King Richard' star Will Smith discusses memoir and painful childhood : NPR

So if you stay ready, you ain’t gotta get ready, and that is how I run my life.”   —   Will Smith

(A good philosophy . . . if not a little forced ghetto.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m as big a Will Smith fan as the next guy.  Good looking guy, with a lot of various talents!  I’ve just grown tired of all the forced Y’alls and various and assorted urbanics.  Will grew up in a diverse middle-class neighborhood, in a fairly stable family.  And, he was always a good student, who reportedly turned down a scholarship to MIT.  I get it, it’s hip to sound a little ignorant.  It’s been that way for a while.  I’m certainly not above dropping a few kindas, gonnas, and gottas, as you all – see, NOT y’all – know.  And of course, he can turn it on and off, as he pleases.  Another guy who plays up the urbanics is Nick Cannon.  He’s been hosting a bunch of talent type shows for a number of years, where he generally kept things straight/low key.  But on his new daytime talk show he’s all urban . . . ALL the time.  But at least he has the excuse of his projects housing upbringing.  I’m a big supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement, but I hate it when someone asks me if I’m “woke”.  I just don’t appreciate the normalizing of bad English.  Languages are fairly fluid, but I certainly wouldn’t call it the evolution of the English language.  Just the opposite actually.  Can’t we all just show a little more respect for our native tongue?  This ends today’s Uncle Rave rant.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Happy birthday to Dexter Holland of The Offspring!  (One of my favorite ’90s songs!)
