SLIM THUG VERSUS THE WELL RESPECTED IN OUR COMMUNITY!
I recently read a comment on the Insite left by a self righteous reader. That reader basically chastised anyone who happens to associate with a rapper. Specifically, the anonymous reader was referring to Houston rapper Slim Thug. He or she essentially said they wouldn’t want to be associated with him. I thought about the comment as I approved it. Then I realized this reader is probably a person who would rather be associated with someone who is well educated, rich, respected in the community, and on every ‘A’ list in town. Then I thought about all the people who would’ve made it on that list at some point. The list is pretty exclusive and long: Ken Lay, Bernie Maddoff, Sir Allen Stanford, Jeffrey Skilling, Paul Greenwood, Stephen Walsh, Andrew Fastow and the list goes on. At one point all these were very well respected people in various communities. Men millions of people in some form of fashion looked up to and adored. These are also the men who have been found guilty or are currently accused of making a plum fool out of those who trusted them. Then I realized I’d probably prefer being friends with Slim Thug who may have used the ‘F’ and ‘N’ word in a song but he didn’t steal my retirement and walked way with my entire financial future. Just a thought from The Insite!
