This past week, social networks have been buzzing about Floyd Mayweather’s inability to read fluently. However, Floyd isn’t the only celebrity who is rumored to be illiterate. Queen Bey, is also said to not be able to read. Among this long list of idolized idiots are George W. Bush and Paris Hilton.
What do these people have in common? All of them had financially comfortable childhoods. There was no need to have them cultivated in the realm of academia. Because face it, majority of people only get educated in hopes of starting a career that will allow them to live comfortably. I’m not saying all of the wealthy people in the world lack intellect but most do causing me to believe comfort leads of lack of cultivation.
Floyd Mayweather is an undefeated boxer. Master of his craft. Beyoncé is possibly the best entertainer to ever walk the Earth. Her performances are indescribable. Now imagine if they spent time learning to read as well as we think they should. Do you think they would have mastered their crafts if they didn’t spend every waking moment working on it?
