I wear proudly
A reflection of my self determination
To explore my true selves education
A symphony of oneness that makes me me
See I was once that girl afraid to show off the true beauty that my melanin generates
Malaysian weaves, Koreans nails, and clothes that eyes wished they could penetrate
I was living in a fantasy world
Trying to imitated a carbon copy that would always reject me
I was living blindly in a sea of mis-fits and fit-ins
Trying to advertise my natural assets
Just so I could get my ass set
A society made dis-formed barbie
That’s was me
Until i EMBRACED my Crown and allowed it to make me all that i could be
Now I’m a knowledge seeking, conspiracy pushing, Egyptian moorish freak
And yes I say freak, see that’s alright with me I’d rather stand aside from what society wants me…
She’s so numb with hate she doesn’t know how true this is:
Sarah Palin on Rachel Dolezal: “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t laugh … this hard”
“Ok, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t laugh… this hard. I know this isn’t a victimless crime, what this white chick perpetrated. But it’s a most crystal clear picture of so many screwed up things we’ve let society adopt as the norm. Namely, the practice nowadays of judging someone not based on character, but on skin color. Our original civil rights freedom fighters are rolling in their graves over the backward steps we’ve taken lately. It’s politically incorrect to call out Elizabeth Warren for falsely claiming she’s American Indian, or dinging Obama for just making up his former multi-ethnic girlfriend, and I guarantee I’ll be branded a racist for laughing at this Rachel Dolezal story. Whatever. Dolezal is an unsatisfied lily white leftist who believes the only thing less politically correct than being a white girl is to be a white guy today. Can’t help but be preemptively amused as I post this and invite Dolzel’s defenders wrath to aim and miss at we who won’t put up with political correctness destroying truth in America.”
If noticing that there might be more to Dolzel’s story than an opportunity for cheap shots from a lucky idiot makes me Dolzel’s politically correct defender than so be it.
“Our” Civil Rights Freedom Fighters? Palin would have been one of the first to leave her church to set their buses on fire.
There’s something nauseating about a blatant racist and homophobe lecturing us on the need to judge people on the content of their character.
Thank you Danica! I’m honored to accept this award.

Recently a straight Christian couple in Australia vowed to divorce if gay marriage is legalized there. While few people go to such extreme and public lengths in protest, they aren’t really breaking any new ground, as followers of Jesus have been arguing for decades that same-sex marriage essentially cheapens the sacred institution itself. Further (as we see in our Aussie friends) those same folks often make the claim that Gay Marriage as an entity actually adversely impacts their personal spousal partnership.
Of all the arguments you’ll ever hear on the subject, this one is easily the flimsiest and most frightening: that gay people marrying devalues anyone’s straight marriage, like a foreclosed house taking down property values in the neighborhood. Marriage isn’t a community exercise, it’s a lifelong covenant between two people; before God (if they claim faith) and before friends and loved ones as witnesses. They are not beholden to anyone but their spouse in honoring, nurturing…
