This was great yo.
@mralpete indeed it was
Although i don’t subscribe to #Christianity being a Christian , or subscribe to any religious “group” for that matter. I do think it’s very important for people to have a solid foundation of belief to stand firm in. However I think to argue semantics of which religion is the “Right” religion is pretty ridiculous because if everyone is honest with themselves & isn’t taken over by their #cognitivedissonance they’d admit that NO ONE “TRULY” KNOWS ANYTHING to be FACT!! ANYTHING!! we just know that their is a MASTER designer bigger than we can imagine to create such a. Thing called #LIFE So I don’t understand thinking on such a small scale & caring to deem another persons beliefs WRONG because they don’t align with your own. A lot of people denounce the #Bible#Quran Hinduism etc & that tells me you aren’t 100% aware of 1. What you’re reading. 2. You don’t understand the concept of parables & allegorical meaning 3. You are too closed minded to find truths in all things. A person who cant find lessons in ALL things & people will always miss out if information needed to grow. Do i believe every single detail from these books no, would i allow someone with proper guided knowledge (NOT PASSION) of these books teach & read to me YES. Because i believe truths are found in them all & i KNOW who my #GOD is ...My #GOD is all encompassing, universe, nature, animals, humans LIFE itself & my #GOD Does not have a female or male “gender” that a misogynistic society formed! Lol MY GOD IS BIGGER THAN THAT #iDigress
...i tend to keep IG light but...
"WE LIT BRUH, WE GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL!!!"
blank stare followed by, "you ain't for the Eagles???"
nope, i'm really for human rights and ending #institutionalracism... in my eyes, the Super Bowl isn't going to do THAT for ANYONE ... respectfully... so nope, i'm not watching. .
"THIS N*GGA IS FUCKIN TRIPPIN!!! WE'RE GOING TO THE FUCKIN SUPER BOWL!" **gives a knowing nod & high- five to a random grinning white dude standing nearby**
...i stared into this knee-grow's face wondering if he was somebody that i knew from my past, someone that perhaps didn't get the memo that calling me a n*gga could cause you serious physical conflict due to YOUR poor life decisions...i thought about the fact that i grew up in Boston before living in Philly and had experienced the enlightened #institutionalracism that both cities had to offer, regardless of both NFL teams now in the Super Bowl... i thought about my daughter, a wondrous young woman of color who loves cartoons that DON'T reflect anything positive about her heritage... i thought about the random white guy, grinning at the mention of "n*ggas are trippin"...i thought about the fact that i'm too mature to be sitting in someone's precinct over, THIS... ...but my blood DEMANDED action... shit...
**with a deep breath and evenly measured words** ...my brotha, THIS Black MAN has never been ANYONE'S "n*gga", and those that believe that, are indeed trippin... be cool my brother... you enjoy the game.
and then with focused steps i walked away... this season i haven't seen ONE SINGLE PLAY, let alone a set of downs (and i LOVE watching the NFL) ...but hey, enjoy the game, enjoy the rooting for "your team", no harm, no foul... it's REALLY cool, this is just MY personal choice... in some eyes, i suppose that i'm just an ungrateful son of a b*tch (who desires all to walk free)... #fuck45#fuckdrumpf#fuckmisogyny#fuckracism .
