What an incredible year. I will be happy to see the end of December…… it cannot get here fast enough. Without doubt, the choice of Donald Trump to the Presidency of the United States will be the highlight of the insanity that 2016 has been. Along with the Russians hacking of the United States election; the proliferation of fakes news pervading the internet in general, and Facebook the vehicle for false and misleading stories. What is truth and what is fiction.
In 2016, United States is more divided than ever, and more like the late 1890s and beyond, when lynching was part of an informal system of white supremacy. A time of political suppression of Blacks by white, who blame the Blacks for their economic hardships, and loss of social and political privileges. Now, there are more groups to marginalize and the perpetuation of murdering Black men and women, not by vigilante mobs, but by white law enforcement officers, seem to be the goal of intimidation.
It was a tough year for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Kim has not been the same since robbers tied her up and lifted $10 million of jewelry. Yeezy been recently released from the hospital for an alleged mental breakdown, that kind of stress could drive anyone to the mad house, but his circle of friends speculate that Kim is driving him crazy and he should run while he can. Kim just love them and leaves them…this looks like a Rap.
Unmarried and pregnant Pastor Desiree Allen of the First Corinthian Baptist Church of New York, has a lot of explaining to do. MS Allen is expecting twins with her finance Tony Elder on January 16, 2017. MS Allen has broken every tenet of the Christian faith but insist on remaining in a leadership role by refusing to step down and seek God’s guidance. MS Allen failed miserably to be a leader of the flock when she has no clue about the birds and bees. She claims to have had sex off and on since she was fifteen and never been pregnant. What about not having sex while preaching from the pulpit about fornication and adultery. MS Allen can hardly be a role model for the young ladies who attend her church, as in, ‘do as I say, not as I do’.
This is a case of blatant chutzpah and hypocrisy at the highest level. I must say; however, she’s got balls. I guess it is up to the church to throw her a decent wedding, thank goodness, she would not be officiating.
