Heart of the City

A PR publicist tweets out something offensive and the entire world of Twitter knows about it five seconds later.

She is then “out of pocket” and finally gets “back into the game,” when she sees that the world has exploded and attempts to digitally erase her offense as well as any trace evidence of her presence.
She fails miserably.
We once read a comment from someone that “The entire Internet is designed for women, except for the porn and the stock quotes.”

Jay-Z once rapped in Heart of the CityMales shouldn’t be jealous that’s a female trait.” He also once noted–along with Kanye West–that there’s no church in the wild.

Two days before this incident, Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame, shot off his mouth in a GQ article.
We also know that the female PR publicist once Tweeted out some things about Christians that weren’t so nice.
What do all of these things mean together, in aggregate?
  • We are all human. No one here on this planet is sinless, without error or not guilty.
  • We are all capable of forgiveness and grace: If we choose to act in such a way.
  • We are all going to have to be more responsible about posting, Tweeting, or otherwise creating “transparency,” and remain authentic—and able to defend that authenticity—against a digital world, with much less forgiveness and grace than in the eye-to-eye world.
