The herd mentality is a true issue here in America. I have witnessed and participated in it, and I'm sure that the vast majority of people online have as well. At times, I wonder if we were stronger as individuals before the advent of social media, because we were only beholden to our own opinions, and not to be part of the larger crowd. I wonder if it will get better or worse in the future, and then I giggle my head off, because if people who should remember what it was like to have your own opinion and walk to the beat of your own drum are following the thoughts and beliefs of others just because they are popular or loud or funny on social media, what chance do kids who have never known anything except for life in social media have? 

I have video of people rising as a unit to shout down someone who did nothing to deserve it. I have video of one person in the back of a mob, whispering how the mob was wrong. I have memories of people viciously assaulting people on social media because they thought that their friend's feelings might have been hurt, and I, myself, have ignored the cries of dozens of young black women because I liked their assaulter's music. 

I'm saying. We can all do better, if we all first admit that we have a huge problem. 

Donald Trump is likely going to win the primary based off of a herd mentality. That's scary. And crazy. 

171 trans women and men were killed in the last year. There is likely more, because the media keeps misgendering them, and the herd doesn't mind. That's sad.

I swear that I had more to talk about. I had a whole docket of information to discuss, and I was ready to have a great show full of information, insight and laughter.
But then I saw yet ANOTHER person commenting on ‪#KarlaLee‬, and why she was SO WRONG for using funds from Go Fund Me to purchase a car instead of giving it back to the public after she buried Tyshawn.
And then I saw yet ANOTHER person telling people how selfish Karla was for being a stripper, and that she had planned to buy the car even before she planned on burying her son.
AND THEN I saw a company putting her down, and disrespecting the memory of her child. I hope they go bankrupt.
AND THEN... I saw a post from someone who said that Karla likely set her son up to be killed so that she could get a car.
THAT SERIOUSLY WAS TYPED BY SOME RANDOM PERSON ABOUT SOMEONE WHO JUST LOST THEIR CHILD.
What kind of fuckery is this? Why can't we just grieve with Karla, and let her grieve her child? Why does your opinion have to be there? Why does your opinion matter?
Why do people have such a desire to kick this mother, this black woman, this strong person of color, when she is down?
WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?

So I won't blame your child for your poor parenting decisions. I think that is an important statement that must be made. If you decide to allow your five year old to go to school in the snow with flip flops on, I will silently give them shoes and I will judge YOU. If you let your child stay up all night every night, and then they fall asleep in class, I will judge YOU. And if you place a sign on a telephone pole in a neighborhood asking people to not pass out candy with nuts, gluten or dairy in it because your kid has an allergy?
Let's just say that this episode has a bit of judging. Also, I talk about Beyonce, Shawn and Blue Ivy, and why you shouldn't be worried about what other people say about your parenting.
See what I did there? See how it works out. This is Single Simulcast.
Oh. Also, due to this being called Family Business and all, I featured music from my family. So you will hear classic Charlie Muscle, and Kaola Wusii, and Anthony L Coleman, and Roosevelt Moore, and Japp Cougnitty, and Reek Dawg Tha Hogg, and Mac Dre and Me. Just so you know. Some of it was produced by Kellen Esque.

Would you like for someone to come to your child's graduation and tell you that nigras can't go to Heaven? How about if they said that the whites can't go? Then why are we okay with a pastor telling homosexuals that at a graduation? What correlation is there between salvation and graduation? If I hear one more pastor say some shade under the guise of "The Lord Put This On My Heart", I'm going to lose it.
Also, cop does fucked up cop shit in Texas and white people defend him. This is Single Simulcast.

I've realized that I am not what people would call normal. I have a Christian upbringing, but I believe very much in things that would turn a good, Christ like person into dust. A while ago, I was called a "Fake Christian". It seemed hurtful then, but now it seems apt.
I think I like it. In fact, I think I'm evolving.
