I want to tell you GOP rebel flag confederate honky crackers a story:

  1. Creativity will always matter. When you can approach a problem or a challenge from your own individual and singular viewpoint, using your innate weirdness and the personality that sets you apart from anyone else in the world who cannot live inside your head, youll reach creativity.

No ideas have to be completely original, but a good idea is always a creative combination of several others that have been mashed together, turned upside down and reinvented.

When you attempt to run in sync with what you see as the mainstream, with the worker in the cubicle next to you who always says and does the right thingrather than the raw thingyoull never be able to embrace that creativity.

The best solutions, ideas, products, they dont come from conventional thinking.

They come from a creative twist that only a totally passionate weirdo could have come up with. Thats what you have to try to foster. If you stamp it down, youll be suppressing any chance you might have had to be remarkable.

  1. Hiding from yourself is going to hurt. If you try and turn yourself into a stranger, someone you dont truly recognise when you look in the mirror and see grey where there used to be vibrant colour, sooner or later thats going to hurt you. It will crush you.

Youll start to lose any kind of value in your life and you wont feel comfortable in your skin.

Thats no way to live. Its no way to be. Its no way to exist. When you start to lose the pieces of you that give you a fire for life, sooner or later that fire goes out.

I dont want to be there when that happens to you. Its sad, its hard and its painful. Hiding from yourself is the surest path to self hatred, self pity and a whole lot of missed potential.

  1. Its not worth the regret. Do you want to look back in 30 years and point to all the times you blended in? Are those your glory days, your finest hours? When you spend your time on this rock bottling up your own personality, you will lead a life of regret.

Regret that drives people away and gives bitterness the empty space it needs to move in and make itself comfortable.

Regret that prevents you from being proud of your life and taints the memories, turning what should be your moment to stop and rest into a nightmare.

Regret that makes anything you did achieve seem empty and pointless, compared to the life that you know you could have lived if you had only opened up and let yourself out.

Regret that wakes you up in the middle of the night by whispering those two dreaded, hated words. What if.

  1. Authenticity always shows. When youre not trying to hide away the real version of yourself, people will respond. When youre demonstrating authenticity, not some contrived personality, thats when you find a way to reach out and connect with other human beings.

Im a huge fan of letting it all out there. Allowing the world to see the real person inhabiting your skin, rather than the image that you want to project. And Im not saying that I dont play a part too.

Everything I do is playing out a different part of my personality. But every part is always based on something genuine, something that comes from me. My Dad used to tell me that he thought I had no true personality.

The reality was, I had so many different personas that I could pick and choose between them for whatever situation I was facing. But in every one of them, I was connected with who I really was. And thats authenticity.

  1. You need to be weird to tell a story. The oldest art that humanity has ever engaged with is storytelling. Weve been doing it ever since we first developed the ability to communicate with eachother.

Why do you think so many ancient texts have resonating, similar themes? They were based on the viral stories we were telling at the dawn of time. That probably sounds like marketing bullshit.

But the fact is, everyone communicates through the art of a shared story.

That first salutation in the office on a Monday morninghow was your weekend?its the default question because it invites a story, and creates common ground.

When you embrace your weirdness and your passion, youll be ready to share the stories that are personal, the ones that are close to you, the ones people really give a shit about and want to hear.

Youll be able to communicate those stories in a hundred different ways.

  1. The greatest creatives were weirdos. The people you truly look up to are fully aware of their passions. This is a fact. They could be entrepreneurs and founders, or comic book artists, or speed metal musiciansevery creative is a passionate weirdo. If they werent, the world would be missing a lot of colour.

Henry Ford, Michael Bloomberg, Douglas Coupland, Salvador Dali, Gertrude Steinthese are passionate people. And their passions drove them to do things that affected my life. In immense ways.

You dont have to be them. You dont have to be a founder or a full time artist. But youd be mad to ignore their accomplishments, and the things that they were able to achieve through their passions. Its a sign that following and maintaining yours is a good investment.

  1. Nobody really gives a shit. Youd be surprised how accepting other people can be, when theyre presented with somebody who is a little different. Sure, there are always going to be a few total assholes, but I've discovered most humans are extraordinarily capable of showing love. And being OK with eachother.

You might think that your passions are going to set you too much apart, put up a barrier between you and other people. Generally, thats not always the case. People will probably find your passion interesting. They will want to learn more.

Nobody really gives a shit if youre in your late 30s and still play Pokemon. They might not totally get it, but it wont stop them from respecting you professionally or wanting to associate with you. Nobody really gives a shit if youre an artist as well as a medical student.

Nobody gives a shit, so why should you?

Interesting "story" but after reading your first sentence... It made me wonder who you stole the "story" from? Normally you give credit to the real author....

Ah, this is funny.

First thing everyone commenting should do is see that my name and that guy's name are spelled different. If you're silly enough to believe a young black guy says words like "honky," you're very silly and should get out and meet more people.

If i WERE to vilify you, I'd say wyte, wight, wypipo, Yakubian, something along those lines because it's easier to search on Twitter than just saying "white" and that's how this generation talks.

The guy you think is me above is a white guy probably in fifties, because that's exactly who he talks like to me.

Crap, I didn't notice the extra 'n' in the imposter's name. I was thinking The Real HCD wrote something I could agree with. The comment about "talks like a 50-something white guy" made me think of Richard Pryor's routine about how white people talk. I don't tthink many of us sound like that, but he was pretty close. "Honky Crackers"? I think my granddaughters like those. Shaped like little pickup trucks, bass boats, etc. Ritzy Grits is the only flavor of them that I can recall. No, wait--wasn't it an Elton John song? Or is it a band name?

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@Fire_and_Steel Well i agree with it as well, but the imposter did not write that. He's definitely not smart enough for that, given his post history.

This was written by a fellow creative, blogger, and entrepreneur a couple of years ago. I know this because i read this exact article when it came out because i am also a creative entrepreneur (i own a graphic design and branding company for social media personalities).

Lastly, we mostly think you all sound exactly like Richard Pryor's rendition. Except for the cool white folk that were into rap or punk when they were teens. They're normal.

What a pontification of Bullshit. As if you are completely original, and don't run with the pack. That's all you do. The only value you have shared is skewed to a political bent. One that isn't about us, but exclusionary. As if you could include anyone other than what you identify with. Regret requires a conscience. I've never seen you express anything even close to showing a conscience. A value system that is inclusive, not exclusive. You assume too much. You assume that people here are not genuine, because it suits your ideals and needs. Not because that is who they are. If you actually did accept them as who they were, you wouldn't have a need to be so bigoted with your remarks. Not everyone has to tell a story to get the message over. And, you certainly don't get any message over with your screech. LOL, your creatives are idiots, dressed up as people that matter. As if Ford or Bloomberg were not the bigots that you want to call everyone else. They are / were. And, you call that creative? I would guess that makes you creative too. Actually, some people do give a shit. They care about specific things. Like keeping people safe. Defending the helpless, securing their rights, helping those in need, etc. That's why a lot of LEO's do their job. But, you wouldn't know that, the way you act and remark. After all, they don't have your intellect. A intellect lacking reason or logic.

I want to tell you something racist, the flag has nothing to do with racism or slavery. It's just you have been fed the lie since the day you were born that whites and cops want to kill you. And the sad part is that you know damn well it's a lie and still try to perpetuate said lie. "honky crackers" - who is the real racist here?

It's funny

Conservatives are called facist bigots but we allow someone like CommDenom to remain here and speak freely. Even if the comments are complete idiocy, which they all are.

But just imagine signing up on a typical Democrat liberal delusion forum while speaking logically, instant BAN!

Someone's offended BAN IT!

Oh dear another accident today on the highway. Let's BAN motor vehicles!

The only "Alt right" that exists today is a further than radical left ideology that cheats and identifies as "Alt right"

People predicted another war on law enforcement and a life of socialism. Here it is.

Venezuela R.I.P California... need I say more? Toronto now? 10+ people shot and killed in a peaceful area... shooter is labeled as "mental health". The liberals ignore the fact that yes, you guessed it, Islamic terrorist ties.

The word accountability should be removed from the dictionary. The word has no meaning today.

If you are going to cut and paste other people's work you should at least attribute it them. See John Westenberg's post from Feb 17, 2016. https://medium.com/the-mission/be-a-fucking-weirdo-bb842a0250d. You lost the entire discussion with your ignorant opening comments.

#idiocyabounds -You Do realize Who Exactly Created the Confederate Flag and the Confederacy Dont you? Oh yes, it was the kkk led Democrats of the South NOT the Northerers Led by Abraham Lincoln and the GOP!!! Please study some History before you open your.....!! The majority of those who Still want to maintain their hatred of all things Non white are Your Democratic colleagues and 74% of the current kkk & White supremists of all venues are Dems!! Very Left Wing ones!! And just in case you didnt notice, there was a Grand total of 12 with about 25 other followers at that last protest! But, oh yeah the Far Left Wing Dems, Libs, Antifa and all those other idiots were a lot more vicious and detrimental to the area than those scumbag supremists!!

What an idiot!

The Democrats were the slave owners in the south and they fought against the North who wanted to end slavery. The Rebel flag is nothing more than a battle flag the South created so they wouldn't kill their own men, it's also an important piece of American history but that doesn't mean that I would fly it at home or on my car.

The Democrats did start the KKK and most Democratic politicians were card carrying members of the KKK until the mid 1970's when they started hiding their affiliation with the group.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was signed into law by LBJ under extreme duress. He only agreed to sign it if the NAACP and other minority groups would guarantee future political support for the DNC. LBJ was known to have said "if I sign this every N-WORD in America better give us their vote for the next 200 years". It looks to me like the DNC found a way to inslave every person of color without them knowing what was really happening.

Everything above can be found and proved true by using Google search.

I hate racism and I am no racist unlike the stupid idiot that is stupid enough to use the honkey word or mention waving the Rebel flag. Again, it was a damn battle flag!

Remember, use your words instead of copying and pasting someone else's idiotic thoughts.

So you calling a whole lot of people "honky crackers" is going to bring us together? I have seen your racist comments on this site many times and I believe that you yourself know that the comments you make are always racist toward white people and police, but you will claim that "Black's can't be racist.....fuck you, you racist turd!

First of all, I'd like to thank whichever one of you donut-munching, barrel-assed, pud-pulling sissies leaked this to the press. That's just what we need now: some sensational story in the papers making these boys out to be superheroes, triumphing over evil. Let me squash the rumors now. These two are not heroes. They're just two ordinary men who were put in an extraordinary situation and they just happened to come out on top. Yes, nothing from our far-reaching computer system has turned up diddly on these two. All we know is what we found out from the neighbors, and the general consensus is, they're angels. But angels don't kill. And we got two bodies in the morgue that look like they've been "serial-crushed by some huge friggin' guy".

Funny how this unidentified dip shit considers Henry Ford to be one of his role models. Old man Ford is the only American to have been awarded a medal by Adolf Hitler, and published "The Dearborn Independent," a newspaper chock full of anti semitism. You can look up this stuff, provided you've learned how to read.
