Beauty is only skin deep
If this story was not so typical of today's world then it would be really sad.
You have to admit,the woman in the picture above is finer than a pair of legs would be to a quaddroplegic.
Her story makes me think of the way people are treated because of their looks.
The better you look, the better you will be treated in today's world.
A famous beauty pageant winner getting caught up with drug dealers and gang bangers?
Who would have thunk it?
Would she have made the headlines if she was ugly and poor?
I think not.
Now I must admit that I consider myself to be a decent looking man. There are some things I want to get fixed, like my teeth, I need braces, I also need to get in better shape, I lost my 2 pack about 10 years ago, but other than that, I have no problem getting attention from the ladies that I encounter on a daily basis.
I get told on the regular that I am a very sexy Black Man.
But I have to ask...
What is real Beauty?
Why is it so hard to see real Beauty?
Looks are the first thing a person notices when they encounter someone, but why do people (me included) automatically assume that because a person is fine that they are above reproach?
Why do we assume that a good-looking person can do no wrong?
Personality is not what gets attention, it is looks.
When you first meet a person you could give a damn about personality, all you see is how attractive you think they are.
Most ugly people do not stand a chance in this world if they have nothing else to fall back on.
I fall into this category of judging people based on the way they look.
It is wrong and I try everyday to change my attitude, I am getting better at it, but It is hard to look at a person for what they are instead of what they look like.
Besides, I cannot see myself waking up next to a woman that might have a nice personality, but whose face looks like ten miles of a Mississippi dirt road, with all the bumps clearly outlined.
Lord forgive me, but I'm just saying....
