Has anyone said it yet?

29 09 2009

I thought Kanye’s interruption of Taylor Swifts victory speech was old news, but I guess not after I got an email from Betterworld.com this morning with a Fiction book interrupting a Non-fiction book. The punchline was
“Hey Non-Fiction I’m real happy for you and I’m going to let you finish but the bargain bin category has some of the best value of all time. OF ALL TIME !” One blogger commented on Kanye’s point of view:

“Has anyone actually watched the Beyonce video? I just did, expecting something amazing – and its just three women in their knickers pelvic thrusting non-stop for 3-plus minutes. So not only is Kanye West a douchebag he’s also a pervert with an odd concept of creativity.I’m amazed it was even nominated, let alone the object of such contention.”

I had a small chuckle to myself, but couldn’t help thinking of if it had been the other way around. What if somebody with white skin had interrupted Kanye’s award? I bet there would be a huge outcry denouncing the racist behaviour of the that artist. I’m speculating here of course, but its something that often rings true. Perhaps its time to drop the double standard and call a spade a spade. Anyone from any race can be racist against another race. Its not a sin reserved exclusively for white people.

But even more shocking is the disgusting replies from some other celebrities. Katie Perry said “F*** you Kanye….” and Kelly Clarkson wrote a nasty letter stating that she liked her cheating ex-boyfriend more than she liked Kanye.

The line between good and evil is not an us and them thing, it runs through each of us. We are all sinners in need of saviour, Kanye included. We have all fallen short of the Glory of God. All of us like sheep have gone astray. The old addage to fight fire with fire only results in….more fire. We cannot claim to follow Jesus and use the weapons of the world. We must be Christians of the means and the end.
