Why we Make Dumb People Famous…

In the middle of meetings and other important tasks that filled my day, I caught wind of some Twitter beef between a few popular rappers and media personalities. I can’t say I read enough of the tweets to know what happened but I have a few observations.

We make really dumb people famous. I was trying put my finger on why and it occurred to me that smart people are far too complex to be discussed through the lens of isolated  social media posts. Think about it. It only takes one quote from Donald Trump, Stacey Dash, Raven Symone, etc. to sum up their depth. They aren’t scholars or celebrated thinkers. They’ve not written any books worth reading and probably haven’t read any either.

we choose to make heros and persons of influence out of people who don’t make us think too hard in order to understand them. Even intellectually savvy artists are forced to dumb down their work to be accepted by popular culture.

so… Here’s my challenge to whoever is still reading.nstudy someone complex. Invest some time in an intellectual you respect. Read them. Watch them. Emulate if you want. But, let’s stop promoting ignorant people more than we promote brilliancy.
