“Hate the game, nigga, hate the game.” -John Conyers
Well, it looks like John Conyers’ fast lifestyle finally caught up with him.
He’d been in the game for 90 years, but some day, every nigga gonna get his.
Dat’s da game.
Former Michigan Rep. John Conyers, the longest-serving black member of Congress and founder of the Congressional Black Caucus who resigned in 2017 amid sexual harassment allegations, has died in his sleep, Fox News confirmed.
Detroit police said the 90-year-old former congressman, a Democrat, died at his home on Sunday, apparently of natural causes.
Conyers became one of only six black House members when he was won his first election by just 108 votes in 1964. The race was the beginning of more than 50 years of election dominance: Conyers regularly won elections with more than 80 percent of the vote, even after his wife went to prison for taking a bribe.
He served for years as chair and ranking Democrat of the House Judiciary Committee.
But after a nearly 53-year career, he became the first Capitol Hill politician to lose his job in the torrent of sexual misconduct allegations sweeping through the nation’s workplaces. A former staffer alleged she was fired because she rejected his sexual advances, and others said they’d witnessed Conyers inappropriately touching female staffers or requesting sexual favors.
Conyers denied the allegations but eventually stepped down, citing health reasons, saying his legacy couldn’t be diminished after 53 years in office.
Wait, this “nigger” died of “natural causes”?
Well, he’d be the first.
Probably also the first “nigger” to use a position of power to get sex too, amirite king?
