OK, Cut Tariq from Power Some Slack

Okay we've got to cut to Tariq some slack!  Wait wait wait, let me explain!  For those of you who watch Power on Staz religiously like I do, it has been so frustrating during the past season and the past few weeks of this season to watch Tariq spiral into being an angry little brat.  I mean even I have posted about how much this kid sucks.  But I think that we have to remember one thing,  Tariq's attitude is a product of Ghost's decisions.

One:  We have to respect the fact that Tariq is a child and that he is still angry about his father abandoning his mother.  Even though you only have one life to live and you should do the things that make you happy, your choices ALWAYS  have consequences.  OF COURSE his actions were going to come with some repercussions regarding his children.

Two:  This is also a result of trying to live in two different worlds.  Ghost is a drug dealer from the streets but he did not want to raise his family in that lifestyle so he has one foot in one world and the other foot in another world.  With that being said, Tariq was not raised with that streetwise mentality of "family before everything".  He's understandably acting out in the only way that he knows how and that's by being an angry little brat.  Call me a softy, but I'm still waiting on him to have his shining moment!

Have you been watching Power the season? Tell me your thoughts about how frustrating it is to watch Tariq this season.

Until Next Time...
