Let’s face the music… Joe Walsh is an apparent attention whore. He, just like Donald Trump, blurts out absurd things on various forms of media and revels in the reaction that he gets from decent people.
You will never be able to convince him he’s wrong, you will never be able to have a decent conversation, because everything for Joe is just ‘me me me me me‘. He will never be interested in the truth.
But I am interested in the truth of things… you should be too…
The truth is that Stevie wonder is one of America’s pervasive cultural icons.
You will find him mentioned throughout media, in TV shows, in movies, everywhere.
And for good reason.
He was born six weeks premature which, along with the oxygen-rich atmosphere in the hospital incubator, resulted in retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), a condition in which the growth of the eyes is aborted and causes the retinas to detach; so he became blind.Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stevie_Wonder
Stevie Wonder is blind and black.
The man was disadvantaged from day one.
But that didn’t stop him from living a life of music… at the age of 11 he was already signed to a label. He went on to make music that is now part of every American’s cultural heritage. Entire generations have grown up with his work.
The thought that Stevie Wonder, of all people, is ungrateful is beyond absurd. As an artist, there is no better way to show your gratitude than to make something for the world. Stevie Wonder has done so over and over again.
Frankly, it is distressing for me to hear an angry old white dill weed call a black man ungrateful. In my life, I have never heard a phrase said with more scorn then when asinine old white folk say “ungrateful black“.
They say the phrase with such hatred, contempt, with evil in their hearts.
They don’t even say the n-word with as much contempt as they say “ungrateful black“. To them, the n-word is merely a descriptor. But for a black fellow to be ungrateful… ungrateful of what the whites have given them… ungrateful for the things that they as blacks don’t deserve… is disgusting. They legitimately think that black people should shut up, never complain, because they’ve already been allowed what they have now.
It is an absolutely horrible way to think, a disgusting phrase, a damn shame on our society that anybody would describe a fellow american in such a manner. If we want to talk about ungrateful people, we should talk about Joe Walsh. After all… it is the rights granted to him by the American Constitution that allow him to say contemptible things.
People complain about swearing… and then go on and think that using filthy phrases like “ungrateful black” is okay. That it’s okay to say the n-word because “black people say it why cant i???”
The “f-word” has absolutely nothing on “ungrateful black“.
You can’t base your life on other people’s expectations.
