Keeping It Real Stupid

I think it is about time we started to seriously evaluate our behavior, maybe even, what we say. The latter will be hard for me since I consider myself a writer, but I do try to control the unnecessary use of suggestion that may serve no beneficial purpose to anyone.

It seems as if our culture, that which we claim to be ours is lost in space. I will provide two examples of this. In a concert recently up South - in Massachusetts, one Clifford Harris was briefly upset. His performance was at Bentley College's for their Spring Day 2007. The college is a business school that offers graduate and undergraduate degrees. From what ahs been reported, some one tossed a water balloon at the Atlanta hip-hop mogul and he went ballistic, even to the point of offering 50,000 for the head of the perpetrator.

Although some would say that folk is only keeping it real, I would like to arguer that he is not and that on real he is keeping is “Real Stupid”. First, a water balloon, I bet if he came on stage throwing them at the audience, he would not think anything about it. More importantly, you offer that much money as if you are ordering a hit, for a person to be killed over a water balloon may suggest that you got other issues at hand. Not to mention, it is suggested that snitching is bad, yet you are offering to buy information to do harm to someone.

Please someone should tell Mr. Clifford Harris that it is suggestions such as his that make people think it is ok to offer money to hurt people over minor acts, or even to commit violence over something petty such as throwing a water balloon. It is not. A real man would have laughed it off. That is what is wrong with our folks today, besides it is not like one was protecting his family.

I don't follow the hip hop genre, although there are a few artist whose music I have found myself bobbing my head to--but the realism of it all is I just don't get the hype...As far as this situation is concerned-I would imagine that incidences such as the one you are referring to probably happens-often...I'm sure I am wrong to think this way-but to me there is no difference between a hip hop rapper and a thug/gang banger.

You have to almost put your self in their shoes and anticipate what that type of person is going to discard or read. It is difficult but you give it an honest attempt you might get more responses than deletes. Jason , california auto insurance
