wow that girl is uhhh a dumbass
but i got a good laugh out of this thread
society is allowing themselves to become more and more influence by the media and big corporations. they r being told what to do more and more every year and r losing the ability to think for themselves. also becoming for dependant on technology is making us lazy
I dont need anyone to tell me my opinion matters, i'm quite confident that it does. Yours though, I'm not so sure anyone cares.
i think its more that humans, specifically young people like ourselves are indirectly being de-sensitized to thinking for ourselves, exploration, and philosophy. In an age where machines do everything but eat and take a shit for you, Paris Hilton has her own TV show, and an enormous number of people really think Lil' Wayne is the best rapper alive, kids and young adults are bound to think being dumb is "cool". Why should there be any substance...everything's done for me and that's good enough.
Schools don't escape of the blame, too. Grades are earned by cheating, memorization,and formula. Unless you're a philosophy/english major or something (I'm not) chances are you won't be challenged to think beyond what's in front of you.
Luckily, there are people who disregard the "dumbing down" of culture and try to encourage something more (take Lupe who actually has a song called "dumb it down"). There are others obviously beyond rap.
Sorry for the long post...just my thoughts. Oh, and the woman thing was hilarious and sadly true in not all but too many cases.
