It doesn't change the fact that some are "born with a silver spoon in their mouth" and that some enjoy flaunting it with their superior, arrogant attitude.
If you want to make amends...stop acting so damn arrogant and learn some humility, all right? Humility is so rare these days. If I ever meet a humble man, I might just fall in love with him. *swoons*
The issue with many is arrogance and it is not based on knowledge. For example Donald Trump continually goes on twitter and rants on and on about how he is 'smart' and how he went to a great business school, and how he is this or that. All because Rex Tillerson called him a moron and was overheard by some reporter. Not a single POTUS in history has ever done that. He is the exception. Why? Because these mean, arrogant disrespectful and not quite intelligent men have fragile egos and are really just insecure. Again, Toni Morrison....if the only way you have of feeling tall is having others on their knees? Who are you? A sick little person.
Humility is a great quality in a man. So is a sense of justice. Honesty and generosity of spirit. You get one of those? You keep them.
In the end the arrogant ones with right wing extreme ideas are like Steve Bannon. They wind up divorced forever. No woman in her right mind is going to be feeding their egos forever. If they do? They are out shopping all day and not really interested in most of their bullshit. They just pretend they do.
As for @Politiks is this you? I kind of think it is you? It's a white guy...and he doesn't care that he is not an average white guy....he thinks it is ok to be white!
