I got 2 Things to get off my chest right now. I'm not gonna be too serious on this joint too often, but there is always a moment where you need to let folks know the real. And the real today is A: People Need to Stop Complaining about the relief aid being sent to Haiti, and B: John Mayer needs to be duffed in the mouth.
OK, A, why are people complaining about the blessings being given to the Haitian people? Yes, we all got together and raised a large amount of money to give to Haiti(don't forget to make your donation, people are still suffering and dying over there. Check the page for the link), in the midst of this country being in a financial crisis. If anything, this really makes a statement as far as what are true standing is on this planet, where we can be considered "in financial crisis" but still have the means to help another country recently struck by disaster and tragedy. Bottom line, helping those people over there was the "Human" thing to do, period. You wouldn't ignore a man who you saw shot, dying in the street would you? Yes, we have our own problems in America, but we need to really put our issues in perspective. Those people out there live like shit, period. They come out here to the States, see folks who live in the impoverished areas and are like, "Ya'll muhfuckas is RICH"! A large percentage of those people out there live in houses with rusted tin roofs, dirt floors and no running water. That's ALL some of those people had, and now they don't even have that because it was destroyed by an earthquake whose total force was equal to that of the A-Bomb that was dropped in Hiroshima, Japan. It would've been a crime NOT to help those people.
B, I think John Mayer is gonna have to get extra security. He just shot himself directly in the foot with his recent comments in an interview with Playboy. It does not surprise me though because this mentality is still prevalant in our country. What did your boy say in "A Soldier's Story", oh yeah, "They Still Hate YOU!"
Now this is not relevant to all people, but there are a large percentage of white people who do feel this way(And Vice Versa, just because your black don't mean your not racist. Hating someone for the color of their skin is just foul). The same ones who eat, drink, work, and play with black people are the same ones who would lose their minds if their daughter brought a black man home to announce their engagement. John should be a little extra ashamed of himself though. He plays the damn blues guitar for God's Sake! He recieves all types of props and accolades from Black Artists and has millions of Black fans. Yet, he felt bold enough to say some shit like that in a worldwide distributed publication! Did he not realize the magnitude of what he was saying. Did he not recognize the ramifications a statement like this could cause him. What's frightening is that it may not cost him a thing. We as African Americans don't seem to hold our women up to a high enough standard to begin with. We might just ignore it and say, "FUck it, I love that dudes music anyway, who cares who he fucks". We did it with R.Kelly, right, "Cuz He Good!" Who cares if someone else added to the already too prevalent mindstate that black women aren't beautiful. Oh Well, I can only do what I do and I am a hater anyway so, NOW DELETING COMMON FT JOHN MAYER-GO.
