We are a nation filled with Sorry Ass People, all we ever do is apologize for stuff, sorry this, sorry that! Its cool, if you truly mean it, but even then, do it to those that matter not the world! I couldn’t be famous or a public figure because if they ask me why I did something, if I’m in a bad mood, I’m gonna say none of your damn business, I’m a grown ass woman & when u come live in my house & pay my bills I will go into further explanation but until then, kick rocks! Good mood response will be, “I’m human, mistakes are human, I made a mistake. Now if they’re consistent, then they become choices but I refuse to say sorry. I may apologize for my approach if I’m a little too harsh or insensitive but Im not sorry. You learn nothing from being sorry but you do learn from mistakes…if you’re smart. SN: my publicist & agent would hate me!
So dear actors, comedians, singers, athletes etc…worry about your homestead first, we (The Public) are gonna be ok, we may pretend that your actions are devastating & detrimental to our lives but we are so far removed from your life that it really doesn’t matter. We just work ourselves up in a frenzy & expect u to live by higher standards than we hold ourselves to. As far as being role models to the kids & letting them down, if you so choose, explain to them, talk to them about your actions & consequences, let them understand the real world. Let them know that sorry doesn’t heal wounds, better decisions will & to learn from your mistakes. We have to stop expecting the tv, media & stars to raise our children. We are the frontline & we must set a proper foundation for our kids & stop expecting visible strangers to do so.
On that note the SAP award goes to all the people crying out about the wrong a celebrity has done & not allowing them to move on or make amends & blaming them on the state of our children. Man up, take responsibility for your children, your community and then talk…but only if its constructive.
For example, Chris Brown, people don’t want to let him move on from the Rihanna incident which I feel is complete bullshit. She can exploit the hell out of it but he has to choose words & actions carefully. He was a young man, a young man who even grew up with domestic violence in his home, the court saw fit to give him probation & anger management classes etc, but we can’t let him live it down. People treat him like the antiChrist instead of a human. If you look in your household or even in your immediate family & start asking real questions, you will be shocked to find out how many relatives were subject to domestic violence. But guess what, after you find out, your still gonna love that person(if they have changed & sometimes even if they havent) because we all make mistakes. Get off your damn high horse! I know I crack jokes about that incident all the time but that’s what I do, I don’t think what he did was right but I also believe she played a bigger role than she initially let on, and he deserves a chance to start over. I have seen several cases. 1st hand, where the women goes to the extreme to provoke a man to strike, doesnt mean he should, but it is a factor that needs to be considered. Honestly, I couldn’t be a man, I would be in jail for domestic violence because of all the damn games women play especially if it came down to keeping my child away…Im not going, so GOD knew what he was doing when he made me a chick.
So, yes people, you are not perfect, so stop acting like it. Fight battles that matter, ramble on about real issues. Worry about your micro instead of living in the macro…u cant handle it. I am confident enough to state these things because I take initiative in my life to help my community & children & hopefully if they learn nothing else from me, they will learn to think for themselves & to be proud of who they are as they were made!
This is my Public Service Announcement
