» Eddie Glaude Speaks Bluntly on Racism in America

One of the things that made me feel happy .. was this statement made by Eddie Glaude. He is a professor of African American Studies at Princeton.

The mere fact that a a black man is speaking aloud these words on television .. this a big deal.

Eddie Glaude says America likes to tell itself myths and fables about our inherent goodness in order to hide our dark secrets so we can maintain a willful ignorance that protects our innocence. (7 Aug 2019)

You almost can't believe what your ears are hearing. In the grand scheme of things, this is a big deal.

» Feeling Habakkuk and his Complaint

There is much ugliness there. So much of it that I could feel Habakkuk when he wrote to God. (Rad paraphrase.)

"Why are you making see all this nasty shit? .. where nasty fuckheads trick-fuck good people and then get away with it.

"This shit has been going on for so long now, and it shows no signs of abating any time soon."

"Justice is a joke .. a bad joke. How are you tolerating this?"

It is just a sad state of affairs that our government has become.

» Whatever has Happened to the Republican Moral Compass Under Trump?

Coffee Joe also called out the Republicans for repeatedly lacking the moral courage to stand up to Trump's blatant and overt racism.

President Trump identifies with and defends hate groups in America

He took the side of a black man and publicly called out Trump in Elijah's defense. This made me think of what Marshall did here.

This is where you separate the men from the boys. This is where you separate those with a moral backbone from the moral invertebrates .. from those who shrink back in fear at the idea of confronting Trump's nakedly racist rhetoric.

I bet that Beto knows exactly what I am talking about here.

Beto O'Rourke says that Trump is actively promoting the racism that has led to the deaths in El Paso (4 Aug 2019)

This is why I included an image-link to this video where Coffee Joe poses the question » "Whose side are you on?" .. way back on Page One here.

I clearly remember the Way that the Boss was working that racist angle.

» It Gets Worse Before It Gets Better

These mature life-experiences that we encounter while growing up can now help us deal with these injustices in ways that we were not able to handle back when we were small and defenseless.

Though I admit that, in the short-term, it can definitely suck gigantic goose eggs. You are staring at these ugly scenes openly and honestly and feeling all the effects come swarming back from the abyss.

It is certainly a therapeutic thing, in the long run, to consciously revisit these places of trauma in a mature way .. when you are older and stronger and wiser and smarter and possess many mature life-experiences.

As a side-thought here, on the subject of » things best left unsaid ..

What do you think about the idea that everybody, every sentient-being, who is made in the image-n-likeness of God .. the Living God Himself ..

.. what do you think about the idea that every such creature has a moral obligation to speak out? .. in whatever way they choose.

» My Experience has been that Gays are Typically More Compassionate Human Beings with a Better Moral Compass

I have said it before, and I will say it again .. it has been my experience that your average gay person is simply a better human being, with a better moral compass ..

What a dick .. trying to take away what little the poor have.

I wonder what the Apostles think of Jake the Dick.

I can guarantee you that Jake is not gay. He makes my point for me.

Thank-you, Jake. Thank-you for making my point for me.

Dude, you need to chill the fuck out. Take a yoga class or something. Try some deep-breathing exercises. You're obviously wound way too tight.

It surprises me how vigorously you fight to take away what little the poor have.

You must want very badly to take away what little the poor have .. it seems obvious to everyone.

She says that » "Connection is why we're here."

Notice that Brené is wearing brown .. a brown shirt.
