To Kanye West and the all the media reporting “it’s just a headache”
Please stop saying “just” when referring to Kanye West’s hospitalization for allegedly having a migraine. Since when does Kanye “just” do anything? He doesn’t “just” make music, “just” have an opinion or “just” get married. So why is his migraine “just” that? You don’t go the hospital for “just” a headache. I assume the doctors “just” gave him an Excedrin Migraine and sent him on his way since that’s all we migraine sufferers need, right?! When Kanye stops his show to preach about discrimination do I say it’s “just” racism? Of course not, NO, never! No one should be made to feel inferior, judged on anything but their merit or be made to feel lesser. I did not choose the color of my skin or to have migraines. So why is my disease “just” a headache? 36 million people suffer from migraine or is that “just” not enough to recognize that it is a serious illness that needs attention? While people fight health insurance, unemployment, lack of research, depression and a list of health concerns beyond “just” a headache, the word diminishes us and what we strive for. I know that Kanye claims to dislike ignorance so please don’t allow yourself or the press to spread it.
