Basically. White folks got some nerve talmbout “you guys can’t separate yourselves it only helps the problem”. Like they wasn’t the ones who invented the segregation tip.

Anonymous said: I'm curious as to why you are Christian given that the Bible has nothing but negative things to say about your sexual orientation, e.g. describing homosexual acts as an "abomination". I'm atheist by the way, just in case if u thought otherwise. Because I feel that your kinda disrespecting yourself dealing with something that says you ain't shit. I feel the same when it comes to women who are dealing with other religions, especially the Abrahamic ones.

I don’t recall reading that in the Bible.

The God that I serve loves everyone and doesn’t make provisions on said love based on the preference we are born with or who we give our love to.

John 4:8 distinctly says that God is love and if one doesn’t know it, they don’t know Him. It doesn’t say “God is love, except as it pertains to homosexual people.”

John 3:16 distinctly says that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son etc etc. It doesn’t say “God loved all of the world, except for gay people.”

Proverbs 8:17 distinctly says that God loves those who love Him & those who seek Me, find Me. It doesn’t say that God shows love to everyone but gay people and plays a mean game of “keep away” because of ones sexual preference.

Maybe I’m wrong in my interpretation (I’m still learning) but the common denominator here seems to be that God is love and that love is unwavering and nondiscriminatory, as we are all His children. I am a Christian because of that love, and no matter other’s interpretation of what His love is about or who it’s reserved for, I’ll continue to love and serve Him.

Hope that helps some. I appreciate you for (at least in MY opinion) asking the question respectfully. Enjoy your evening!

These tweets (and one retweet) are from my friend Ryan, a journalist who has been on the ground in Ferguson for the past few days. (His Twitter account is here, and it’s a great source of updates on the situation there   [x]).

I just wanted to remind everybody that while spreading word about Michael Brown’s unjust murder and the horrifying events of the night of August 14, 2014, please do not oversimplify or ignore the complexities of the situation.

Some journalists in the town have been doing what journalists do: focusing on all the negative aspects about the community to try and make it look like a hell-hole in order to sell their own pictures and stories, and basically all many of them want to do is further their own careers. But focusing on all that negativity only paints the picture of one side of the story, ignoring a lot of other important things going on there.

Please do not fall prey to the media’s game. Anger at the actions of the police in Ferguson is totally justified, but in the midst of that we cannot allow the people who are living with the situation every day to be dehumanized. Despite all this tragedy and chaos going on around them, they’re still a community and in many ways they’re pulling through all of it together. They want peace. Anyone looting or burning things down is a very small portion of the community. The whole story is so much bigger.

A story doesn’t need tear gas to be interesting. We need to hear every side of this story, not just the horrific parts.

TL:DR: please don’t fall prey to media attempts to dehumanize and oversimplify the situation in ferguson!!

Many think Black people in America whine about injustice and racial profiling when it comes to the police, the system. Race in America is important. Things don’t change unless those things begin to affect white Americans. That’s America.

Keri has really gotten good at dealing with the hecklers…kudos, girl.

yaaas Keri!

I’m rooting for Keri.

REAL AF. MY NIGGA.
