The Lies We Tell...

Reality check! People love to look down their noses at people who they think are lower than them. We see it every day, but occasionally it reaches a stage to where I think it needs to be addressed. At some point in life the world's population was either young, stupid, or a combination of both. This mentality that you can fuck up and get forgiveness but are unwilling to forgive other people is one of the major flaws of our nation.

Life is a constantly evolving hypocrisy. The judicial system is sometimes considered a joke because within it, there is no consistency, but the reality is that in today's society it's completely possible for serious crimes to carry a lighter penalty than minor offenses.

I jokingly posted a tweet today to Chris Brown (@MechanicalDummy)where I suggested that perhaps he should have thrown bullets at Rihanna instead of physically putting his hands on her. It was all in good fun, but the point I was trying to achieve is that it's become socially acceptable for rappers to throw bullets at each other and there is little to no backlash. I do not condone violence in any way, shape or form, but to look down at one person who behaved violently without a weapon but to openly accept his peer's violent behavior with an automatic weapon sends out a contradictory message. When is enough, enough? This is the precise reason that the world hates Americans. We walk around so smug like our shit doesn't stink like everyone else's. News Flash****It does!!!!

I just ask that you look at yourselves before you stand at someone else's judgement. You are not perfect and neither is he or she. Time to wake up and make a change; a change that will make a better world for us all.
