10,000 Roses = 220,000 Meals

I dared to voice an opinion on Twitter today regarding Jay-Z, and quickly learned he has some sort of posse just waiting in the wings to jump to his defense.

What did I say that drew the ire of so many that I had to block people and delete the tweet?

I merely stated that instead of spending money on 10,000 roses for Beyonce, that he should have given the money to charity.

The hell you say!!  How dare you!

Don’t you know he donated $1.5 million to charity?

Okay, that’s great.  High five.

Of course, when you and your wife are worth a combined $1 billion, what’s $1.5 million? It’s a drop in the bucket, and charitable donations are tax write-offs.

However, what I said had nothing to do with Jay-Z’s record of charitable giving, because I’ve never researched it fully and there doesn’t seem to be much online information regarding total numbers, and it didn’t attack his character, but it seems that’s the way it was taken.

You see, when I saw the news article, my mind started clicking, thinking about the cost of that many roses.

I quickly did some calculations, because this is how my mind works:

10,000 roses x approx $2 per stem = $20,000

$1 = 11 meals at Feeding America x 20,000 = 220,000 meals

That’s full bellies for 220,000 kids instead of 10,000 roses which have probably already started to droop and die.

So to all the haters who I had to block because they thought they needed to be derogatory and call me names, and tell me to “shut the fuck up” as opposed to starting a discourse, I’m sure Jay-Z will stop by your house any day now to thank you personally, and you can bask in the glory of defending him from little ‘ol me, better known now as the “lonely bitch”.

I will continue to stand by my belief that $20,000 could’ve been used in a much more productive way.
