MAYA PETERSON AND KENDALL JONES: A TALE OF ONE STRONG WOMAN AND ONE WEAK WOMAN

Of the thousands of abhorrent things that happen every minute in the United States of America, for this morning I have chosen this comparison to give an insight on the divide on culture and politics today. Maya Peterson and Kendall Jones are two women who come from backgrounds that are as opposite as could be possible in America today. Maya Peterson was the student body president of The Lawrenceville School. This private school in New Jersey costs a whopping $53,000 per year and claims such noted individuals as Lydia Hearst-Shaw, Bandar bin Sultan, Tinsley Mortimer, Jay Carney, William H. Masters, Fox Butterfield and Huey Lewis [yes that one!] among its alumni. Kendall Jones is a student at Texas Tech University and an avid hunter.

Ms Peterson was, until her graduation last month, the student body president at The Lawrenceville School and according to the media reports I’ve read the first female person of color to hold that position. Prior to graduation she tweeted the above photo as a statement of what she thought about certain male students at the school using hashtags such as #Romney2016 and #confederate to describe certain attitudes among the elites. From the day she was elected there was a backlash against her desire to add diversity to the institution. There were even fabricated photos and tweets of her that were denounced by the administration that had the potential to ruin her academic career.

Ms Jones of Cleburne, Texas has been hunting since she was 13 years old. Her claim to fame are pictures of the numerous exotic animals that she has killed. Jones is a part of the hunting culture that is a part of the gun worship culture in America. It is my opinion that she is not a conservationist but an animal butcher. Thousands of people by way of Facebook petitions share my opinion of Kendall Jones.

Being true to yourself is strong; murdering exotic animals with guns is weak.

So you tell me. Who is the strong woman and who is the weak one? Discuss.

Qu’ul cuda praedex nihil!
