as assumed by his team. According to attorney Bradford Cohen in an interview with TMZ, the police looked into his client's record without a warrant. Cohen also reported that there was an undercover detective in the store the same day that Kodak purchased his firearms but why? What probable cause could there have been for an undercover detective to have been there the same day that Kodak purchased his firearms. It definitely alludes to foul play.

Kodak was arrested at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens May 11th, moments before he was slated to perform at Rolling Loud. He's facing being charged for making a false statement in connection with the acquisition of a firearm, the max penalty being 10 years with three years of supervised release although prosecutors have stayed that they'll push for a lighter sentence than the maximum based on Kodak's cooperation thus far. Let me just say this: even after it has been proven time and time again that the Black community isn't an overall danger as Kodak has been labeled, here he is being threatened with the maximum penalty for what "anyone else" would have received a slap on the wrist for. Will Kodak serve 10 years in prison? Absolutely not because it's been proven time and time again that money can and will get you out of any real trouble.

Let's think about the flip side, though. What if he weren't famous? What if he didn't have access to the money that he has? I think we all know the answer to these questions. If he's proven to have actually falsified these documents, then he should be held accountable. HOWEVER <comma> we all know that because of the melanin in which his skin possesses, he'll be judged in a harsher manner because since the beginning of American civilization, anyone darker than khaki was and is still believed to be a threat to those in power. Kodak Black, you have my prayers because in all honesty, this shouldn't even be a story.

With all that's going on in the world that actually threatens and continuously tears at the already tattered fabric of American society, how is Kodak Black allegedly falsifying documents to buy firearms even measure up to that when we literally have government officials lying to our faces? The person that most of white America elected to run the country (I'm not calling him the President, I just simply refuse) has lied the entire time he's been in office, has been proven to have lied and yet he's still there sending us to hell in a hand basket. With all of that currently happening, Kodak Black somehow is being given this type of attention.

I know the Hoteps are notorious for saying that we're being distracted but this is one of the few times that I actually agree with them because, no shade, Kodak Black isn't famous enough for this to even matter but anything to take attention from the bigger picture, I suppose. I'm not even going to say "stay woke" because that phrase is meaningless at this point but what I will say is be ye not so easily swayed from those things that threaten our peace. Blessings...
