So there is this new idiotic fad/challenge amongst stupid ass teenagers in America. The concept behind this challenge is to make a pattern of salt on your back or anywhere on your body and then rub ice on the salt pattern and hold it for as long as you can. Now here is where the stupidity really comes into play and a little 9th grade biology. The chemical reaction produce from salt and ice is the rapid release of extreme heat, hence the reason that in most places around the world they use to salt to deice roadways BECAUSE when salt comes into contact with ice, the chemical reaction is instantaneous. This is also why the roadways of places such as my home state of Michigan are horrible, because the amount of heat released form salt is so great that it can even damage asphalt. So why in the hell teenagers think it would be a good idea to put it on human skin and hold for youtube video hits is beyond me, but hell this is America so who knows why these dumb-ass kids do half of the things they do. The pictures above is yet another reminder of how dumb we can really be in this country, and how desperate we are for some entertainment. one thing is for sure…this boy will NEVER forget this lesson…hopefully.
Ok….now I have SEVERAL issues with not only this flyer, but this concept the idea, the name, and hell even the fact that the party is taking place on Martin Lutheran King Dr. I mean come on people you have got to be kidding me…The battle of the complexions. Reasons like this is why there is so much dis-unity in the black community. I mean we cannot even move past the slave mentality that is air-apparent and still very prevalent where we are divided on the basis of skin tone, and we even go as far to say the tone of our skin still equates to a hierarchy in terms in terms of beauty and self worth among African Americans. To be honest images and concepts such as this just simply disgust me and I am embarrassed by this to say the least. It’s 2012 and we in the black community still have a complex about our complexion and we are still slaves on the plantation of the mind. It’s sad to be honest and we really need to let go of this light skin vs. dark skin state of mind and way of thinking. We have got to do better people.
And this is just like WOOOOOOOW, REALLY DUDE…..”GAME OVER MAN…GAME OVER” lol It’s offensive it’s funny.
