in today’s “GTFOHWTBS” news….
Back in March, THIS news portal wrote an article titled “The Top Ten Non-Black Owned Products That Black Folk Think Are Black Owned”. Although I wrote it back in March, I redistribute it every month to remind Black folks of their economic power. This month it really went viral, being shared by the hundreds of thousands via social media and other methods.
The original list had been shared between many journalists/bloggers for a few years now. Like most lists, no one knows who compiled it, … but the PROTOCOL is to write your OWN commentary, and give props to the last source that put you on to the info.
So imagine this MadMan’s surprise when Dr. Boyce Watkin’s site, Kulture Kritic, copied, cut and pasted (STOLE), our ENTIRE article … including our ORIGINAL written commentary and addition to the original list and passed it off as his own.
Of course being the MadMan, I put his piss color ass on notice and told him to either run me my money for using our words or take it down. His response?
YES, you simple assed fool. YOU DIDN’T write the article that is our fucking POINT!!! So why are you passing it off as your own?? You know me enough to STEAL and plagiarize MY shit, so why not just apologize, admit it and give a sister her props? How about doing your research? And since when can you steal someone’s shit and then accuse them of harassing you??
You are supposed to be a PhD… you don’t have to run around stealing my words or my work…. especially the work of other BLACK media people.
How low can you be son?
This fool used my EXACT words .. down to the “great info!” line … peep the evidence below and then check out our original article published in March of 2013 here. While the list is static and has been around for YEARS, the COMMENTARY was written in full and in whole by me.
These so called “edumacated Black folk” think that because they have a little shine, they can just piss over people who are actually DOING the work of keeping people informed. What’s a little plagiarism?… this nigga figured the MadMan was too little to make a big noise, and in typical house nigga style, underestimated this underdog’s ability to fight back. So he decided erroneously to dismiss me and try to cover his tracks… oh yea… this bitch made fool DID change the article and tried to bash WYMS in the process… saying the list is outdated, and no one cares anymore but us.
If that is true, then why the fuck did he steal it? word for word? you thought it was pretty relevant before when you took credit for it… ol herb ass nigga doesn’t even know half of the brands on the list because he is NOT from the hood. This bulbous head fraud could never understand why this article picked up traction the way it did… he just saw someone else getting shine and decided to steal it as his own, because Black folk were responding in the thousands to the information.
I urge all you bloggers and journalists out there to be diligent, cause the thievery of your work is real. I bet everything on his site is plagiarized to some degree. Speak up for yourselves! Don’t let these house negros steal your ideas or your work and think they can get away with it just because they have a larger platform. There is enough room for us all without having to STEAL.
You wonder why Black businesses Fail… look no further than what happened right here. This is why we can’t get NOWHERE as a people.
so FUCK YOU Boyce “Stick ‘Em” Watkins… you Charlie Brown head ass fraud…. EXPEDITIOUSLY.
I bet you know me now son.
