A Cold Cup Of Coffee: Bitchassness

This is a special edition of A Moment With Morris. This is part of an ongoing series I affectionately titled "A Cold Cup of Coffee". Bringing you real life without the sweeteners, a cold and sometimes bitter, but always necessary sip of reality. This time we're looking at, Bitchassness.

Now you may be familiar with the term. It was made popular on MTV’s “Making The Band” by Sean Combs; aka Diddy, P. Diddy, Puff Daddy, Puffy…whatever. He used it in reference to a practiced behavior that has become prevalent within our youth. Bitchassness…and it must be stopped.

For those of you that need it, here is a quick tutorial on Bitchassness.

Example 1# I was leaving the grocery store and walking towards my car. A man was leaving the store as well, walking in the same direction. He had a 12 pack of beer in one hand and nothing else, now there’s nothing wrong with that. Except, 3 steps behind him, was his VERY pregnant girlfriend, with 6 full bags of groceries in her arms…Bitchassness.

Example 2# While attending a sporting event I noticed a rather obnoxious fan. He was ribbing and taunting a fan of the opposing team. The taunting grew more and more heated, then personal. So much in fact, that it escalated to a near physical altercation. The first man instigated this situation to the point where the second man was ready to swing on him. Then the first man called for the ushers for protection…Bitchassness.

Example 3# Any man that does not provide for or be there for his children, and justifies it by saying it’s because, “he doesn’t want to deal with their mother"...Bitchassness.

Example 4# Being a platinum selling R&B recording artist, and getting arrested for beating up your mother...Bitchassness.

Now that we’re all up to speed, this has to stop. More and more each day I’m exposed to the cold hard reality that this epidemic is spreading. This blatant lack of personal responsibility and cowardice when faced with adversity is a growing trend. It seems as if the days of ambition, determination, and courage are gone. Leaving us and the future, to a generation of entitled-feeling, whining, complainers. We have to accept that a bunch of short cut taking, excuse having, irresponsible, morons will be the power and influence of tomorrow.

We as a people have to stand up and shut Bitchassness down! Just this morning I heard this guy say that he was willing to quit his job and live off of the state, just to avoid paying child support. But what really blew my mind was, he had supporters! Really? Has this planet truly fallen into the hands of these low expectation having individuals? I know I’m on a little tangent, but bare with me…

Bitchassness is a disease…a cancer, and the only way to remove a cancer is to eradicate it. We must remove these individuals before they spread any further. Bitchassness must be quarantined and destroyed.

Ladies, stop having babies with these people. Cut their water off! Bitchassness can only breed Bitchassness. They lack the proper tools to raise anything other than a child in their own image.

Fathers, if you realize your raising Bitchassness, step it up! It is up to you to nip it in the bud.

I feel like, if Bitchassness makes it into the world, the parents should suffer. That's right, you created this problem and should be held accountable for your actions! This is not a joke. Bitchassness is real and living among us.

We need to come together, make better decisions in our mates and situations. I understand this may seem funny, but we need to be real with ourselves. Our economy is crashing, the only thriving business is prison building. If you are a parent, really look at the time you spend with your child. If playstation is clocking in more quality time than you, step in. If you're a grown man or woman, and feel like your life situation is the result of anyone other than yourself, but it's up to someone else to fix too may be suffering from Bitchassness.

We have got to get this under control. We have telethons for diseases we're nowhere close to curing, but donate to every year. Why not give that kind of dedication to a fixable problem? We worry about forest fires, global warming, extinct animals...we're even still on a mission to cure athlete's foot, so let's team up on this one.

Forget Puffy...let's follow Smokey. Only you can prevent...Bitchassness.
