Will Smith Slaps Chris Rock | Kanye West on Culture | Broken Mirrors | The Mister Brown Show Podcast
Manage episode 325572008 series 2862895
In this episode of The Mister Brown Show we talk about “the slap heard round the world,” black culture, and broken mirrors. Do you think Will Smith made a poor choice when he slapped Chris Rock? As I teach students everyday, we are all “Responsible for me!” I believe this situation also demonstrates that today’s issues are not necessarily about black people vs. white people, rather they are about the special set of rules that certain ‘elites’ have. In this episode we also talk about black culture and how sometimes we point our finger to systemic racism, yet we refuse to talk about how our culture promotes people as Black History Stars when they are promoting drugs and violence and calling women names. I want to talk about how this affects kids, because it affected me! Lastly, we talk about broken mirrors and how we often use them to see ourselves and reality. God gifted each of us with different talents. If we use broken tools to see our lives, we are simply distorting our own reality.
