The dawn of Wednesday, July 6, 2016 brought about a renewed wave of anxiety in the country as yet another black man was killed by the police under questionable circumstances.

For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 1 Corinthians 1:21, KJV If one does a quick search of the name Jamal Bryant on my blog, they will quickly discover that from my seminary forward […]Read more "Jamal Bryant and the Continued Foolishness of Preaching"
I began to pen this less than one hour after the press conference occurred. Apparently the president of the United States, Barack Obama appeared at a regular press briefing held by White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, and fielded one question surrounding the death of Trayvon Martin and the verdict in the George Zimmerman case […]Read more "Restoring Blackness: Obama’s Commentary on Trayvon Martin"
I’m really not one for reality television series. I am quite convinced they are the birth of the child of unrepentant banality that has devolved from American culture and the Enemy itself. Reality TV reflects the lowest common denominator of what ever should be shown on television and there is no intrinsic value to be had […]Read more "We’re Going to Hell with the ‘Best Funeral Ever’ Along with ‘The Sisterhood’"
In light of the foolatry that has ensued behind the idea that the rapture is going to happen on May 21, 2011 (one of which where an atheist in Tennessee is watching the pets of those expected to get “caught up” and is NOT giving refunds come Sunday morning), I thought I’d add to the […]Read more "Watch Ye Therefore…The End Is Near!"

So some time last night, on Twitter of course, I started seeing one of my followers talk about a FAMU […]Read more "Yes, I Watched the FAMU Sex Tape"

I’ve been rather conscious in the past about not putting people on blast from my blog. It’s rather easy given that many of my topics are about religion and it’s rather easy to call out church names and pastor names. Aside from big timers like a T.D. Jakes or a Creflo Dollar or a Bishop […]Read more "Oh, P.S., On A Final Note…Since I have the floor…"

Okay, yeah, I’m late. It’s February and I’m just now writing this post. Oh well, the joys of having one’s own blog. In short, the Inauguration Planning Committee had an EPIC FAIL when it came to the idea of tickets. So this was the largest we’ve had on record, apparently the city was planning […]Read more "I Still Got My Blue Ticket because [turn to your neighbor and say] “Favor ain’t Fair”: an Uppity Negro Inauguration story, Part Two"
