Supreme Court of the United States 1 First St NE Washington, DC 20543 7/27/20 Dear Honorable Justices Roberts, Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan, With all due respect, how long has it been since you’ve read the Constitution of the United States of America?  I had assumed individuals in your position referenced it often as it’s the foundation for the rule of law in our country. … Continue reading Letter to the US Supreme Court

Repeat After Me

Indoctrination noun the process of teaching a person or group to accept a set of beliefs uncritically. It’s all colleges in this country do.  Indoctrinate.  You’ll pick up enough occupational skills to learn the rest on the job, but for the most part, they’ll tell you how to think.  At top colleges, liberal professors outnumber conservative ones 12 to 1.  Is that a healthy, moderate … Continue reading Repeat After Me

Class Identity & Racism

Racism noun the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races. The “white privilege” theory is, by definition, racist.  If you subscribe yourself to the notion that the individual and their own experiences hold less weight than the group you assign that person … Continue reading Class Identity & Racism

Emotional Change

Often times, emotion is the instigator to great change.  If you’ve ever been fed up with something, then you know what I mean. Feelings are great, but they should always be scrutinized.  Why are you feeling this way?  Does it make sense with reality?  Important conversation about change should never be devoid of facts.  If the facts make you emotionally uncomfortable, maybe your emotions are … Continue reading Emotional Change

An example of flawed Biblical application

Sounds good, right?  I’m not arguing that black lives don’t matter… they quite obviously do.  But to imply that the 99 sheep aren’t in danger is ludicrous. How are the 371 white people killed by police (compared to 236 black) in 2019 “not in danger”? The Bible doesn’t imply that the 1 sheep is black, the Bible implies that all life is worth trying to … Continue reading An example of flawed Biblical application

Facts > Feelings

For a split second, we all agreed on something.  George Floyd was needlessly killed. Then the media made it about race, and look at us now. Feelings are quite often misleading. Here are some indisputable facts: In 2016, black people were killed by white people 243 times, while white people were killed by black people 533 times. That’s over twice as many.  Black people make … Continue reading Facts > Feelings

Black Lives Matter

It’s true.  They do matter.  Of course they matter.  They matter just as much as any other human life. George Floyd should not have died.  He was killed by a Minneapolis police officer’s excessive use of force.  It’s awful.  The officer(s) should face prosecution for how they handled the whole situation and Mr. Floyd’s death.  There are other instances across the country where unarmed black … Continue reading Black Lives Matter

Lord, Protect Me

From those with opinions I didn’t ask for. Show me how to love like You and still ignore. From those who create turmoil between the lines. And give me patience when I don’t see the signs. From the pressure of expectations created by anyone but You. I don’t want it easy, but I only want to do what You want me to. From my mirror … Continue reading Lord, Protect Me

The Free American

Can a governing authority create a law that contradicts the Constitution? The 1st Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America says this: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government … Continue reading The Free American
