How Should I Respond to This Negative Comment About Flint?
Those who follow me on YouTube, you know my channel is all about sneakers. Last year I visited Sneaker Con Chicago and turned the camera on to capture my experience. This was my first time at Sneaker Con and I had a great time. But yesterday, April 24th,213, a subscriber of mine left a negative comment about my beloved city of Flint. I need your help in how I should respond.
I love my hometown. I do not enjoy the violence and poverty here but this is my home. Looking down on the place that raised ME is really not a good look. Never will I treat my hometown of Flint, Michigan like is a the worst place ever.
The media across this county has painted Flint as one of the worst places to live. I disagree but I understand why they may feel that way. I fully understand what the YouTube user was saying and believe he or she may felt it was a light joke. I get tired of people talking bad about Flint. It needs to stop.
Why kick someone when they're down?
So I need you're help on how to respond to this comment. I never return negative to negative, no one wins. But I am lost for words on this one. What do you think I should say to this user? Leave your thoughts in the comment sections below.
