Keys, 27, said she's read several Black Panther autobiographies and wears a gold AK-47 pendant around her neck "to symbolize strength, power and killing 'em dead," according to an interview in the magazine's May issue, on newsstands Tuesday.
Moderately humorous as this is, it brings up a serious question--where is all this nonsense coming from? It seems that we have had more "woo woo" conspiracy theories in recent years than ever before. (Of course, it could also be that in the Age of the Internet, it's simply easier to find out about them.) Is this a symptom of an increasing lack of education and critical thinking skills? Perhaps we can label these people as the "New Superstitionists"--unable to understand the world around them, they instead attribute all evil to the actions of the ever-nebulous "THEM".
Whatever it is, it's another worrisome item to keep track of.
