this week has been a doozy.
the energy has been really off.
sidebar: i feel so depressed it’s ridiculous.
i’ve been questioning my own levels of forgiveness with this botham jean case.
i thought the brother hugging amber guyger was a shocker,
but the father was talking some mess about friends ‘n’ shit.
this is what he said at botham’s congregation…
Addressing Brandt’s grace in the courtroom, Betrum said to the congregation, “I’m not really surprised because I know how we raised him with the spirit of the Lord.”
“We don’t hate you, [Amber]. You have broken us but we would like to become friends at some point in time, I believe I have the ability to do it, despite my loss. God is good. That is why I want to do this.”
don’t even get me started on the judge.
she’s gonna also hug and give her personal bible:
Did I wake up in an alternate universe?
i had to ask myself if the males in this family loved botham?
the mother is the only one going hard.
if the tables were turned,
and botham killed amber,
he would have been in jail for 1900 years.
there would be no hugs and “let’s be friends” from her family.
they would have been calling for his execution.
This is all very weird.
many of us on social media can’t bring ourselves to this level of forgiveness.
some black folks are too forgiving to those who violate us.
many will excuse bad behavior from other races,
but will roast TF out of our own.
it’s that church behavior that pretty much ruins us.
they’ll forgive a stone cold murderer,
but will never forgive their own children for being gay.
let me say it on the loud speaker:
Church folks will forgive all kinds of trash,
but the moment one of their kids is gay,
they’ll be the first to abuse and then throw them out in the streets.
“I’ll never forgive him/her for being gay!” – they say.
where is this same forgiving energy for trump and his band of hyenas?
it’s all fuckin’ ridiculous to me.
i legit hate everything right now.
lowkey: i feel like religion was one of the worst things to happen to black folks.
