This show honestly brought a tear to my eye because this is what drum corps is for a lot of people. Home. In the off season when I’m sad or depressed I think about my time over tour and suddenly everything’s better because corps is where I belong. So hearing Blue Stars do Home by Phillip Phillips and then sing it gave me so many chills because it epitomizes my feelings about drum corps.
YESS THIS IS WHAT OUR SHOW IS FOR. It wasn’t just for our corps. It wasn’t a show just for the blue stars. This show was for every drum corps member that considers there corps “home”.
Home is a concept that not many people have, and for a select few, each year, they are able to call their corps home. A place where they feel safe and are able to participate in an activity they love. I’m so honored to have been a part of this show and I’m so honored that this concept has touched someone. Even if it was only one or two people, this show has changed my life. Thank you for that comment. You just made my show worth it all over again.
the difference between sam pepper and shane dawson
posted this ^^^ video giving a sincere apology
hes deleted his videos of him doing blackface
hes admitted he was being ignorant and that he should not have done his blackface videos
hes admitted hes in the wrong
hes done his research on the history of blackface (he did not previously know the history of blackface) and has agreed its fucked up
hes explained the reasoning why he did blackface, and why it was not meant to be malicious and he just didn’t know anything about the subject matter, but agrees it is wrong and he shouldn’t have done it
hes read posts/tweets of people calling him out and is using them to inform himself of what he is doing wrong so he can learn from his mistakes
HE HAS ADMITTED HES MADE MISTAKES AND IS MAKING CHANGES TO LEARN FROM HIS MISTAKES
hes apologized to specific twitter users that he knows have been offended by his videos
hes stated all the people calling him ‘racist’ he deserves because of his blackface videos, even though he defends the fact he’s not racist and he genuinely sorry
sam pepper has:
threatened people that called him out on his bullshit
been a complete asshole
defended his actions
has not apologized
aka: sam pepper is an ass but shane dawson is doing his best and is trying to become a better person and move away from the bad shit he’s done in the past, including blackface
dont support sam pepper but don’t drag shane down too bc for real hes honestly trying his hardest to learn from his mistakes and become a better person and move away from the offencive shit hes done bc he knows its fucked up and wrong
