The Ragashanti Saga
Disclaimer : I’m not going to seek to defend the RagaShanti Show, if you’re a fan of his and you’ll take offence to criticisms being levelled at him; close the tab. I’m annoyed and I’m going to be ranting.
Closed it? No? Still here? Very well.
Unlike my previous blog posts, this one will have no ceremony. No introduction. It won’t sound academic and it probably won’t even make sense. I’m just annoyed that my timeline falls victim to this show so often.
Ragashanti’s show is not only annoying, but it is absolute rubbish. I remember when the show was on the radio, I marvelled at how “cayliss” Jamaican people are. I mean, if you’re gonna sex with someone, shouldn’t you at least get bus fare to go back home? I’m not here for people sexing and then have to “boom ride” to get home. I’m not here for that at all.
While some of the callers are funny, the general show is unproductive. The show was largely defended as the voice of ghetto people. And many people hit back that “uptown” people were being hypocrites by trying to get the show off the air waves. I suppose the argument was being made that it gave voice to those who are neglected in our society. That’s rubbish!
It perpetuates the ghetto mentality. Has anyone ever stopped to consider that the host has a doctorate? As in, a PhD? And the callers, for the most part, I’m assuming, have no jobs? And probably have 1 – 3 kids depending on them? These people don’t work, they stayed at home and called in to suss. How is that productive for them? How does it help them? A lot of people took offence to the criticism levelled at the show when it was on radio (by the way, I’m assuming it isn’t anymore, I heard it was pulled…feel free to correct me) but the reality is, it wasn’t helping anything. It just helped to continue a cycle of poverty, under productivity and caylissness. Now don’t get me wrong, I love caylissniss. I live for it. (Ask Karen, she can tell you), but I think the people who do nothing productive with their lives shouldn’t be encouraged to continue. That’s how I see it.
And what’s up with those who have jobs and sneak away into the bathroom to call the show AND they don’t have enough credit either? That’s a loss of productivity!

All because you called Raga’s show! See how serious it is? No? You don’t? That’s why you’re a listener of Raga’s show.
I generally had no problem with the subject matter the show covered. I just think more than 50% of the callers are lying; which defeats the purpose of the show. Why would I want to sit and listen to people call in to make up lies about their sex lives? What is this? 4th grade? Oh wait, we weren’t supposed to be having sex in the 4th grade, were we? Oh, no? We weren’t? Well, this is awkward. Anyhow, so yes. These callers grossly exaggerate their sexual experiences, I’ll pass on that.
Side Note : Is swiping eating vagina or is it eating out someone’s …? (I’m sorry – I had to ask)
Back to the Post :
What’s the benefit of the show? Entertainment? Well, I guess. I mean, it has made me laugh several times. Still, I’m not sure if it’s “haha funny” or “oh no, your life is really sad kinda funny.”
I don’t want to hear about people sexing on sinks (well I do, but IDK..not from Raga? IDK) I’m amazed at the “uppity” people on my timeline when I see you guys enjoying it. Is it that the callers say what you wish you could? You wish you could sex on the sink? Or in the bush? (I recommend bush sex by the way, very fulfilling) I digress.
Listen your Raga and shut the hell up about it. If I want to listen, I’ll do so. I’d like to tweet in peace. Thanks.
Here endeth my rant. I’m hungry and HOT! 😐
I promise my next post will be academic like and serious. 🙂
