Winners and Losers

Rant-(website)A recent online article caught my attention, about a young rapper/comedienne who posted a video mocking obese people. Her “Dear Fat People” video is a vulgar and hateful taunt against people who weren’t endowed with slim bodies like hers.

These kinds of attacks on regular folk by people of privilege are becoming too commonplace, and irk me to no end. Especially when these people have gotten to where they are because of fans many of whom may be the same people they’re mocking. When did being humble and grateful for one’s blessings in life give way to cocky, rude, and tactless bragging and tasteless ridicule? I have a few thoughts on this.

About wordswithbrad

Let's see. I guess first and foremost I am a life wanderer on a journey of discovery and experience. Can you tell I am a child of the sixties? Along the way I have become many things ... a College Professor (now retired after 28 wonderful years), a writer of both fiction and nonfiction, a singer/songwriter, a musician, an artist, a world traveler, a fan of science fiction and history, and a student of human nature. But my greatest accomplishments are being father to two of the most amazing and accomplished young men I have ever known, and husband to the incredible and delightful woman who made that possible.
