So You Think You Have An Opinion
You know how sometimes something happens, and you, in all in all of your infinite knowledge, think… hmmmm why don’t I just leave my own two cents? And for most people, there’s that angel vs devil on the shoulder thing, where the angel tries to reason with you and save you from the fuckery you’re about to embark on, while the devil…well, does its devilish thing? Yeah well I have a theory. This angel vs. devil thing doesn’t exist for everyone. Ok you’re tired of me rambling, I get it. So what I’m really saying here is, I’ve come to the conclusion that common sense is a myth.
No seriously…common sense isn’t very common. Because if it were, WHY would someone like Christopher Maurice Brown think it’s ok to add his two (five) cents to a matter involving anything relationship? Why would a man who not only assaulted his famous ex, but impregnated another woman during his subsequent relationship think to even open his mouth? Why you ask?
For the same reason he was able to make his song “Loyal” top the charts. Because he’s a dude, and because niggas gon’ nig. I know you think I’m not being a very unserious person but just consider this: Do you know the amounts of fucks you must have run through to continuously fuck up and still find it ok to add mouth where EVERYONE knows you should be the last person speaking? Do you know the effrontery it takes to continuously disrespect and cheat on the women you’ve been publically with, yet make a song about how THEY are disloyal?
And do you want to know what the saddest part of this whole thing is? There are lots of Chris Browns around us – they are everywhere in our communities. They are our neighbors, our teachers, our fathers, our janitors, our…. You get the point. They- men who believe that regardless of what they do, they are never to be held accountable for their actions- are everywhere. Men who absolve themselves of moral responsibilities, but require only the most morally upstanding behavior from women. Men, who although they love fucking women, don’t actually LOVE women. Men, who are so far gone in this societal game of gender-based double standards, that they’re even oblivious to the fact that these standards exist. Men who expect the women they know, and even the ones they don’t know to tolerate the same fuck shit they witnessed their mothers and aunties tolerate, simply because they’re women. Men, who regardless of the amount of information this technology-driven society throws at them, choose to revel only in the purest of ignorance. Men who have accepted that they ain’t, and will never be shit. They’re everywhere. #staywoke
