Being called a "Nerd" is not an insult.

If we continue to treat the word "nerd" as an insult, it only makes sense that we will unconsciously equate intelligence with something to be ashamed of. Phrases like "you talk white," and "you act white" only further prove the rhetoric that appearing intelligent is odd. It is common to turn on the tv or go on social media platforms and see constant imagery of ignorance shown. Not to mention, the people who promote this ignorant behavior are being compensated for it. This can make many people believe that promoting ignorance and negativity can lead to financial freedom and popularity. So when we call someone a "nerd" as an insult, but then turn around and call ourselves or others thugs, bitches, real ......, what does that say about what we deem as cool?

Religion Sells
Sex Sells
Ignorance Sell
Knowledge stays on the shelf.
