Girls Wear Earrings|
Nephews, little cousins and even some older lost-in-time OGs are cascading through life, on the job, in the mall, at the club, wearing glittery earrings; some wear one while some, wretchedly befuddled brothers are wearing two, one on each ear. Now, trends sooner or later come and go but this one has got to go, sooner than later.
Church pastors, professors and teachers, pro athletes, of course rappers and singers, and entertainers are sporting earrings making some sort of statement but beat the hell outta anyone what the hell the statement is. Explain this statement. What possible words can convince society to listen to someone who is borderline transvestite?
This girlish trend has opened doors to feminist behavior in Black men, especially on the movie screen, where entertainers like Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, and Tyler Perry are cross dressing playing the roles of elderly Black women with attitudes. Where the hell did this come from? Each woman is a ghetto-bred sister with an attitude. Is this some sort of social prestigious image Blacks want?
Sorry, but the old school was a better school. It was funded a little better than today's new school, it was more respectful of gender than the new school, it had actual books, it taught identity and everyone knew their place. This new school is the result of confusion, self-hatred, and feminism.
Hopefully time will clear up this confusion in young Black men. They will some day understand what being a man really is. Go ahead and wear your earrings and you actors cross-dress until you start your period, but if our daughters ever come home sporting a moustache, we know the new school is completely bankrupt of funding.
