Thursday, July 05, 2007Everybody Hates Marcus, and I read such comments like:
To tell you the truth Marcus, your blog is a joke. I find it weird that I find black news covered better and in more of a timely manner on other blogs than a blog that is focused on African Americans. TMZ, Perez Hilton, etc should not be posting African American content faster than you (or if you post it at all!). I mean damn...you are lucky to get 20 posts per entry. I get more posts on my own blog that just started a few weeks ago! Step your game up, the African American market is huge and you are clearly not using it effectively.
Or if the readers are feeling extra feisty, I will get this:
marcus ummmm... keep suckin dick since u came out the closet n all. talk shows aint all that but the one thing nobody can stand are haters keep ya personal issues bout people 2 ya self or stop being a bitch n say wat u gotta say 2 her directly instead of to everyone else.
Who needs coffee when you have some stranger telling you to keep sucking dick?
Welcome to my world.
When I signed up to do the blog, I had no idea the readers would be this cutthroat.
Yes, I can tend to be a ... how would you say it ... asshole at times, but the need for thick skin is an understatement to say the least. A question I get asked a lot by my friends is how do I deal with the comments? I would be lying if I said it didn't get to me just a bit. And it takes a lot for me to actually delete a comment - they really have to say something just over the top and vulgar for me to erase it because I'm all for free speech unlike some folks (Smile).
If I'm going to talk trash about Tyra Banks and how bad her talk show is, the least I can do is read the comments of the Tyra supporters ... right?
It's only fair.
Deep down inside, I think a part of me likes the hate. When you grow up idolizing this man and one of your favorite books is 'I Love Being The Enemy,' you can't help but to laugh at the ability to work folks into a frenzy using just your words.
