Ultimate Wishes for Changing America Pt. 1

Yesterday I wrote aboutĀ Religious Bystanders in PoliticsĀ and racked my brain thinking of the different fields that need immediate change. Last week, a close friend asked me if I had the power to make anything I say come true without consequence, what would I do? The catch is, I do not know how long my powers… Continue reading Ultimate Wishes for Changing America Pt. 1

Religious Bystanders in Politics

This weekend I spent a lot of time just existing. It's good to take some time off of writing to recharge the battery and refill the heart. In the midst of that, I found myself hurting. The more stories I read of misfortune, the more my heart hurts. I really question shouldn't every Christian feel… Continue reading Religious Bystanders in Politics

I originally was debating on doing a full album review today or not but I finally got a chance to see Kendrick's ELEMENT video, the third video from his album DAMN. I watched it and felt it connects with the topics I've been touching on this week. Kung Fu Kenny's back again. This video said… Continue reading Kendrick Lamar – ELEMENT

Ubuntu: The Essence of Humanity

One of the most eye-opening moments in my life was when I was sitting in the audience of Marc Lamont Hill speaking on Martin Luther King Day. I initially didn't know what to expect but he eventually let me stunned as he ended the speech about activism and the concept of Ubuntu. Ubuntu has become… Continue reading Ubuntu: The Essence of Humanity

Women in Politics

While I have been studying politics for nearly four years at this point, I am still a relative neophyte to the national players and inner-workings of Washington. Recently, I was asked, how do I feel about women in Politics? In short, I love women in Politics. The most obvious question in connection with women in… Continue reading Women in Politics

Personal Police Stories & Blackness

There is a common misconception in the media about black people and the police. Some people trust them, some hate them, and some are indifferent. Growing up in Detroit, I was indifferent. A lot of my personal interactions were good. Police came to school to talk, Police Athletic League, and some of the officers I… Continue reading Personal Police Stories & Blackness

Struggling with Race, Religion, & Justice

Following the full acquittal of countless officers killing unarmed, innocent, or mentally ill Black people nationwide visibly for the last few years, I tend to go through emotional phases. Sometimes I am angry, dejected, depressed, contemplative, confused, frustrated, and even moved to action. However, since I've been getting deeper into my Bible, I've struggled with… Continue reading Struggling with Race, Religion, & Justice

A Moment’s Reprise

I had planned to write about SZA's CTRL album as I've been listening to at, reading the lyrics, and finding interviews all week. However, I find myself with a heavy heart today. The murder of Philando Castile by Officer Jeronimo Yanez reached complete acquittal of all charges today. I'm sick. I promise I will finish… Continue reading A Moment’s Reprise

Allyship, Feminism, Intersectionality and Me

My goal for this week is to dedicate this week to women and various topics along the spectrum. I touched on something from the Bible regarding womanhood, I spoke on the Wonder Woman movie and today I wanted to talk about allyship, feminism, and intersectionality.   I've been thinking for the past few months about… Continue reading Allyship, Feminism, Intersectionality and Me
