Another older post i did from another blog back on 7-8-12
I was driving past a group of school students today and it occurred to me how screwed up our society is. Our generation (X) is to blame..why? Lets think about this. 14 years ago i graduated high school. Our generation started the baggy pants hangin off our ass look. We had the “gangster” movies, such as Menace to Society, Boyz in the Hood, Colors, Reservoir Dogs, south central…etc. NWA was saying ” Fuck the Police” We heard Ice T scream ” Cop Killer”. Who, ironically played a cop on NBC. Ice Cube was preaching “I didnt even have to use my A-K, Today was a good day”. Now he stars in Disney movies. Tupac and Snoop said ” aint nothin but a gangsta party” . Tupac is dead and Snoop sold out. Rap music hasn’t changed in the past 14 years….its the same shit just recycled. You can rap about ass, titties, bitches and what not for only so long. The internet was just getting started. If we needed to look up something for school we had to go to the library and get a book. There are people i know today who i graduated with that still do drugs…still fuck around. When is it time to grow up. Those 9, 10, 11 year olds i saw today are carbon copies of who we were 14 years ago. Only now its our fault they cant write, read, or talk properly. Its ask, not ax. Its there, not thurr. I know that i don’t always use proper English or that i might use slang in my writings. But when i am around kids, i do use proper English. When did our generation get lazy with raising kids? Growing up, if someones mom came out yelling you knew damn well every one of us was going to get yelled at. Not today though. Parents think their kids can do no wrong. Not my baby, he/she knows better. yada yada yada. Its like we want the schools to babysit the students but when it comes time for the schools to be the “parent” and discipline the students, all hell brakes loose. Schools can’t give out Ds or Fs cause it will make the kid feel stupid…no shit, thats the point. Its letting you know you need to buckle down. Cant play tag at recess cause you’re not suppose to touch someone without their permission. All kids get an award in sports even if they lose..cant ruin their self esteem. All we are doing is setting our kids up for failure when they reach society and realize they are stupid and they are not always going to get praised for coming in second. These are the same kids who are going to end up shooting up people. We need to stop making excuses for this generation. If they can sit in front of xbox 360 for 8 hours straight with no problems yet their A.D.D. kicks in during their 8 hours at school, all they are doing is playing you for a fool. Our country was built on the strength of each generation learning from the prior’s mistakes, and building off of it. Thant’s not the case anymore. These kids today are going to be the ones that we are going to have to rely on to care for us when we become seniors. To be honest, thats scary.
