It's not easy being a Black Christian with a revolutionary mindset. You are called a racist by insecure & insensitive white folks on a regular basis. You are called an "agent", "Uncle Tom", "coon", "brainwashed" or worst by other non-Christian Black People. You are criticized for not being enough of a Christian and too Black by other Black Christians. Your choices become either sellout and start buck dancing for white folks, or renounce your faith for Non-Christian black folks, or act like your skin color is "clear" and be willfully blind to the social injustices against Black People in order to please black church folks. Well, I'm not doing any of that so you can forget it. I'm going to be who I am whether you like it or not.

The violence in the world is never a surprise to me anymore, but the insensitivity to the suffering of others who are victims of it by those who claim to be morally upright or godly is always a disappointment. "Sodom and Gomorrah" represent actual places that were subjected to divine judgment, but for much more than what most folks zero in on that makes their story famous. Sexual perversion was not the only abomination Sodom & Gomorrah was guilty of, nor is it the first thing mentioned when God Almighty gives his reasons for why he destroyed them in judgment. Sadly, The Most High couldn't even find ten righteous people for whom he would have spared the whole for. History has a funny way of repeating itself if we're not careful, and we're even worst.

I tried to watch the new "ROOTS" miniseries remake but I can't watch the whole thing and don't like certain subtle messages in it. I don't knock anybody else for watching it, but I just can't do it. I still haven't made it through "12 Years A Slave" and probably never will because these movies anger me deeply no matter how historically accurate they may be. I'm aware of the true history and brutality of Western Colonial slavery, but no amount of stories made into movies will ever get the descendants of the architects of these European colonial powers who colonized & enslaved others to admit the criminality of it and set things right that their ancestors made wrong.

AN OPEN LETTER TO (SOME) CHRISTIAN PREACHERS: I haven't said much on ministry or Church issues lately but recently a few folks who call themselves by these various titles of some kind of preacher have gotten my attention because they have been up to no good with their same old self promotion without any humility, so this is directly to them. There's no need to comment in their defense unless you follow them and feel you need to defend your own bad decision for your seared consciousness sake because you're convicted, yet trying to justify your bad judgment and lack of discernment in supporting them. No matter how sincere a person started out what makes them false now is the fact they continue to teach false doctrine while leading a false lifestyle. Don't let fame or acclaim fool you or you're just a fool being easily fooled; which is what they count on. Now on to these preachers...
