RICH BITCHES

I would like to address this absurd notion that flaunting your material wealth inspires ‘poor’ people. In fact I would like to come straight out and say people who say that are speaking crap.

 

There is nothing profound, inspiring or uplifting about society’s obsession with material possessions.

Material wealth does NOT make people extra-ordinary……it is what people DO that makes them extraordinary.

 

The flaunting of wealth by the middle class is not building our community. If anything, it is exposing that we are buffoons. We rate ourselves ngezinto zabelungu. These material things are not the values on which our people lived on. They came with the west. So when ‘success’ is the ability to acquire foreign things…..I really worry about mankind and what kind of a people we are breeding.

 

We no longer teach our children principles like honour, integrity and compassion…we now teach them to aim for driving a German car. Wow.

We are saying, dear black child…..the aim of life is to drive a nice car.

Wow……and then we wonder why we have bred a mediocre society.

We don’t teach people to be great human beings…we teach them to aspire to wear nice clothes from Italy? Wow.

 

If I could have a moment with the black child I would tell them

‘Sweety it’s not your ‘things’ that will leave a legacy for you when you die…….it’s the kind of person you were.’

 

I see today’s youth AND elders over excited about this thing called ‘Freedom.’

We are a nation of people that’s always trying to prove a point, trying to show the world that ‘I’m not a poor black.’

It’s so sad because the way we are behaving is showing that we actually are poor…in character. We are a nation that is defined by things outside of us. The truth of the matter is that we are not free. We continue to buy into western standards and expectations. That is not freedom. We are still slaves.

 

Material wealth comes and goes…..but who you are…..your character, is your footprint in this world.

This obsession with ‘things’ is distracting you from harnessing your true potential and being the person you were destined to be.

 

When it comes to the issue of flaunting your wealth in front of poor people…..that is, straight up,  some asshole bullshit. The poor should strip you, sell your clothes and buy a sheep for the community! TSEEEEK!!!!
