THE LOUD MINORITY: WHY SO FEW CARRY SO MUCH WEIGHT

“They are the smallest, yet scream the loudest.”


They scream the loudest, get the most frustrated, and always willing to protest the quickest. They are the loud minority in America, and they are growing. They can get your job taken from you, and force you to apologize for statements you make that they don’t like. But is this reality a bit of a distraction because notice I said loud minority. Now don’t get me wrong, the majority does not always rule. There are plenty of instances in history where the majority got it wrong. But this is not like those time periods when people didn’t have any rights. We’re talking in today’s society where people are reaching for anything they can grab.

Whether it’s a comment that a politician has made, or even a celebrity. We have become a society where we love to see each other get into trouble. But like I said before, are we, or is the loud minority at it again. Because as I walk the streets of New York City, I don’t see it. I don’t see a lot of the anger that you see pushed on social media and television. People go about their daily lives, not paying much attention to what is being said out in the world. And that group is known as the silent majority. The group that does care about a lot of the agendas pushed in the world.

The silent majority just want to go to work and make it home to their families without problems. But should the silent always remain silent? Should the silent start to speak up against a lot of the stuff being pushed throughout our society. For example, every kid gets a trophy in sports is not something that the silent group started. It’s something that a chosen few started and it was so loud, the organizations that run these youth sports buckled. And now every kid gets a trophy, and on top of it all, no keeping score. Now, the majority of parents show up today asking why they don’t keep score. But all they get in response is, “That’s just the way it is now.”

But the loud group have also poked their heads into academics as well. Now in school, kids can’t be given failing grades in some schools. And there even cases where if the kid gets a bad grade, they can retake the test or homework assignment more than once. Then, they can take the higher of the three or four scores. Now how is that anything close to reality!!!! It only sets up young people for failure. Because you have to learn to take your lumps when you’re young so can walk through life. It creates this false sense of entitlement when you’re given everything for nothing. Because that’s not how the real world operates.

And, in the end, that is why the silent majority must speak out. Because that false sense of entitlement is making children believe that their 50% or 60%, is the next person’s 100%. We should stop allowing the language policing. We should fight against the snooping in everyone else’s business. If nothing is done, the loud group will take it to a point of no going back if something is not done now. Then, people as a whole will complain, but by then it will be far too late.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
