Your environment shapes who you are and at a point you’re gonna have to recognize that. In a second you’re gonna have to stop blaming the man and start blaming the environment. The question is Can you escape the environment? The environment is much fatter than a human being can ever get. The environment is mind and emotion and a real obese motherfucker.
Your environment shapes you into a slave. So many go down with the sinking ship. The famous ones are made famous for superficial reasons and because marketing folks need action. Pure talent is a wild card—it stays underground or goes through the roof. Pure talent can pierce through the environment.
The outside world wants so much to crash in on the little place you’ve made for yourself. Boulder, Colorado crushes a man.
What you grew up around, all that shit your parents told you and drilled into you… “That’s just how I was raised…”
Put all that shit in the trash. I’m so done with including you and patience in the same sentence.
Slavery and racism and bigotry. Such an easy, narrow little way. They. Them. They’re going to herd you into a work camp sooner or later and you’ll thank them. And you will be just where you belong. So smile.
