Stephen Foster thoughts.

    Concerning the whole Stephen Foster Statuegate flap. So what's next? Are we going to rename the Stephen Foster memorial across the street into something less offensive?
     I'm surprised someone hasn't got their undies in a knot about that yet. I get that a bunch of people find the statue racist. But I don't pay attention to it, nor do I care what the city does with the thing.
      I just think that a statue of Stephen Foster should be next to the building that bears his name. If I got bent out of shape about everything that annoyed or offended me, I'd have a standing reservation at Western Psych. I've got more important things to worry about than every little thing that offends me. Thankfully, little in this world does offend me, or I would have been shipped off to the funny farm years ago.
      Not saying that people shouldn't get offended by things they find objectionable, but by every little thing that frosts their cupcakes? In that case, some folks would have their panties in a knot 24/7. What a way to live. And some folks will probably say that I'm being a race traitor or I ain't 'woke' or whatever.
     Guess what? I wasn't put here to meet with your approval, or follow your standard of right or wrong. I'm a grown ass man, I don't have to answer to you.  I can only answer to what I feel is right, not anyone else's. If you have a problem with my way of thinking, it's YOUR problem, not mine. #JustSayin
