We Just Lost One: Bye Lecrae

We Just Lost One: Bye Lecrae

Since Ferguson, Lecrae’s been much more vocal about racial injustice, and he’s taken some heat for that. In recent interviews he’s implied this backlash has come because American Christians are just too privileged to “get it”. According to him, the American Christian culture sees a black man speaking on such matters as being “too black”.

But as a Black Christian, I’ve have to interject and say, NO, my brotha! That is NOT the heart of the issue.

To Haters, With Love: Why #IStandWithParis + #BlackLivesMatter Are the Same Thing

To Haters, With Love: Why #IStandWithParis + #BlackLivesMatter Are the Same Thing

I stand with Paris 100%...it's my most beloved international city! Those close to me know that I am a lifelong francophile - a lover of all things french, but Paris has my heart.  My bedroom decor is Parisian-themed. I’ve traveled to, dined and shopped in Paris all alone but, in my awe of such a gorgeous city with amazingly friendly people, I was never lonely...

Again, I LOVE PARIS!!! But here is my issue with the “Twitter Twits”, as I’ve coined them, who DARE compare the terrorism Paris has experience to the racism experienced in the US (and in Africa and other parts of the world, for that matter): WHY ARE YOU ONLY #prayingforparis?
