“New outrage spreading throughout America.”
In life, you’re always going to have this demographic of people who rage against everything. But in today’s society, now that people have the ability to build themselves a platform, more outcries are rampant. Everything you say, if not walked carefully through or thought out will land you into trouble. And it usually is the result of a politically correct question that is asked. But why do we care so much what someone else thinks. Behavior is one thing, or encouraging others to behave badly is troublesome as well. But we are attacking people just because we disagree.
Now I wonder, how are people really over what they hear and see. Because I live in New York City, and as people go about their daily lives, they don’t talk about celebrities getting into trouble for what they say. So the outrage is real, but there is a bit of a distraction in the amount of people upset. For the most part, society just want things to go right, and only attach themselves to major problems. Like the 9/11 terrorists attacks made everyone in involved. And if you didn’t know any better you would think that the outrage over comments grip the country the same way. In reality it does not grip the country the same way. To be honest most people don’t know about today’s sensitive outrage; and if they do they don’t care. So is it real or is it fake?
As you can see from the photo timeline above, the United States has dealt with an ugly past. And we have worked tirelessly to correct that past, but have we gone too far? Are we so ashamed of our ugly past that we start to go too far with the making up for bad times. Because instead of admitting what was done wrong and find ways to move on from there, we are going overboard to make up and it just does not feel genuine. Almost to the point when I hear the word diversity it becomes irritating to stomach. It’s like we’re saying the right things, but do we really mean what we say. Eventually, people are going to start to push back, and one example is the election of current president Donald Trump. We have become so sensitive of a country that his unapologetic persona has become somewhat of a breathe of fresh air for a chosen group of people. Our dishonesty has become so pervasive that his overt the top honesty feels good because it’s perceived to come from a real place.
