Friends are supposed to be good for you, and vice versa. What happens when that goodness is threatened (perceived or real)?
You might have friends or acquaintances whose relatives have broken the law. So, the crime isn’t committed by your friend, but a relative of theirs. Will you remain friends with your friend?
Would having a friend who has a criminal relative affect the way you relate with that friend? Would it be easy to trust him? Bassey thinks it shouldn’t matter.
It really shouldn’t matter, but we’re not wired that way. It’s hard to dissociate a bad name from others associated with it.
In a time where people are quick to cancel or cut off people for anything that may be incriminating, it makes you wonder if the punishment for one person’s crime should be meted on the rest of his family.
