Where A Mask, It Saves Lives!
How "Cancel Culture" Is Literally Canceling Culture
Why do people call it "cancel culture"? Better still, where did the nickname come from? And why? Well, if one feels froggy ... then let's jump lol! Let's debate the cause and effects as openly as possible. There's no doubt the bigger the story the faster it tracks the urgency of the moment to call out what one fundamentally believes or perceives to be wrong. It brings into focus the phrase "perception is reality". Since it's a fact, everybody sees things differently then figuratively there's a million different realities of a story. If one concludes the previous statement to be correct, could it be interpreted that "Cancel Culture" at the very least may be positioned contrary to progress?
How about Jimmy Fallen, remember that? In 2000 Fallen was raked over the coals for an impersonation of Chris Rock. Although it was 20 years ago, It reminded some blacks of a painful time in our country when African Americans were shut out of the entertainment process due to racism. For some the pain still exists and shouldn't be looked over. At the same time, I think it's fair to make the point, Chris Rock isn't holding a grudge, right. Furthermore, our forever first family, the Obamas aren't either, Recently, Barack made a guest visit to the Jimmy Fallen show where he and Fallen joked and talked about current political events. Since 2000 Fallen has pushed positive issues like health-care, feeding the hungry and more. If he were cancelled his large platform and positive words wouldn't help anyone.
Let's move on to Kevin Hart, who between 2009 and 2011 made what came off as derogatory language referring to gay people. Hart's references were trending in the twitter-verse for some time. Eventually Hart apologized and withdrew himself from being host of the Oscars. He says he now knows how what he tweeted can hurt the LGBQT community.
Anybody ever heard of a guy named Guy Fisher? He's an example of a black man who evolved and turned his life around from selling drugs as a top member of Nicky Barnes's "The Council" from 1972 - 1983 to earning his Masters degree and Phd in Sociology while incarcerated. He received a medical pardon from the government on October 31s't 2020 and as a result been released from prison. Before Fisher went to prison he became the first ever black owner of the very famous Apollo theatre. He's currently working with Miss Debbie Allen to release a movie based on his life called "The Real Godfather Of Harlem". Fisher is telling others who may want to engage in drug related activity to rethink their decision. Because he lived it, he's in a good position to tell people why they shouldn't live a life of crime.
So what's indisputable? People evolve. Where some people don't progress, there are others that do. If it seems as if "cancel culture" interrupts progress or at least doesn't give progress a chance. Well, it is what it is. Being cognisant of that fact helps.
