There is a total shortage of role models for young people. And that’s because we’ve entered a period of time when the more outrageous you are, the faster you trend; the louder you are, the more you are heard; the bigger your headlines, the higher your LIKES; and in Kim Kardashian’s world: the less class you show, the more money you earn.
Seriously, step back and take a look at what our kids see every day.
Black Lives Matter is a racist group that targets cops and white people, but instead of being shunned and called out by the media, BLM is now considered a “movement.” Our young kids see the news footage of the BLM burning down cities because they are outraged about a black person being shot, but our kids never hear about the crime committed by the black person. So the perception becomes: “Cops are racists who kill blacks for no reason, and it’s really cool to be a protestor.”
Lavish Diamond Williams. Her boyfriend Philandro Castile has been shot. He is dying in the passenger seat of her car while in the backseat is her panicked 5-year old daughter. Instead of attending to Castile’s wounds and calming her daughter, from the drivers seat Williams grabs her iPhone and logs into Facebook so she can broadcast Castile’s final living moments on Facebook LIVE.
The media should have slammed her for acting like the attention-seeking, irresponsible drug-using mother she is. But no. Instead, Williams is praised for her steady camera work under such terrible conditions. A few weeks later she’s collecting $60k from a Go Fund Me page; she’s invited to meet with President Obama; and she makes a guest appearance on The View. She is now a “hero.”
There are so many examples I can list for you because the list goes on and on — one asinine story after the next — and it all equates to a society that has lost its way.
But there is no “movement”, no “hero”, and no “role model” who concerns me more than “the celebrity diva” also known as Kim Kardashian. The grip she has on young girls scares the daylights out of me.
She is a 35-year-old mother who acts more like a 19-year-old hooker. But nobody seems to care. Kardashian’s Twitter account boasts 48 million fans. Her Facebook page has 29 million fans. Her Instagram account bears more than 80 million fans. What did she do to achieve such fame? Kardashian appeared in a porn film that she actually video taped herself. She spent hours of recording every moment of the anal sex she had with a hip-hop artist.
But with the advent of iPhones, she’s moved past the sex tapes. She is now a solo act who takes provocative photos of herself and blasts them out on a regular basis. Instead of this being considered soft-porn, it’s considered “art” of some kind.
Instead of being deemed a low life bimbo, she is the most famous person on the internet and considered a trend-setting fashion diva.
On Tuesday night, she arrived braless to her husband’s concert in NYC. Her fans are now sharing her braless photos more than mosquitos are sharing the ZIKA virus. And who is left holding the bag? The parents of the young girls who praise her every photo.
Parents somehow have to explain to their little girls that Kim is a classless female who needs a head doctor. And somehow, we have to find the perfect answer to this question: “But daddy, she’s a millionaire with 160,000,000 fans?”
While you’re thinking of the perfect answer, I invite you to see the photos of Kardashian’s braless routine at Madison Square Garden. They are listed on Huffington Post, one of the most visited websites on the web: CLICK HERE.
