Is it dumb to embrace a relative you barely know, as if to say you're proud to share the family tree, but that relative is immoral & corrupt?
I understand that mothers tend to play that same "double standard" rule, particularly if their son is a murderer who was incarcerated. Naturally, a mother would say "My baby can do no wrong" while forever holding O.J. Simpson in the lowest regard. When it comes to family, it's natural to always come to their defense... but only if they're IMMEDIATE family. Is it ridiculous to defend a morally corrupt relative you barely know, just because you feel proud to be part of the same bloodline?
