MTV! juxtaposition of shows:True Life/MtvCribs!
So Thursday Night after the Game I switched to MTV and saw this new show called TrueLife: a reality show about some of the most poorest families and kids in rural areas in America and some inner cities...I mean these people have no HS Diploma or College experience virtually no money, lots of babies and some have criminal records and no job.
The saddest story was of one dude's parents that lived in someone's Trailer Park tool shed area that had no running water and he had 3 younger simblings and his entire family could barely read and write. And he was a good kid too but couldn't get into the army for 2 yrs because he was on probabtion.
They were a few more ghetto white and black kids who were struggling to get and keep simple ass jobs but had no common sense or respect worth a damn...anyway the show was very sad and hopeless...and most of them were much worse off than before the show started
so right after that show Mtv Cribs comes on and we see all these Celebrities: Rappers & Athletes (not real athletes but Bikers and Skaters :confused who get paid millions for that shit :confused ) most of them never went to college or graduated HS...and they have just as much sense as the poverty folks when it comes to morals and values. But, nontheless, they are super rich, super lucky and talented somewhat...
anyway it hit me that there is a thin line between poor people and rich people who share almost every mannerism and intellegence possible except wealth. And everyone else is regular ass middle class people who either work our ass of for the super rich so we could pay the goverment taxes to take care of the super poor. So we are all tools in someone sick social game!!!
I just though it was interesting that MTV would line up those two shows like that!
What do ya'll think?
i think you have a very good point.. i havent seen TrueLife yet, but i have watched Cribs a few times.. damn rich people! this kid rapper had a 360, a 645, then a MB something, and then an H2, all with nice wheels and tricked out.. and a kickass house. and i think he's like 16.. i mean props to him for getting where he is, but i still agree with what you said..
a few of those rich people actually were poor, so i can respect some of that
Outstanding points Delmarco. These are problems that will have to be addressed! In fact, while we are on the general topic, I think everyone should have a look at Worldometer I think it's very eye opening
