Humanity fail on my part!

Morning Party People!

I know it's been awhile since I've written anything on here, it's been awhile since I've done anything truly creative to be frank. I'm feeling the effects of it for sure.

I'm not sure that this post would be considered creative so let's just say it's mildly productive.

In the past two weeks I've fallen down two YouTube rabbit holes. One being African Americans reacting to heavy metal music. The other one being updates on Tekashi 69 vids.

For those of you who don't know , Tekashi 69 is a rapper from New York that sports an insane amount of face tattoos and rainbow colored hair. I listened to 1.5 of his music videos so I am no means an expert. I will say that his music has some catchy bits and is very aggressive , so I get why young men would dig it.His other skill seemed to be with social media and trolling. Most of which seems to be working against him.

The past week the artist was arrested and charged with some serious crimes such as racketeering, robbery, and drug distribution. The kind of charges that would make you pray for just being charged with domestic violence. Now I'm no legal expert, hell I'm not any kind of expert, but I'm pretty sure they're going to say that everything Tekashi 69 posted on line was for entertainment only.

It reminds me of Schrodinger's Paradox, a concept my friends Amy and Aaron told me about. It states that a person's words are totally serious until another person gets pissed and confronts them, at that point the previous statement "miraculously"  turns into a joke and was never meant to be taken seriously. The social media generation uses this rule quite often.

You're not the only one's who do this kids, you're just the generation that grew up in this new environment and see the world just a little bit differently than the one previous generations grew up in.Lucky you.

I think the next generation will have a rediscovery of honor and integrity. Meaning they'll have to find a way to create( or recreate) a level of value to one's own word. It used to mean something, then we found loopholes, then we lessened the value, and then the internet came along and flipped the game board all together. So congratulations young people, it's up to you to save humanity....or maybe just yourselves for right now, but you get the idea.

Till next time Party People,
Keep on a Chooglin!
