The Death of Civility : Obama & Kanye
We tune into Jerry to see the fights ,and if it is not a good one we turn the station to Maury Povich.
What message are sending to our youth and society as a whole? Are we saying that we don't have time to listen to intelligent debate ,or we saying that the other person's opinion is not valid to be treated civilly ?
Recently I watched a award show where a prominent rapper Kanye West stole the microphone and time of the winner.Kanye told the audience and those who later watched it that she was not deserving ,what a way for Taylor Swift to be introduced to the viewing public. Kanye was wrong,and in a unanimous condemnation from his fan base he was placed in check .
Civility is not dead, perhaps we are tired of the boorish displays of bad behavior.
