Truth On Ice

Where truth collides with your face!

S0 yes; I am sad to announce that Virtue in our generation of women has officially died. For you lug heads out there allow me to define virtuous. 

vir·tu·ous

Pronunciation: \ˈvər-chə-wəs, ˈvərch-wəs\
Function: adjective
Date: 14th century

1 : potent, efficacious
2 a : having or exhibiting virtue b : morally excellent : righteous <a virtuous decision>
3 : chaste

synonyms see moral

 

vir·tu·ous·ly adverb

vir·tu·ous·ness noun

So it’s pretty much an elegant word to describe being morally chaste or modest. Pretty much everything women in enertainment today do not represent.

It’s just different nowadays. There used to be a time when you could turn on television and women would be covered up but it was still considered attractive. When the girl next door was what guys liked. Now it’s seems as if being a stripper or a hooker is the look to go for. The number one ladies in the music industry are not doing much to vito these standards either. You’ve got Beyonce, Niki Minaj and Lady Gaga; 3 of the most influential women in music,style and fad right now leading the young women of today;and this is what they choose to look like:

Yes these influential powerful women who have a monopoly on our young girl’s eyes and ears today choose to dress and behave provocatively. They claim it’s no big deal. They claim they are empowering women to own their sexuality. They claim to be free of the obligations and standards that society has placed on women. (i.e barefoot in pregnant in the kitchen.)

What I don’t understand is why owning your sexuality means you have to look like you’re selling it?

It’s no shocker that today’s youth SERIOUSLY lack the respect and dignity that older generations used to have. They are a mass of militant,rebellious, stupid children acting under the guise of being “free” or “grown”. They are not free. They are just a slave to fad. Period.

Our very impressionable youth should not have to be bombarded by sex,drugs, money and mayhem everytime they turn on the television. They are enamoured by the allure of the things they hear about in these songs. I’m specifically targeting our young girls though because my eyes are simply exhausted from seeing all of the teen moms, prostitutes, and drop outs that plague our neighborhoods.

They can’t escape it. Some of the most notable pop stars Brittany Spears, Mariah Carey, Lindsay Lohan and Hannah Montana all started out as wholesome artists/actresses. The moment they turned legal they decided that being an adult meant being a slut…or at least dressing like one. This is the message that they are sending to our kids. Niki Menaj is a self proclaimed “Black Barbie”. Sooooo that’s just translates to cheap, plastic, and fake. Is this what the young girls should aspire to be? With statements such as “Step your pussy game up” and “Yea I ate the box” it’s no wonder that young girls today have the worst mouths ever. Have you ever listened to a group of young girls talking recently? Girl talk is more like porn talk. Hurts my ears.

Now the reality  is these artists at the minimum are being paid to be scandalous. Ummm but your daughter is not being paid to look like a naughty school girl. She’s in fact being kicked out of school. That’s always helpful.

While I’m pointing my self righteous finger though let’s not forget that some of the blame falls on the parents as well. If discipline was enforced and kids got a good whooping from time to time a lot of this mess could be avoided. Spare the rod spoil the child…I’m just saying. Alot of parents have bequeathed the responsibility of child rearing to television. Go figure.

I can rant and rave and holler about this all day long.

But it’d be pointless. Because you know what? The people who have the so called power to change it; are not going to. However…if you are a parent, an older brother, an older sister, cousin, aunt, uncle: TALK to these young girls! You do your part. Unless of course you’re one of those old fogies who try to act young.

You’re instructed to go sit in a corner and think about what you’ve done.

As always folks it was a pleasure.

*Disclaimer- The contents of this blog maybe found offensive; please read at your own discretion.

I know you probably read the title of this blog and scratched your head quizzically.

What is polite racism? Polite racism is racism that is thinly veiled by seemingly harmless compliments which are really more like insults. Most people who engage in polite racism don’t even realize that they are being racist. They think that they are being nice.The Ku Klux Klan thought they were too. Polite racists don’t walk around in hooded sheets.

They look like normal regular people. They cross the street when they see me coming. They lock their doors in fear in parking lots. They clutch their pocket books closer to their body as I pass them by. They follow me around stores under the guise of “helping me” but really making sure I don’t steal. They do it all with a smile. They have a look of shock on their face when I open my mouth and speak.

Why you speak so well! I have been told. Why should that be a surprise? I also dot my i’s and cross my t’s; do you want to give me an award for that? Don’t get me started on the responses I get when people find out I listen to music other than Hip Hop and R&B. Or that I enjoy pastimes such as reading, writing and art. Or that I’m not on welfare. Or that I actually have a stable household. Gasp.

Polite racists feel the need to convey their disdain for “my kind” at the same time as trying to be comfortable with the idea of being around a black person. True story: I was hanging with a friend of mine who just happens to be Italian. Her family is notoriously racist. We went to visit her aunt who is well known for her thoughts on black folk. Nonetheless she invites me into her home. We engage in conversation. A little witty banter and casual talk. My friend’s cousin says to her mom “Hey did you know her mom is part white?” Suddenly a light bulb clicks in her head.

“Well that explains it!” she says. Of course now it’s my turn to scratch my head quizzically. “Explains what?” Matter of factly she tells me that it is the reason that I was so polite, spoke well, had ‘good hair’ and high cheek bones. How do I respond? I want to yell. I want to tell her how ignorant she is. I want to beat her over the head. But of course I will just be confirming her preconceived notions about black people. So I am silent. You can’t cure a life time of ignorance in a 10 minute lecture.

People want to believe that racism doesn’t exist anymore. That it was washed away with civil rights leaders such as Martin Luther King Jr., absolved with marches on Washington, obliterated by Obama being in office. It’s quite the opposite. People are just as racist today as they were then but just nicer about it. The way I view it is you can wrap a piece of feces up in a box and put a bow on it but it still stinks.

I’d like to believe that now a days people are beyond the color of skin. That all men are created equal is a thought in everyone’s mind…but sadly it is not.If you’re reading this and have had similar thoughts and conveyed similar actions such as those discussed here…you’d do well to ask yourself:

Am I a polite racist?

*side note:

Polite racism does not apply to just white people…this applies to any person of any race who looks down upon any other race. I’m just saying.

So…I figured before you started reading my blog you MIGHT actually care to know a little bit about me. I choose to skip all of the boring tidbits like age, race, weight, height, how many kids, astrology sign, etc. and just jump right into the important things that make me. Here goes nothing: I sleep naked…I sing when I’m taking a poop because it helps me concentrate…I absolutely love musicals and I often reenact them in my head…I sing in the shower…check out Shower Classics Volume 1…I squat in public when I’m trying to get a wedgie out although I think from now on I’m just going to go with the more direct approach and dive right in…I happen to think all things Star Trek & Star Wars are the best thing that could have ever happened to Sci-Fi…I like to read biographies…preferrably ones that the author had absolutely no kind of authorization to write…I think that there are A LOT of conspiracies involving our government…in fact since typing that statement I am %100 sure that my blog will now be on some top 10 list the government has created to keep an eye on any ideas that fall out of line with the the “norm”…although my coworker Leo the Great insists these things just don’t happen…

It does happen Leo..it does… I don’t believe in magic but I do believe in cover ups!

I think that having sex at least twice a day keeps me healthy…I believe that brandy cures every ailment especially the common cold… my philosophy on life is being angry is pointless so you should spend more time doing more productive things liiiike…shaving your legs, dancing in the rain…plucking under arm hairs…raising and lowering your eyebrows to increase muscle productivity in your forehead…play the ukele on your nose….I don’t know anything other then spending hours of your day ranting and raving about things that have no relevance in the grand scheme of things….I picked my nose as a kid and ate my boogers because they were salty…maybe I was lacking something in my diet…I hate the locker room at the gym because I’m constantly acosted by saggy middle aged and elderly breast and very hairy vaginas…it’s kind of gross and makes me want to vomit..

.

I ALWAYS have an opinion about everything and I often have to wrestle internally with keeping my mouth shut so as not to offend others…great thing I have this blog because I’m pretty sure I will be venting here….moist things give me the creepies i.e mud, wet trash, dirty snow…etc. basically when it rains or snows; walking outside takes a tremendous amount of guts for me! Look…I could go on forever and ever giving you tidbits about moi…but I actually have to work….so until next time folks…
