Most times, they stand in line without the realization that granny is trying to get to heaven, hence lying to them so as to not motivate them to commit suicide. I mean why else do you think granny sends you birthday cards with money? It damn sure isn't to help finance a weed habit, but instead for singing lessons and just in case you have to pay for an abortion one day; save that shit people. But then their are people like Larry Platt who show up and use American Idol as a platform for social activism:
Bless your heart Larry; Black America needs more guys like you. And here I was with the idea that nothing good ever comes out of Atlanta as far as Hip Hop. My wife has been singing this song all week and I heard even Brett Favre sung it in the locker-room after destroying the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL playoffs. But just watching this for the first time thanks to YouTube brought a tear to my eye to see a brave soldier take a stand, and not for the fame. Sure you may see this as exploitation of a Black man, but I see this as "Whoomp There It Is," all over again, but with a purpose. That would be, to be used in locker-room celebrations. Just an observation, but doesn't he look like he could be the love child of Michael Irvin and Rudy Ray Moore?
C'mon Shannon, that's the stuff you only wear as a Halloween costume complete with a pimp cup in tow. Not on national television, man! Shannon gave a whole new meaning to the saying "Casket Sharp", 'cuz he killed us and the Baltimore Ravens by wearing that mess. Maybe Larry Platt can do a follow-up single where he sings about Sharpe looking like a fool wearing a Crown Royal velvet bag suit on television.
