I have been silent through the Kanye “crisis” and the latest trending topics, honestly I was tired of having to repeat myself and the blatant disrespect. I find that the attacks on him and his wife are unwarranted and wrong. So many of us have a difference of opinion, but when did it become ok to bash someone for thinking outside the box.
I understand what Kanye was trying to say, although I believe he worded it wrong, and honestly so many that I have seen comment on it have been saying the same thing. It seems like we have decided to take one way of thinking and make any other way unacceptable.
When did we become this way? Its like everyone is trying to look the same, be the same and live the same way. Its either a full face of makeup or none at all. If someone does something different, they are not “normal”. People either wear expensive clothes and match, or they are eclectic, there is no in between. You are either all the way Pro-Black, or you’re a Feminist, or you fight for LGBT right, not a mix, thats not “normal”. But why?
Why is being who you are unapologetically not normal? I love Kanye, because he stands up for what he believes in, regardless if I agree with him or not. I respect his opinion. Its like we don’t do that anymore.
