>Three + Three Questions

Posted: August 24, 2010 in arrest, chances, clinton, criminal, fans, jail, kelly, kobe, law, loyalty, moral, rihanna, sheen, t.i.

>Three Questions:
1. Do you like T.I.?
2. Are you a fan of Charlie Sheen?
3. Do you have Lil’ Wayne’s latest CD?

What do all of these guys have in common? All of them have been arrested.

What else do these guys have in common? They are all very successful at what they do.

So, when I do the math, I wonder how arrests plus moral issues equals those guys being on top in their respective games? I know! Fans will turn a blind eye to anything just as long as they like the person! Loyalty breeds ignorance, right?

I know quite a few women… not just women, but mothers, who absolutely love R. Kelly despite the fact that he filmed/desecrated a teen (and I’ll say allegedly, but we both know it was him in that video just as sure as we know O.J. did it).

I’ve heard women say that Rihanna pushed Chris Brown’s buttons as if that gave him carte blanche to go Chuck Norris upside her dome.

Robert Downey, Jr. has made a killing with the “Iron Man” movie franchise despite using more drugs than Walgreens.

Do you see my point? Do you really expect kids to learn “right” from “wrong” when it appears that “wrong” gets rewarded regularly?

Bobby Brown. Michael Vick. Tommy Lee. Lil’ Wayne. Foxy Brown. Hugh Grant. The list goes on for weeks.

Now, this is America. “The Land of Second (Third and Fourth) Chances”. As long as you at least attempt to make/fake an apology, people will like you again. Some may even try to justify your actions. I’ve heard arguments for Fantasia stealing some one’s husband saying that “she was fighting for her man”. No, she was fighting for someone else’s man. Just because you like her song “Bittersweet” doesn’t make her right.

People still support Bill Clinton despite him using his political offices for speed dating. Guys don’t care that Alicia Keys got pregnant by a married man. As long as she stays fine and sings well, she’ll be back on top.

But why? We all know that if any of those things happened in our lives, we’d be ready to swing on whoever did it and/or whoever is defending their actions.

Think about your answers at the top of the blog and then answer these three questions:
1. If T.I. was Tyrone from the neighborhood, would you let your son hang with him knowing he just got out of jail on gun charges?
2. If R. Kelly was Roscoe from around the way, would you let your daughter go to the prom with him?
3. If Chris Brown was Chad White the D.J. from the radio station, would you buy his mix CD after he went Tyson upside your baby girl’s face?

If you answered “yes” to any of the three questions at the top of the blog, then that’s okay. You can give someone a second chance so as long as you don’t try to justify what they did wrong.

If you answered “yes” to any of the top three questions, but “no” the altered question at the bottom, then maybe you need re-evaluate your way of thinking.
