I left twitter and Instagram because they got jarring. I didn’t leave tumblr, but I am now rarely on it because it is also relatively jarring. I can here the loud gasps and cries of tumblr users everywhere. Believe it or not, I never thought I’d say that either. Facebook is still active because I use it to communicate with the people I don’t want to give my phone number to.
I’m tired of social media.
Social media full of ignorant people feeding each other ignorant rubbish in the name of enlightenment. It’s full of pseudo-enlightenment! And I’m sick of it! Everyone seems to think they are educated and that just because they have done a few google searches on a topic, they have enough information to preach to the world about age old problems such a racism, poverty, politics… And the big one… War. I’m sure if things were as simple some, if not most, of these websites implied we would be living in a modern day utopia. No?
People in this world need to recognise that WE KNOW NOTHING. WE DO NOT MATTER. Not really. And most of all WE KNOW NOTHING.
We are told what we want to be told. As black people we want to be told one of the most important empires to walk this earth was in actual fact black. We want to be told what moral stand oping we should take. We want to be told we are free… But please explain to me how we are free, and I still need permission to go to china. Or permission to drive a car. Or permission to build a house?
On top of this, people are now more self absorbed than ever before!
I don’t know. I’ve just been thinking a lot lately. I need God more than ever right now. Because this world is literally driving me crazy.
