You’re gonna love what this guy has to say about not getting sucked into the stupid drama playing out on social media.

As someone from that same generation, what is completely uncontroversial to me, seems to completely mystify younger generations.

He is answering the question, why don’t Gen X-ers get caught up in internet rage-fests in quite the same way as other generations seem to.

The actual question posed by a young lass was pretty straightforward, ‘Gen X. How did you do it? How did you stay out of the generational hate wars?’

Here’s the answer he gives her, and he’s exactly right.

(Transcribed below for anyone whose device doesn’t display it properly.)

We didn’t stay out of it, it was just never an issue with us. Anybody born between like ’75 and ’89, you automatically started going to school with multi cultures. So it was never an issue for us. White, black and brown, we was holding it down since Day One. We never looked at people like there’s color or stuff like that, if we didn’t like somebody, it’s probably just because they’re an a$$#ole.

Also, social media destroyed y’all’s lives. All you younger folks it just destroyed y’alls lives. They just promote hate and racism every single day and it’s startin’ to divide everybody. See, we didn’t have technology like that. When I was in middle school and high school we had pagers and that $#^!. You weren’t texting racist $#^! on that. Yeah, we had the news and stuff, but we didn’t watch the news. We was kids, we was outside.

We was also raised not to be pussies and offended by everything. If somebody didn’t like you, your mom’d be like ‘quit being a b*tch and find somebody else to kick it with’. And we did. It was the greatest era ever, like we never new so much about racism until now.

Amen, brother! Preach it!

If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
