Little Richard Quotes – One of the greatest Rockers in the world.

Little Richard was my favourite Rock ‘n’ Roll singer. The power of his performances blew me away when I stumbled across him as a twelve year old. He had a style that was unique and seminal. He made Elvis look tame.
That pompadour was something else!
However, I was a little unsure what I might find when I began to delve for a few quotes. I thought it might just be a lot of religious tosh. But I was surprised. This is a man who has lived, loved and travelled the world. He has tasted the fruits of success but also the bitter taste of discrimination, failure and fear. Little Richard’s lifestyle of orgies and religion seems to sum up a lot of the dilemma in American society of reconciling all the many aspects of what it is to be human. Suppression creates extremes.

But men are so full of greed today, they’ll sell anything for a little piece of money.
That is the trouble. They are selling the planet for a song. There is no morality or scruples. We are being dragged along by businessmen who see everything in terms of cash. Every tree, animal and person is only worth the money that can be squeezed out of them. Logging, mining, exploitation…… nothing matters.
Gay people are the sweetest, kindest, most artistic, warmest and most thoughtful people in the world. And since the beginning of time all they’ve ever been is kicked.
Discrimination against gays is disgusting. Live and let live is my motto. Someone’s sexual orientation is nobody else’s business.
I don’t think a woman has to act like a man to show that she has strength.
Sadly, too many do. What we really need is an equality. If all our governments, boards and positions of power were 50% female we would have a better world. Women bring civilised sensibilities, empathy and compassion to bear. It is a great shame that many people seem to gravitate towards strength and black and white decisions – like we get with Trump – instead of a more nuanced, caring approach. Yet time after time it is the strong leaders that cause all the problems.
It was a way out of poverty. It was a way to success. It was a way to education. And it was a way to a brighter day for me.
When you come from a position in society where you have been poorly educated and discriminated against there aren’t too many ways out. Sport and entertainment have provided a route for many. Let’s hope we can build a world where they aren’t the only outlets. People need to be recognised for their ability not their colour or gender.

  1. You’ve obviously never met a predatory homosexual who ensure their sexual orientation is everybody’s business. Not a particularly pleasant scenario and one that deserves every once of discrimination against it.
    I would also say that you are mistaken with your take on women. The results are exactly the same as with men and I would go so far as to say many women have a cruel streak and suffer from jealousy more easily than men in general, which in turn exacerbates the cruel streak.

    1. I think that that goes for predatory heterosexuals as well though doesn’t it? Both equally as obnoxious. But that isn’t what I was referring to.
      In my experience there is a spectrum of behaviour and attitudes in men and women. Their nasty sides are different and come out in various ways. But overall I think that women are more caring and compassionate than men, less violent and less cruel – in general. There are many notable exceptions. I’ve encountered a few.

      1. No, definitely not. A predatory homosexual is a completely different animal entirely. Fearsome scary people.
        These homosexuals are completely self obsessed. Their sexuality is the be all and end all – they can’t ever switch it off or calm it down a bit. Most can, do, they can’t, won’t.

        You can’t have worked for some of the women types that I have. They made Pol Pot look like an apprentice.

      2. I think only you’d know if you had! I did when I was 23, my new boss. He was a nightmare. He was having a ‘relationship’ with an 18 year old, yet was constantly harassing me to go and live with him! The guy was insane.
        One night it was too busy for me to stay so I crashed on the floor of a stationery office. Next morning first thing, he’s in rooting about for brochures as I’m on the floor. Seriously, the GM looking for admin stuff at 7.30am? He was a full on creep.
        A couple of months into the job he fired me for “misappropriation of company property” after I had stayed the night in the hotel (how unusual, eh?) due a full force rain storm and I couldn’t travel home.
        I went to the head office about and was immediately reinstated elsewhere, satisfactory to me.
        I bumped into him 4 years later in London in my place and told to f-off out the building.
        I had to put up with that whole deal continuously from these older creeps throughout my 20s working in UK. It never happened anywhere else.

  2. I don’t think a woman has to act like a man to show that she has strength… I wonder how he would have reacted to Hillary? I do hope if she wins she wears a dress tonight! (I know, catty comment! LOL)
