Shallow in 2017
(Are You Guilty?)
By: G.Othello

Cursory, hasty, shallow, and empty-headed are just a few words associated with the term SUPERFICIAL. Needless to say, that these are terms that no one should want to be associated with. Think about it, being called “empty-headed” is not cool. Going around boasting about being “hasty” isn’t cool either. So why do we continue to subject ourselves to a superficial mindset? I really don’t know the answer to that question, but here is my observation.

I believe that everyone is self-conscious to an extent. I mean we all look in a mirror at some point in our day. We all wash and iron our clothes (hopefully). We all groom ourselves, brush our teeth (or soak them if you wear dentures) and shower (once again, hopefully). We all do those things because it is deemed necessary to an appropriate lifestyle.
But here is where being self-conscious takes a nasty turn and people become superficial. When you are being made into a villain because someone doesn’t like what you are wearing, the style of your hair, the fragrances that you use, shoes you wear, etc. When you feel that you need to spend the money you don’t have to keep up a lifestyle that you can’t afford. All of this is done because we are afraid of being judged by empty-minded people. And if you notice some of these shallow minded individuals do not have it all together themselves. So why do we still care about the opinions of hasty individuals? I believe we just want to be accepted and conforming to the ideas of an empty-minded society is easier than dealing with the constant insults spewed from some of these people.

NOT A KODAK MOMENT

By G.Othello

 

With the recent legal woes of Kevin Gates and Kodak Black, it seems as if a lot of our black music artists can’t catch a break. I mean, yes they did break the law, but how do our young brothers continue to find themselves in these situations? These are two music artists that were just beginning to take off in the music industry. Whether you rock with their music or not, they are two talented individuals in their own way. It’s as if some of these artists can’t shake their past. A lot of black music artists come from backgrounds riddled with drugs, violence and gang activity. So that lifestyle tends to follow them, but not every artist falls back into that trap. If we listen to the stories of Jay Z, Nas, and Kendrick Lamar to share a few, they lived a certain lifestyle and when they got on in the music industry, they got on. They did not look back or fall back into the lifestyle that they lived before. So I can’t help but to wonder, how did Kevin Gates and Kodak Black fall into this trap? Why are these artists who have a hit song suddenly fall into this pit where they become a product of the judicial system? Maybe their past just comes back to haunt them? Is this one of the many examples of when keeping it real goes wrong? I get it, “stupid is as stupid does” and “do the crime, do the time”. But DAMN.
