It's 2016 and the hate culture in America is growing rapidly at a time when we need to unite as one to solve a bigger problem. That problem is ourselves. Nowadays you can't go one day without hearing something that has to do with animosity or discrimination. Whatever we do, we can't get away from it. Hate is truly the inevitable. We constantly feel the need to voice our opinions and put other people down. Why? Because we do it to feel better about ourselves. I was recently talking to Lendale Johnson from Empire on FOX.
He let me know about an email he received. This email was hateful and repulsive. Some sad, pathetic soul sitting behind a screen has the audacity to tell him to stop chasing his dream.
When I asked Lendale how he felt about the situation and what he had to say to someone like this he said "Let's be real. This is really sad, but people are going to do whatever they want. So there's no point in wasting energy on a lost cause. Stay focused, and do what makes YOU happy! If you are happy by hurting others...well, then I feel for ya, but I suggest getting some help. Find peace and love yourself first. Better yet, just listen to Justin Beiber's entire new album. Much love!" I couldn't have said it any better myself. People like this need to be stopped. These bullies need to be stopped. In high school, you might not have been able to do anything about it, but now you can. This is the real world. Donald Trump is the perfect example of someone who feeds off of bringing other people down. Trump claims to "cherish" women, but the evidence speaks for itself. When Megyn Kelly from FNN called out Trump on his sexist behavior, Trump panicked and ignored it. Later, he called Kelly a "bimbo." But Kelly isn't the first to experience the wrath of the annoying orange. Mr. Trump has also taken the time to personally insult and degrade Sarah Jessica Parker, Rosie O'Donnell, Cher, and many other influential women. His current campaign for office relies on tearing down Marco Rubio and building an imaginary wall out of his extensive collection of toupees. If Trump is elected, this hateful rhetoric will continue and will spread across America, taking us to the point of no return. We need to work together and put an end to all of this animosity. Life is too short to play games. None of us know what tomorrow will bring, so be kind and make every second count. At the blink of an eye, it can all be taken away from you.
