You’re Killin’ Me: L.A. Taxpayers
Los Angeles, I know you guys must be pissed about your grocery bag ban, the Lakers losing, and the Clippers getting stomped, but don’t shit on Lil’ Justin Combs. Look, the Kings are in the NHL championship game, and you can always buy fashionable purses for your groceries. Don’t go all April 29, 1992 just because Justin received a $54,000 merit-based scholarship to attend UCLA. Justin is his own person, and he isn’t worth $500 million. Sure he can sell his Maybach to pay for school, but that’s not your problem. He earned that money. Why should he give it back? You’re killin’ me.
Justin earned that money with his grades and his performance on the field. UCLA rewarded him with a $54,000 scholarship. Just because his dad is a millionaire doesn’t mean that he doesn’t deserve a reward for his hard work. For Justin and Diddy, this isn’t about the money. It’s about the reward. The scholarship is like a trophy. People should be happy that the son of a millionaire is actually doing something with his life unlike so many other spoiled millionaire kids. Justin could just live off his dad for the rest of his life. He could always get a menial job at Bad Boy Records. Diddy has done a great job motivating his kid to work hard, and people want to take that away. Winners don’t return their trophies after winning.
Then again, UCLA is struggling money-wise. Tuition keeps climbing and less students are able to afford the school. That doesn’t necessarily mean Justin should give back his scholarship. Like I said, he earned it and it’s survival of the fittest out here. If someone wasn’t good enough to beat Justin and take those $54,000, then that’s his/her fault. I really hate to play the race card, but would this be happening if Justin were the son of a rich white politician? I seriously doubt the media’s involvement in a story like that. Nothing against white people either. This is on the media for blowing things up and making something out of nothing. Even if UCLA is struggling with their finances, that’s not Justin’s problem. He earned that scholarship through years of hard work. High School graduates should learn that the most fit will always survive.
No matter how rich someone is, free stuff is always appreciated. This scholarship wasn’t really free. But hey, Diddy isn’t paying for his son’s education. It’s free. Who doesn’t like free stuff? I know things are tough out there, but that’s not Justin’s fault. He just worked hard and got good grades, and he got a scholarship. It’s not UCLA’s fault either because they’re just giving out a scholarship to a student that earned it. Eventhough it would be nice if the Combs family returned the money and let someone else use it, let’s face it, Diddy spends $54,000 in one night, they don’t have to return anything. The scholarship is their trophy, and Diddy is probably teaching his son to work for his things. Giving back the scholarship would ruin his lesson. Don’t worry about Justin’s money. Worry about your own scholarship. Better yet, why don’t you L.A. taxpayers shift your anger towards all of the undeserving punks misusing their FAFSA money? You’re killin’ me.
Oh yeah, YKM is back for season 2. If you don’t know, now you know. You’re welcome.
