Yeah? Yeah, what? Whatcha gotta say?

Paris Hilton, as much as I am intrigued by her, I am disturbed by her and the perspective she comes from sometimes. There is a vanity accompanying wealth and privilege from wealth that supersedes decency often masking real concern with displays of idiocy or the veneer of scorn!

Case in point:

In May of 2015 Paris Hilton was in Cannes, France 'performing' at a benefit for the earthquake victims of Nepal. It is a noble and necessary cause, but it was also an opportunity for a decent sense of being to surface. What showed up was a picture of her taking a picture with her cell phone. The fancy phone cover read, "Queen of Fucking Everything"!

What does that mean to the people that matter and who does matter in the games of consciousness and entitlement? Are the poor entitled to be fed and cared for by the wealthy? Are the wealthy obligated to care for the poor disenfranchised victims of natural phenomenon, or must those souls figure it out for themselves? Is it bad to flaunt your position, or illusions of self before the masses who have not, or wish they had with aplomb? Is it bad taste the display of her assessment of self, or do we care because after all the woman believes it is important to care for others?

Does it matter the stuff that offends the sensibility of women and men who are on the sidelines not participating, but judging and measuring others against standards that may or may not be kind, or from kind places of the heart? - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories (9.13.16)
