The Sad Part Is, Society Celebrated The Aggressor

I won't perpetuate the horrendous video here in this post concerning a teen aged female known as "Sharkeisha," who savagely and violently attacked another female teen. The upshot of this post is how sad a statement society has made with the glorification of Sharkeisha's actions. For those like me who may have been unaware, Sharkeisha is seen in a video forcefully hitting another girl in her face, knocking her to the ground and then kicking her in the face. To say the commentary and responses to the Twitter, Instagram and video feeds have been overwhelming is an understatement with the majority of them celebrating Sharkeisha. Literally celebrating Sharkeisha's violent punch to the face of the unsuspecting individual.  Have we truly become barbarians? Does not human life matter? What have we become when the majority of viewers of a heinous act think it is funny? I won't even continue to expound other than to say it is something to critically think about. I invite you to follow The Critical Thinker on Twitter @thinkcritical01, on Tumblr and to hear The Critical Thinker live on Saturday mornings from 6 a.m. - 9 a.m. ET on and WP88.7 FM. I welcome your thoughts in the commentary section of the blog.
