Leadership in the Midnight Hour: Where is President Trump?

If you’ve been paying even minimal attention to current events, then you know Americans are going awwwfff! George Floyd was slowly murdered by four (former) Minneapolis Police Department officers on May 25th, 2020. Bystanders recorded video of Officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on a cuffed and detained George Floyd’s neck. This caused causing a blockage to…

Meet You Halfway

I’m not a particularly big fan of compromise. Let me explain.  When it comes to God and His Word, it is absolute. There are no loopholes with God. You can’t do what you want want (against His Word) and expect no repercussions. Thus, anything that causes me to compromise my salvation or the standards God…

The Romance with Martin Luther King, Jr.

The emergence of the Black Lives Matter movement has sparked many comparisons to the Civil Rights Movement. We can’t talk about the Civil Rights Movement without mentioning one name: Martin Luther King, Jr. As the face of the Civil Rights Movement, King preached nonviolence in an effort make progress in a historically violent country. His…

The Cause

Are you down for the cause? I ask this question because I see so many people that are quick to discredit an issue. They search for anything that will prove an issue is false. Thus, it is a “false narrative.” I’ve seen plenty of people apply this thought process to Black Lives Matter and the…

Game On!

Football season is finally here!! It’s time to root for your favorite team while watching America’s pastime. Sorry baseball. American’s love football! So much so, until people have large gatherings filled with food, laughter, and angst (hey, someone’s team has to lose). Every game is a reason to celebrate. Until the end of the season,…

Why Are You Really Mad?

As most know by now, Colin Kaepernick choose to protest the oppression of people of color in America. How? He sat down during the national anthem at a pre-season NFL football game. In the nature of 2016 America, people are in an absolute uproar over disrespect for the flag. I’ve heard/read several arguments on how profane…

It’s a Simple Question

The BET Awards the last few years have been filled with nonsense. In fact, the further I distance myself from my old life,the more I wonder why I watched BET. That being said, it is no surprise that I skipped this year’s awards. I had absolutely no intention on watching them, and I’m still glad I…

The Loud Silence that is All Lives Matter

Ever since the emergence of the Black Lives Matter movement, there has been a group of people who are thoroughly offended. Such is life in America where people can get uptight about how you sneeze. However, this group is particularly interesting. In the scheme of being offended, they take the cake. Why? They really aren’t…

Super Tuesday

Are we really going to do this? Seriously. Are we really going to elect Donald Trump as the Republican nominee for President of the United States? The man who won’t denounce the Klu Klux Klan. The man who wants to build a wall between Mexico and the United States. The man who will openly, brashly…

It’s the Little Things in Life

I get a lot of my material for my blog from Facebook. That’s probably because I’m on there way too much. However, Facebook is a good source to see people’s true feelings about a subject. One such discussion was about the Baltimore riots. I, of course, was campaigning for something to be done with police…

Mythbusters: Black on Black Crime

Racial tension is at an all time high within the confines of American culture. Events are constantly split into the subject matter of black and white. The events in question, as of late, have been police shootings of unarmed black men. One side argues the shooting was justified. The other side argues the inconsistency of the…

The Danger of Being Colorblind

America is in turmoil. Oh you don’t think so? Well, let me give you some names. Trayvon Martin. Tamir Rice. Oscar Grant. Michael Brown. Walter Scott. Sandra Bland. Eric Garner. Freddie Gray. What do these names have in common? They were all either killed by police, died in police custody, or were killed by a…
