by the media if they don't live up to their own standards.
Sarah Palin's daughter had a child out-of-wedlock and
she's a Christian! What a scandal! Or if some well-known
pastor (or sometimes a little-known pastor) resigns
because of some sex scandal, perhaps because of infidelity,
it makes national news. He's a hypocrite for not living
up to the values he professes!
Why don't rappers like Jay-Z get called hypocrites? He's
not living up to the values he professes in his music. His
music promotes promiscuity. Why isn't anyone calling him
a hypocrite? He's made millions selling a sick lifestyle of
promiscuity. The song that propelled him to fame was called
"Big Pimpin'". Here are some of the lyrics to the song:
You know I thug 'em, fuck 'em, love 'em, leave 'emCause I don't fuckin' need 'em
Take 'em out the hood
Keep 'em looking good
But I don't fuckin' feed em
First time they fuss I'm breezin'
Talking 'bout what's the reasons
I'm a pimp in every sense of the word, bitch
So you can be livin' it up
Shit I part's wit nothin
Y'all be frontin'
Me give my heart to a woman
Not for nothin' never happen'
I'll be forever mackin'
Heart cold as assassins, I got no passion
I got no patience and I hate waitin'
Hoe get your ass in
Yet his wife, Beyonce Knowles, announced last night on MTV's
The media never calls out people who have no moral standards.
I guess it's better to claim you have no moral standards than
to say you do have standards and occasionally not live up to them.
Well so much for big pimpin'.
