Please join us as we start our series about Christian America. We plan on tackling a number of subjects and breaking down how the roots of American Christianity have been complicit with the toxic environment that we endure today. Not only will I talk about the perpetual racism that is hidden under the shield of Christianity, but how this racism created the religious right and ushered Donald Trump into the White House. We will also discuss the unholy alliance between white nationalists and black nationalists. Additionally, we will discuss how some word of faith pastors (black and white) endorsed and worked feverishly to elect Donald Trump. Additionally, I have questions for the white pastors who pastor black congregations that voted and supported Trump. We will also discuss the difference between white and black Christian identities. And much more…
Please join us tomorrow as we discuss how all of this talk of diversity and inclusion is just smoke and mirrors.
If your so called allies are calling for diversity & inclusion, but neglect to address equality; they truly are happy with the status quo. You will have some people of color rally around and advocate for diversity & inclusion, but only because it benefits them individually. Certain groups will tacitly agree through silence, but thats because they have the same belief system and expect to be empowered for their ‘loyalty.’
When you reject the status quo, challenge the myth of meritocracy, and question the motives of those involved, you are
Please join us as we discuss the magical negro (new blacks) and the Republicans (libertarians & tea partiers) & Democrats (progressive, liberal whites) who love them. They especially like the ones who can’t speak (literally), have been paid off. or are dead. It puts a new spin on being seen and not heard.
The original premise for this show has changed. Initially, I wanted to talk about certain celerities and their inclination to put their feet in their mouths. This subject has been covered by numerous think pieces over the years and you already know how I feel. Between Raina and Red Ninja, I think we’ve said it all.
The distrust of communities of color need to be addressed. We’re good enough to exploit and manipulate, but not good enough to be believed. We’re expected/demanded to vote for the good white people, but not good enough to invest money to encourage voting or listening to our demands. We’re good enough to be the help, entertainment, and/or dish, but not good enough to be considered human and equal.
So much to say, but so little time.
Donald Trump has been sworn into the office of President of the United States. Mass protests have been taking place all over the world and it’s not going away any time soon.
I’m conflicted about being asked to support white women and men for a number of issues that seem self inflicted. I’m conflicted about putting my life, sanity, livelihood, freedom, etc. on the line for people who don’t give a shit about the oppression that people of color endure on a daily basis. I’m conflicted because many of the same people asking for support only seek many people of color ust to be able to claim diversity and inclusion. I’m conflicted because at the end of the parch, parade, protest, etc. they get to go back to their lily white non-black neighbor having lives. I’m conflicted because you blame us for not fixing problems that we never created, but you proit from. I’m conflicted because your support comes with strings and obnoxious demands. I’m conflicted because you intterupt me while I’m speaking and then claim that I am trying to silence you. I’m conflicted because when I seek out other people of color with whom to identify, you then call it reverse racism….when you know good and damn well that you never prepared a place for me at the table until you were called out.
Am I angry? Yes :::crickets::: Do you have anything else to add to that No? I don’t owe you an explanation.
Do I apologize for being angry? Hell NO! You could have said that differently. Fuck you and you can quote me on that.
Can you help me heal? No, I don’t need you to define my pain and determine that I should just get over it.
How long have I felt this way? wtf? Have you been living under a rock?
I’m starting to believe that you get off on people of color being harmed, damaged, disrespected, and marginalied. You never intended on giving up your white privelege. USA!!
