I am terribly turned off by Eminem’s ridiculous rant about President Trump on BET. I see the comments on my feed and articles praising how amazing he was, and have found no article critically dissecting his rant.

Am I living in the Twilight Zone?

I ask myself, Is this Eminem rant helping people for the greater good or is this helping to create more distance/division between people?

Do people not see how the media is playing on their emotions? And how one sided this whole thing is?

Are these emotions good ones? Are they inspiring good critical conversation? Or are they provoking what feels and sounds like pestilence?

Everyone has a right to express their feelings.  As I have a right to share my point of views.  It is a perspective. That is all. 

I find that I can’t even do laundry without bumping into someone who wants to start talking about Trump, but it is never an intellligent conversation. It is often a one sided hate rant. For those of us that are empaths, this feels like poison emanating from their energetic field. It is toxic for everyone involved.

To loosely quote Eminem, I am drawing my own line. If you can not see how you are allowing yourself to be mind controlled, I can not help you and nor do I deserve to experience your Trump hating song, especially if you are not ready or equipped to have a conversation. 

 It is poison no body needs.

Who am I to talk? I am a former Line Producer with 11 years at VH1, MTV, and BET.  I produce an independent podcast called Cafecito Break focused on exploring deeply and critically what is happening in our world on a social, cultural, political and relationship level. And there’s more, I am also a daughter of Puerto Rico.

I refuse to allow the current state of hate to enter what is already a very difficult life situation for me, my family, my loved ones, and brothers and sisters who are directly impacted by these recent disasters and are dealing with very challenging life conditions. We don’t need to be served more hate. We need love, support, compassion, communion, and community…
