Back in the day, you actually had to insult someone and / or their family members in order to start an argument or a fight. These days, just disagreeing with someone can get the evil eye shot your way. That’s right. Freedom of speech? Hmmph! Just your opinion can set someone off. The U.S. is so politically correct now that you can’t even speak what you think is the truth.
This country is gone softer than a rain-soaked marshmellow in 100 degree weather.
What happened to having “tough skin?” What happened to “sticks and stones?” What happened to “agreeing to disagree?” I’ve seen “friends” on Twitter unfollow one another because of a disagreement about someone neither of them actually knew. Two ladies were going back and forth arguing about the music group, Maroon 5. One lady liked them, but the other one didn’t think they were that talented of a group. The lady who liked them got so upset that M5 were being called “non-talented” that she blocked the other lady from her tweets.
A) You’re angrily defending someone you don’t even know.
B) You’re blocking someone on Twitter that you do know.
C) You’re doing all of the above simply because someone disagrees with you.
Wow. How sad is your life? A person can’t even disagree with someone now without some sort of retribution. This is the society that we live in today. I’ve had people unfollow my blog because of an opinion I had that may have hit too close to home for them. I’ve had other black people call me a “sellout” if I disagree with Obama on something. I had someone take a personal shot at me by calling me “old” because I made a comment about a young, talentless rapper. “Aw, did I hurt your wittle feelings when I said that Soulja Boy sucked?”
“Was it when I said that having seven kids by five guys may lead to the children being non-productive in life that caused a boo-boo on your ego?”
“Or was it me saying that if Troy Davis was as good-looking as Casey Anthony that he might still be alive today that stings you?”
Well, if that’s the way things are going to be, then it’s going to be a cold and lonely country 20 years from now. No one will ever talk to anyone else because eventually, they’ll say something that disagrees with them. As for me, I’m going to keep on speaking my mind. It’s what I do. Not out of malice, but out of disgust and concern.
And if it has absolutely nothing to do with you and / or your family, then to quote the youngsters: “Why you mad? Does the wittle baby need a cookie-wookie to turn that frown upside down?”
