Yes, All Lives Should Matter...
But, Obviously They Don't!







This is an excellent read! They actually get it... even down to noticing how their friends have sympathy for every other tragedy that occurs except those associated with the loss of black lives. Every solider we can get in this fight for equality in our own country is welcome. Kudos to them and I hope more will see the light and join the struggle!

Forgive Them, For They Know Not What They Do?




Shaun King is a writer for the NY Daily News and he is calling attention to the fact that in America, there is a blatant double standard when it comes to forgiveness and race. Just like everything else in this country, the same 'unspoken rules' don't apply to everyone. However, let's take a moment to be clear about forgiveness.

As Christians, forgiveness is something that God expects all of us to do if we ultimately want to be forgiven ourselves. Most of us who are God-fearing know this, but there's one thing that everyone seems to forget about forgiveness. You need to REPENT and ASK for it. It's not something that is 'automatically' extended to us. When you do these things, God will be merciful and grant you forgiveness. I think it's pretty safe to say that most of us are still a 'work in progress' when it comes to our Christianity. As a result, forgiveness doesn't come easy and takes time for some situations. And, if we eventually choose to forgive someone for a wrong they have done toward us without them asking for it, it's usually because we allowed ourselves sufficient time to hurt, grieve, etc. and we've reached the point in which we NEED to forgive them in order to move on and become whole again.

Now, with that being said, I encourage you to click on the image or text link underneath and read Shaun's article. I agree with it and once again, this is just one more example of how race plays a part in EVERYTHING that is done, felt, spoken, and thought in America... even when it comes to forgiveness.

#BlackLivesMatter Vs. #AllLivesMatter




Although his blog post is a little dated (December 2015), here's a black man and professor who made it through an unexpected encounter with police on his way to work and lived to tell about it. But, bare in mind that through the entire ordeal, he didn't know if he would live to see another day. And, as usual, the thread of comments that follow continue to prove that we have a long difficult road ahead when it comes to getting on one accord about this issue because some people 'get it' and others don't or won't. Now that you've seen several viral videos on the internet and across social media that show how easily a black man can loss his life at the hands of police, you are encouraged to click on the image or text link underneath to visit Steve's blog and read his the post, if you dare. Oh, and make sure you read the comments too. All I can say is, God help us...

Things That Make You Go Hmmm...



Just in case you need someone to blame for the chaos in Dallas!

OMG! Are Your Serious? SMH...



May your souls rest in peace in the arms of the Lord.

I cannot believe we have to add 2 MORE NAMES* within a 24-hour period of time to the list of police shootings of Black Americans. Shame on you America for closing your ears, eyes, and mind to what is going on around you. Shame on you for being more concerned about Hillary Clinton's emails (and everything else under the sun) over human life.

What kind of country are we living in where a 4-year-child can sit in the back of a car and watch her stepfather murdered in cold blood by someone who is suppose to protect and serve? Then, that same 4-year-old child having to shoulder the enormous responsibility of being a voice of 'calm and comfort' to mom while they ride together in the back of a police van after such a horrific incident. Those 4-year-old eyes witnessed something that never should have happened. What affects one of us, should affect all of us. A nation divided cannot stand. We need to come together and work toward justice and resolution for this outrageous problem.

My heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to the families of the victims in these most recent and senseless tragedies. I grieve and stand with you.

#BatonRougeShooting #BlackLivesMatter #EnoughIsEnough


Well, so much for police body cams and what are the consequences for not having them on? "If you have no interest in equal rights for black people, then do not make suggestions to those who do. Sit down." - Jesse Williams
