This is in reference to the Jennifer Hudson tragedy that has unfolded this weekend. I waited to write about it until all of the facts were in.
To recap, Hudson's mother, brother, and now nephew have been killed in a horribly tragic incident. The sister of Hudson, Julia's estranged husband William Balfour, is being held on an existing warrant.
Balfour, Mr. Thugnificent himself, is an ex-con, who did seven years for ATTEMPTED MURDER and CAR JACKING, was paroled in 2006. Julia couldn't wait to scoop up this gem. She introduced this pariah to her family.
Although, I don't blame Julia for this tragedy, William' is clearly guilty, but she must bear some responsibility for the consequences of her poor choices. I say this because I am from the west side of Chicago and I have seen this behavior all of my life. Women choose to love bad guys.
We wonder why little boys want to grow up to be thugs. Well for one we glorify thugs, we give them awards(gangsta rap), and we (women) date them.
I have seen beautiful, smart, intelligent women in ABUSIVE relationships with Mr. Thugnificent. Why? Well, the thugs are usually drug dealers/gang bangers who have money to throw at them. But, angry, violent people are not angry and violent in a vacuum. They are usually angry and violent in all aspects of their lives. These losers have NOTHING to lose.
What was it for William Balfour to kill an entire family? He had no love, no money, no job, no prospects, no respect, no morals. So again I ask, what did he have to lose? He is going back to what he knows best, JAIL.
I believe women have so much latent power that we don't even realize. Guys do a lot of things trying to win, impress us. I sincerely believe that if women stop dating thugs, degenerates, losers that would be an disincentive for that behavior.
This is sad beyond words, but not uncommon. It will continue as long as we make poor choices in life and love. Unfortunately, the family has to bear the fallout.
