A Female “Jim Crow”……

This story has LITERALLY floored me this evening…. I mean really? Some black folk kill me with their LACK of respect of their own identity – It is a SAD DAY in America with it being 2013 and this JIM CROW Black Woman acting like this!

An African North Carolina pastor is facing backlash after she requested “only  white people” work as greeters at the church she leads. This woman has a smile on her face but her mind and intentions toward her own race CLEARLY says something different.

In an email, Pastor Makeda Pennycooke of Freedom House in Charlotte said  “first impressions matter,” and the church wants “the best of the best on the  front doors.”

“We anticipate having an increase in the number of people visiting and  attending Freedom House over the next few weeks,” she wrote. “We are continuing to work to bring our racial  demographic pendulum back to mid-line, so we would like to ask that only white  people be on the front doors.”

The church said the pastor apologized, and released a full statement that  said Pennycooke was writing because “the greeting team was no longer reflecting  the racial diversity of our entire congregation.”

“She made an error in judgment in requesting all white greeters at the front  door, going overboard in placing emphasis on any one race over another in trying  to highlight diversity within the greeting team,” the statement continued. “She  admits this was a grave lapse in judgment and is sincerely sorry for her  actions.”

I bet this AFRICAN AMERICAN PASTOR ….had a POOR lapse in judgement but I do NOT feel that she is sorry – She is sorry that the members of her church told the media about!

Never thought I would see a BLACK …Jim Crow ..ESPECIALLY in the “form of” a Pastor! This country is full of surprises!

Well, I will just not only pray but I will ALSO find other ways to be of an help to make a difference….. Sign petitions… show up for rallies…show up & PARTICIPATE in town hall conversations etc.. ( THIS COULD HAVE EASILY BEEN MY KID )

It is MORE than just praying – you also have to do something as well…..before the black males in this country becomes an endangered species! ! #truth

Nobody’s Friend –


Hello, My name is GOSSIP and I am indeed nobody’s friend…Now or ever!

I maim without killing, I break hearts and ruin lives beceause I enjoy seeing people miserable

I am cunning and malicious and for my benefit, I seem to gather strength with lingering topics

The more I am quoted, the more I am beleived! I love the strength that people give me!

My victims are so helpless that they cannot protect themselves against me because I have no name, face, age, color, sex, religion, creed, height, weight or social class!

To track me down is impossible “most times” because I can ALWAYS seem to find someone to CARRY ME!! The harder you try, the more elusive, sly and sneaky I become!

Trust me…. I am indeed nobody’s friend! Why dont people beleive that because I will never ever change who I am… Why should I change when I get fed everyday from the negative thoughts people have against one another.

It is like playing trick or treat everyday, so who needs to wait until Halloween for negativity when I have people in the workplace, at school, at home, in the street and my FAVORITE PLACE seems to be the CHURCH! I am so welcomed there!!

Once I tarnish a reputatuin, it is most likely never to be the same, thanks to people carrying me around from one place to another! I am so excited that my name is GOSSIP because I am one of a kind! I topple governments and I have a ball in wrecking marriages and friendships! I also like to ruin careers and casuse sleepless nights, major heartache, pain which can sometimes lead to ulcers and mess up my fellow GOSSIP partners indigestion! I dont feel bad because carrying ME “comes with the territory” ya know!

Let’s not forget, I prey on make INNOCENT people cry into their pillows at night and make them so miserable that they cant even pray to GOD “about me”…..

Wow, I am so powerful!! I have all of the people in the world to thank for my strength because every moment of the day in ANY GIVEN TIME ZONE… I am being carried!! Yeah me!! Mr and Mrs GOSSIP! I feel honored that soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many people would be that interested in carrying ME to people that I do not even know!

I make headlines and breaking news so much that most times, I do not have to even work at being me because so so many other people have desired to do my job for me! One of the BEST PARTS of being ” me ” is that I am even able to set an EXAMPLE for kids! How nice!!

Yes!!! >>> My name is GOSSIP and I approve this message!

PEOPLE SHOULD NOT GOSSIP! GET THE POINT????
