Interesting character, that's for sure. |
You can imagine that I didn't agree with him most of the time. Still, after listen to a few live streams there was more to him than what he was spewing out.
For the 'no good so and so' he made himself out to be, there was still good in him.
I was intrigued by him. He had all kinds of money and basically made these AM stations his toy to spew out whatever he felt like. A lot of people do a lot of things with their wealth, he used it unlike anyone else...he did it to get out some kind of message...
But with all of that, he was a hurting soul and it just came out. The anger didn't fool me too much...what I heard was true pain... It could have come from the loss of his son...maybe past relationships, and perceived pain caused by whatever 'establishment' down in St. Clair County that crossed him. He loved his hometown of East St. Louis and never lost his engagement with it.
I don't like the words he used and reject his racial slurs...but he still never forgot his home town and didn't turn his back on it.
For the no good so and so he tried to be and often succeeded in being.......it's not the whole story.
For the one who sees all, hopefully those things also weigh heavy in the balance.
He fought the good fight and the bad fight all at once, in a world where the line is not always so well defined...
I don't know if his struggles are over or not, but I hope the best for his sake....
People get tough with their language in comment sections and many will be saying good riddance, because it seems like the politically correct and 'anti-racist' thing to do.
I am anti-racist, but I can't follow suit. Man, there would be too many wonderful people I knew in Granite City that I would be obligated to hate.
In everyone, there is good. But in everyone, there is lack of understanding.....lack of clarity....and so much that keeps our vision from being clear.
In the end, we are stripped of what we accrued on Earth.
We all are not all that different.
