Keke Palmer Talks About Trump’s Election And Why Kylie Jenner Made So Many Changes
We gotta applaud Keke Palmer for raising some great points and making social media a place where we can discuss real issues. The actress/performer posted this side by side of Kylie Jenner and related it to the election of Donald Trump noting that “being fraudulent is our country’s most popular trend.”
Do you agree with her?
Here’s her full writeup again:
After Trump’s win, I really was convinced that we have become so obsessed with making things appear to be real than needing them to actually BE real. AKA: Reality 📺, that’s the gag. Reality television is based off of the desire WE HAVE to see non scripted shows that MIMIC reality, “false things appearing real” that’s the ART of it, how real they can make us THINK it is. And many social media platforms support that same thing. We have settled for knock off truth in our actual reality because it’s socially acceptable to lie for likes. Looking at this photo above I couldn’t help but stop dead in my tracks because even though I do feel like this family sets an example that it’s good to change for societies affection, how can you blame them? We don’t think that this young woman deserves the attention she receives because of the message it sends but we don’t even think about the fact that for years the whole world damn near agreed that she was ugly. A CHILD, that girl was a child and she was bullied and named ugly and not as a character but as HERSELF … And unlike some that experience such ridicule she had the $$$ to change, she “fixed” what the world said was broken and it worked! Now you are mad that it was that easy? When the generation has already been force fed to love things that are false and appear as real 👁. We are confused! So many of us on who we should be and how we should act, who we should like and how we should pursue them. It’s all been brought to another level because being fraudulent is our countries most popular trend. If only we could accept one another instead of bullying each other into change. We wouldn’t be so confused or misunderstanding all of these mixed messages that ultimately tell us to trade attention for respect and love for possession. We could instead let our differences TEACH us something new instead of walking around looking, acting and being the same. WE DIFFERENT FOR A REASON.
Do you agree that society is more invested in things looking a certain way than being real? Do you think Donald Trump’s election is the direct result of the the popularity of reality tv and a “like” based society? How about Kylie? Should we be more understanding of her decision to alter her appearance after being so criticized as a child?
