L&HH Atlanta – too real?

I’m an old head watching a reality show that the oldest member is decades younger than me.  Yes, that’s Love and Hip Hop Atlanta (L&HH Atlanta)  Mona introduced Scrapp DeLeon, 28-year-old rapper, this season  as someone we would be interested in with a little music and lots of lady drama.  Unfortunately, we viewers had to watch Scrapp DeLeon  receive a mandatory sentence for trafficking marijuana.  As a Black mother, its devastating to see how mandatory sentencing works.

I started liking Scrapp especially his interaction with his son. I can even forgive is womanizing ways because really everyone has to be in agreement for that shit to go on and on.  I mean I have seen blood sister share the same man in the same house, one being the wife and one just there.  So Tommie, Karlie and Tiarra drama is minor. The national stage shows focus on a piece of the pipeline to prison.  Mandatory sentencing.

So the judge says he wants to be lenient and gives him a 20 year sentence with the possibility for parole in 5 years and 15 years on parole.  Damn!!  I couldn’t believe it.  The sad fact that some states have legalized marijuana makes Scrapp’s case so crazy. And here, this guy has 5 years taken from his life plus pay $100,000 and the judge states he will be lenient by giving him 20 years and not 30 years.  That’s white man justice.
