****Disclaimer: some people’s feelings may get hurt**** I’ve recently felt very alone. I have plenty of friends and my life is truly fabulous, but I come from a place where many of my very best friends are white. With all the insane #BLM things happening and police brutality, I’m not really able to explain to them how I feel, and they also don’t really ask. … Continue reading Where Do I Go From Here?
A lot of times I hear people say, “Go back to where you came from.” Believe us, we would if we could. Does no one understand that? I would go somewhere, anywhere, I would leave this place, but my people and I literally have nowhere to go and we are unable to fathom where we could go, thanks to the trans-atlantic slave trade. Do you think that we … Continue reading I’d Leave If I Knew Where To Go.
Yesterday we found out that #AltonSterling was murdered by white police. So, today when I woke up late, I decided not to rush to work. Because I knew that if I rushed, I would speed, and speeding could lead to potentially getting pulled over by the cops, and then I could possibly die. So, I said, fuck that, and took my time.

Whenever I tell people that they normally laugh in my face and think it’s the most outlandish thing I’ve ever said (and believe me, I’ve said some outlandish things). I know I don’t look like the typical minister, but that’s because I’m not. I’m young, I’m edgy and I’m untraditional. It all started back when I was … Continue reading Love Wins. Love Will Always Win.
All right, now I’ve been in the US for quite some time now. It’s actually been over a month and I love the US. I don’t care what anybody says, Philly is my favorite place on the planet. I spent so much time in London, but looking back I can’t say that I cared for London very much. There were so many places that I … Continue reading Back 2 Reality
I think about this wonderful city that I was lucky enough to call home for the past 4 months. I think about all the people that helped me along the way. Whether it was monetary contribution or answering my frantic calls when it was 7 AM EST and noon my time. Whether it was sitting through hour-long the facetimes that I so forcibly bestowed upon … Continue reading As I Sit in the Airport…
