JASON JORDAN’S WHAT I’M THINKING TODAY …
It never ceases to amaze me how grown adults can go so hard at teenagers who are just trying to make the right college choice for themselves.
That hate is strong!
For this reason I’m thinking of exposing these grown children with a weekly award called “The Silky Johnson.”
Most of you know that Silky Johnson was a character in one of Dave Chappelle’s skits from Chappelle’s Show. Johnson won “Hater of the Year” in the skit, which was one of the funniest in the show’s history, I think.
I wonder if this would dissuade the hating epidemic.
Beware adults, the Silky Johnson award is still being pondered.
