Twitter Rant: Tyler Perry, M Knight, and Hatin' Folks

This twitter rant was inspired by my borderline hatred of the job that M Night did on my beloved cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender, the Boondocks episode about Tyler Perry and my reading of Esther. Enjoy

So I'm reading Esther and I came across this interesting passage

Have you ever seen someone succeed at something that you do when they aren't as talented as you?

Have you ever had an idea that you slept on only to see someone else do it, but not nearly as dope as you would have?

What if you were God's plan A for that task... but you bullshitted to the point that God had to holler at plan B..?

This makes me think of Tyler Perry... so many folks hate on him but he didn't start off with a silver spoon.

I wonder how many other people had the same idea that he had but didn't have the heart to follow through?

Now they're looking at him and hating real strong... they only have themselves to blame.

For every Tyler Perry and M. Night I bet there was a super talented person who wasn't on their game...

No longer will I hate on the prominent folks that I think are wack... I'm gonna hate on the folks who slipped and gave up their not stepping up and following their own dreams.

Rant done. 


  1. Remind people that it is never too late to move past fear (of failure or even success) into what God's plans are for them. God is not surprised by anything least of all human frailty.

  2. Exactly. It's never too late but at the same time gotta step up and play ball. Someone else will step in and play your position.
