My first blog was about my experience seeing Kanye West in concert here at the Bluesfest. Now here I am writing my last blog of the course, just a mere three months later, and Kanye just recently announced his bid for leader of the free world. He told the audience at the MTV music awards that he is running for President of the United States in 2020. Kim Kardashian would be the first lady. She is the already the Queen of social media. It could happen. Let’s not forget that Ronald Reagan was a two-bit B movie actor who became President and Arnold the Terminator/Mr. Universe became Governor of California. It’s America. They like movie stars as their leaders.
Here are a couple of excerpts from his rambling and incoherent speech in which he mentioned various questionable things among them,
Y’all might be thinking, “I wonder. Did he smoke something before he came out here?” The answer is, “Yes, I rolled up a little something. I knocked the edge off.”
Trying to appeal to the pro marijuana demographic is my guess…but he did seem a little high also.
I’m confident. I believe in myself. We the millennials, bruh. This is a new mentality. We not going to control our kids with brands.
Millennials? Kanye West was born in June 8th, 1977. He’s almost as old as me 🙂 He is a Generation Xer by definition yet he proclaims he is one of them. Why is telling the kids that? Is he trying to look younger? Maybe distancing himself from the evil Man? Trying to fool them? Good luck with that ploy.
Millennials have the lowest levels of social trust at just 19%. Stats on Millennials I believe that. I know I helped to raise a generation of doubters and questioners. I think that is good personally. I taught my children to ask and seek the truth. Where it will lead us remains to be seen.
I am a Generation X adult. My children are Millennials. My son tells me everyone is lying on the internet. Most of the stuff on there is bullshit. Too much information is not reliable he informs me. I have also noticed some disturbing things lately about my son. Things like him being afraid of saying certain words too loud for fear that it is being recorded/videotaped. Him thinking I am the naive or crazy one for not realizing how much we are being documented without our knowledge or permission. I started to notice video cameras all over the place on my daily jogs. Much more than I realized until I started looking for them. And saw them everywhere.
Kanye West will never get elected by the Millennial generation. I think they can see right through his crap. Or maybe that is why they will elect him President just to watch the spectacle that will ensue. After all, Kanye is an entertainer. And they don’t trust the President anyways. Millennials don’t trust anyone
