Will you went from Hero to Zero in 1 second.
We all get vexed but you being a very privileged role model should know better.
You made it to the color blind zone and blew it.
What is The Color Blind zone?
Few whites have walked a mile in a black persons shoes to understand the statement- The Color Blind Zone. That is where every black person wants to get, where they are not labeled by the color of their skin but their character and ethics. That is not too much to ask, but it seems to be near impossible to be just a person, not a "Black" person for the average black in America. Mr Will Smith you had made it to The Color Blind Zone. A few blacks have reached that summit over the years, OJ Simpson, James Earl Jones, Oprah, Tom Hanks, Morgan Freeman, Michael Jackson, Simone Biles and Michael Strahan to name just a few. But you blew it Will. Think of all your young fans that watched you sucker punch Chris Rock and what they took away from Americas Favorite Actor for the rest of their lives.
Just for the record dumb dumb, your wife Jada is smokin hot with or without hair. She is one of the Sexiest Women In The World. She did not need defending using violence. Intellect would of been far better or at the very least, jump Chris Rock in the bathroom and not on camera. (Old School). Your only defense now is that your gift bag of swag had a can of WhopAss and you did not read the label carefully when you opened it right before you went tribal.
Now for the CURE- Will, you at the very least, should let Chris Rock knock fire from your face on national TV and then have Jada smack both of you. That would be a pay per view extravaganza and I for one would buy the first ticket. The sad part is we won't be buying your movie tickets anymore. Welcome to the basement dude. You have arrived. Sucker punching someone is not in the American Hero playbook and it is certainly NOT COOL.
The recent nominee of Ketanji Brown Jackson has done her and us a serious disservice.
We can all see she is a black woman but her greatest attribute is truly a far greater American first. No other Supreme Court nominee has ever spent time as a Public Defender (NEWS FLASH-no money in that). That says more about her character and experiences than any propaganda piece could ever convey. Anyone can look at the current group and see what is missing, certainly not Harvard Law degrees. (That was not a overnight coincidence either.) No great mystery there. I'm just afraid our nation is looking right thru her and missing her greatest asset. She brings to the Top Legal Universe a deeper understanding of real life having walked a mile in the trenches of the less fortunate. She brings a unique mindset that has been lacking in our gavels across the land for many years. Congratulation Ketanji Brown Jackson, in our world you are by far the most qualified person who has ever been offered the job. Black or White. Male or Female. PERIOD
If you have not read her book, In Pieces, you should if you want to see what persistence and hard work accomplishes. She had a far from a perfect life, but managed to pull it all together and become the essence of what makes America Great. Someone suggested to put her face on Mt. Rushmore, instead of Trump, as a symbol of the can do spirit of our great nation. Sally we love you and thank you for sharing a piece of you with us.
In case anyone did not get the memo from Mother Earth recently, let me do the math for you. Hotter ground temperatures result in more moisture taken into the air and we all know what goes up must come down. In our current world, unfortunately, it comes back as a Rain Bomb. We can spend the next ten years debating Climate ( NOTE: first film to sound the alarm was in 1982 - see it here for free) but in the meantime what are we going to do about rising sea levels and destructive weather patterns. This is going to be like musical chairs except the seat is for safe housing and sustainable lifestyles. Not everyone is going to be happy with the outcome to say the least. We are all vulnerable to tornadoes, extreme heat and flooding. Supply chain disruptions and a host of other realities are just the tip of this self created problem, what are we waiting for?
With our country so divided, who is going to lead the effort to put the United back into United States?
Is it even possible?
We can't even get a handle on our carbon footprint, plastic pollution and the slow disappearance of drinkable water much less being civil to one another.
Billionaires taking joy rides to outer space and millionaires travel the globe on their private flying palaces. The line in the sand moves often, depending on how much money you have or can even be totally erased if you have the Presidential Magic Wand.
This "I want to save the planet" but we have to do it Tuesday because I'm taking my jet to Maui for the weekend" attitude is not going to get the job done. There is no Planet B we can go to until "they" get it fixed. We are the last line of defense.
