Have you heard about Kayne West and his pride on "being a non-reader"? Yup, the guy doesn't like books. Doesn't read. He's a rapper who is well known and there are tons of kids looking up to this guy and his success. So he puts out a statement that he's proud to be a non-reader? What kind of message is that?
This guy went to school. He dropped out of college, which means that he did complete elementary school and high school and somehow managed to get into college. You can't drop out unless you actually got started. How does someone get past the third grade without reading? So.... we know he did read just by knowing that he got into college. Or, did he?
The guy wrote a book! Can you believe this? He's all proud to be a book basher and he wrote a book? Uh huh. Suuuuuuuure, he did. Yeah. First clue that leads me to think someone else wrote it for him? The title is spelled correctly. It's a rare thing these days to find the word "you're" spelled correctly! It's a personal pet peeve of mine and there are some very intelligent folks out there who can't get it right. Think Kanye knows the difference between your and you're? He might; he might not. Bet his editor does! Reviews do say that the book doesn't have a lot of text, some blank pages, and it is a book of quotes of his profound non-reading wisdom. Wonder if he read his own book?
How sad for the youth who look up to this guy. He might as well walk around whacking little kids with his itty bitty book. And he's really missing a lot of good stuff by not reading. I sure hope the guy doesn't make an impact on the kids who think he's pretty cool. Obviously, he's not thinking about his little fans who could benefit greatly from reading.
Pop Culture suffers a blow. Sad. Sad. Sad.
