It pisses me off that the good people can't do shit, but the rich people refuse to do shit. I see all these musicians, actors, actreses, producers etc.. with so much money and money literally crawling out of their asses and they expect you to love them because they showed up at this charity event. Well, No duhh, you little fucker. The whole country was watching you to take a step, no shit you're gonna donate. And even when they do donate its like such a small amount. yeah, 250k raised from a event attended by Kidman, Cruz, Penn, Bardem, when each of them definitely earns more than three times that amount for a single appearance; FACT: Julia Roberts earned 3 million dollars for appearing in a movie for 6 minutes. FACT: A Rwandan farmer earns $123 a year. yeah thanks, but no thanks!. And watch these beloved celebs when there isn't a natural disaster, or a highly publicized calamity, they won't take their time to spit in someones face . If I had such an immense amount of wealth, i literally would not know what to do with it except give it away. How many houses, SUVs, handbags and shoes does it take a human being to realize that they are not alone in this world?
Normal people have the excuse of having their children's colleges to pay for, making next months' mortgage, what excuse do these movie stars have??? buying your third house in France, and a St. Barts vacation does not qualify of necessity in my book. A Cadillac Escalade ≠ Necessity. The 30 million dollar piece of art you bought? Might as well have told a dying child to hurry it up already. He was taking up too much oxygen.i don't know if you believe in God or heaven, or paying for your sins, but doesn't a voice in your soul tell you that this is wrong?
i hope they burn in hell for this. Don't judge me for this comment, because if you had ever been out of the states and Europe you would've realized that the peoples definition of poor isn't food stamps or being on welfare. It is not knowing if you can put food on the table tomorrow, or making the choice between your child's education or saving that money. I literally saw children the age when you didn't even know how to tie your laces, selling gum on the streets. And you call those people savages. Look at them, they don't wear shoes, ewww why are they eating that, why are they dressed so dirty? Check yourself. The soles of their feet many be dirtier than yours, but compared to your heart, they are wayy cleaner.
I'm not saying that its a bad thing they have money. Its great actually, they earned it by hard work and perseverance. More power to you, my man. But I'm tired of people suddenly fawning over a celebrity who donates less than .05% of their earnings.
The only thing I've ever honestly wanted to do ever since I was young, was volunteer to the Peace Corps. (except I didn't know what it was called back then), people scoffed, called it a momentary spark of passion, they said "when you're older and make no money in it, You'll see" so I started saying I wanted to be a journalist. This world is ruled by money, for better or for worse, Money is the currency of the realm. Apathy is the worst kind of sin you can commit. It is the worst kind of hate in that it is worse than hate.
i could go on forever, but I'm sensing i've taken too much of your time.
P.S: i wrote this when i was extremely pissed. When i say "you" in the 3rd paragraph, I don't mean you guys <3
In the wild world i would seduce you with words
