I don't know, I think he's right, because far too many people find the truth very offensive.  

 

However:

 

I find it offensive that there is a big ass church in almost every Black neighborhood, no matter how poor and disadvantaged the people in the community are, and no matter how many Black children and Black youth have no where to go but the streets after school and on weekends, the "Black Church" has it doors shut closed. 

 

I find it offensive that so many Black people will pile their ass up in some building every Sunday and often during the week, to sing and dance shout and allow "ministers" and "preachers" to milk thousands, hundreds of thousand, millions of dollar from them, but they won't show up in any building and "donate" any amount of money toward programs to keep Black children and youth off the streets or assist in their education, or make the communities Black children and Black youth have to live in a safe, clean environment to raise kids.

  I totally agree my sista.  The Black Church ...many of 'em have been exposed to what they really are:  predators glory.  They no longer contribute to the community that has been their legacy.  Although there may be good churches out there, however it appears to ME that more have contaminated the social fiber of the black community by their passive nonactive behavior during the height of crisis in our culture...especially during the two major epidemics in the last 30 years,  So folks can continue to believe that black churches are the vein of our community...if this so?  Then our community has flat lined years ago.  Well in my neck of the woods....anyway.    But!  

Please, church had become about the ONLY place people could dance and sing; the sounds emanating from the choirs, the sounds of angels. That all changed drastically.  It used to be the ONLY place people could gather without getting shot; just being together with the love we used to have for each other as people/friends.  That's even changed now.  Members have forgotten about the Mother Mary and are messing with the church Sisters Mary or the Brothers/Deacons.  Can't get your recreation on anywhere these days, without first notifying the nearest Undertaker that you might not make it home.

Let's say, for the sake of argument, that Jesus does answer prayers, just how many Black people do you think are actually praying for anything other than money, materialism, and themselves?

 

I doubt that there are many Black "Christians" [or any other religion] even giving a second thought to the to the politics, historical contexts, systems, powers and principalities that are really the reasons so many Black people live in misery, poverty, and under the threat of police brutality, genocide, war, and disease across the globe. 

It's not only "Black" folks living in misery.  I don't know how many "Black" folks have had their heads chopped off recently.  That's some barbaric shit!!!!!!  There are NO WORDS!!!!!!!

Yeah, Western Arms Sells and War Profiteering.  

 

It's eerie the similarities between someone crazy enough and/or dirty enough to actually sell psychos like ISIL military weapons in the first place, and those crazy enough and/or dirty enough to "give" military weapons to racist American police.    

 


 

  Me personally don't believe in these MAN-made religions cuz they are not real life.  No one  has EVER walked on water and survived ...or..... made wine from water....and I don't know about yall.  But I have a problem with 12 men running behind slobbering over one man with long hair.  It's not NORMAL!!!!  But most importantly I don't BELIEVE in anything that throw women and child under the bus.  And have a blind eye to sexual child abuse from men who claim to be religious  It;s a game yall.  And all you have to do is check out who is benefitting and who is being shafted.  They would be us.  I always say "if EVER the time to split the sea?  God should have came or sent Jesus  during slavery"...he didn't.  And so for me?  Nawl.  Yall can keep that religion shyte...I'm straight. Cuz I KNOW we shoooooo gonna find out the REAL deal after we're gone from earth and can't come back to tell.   But! 

 

 

Will someone tell the ungodly rich (whatever name you want here), that when the planet is thoroughly DESTROYED, money isn't going to do anyone any damn good.  White folks, with all your money, all your riches, all your damned facelifts, you sho' 'nuff don't look any damn better than any one else, from the blackest to the transparent.  When you die, you'll be just like like the rest of the corpses, DEAD!!!!!!!

 

Where's Darren Wilson?

Yeah, there was a time . . . thing is, African folks would be singing Gospel without Christianity. What we call Gospel is a spiritual force from Africa.

Some called it The Force during the Civil Rights movement. Despite everything, the Church serves as a repository of that Force. IMHO, of course.

indeed.  very many people use the christianity of black people as an excuse to loathe there own people.  If the masses of black people were agnostic, those same anti-black-christians would become anti-agnostic.

Peace Norland,

 

I think the only thing that has happened is that technology has enabled us to see more than we should about negative events happening around the world.  All that negative information skews our outlook.

do you understand that all of that you just said is taking place only in your own head?  Your conclusions are based on nothing other than your own skepticism.. which is..  all in your own head.   You really have to come out of there if you want to see what's really what..    #justsaying.

eh?

Either you know nothing of African American history or African history and what is currently affecting African Americans, Africans and Black people throughout the entire Black diaspora, or you need to explain exactly what you are talking about.  

 

Police brutality, torture and murder of Black people in America is not all in my head or anyone else's head; you need to tell that to all the families that have had their sons, brothers, husbands, nephews, fathers and daughters, brutalized, tortured and murdered by racist homicidal cops in America.  

 

Tell that to all the Africans,that have been brutalized, tortured, raped and murdered in genocide wars, civil wars or brutalized, tortured or murdered in foreign countries just for trying to even approach their borders as refuges.

 

Tell it to the  Aborigines whose entire country was stolen from them and whose numbers dwindled through a genocide war against them, where they were hunted down and shot like rats, and to those in Paupa New Guinea where Indonesia is committing the exact same genocide against them as we speak.

 

Tell that to all the Africans in Israel that are being beaten, imprisoned, discriminated against and sterilized without their knowledge and consent or coerced into it.  Tell it to all the Africans and Black people throughout the Black Diaspora that have died from AIDS and Ebola germ warfare.  

 

Tell it to the the entire race of Black people on earth who have suffered from the invasions, kidnappings, enslavement and colonization of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and Imperialism and Colonization of Africa, after centuries of suffering from the Arab Slave Trade and centuries of invasions.

 

Tell it to all the Africans who's natural resources are still being exploited to support Western nations, while the majority of Africans languish in poverty.

 

Tell it to all the African Americans that are still alive that have actual memory or were actual witnesses to the countless Lynchings, or having Black families burned to death in their homes in the middle of the night or where the entire Black population was forced to have to leave overnight or in hurried intervals to stay alive.  

 

And that's just a very rushed synopsis of small pieces of the big picture.  

 

Facts and actually occurrences are not just all in anyone's head.  However, living on D'Nile about it all is just in some people's head.
